CRL23: Everything you need to know!

Jan 30, 2023

Ready to take on CRL by storm? Here are all the details on rules, schedules, a prize pool breakdown and other info you need to know about what’s coming!


The road to the World Finals is long and full of challenges. The goal is clear: beat the best to become the best. From March till September, you will have seven chances to prove yourself among the world’s greatest players. We’ve saved seven spots in the World Finals for each Monthly Final winner and seven more for the most consistent challengers who couldn’t win one. Two extra spots are reserved for our China qualifiers!

Sounds good? Let’s dive into every step leading up to the World Finals!


Starting February 6th, the Path of Legends will be worth more than in-game rewards and fame. For each of the seven seasons, the Path of Legends' top 1000 players will be guaranteed a spot in our Monthly Qualifiers. You know the drill: climb your way to the “Ultimate Champion League” and build your rating to finish the season in the top 1000. Succeed and you are one step closer to becoming a Monthly Finalist.


By being in the top 1000 on the Path of Legends leaderboard by the end of the season, you’ll be able to sign-up for the Monthly Qualifiers. Everything, from sign-ups to battling will be done in the Tournament Hub in-game! Be prepared for two days of intense competition where only eight players will qualify for the next stage. As for the format? Let's break it down:

Day 1: A 1000-player Swiss Bracket to be played until 32 players remain.

Day 2: Double Round Robin. Players will be placed into one of 8 groups of 4 players. The top player from each group will advance to the Monthly Final.

All battles will be played using the in-game Duels format.


If you’re among the eight best in the Monthly Qualifiers, then congratulations: you are a Monthly Finalist! As such, you’ll be placed in a Double Elimination bracket, Duels format. Two days of competition await you. From there, it’s quite simple: Win it all and you are in the World Finals. If you fall short, don't despair, as your effort wasn’t in vain. That’s where the Competitive Points come into play!


Each Monthly Final winner will earn a Golden Ticket, which means qualifying to the World Finals. Pretty straightforward. But if you keep losing that final match, there’s still a good chance for you! As you advance in each season, you’ll collect Competitive Points. Every win counts! Here’s how you’ll earn Competitive Points:

Monthly Qualifier

  • Day 1 (Swiss): 5 points per win (up to 55)
  • Day 2 (Double Round Robin): 5 points per win (up to 30)

Monthly Final

  • 1st place: 100 points
  • 2nd place: 80 points
  • 3rd place: 65 points
  • 4th place: 50 points
  • 5th-6th: 40 points
  • 7th-8th: 30 points

Keep collecting those Competitive Points. If by the end of the last Monthly Final, you are a Competitive Leaderboard’s Top-7, you guarantee your spot in the World Finals!


Let’s review all the steps for each season!

  1. Path of Legends: finish in the top 1000 to advance!
  2. Monthly Qualifiers a. Sign-up in the Tournament Hub b. Swiss format: Reach the last 32 c. Double round robin (8 groups of 4 players): Get to the 1st place in your group
