In the biggest, oldest, and the most competitive league in clash royale, vanguard had an arduous task in front of them — qualify for the regular season. In an initial pool of over 200 European teams, only eight would move on to the round of 16, where they would get to prove their worth against the already established teams from seasons past.
In the tournament phase, we had our fair share of ups and downs. Reklaw stayed strong to secure a top 20 finish, while Bob the turtle lost ground, going from 3 to 53. In a stressful finish, Vanguard EU finished 15th overall, where the top 32 teams move on to the qualifiers.
Each of the 32 teams is subdivided into four groups, with eight in each group. The four groups are seeded into a double elimination gauntlet, where the top two teams move on to the round of 16. Vanguard had their fair share of tough competition, facing teams like x6tence, Mkers.
In the end, Vanguard came out victorious defeating Artic Academy and moving onto the Regular Season of RPL Season V.
