Global Tournaments

Global Tournaments are the main event in which players can regularly compete at tournament standard levels. There are usually 2 Global Tournaments per month: one with normal battle format and another one with a special game mode.

After a GT concludes, Supercell performs a Fair Play check on the top 1000 accounts of the leaderboard. Players who pass this check are listed in the final leaderboard, and that's what RoyaleAPI uses to create the final badges.

As a consequence of this:

  • There are often small rank mismatches when compared to in-game badges. Many players are moved up a few ranks in the leaderboard due to the disqualified players that have been removed. In-game ranks are assigned before these players are removed from the leaderboard.

  • Getting a badge in-game does not guarantee a badge in your RoyaleAPI profile. If you are one of the disqualified players, your account won't be listed in the final leaderboard, so you won't be eligible for this badge.

If you want to know more details about these issues, the Global Tournament FAQ might be helpful.

There are a total of 5 available badges related to Global Tournaments:

  • 1 for Global Tournament Rating
  • 3 for normal Global Tournaments
  • 1 for special Global Tournaments
