ARAM Clash 2022: Dates, How to Play & More
Let’s be honest, we’ve all had that one friend who tries way too hard to win a game of All Random All Mid (ARAM). Well, this should be music to their ears as Riot Games has announced that the last Clash tournament of this season in 2022 would be played out on the Howling Abyss map. In League of Legends, Clash is a monthly tournament organized by Riot Games that allows players to team up as five and compete against other teams of the same skill level. Players can start forming teams and scouting for players on Monday of every Clash week, but the actual matches take place on Saturday and Sunday. Usually, Clash matches take place on the Summoner’s Rift map.
ARAM is a game mode in League of Legends in a 5v5 format on the Howling Abyss with the objective to destroy the opposing team's nexus. This map was released in 2012 and players are given random champions from the available champion pool and are able to trade or reroll their picks. Notably, there’s only one lane (middle) in the mode.
