Big Money, Big Tactics
Aspiring pros across North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania will qualify through regional tournaments. What can you expect in the Teamfight Tactics Fates Championship? Across three days, three will be a Swiss Format, which shakes things up for TFT. Day 1 will have the 24 participants in three lobbies, based on the regional qualifiers and how they did in them. The top 16 will go on to Day 2.
Day 2 of the Teamfight Tactics Fates Championship has the top 16 in two lobbies, based on their Day 1 performance. The top 8 point earners will make their way to Day 3 and the championships. Finally, on Day 3, the top 8 will do their best to accumulate as many points as possible. First place takes the victory after getting 18 points and will be the Teamfight Tactics Fates champion.
“Teamfight Tactics continues to be one of our fastest-growing titles due to its accessibility and depth,” said Whalen Rozelle, senior director of esports at Riot Games. “To meet the massive demand for organized competition, for the Fates Championship, we increased both the prize pool and the number of players who can qualify for the event. We also will explore new ways to further celebrate the esport globally.”
Teamfight Tactics is such a fun, exciting way to enjoy the League of Legends characters. Riot Games has a nice variety of esports going on this year. More than 100 League of Legends teams are going at it as they had towards the Mid-Season Invitational and the World Championships. Valorant will have the Champions Tour across three circuits: Challengers, Masters, Champions. We also see more Teamfight Tactics action. Between the advent of Teamfight Tactics and Legends of Runeterra, Riot Games offers something for just about everyone.
