We are back! After being on hiatus for the past few days as we went under maintenance mode, here is our (belated) report on the 6th Clash Royale Legendary Arena Season!
The competition for in the Legendary Arena standings was as fierce as ever, and once again the battle for the top spot came down to just one match between the top two players. Derek Cheung 鍾培生 of HKEsports made a final push for the #1 rank on the final day, but fell just 10 trophies short of the new top ranked player: 琦玉老师 (Saitama Sensei, aka One Punch Man!) Saitama Sensei of Team WE may very soon become a household name in Clash Royale, as this is now the second consecutive season in which he has finished in the Top 3. Rounding out the Top 5 are 顺风笑嘻嘻 逆风战无敌 (name too long to translate, will just call him “Unbeatable”), 长孙CC的打手 (Zhangsun CC’s Dashou), and Bright Light. Both CC and Bright Light competed in MoEsport’s Clan Wars invitational just before their final push at the end of the season, so be sure to check out their highlights if you haven’t already!
CC’s clan 大唐天子 (Datang Tianzi) did not manage to win the Clan Wars Invitational, but perhaps finishing the season with the Top Clans spot can be seen a consolation prize. In our initiative to better surface the top clans in the game, we have been working on a new Clan Rankings system based on a new points system that will accumulate for each MoEsport season. We will be introducing this in our next post, so keep an eye out of this soon!
A major reason why we are pushing for more acknowledgement for clan rankings is that it can serve as a possible deterrent to the rampant win trading that we are now seeing on a regular basis. It’s no coincidence that 4 of the top 50 players ended the Legendary Arena season with no clans; by focusing more on clan rankings over individual rankings, we hope this will discourage players from clan hopping, and encourage clans to better manage their players in hopes that their clan will achieve top status with meaningful impact.
