Albion Online’s thrilling high-stakes Crystal League competition is returning with a bang! The Championship, with notable changes from previous seasons, will feature two tournaments spanning the weekend, hosted on both Albion East and West servers.
The Crystal League Championships (CLC) will unfold during the offseason, with the EAST server CLC scheduled for Saturday, June 10th, from 10:00 UTC to 15:00 UTC, and the WEST server CLC set for Sunday, June 11th, from 17:00 UTC to 22:00 UTC.
In a refreshing departure from previous seasons, battles will be non-lethal, hard-capped at 1800 IP. Participants will be required to bring their own gear, and matches will run through the in-game scrim UI. Specific times will be provided to the teams prior to each match, and teams should be ready for back-to-back matches if needed.
Teams will compete in a single-elimination bracket with best-of-three matches (BO3). Once the qualifying teams are announced on June 5th, they must provide team information, including team name, designated substitute, team captain, team members, and a team logo created using in-game guild logo creation tools.
Eight teams will be chosen to participate in the Championship for each server, comprising 4 teams from the Lethal league and 4 teams from the Non-lethal league. A new points system has been devised to ensure a fair chance of qualifying for all teams, and no-shows will count the same as full wins within this system.
Strict rules have been set in place for the Championship, encompassing general regulations, qualification guidelines, match and break rules, and substitute rules. Teams found to be in violation of these rules will be subject to penalties at the discretion of the Championship organizers.
Exciting prizes await the top four teams, with the first-place team set to receive the extremely rare Sabertooth Rex Swiftclaw skin unlock item and 10,000 Gold. Second-place winners will receive the Recruiter’s Giant Frog item and 5,000 Gold. The third and fourth-place teams will receive the Sheep dog skin unlock item and the Sand Salamander unlock item, respectively, along with 5,000 Gold.
