The main progress of a player’s card and king tower experience level in Clash Royale is dependent on the amount of resources a player has. With this in mind, chests are the primary source of in-game items including such gold and cards. These chests can be obtained through battle, and the rarity of a chest obtained by a player is not determined by RNG. The Clash Royale chest cycle system has already determined which chests a player will receive from battle.
How the Chests drop in Clash Royale?
As previously stated, chest drops are not based on RNG or luck, but rather on a chest cycle or specific order of chests that a player receives in the game. This is the order in which a player receives a chest after winning a battle.

• The chest cycle keeps going as long as a chest slot is available and ends when all slots are filled.
• The cycle will pause if no chest slots are available, and players will not miss any chests, implying that players cannot skip any chests in the chest cycle.
• The cycle will repeat after reaching the end.
The below given chests available from battles:
- Silver chest
- Golden chest
- Magical chest
- Giant chest
- Epic chest

How to obtain Clash Royale’s Special Chests?
Special crates, such as Mega Lightning, Epic, Legendary, and Royal Wild, can be obtained through battle but have a different cycle. Within a week of obtaining the 300th trophy, the special cycle will immediately start counting the number of chests obtained by the player through all the regular chest cycle, which means that the chest cycle is approximately 500 chests long.

To put it another way, the player receives one special chest after a random cycle of 500 chests; however, after receiving the special chest (for example, a mega lightning chest), the player must repeat the cycle in order to receive the same special chest. For example, if a player receives a mega lightning chest as his 100th chest, he must open the remaining 400 chests in the cycle to gain the mega lightning chest once more.
To keep the cycle going without wasting time, always unlock the chests one after the other. Chest keys can speed up the process by instantly opening the chest of any rarity. Finally, you can track your chest cycle progression on websites like statsroyale.
