What Is A Clash Royale Team Battle?

A Clash Royale team battle will essentially be a new game mode that allows two players from the same clan to wage battle against two players of another clan.

How Do You Start A Clash Royale Team Battle?

Similar to Friendly Battles, you can begin a Clan Team Battle by going to your clan page. There will be a button at the top in the spot where the clan chest would normally be. Press the button to send an alert to clan members that you want to start a Clan Battle. Once another clan member accepts you call to battle, the two of you will be taken to the arena and the battle and prepare to battle.

How Can Team Members Communicate During Clan Battle?

The ability to communicate and plan attacks is limited in this mode but there are a couple features baked into the team battle mode that should help with strategy. Before the battle begins, you will get a quick look at what cards your teammate has in his deck. Then, during the battle, anytime your teammate is preparing to play a card, a picture of the card will appear on your game screen in the spot where he/she is preparing to deploy it. This will allow you a quick moment to think about supporting troops you could play to boost his/her efforts.

How Does The New Team Battle Game Mode Different From Single Player Battles?

Battle mostly proceeds in the same way as single player battles but there are some distinctive difference which we’ve listed below.

  • King Tower – on screen you will appear to have two king towers, but they will still have the same amount of health as just one king tower
  • Elixir –both you and your teammate will have your own pool of elixir so you won’t have to share it.
  • Battle Speed – since so much elixir will be flung around, the game play/elixir speed has been slowed down to 85 percent. In overtime, it has been slowed down by 70 percent.
  • Elixir Collectors – will only gather elixir for the player that deployed it.
  • Buff Spells (eg: Rage, Clone) – when deployed these will affect the entire team, not just troops of deploying player.

Can You Win Any Chests Or Awards In 2v2 Team Battle Game Mode?

Initially this was going to be a reward free option like Friendly Battles, but Supercell decided to make them more enticing by giving rewards similar to the Clan Chest awards. 

When Do Team Battles Start? How Often Can You Play?

It appears that Clash Royale Team Battles will be a special feature appearing every other weekend between Clan Chests.  This means every weekend there will be special perks for playing with Clan members. One weekend there will be the Clan Chest option, the next weekend the Clan Battle option. The events will run Friday through Monday. As for the official start date, it hasn't been announced yet. However, some recent unconfirmed Reddit leaks suggest Team Battles will become available March 31. We’ll update this post once an official start date has been announced.
