Clash Royale: A universally recognized mobile gameThe third official event unveiled by the 2019 WCG was Clash Royale. This mobile game is played with cute-looking characters and looks quite simple. At first glance, it does not appear to live up to its name.However, the people who have played this game will probably understand why this game has been chosen as an official WCG event.The appeal of Clash Royale is broader and deeper than any other e-sport game in existence today.Clash Royale was released in 2016 by Supercell, which is also responsible for hits such as Clash of Clans and Hay Day. Clash Royale is based on the same system as Clash of Clans but has stronger strategic aspects, maximizing the fun of combat. All of these things are what make Clash Royale a smash hit.The game has an intricate, real-time match-making system that makes it easy to play against opponents with similar settings, and each round is short, but still requires players to think about what they will do, broadening the number of choices available. In the game, there is also a sense of tension, resulting from the game’s real-time changes. Trade tokens were also added to the game so that even casual players can catch up to their opponents as long as they have the necessary skills.With the success of Clash Royale, Supercell was able to solidify its image as a company that releases only ‘must-play games.’ Supercell also gained attention at the end of last year with its release of Brawl Stars, which is also being lauded as a top, next-generation Esports game.27M gamers in the preliminaries for the 2017 Clash Royale Crown ChampionshipThe number of gamers who compete in the Clash Royale Preliminaries is almost unfathomable. Supercell’s key to Esports success has been creating games that are ‘open to everyone.’ In Clash Royale, anyone can easily acquire cards using only in-game rewards. Also, in tournament mode, card levels are the same for all users. This allows players to compete against each other based only on their skills and wit.Based on the game’s accessibility, users began making their own small-scale tournaments, which grew over time. Supercell strategically supported these tournaments, and a few pro teams were formed.Clash Royale has continued to evolve since its inception. If the Crown Championship in 2017 was a world tournament for all amateurs, 2018 was a year in which professional teams faced off against each other in the global arena. In 2018, a regular league was formed and played for two seasons, and a World Finals was held with winnings of up to KRW 1.1 billion.There is not a gamer today that doesn’t recognize that Clash Royale has become a global Esports event, despite the fact that it’s a mobile game. The reason why Clash Royale was selected as a demonstration event for the 2018 Asian Games was most likely because it can be enjoyed from anywhere in the world.Another reason why the Clash Royale WCG deserves our attention is because nobody knows which player will be victorious.Out of all the WCG events, Clash Royale is the most likely to give birth to a champion that has yet to be discovered. The vast pool of Clash Royale gamers also makes it highly likely that there will be plenty of upsets and drama.Leading countries in Esports have already organized their professional Clash Royale teams and even at this very moment, many skilled gamers are gathering together, dreaming of becoming the next Esports stars. Some of these gamers now engaging in league play are also becoming the topic of hot news stories and stirring up excitement among viewers.Amateur gamers should not be taken lightly either. Clash Royale is a game in which users can show off their skill without having to invest too much time. While practice is important, the decisive factor for this game is strategy and quick thinking.Who will bring honor to their country and take home the gold medal, along with a cash prize of USD 50,000? What unknown masters of the game are out there, just waiting to be discovered? These questions are the biggest reasons why people have such high expectations for the matches, which will be played on the small screen in Xi’an in July following the completion of the regional finals.A fun game to watchEven for Clash Royale newbies, watching just one or two games is enough to learn most of the game rules, including how the game is won. After being surprised by the simple rules, viewers will be in awe of the various methods of psychological warfare and super plays used in the game. Clash Royale is also very intuitive, making it one of the most fun mobile games in the world to watch.WCG selected mobile games as official events in 2008 when smartphones first started to become popular. The first mobile game ever to be officially included in the WCG was Asphalt. It was strange back then to see national representatives facing off in a 3D racing game using only a tiny mobile phone screen.Today, a decade later, the mobile platform has become the most popular game platform in the world. The hidden potential of mobile games—which nobody paid attention to years ago—has finally come into the limelight.The inclusion of Clash Royale in the WCG attests to the fact that Esports have now taken root as everyday sports. In the Clash Royale League Challenge event, held in March, users who recorded 20 wins were made eligible to try out for the WCG. This was a huge preliminary in which anyone in the world could participate. Users were disqualified once they recorded three losses, so the competition was light at times and fierce at other times, creating an atmosphere that was almost like a festival. Players from around the world who became eligible through the regional preliminaries are now looking toward the finals. Each successful player experienced the sweet taste of victory and a great sense of achievement as they competed in local preliminaries and are now headed toward the grand stage of their dreams.The WCG, the ‘Global Esports Festival,’ will return in 2019 and is set to start on the smallest of stages—in your house and on the palm of your hands.
