The South American Community Clash- What it is and how it all works?
Community Clash is finally back in SA! With the return of this unique community event, we thought we would provide some clarity for players on its new format and why you should take part.
What is Community Clash?
Clans are digital communities on FACEIT where you can easily find other like-minded players to play with.
Community Clash is a matchmaking event that brings all the clans that are created by streamers, and communities together in a large competition. Players are able to queue up for FACEIT matchmaking through the clan lobby system and win matches to earn points for their clans.
You can check which clans are open in your region here.
During a Community Clash, simply join the clan of your choosing, and queue in a 5-stack to earn points for your clan.
Your wins and losses will determine where your clan sits on the Clash leaderboard. Community Clashes aim to pit your 5-stack against the 5-stack of another clan in matchmaking, so things can quickly get competitive!
Once all the stages of the Community Clash event is over, FACEIT points and prizes are distributed directly to the players of the winning clans, so they may proceed to the FACEIT Shop and cash out their winnings.
How will the SA Community Clash work?
This edition of the Community Clash will have 2 stages.
- Clash Phase: Dec 1st (19h BRT)- Dec 8th (21h BRT)
During the clash phase, play in 5-stacks in the clan of your choice to contribute points towards the Clash leaderboard.
All clans start at 0 points and the following point system is observed:
- Day 1 - 4 : +4 per win -3 pts per loss
- Day 5 - 7 : +8 per win -6 pts per loss
- Win streak bonus: 5 wins +4 pts
At the end of the 8 days, the top 16 clans will progress to the Playoff Phase. The top 16 clans from the Clash phase will be seeded based on their Clash standings. #1 vs #16, #2 vs #15, and so on.
- Playoff Phase: 9th Dec-10th Dec
During the clash phase, each clan leader will select 4 players from their clan to team up with for the playoff phase. The top 16 at the end of the clash phase will enter a single elimination bracket.
You can read the full ruleset about the playoff phase, player eligibility and prizes here.
Why participate in the Community Clash?
- BE PART OF A COMMUNITY
Community Clash is a great place to find like-minded teammates to grind for ELO, missions and leaderboards with. With a selection of many communities, make sure to choose a clan you have a genuine interest in. This could be an influencer you follow, a team you support, or a local community that shares a common interest.
- EARN FACEIT Points
During the Community Clash, there are tons of prizes to be earned. Even if your clan is not successful in taking the top slots, there are many individual prizes you can earn by playing and supporting the clan of your choice.
- NEVER PLAY SOLO AGAIN AND AVOID TOXICITY
The clan lobby system allows you to easily find players of similar skill levels and attitudes. Each clan is protected by community admins who keep the toxic players out.
- WIN THE COMMUNITY CLASH AND A UNIQUE BADGE
Taking part in Community Clash gives you access to many additional prizes that aren’t available regularly. By taking part in this event, not only will you get the chance to propel your community to the top and give them a spotlight, but you will also share in the winnings and earn a unique badge as you fight to secure your spot as winner of the SA Community Clash Circuit 2023!
Can’t find a clan that suits your interests?
If you don’t find a community to your liking, you can just create one yourself! Simply use the ‘+’ icon in the sidebar on the FACEIT platform in the Clans section, and you can create your own clan from scratch. Invite your friends and start grinding! If your clan is identified as a prospective candidate, it may be invited to participate in the upcoming Clash event.
