Check out what's new in the November 5, 2018 Balance Update!
Because of the new update, you will be seeing a lot of P.E.K.K.A in the Arena. Combined with the powerful Double Prince, how do you think you can counter them? We'll teach you how!


The June 21, 2016 update increased the Prince's damage by 9% and the P.E.K.K.A's damage by 8% more. This means you will be seeing more and more people using the P.E.K.K.A and the Prince. Combining the two newly buffed cards: P.E.K.K.A + Prince and an added Dark Prince to make the P.E.K.K.A + Double Prince deck can spell death if you don't know how to counter them.



Combining the P.E.K.K.A's high HP and DPS, the Prince's speed and charging damage, and the Dark Prince's speed, charging and splash damage, this is definitely a trio of death! They will crush anything in their way including towers!

Your opponent is probably using the same cards as this deck. Knowing what troops he has can give you an advantage of knowing how to counter.

How to Counter P.E.K.K.A + Double Prince:


The main deck to use to counter the P.E.K.K.A + Double Prince push are the fast cycle decks. This will make sure that they are always separated! You don't want them to be much of a trio or else it will be harder to counter.

Because you have cheap fast troops, the goal here is to chip away their HP inch by inch and make sure the three are always separated. Since the Minions only costs 3 elixirs and are flying troops, start by deploying them on top of the P.E.K.K.A. After that, drop the Skeletons right in the middle and deploy the Spear Goblins right away at a good distance but can still reach the three. The Minions will take care of the P.E.K.K.A, the Skeletons and Spear Goblins will take care of the Prince and you can add the Inferno Tower right in the middle. It will take care of the Dark Prince and the last would be the Goblins to finish the deed. This technique works if the three are pushing or even if just the two. Always make the Inferno Tower as your last choice as it eats up more elixirs.

To make sure they are always separated or not charging your towers, use your Royal Giant. The Royal Giant will make sure that they are busy enough for you to make an attack and he will also chip away some tower HP too.

Aside from using the Minions and Skeletons to lure her in the middle, you can also use the Skeleton Army to drive her crazy!


Separating them is the key strategy here to overcome the death of these trio. Always know what troop to deploy and where to put them. This can be your win or lose decision. One slip and it could mean losing the game and losing your precious trophies. It can also bring you down an arena. Think before you click -- or press!
