Matchmaking riot

We just announced Clash , a new team-based competitive mode coming to League in We saw that players struggled to manage their team effectively and it felt like a chore to get four friends together who would commit to grinding all year to get to Diamond.

This, coupled with increasing queue times and poor quality matches, made for a pretty crappy experience. Considering how fun League can be when playing in a group of friends, the Ranked Teams queue ultimately felt like a missed opportunity.

We looked to esports, grassroots tournament play, and our own Riot Rumble , asking ourselves if we could bring the same feels to League players in-client. Could we build something high-stakes and team-based that was competitive for all players, regardless of skill level? Could we make it an intense sprintin contrast to the marathon of Ranked? And how could we make winning teams feel like legendary champions? You can choose to play in any of the brackets over three days, but only teams that sign up on Friday and continue winning all the way to Sunday have a shot at taking home the biggest prizes.

Those are the basicsbut Clash will also feature new tools and systems that we think will bring the feeling of a professional, high-stakes tournament to your matches. As we developed, we focused on three key things we thought a mode like Clash should accomplish: Tickets are unique to Clash and obtainable with Blue Essence, Riot Points, or earnable in other ways like regular repeating missions.

Each team member must enter at least one Ticket to participate in a Clash tournament, but adding more will multiply your rewards for winning.

With Tickets on the line, you can count on commitment from your teammates to see the tournament all the way through, a decrease in the amount of teams that bail midway, and real stakes on the line to play for. A buy-in with Tickets also allows us to give better rewards without totally breaking our in-game economy. Teams have the chance to get first blood in the draft phase, strategically picking compositions that can give them the edge in the game.

On top of this, champ select features the same split draft we use in pro play: With your team all on the same page, you can make decisions and necessary sacrifices in champ select that everyone can get on board with.

You can find the most important stuff to know about the beta test right here, and a full FAQ about how a Clash tournament actually works below.

See you on the Rift! Important stuff This is a technical beta. Clash is still being developed, but we want your feedback early. You can give feedback, report bugs, and find teams. Come hang out with us here: Get situated and ready to play early!

Each tournament is matchmade by tier. Losing is not the end of your tournament run. Each day has a consolation bracket for the losers of the first match. Yeah, you lost your first match. Basically, everyone gets to play two games no matter what! You can also enter for your friends! You can get Tickets to enter by: Entry Requirements What are the requirements to play in a Clash tournament? Teams can continue to be assembled until games begin on each day. When do I have to show up to each tournament?

Everyone on your team must show up during the minute Lock-in Phase before the first match starts. How is a Clash tournament structured? A Clash tournament is a series of single-elimination brackets over three days.

In rare occasions, there will be bye rounds automatic advancement when playing with an odd number of teams. Clash aims to strike a balance between an epic event that happens for a limited time and a regular, ongoing competition. Three days allows you the opportunity to jump in when you have the time, but also make playing all three days worth it. Do I have to play all three days? Teams can participate in one, two, or three days of the tournament.

Any no-shows from those teammates will result in automatic elimination. Team Creation Can I switch out my team during the weekend? For emergency situations, you can substitute players if they are in or below your Skill Tier. How does substituting players work? However, if one of those players becomes unavailable for the next bracket, you can substitute them out.

You can only sub out one player at a time, and only once per bracket, and then that sub must play all the matches in that bracket. How do I unlock the team logo chromas? Rewards How do I get rewards? Everyone who participates will earn Clash Capsules whether they win or lose. These are individual, so your teammates may receive different things in their Capsules. In each capsule, you are guaranteed: A 3-win XP boost A new Clash team logo Standard loot items champ shards, champion skin shards, ward skin shards which get better as your team progresses through brackets Each of these are multiplied by the amount of tickets you enter.

All VP earned during the beta test will be removed after the tournament has concluded. When do I get my rewards? If you lose your bracket, your Capsule and any prizes are immediately awarded. If you win your bracket, your Capsule is upgraded and carried over to the next day. If your team goes undefeated all three days and wins the tournament, your supremely-upgraded Clash Capsule awards the best possible prizes.

I won a bracket! What do I get? During the Clash Beta this weekend, all players who win a 4, 8, or team bracket will earn an exclusive summoner icon. How do tickets affect rewards? The number of tickets you enter directly increases the number of Capsules you earn, regardless of your performance.

How many tickets can I get? You can only use up to five Tickets for each entry. Skill Tiers What are the Skill Tiers? How did I get placed?

Every player has a hidden Clash MMR, which is based off your Ranked play and some back-end secret sauce.

Teams are placed in a Matchmaking Tier based on that MMR, and your tournament bracket will only have other teams from your Matchmaking Tier. Can I invite any person onto my team? Yup, providing they meet the entry criteria above!

Remember that the wider the skill gap between teammates, the more matchmaking will have to compensate read: Why did my Tier change before my team finished locking in?

As players are added to your team, Clash reassesses your Skill Tier to ensure you are put into a competitive bracket. Swing by the Discord channel:
