Looks like the most anticipated League of Legends’ game mode, Clash, has been plunging into the dark.
Clash mode was supposed to be launched on May 25 but was hindered by technical issues including bugs. These problems caused the game to not start or crash, which made Riot stop the most anticipated game mode since last season. Riot might be working on it until now and is still doing multiple tests. However, since then, no news about the progress has been announced. To make it up for the players, Riot released ARURF mode instead of Clash, in exchange for the players’ effort in freeing the weekend.
Earlier this month, Riot had a test version of Clash inviting players without any payment but the technical issues still exists. That was the last test and the last news everyone heard about the game mode. Clash mode is still under maintenance obviously.
Clash is a game mode to give summoners the taste of an esports league tournament
It is a three-day online tournament every weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) which practically starts on Monday so you and your team can have time to practice and discuss different tactics. Just like any other esports tournament right? That’s what this game mode is for – to give you an experience on what it’s like to compete worldwide.
The main purpose of this game mode is to give value to team play. This will also help players have that competitive mindset in every game. The exciting part in this game mode is the rewards you can get as a team: in-game items including, orbs and hextech boxes and of course, trophies! Trophies are displayed on your profile forever and can also be seen sometimes in-game.
“Ultimately, we want players to feel like Clash is the way League is meant to be played with friends… We’re not saying ranked isn’t important anymore, but League is a sport and a team game and that’s where we want Clash to be the focus.”
Let’s just hope for the best that developers will announce good news about this game mode.
