Season 38 will be coming to Clash Royale in August 2022 and so will some balance changes! Supercell hasn't officially released the full notes yet, however, we have our hands on leaks that suggest that they're not holding back against the type of changes they're willing to introduce. Season 37, Mini P.E.K.K.A's Dream, did not see any introduction of balance changes when it was released at the beginning of July. So the potential changes we're seeing right now have probably been in at least two seasons of development.

Without further ado, let's take at the August 2022 balance changes!

The leak comes courtesy of the reliable Clash Royale source, RoyaleAPI. We are seeing a fair number of changes that will be targetting troops and Champions alike. Keep in mind that these changes are a work in progress and are not final. They may change depending on future in-game tests that Supercell will surely conduct to ensure the changes are well-balanced.

Regardless, here are the changes in full detail!
