Reddit user u/TheDavenger figured out a way to out-RNG Teamfight Tactics: create a Twitch Plays script for the game to get chat to play the game for you.

If you're not familiar with the Twitch Plays category on Twitch, it's for automated channels that play various games via scripts. The scripts draw on chat inputs to make every possible in-game decision such as movement and action commands.

In a game like TFT that already has a large degree of built-in RNG, the amount of crazy, piecemeal team compositions and strategies that could come out of this is hilarious. What's even funnier is thinking about the amount of players that probably wouldn't notice if they were matched against the account. Here's a clip from the stream of the account winning a game in Iron I elo.

Since Riot Games generally frowns upon any type of account tampering or automation, a disclaimer has been placed on the channel stating that the account is operated by a human. Everything is still up and running and there haven't been any issues, so the climb will continue. Who knows, maybe the brilliant strategic minds in Twitch chat can bring this account to Gold.
