How many friends can you make in Clash Royale?

You can only make 100 friends in Clash Royale through the Social tab. Once you reach this limit, you won’t be able to receive new friend requests. Hence, make sure to filter your friend list and remove any inactive players.

If you’ve reached the friend limit in Clash Royale and want to add more players, the only solution is to link other accounts and your friends on that platform will be imported to Clash Royale as well.

As of February 2023, Clash Royale allows players to connect these accounts based on their device and region:

  • Supercell ID (can add up to 300 friends)
  • WeChat/QQ (available in a limited number of regions)
  • Game Center (exclusive to iOS devices)
