Gem League S3

Guys and gals, welcome to the third season of the Gem League organized by Gameling, a Singaporean esports platform that we already know for the Pubg Gauntlet League. However here we are on Clash Royale again and with a league that is accessible for team from all over the world as Gameling offer regional groups during the first stages (qualifier and first stage).

We followed the first two episoded of this league (first edition was called Fireball Cup) and we saw how Ray Wong (Gameling CEO) demonstrated to be a great manager. He had been able to convert community feedbacks into reality, improving the quality of his leagues but without forgetting to keep things clear and simple also for amateur and semi pro teams. At Livegaming we give him a big credit for this and we want to help him spreading this league to all our readers. We are also aware that Supercell is not providing any big news for our loved game so we feel in needs to bring all the great news we find because we don't want to see this game dying.
