I think that it will not be a discovery for anyone that together these two units make a very powerful attacking combination on the first two arenas of Clash Royale. Both of them has a big stock of health, not bad damage power and almost the same speed of movement.The Valkyrie is great in tough melee, and she is capable to eliminate a bunch of enemy troops with low hitpoints (Skeleton Army, Goblins etc.) only with one spin. Mini P.E.K.K.K.A isn’t good with big amount of enemy but his great damage power allows him to destroy a Prince, Wizard or Witch with only few strikes!
The minus of such combination is its vulnerability against flying characters (Baby Dragon, Minions etc.). But now not about it.
Both Valkyrie and Mini P.E.K.K.A cards that are available in Clash Royale on the very first stages of the game (Training Camp and Arena 1). Therefore, when the choice of cards isn’t very big (firsts arenas) these two characters are very often found in one deck. But what to do, when more and more cards unlock and become available? Which one of these two cards to keep in the battle deck and continue to improve? Will it be right decision to leave both of them? Let’s try to answer these questions …
First of all we need to analyze which cards are most found in Clash Royale players’ decks on Arena 3 and Arena 4. To do such analyze we can with the help of THIS RESOURCE.
Having chosen Arena 3 and Arena 4 for analysis, we see the following picture:
As you can see from the statistics for the last week (data can changes because the data is taken for the last week), on the third and fourth arenas players practically don’t use troops with low hitpoints except of Skeleton Army (can be easily eliminated with Fireball or Baby Dragon). The main emphasis in attack the most of players make on Giant and Hog Rider (fourth arena), building their attacks around these two cards. Proceeding from this, we will have much more benefits from Mini P.E.E.K.K.A!
Have a doubts? Let’s make a little calculation. So, the Hog Rider of the 1 level has 800 of hitpoints and 100 damage per sec. Thus, Valkyrie will eliminate him in a 10 second (damage power of the 1 level Valkyrie is 80 per sec.). For this time Hog Rider will take 1,000 of hitpoints from a tower. At the same time, Mini P.E.K.K.A can destroy rider for only 4.44 sec. For this time rider is able to make only 4 strikes (or minus 400 of hitpoints from a tower).
As for the attack, here is a clear advantage on the side of little P.E.K.K.A. He’s faster and has bigger damage power. Thus, I think that it is more expedient to leave a little P.E.K.K.A in the battle deck (at least on the third and fourth arenas)!
But this is only my opinion based on dry mathematical calculations! What to do for you – decide for yourself!
