ESL Account

ESL Play is hosting several tournaments, for a number of games. Clash of Clans is one of them. In order to participate in these tournaments, you have to create an account on the website. To do that, simply head to this page and register. If you already have an account head here to log in.

Note: It is mandatory for everyone in your team to create an account.

Create a team

This step only applies to one player per team. This player is the team leader.

After all of your team members have created their accounts, it's time to create a team. To do that, visit the “Your teams” page. Click the yellow “Create team” button on the top right, choose a team name and click “Create team” again on the right side of the text field.

After your team has been created you will be immediately redirected to your team profile. As you can see, you are the only one in the team yet, so let's go ahead and invite your teammates.

If you scroll down a little, you’ll find a link to the “Team control center”. After clicking it, a text field with an invite link shall appear in the middle of the page. Copy that and send it to your teammates.

To attach your Clash of Clans account please follow these steps:

  • Navigate to one of the qualifiers on our site.

  • Select the qualifier you want to participate in.

  • Click the yellow “Register” button on the right side of the page.

  • Enter your # and your API token to the respective fields.

  • Click the “Confirm” button.

Note: All of your team members will have to do this as well!

Public Clan War Logs

The website is only able to close the matches you have played automatically, if your clan’s war log is set to public. Therefore you will only be eligible if you have it set the right way. You can find this setting at your clan profile in-game by clicking the “Edit” button.

Signing up for the qualifiers

The Sign up will be closed on the 6th of each month at 12:00 CEST
