Humans, elves, and orcs lived together in peace for hundreds of years before the orcs started to encroach on the borders of human and elf civilization, inciting war. The orcs teamed up with the evil organization, Pandora, to invade the humans and elves, summoning the ancient gods in the process. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/Eternity+Guardians/feature.asp?c=75646'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/Eternity+Guardians/feature.asp?c=75646 Fri, 20 Oct 2017 12:04:00 GMT Tickets now available for Clash Royale's Crown Championship finale, taking place in London's Copper Box Arena December 3rd <img src="http://images.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/imgthumbs/na-stblg/capture.jpg" width="200" alt="Tickets now available for Clash Royale's Crown Championship finale, taking place in London's Copper Box Arena December 3rd" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> In case you're not aware just yet, <em>Clash Royale</em> will soon be hosting the final of their global competition to find out who exactly has what it takes to be the best of the best. <br><br>When the competition kicked off in August there were over 27 million players battling it out to earn their place at the top of the list. 16 players are still in the running but only one can take home the crown and the $150,000 mega-prize. <br><br>If you want don't want to miss the grand final you can watch it on <a href="https://go.twitch.tv/clashroyale">Twitch</a> or <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_F8DoJf9MZogEOU51TpTbQ">YouTube</a>, or if you want to be in the action you can grab yourself a ticket to the live event in London's Copper Box Arena.
