On this Monday’s Riot Pls, Riot revealed League’s newest mode: Clash. The new game mode introduces an in-game competitive play to make regular players feel like pros.
The new feature promises to provide a thrilling and intense competition as well as Deliver real rewards. “Clash” will introduce a brand new experience to players who love to compete; There will be Team Brackets and the more you advance in the competition, the better your rewards will get. Not only your rewards will get better, but obviously, the teams you that face off as you advance in the brackets will also get a lot better, which contributes even more to a full competitive experience.
A full competitive scenario:
Before the match starts you will have a short window of time called Scouting Phase where the game will show you statistics about your opponents; such as their most played (and most successful ) champions as well as the champs that they played recently in Clash.
The ban-system will be just like what you have seen in the professional competitive play; Split Draft consists of each team banning three champions first, then picks three. In the second phase, each team will ban two more, then pick two.
Further, in a response to a player who said it will be much better if all the champions were unlocked for the Clash Mode, Riot Calad said he agrees, and thus every champion will be unlocked for the new mode.
Riot said the new gamemode will be available on Live early in 2018. If you play on EUW, EUNE or TR you will have the privilege to try out the Beta version. Check euw.leagueoflegends.com or eune.leagueoflegends.com for signup details.
