Clash Royale's inaugral North American championship finishes with the Crown Duel on December 17th

Clash Royale's inaugral North American championship finishes with the Crown Duel on December 17th

Supercell will be holding the finals of its first ever North American Clash Royale tournament in Los Angeles on December 17th.

The event will see eight finalists face off in the Crown Duel to determine a winner. Each finalist wins a minimum of $1,500, with the overall winner taking home $15,000 and an all-expenses paid trip to Supercell's HQ in Helsinki.

The eight top players have been whittled down from over 300,000 entrants. Battles have been broadcast on Twitch and YouTube, with special "ridiculous" Arena Battles being turned into YouTube videos that have earned over 800,000 views combined.

Second best

The Crown Duel is only the second Clash Royale tournament organised by Supercell. The first was held in Helsinki in April 2016, and drew 2.6 million Twitch viewers across the event.

Clash Royale was set to be the year's biggest game before Pokemon GO took over. It was on track to generate $1 billion in 2016 alone back in April 2016.

That said, the success of this latest tournament, and the award of Best iPhone Game of 2016 on the Apple App Store, proves it does still have some life left in it.
