Riot Games has confirmed via Twitter that the popular tournament mode Clash will be returning to League of Legends. Clash first released back in late 2017, and it has since had a tumultuous release schedule fraught with delays and developmental issues.
Starting on Feb. 22, Clash will be open to all players, with those that register a team online receiving one free ticket. In previous Clash events, tickets have cost either 990 Blue Essence or 215 RP. If players do purchase the ticket with RP, it will upgrade to the Premium Ticket, which increases the prizes received at the end of the tournament. In order to compete, players must also have reached level 30, completed at least one Summoner’s Rift ranked queue, and have their League of Legends account verified.
The newest iteration of Clash will include several updates, perhaps most importantly increasing the number of matches played during the tournament from two to three. Riot Games also discussed increasing rewards and how future tournament schedules need to be run as to not make the tournaments feel too long.

Getting ready to climb in League of Legends‘ Clash
For those planning to enter the Clash tournament, teams will need to establish a team captain, who in turn will need to create a team name, logo, and tag for the events. The team will then be placed in a tier depending on their overall skill level. The tiers range from I to IV, with I being the highest. Games in Clash are single elimination, so teams need to prepare to climb to the top. Despite being single elimination, players can enter the second tournament on Feb. 23 to try and earn better rewards.
Riot Games has not said much else, so players will have to wait until Feb. 22 gets a little closer for more information. That gives players plenty of time until the start of the tournament to get some practice in and, more importantly, pick out their team name and logo.
