Key Changes This Season
We have been listening to our player base and have made some big changes to Arena Clash for this year.
League Changes: The Underground League has been removed and Challenger League has been unlocked, allowing more teams in each arena to enter the Challenger League, get their own jersey and compete against a larger pool of teams. The Challenger League will now use a swiss format in the group stage. This means that there will be more evenly matched games, providing a better experience for all teams.
Secondary Playoffs: We wanted to give more teams an extra chance to win prizes and also gain more competitive experience, so a secondary playoffs bracket has been implemented. Teams that finish between 9th - 16th place will be eligible to compete in this new bracket. Only leagues with at least 16 teams will be eligible to run the secondary bracket.
FIFA20: Unfortunately, FIFA will no longer be a title in this season's Arena Clash tournament. We are looking at alternative tournaments to better suit our current player base and open it up to more audiences. Please keep an eye out for more announcements on this.
What happens at the Qualifiers?
To enter the tournament, you must attend your local arena on the qualifying night of your title choice.
You will be greeted by our friendly staff who will give you a break down on how the qualifiers will work. If required, our arena staff will also organise teams, so don't worry if you are a solo player as we'll help you find teammates.
The qualifier matches will then take place and determine which of the two leagues you'll be most suited to take part in our Arena Clash tournament.
The Championship League is where our top tier players fight it out for the chance to play on stage at Insomnia66, the competition is tough so make use of our arenas to practice beforehand!
If you didn't get the big win on the night, you'll enter our Challenger League. This league offers players the opportunity to experience an esports tournament as part of an official team, training up ready to try advance to Championship League next season.
Arena Clash gives you the chance to experience competitive esports, or simply help improve and develop your skills.
How much does it cost to enter Arena Clash?
Our Qualifiers are free to enter, however, entry to our Arena Clash tournament is £40 for Championship and Challenger players once they have completed their qualifying games. This includes entry into the tournament and your own personalised 2020 Tribe jersey.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Our partners at HyperX provide the equipment to make sure you get the very best gaming experience during qualifiers, so you don't need to bring anything with you. Although we won't stop you from bringing your lucky controller or fight stick if you feel it gives you the edge against the competition!
Our arenas also have snacks and drinks available for purchase during the evening matches if you require some refreshments.
