I’m not sure what I expected when I downloaded Clash Royale last week. Did I think it’d be so bad that I’d have no choice but to delete it? Did I think that Supercell would have completely changed its formula, despite the fact that Clash of Clans is one of the most successful experiments in the history of mobile gaming?
Whatever my expectations were, Clash Royale immediately exceeded them. At least until it forced me to stop playing.
