Link to Supercell Clash Royale app not working

I have an Android 11 (Build RP1A.201005.004) Pixel 3 XL and Brave 1.15.73, Chromium 860.4240.75 installed.


The problem relates to Supercell’s Clash Royale game. Clash Royale websites offer suggestions of 8-card decks for players to copy from a URL into the game itself for players to use. This used to work before I upgraded operating system and/or Brave; I don’t know which.

Currently these links work in the regular Android Chrome Browser but not Brave.
They look like https://link.clashroyale.com/deck/en?deck=[series of codes separated by semicolons] or clashroyale://copyDeck?deck=[series of codes with ;]. These links for copying decks are found from RoyaleAPI.com, StatsRoyale.com, and DeckShop.pro.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click copy deck link in Browser
  2. Does not switch in to Clash Royale with your selected deck, as it used to do in Brave but only does so in Chrome.
  3. Land on clashroyale.com copy the deck page, still in Brave, with your desired deck featured, asking “Do you have Clash Royale installed on this device,” which I do.
  4. Click on “Yes” button in Brave, but nothing happens.

Expected result:

With one click, switch from Brave to Clash Royale app with your selected deck copied and ready to paste into the game.
