What is Clash?

Clash is an in-game tournament system for League, acting as a replacement for the old Ranked Fives queue. It allows for teams to organize themselves to participate in monthly tournaments against teams of a similar skill level.

There are eight teams in every Clash bracket, thrown together in a single-elimination style bracket. If you lose the first game though, you’ll have a chance at redemption in the consolation bracket, so it’s not all bad news.

You’ll be seeded against teams with a similar rank in your tier. There are four tiers in Clash ⁠— going from Tier IV as the lowest to Tier I at the top ⁠— based on your team’s average ranking and previous Clash performances.

How to sign-up for Clash in League of Legends

Before you can jump into the action, you need to make sure your League account is eligible. If you have hit level 30, have verified your League account by SMS, and currently have a rank in either Solo or Flex queue, you can play Clash.

From there, you just need to find four other friends, and add them to your team in the Clash bracket of the client. You will all need to pay an entry fee with tickets.

When the dues have been paid, you’ll have to wait for your bracket to unlock on the day before you can start playing. You’ll need to sign-up for every tournament individually, so if you want to play multiple times a weekend, be sure to sign-up twice.

You’ll have the chance to name your team and design a logo for Clash.

What rewards are on offer for Clash?

Winning in Clash gives you Victory Points, which go towards unlocking a banner on your League profile.

On top of that, your banner will also display in your chosen lane on the Rift every time you load in. The more times you win, the better your banner will look.

If you claim a bracket all for yourself, you’ll also take home a trophy. These trophies will display on your profile, as well as on the Rift for two weeks.

The more games you win, the more decked out your banner becomes.

Regardless of result though, all players will receive a Clash Orb or Capsule, depending on whether they signed up with a regular ticket or a premium one.

More rewards are loaded into these depending on your result, with the premium capsule containing more goodies than the regular orb.

Skin shards, Clash logos, emotes, and more are jam-packed into each orb and capsule, however, so even if you bow out early, you’ll still get something.
