Supercell’s mobile strategy game Clash Royale is planning to implement big changes on its esports format next year.
Coming into 2021, the Clash Royale League (CRL) will now hold single-player competitions instead of team competitions since the game was originally meant to be played individually. We might be saying goodbye to the current King of the Hill format, and will be greeted by a new format that “will more closely resemble what all players at home experience” soon according to an official press release from Supercell.
The top 1,000 players in the game will earn a spot at the CRL Seasonal Qualifiers, packed with over US$600,000 in total prize pools. Ultimately, the top 24 players with the highest amount of points by end of September will qualify to compete at the 2021 Clash Royale League World Finals.
The Clash Royale League also announced that they would be upping their World Finals prize pool to a whopping US$1 million. This year’s CRL World Finals prize pool was set at US$380,000, with the lion’s share won by Spanish team Team Queso.
Another Supercell game, Brawl Stars, already got a head start and have increased their World Finals prize pool from US$250,000 to US$1 million this year. Singapore’s PSG Esports was hailed as the World Champions for Brawl Stars World Finals 2020.
More information about the new CRL format will be released next week.
