Balloons are incredibly dangerous. They're airborne, fast, and deal massive damage to your towers if you don't bring them down quickly.
And that's the trick to bringing down a Balloon - get a ranged unit on it as quickly as possible. If you're fast enough, Spear Goblins, Archers, or Minions can get it down before it gets close to your tower.
The Baby Dragon does decent splash and point damage, has a good amount of health, and is an airborne unit. This makes him an incredibly useful asset for most builds.
Countering it isn't easy though. While Archers and Spear Goblins are pretty good at dealing with most air units, the splash damage from its fireballs make short work of them if you just drop them down.
Boy has 148Apps got a treat in store for you. Today we recorded an off-the-cuff podcast in dedication to Clash Royale - a game that has caused a serious riff amongst a number of Steel Media team members.
Don't despair though, because it lead to this - the first EVER 148Apps Podcast, and we invite you to listen to it despite the fact it's technically terrible, commercially worthless, and full to the absolute brim of complete and utter drivel.
Also, as an extra bonus feature, check out the screenshots below for the full results of our two matches during the podcast and the secret three that happened afterwards in which I utterly thrashed co-host Alex Rennie. Poor Alex.

So, you’ve got Clash Royale. You find yourself playing it while on the toilet, walking the dog, watching TV, even over the dinner table. But you’re not amazing at it yet, and you just have to win that next battle before you go to sleep.
Fear not! For I have taken the time to play this game intensely (for seven whole days) and will share my wisdom. Wisdom that has been gained by various means: Losing a lot of games in a row (and throwing my phone across the room many times), reading other Clash Royale guides, refreshing the Reddit page every 10 minutes, and experimenting with my deck and tactics.
In the interest of fairness, I will disclose that I spent £7.99 on a pack of gems after the first hour of play. Don’t all get angry though - I have a paying job and can afford such luxuries. Plus I wanted to thrash all the weaker players who basically can’t afford such largesse.
It worked - I rapidly moved onto Arena 3, taking many a three crown win with me. However, the fun stopped there. I came across players who actually had tactics, good cards, and more importantly, trolled me excellently when they were winning. The number of ‘crying face emojis’ I had sent to me as a Giant is about to smash my King Tower… well you can probably understand my frustration.
So I researched for my own selfish reasons - I want to be the best in my clan. But, because I’m a nice guy, I’m sharing my findings with you.
I’ll preface - I’m at Arena 5, so don’t be thinking you can rock in here as an Arena 7 player and think this stuff is useful - it’s almost certainly terrible advice for very good players and you can take it with a pinch of salt. For the 99%, it’s invaluable and you will be praising the ground I walk on after reading these delightful tips.
So, I can’t help you with general life tips I’m afraid - you’re on your own there. I can stop you looking like a total fool though when you’re playing Clash Royale against yet another opponent with random characters as a screenname - but you have to follow this advice very carefully.
Look at the watch, watch it swing, follow the movement, 3, 2, 1... you’re under my spell.
Now we’re getting somewhere. Hopefully you’ve read my other guides where I explain how not to be a loser. If you haven’t, then you’re already a loser and you might as well go right to the bottom of this article and click on the links. Like, right now. Otherwise, feel free to read on...
