The winner will bring 500,000 FACEIT Points back to their clan, as well as quadrupling their internal clan leaderboard earnings for their players.04
Over 2.4 million FACEIT points
Clan Wars Season Kickoff consists of 2,476,000 FACEIT Points in prizes. The majority of this pool is distributed among clan players in internal clan leaderboards. The rest of the points is for the clan organizers to be used as prizes in their future competitions.
Internal Clan Leaderboards
You can win points in your clan’s internal leaderboard by winning matches, and you won't lose any points if you lose. So make sure to play as many matches to climb through the ranks in your clan!
For the winner clan, internal clan leaderboard earnings will be multiplied by 4; for the runner-up clan, internal clan leaderboard earnings will be multiplied by 2.
What is a clan?
A clan on FACEIT is a center for a community with common interests to play games together and socialize. Members of clans can create lobbies, optionally with some requirements, or join open lobbies of their own preference to play FACEIT matchmaking matches together. All clans are managed and moderated by a dedicated Community Leader and their team to provide an excellent experience to the members!
Can I earn ELO and complete my missions by playing in a clan?
Yes! All matches played in clans are played in the FACEIT matchmaking and they will affect your ELO, missions, ladders, and leagues.

How can I participate in Clan Wars Season Kickoff?
There is no registration process; all you need to do is join one of the clans listed above and start playing with other clan members through the clan lobby system when the Clan Wars get underway on Friday! One important note is that your lobby needs to be full in order to be counted in leaderboards.
What are the prizes of Clan Wars Season Kickoff?
Clan Wars Season Kickoff consists of a prize pool of over 2.4 million FACEIT points. The majority of this prize pool is for players, given through internal clan leaderboards; and the rest is for the clans to be used in future competitions. Each clan participating in the Clan Wars Season Kickoff has an internal leaderboard with a prize pool of 45,000 FACEIT Points. These points will be distributed among the top 100 players of the clan based on the internal ranking. Furthermore, internal clan leaderboard earnings will be multiplied by 4 for the winner clan, and they’ll be multiplied by 2 for the runner-up clan. You can check your ranking and prize distribution by clicking on the leaderboards tab of your clan.
What is the point system of the leaderboards?
The point system used in internal clan leaderboards is +5/0, meaning you’ll earn 5 points for your each win, and you won’t lose any points if you lose! The points system used in the Clan Wars leaderboard differs by the phase. It starts with +10/-8 on Phase 1, becomes +15/-13 on Phase 2, and +20/-16 on Phase 3 to heat up the competition even further. There is a win streak bonus enabled in both internal and Clan Wars leaderboards. It grants an additional 5 points when you have a win streak of 5 or more matches.
Is there a way I can get my prizes multiplied?
For the winner clan, internal clan leaderboard earnings will be multiplied by 4; for the runner-up clan, internal clan leaderboard earnings will be multiplied by 2. This means if you were supposed to receive 10,000 FACEIT Points, but your clan ends up winning the Clan Wars, you will receive an additional 30,000 FACEIT Points after the event! Therefore, make sure to bring as many wins as possible to your clan during the open phases, and if your clan makes it to the top 3, make sure to cheer for your clan in the finals, as their success will directly affect you!
What do I need to do in order to play in the finals?
Clan leaders of the top 3 clans will decide their own rosters for the finals by choosing from players who have completed at least 10 matches during the Clan Wars. Make sure to bring as many wins as possible to the clan through 5-player lobbies to increase your clan’s chance of being one of the top 3 clans and also to shine out to increase your own chance of getting selected for the finals.
What is the format of the finals?
Only the top 3 clans based on the Clan Wars leaderboard will advance to the finals. In the finals stage, clan leaders of these clans will form a roster to represent the clan in a single-elimination bracket. The bracket starts with a Bo1 semifinal match between the 2nd and the 3rd clan, and continues with a Bo3 final where the winner of the semifinal plays against the 1st clan of the leaderboard.
When will the prizes be distributed?
All prizes earned from internal leaderboards will be distributed 24 hours after the end of the Phase 3. The winning clan members will have their FACEIT Points earnings from the internal clan leaderboard quadrupled and the runner-up will have them doubled within a week after the end of the finals stage.
