About Clash in the Cloud

Clash in the Cloud is a series of Remote Skills‑Only Events hosted by 18x18az.

Teams must have their own field and webcam setup to participate, as outlined in the Game Manual Appendix B, pages vii–viii, rules <RSE1> through <RSE10>. Remember that your match timer must be on video and visible to the Head Referee as you do your Skills matches.

Skills matches will be facilitated through 18x18az Connect and 18x18az Event Console, a unique solution designed to emulate the in-person experience with on‑demand queuing, direct scoresheet verification, and more. An adult contact for the team must be present in the meeting room at all times while the team is connected.

Please review our Remote Skills Checklist for your specific control system (V5 or Cortex) to ensure you have everything you need to participate.

 

Event Capacity & Spot Reservations

20% of this event's capacity is reserved for Arizona teams. In the event that a sufficient number of Arizona teams do not register, the event will be filled from the waitlist. As this is a blended event, middle‑school and high‑school teams are all welcome to register, with no priority given to either age group.

 

Judging

No judging will take place in this event.
