Beginners will be able to enjoy the game without all the stress of learning all the technical mumbo-jumbo. It’s when those players begin having any interest to push forward and take the game more seriously that the in-game mechanics start becoming more. In this beginner’s guide, we’ll be talking about the technical parts of the game that are important for players to learn about so they’ll have a deeper understanding of how to play more efficiently.

About the Cards

Cards in Rush Royale act as units that players can buy randomly in the game. Players can collect new cards by opening chests containing a random amount of cards or by gaining them as rewards from missions or events. The game updates the card list occasionally so players will be able to build decks that are unique every season. This prevents players from getting bored about the current metagame by allowing them to discover new combinations for each set that works best in PvP.

The cards in the game contain a unique set of stats and abilities. Players can gain excess amounts of a single card which they can use to upgrade the card to the next level. Once a card is upgraded, the stats and abilities are also increased, making the card stronger. Cards are also classified according to their rarity, which dictates how difficult they are to acquire. Higher rarity cards have stronger base stats and start out at a higher level because they’re harder to level up.

Unit Roles

Expanding a bit on the functionality of each card, let’s take a look at the roles that each unit has. The existence of roles prevents players from just slapping all of the cards that have the strongest damage into a deck and expecting it to work. In a match, there are different stages and enemies that require players to react with a certain unit. This is why each of the cards play a certain role in the game that will help the board, as a whole, defeat the different waves and bosses thrown at you.

Rush Royale unit roles are as follows: damage, support, debuff, special, and summon. Each of these roles have subcategories on what type of damage or ability they provide to help the team or disrupt the enemy units or, in case of PvP matches, the enemy player. Reading about your cards will help you discover the perfect formula for your team. Remember that having a lot of damage is good but it’s not the only thing that will help you win the game at the very end.

Heroes and Morale Abilities

Another important thing to keep in mind in matches are the Hero Abilities. For beginners, everybody gets Training Hero as the starting hero, which unlocks the ability to block minions for a short period of time. There are other heroes that players can unlock when they level up or reach a higher rank in the game. Players can also unlock heroes through Hero Fragments which are collected by opening chests containing random shards of varying rarities and amounts.

Players can activate a hero ability after collecting the necessary amount of Morale. Morale is a resource that’s produced by your units. Each unit produces a certain amount of morale depending on their unit type and level. Once a player has accumulated enough morale, they can consume all of the morale they have stored to activate the hero skill. You can use as many hero skills as you want in a match as long as you have enough morale to keep activating these abilities before the game ends.

PvP vs. Coop

PvP is considered the main game format in Rush Royale. In PvP, two players will face off against each other to defeat waves of monsters. Every time a player defeats a monster, it gets summoned to the enemy’s side of the map in addition to the enemies being spawned passively. That will make it harder for them to keep up with the monsters being generated. Monsters spawn endlessly with bosses phases cutting in-between matches. The player whose gate gets penetrated first loses.

Co-op is a fun game mode for players who want a less stressful experience. In co-op, two players will be working together to defeat waves of enemies. Phases are separated in waves which increase in difficulty over time. The game ends after a wave has successfully penetrated your castle. In this game mode, players’ units will work together to kill units on their side and in the middle lane where both waves converge and start becoming more difficult to kill.

Missions and Rewards

There are different ways to get valued items in the game such as chests, gold coins, hero and unit shards, as well as other things. The best way to get them is to earn them through missions or as rewards to some in-game events. Players should always aim on clearing the game’s daily missions so that they won’t miss out on the rewards. Rush Royale will occasionally release events that don’t only allow the players to get a fresh experience of the game but also receive some very nice rewards.

The most reliable way to gain rewards is through the battle pass. The battle pass is a freemium feature in the game that gives the player the choice to buy it or use it for free. Paid battle passes will gain better rewards, whereas the free version will still give the player some useful rewards such as free chests. Ranking up the ladder will also help the player in their account by rewarding them with stuff whenever they hit a certain milestone.
