What Is Clash Royale League Challenge?

The Clash Royale League Challenge is an opportunity for any players who think they have what it takes to go pro to show off their skills. The in-game event, which kicked of March 14, follows similar rules to all events with players being disqualified once they have lost 3 battles. Players who make it to 20 wins without losing gain the opportunity to compete in further events which could lead to a contract with a pro league team. According to Supercell's informational post, completing the 20 win challenge doesn't guarantee players a spot on a pro team. Rather, it's an opportunity to become visible to pro teams.

"Teams are independent businesses that will make their own decisions on who to sign. On top of skill, they also consider other factors such as maturity, leadership skills and chemistry with other team members. Furthermore, teams and players would need to come to agreement about salary and other requirements. A good player may not get signed if they demand too much money, aren't available on competition dates, or are unable to secure proper travel visas (so they can travel to competitions)."

Supercell intends to offer further online tournaments in the near future which will "further help players and teams find each other," after the Clash Royale League Challenge ends. Though these future events aren't required for gaining a spot on a team, serious players are encouraged to participate as they yield the following benefits:

  • Gain experience performing under pressure in a tournament environment
  • Become even better players by competing against the best of the best
  • Showcase their skill to CRL teams that will be watching and scouting

All players that reach 20 wins should watch News Royale, reddit and his or her in-game inbox for further details about these online tournaments.
