Clash Title

Clash

Clash is a competitive team-based tournament system that rewards players for organized play.[1]

The alpha tests premiered in late 2017 for Vietnam. An official beta launched on December 15th, 2017 onto EU servers, with team creation enabled prior on December 12th.[2] The original release date was set for May 2018, but due to frequent crashes and development issues, it was delayed indefinitely. On August 19-25, 2019, NA conducted another test[3], and the second official beta was conducted across two weekends of December 7–8 and December 14–15, 2019. The second official release date was February 22-23, 2020.[4][5] EU servers had their release dates pushed back for February 29th and March 1st due to another slew of server crashes.[6]

Entry Requirements

Clash Crest icon
  • Summoner level 30 or more.
  • Completed provisional matches in at least one ranked queue.
  • SMS account verification (lasts 6 months).

Entry into a bracket requires Clash Ticket Clash Tickets that can be bought with BE icon 990 or RP icon 195. A player can instead submit a Clash Premium Ticket Premium Ticket bought for RP icon 975 to be eligible for more prizes upon victory in the tournament. A player can also submit a ticket on behalf of a teammate without one.[7]

Team organization

Clash Team Creation beta

Teams are organized by a captain who decides the name, tag, and logo. The team's tier adjusts based on the rank composition of its members.

Substitutes

In case of emergency, a player can be substituted for a single day, but only after the lock-in phase begins. The substitute must be in the same skill tier, and may only submit one ticket. The substitute receives rewards normally, while the subbed-out player receives losing rewards.

If the team wins the bracket, the subbed-out player is reinserted into the team for following brackets.

The subbed-out player can reclaim their position on the roster before the scouting phase begins.


Phases

Clash Scouting beta

You can check out your opponents' win rates and KDAs with their most-played champions in ranked, their best champs in terms of mastery, and their previous Clash data.

1. Lock-in phase

The entire team must lock-in within 30 minutes of match start; otherwise they will not participate, and their tickets will be returned. The game will start searching for a bracket immediately after all team members have locked in.

2. Scouting Phase

Teams are presented with information about the rival team to make decisions on pick/ban strategy. This phase lasts 7 minutes.

3. Champion Select

Champion select follows the tournament draft, where all champions are unlocked. There is a 22 second Pick Intent phase as the first phase.

A player that has not locked in a champion will be given a random champion, if not their hovered champion.

Matches

Matches are done in a 8 team bracket, i.e for 3 matches.


House Rules

Pauses & Remakes

/pause and /remake are disabled in the Clash so matches cannot be overrun or be remade to prevent extended days of play. There's a potential for griefing or trolling through abuse of these features.

Sudden Death / Overcharged

At 55 minutes, turrets lose their armor and magic resistance.

At 60 minutes, structures lose an escalating percentage of their maximum health every 30 seconds (turrets in order, then inhibitors, then nexus turrets, then the nexus).

At 70 minutes, one team will have won the game, decided by random if neither team damaged a structure. These measures are to keep match times at fixed lengths so operations are scheduled smoothly.


Prizes

The winning bracket will reward the tournament trophy of the sized bracket.

Victory Points

Players gain 200 Victory Points (VP) per win. They gain additional 0 / 50 / 100 / 150 (based on Clash Tier) VP on their first win. Using a Clash Premium Ticket Premium Ticket also gives extra VP. VP total up over two clash weekends. VP can be used to unlock team icons, and banners that will display in both the player's profile and their chosen lane on Summoner's Rift icon Summoner's Rift.
