Bernard Chong’s upcoming Clash Royale Masters Challenge will have $50,000 and a Golden Ticket to the Clash Royale League (CRL) World Finals 2022 up for grabs, he unveiled yesterday. The competition kicks off on May 16.

This year, Supercell is working with community tournament organizers to give out Golden Tickets to the World Finals. Eight tickets will be given out in this way, with the remaining eight being distributed through an official Supercell event called “Six weeks of the CRL” in August. 

The Masters Challenge will happen across four phases and will be open to all players. These are as follows:

  • Open Qualifiers (Phase one)
    • This phase will happen through the in-game tournament mode, where 48 open qualifiers will be played.
    • The top six players from each qualifier will make it to the next phase. 
  • Swiss Round (Phase two)
    • The 288 players from the first phase will be divided into four Swiss tournaments consisting of 72 players each. 
    • The top six players from each bracket will advance to phase three. 
  • Group Stage (Phase three)
    • The 24 players that have qualified for the third phase will be split into four groups of six players each. 
    • They will play in a single round-robin each game following the best-of-three duels format. 
    • The top four teams from each group will make it to the last phase of the Masters Challenge. 
  • Final Bracket (Phase four)
    • The 16 players will compete in a double-elimination bracket to crown a champion. 

The schedule for the Masters Challenge is as follows. 

  • Phase one: May 16 to 22
