Goodbye and Thank You, Jmonte!

The Tribe is sad to announce that we’re saying goodbye to a beloved member of our family.

Justin “jmonte” Montalbano will not be rejoining us for the CRL Fall 2019 season and will be retiring from his professional Clash Royale career to attend college.

Jmonte’s been a mainstay of our Clash Royale League roster since its inception last year, and it’s safe to say he’s become an iconic cornerstone of competitive Clash Royale – dabbing his way to victory ever since his debut in Fall 2017.

We’re incredibly proud of what he’s accomplished throughout his time with the Tribe, and though we’re sad to see him go, the Tribe supports his decision to pursue higher education wholeheartedly. From the entire Tribe family, thank you for your dedication and efforts, Jmonte!

Farewell, Spades | Clash Royale

Tribe Gaming has opted to terminate the contract of Keoni “Spades” Chung.

Spades has been a dedicated member of our Clash Royale League team over the 2019 Spring Season. As a newcomer to the Clash Royale League, his contributions to the Tribe have been innumerable, and helped our team ultimately reach the playoffs – no easy feat when we compete among the best Clash Royale squads in the world.

“Spades was a core member of our Clash Royale division this season, and it’s safe to say we wouldn’t have reached the playoffs without his efforts. Moving forward, we’re excited to watch his Clash Royale career develop, and we’ll be rooting for Spades along the way – so long as he isn’t facing us!”

– Patrick “Chief Pat” Carney, Tribe Gaming CEO

We thank Spades from the bottom of our hearts for his commitment to Tribe Gaming throughout this season of the Clash Royale League. The Tribe will be eternally grateful for his hard work and contributions to the team, and we wish him the best in his continued career in professional Clash Royale.

CRL Playoff-Bound! | #TRBCR

After a grueling six-week season of Clash Royale League play, our squad showed their determination and skills to prove themselves as one of the top Clash Royale teams in the West!

We’re incredibly glad we have the chance to battle in tomorrow’s playoffs for the top spot in CRL West, along with a spot in the World Cyber Games (WCG) 2019, taking place later this month in Xi’an, China.

Qualifying for the playoffs in 6th place means we have the biggest challenge to rise to the top of the standings, having to defeat every other team in the gauntlet – but, we’ve never been ones to back down from a challenge.

The other teams had better watch their backs, because #TEAMTRIBE’s in this to win it.

Welcome to the Tribe, Eelke! | Clash Royale

Today, we’re proud to introduce Eelke as our new CRL Head Coach!

The Argentinian Clash Royale veteran is definitely one of the most seasoned coaches in the game—he’s previously served as coach and captain of the Argentinian national Clash Royale team.

He’ll be joining our CRL squad in our Los Angeles team house for the upcoming season—we couldn’t be happier to have this legend with the team. Under his tutelage, we’re certain our players will be a force to be reckoned with this CRL split.

Welcome to the Tribe, Eelke!

ESWC 2017 PGW Recap

Last week, we saw thousands gather at one of the most highly-anticipated Esports events in the entire world–ESWC 2017 PGW. The games took place in Paris and we saw the best of the best pro Clash Royale players taking the spotlight in a series of games that happened over two days.

Tribe Gaming’s Tin2, Electrify and Oxalate played their specific group stages and did their very best.


Tin2 Wins The La Poste Sportsmanship Trophy


The most exciting part about the event was when Tin was presented the one and only La Poste Sportsmanship Trophy for the incredible sportsmanship that he displayed throughout the games.

Due to wifi connection problems in the event, many of the players disconnected in the midst of their games. Tin was by far the most understanding and generous player at ESWC, giving rematches to every single player that disconnected against him.

“I gave rematches to all the people that disconnected against me so I ended up playing 7 games against Joao, 6-7 against rypper and 6 against naginata. It was a total of 7 rematches.” – Tin2

The La Poste Sportsmanship Trophy is awarded every year to the player that displays true sportsmanship in the games. The winner is chosen based on the values carried by both the ESWC and traditional sports: fair play, respect of the rules, the organizing team and the opponent.

We are so delighted that Tin won the award and reflected Tribe’s own values in his actions.

“Playing on stage was exciting, would’ve loved it if my phone didn’t freeze during the game. I think I played a lot better on stage than I did in the CR area too.” -Tin2


Electrify’s First Ever Live Event


Electrify is Tribe’s latest addition to the CR Pro Team and ESWC 2017 was his first ever live event. His performance during the games was amazing and he managed to reach the bracket finals. While he did not clinch a trophy, Electrify fared really well despite this being his first ever live event.

Electrify has never trained for live events so ESWC 2017 was his official initiation to live Esports events. To say the least, he was electrifying⚡!

“I’m in the finals of CCGS ROW and that’s the biggest thing I have going now. Clash Royale is my favourite game and I really enjoy playing it. I have been a pro player for awhile now and I’m so excited to be a part of Tribe Gaming.” – Electrify

CCGS ROW is arguably not as competitive as the NA & EU regions so Electrify is looking to improve heavily in this game.

Electrify’s dedication and commitment to the game is evident from his hard work and the thrilling experiences he gained at ESWC has really motivated him to work even harder to lead Tribe Gaming to success.

“I look forward to future games and live events with Tribe Gaming. I don’t know what the future holds but I am so pumped for what’s to come.” – Electrify
