Clash Royale – Balance Update June 2017

Clash Royale

As you’ll see from the video we’ll be posting this week, Hopper and I have been loving playing Clash Royale recently. Today, the game’s creators – Supercell – are releasing an update to the game that changes some of the powers of the existing cards… This happens from time to time, Supercell say it’s based on feedback from the players, but today’s changes are pretty big and look like they’ll take down some of the most popular Clash Royale cards.

You can read the full release from Supercell here on their blogpost:

The ones that Hopper and I have and use a lot, which will be affected are:

The Tornado – duration will go from 3sec down to 2.5sec – this is a great card for holding back a mob of attackers to give you chance to get some defence in place, or for your towers to target them whilst they’re stuck in the vortex. It sounds like it will still be effective, but only against some of the weaker mobs groups like skeletons and goblins – to get some decent effects from it you’ll need to combine it with an attacker like a Wizard or Executioner – or maybe a Rocket!

The Log, which is a neat little defence item that rolls over your opponents  team and flattens them will have a shorter range: down to 11.1 from 11.6.

One of my favourites, the Goblin Gang will now have only 2 Spear Goblins instead of 3… I think this will make a real difference and wonder if they’ll end up dropping out of my regular deck…?

Some cards are being increased in the update, which include the Inferno Dragon getting a 7% hitpoints increase as well as a faster re-targeting, which isn’t too wrong – they often seemed to go down without much of a fight.


What do you think of the changes, are they too much or about right? The change comes in today, so bye-bye Mister Goblin, maybe three was a crowd…


10 million views in week!!

That’s what this Harry Potter origin film trailer has picked up since it came out last week – and we got pretty excited when we saw that they would be making a prequel film for the Harry Potter story, looking at Voldemort – or Tom Marvolo Riddle – as a young boy and how he became the Dark Lord.

You can check out official trailer here:

Apparently, the idea for the movie has come from fans, who made a fan-trailer in the first instance, which has now been agreed by Warner Bros to expand into a full feature film… Due in 2018, the main reason Gianmaria Pezzato and co-director Stefano Prestia have got the go ahead was because they are making the film for no profit and will release it for free on YouTube.

The idea came from a re-reading the sixth book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, where the pair found themselves with several questions. There are clues in the book that have inspired their ideas, but as with most book to screen adaptations not all could be explored in the main movies. The content of the trailer also suggests that it might draw on details from the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which is currently running on the London stage.

So, what do you think of a film will tell the story of the rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter ever existed? Hopper and I were pretty excited when we saw this and we loved Fantastic Beasts from the wizarding world of JK Rowling… We can’t wait for more!

Maker’s Spleef aka ‘Arrow Fail’ (Tried and Tested #9)

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry for the lack of videos, but laptop gave up and it’s taken a while to get up and running again… hopefully, we’ll be caught up soon and have some fun new videos to watch and games for you to try out.

On that note, take a look at the latest Minecraft Realms minigame we’ve been playing – Maker’s Spleef!

“What is a ‘spleef’?” You might ask… well, I had to anyway…

A spleef is a game where you beat your opponent by knocking out the blocks underneath them and send them to their doom! Or in this case, drop them on to turquoise wool – it is apparently, very strange and dangerous wool that kills you in Minecraft.

Melvis really doesn’t do so well when it comes to the arrow round – and the ‘insane’ mode is truly bonkers, we couldn’t work out what was happening except that we kept dying. So, check out the latest video and let us know whether you think you would make better ‘spleefers’ than we did! 🙂

Catching up…

So, we’ve recently sorted out the editing issues we had and so there are a backlog of videos to get up onto the channel from content we’ve made over the last six months or so and not been able to post. To try and have them make sense, we’ll post them roughly in order and back date them, so if you’re currently following us and wondering why things are popping up all over the timeline, this will explain it! 🙂

Really wish it was because I’d found a time machine though…

How do I make the dyes in Minecraft?

Quick post here for you to accompany our latest Minecraft Realms survival video, where we make the world a nicer and brighter place, by dying all the sheep in a rainbow of colours!

Most of the colours are made simply using your crafting table, with a few like ‘cactus green’ needing you to put the cactus cubes in the furnace first, to extract the colour.

Here’s another, extended crafting guide – with pictures – from the official Minecraft Wiki page if you need more help 😀


Rainbow Baaaaaa-rbers!! (We-Game Realms #7)

Red and yellow and pink and green…

Welcome back to our Realms survival world, where we are making the world a brighter, more colourful and fluffy place…

Yes, that’s right – today we’re getting creative with dyes and changing the bland, lackluster appearance of our normal sheep and making them all colourful and beautiful – then we’re stealing their wool to make rugs 😦

Don’t worry, they won’t be too cold for long, the lovely colours will grow back pretty quick!

It’s TNT Run!! (Tried and Tested #8)

Today’s video is the latest in our Tried and Tested series and we’re playing the Minecraft Minigame ‘TNT Run!’

As simple as it sounds really – there’s TNT and you’ve got to run to avoid being taken out by it! You and your opponents run across the same floor, which is rigged with TNT beneath the normal looking blocks – once stepped on, the block disappears and if you’re still standing there you disappear too!! Think about it as explosive quick sand and you’ll soon get the idea – stay in the game the longest and you win.

If you want to try this for yourself you can find several similar games on popular Minecraft servers or get it automatically in the Minecraft Realms mini-game section, which is where we played it from. Enjoy!
