Last year’s CRL West

2018 was an amazing year for competitive Clash Royale. More than 25 million players competed in the Clash Royale League Challenge to qualify for the CRL, with many of the world’s best esports rosters qualifying for playoffs.

Nova Esports from managed to fight off the competition and were crowned the first ever CRL World champions in front of over 700,000 cheering fans (including Chinese viewers).

So what’s different this year?

In contrast to the 2018 Clash Royale League, 2019 will have the following differences to stand out and improve year-on-year:

  • CRL West has consolidated NA, EU and LATAM into one region. This aims to create a consistent format across CRL China, CRL Asia and CRL West.
  • CRL West will now have around the same number of teams as CRL China and CRL Asia.
  • CRL West will follow the same competitive schedule throughout the year.
  • This means that CRL West will have two seasons: Spring and Fall Seasons.
  • Studio Location: Los Angeles
