Clash of Clans World Championship (COCWC) Roadmap had been completely revealed for the year 2022, the official esports program of Supercell‘s Clash of Clans. After the success in recent years, Supercell brings back the World Championship again this year with a massive prize pool of $1 million. However, the format of this championship is entirely changed this year. In this article, we would look at the new format and break it down for everyone.
Clash of Clans World Championship 2022: Format
In 2022, Supercell completely changed the Championship Format to strengthen its ties to the community. Thus, they included a few chosen community-organized competitions in the Championship, which was introduced in a prior article.
Each of the 8 World finalist teams this year must achieve a Golden Ticket to secure their place in the competition. Earlier this year, the Supercell team announced that the teams could earn the Golden Tickets in two ways.
Teams will earn the first 4 Golden Tickets through the community-organized competitions, which will be held from January until early August with a prize pool of $50,000 each. The second way to earn a Golden Ticket is through the in-game Championship Qualifiers.
The Championship Qualifiers will be open to all players with Town Hall 14. The top four teams from this qualifier will earn one Golden Ticket each and proceed to the World Championship Finals in Helsinki, Finland.
Supercell collaborated with four community tournaments, providing 1 Golden Ticket with each to the winners of these tournaments. Each of these tournaments will have a prize pool of $50,000 and its own format. Supercell will give the 4 Golden Tickets through the following community tournaments:
Queso Cup Golden Edition
Queso Cup Golden Edition was held from the 19th of March, 2022 to the 10th of April, 2022 in this year. The tournament was held in a historic Swiss format stage with over 500 teams, contesting for the first Golden Ticket. After an intense contest in the Queso Cup Golden Edition, X Team E-Sport emerged as the winners and earned the first entry to the World Championship Finals with the first Golden Ticket.
Clash MSTRS: Gold Edition
After three Open Qualifiers and the Last Chance Qualifier, Clash MSTRS: Gold Edition got its eight playoff teams. After three days of intense playoffs, M.S Esports emerged victorious and got the second Golden Ticket to the Clash of Clans World Championship Final.
Snapdragon Pro Series
Teams from Europe & Middle East/North Africa, and North America are competing in the Snapdragon Mobile Open, which started on April 12th. Meanwhile, the Indian series began on June 2nd.
Two teams from Europe & Middle East/ North Africa, one from North America, and one from India will qualify for the decider tournament which will be held on August 7th, 2022 in Poland. The winner of this tournament will win a Golden Ticket to the World Championship Finals.
Queso Cup Golden Edition II
The Queso Cup Golden Edition II winner will win a Golden Ticket to the World Championship. Queso Cup Golden Edition II will have a total of four open qualifiers.
The first Open Qualifier started on June 25th, the second Open Qualifier on July 2nd, the third will begin on July 9th, and the last qualifier on July 16th. The top 4 teams from each qualifier will advance to the next stage, where the teams will be mixed into four groups depending on their qualifier’s performance. The top two teams of each group will advance to the Playoffs.
In the Playoffs, the top 8 teams from the group stage will be battling in a double-elimination bracket, and the winner will win the Golden Ticket and a piece of the $50,000 prize pool.
Championship Qualifiers: More than four teams would qualify
Another way of earning the Golden Ticket is the Supercell Official Championship Qualifiers. Clans will fight in 5-week clash mayhem from August 10th- September 10th, 2022 in the online tournament hosted by Supercell.
Registration for the Championship Qualifiers will take place from the 3rd to the 10th of August, 2022 through the in-game Tournament Hub. During these dates, every Town Hall 14 player will be able to access the Tournament Hub by tapping the in-game Clash of Clans World Championship button. However, players must be at least 16 years old to participate in the Championship Qualifiers.
The top 4 teams from this event will compete against the four teams qualified from the community tournaments in the Clash of Clans World Championship 2022 finals for their share of the $1,000 000 prize pool.
The eight teams qualified from the community tournaments and Championship Qualifiers will compete for the title of World Champions and a piece of the $1,000,000 prize pool from the 23rd of September to September 25th, 2022. Supercell recently announced that the Clash of Clans World Championship Finals would be held in Supercell’s hometown, Helsinki, Finland.
