We try to predict the Clash schedule for League of Legends and predict how it might change in the future!

After last week’s initial launch of Clash in North America, League of Legends players are clearly hungry for more of the game’s first team-wide competitive mode. Reviews were raving about the competitive and collaborative nature of Clash and asking Riot when it will be coming back.

Well, the short answer is that we don’t know for sure. However, back when the game mode was first announced Riot said that Clash tournaments would be held every other weekend. While initially, Riot promised three tournaments per weekend, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, after the initial beta turned Clash into “Crash” that was reduced to just Saturday and Sunday tournaments. However, even when Riot made that change to the tournament schedule, they continued to re-iterate that the tournament would be every two weeks.

This is good news for my fellow NA brethren, as this means we will likely get another Clash weekend next weekend, March 7 and 8. Riot had also promised that each month the tournament would have a different theme or reward. Last week was the Demacia Cup, so we’ll have to wait and see if the next tournament will be based on another region of Runeterra!

I played in one of the Clash tournaments last weekend in NA (even though my team got crushed, it was super fun) and this weekend EUW and EUNE servers will get their first opportunity to Clash after server instability delayed the launch last week. I actually think this might be a blessing in disguise. With the tournaments on separate weekends, Riot can more closely monitor how the initial Clash tournaments are going in each region and coordinate to improve them, rather than having twice the data to go through on Mondays.

Next. How Riot can solve the problem of smurfing. dark

For our EU readers, good luck and have fun in the Clash tournaments this weekend! For everyone else, keep practicing for the next Clash weekend, coming up with team comp ideas, and coming up with suggestions to help Riot improve this new game mode!
