Considering Clash Royale is commonly referred to as a competitive tower defence game, it may come as no surprise that the game involves playing a fair amount of defence as you also try to take down enemy towers.

Here are some tips on how to defend like a pro.

Learn your counters

The best defence in Clash Royale is to effectively counter your opponent's cards.

Sure, the Prince might be a hugely powerful offensive weapon, but drop a Skeleton Army on him and he'll go down in seconds.

Keep a mental note of the cards opponents use to easily take down yours and adapt your strategy accordingly - while keeping the idea of Elixir advantage at the forefront of your mind.

Use your towers

The idea inClash Royale is to keep units away from your towers, but don't forget that they aren't completely defenseless.

The archers on your towers can bring down weak units with ease, while placing ranged units like Spear Goblins, Musketeers, or Archers behind your towers can help you form an effective defence while keeping your units alive for an offensive push.
