Supercell’s Clash Royale title has had quite some year, and it was also recently named Google Play’s Game of the Year 2017. The mobile games developer, which has offices in Helsinki (HQ), San Francisco, Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai, is also behind titles including Clash of Clans, Hay Day and Boom Beach.
Esports Insider says: $150,000 in the bag then for the first world champion of Clash Royale’s growing scene. Great to see another big esports event hosted in our city of London too, and we hope more will follow suit. Congratulations Sergioramos:) and good work by Supercell.
