Supercell’s Clash Royale League Returns for Second Season
- The Clash Royale League announced first details for the qualifying process of season two.
- Last year’s debut season had a $1M USD prize pool and featured 44 teams across five international regions.
- The upcoming season will consolidate the Western regions, potentially leading to fewer teams in the league.
Just like last season, all Clash Royale players can compete within the mobile strategy game for a chance to be picked by a team and play in the professional league. The in-game Clash Royale League Challenge tasks players with accumulating at least 20 wins between March 21-26, and those who hit that mark will then move on to an online qualifiers stage.
Players who qualify for the next stage will also qualify for a chance to compete at the World Cyber Games Finals in Xi’an, China, from July 18-21.
The Esports Observer reached out to a Supercell representative for additional details on the next CRL season, but nothing further was provided. As of yet, the publisher has not announced the prize pool, regular season timeframe, or which organizations will compete this year.
Last year, 44 teams competed in the Clash Royale League, including major multi-title esports organizations such as Cloud9 , Team Liquid , 100 Thieves , and Team SoloMid . However, this season is likely to feature fewer overall teams, as the league will consolidate the previous North American, European, and Latin American regions into a single West region.
The West region will join China and Asia in the 2019 season. Supercell tweeted in February that it was still negotiating with the previous season’s CRL teams about returning, noting that it wanted to “work with organizations that want to truly support and contribute to the long-term success of the CRL.”
Supercell has also recently made esports moves for its earlier mobile game, Clash of Clans. The publisher has teamed with ESL to put on a $1M Clash of Clans World Championship in 2019, and earlier this week, ESL and AT&T announced plans for a Mobile Open competition that also includes the game.
