Clash Royale, the newest app game by developer for Clash of Clans, has become an obsession for millions of players internationally. Although, the game has taken much condemnation; for its focus on micro transactions that reward players- who eagerly plunk down cash to play the freemium game.
Unsurprisingly, then- that one of the most lucrative players has spent so much money on the game.
In a Reddit AMA, Clash Royale player Chief Pat mentioned that he's spent $18,000 on Clash of Clans; which he's been playing for years, and $12,000 on Clash Royale- coming to a total of $30,000 on developer Supercell's games; despite Clash Royale having just come out in the first quarter of 2016.
"I've never regretted it, because YouTube is my job," Chief Pat noted. "It's a business expense, and I gotta show off all the coolest shit for my subscribers, ya digg?"
Running a successful YouTube channel with nearly 2 million subscribers, Chief Pat, pointed out that nearly all of the channel's content is dedicated to Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. In one video you can see Chief Pat take first place on the game's leader boards.
Chief Pat emphasized the need for a conscious strategy to stay on top- while spending a lot of money; which is helpful and perhaps even necessary. During the AMA, Chief Pat made several suggestions on bettering your game play; he also anticipates Supercell altering the succession routines in-game.
Clash Royale is a top ten grossing app on both iOS and Android platforms. According to reports, the apps earn $1.5 million a day. On Reddit you can read Chief Pat's complete AMA. Or simply watch his videos on YouTube.
