Riot Games unveil Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Championship
Riot Games announced Monday that Teamfight Tactics will crown the first global champion later this year.
The Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Championship will take place at the end of Set Three and offer a $200 000 prize pool. Sixteen players from around the world will qualify through a region-specific system of ladders and tournaments to ensure that the best competitors from every region are represented.
Starting in May, Riot Games will award weekly points based on North American ladder rankings. At the conclusion of 12 weeks, the 10 players with the most points will earn a spot at the NA Final.
Several online tournaments in May will aid in awarding another two seats to the final, as well as four more berths given through "partner qualification events" in June and July.
The North America Final takes place mid-August to determine which two players will move on to the Teamfight Tactics Galaxies Championship. Those finalists will be joined by 14 players from other regions, including Korea, China, Europe, Latin America, Brazil, Turkey, the CIS, and the Middle East.
On their website, Riot Games said it will release community guidelines.
"In addition to the Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Championship, we’re going to take steps to create more opportunities for top TFT players and grow the broader competitive ecosystem. First, we’re releasing the TFT Community Competition Guidelines to unlock organizers to create more opportunities for high stakes competitive play. We're also working on tools that will make it easier to broadcast and operate tournaments, and we hope to share details on our progress soon."
