The developer behind PvP mobile card game Clash Royale is establishing its official eSports league, the Clash Royale League, this March. It will consist of leagues from North America, Europe, Asia, and Mainland China. Each region will host 6 to 12 teams, each composing of 4 to 6 players.
The Asian league will have 12 teams, with 4 slots dedicated to the Southeast Asian region. Representatives could come from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, or Malaysia. To determine the teams, the league will follow a round robin format. Only the top teams will advance to the playoffs, and whichever team emerges the victor at the regionals will face off against other regions' top contenders at the finals.
Any player has the chance to join the Clash Royale League. If you want to be part of the league, you must participate in Clash Royale's in-game event called the "Clash Royale League Challenge". It is already taking place and will end on March 19. If you get 20 wins in the said event, you'll be granted access to the next round and the eligibility to be drafted to a professional Clash Royale League team.
Clash Royale is the spin-off to the globally addictive mobile game Clash of Clans. Players use a deck of up to eight cards of characters to, in a three-minute battle, attack your opponent's towers while defending your own. It is free to download on the Google Play Store and App Store.
