Double Lane Pressure is a strategy in Clash Royale by which you pressure your competition by using both lanes. Generally, most players only focus on attacking one of their challenger’s towers at a time. In this video, I’m going to show you guys a group of instances of how you can use both lanes and when is the best time to assault both lanes and win.
The first instance I want to give is when your opponent deploys a pricey troop like the P.E.K.K.A, Giant, Golem, or Sparky. Each of these cards are not difficult to counter, or need support and are pricey in Elixir cost. As an example, the P.E.K.K.A is an extremely easy card to cope with when she is alone. But when she’s coupled with another troop such as a Wizard, she becomes a much bigger risk. Otherwise, she is easily countered by you with almost no Elixir.
So when your opponent deploys a pricey troop like the P.E.K.K.A, then the first thing in your brain should be to Double Lane Pressure. When your opponent deploys the P.E.K.K.A, he spent 7 Elixir, leaving him with only 3 to defend. So what you should do would be to assault and pressure your opponent on the other lane. For example, if he deployed the P.E.K.K.An on the right lane, then you certainly should assault and pressure the left lane. What this will do is, it’s going to drive your opponent to respond and defend the left lane. This can be when your opponent is most vulnerable because he’s only going to have your push to stop. So provided that you pressure your opponent on the left lane and keep forcing him on the left with your Elixir advantage, your competitor will have a very hard time supporting his P.E.K.K.A, or Giant, or Golem, or Sparky. And after it is made by that troop to your own side, you can easily counter it because it’s going to be unsupported as your competition spent all of his Elixir.
Another similar example is when your opponent deploys an expensive support troop like Witch or the Wizard. You can immediately attack force pressure and the opposite lane on your competition. This will then result Witch a tank this type of Giant or in your competitor neglecting to support their Wizard, allowing you to easily counter that threat.
Whilst you can see, the Double Lane Pressure technique can be used any time your opponent deploys a troop that wants support pose a lot of risk or to succeed. A card like the Hog Rider doesn’t need support to hurt you and is fast. So Double Lane Pressure ca be n’ted by you . For that, you must focus on Counterpushing, not Lane Forcing.
One other example I want to share about Double Lane Pressure is when you should start assaulting both lanes. When is it the best time to assault both lanes?
This one is a little more advanced because it requires you to first scout your challenger’s deck and in addition your challenger’s moves.
As an example, say you’re using Prince and the Hog Rider in your deck. Both Prince and the Hog Rider will do a lot of damage if they make it for your challenger’s tower, but that’s the chief challenge, getting them to your challenger’s Arena Tower. Thus say your opponent has Barbarians and Minion Horde to easily counter both your Hog Rider and Prince. So what you must do now is form Double and a strategy Lane Pressure your competition to get to their Arena Tower. Because if you do Lane Pressure, sending your Hog Rider and Prince jointly in one lane allows your competition to easily counter both of them because both Prince share similar weaknesses and the Hog Rider with ease.
So what you should do is first send out Prince with a combo in one lane or your Hog Rider. This will of course push your opponent into defending that lane. Thus say you deployed your Hog Rider on the lane that is left to essentially laugh at your opponent into using his Barbarians or Minion Horde. Your competition likely believes that he countered your Hog Rider shove really easily and made a move that is smart. But what you’ve done is created an opening on the right lane. Your opponent no longer has Barbarians, as those Barbarians were deployed, leaving your opponent with only a Minion Horde to defend your Prince push. So now you send in your Prince on the right lane and couple him with Fire Spirits to immediately wipe out the defending Minion Horde and deal incredible damage to your own challenger’s tower.
If you did not Double Lane Pressure this would not have been possible. If you’d sent on the same lane with Fire Spirits in your Hog Rider and Prince, in that case your competition would have easily countered that with his Barbarians and Minion Horde. Since you’ve demanded your competition on the right lane with your Prince, and remember, this disallowed of supporting his Barbarians your adversary, making it very easy to also counter the Barbarians that were unsupported.
So this really is how you Double Lane Pressure. It’s more of an innovative technique, something you will learn to master more of as you keep playing with Clash Royale.
