  • 1vs1

You play in an arena -again – in a one versus one fight. You are a summoner and can bring many different troops on the battlefield. The goal is to break the enemies buildings without letting him destroy yours. That’s also a game of pure strategy. You must have a defense, an attack… There is a bunch of cards that you can use to personalize your game. Making it more unique. Your deck won’t make the game. But the way you use your cards will become lethal to your opponent.

Resource management

Each [X] second, both players get a point of elixir. With this one they can summon troops or buildings helping in the quest of the opponent. The more elixir you have, the stronger the troops you can summon. You have an interest in accumulating the elixir. The problem is that you can’t stock more than 10 of it. You must use it! The goal is just to annihilate the attacks of your enemy by using less elixir than he is. Or maybe you counter attack or build some towers which can help in the siege. You have to manage the elixir. That’s where you can see the differences between players. You and your opponent have exactly the same amount of it, the deal is to use it more efficiently than your enemy.

Mastering the choices

Your deck is composed of 8 cards. You chose them between more than 70 different cards with different effects. You are making a strategy out of the cards that you are choosing. It will become the difference between the win or the lose. Make sure that they are congruent. Some cards can make combos while other don’t work well together.
