There you go clashers! It seems like a lot of changes indeed. There were several reasons that led Supercell to announce this update. Some players thought that some characters from the Clash of Clans universe did not live up to the lore in Clash Royale, such as Golems, which is why they were balanced. Others complained of overpowered characters which had to be nerfed. And many other changes were based on creating a consistent game that did not have contradictory game mechanics. We can definitely see that Supercell is trying its best to listen to the community and deliver in the best way they can, and for this we say Thank You!
