Should be tied to your Google play or iTunes account and backed up.

Pretty sure it's tied to your ioS gamecenter account. I wasn't able to create an alt account because, no matter the device, my normal account would automatically load because of the gamecenter ID.

If you clear the cache, then have two logins on your phone, you can change accounts within the game. Took me a while to figure out, but it works on Android and iOS.

Update sneak peeks are happening.

Sneak Peek #1 - Quests
  • Take on daily and weekly quests to earn epic rewards
  • Rewards include Super Magical and Legendary Chests

Video overview of quests

A few notes from the video:
-Achievements will be removed in the next update (after the October update launches)
-Free Chests are going away and will be replaced by a daily reward
-Based on the video, it would take 20 days to unlock a Legendary Chest with quest points or 30 days to unlock a Super Magical Chest with quest points when you get them. (yikes)

Holy shit those greedy mother fuckers. It takes an entire week to get what you would acquire from one day of free chests according to that video.

One thing is for sure, getting gold is going to take longer now. I just spent a bunch of gold that i probably shouldn't have, too. Bleh.

Well I haven't played a 1v1 ladder match since they added 2v2 permanently and these quests aren't going to make me start again. If they are replacing normal chests with these completely then I guess I'm done playing this game period as there wouldn't be a reason to even play 2v2 anymore. I guess I'll try the football mode out.

You still win chests from 1v1 and 2v2. It's the Free Chests you automatically get every 4 hours that are going away.

The thing about the Quests is that they force you to use your underleveled cards in 1v1 and risk your trophies. That's dumb.

It's basically a lot of work for very little payoff. There's a chance you could roll a MC, SMC ot Legendary chest but it would take weeks to unlock it with only one new quest a day and you would have to play a lot of ladder with cards you don't want to use.

oh wait THOSE free chests, I'm good. they were ok, but I never logged in at the right 'times' to make the most of it. So having a quest every 24 hours, is fine with me. Let them stack for a couple days, then knock em out in one day, rinse and repeat.

In terms of bulk rewards per day, it's definitely worse than what it currently is. In terms of not giving a fuck for a few days, it's just perfect for someone like me who doesn't log in every 8 hours.

Even if you only logged in once a day you got two free chests a day which is a lot more than what you will get through Quests.

And again, a lot of the quests involve playing ladder with cards you wouldn't want to use. I assume this is some weird way to force a shake-up in the meta.

Ah ok, that's not so bad then. It will suck losing those free cards over the course of the day but at least I won't have to log in so often to clear them out.

More sneak peeks are out.

Yesterday was #2 about New Game Modes
  • Touchdown mode
  • Earn gold and gems by taking down towers during Gold Rush and Gem Rush events
  • Chat and have a rematch with your 2v2 teammate
  • Mirror battles give you and your opponent the same deck

Video about this sneak peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDYwEkYCmzI

Also now for 2v2 challenge modes you can choose a friend, no more randoms for 2v2 challenge mode. There are also casual challenges where you have to get X number of wins, but losses don't matter. You just play until you get the required wins, no matter how many games.

Sneak Peek #3 just was released, and it's about bonus stuff
  • Share and copy decks from outside the game
  • We've revamped the shop, check it out for daily deals
  • Collect a free Epic Card from the Shop every Sunday
  • Gems are no longer refunded for Custom Tournaments if no players join or battle
  • News Royale, now in glorious full screen

Video overview for Sneak Peak #3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6wwkXZMBK0

Other notes from the video:
-Cards will have set prices and will not increase by buying more. Commons will cost 10 gold, rares will cost 100 gold, epics will cost 1000 gold. Legendary is still 40,000 but you will only be able to buy 1 now. It seems like there will be a random amount of each card every day you can buy (in the video he could buy 1 Witch, but then 2 Golems). Also some days stacks of cards will be available for gems. It looks like there are a lot of combos of how the shop will work in terms of cards, gems, gold, etc.
-Free stuff can also appears in the shop from gems/gold/chests.

Looks like the Sneak Peek may be about balance changes.

Balance changes announced

Note: This balance update is not live yet! It's coming on 10/9.

The way we approach card balance in Clash Royale is a combination of playtesting, listening to the community and looking at the stats. You can expect regular balance updates to keep gameplay fine tuned and as fun as possible.

In this balance update we're taking a look at Sparky(!!!), Tesla, Electro Wizard and more!

Sparky: Hit speed to 4sec (from 5sec), damage -15%
-Sparky will no longer one-shot another Sparky.

Tesla: Damage +30%, hit speed to 1sec (from 0.8sec)
-Tesla will one-shot Minions and Goblins.

Electro Wizard: Damage -4%, first attack comes 0.2sec slower
-No major interaction changes.

Graveyard: Duration to 10sec (from 9sec), radius to 4 (from 5), first Skeleton spawns 0.5sec slower, Skeletons spawn less randomly
-No major interaction changes.

Cannon Cart: Hitpoints +5%, shield hitpoints +5%
-Cannon Cart's shield will survive a Mega Knight jump and hit.

Lightning: Damage -3%, radius to 3 (from 3.5)
-No major interaction changes.

Spear Goblins: Hit speed to 1.1sec (from 1.3sec)
-No major interaction changes.

Valkyrie: Damage +5%
-Valkyrie will one-shot Princesses and Dart Goblins, and take down Barbarians in three attacks.

FIXES:
-Bandit, Mega Knight - FIXED: Bandit and Mega Knight dashing/jumping a shorter distance than they should.
-Cannon Cart - FIXED: Troops occasionally stopped targeting the Cannon Cart and very occasionally get stuck behind a broken Cannon Cart.
-Inferno Dragon, Inferno Tower - FIXED: Damage not resetting after breaking through a shield (e.g. Guards, Dark Prince, Cannon Cart).
-Troop Pathfinding - FIXED: Troops steering towards an unexpected lane. Behaviour should be more as expected now.

Some thoughts:
-Tesla is a pretty big buff. I suspect it will be finding its way into decks pretty quick post-patch.
-Electro Wizard takes another hit. It probably moves it into more of a well balanced state now, but likely to see usage drop.
-Graveyard will be strong post update.
-Cannon Cart usage won't change. It's not a bad card, the problem is it's 5 elixir and there are just better options at that cost.
-Lightning is taking a pretty big hit. .5 radius decrease doesn't seem like much, but it is going to make it much harder to take out targets unless they are grouped together.
-Sparky - lol
-A secret winner of this update will be Inferno Tower. Lightning and Electro Wizard nerf is basically a buff to IT.

If I'm not mistaken, that Spear Goblin buff means each one can land two Spears on towers before dying. It would be a pretty massive buff to Goblin Hut.

Iíve only played one game a week for the past month (to make sure I get the clan chest), but have also been doing my daily requests and free chests (in case I ever want to play again).

This update will probably be the one that completely kills the game for me. Canít believe they arenít nerfing golem at all.

Yup free chests are gone and the shop is crap now. I would always buy commons and rares each day since the cost was cheaper than what youíd get back for donating them. Not the case anymore.

Pretty sure Iím done with this game now. Was great while it lasted.

So these are things I noticed that are different from preview video vs the build we have now:

Hog, Ram etc are in TD mode despite it being said otherwise and they are stupid OP as expected.

The Daily Login reward at the bottom of the Quests screen is totally MIA

The shop seems to only give a "daily" random reward sometimes? I was under the impression that every day we would get something like a bit of gold, a few gems, or even a Silver chest like I got yesterday. Today my shop updated and no freebie.

Anything else?
...

Not a fan of having to buy whole stacks. I mean, i guess it's good that cost doesn't continue to double but if you only want a few then too bad.

Gold is harder to get now, especially if you don't want to play ladder. I wager if you were pretty diligent about your free chests you got at least 200 gold from that. Buying a Rare for 20 and donating it for 50 was also a fun trick.

On a positive note, i like being able to send a message after 2v2 but would it not be more useful to send strategic emotes only your partner can see while playing a match?

Nope. Just cleared a quest and have to wait for the next one.

Other quests are 2v2 touchdown wins, use spell X times and use Legendary X times.

Edit: It's here now. The rewards are jokes compared to free chests.

Exactly. I was excited when I heard they were adding quests and thought it might bring me back to the game. Didnít realize they were adding quests by removing free chests.

Every time they add something beneficial it comes at the cost of something else. When they first added gold to wins they lowered the gold on all chests so youíd be getting even less gold than before. Guess thatís why they are a billion dollar company.

Touchdown mode is trash *because* it's draft and 2v2.

As of right now it's largely "who has hog rider" and you better hope you at least have some buildings come up on the draw.

It's not like regular mode where an unchallenged hog means a lot of tower damage but not an immediate crown loss.

I also just had a rather unfortunate draft where it was all choices between cards costing 6 or more elixer.

EDIT: unrelated, i just experienced a weird bug.

I edit my deck and swap sparky for arrows.

Then i hit "battle" and it matched me up for 2v2. I know i hit the right button, it didn't give me the option to quick match or play with a friend.

Weirder still, the sparky was in my deck again. When i finished the match i went back to the deck editor and it was gone, replaced with the arrows.
