LoL — Clash Mode returns on September 30 for a new round of tests!

We've been waiting for a tournament mode on League of Legends for years — but it seems that our wait is now close from its end. The Clash Mode is cursed, or at least that's what we've been telling ourselves for months. However, in the last "Ask Riot" the development team had confirmed that a new round of tests would soon happen on the European servers. Well, it's now a certainty: Clash is back on the EUW, EUN and RU servers!


From September 30 to October 4

Tests & Changes

Riot Games changed the tournament format in order to prevent servers from overloading. For this main reason, the games will follow a staggered schedule to avoid having too many games starting at the same time — which means that players who will miss their locking time will have the possibility to play into the next bracket.

Instead of having a tournament spread on three days, we will have two one-day-long tournaments. Brackets and tournament trees should be simplified allowing players to have more freedom. You won't need to be able to play three consecutive days anymore since both days will include brackets of eight teams — meaning your team will be free to participate during one or two days.

At the end of the day, the most important point is without a doubt the simplification of the tournament structure which allows more freedom — especially if you want to do a last-minute change to your roster. If one of your opponents isn't connected when the tournament is supposed to start, the new Clash technology should, in theory, find you another team to compete against.

Now, we just have to wait and hope for the best!

Clash is back! (on the PBE)
