2016-05-19-05-16-56-maxresdefault__1_.jpg A Redditor opened a discussion on why the Hog Rider is the most popular card there is.

Overview:

The Prince had his fair share of popularity before they nerfed him and added a lot of distractions and speed bumps along his way, so this rare 4 elixir card, the Hog Rider took his throne and dominated higher Clash Royale arenas right now.

How to Counter the Hog Rider?

Because of the popularity of the Hog Rider, a lot of players are injecting Hog Rider counters in their deck. Some are annoyed about it and some are just neutral because they already figured out how to counter the popular card without spending much elixirs.

More Cards:

Since there are no new cards that acts like the Hog Rider, a lot of Redditors are requesting a new card with the same skills like him. It became apparent that Hog Riders became too boring since a lot of players are using the same strategy again and again.

Overall:

It is true that we are seeing a lot of Hog Rider decks in the game, you can check the TV Royale on that one, but do you think it's time Clash Royale added a new card like him? Looks like the new Miner card doesn't match his abilities in taking down a tower so a lot of Redditors and players are asking for a new one.

What do you think? Let your mind speak and be heard!
