The Twitch Rivals is an increasingly popular initiative. After Apex Legends and League of Legends, the latter will host the first official Teamfight Tactics tournament to celebrate the new Riot Games title.
The developer threw himself headlong into the market share opened at the beginning of the year by the DOTA 2 mod, Autochess, a true video game phenomenon of 2019.
Over the course of two days, 64 players will compete to take home the victory and a slice of the rich prize pool of $125,000.
The first day, scheduled for July 17, will feature a group stage, with two groups of 32 players each. The second day, on the other hand, will see the first 16 players compete in knockouts. The full list of tournament participants has not yet been announced, but further details should be released shortly.
If you are a passionate LoL player and are interested in understanding what Teamfight Tactics is, the Twitch Rivals Showdown will give you an idea. The tournament will obviously be broadcast on the official Twitch Rivals channel, as well as on each of the personal channels of the invited streamer.
Twitch Rivals is indeed the first official tournament of Teamfight Tactics even if, on Amazon’s own platform, many events have already been held directly by the streamer. So far, it has been difficult to determine the best player of the new gaming phenomenon of the year, but rookies like Rumay ” Hafu ” Wang, Byron ” Reckful ” Bernstein, Andrew ” TidesofTime ” Biessener and David ” Dog ” Caero seem to be among the best players to the world to follow right now.
In view of the release of TFT, Hafu placed first in the rankings of the PBE, with the highest matchmaking score. However, the goal has changed, and now there is no player that really can be said to be truly unbeatable.
