Paytm First Games has announced the launch of the Clash Royale Championship in India. It is a year-long event that will have four tournaments, and gamers will compete to win a prize pool of Rs.10 lakhs along with vouchers of leading brands.
The first tournament of this championship will be held from 24th May to 26th July. Players across the country can register for this esports tournament on Paytm First Games app. The other three tournaments will be organized between August and March 2021.
This tournament will be played in a 1 vs 1 format only. The entire competition will be online withmultiple elimination formats depending upon the round. It will also feature all the top Clash Royale players in India including the winners of the previous season.
Sudhanshu Gupta, COO, Paytm First Games said, “We kick started our eSports journey with a standalone Clash Royale tournament last month. Owing to the encouraging response we have decided to roll out a year-long championship series which will give Clash Royale fans ample opportunities to compete in 4 seasons across the year. We are also expanding the format to add more games in the eliminator leg to give players a more even chance to compete. The finals will be live-streamed again on Paytm First Games app, Paytm Inbox, and our YouTube channel."
This will be Paytm's second major Clash Royale event in India, with the first one taking place just a month ago. However the tournament did have some issues with players alleging that the competitive integrity was compromised.
