The main way to actually win in Clash of Clans is to build units, attack other players, move up in the leaderboards, and collect more gold, elixirs, and gems to build more units. Then moving up in higher levels to destroy stronger players to gain even more gold and elixirs. However, this may be a long process since we need to gather resources to actually build a strong base to attack other players, so we, as players, have no choice but to farm for gold and elixirs.
There are multiple ways to farm for resources. One way, the long and easy way, is to use the shield to protect the base from stronger players. The shield will last for some time, twelve, sixteen hours, or more depending on the shield. Since time is one way of gathering resources, just leave the game alone for as long as the shield is up, and there will be a huge payoff. During this time, leveling up the buildings in the base to produce stronger units can help later on in the game. Once the shield is down, attacking weaker players can get some gold pretty quick.
On another note, attacking other players is a good way to farm for more gold in clash royale serveur privé. It's quicker, definitely faster than waiting for a certain time emptying out that gold mine, or gaining elixirs. Taking on other players of course requires the right strategy, which anyone can find online. Personally, I like to send a barrage of archers and goblins to keep things in a safe distance, and gain bonus gold in the process. Taking on weaker players are a safer bet, since it'll require less resources to take them down, but the payout will be low. Stronger players are a much bigger risk since more resources will be used to take them down, and they will have a more fortified base. However, the payoff will be huge. Then there are just taking out players who haven't been playing the game for a long time. Attacking inactive players is also a safe bet, which can be seen with sleeping builders or a grey clan shield.
Then there are trophies and achievements. Each trophy and achievement gives a certain amount of gems and gold, the easier ones giving the least, while the harder ones giving the most. A majority of them can be time consuming, such as winning ten multiplayer battles, or earn a total of 100,000 gold. It's about a long of a process as the shield strategy mentioned earlier, but it requires more interaction so it passes by the time.
There are other ways to farm in clash royale, but after talking with a few friends, and trying it on my own, these seem to be the best strategy to gain as many resources as anyone can. There is also the easy route by spending money to collect gems, which then can be converted into gold and elixirs. But where's the fun in that.
