Clash Royale Dealing With Stress And Tilt Guide

Clash Royale Dealing With Stress And Tilt Guide by Shadrach77

From what I see, this game triggers emotional responses in many of us like few other games do. As I fall from high 1700s back down to the 1400 with loss after rage-inducing loss (using, mind you, the same deck that took me from ~1500 up to near 1800), I find myself having to reflect on the things that matter.

Things I’ve learned:

  • You will go up, and you will go down. This game is 10 steps forward, 9 steps back. I’ve invented a few swear words during the times I forgot that fact.
  • There is no hurry to “max out.” Enjoy every battle. Even the ones after dropping 250 trophies and you feel like a pauper in rags fighting the real bums for scraps.
  • You busted the first tower down within 30 seconds & you think you’ve got this newb beaten? You just lost, because you got complacent & here comes your opponent with a card you weren’t planning for. Yeah, that’s right. Half the game goes by then he drops a lvl 2 pekka. It busts through your tower while you’re frantically cycling through to get to something to stop it. Meanwhile, he’s dropped that wizard again, some minions, and WHAT THE??? ANOTHER pekka! Point is, you need to re-read the Tortoise & the Hare.
  • If your plan is to “just earn this one chest before _____ going to bed/going to work/getting off the toilet/eating dinner, etc”, then plan to stay up late/be late to work/have numb legs/have cold dinner, etc because, as you know, you only win after losing enough times that you’ve dropped down to a lower arena. It’s just a fact of life, so you may as well get used to it.
  • Sometimes, as a F2P person, you’ll find yourself up against a P2W with cards 3 levels above yours. Yeah, I’ve got nothing for that. Sometimes I play “hold the line.” Other times I just do one of these & accept my fate.
  • When I’m doing well, I’m tempted to spend a few bucks. Nothing wrong with that. Fortunately, the “9 steps back” part kicks in before I do so and I tell myself there’s now F-ing way I’m spending money on this crap. Then later I calm down & remember that there really is no rush.
  • Expectations & attitude going into a match have a huge impact on your reaction to the results. If you go in with the goal of raising trophies and/or moving up an arena, prepare to be disappointed. If you go in taking it one match at a time, looking to the here & now, you’ll be better off. Also, good manners helps. Be polite, no matter that the jagoff that cheesed you last match did the crying sad-face 3 times at the end. Say “good game” & walk away. Cry in a pillow later.

Well, anyway, typing that out has calmed me down enough that I think I’m going to try to battle my way back up to Builder before getting my next chest. Should only take a couple of wins…

EDIT: I though it was obvious but I wanted to add the disclaimer that this was written as sardonic humor while coming to grips with my current downward spiral. It is just a game, & we need to remember to not get worked up about it. Like I said, I think many of us are not used to a game inciting such emotion.

  1. I have experienced such rage at this that it’s leaked into other areas of my life. Never before has a game – ANY game, card, video, or otherwise – brought out my bad reactions as this one has. I’ve tried to keep it in perspective, but failed several times now. A few days ago I uninstalled it from my phone out of fear and shame, and I don’t know that I can ever go back.

    This is very good insight and observation, and I hope that more readers will take something away from it.

  2. Thank you for this! Clash Royale provokes such gamer rage in me sometimes and I’m glad I’m not the only one. I have to keep reminding myself, “It’s just a game.”
