Clash Royale Wiki

Tournaments is a feature in Clash Royale that allows players to compete against each other in a short-term competition for Gold and Cards. Once you have reached King Level 18, you will be able to join Tournaments and Victory Challenges as well as create Private Tournaments. Winning more matches in Victory Challenges, Special Event Challenges and Global Tournaments before reaching a certain number of losses results in more rewards.

Victory Challenges

  • There are three types of Victory Challenges: Classic Challenge, Grand Challenge, and Mega Draft Challenge. Players can join either one at any time.
  • The Classic Challenge costs 10 Gems to enter, while the Grand Challenge costs 100 Gems to enter. The Mega Draft Challenge costs 50 Gems.
  • Once the Challenge has started, players will be able to battle. The Challenge lasts indefinitely and a battle can be started at any time.
  • The player will be matched with other players who have the same number of wins as them.
  • The number of wins accured by the player will be recorded in a purple shield, while the losses are denoted with red X's, placed within boxes.
  • During the Challenge, the player will be able to see the prize that they have accumulated, and the prize awarded on top of their current prize for the next win.
  • Once the player has won 12 times or lost 3 times in total, the Challenge will automatically end, and the player will receive a Chest containing their current prize (or top prize, if they have won 12 times). The player will then get a chest containing the rewards that he/she can immediately open.
  • Crowns won through battles contribute to Crown Chests.
  • Classic and Grand Challenges use the standard 1v1 battle rules, while Mega Draft Challenges follow the Mega Draft mode format.

Special Event Challenges

Main article: Tournament/Special Event Challenges
  • Special Event Challenges are temporary challenges that have special rules.
  • These challenges often have less rewards in the Challenge Chest but more in total from one-time rewards.

Global Tournaments

  • Global Tournaments occur twice a month.
  • They can use the normal rule, but can also use a Special Event Challenge rule.
  • For those rules using player's own decks, the Level cap can be anywhere from 11 to 14.
  • The minimum King Level to enter a Global Tournament is Level 19.
  • Rules are similar to Special Event Challenges: players accumulate wins to get one-time rewards, and drop out after a certain number of losses.
  • Depending on the number of wins, players can claim the free rewards, as well as buying the bonus rewards with Gems.
  • You can get extra bonuses if ranked sufficiently high on the global leaderboard.

Starting and Participating in Private Tournaments

  • 10 Gems are required to create a tournament.
    • The creator of the tournament pays the Gems. Participants do not pay Gems to enter the tournament.
  • The duration of the tournament can be customized from 30 minutes to 4 hours.
  • There are three options for making a tournament, a host may set:
    • Open - Where anyone can participate in the tournament
    • Password Protected - Where players must enter a password to join the tournament
    • Closed - Where no one can join the tournament
  • The creator can set the battle type of the Tournament, either normal or using a Special Event Challenge rule.
  • For modes that use players' own decks, the creator can set the Level cap for Crown Towers and Cards, from 11 to 14. For modes that do not use players' own decks, all Crown Towers and Cards are fixed at Level 11.
  • Players will join a pool. In that pool, only players participating in the tournament can battle each other.
  • Participants can battle others in the tournament at any time by pressing the Battle button in the Tournament interface.
  • Tournament battles have the same mechanics as regular battles except that there are caps on the Levels of cards and Crown Towers (discussed below).
  • While not in battle, you can spectate players that are currently battling others in the Tournament, by tapping on the red button with an eye. This can be done even if you are not in the Tournament.

Tournament Standard Caps

  • Tournaments and Victory Challenges will use Tournament Rules, just like in Friendly Battles.
  • By default, this means that a player whose King Level and/or Card Levels are higher than the caps will have their Levels reduced to the cap. King Level or Card levels lower than the cap will still be unaffected.
  • King Level is capped at level 11. Because of this, each player's King and Crown Towers will be Level 11 at most.
  • Similarly, all Cards are capped at level 11.
  • However, in Private Tournaments, the creator can set the Level cap to be anywhere from 11 to 14, if the game mode uses players' own battle decks.

Victory Challenge Chests

  • The player is guaranteed a prize simply for entering the Challenge. This prize increases for every win they get in the Challenge.
  • The Chest awarded contains the amount of gold stated in the prize, as well as the number of cards stated in their prize. Every 10th card will be a Rare card, while every 100th card will be an Epic card. There are no Legendary cards guaranteed within these chests.
