Clash Royale Tier List (King’s Gambit Season)

Our Clash Royale tier list has been divided into four separate tiers. Character cards listed in the A Tier should be used as often as possible in play, whereas those in the D Tier should be avoided as much as possible.

  • A Tier: Character cards in this tier are undoubtedly the best ones to use in Clash Fest.
  • B Tier: Although not the most robust character cards, they can still be devastating in multiple scenarios to help change the course of a match.
  • C Tier: While these character cards can be overlooked in most situations, they can still do a decent job in specific scenarios.
  • D Tier: These characters should be avoided as much as you can. On top of being reasonably impactless cards, they also waste a notable amount of elixir during battles.

Let’s dive in and check out the Clash Royale tier list for the Goblin Party Season without further ado.

Best Clash Royale decks from the Tier List

After the recent changes to decks at the start of Clash Fest in September, some of the strongest Clash Royale character cards in the current meta belong to the offensive category. To stand the best chance at taking down your foes, we recommend that you try to make your deck from the A and B-tier lists.

However, having a good balance between offense and defense in your decks is crucial. After all, you can never know your opponent’s equipped character cards before the match begins. Therefore, here are a few decks that you can try out for your subsequent battles:
