Overview:

You are trying to counter your enemy's push (Barbarians or Giant) with a Minion Horde and suddenly there's a flash on the screen and your Minion Horde is gone. You have been Zapped! You don't have any other troop left to counter the push and they are already trashing your tower. What to do?

We'll teach you how to counter this annoying 2 elixir spell card to evade that nasty Zap!

Strengths:

Cheaper than the Arrows spell, Zap spell is becoming popular on Arena 5 and up. Not only it eliminates low HP troops, it also stuns incoming high HP troops such as Prince or Dark Prince to give the caster a chance to defend and counter.

How To Counter The Zap Spell:

1. High HP troops

If you already noticed that your opponent is packing this spell, make sure he'll use it on high HP troops such as Giant Skeleton, Giant, Prince, Dark Prince, even Golem. Zap will never work on them.

2. Cheap Cards

Trick him to use his spell to cheap cards like Goblins, Archers, and Skeletons so you can use your Skeleton Army and Minion Horde without fear of having them zapped.

3. Timing

Time the cycle of this spell card. Once you've noticed he already used it, that is the perfect time to whip out your low HP troops to wreak havoc to his troops and towers. Not unless he still has another spell on his deck like the Arrows!

Overall:

With just 2 elixirs and will cause a stun to high HP troops, more and more players switch to the Zap spell. But if you are still on Arena 4 below, stick with the Arrows Spell first and you'll earn this most revered card on Arena 5!
