Overall:

In Clash Royale, you cannot choose who your opponent is. It is decided upon by the game's matchmaking algorithm. So how does this work?

The matchmaking system matches players with similar trophy level. So if you are at level 5, your opponent's trophy level is also level 5. The amount of trophies does not play a key role here, so your opponent may have more or fewer trophies than you have. However, Supercell tells the us that defeating an opponent who has more trophies than you will guarantee you more trophies to win.

While this experience is quite seamless, many express their dismay of Clash Royale's matchmaking issues. To many, basing the matchmaking by trophy levels might be a problem to players as it may seem not fair to others. Some think it's a glitch or the matchmaking system is broken. We can confirm that it's really not rigged. It's just the way it is for now.

Clash Royale's matchmaking issues has enraged many players. Some, especially free-to-play players feel it is now difficult to win games. According to some comments, many are now playing less often. Also, trophy dropping is becoming a trend. This is those who drop their trophies and then start another push against players who have not upgraded their cards. This is done to maintain a good win rate in their profile.

In the meantime, let's still play fair and wait for more updates about this issue

Will clan wars become a phenomenon in Clash Royale? Will it be something that Supercell will launch? Find out more information here.

Overview:

In truth, Clash Royale is mostly about plays and counterplays. However, what you can do or achieved is limited to the cards that you have. It will be even more difficult if you are up against a player who dropped their trophies in order to get back their lose count and turn it into win counts.

  • I'm Arena 5 and constantly getting matched with Arena 8/9s. -- 01:49, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Dude. Do people really suck so bad at this game that I have to constantly face level 13 gloating bitches while I'm 3 levels lower? Like, look at your king level. You're obviously not good. And I can't even win a single match sometimes because of this bs matchmaking system. Can't wait till I'm level capped so I don't have to deal with this shit. -- 08:50, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Supercell always makes an uneven match making...whwnever we win it makes us loose continuosly 5-6 matches by giving all maxed oppenents..this is completely disgusting...fuck off... -- 11:40, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Matching system is retarded for goblin giant draft challenge. First match gets matched with people of the same trophy, second match its confirmed I will get matched with people who are 2 arenas above my current trophy count. This is bullshit. I'm never getting that 10k. Fuck supercell. Fuck clash royale. Delete -- 01:32, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
  • I’m a level 8 player and have been constantly being matched with level 10s in 1v1 or 2v2 with card levels 3-4 levels higher. This started after I did the touchdown challenge with a friend who was level 11. My last 2v2 on ladder was against two 4K trophies and I’m only 3k. What just happened plz fix. -- 17:06, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Why can’t card level of the deck selected be factored in to the matchmaking algorithm? -- 11:32, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I don't see inferno drags for days, but as soon as I switch to golem deck, inferno drags are in every counter deck -- 16:47, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I even dropped to 2800 from 4100 and you get paired with L10 n 11 rares still wtf , idiot players with max cards dropping down to dominate people on 2v2 wow -- 11:00, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I did not saw a rocket for 3 days, check what happened when I switched to my sparky deck.https://statsroyale.com/profile/PRCL09RY/battles -- 00:39, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure how Supercell can say that "We can confirm that it's really not rigged. It's just the way it is for now." Well I'm telling you its rigged otherwise I wouldn't get paired every single 2v2 match with terrible teammates. If I told you how consistently bad the 2v2 match-ups are you would not believe me. Every opponent is maxed out cards max golems, max legendaries etc... my cards and my teammates trophy levels are thousands lower than my opponents team. You're losing paying customers fast!!! -- 14:17, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
  • i don’t see a trend of higher lower level oponents than me. sometimes they are higher, sometimes they are lower or even equal. what i see is that if you change deck, you will loose many games until you lv up the card. on 2v2, your tower is amix of your an co-player tower lv. if you pick high lv cards, you will pick enemes with high lv cards too, so basicly this game you need to stay in the meta if you want trophies or stay with your deck if you want to just have fun... and don’t play too many hours a day. -- 19:28, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Simply matching players agains others based on amount of trophies is plain lazy coding and thus you prove you aren't meant to code. Stop being lazy and use the lots of money you greedy bastards are gathering and fix the game -- 09:36, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
  • So i have been playing since almost day one. I have spent 20$ total. I am at 4700 trophies and almost have a max deck. The matchmaking isn't rigged. I am higher than people in my clan who have spent 100s on the game. -- 16:01, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I confirmed, there is something wrong with the algorithm. It is collecting the player deck data, analyze and choose opponent with counter card. Very not professional act! -- 13:23, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
  • The reason people drop trophies is to rake in the clan chest crowns. Keep two accounts - one to beneifit from the clan chest - and one to be the worker bee and play down to rake in crowns on the weekends -- 03:20, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

  • .... seriously: pad yourself on the shoulder if your able to compete with higher levelled players than you. Instead of whining about not being repeatedly matched against less-skilled players and dooming them to keep losing. What even the POINT in trophy dropping (other than claiming it’s apparently a thing). Inadvertently the system seems to rank based on stupidity as well. -- 03:41, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  • ...if you don’t want to play against people either different card levels, then challenges and tournaments are for you. If you’re so great you’ll easily hoard all the card you needs through 12-winning challenges.... -- 03:40, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Wow, this is utterly thee dumbest critique against the trophy rankings I’ve heard. If you win more matches than you lose you tend to rise, so do others - so yeah they are those you are matched against. Same the other way around. It’s dumbing just to read people whining they deserve a better rank on the ladder if they are not able to beat them. Basically it all boils down to a critique about the whole concept of card levelling - a core concept of the game - and that’s a whole another discussion..... -- 03:38, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  • So the level 8 players getting matched against level 11 players because they pushed their trophies high.....that's not rigged that is you in try hard....is it rigged for the lvl 11 getting matched against you as well? Two side seats to ever coin. Keep your trophies where you fight more people your own level. Problem solved. -- 02:56, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

  • the matchmaking is absolute garbage there is no "algorithm" behind it as the article states. It just takes whoever is searching at closest trophies and puts them in a game. Level 11 vs. level 7? legit in the eyes of these cancerous greedy developers -- 14:33, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
  • This article is absolutely stupid. I got 2 free to play accounts right now and no matter how high I upgrade my cards, i still get matched up with even higher leveled players. My first account is level 11 at 4300 and I only play level 12 people. But what is even more annoying, is my second account. It's level 7 in arena 9. I do understand that there aren't many level 7s in arena 9, but how is it possible that I get matched up with level 10s and even level 11s? That's not the average level in arena 9. -- 09:43, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

  • I went on here to ask about rigen matchmaking and I think it is rigged. I think this article is lying and I have some evidence. When I played I had been using a rocket card but then chose to switch to a mirror card. At first I started going up but after two matches my enemies decks changed into ones that can be countered by the rocket so I dropped down to my original rank which was about 60 to 90 lower. After noticing the trend I switched back to my rocket deck and suddenly the other players deck changed ba -- 13:42, 2 December 2017 (UTC)
  • My bet is that if you have paid and spent money on cards, money, or gems, they put you in a different queue. Us free to play get people that are levels above us. Who are the people getting matches vs people at lower levels? The people who spend money on the game. They are about making money. My guess is they are trying to frustrate people into spending money on this game. -- 18:08, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
  • My highest trophies is 3795 and currently I am at 3569, why? Because I lost 13 FUCKING MATCHES!!! Supercell wants you to lose more! I don't recommend to download this money hungry game -- 14:06, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Matchmaking is rigged!!!! 90% of the time im paired up with an enemy 1 level (even 2 levels above me!) FUCK THIS GAME! -- 16:37, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Matchmaking is rigged and it’s designed to infuriate you!!! -- 16:35, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
  • I am level 8 and playing pekka deck and quit proud of my pekka level. But why the hell all of my opponent is level 9 in a tournament and most of them has a very high level cards and most of my opponent has either inferno or inferno dragon. FUCK THIS GAME. not worth to download. -- 07:29, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
  • the fucking matchmaking is rigged. fuck supercell. supercell is such black nazi niggas. -- 17:10, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Wow tournament each match was a level above me apart from 1 with much higher areana troops. How do people get arena 8 troops when the highest trophy count is 7. Time to look for a different game to spend my money on clash of clans is also gone down hill. Shame -- 07:38, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
  • How are do you get rank up when level 8 is match to 10. This game is getting as bad as coc -- 07:23, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
  • To correct my last comment it's Purple Dragons with a space in between and I have a lv 2 lumberjack, inferno dragon, miner, ice wizard still don't use them or have any problem with opponents. You just have to grind it out to get good cards and high trophy counts good luck all clashers -- 12:07, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Ok I've been playing this since day one I'm free to play I am at lv 10 in arena 8 I have almost every card available to me several legendaries some at level 2 and haven't yet go a super magic chest I get lengenderies out of free chests most lol. And I don't even use any legenderies in my deck still tear people apart. Don't believe me Purpledragons is my clan I'm desert fox find me and look at my card count and deck. I've been playing same deck since arena 5 never had problem with matches NOT RIGGED. -- 12:01, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
  • I PLAY WITH GOLEM DECK AND ONE TIME I GET TO PLAY AGAINST PLAYERS WITH EITHER PEKKA OR INFERNO DRAGON... I COULDNT DO ANYTHING FOR 6 MATCHES.... STRAIGHT... WHY THE FUCK IS THAT... I SUGGEST NOBODY PLAY THIS GAME... THIS IS SCRIPTED... FUCKERS -- 22:07, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

  • No sense in playing these games if you want to play free-to-play. My wife is obsessed and I'm bored with being a level 7 (never dropped a dime) and playing against level 10s consistently. Not fair at all. All I can do is spam Wow! Wow! Wow! Thanks! Good Game! Lol..done. -- 15:50, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
  • I cant anymore. Im level 8 and fought 4 fucking level 10s in a row. All which after beating me b by small margin teased me at not be in able to stop their spam of cards with no counter because of level. FUCKING FIX THIS SKILL JUST GETS YOU TO FIGHT IMPOSSIBLE MATCHES LATER YO NEVER TRUELY WIN -- 14:48, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Yea game matchmaking is retarded. They really should not be putting you against people 3 levels above who literally need to use zero skill to win. I have outplayed people all game but thy end up winning with 100 crown tower health because their 2 level advantage. Skill is only seen at equal playing fields -- 08:55, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I'm a medium pay to play I've spent 20$ on the game but when I'm at 3100 trophies and I find people with maxed out cards and always specific cards that counter mine I really want to delete your game. It shouldn't be based on trophies because when my commons are under lvl 10 and !y rares under 8 and epics under 5 and legendaries under 3 . When I find people with cards that are over 2 levels above my cards it will never be about placement or decisions or strategy. It's about card lvl it's unfair. Pls change -- 03:10, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
  • How can u call that a matchamaking? U don't count carts? That's bull**** if my opponent has the same cards and do exactly the same as me at the same time and he has more lvl and better cards he will win. That's not fair at any point. I'm at 1900 trophies I'm lvl 6 and I'm facing people lvl 9 and 8 with cards with 3 more lvl than mine. -- 05:26, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
  • nothing free in this world. F2P people support by P2P player if not the game will shutdown so coz no money to maintain it. Its a fair win win situation -- 03:35, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
  • for current update trophy have no effect. its depend how many your card are. coz im level 1 with 63/72 card even i drop my trophy until arena 2 im still facing level 7 and above player -- 03:28, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
  • I disagree. Trophies are a 2nd or 3rd factor. How many cards you have is the first factor. -- 15:42, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

  • The algorithm deficiencies affect all players, so you are advised not to pay. The game is rigged to mis-match your cards if you play it for too long. Mis-matching happens according to how many players are queuing. This is not a game of skill; it's just a card collection game. Whatever you think about F2P or P2P, Supercell want the cash and that's their priority. We are talking about a multi billion dollar turnover company majority owned by Japanese investors. -- 10:06, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
  • And when I lose I change deck and I get enemies with counter deck every time I change my ddeck enemies do same rigges -- 18:36, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • It's like I'm level 6 and I am permanenly going vs lvl9 or 8 and on main account I'm lvl9 and I go vs lvl10 and lvl11 and when I reach leg arena next day lose 6battles before I get chest they just want money -- 18:32, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Simple way to tell if your gonna lose, drop a lightning spell and nothing happens, then your going to lose that game. Even if you have 3 buildings left and your opponent has 1. So any money I have spent on the game has basically been stolen from me. -- 18:21, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
  • SuperCell doesn't allow you to get anywhere past 3500 unless you just have extremely good luck, or if you buy a lot of gems and the algorithm may cool down a little but after it will get back up, supercell does all the matchmaking -- 03:34, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
  • It's rigged. SuperCell is just trying to make money off of us by breaking the NDA agreement... -- 23:24, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
  • matchmaking is 100% rigged, even a supercell dev said so. The post got deleted fast -- 22:06, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
  • If you don't believe me? Search up my clan. It is called "Indecisive" and I am the leader. Battle Strat. Your cards all are based off of luck that you get. So are super magical, legendary, and epic chests. If you want advice or help or anything, then Join my clan if you need and i will try my best to help you out. Otherwise, just stop complaining about your seven loss streak because you fought pay2win people. -- 16:29, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
  • you know what? people need to stop whining their asses off about the matchmaking. I know its hard. So what if you are paired with people that are a level above you? learn how to play and you wont complain. to all those that are complaining about a certain card being able to destroy their entire deck? maybe you should change it, modify it, or get a new deck entirely. I am a level nine at 3200 trophies. I fight level tens and elevens with cards two levels higher than me all the time. So suck it up. -- 16:23, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I'm level 7 and I'm facing level 9's consistently in arena 7. Also the level of my cards are always out matched. Also every person I face now a days got either a wizard, princess or miner and I only got a lava hound which is useless because it takes 7 elixir! -- 21:55, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Dear those who think the matchmaking is not rigged, you are obviously a retard who is in arena 4 trying to brag how you're a level 8 in legendary arena. Now how about you ask me "I see that you lost 7 times in a row". Because I don't know, it's happened to all of us. And get this, whenever I face a person one level lower than me, they cards that are like 1 or even 2 levels higher than mine. I face more emote spammers when I go on a losing streak. (Doesn't work now but it used to before). -- 21:32, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

  • I can see how you get paired with people that are a higher level than you, but I don't think the system is as easy as described here: If you use one the same deck, you might win some times and after some time, and sometimes straight away, you get to counter only one or two decks which are best at countering the deck you started with! I get that this seems fair, but can be very enraging and very often also! -- 12:18, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
  • I can see how you get paired with people that are a higher level than yu, -- 12:15, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Just match is by tower level not throphies. Same problem original clash makes -- 02:19, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Matchmaking is A1, if you play against higher lvl players than you that means you're a G. -- 06:05, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Matchmaking system isnt rigged. Im at 2900 trophies and Im only level 8 with level 8 troops -- 15:43, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
  • *update from October 14th* Guess what? I'm now at over 2600 trophies. And why? Because I know how to balance my deck and use my cards properly. I am now level eight, and face level tens and level nines every single time I battle. I beat most of them, and when I do lose, it's a very, very close game. Why do you think that I'm up here as a f2p? Because I can balance my deck and use my cards properly. -- 19:56, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Not rigged my ass. How come when i have 1480 trophies everything's dandy, and when I have 1500+ trophies i start to lose to opponents that are clearly p2w players? -- 19:42, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

  • *Continued from below* I have faced all of the legendaries, and beaten them all. I faced level tens and beaten them. Its not about rigged matchmaking. Its about using your cards correctly. Go watch gaming with molt or nickatnyte on youtube so you can learn your shit. -- 02:49, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
  • my god you people. This game is not about getting matched with people the same level or lower than you. its about how you play your cards. I was king level two in arena five, and I'm a F2P. What does that tell you? maybe you all just dont know how to play properly. I am now at 2250 trophies as a level 7. level two epics, level five rares, and level eight commons. This game is not about what cards you dont have. It is about using the ones you do have properly. Learn how to play -- 02:47, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
  • Fuck supercell. The matchmaking is rigged, once you start winning for a while they immediately pair you with someone who's deck can counter yours. Even worse someone that's far higher than you. I was in lvl 8 and they paired me with a lvl 10. Now I want to hear the bullshit algorithm for that. And one other stupid thing they do is to give you cheap opponents later. Have been paired with a lvl 5 & 6 when I was at lvl 8, that is their bullshit way of consoling you after you have lost loads of trophies. -- 18:50, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
  • I can confirm in fact that matchmaking is rigged. i have 2 accounts, both at around 3000 trophies. 2 different kind of decks. ones a hog rider deck and one is a lava hound deck. with my hog rider deck, i very rarely play anyone with inferno tower(lava hound weakness) but with my lava hound deck, every other match is against inferno towers. its set up so you cant get anywhere and it wants you to buy cards. completely rigged. not to mention how dumb it is that legendaries are so unevenly distributed. -- 19:48, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
  • j -- 16:56, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Please stop lying about matchmaking. It is clearly rigged as far as i can see. For proof, my cusin and i have completely different decks, we are at same levels and he was always talking about mathing opponents with sparky cards, which i've never seen with my current deck. Yesterday i've decided to change my deck as same as him and guess what heppened? i've been matching with sparky decks since i've changed, not to mention other cards that i've never seen before. Considence? -- 08:56, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
  • To be honest you just did the algorithm strategy where you create a deck against the deck that beats yours. After that, looks like you need to rest for the game to reset! If you want to know more about the algorithm strategy, you can check it out here: https://www.clashroyalepedia.com/Algorithm_Advantage_Strategy -- 14:14, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
  • This matchmaking is rigged. I can use one deck and be winning. Then all of a sudden i am matched with every deck that can beat it. So I change to another deck, start winning, and all of a sudden the same thing happens. This game does not want you to create your own winning deck and win. This is rigged!! -- 16:13, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
  • holy shit i was 4 trophies away from legendary arena, then the games fucking pairs me up w shitty players who hav lvl 5 epics lvl 11 commons lvl 8 rares and lvl 10 kings tower are you fucking kidding me why are these fuckers at my trophy range -- 17:07, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Me in person I stopped with clash royale bc of matchmaking and bc the game is dead almost no tournaments anymore bc they are overpriced but lets get to what I think the problem is. Matchmaking, why? Bc it's not all about how many trofies you have it's about the deck of your opponent. If supercell wants me to drop trofies they just give me an opponent with the deck which can perfectly beat mine yesterday when I stopped I came across three opponents with all three sparkey decks. What a coincidence. -- 08:23, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Hey congratulations on reaching Arena 4 at level 5! That was a tough grind! However based on what you've said, there are a lot of high level players trolling around low level arenas. As you can see here: https://www.clashroyalepedia.com/Trolling_in_Lower_Clash_Royale_Arena. Being a level 5 at arena 4 is really tough, most of the players in that arena are level 6 and 7. You just have to play it smart and strategize. You can also do the https://www.clashroyalepedia.com/Algorithm_Advantage_Strategy it works! -- 03:05, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
  • I'm in arena 4 @ lvl 5 and I find it lucky if I'm paired with lvl 6s mostly I'm paired with 7@8s some lvl 9s? Just not sure .... Maybe there isn't any lvl 5s in arena 4? Or lvl 6s maybe I'm just way ahead of other players? Anyway it is frustrating but it's fun to win a lvl 8 guy:) the other day I had a lvl 9s King tower down to 200 when we had a draw so I have to say that was fun... That being said I still want to reach arena 5 just not sure if it's possible... I personally feel the cards are involved in -- 12:26, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

  • I advise you guys to check out the Algorithm Strategy. http://www.clashroyalepedia.com/Algorithm_Advantage_Strategy where you take advantage of the Supercell algorithm to make sure you get the wins and not be on a long losing streak. Also, what levels are you? -- 06:31, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
  • How is it unfair to get paired against someone with the same trophy count? If you were always paired against people with equal level, there would be no incentive to upgrade your cards. If you are constantly pairing against people higher level than you, you're probably over-performing. Progression in the game is part skill and part level. That being said, the game is incredibly grindy and it takes time to reach new arenas. -- 01:21, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Free to play is more than likely hobbled. I have gone as far as 1600, but never above. Still have zero legendary cards, nor a lava hound. I have played the same deck, getting a long winning streak, followed by days of losing, and drawing, with the occasional win. It is for sure fixed for pay to play players. -- 18:50, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
