Teamfight Tactics has officially come out of the beta phase. The game has sustained a stable player base to keep itself sustainable.

16 popular streamers have already been selected out to attend the largest ever Teamfight Tactics tournament. Many names on the list are famous streamers from many established organizations. We can see G2 Esports’ Rumay “Hafu” Wang, Liquid’s Rafael “Rakin” Knittel, and TSM’s Jang “Keane” Lae-young.

16 players will be divided into 2 groups of 8 people and play 5 matches to earn points based on their finishing standings. Players can also get some bonus points for completing challenges, as a way of diversifying the gameplay. The top 4 players in each group will advance to the finals on the next day.
The finals will be an endless battle here until one out of 8 players accumulates 3 victories. It will be a fierce battle as there is no second or 3rd place, just a sole winner. With the tactic-reliant gameplay, the finals will be interesting as we will get to see how pros counter and kill off one player before he reaches 3 wins.
With the total prize pool of $150,250, the money will be distributed pretty fair among players. Whoever makes it past the day one will get $10,750 (₹7.6 LAKH) each. The winner takes an extra amount of money, winning $15,000 (₹10.6 LAKH) while the day one eliminated players will earn a bit less, $7,500 (₹5.3 LAKH). Moreover, the winner will receive an extra reward, an exclusive custom Teamfight Tactics jacket.
Fans around the world can watch the tournament through LoL Esports’ Youtube and Riot Games Twitch channels. Don't forget to watch this fun tournament on October 30 and 31.
