Golden Ticket Tournaments
Originally, Supercell planned to have 8 Golden Ticket Tournaments, but this has been cut short to six. Those six tournaments were:
- Bernard Chong Cup (BCC 6)
- Queso Cup (QC 3)
- ESL Snapdragon Pro Series (ESL S1S1, S1S2)
- Masters Challenge (MC 1)
- Royale MSTRS
- All Stars (ASW)
Previously known as the “6 Weeks of Clash Royale League,” the summer qualifiers are a series of events held in August and September to produce the 10 remaining tickets to the World Finals.
Stage 1: 20-win Challenge (August 6-11)
Players will be able to participate in a 20-win challenge in-game.
Stage 1.1 Registration (August 12-15)
Anyone who has completed the 20-win challenge (gotten 20 wins) will be able to register for the next stage of the event via the in-game Tournament Hub. The Tournament Hub will serve as the main destination for players to compete in future stages of the qualifier.
Stage 2: Ladder (August 15 to 20)
Through the Tournament Hub, players will be able to play up to 10 matches within a 24-hour period. As the Ladder stage runs for 6 days, you can theoretically play up to 60 battles within this stage. You will gain points when you win / loss in these matches. A live leaderboard of players will be available and will sort everyone in ranks.
The top 128 players will advance to stage 3.
Stage 3: Double Elimination (August 27)
The 128 players will play against each other in a double-elimination bracket, where players are eliminated after losing two matches.
The top 32 players remaining in the competition will advance to stage 4.
Stage 4: Swiss (September 3)
32 players will compete in 5 rounds, and players who have won at least three matches will advance to Stage 5. Player are eliminated after three losses.
The top 16 players will advance to stage 5.
Stage 5: Swiss (September 10)
16 players will compete in the same Swiss format as Stage 4. The top 8 players will receive Golden Tickets to the World Finals. The remaining 8 players will have another chance to qualify for the World Finals by playing in the Last Chance Qualifier.
Last Chance Qualifier (September 11)
Taking place immediately after Stage 5 will be the LCQ. The bottom 8 players from Stage 6 will be seeded into a Single Elimination Bracket. The top 2 players from LCQ will earn a Golden Ticket to the World Finals.
The CRL World Finals will take place from September 23-25 in Helsinki, Finland.
Many content creators have already been invited to the finals — we will physically be there also, and we look forward to meeting many of you in person!
The Top 16 players who have won a Golden Ticket will be in Helsinki and participate in a Double Elimination Tournament, where one player will earn the ultimate title as the World Champion of CRL.
The prize pool for the World Finals will be massive — it’ll be over $1,000,000 USD! (one million dollars!)
The world finals prize pool is as follows:
|5th - 6th||$50,000|
|7th - 8th||$40,000|
|9th - 12th||$30,000|
|13th - 16th||$20,000|
