Most notably, the newest card in the game—the Royal Ghost—is having its damage decreased, while its hit speed and invisibility delay will be slightly increased.

Other relatively new cards, such as the Zappies and Hunter, will also be altered. The Zappies will now target both ground and air units, while the Hunter's range and bullet spread are being decreased.

The Night Witch is getting a buff, since her initial Bats will now spawn quicker—although Bats are being slightly nerfed in this patch, as their hit speed is being increased by 0.1 seconds. Additionally, Lava Hound, Mini P.E.K.K.A, and Lumberjack will all receive at least a five percent increase to their health.

Finally, two buildings—the Goblin Hut and the Mortar—will be altered in this update. The Mortar's minimum range is being decreased, while the Goblin Hut's spawn speed is being increased by .1 seconds—which will result in one less Spear Goblin spawning.

This balance update is sure to shake up the Clash Royale meta, and all of the changes will go live Wednesday, Jan. 24.
