League of Legends’ latest Clash weekend has been delayed in the European region following issues with the EUW and EUNE servers for the past few days.

Clash, League’s tournament mode, offers teams of five friends the ability to compete against other teams on Summoner’s Rift for a chance at winning a slew of prizes. The mode has been in the works for a while now but continues to suffer problems whenever a launch is supposed to happen.

Clash has been nicknamed “Crash” for its bugs and frequent crashing, causing server issues. Riot said in a tweet that the current server issues will not be able to allow players to have a good Clash experience, and so it is delayed for a week on the EUW and EUNE servers.

During the last Clash’s global beta in December, Riot introduced a number of much-needed changes to the tournament mode, such as rolling bracket starts and a bracket repair tech to quickly fix any bugs. Teams earned rewards, including banners, loot boxes, and summoner’s icons, for simply participating in the Clash tests over the year.

Players will need to wait one more week to have a chance at snagging the Clash rewards. Hopefully for fans of the mode, the servers won’t have any issues by next week.
