Developer Supercell is bringing back one of the best parts of Clash Royale: the creation of fantasy esports teams in the Clash Royale League with Fantasy Royale. Beginning on September 21 through the game’s Esports tab, players will be able to manage all aspects of the league.
For the unfamiliar, Fantasy Royale allows players to create a team of Clash Royale League competitors from among the best in the world. Users then watch and track their performance during Clash Royale League broadcasts, and score Crowns for every Crown your fantasy player earns in a match. Exactly like other fantasy leagues, participants can trade their fantasy players all throughout the season and win rewards based on their end of season performance.
Scoring & Rewards
For the most part, the objective of participants in Fantasy Royale is to collect as many Crowns as possible. Once a week, trades can be made if a player is not working out for your individual team. Crowns are only counted towards your total when a player is on your roster and cannot retroactively be awarded once a trade is made.
All Fantasy participants in the top three places will receive an in-game reward for their success, including:
- 1st Place: 1,000 Gems
- 2nd Place: 500 Gems
- 3rd Place: 250 Gems
Interested players need to act fast, since you must create a Fantasy Royale deck for your region by the following dates, or will be unable to join:
- CRL West Fantasy Royale starts September 21
- CRL China Fantasy Royale starts September 20
- CRL Asia Fantasy Royale starts September 19
Clash Royale League takes place every Saturday and Sunday at 10 AM Pacific, and players can watch the action by clicking here.
Fantasy esports has been growing significantly with the rise of esports over the past decade. There are now so many games that push for an esports presence and that market their players to draw in a loyal following of consumers that it makes perfect sense for fantasy leagues to sprout for most games. Clash Royale is actually an obvious choice for such a fantasy league as the game has a large esports following, which is out of the ordinary for a game that is exclusively on mobile platforms.
There is also a sizable prize pool up for grabs. This year the best of the best will be competing in Clash Royal for $1 million in the upcoming Clash Royale League.
Be sure to act quickly, though. One only has a couple of days before their teams need to be locked in, otherwise you will need to wait until the start of the next season.
