Clash Royale February 2023 Balance Changes

Hello Clashers, The Clash Royale February 2023 Balance Changes patch note is now available with the official statement from Clash Royale Team. On February 2023, there will be Balance Changes on Log, Monk, Archer Queen, Phoenix, Fire Cracker, Goblin Gang, Knight, Rocket Launcher and Archer Queen.

Here are the full Patch Note for February 2023 Balance Changes in Clash Royale.



Hit Speed: -0.1sec [11% faster]

Monk’s use rate has declined a lot since the last change, so something has to be done to match other Champions.


First Hit: -0.4sec [40% faster]

Firecracker sometimes doesn’t shoot when there are enemies right in front of her (looking at you, Skeleton Army). This change will allow her to shoot a target faster after locking on.


Hit Speed: -0.2sec [18% faster]

Archers are overshadowed by other ranged support cards, particularly Dart Goblin. We want them to be more viable in the current meta by being a viable anti-swarm Troop with decent DPS.

Goblin Gaint

Backpack Goblins Hit Speed: -0.2sec [12% faster]

The use rates of Goblin Giant are low. The backpack gobbos are this card’s unique feature, so let’s make it stand out even more!


Hitpoints: +3%

Knight has been losing out to other cards like Valkyrie and, to some extent, Royal Ghost. So a buff is needed to bring him back into the meta, highlighting his tankiness specifically. He’s still good stats for the cost, though.


Crown Tower Damage: -17%

Rocket can be devastating as a finisher, especially in Sudden Death. In order to make a Rocket deck less of a cycle race in the endgame, we are making Rocket less effective against Crown Towers


‘Reborn’ Phoenix: 80% of total Damage and Hitpoints

Despite a few nerfs in the past, Phoenix remains one of the strongest cards in the game in both use rate and win rate.

With this change we want to kill two birds with one stone (pun absolutely intended) by scaling down a reborn Phoenix’s strength and also making it look different to a fresh Phoenix by reducing its visual effects and size.

A reborn Phoenix is the Phoenix that returns to play after hatching from the Phoenix Egg.

The Log

Pushback: 1 tile > 0.7 tiles (30% reduction)

The Log is a very unique and versatile spell. Maybe a bit too versatile since its pushback ability makes it stand it out of the competition with other spells. This change is supposed to make it a bit less versatile and not provide such an advantage when paired with ranged defenses.

Archer Queen

First Hit: +0.2s [200% slower]

The most used Champion needs a nerf (but she’s the Queen?)!

She now takes a little longer to charge up her crossbow before taking the first shot on a target.
