Esports News – If one can recall, the League of Legends tournament mode “Clash” encountered technical failures when it first launched, and it was then delayed due to issues affecting certain regions. But lo and behold, Riot Games announced that they will introduce a new and improved Clash to the Public Beta Environment (PBE) in September. Amateur LoL groups can now compete in the professional arena once again.
Players can participate in Clash on September 5. But first, the updated version will undergo a staggered scouting phase to ensure that fewer games start at once during the launch. Riot Draggles shared on their post: “We’ll be testing a staggered scouting phase, which allows us to extend the length of the scouting phase for some games, meaning fewer games will start simultaneously. This should significantly reduce the load on the systems that are part of the champ select flow and allow you to get into games more reliably.”
Under the new terms, players can test the game by creating their Clash team and waiting for the lock-in time like the previous version. The new tournaments feature contain four teams, and they will have to follow all the updating schedules of Riot before participating.
Accordingly, Riot scheduled another test on September 11 featuring a four-team bracket taking place again, but will consist of backend changes. The last and final test takes place on September 19 to test the overall performance of the Clash recovery tool. This ensures that the tournament mode can easily recover from issues if something happens again. It will be able to edit tournament details like tier calculations, SMS verification, honor restrictions, ticket bids, and rewards. A technical issue will then require everyone to log out and to execute a soft restart.
If the PBE tests from September 5 to 19 are successful, Riot will move on to regional tests. They hope to finish Clash by the end of 2018 and introduce it as an official tournament mode.
The participating players need a PBE account to take part in the Clash tests. The registration area is on League of Legends official page. The player’s main account must be in good standings (no current bans) and have an honor level 3 or above.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
