Clash Royale, the real-time strategy video game, has grown massively in popularity over the years, and the latest point of discussion online is the game’s new Sudden Death Challenge.

Gamers have been attempting the challenge and sharing tactics online to try and complete Sudden Death.

Here is everything you need to know about Sudden Death, including what the challenge actually is, the best deck to use to try to complete the challenge, and player reactions. Read on to find out more…

What is the Sudden Death challenge?

Sudden Death is the newest game on Clash Royale. Players have to create tournament decks using unlocked cards ranging from Common to Champion. You must use the tournament deck to take down a tower, thus winning the challenge.

You can assemble your deck using either your self-created tournament deck, or one that has already been built.

The in-game description reads:

“The match starts in Sudden Death – whoever takes the First tower wins! Three losses, and you’re out, but you still have a chance to reset your losses and continue to play.”

The challenge begins on May 8th, and is one of the best ways to earn extra Gold for card upgrades, according to Sportskeeda.

What’s the best deck to use for the Sudden Death Challenge?

Gaming analyst Ishaan Mahajan wrote that one of the best decks to use is the miner Loon Cycle, which contains the following cards:

Inferno Dragon
Ice Golem
Barbarian Barrel
Mini Pekka

The cards with the highest DPS (damage/hit speed) are Mini Pekkas, Balloons, and Inferno Dragons.

Mahajan says: “This popular Sudden Death challenge deck is aggressive and capable of leading players to winning multiple challenge battles. Elixir should be utilized carefully so that players can fight against the enemy’s attacks while still reacting with aggressive cards.”
