In the game, you build the deck of 8 cartoon character cards for the battles. However, In the battle, you have only four choices as only four cards are displayed. New cards appear as you use the currently displayed cards. To use a card, you need mana points. Mana Points regenerate over time, as you play.

Direct Win – To win the battle, you have to destroy the enemy’s castle in given time. The player who destroys the opponent’s castle first wins the match and earn trophies, stars, card packs, and coins.

Tile Count Win – If both the player failed to destroy the castle and both the players have the same number of guardians, then the number of tiles will determine the victory. The player with the most tiles wins the match in this condition. In case you don’t know, when your character walks on the tile, that becomes yours. You can also check it by counting blue and red tiles. Blue tiles are yours. Red tiles denote enemy’s claim.

Cartoon Network Arena Tips & Tricks:

1.) Mix The Deck By Including All The Units

You can add up to eight cards in one deck. So we would recommend you to include all type of cards; magic cards, to destroy the group of enemies. Air type units to attack ground & air units. Building type units to defend & attack continuously. Defenders(High Hit Points Stats) and attackers(High damage stats).

But only building the best deck would not help you. You have to use mana points wisely and deploy the units wisely.

2.) Use The Defend And Ranged-Attack Strategy

In almost all RTS games, this strategy works. First, you deploy the defender unit on the tile(defender? A unit with high HP stats). Behind it, deploy the ranged attacker. The defender unit will absorb the damage by leading from the front and protect the ranged attacker. And the attacker will deal damage from a range.

You can also try out the air combination. Place building in the middle. Use the magic card at the right time – to destroy the enemy building.

3.) Open The Free Packs Daily

You can claim three types of card packs for free daily. These packs include; free pack, free huge pack, and star pack. You can claim a free pack every 3 hours, huge pack every 12 hours, and the star pack every 14 hours. Additionally, you can obtain more by getting the victories.

4.) Check Out The Store And Grab The Deals

As you know, duplicate cards are required in upgrading. Make sure to don’t miss the daily card deal. Go to the store menu -> on the left side, tap the cards tab -> there you can check out the daily deals. In this section, you can spend gold coins and grab the cards.

5.) Join The Kingdom

As you progress through the game, you will be able to join or create a Kingdom(Group for players). With this function, you can challenge other players(friendly) and learn new tactics. Additionally, there are more benefits too.

6.) Don’t Waste Candies

You can use candies to open the card pack instantly. But don’t do it. Save candies and open the premium card packs from the store to obtain rare, ultimate and legend character cards.

And don’t forget to upgrade the cards as it not only boost the strength of the unit but also provides you EXP. As you gain more and level up, guardians will deal more damage in the battle.
