1. Cup rules

1.1. Game account

All players participating in the Clash Royale competitions must enter their Clash Royale ID as a game account. The ID of the game is necessary to invite the contestant to play the match and to check if the correct participant is playing. To participate in tournaments organized by ESL, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a registered player on the ESL Play platform.

1.2. Default Victory / No show

Once you have tried to contact your opponent during the first 10 minutes of the game, you can request the default victory. Please open a protest in your match page. In some cases the admin can decide, depending on the circumstances, if the match should be played.

1.3. Results

Both players are responsible for entering the results correctly on the ESL page. Therefore both players have to take a screenshot at the end of the game, where the final result can be clearly visualized, this must be subsequently uploaded on the ESL page. If you have a problem or conflict in your match, please open a protest, the administration team can review your case and make a decision. The decision may also imply that both players are disqualified, if there is not enough evidence to determine a clear winner.

Here is an example of how the screenshot should be for the result to be valid:
