Prince counter strategies :
What’s up guys this is Matt from Sqluck. Today i’ll be showing you how to counter the Prince. The Prince is potentially the strongest card you can encounter when first starting the game. If left alone a prince can wreck a tower fast. A lot of people don’t realize this but he’s technically a ranged troop. Versus a mele troop they’ll have to walk up to him. When he is charged up his first strike does double the damage.
Countering with Witch :
He’s a mini tank so arrows and fireball are ineffective. Witch can counter the Prince incredibly well when placed properly. Too late and too far in the front and she’ll die. You have to react fast. If you see a prince coming plant a witch behind the tower. It takes the witch eight seconds to summon the second wave of skeletons. This sets you up for a counter-attack. If you don’t have or use the Witch, you can always pull the prince with inexpensive units. Check out clash royale hack here.
Using Mele troops:
In lower arenas the prince is often paired up with the bomber. It can be devastating and seem impossible to counter. You can separate them with the pull since the bomber is slower and has a farther attack range than the prince. Or if you have fireball or minions you can take care of the bomber and prince separately. You can use small units to pull the Prince within range of your second tower. This is especially helpful if they have a giant Prince combo. If you missed the window to pull , you should plant an inexpensive decoy infront of the tower, that way the Prince won’t have enough distance to charge up and to double the damage to that Tower.
You can also pull with structures. Tombstone is one of the most effective structures to counter the Prince. You want to time it so at least two skeleton spawn. A group of skeletons also spawn after the tombstone is destroyed. If you don’t have time to place the tombstone in the middle plant it in front of your tower. If you have small units in your hand you can still use tanks, skeleton army or a hut. They aren’t cost-effective, so you may not gain an elixir advantage to counter-attack. However if you already had HUT in the lane it’s great support if you have minion horde at a decent level, they can help put a lot of damage. You don’t want to throw glass cannons in front to defend. The prince will make minced meat out of them.
