2021 Clash of Clans Esports Changes

The new season is gearing up to be a big one with Supercell changing the size of teams participating in Clan Wars. Everyone will need a clan of at least 15 members to compete in the Clan War League. This means almost every aspiring team globally is now racking up their recruitment efforts to field complete rosters in time for the next event.

With most teams fielding rosters of at best 7 players, the new change sees plenty of open slots for anyone who wants their hand at CoC Esports. However, you do need to have the highest Town Hall level to be eligible to play (this is the hard part), and also navigate the maze of competitive Clash of Clans to find a decent team.

Even, the official Clash of Clans Esports Twitter account is lending a hand for people to find players and teammates ahead of this season. Alternatively, you can scout side leagues like ESL Play for potential teams recruiting for this season. You can find the complete 2021 Clash of Clans Esports Ruleset here.

There are plenty monthly events and clan wars leading up to the World Championship this season so you can keep trying until you make it. The first March Clan War is begging soon however, and there is a special event at the end of it.

Clash Worlds Warmup Tournament

Supercell announced the Clash Worlds Warmup tournament for the end of March with $40,000 in prize money. The top 8 clans of the Clan War League Champion 1 tier from the March CWL Championship will get an additional prize on top of, well, the prize – they’ll get to compete against the 2020 World Finalists! Not just them, of course – they’ll be competing against other top clans from around the world as well.

This “mini” event is a lead-up event to the main Clash World Championship event. Since that’s not until May, Supercell created this warmup to ease us into the competitive season. There are 4 days of play for the warmup events, March 20th/21st and 27th/28th.

Fans are already excited… though quite a lot of them are upset that their clans aren’t in the right league to compete in the event. If you are just about to engage into the more competitive side of Clash of Clans, the Warmup event is a great way to understand how the game is played at the highest level.

Clash of Clans World Championship 2021

The main event of the season is the World Championship that’s happening later this year. It has an epic million-dollar prize pool, and will be running from May until October. During that time, there will Monthly and Last Chance Qualifier f0r the World Finals happening at the end of the season.

The first eleven days of each month will be filled with tournament playtime – and each month is its own separate qualifier. The order of events is first a Clan War League or CWL section, followed by the pre-qualifier, and then naturally the monthly qualifier itself.

Players can sign their clans up each month, and if they make it through the Clan War they can play in the Pre-Qualifier. The best teams will then get to play in the Monthly Qualifier – and naturally the best team will win a golden ticket for the Grand Finals!

Don’t worry if you end up not qualifying in one of the events – you can go and participate in different qualifiers if you want, so long as you’ve not yet won a qualifying spot. Of course, if your clan is in the right tier, you can also participate in the Warmup event before the ‘real deal’.

As for the Last Chance Qualifier – teams who come in second place in the previous qualifiers, as well as four wildcard teams from external tournaments, will get to compete for the last few spots. It’ll be all single-elim bracket matches, where each of the two brackets will get the winning team a spot in the finals. Further details to follow.

By the end of it all, 8 teams will be competing in the Grand Finals for the big prize… and the 2021 title!
