Here I’ll be explaining some of the most important tips you should know when trying to push or achieve a new Trophy best; when used with these techniques, will have amazing results for you!
Best Tips Pushing Trophies in Clash Royale

-Mini Push Tips
So, we’ve all had those moments when we just go completely ballistic at this game. I’m really hoping this guide can push you through these times – save this guide for times when you are going crazy and my tips will help you cool down from that situation that (trust me) I myself have been in many times.
First of all, I want to remind you to remember; it is just a game.
Although this guide will go into tons of detail about how you can achieve success very simply, remember that if it takes some time, or if things don’t often work out for you, this game should not affect you or your outside life personally, as this is very negative. Don’t let it get you to, and enjoy it! Hazard has reminded me this before, and coming from even a seriously competitive player, he makes a very good point!
Read on, and enjoy!
So, this is probably the least important part of pushing. And what I mean by this is that having a good deck will absolutely NOT guarantee easy Trophies (there are only 1-2 times I have seen this happen during my own experience in the game!).
You should always know that skill is the primary cause of success in this game… to a certain point. Even if your Card levels are slightly lower than average, it can be easy to push!
What you want to ensure is that your Deck does work, either using a good construction guide or by choosing one of many popular meta Decks. You can take a look at here for the best decks in the current meta.
So, you want a solid Deck, but don’t do what I occasionally do when tilting; going into the mindset where every Deck seems crap and you end up changing Deck after every loss will simply be your downfall! Go slow, and read on to find out how to relax more and set up a good push routine for optimal results.

So, this is one of the most important sections of the guide that I consider myself a professor in… – lol, no bragging intended. I’ve spent a long amount of time reading and exploring game mechanics, and particularly playing siege with low levels, so want to help you guys achieve the same kinda results with that ever archetype you are using!
Although I’m a long way off being a proper Top 200 competitive player, I 100% honestly believe this is based heavily on my levels. I’m running a Mortar Cycle Deck. Now, let’s talk about Deck mastery, my most important guide topic to pushing:
Deck mastery is a pretty basic technique to understand. There are several stages of learning a Deck, and with Mortar I’ve come close to completing mastery.
Look below – this is my main theory of the guide, consisting of a detailed plan you can actually follow to achieve Deck or archetype mastery!
Here’s my ‘scale’:
Phase 1 – Someone who has literally just begun using a Deck fits in right here.
They have no experience so are in that period where they’ve gotta play really slowly, conservatively and learn the Deck. You’re SURE to see some losses here and there, unless you are super lucky!
Phase 2 – Now guys, this stage is early on but still takes dedication to reach.
If a Deck is meta, do not assume it is bad when you lose a few battles; keep practicing and remember your mindset, as covered later on.
This stage is where you can really start to understand basic defense and attack mechanics of your Deck, and start categorizing it.
Phase 3 – The second stage of strategy understanding – here you will continue to develop knowledge of your Deck.
This can include some basic push setups, how to morph from control or defense into a counter-push, and when exactly you should play certain Cards.
By now you should also know a good starting hand, and what Cards you should begin a game with.
Phase 4 – You are nearing Deck mastery now, which is all the basic understanding of a Deck and its key features.
This is when players should have a plan of how to deal with certain archetypes – a good way to do this is to decide how many Crowns to aim for.
For example, sometimes I even aim for just a draw, to continue slowly gaining Trophies overall, should I be matched against a heavy or overlevelled beatdown Deck!
Phase 5 – We can soon give examples of players.
The fifth stage is when you feel very comfortable playing your Deck, and the win rate (unless you hit some really unfair matchups as I often do) should be around 65-70%, allowing consistent Trophy gains.
Now you should not feel too panicky when you have to deal with large pushes and can quickly strategize and make decisions during pressurized situations.
Phase 6 – Near the final part of Deck mastery, where you can use your Deck in various formats and might even have modified versions, like me, to use in Challenges and Tournaments!
This is where you could write a huge guide on the Deck and understand almost every mechanic. However, through this stage AND the next you will never stop learning tips and tricks, which sets top players apart.
A player who has never switched Deck from Arena 1 until Arena 11 can defeat much stronger players due to the time they have spent picking up tiny little strategic moves they are able to make. This will refine your play, and will ensure you can push well.
Phase 7 – Now here is where I really wanted to mention Pompeyo. A Top 200 Global player, he is an amazing example of Deck mastery.
He has been using and learning the ways of the X-bow for about as long as I can remember! Pompeyo can now build Decks featuring this Card, understands all the mechanics and can probably even plan out his playstyle with an X-bow Deck he has never even seen before, and win.
This is the best example, for me, in the game of mastery of a particular archetype or Card, and the same can be done for beatdown (YaoYao, looking at you!).
This stage has rarely been achieved by players because the previous phases are extremely hard to grind through to get here, yet once you are here full comfortability will exist when using that style of Deck!
So, to sum this all up, there are various stages of mastering a Deck but it will ultimately take your dedication to do!
This is another really underrated part of the game.
Your mindset is really gonna define how you as a person react to losses and bad situations.
More examples coming your way; Surgical Goblin and players like him, although surrounded by controversy, have one thing for definite in common I respect – they do not react badly if, for example, a LavaLoon user takes one of their Towers!
This is what we will delve into further, and as we know the opposite players who absolutely RAGE (me hehe) exist too, of course!
Developing the Mindset
So, understanding this kind of attitude is very important. Some tips from pros are to realize that no matter how seriously you do, or want to take it, it IS still a game. Always remember this when you get frustrated.
