I dag er den nye turnering Lone Star Clash blevet annonceret til at holde sin tredje version.

Det er de to organisationer Texas eSports Association og Wellplayed.org som kommer til at gøre denne turnering mulig. Turneringen vil tage sted d. 3-4 maj, i Austin Events Center i Austin, Texas. Der kommer til at være to invitationsturneringer, Starcraft og League of Legends.

Starcraft derimod vil  bestå af 16 spillere, hvoraf 11 af dem er inviteret af arrangørerne og 4 som har kvalificeret sig, og en fra Collegiate Star League qualifier. Af hver gruppe er der 2 der går videre som skal kæmpe i playoff om den store pengepræmie.

Udover disse to turneringer bliver finalerne i IvyLoL sæson 3 også afholdt i Austin. Præmiepuljen kommer til at ligge på de $15.000 i de første to turneringer, mens IvyLoL alene trækker $5.000.
