The Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Championship will be the first merit-based system of qualifiers in TFT. Additionally, it will be TFT‘s first global tournament, with a region-specific system of ladders and tournament play. Although the game is available on both mobile and PC, qualification may be platform-specific depending on region.
Participants will qualify from 8 regional qualifiers in North America, China, Europe, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, Turkey, and Latin America. Riot’s official blog post about the championship explained, “We believe the competitive season for Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies will lay the foundation upon which TFT Esports can grow in North America.”
The breakdown of the competition’s ladders, as well as the participating regions, are below:
The North America Final will occur in mid-August over two days. This final will feature 16 players fighting to become the two North American representatives at the Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Championship. The 16 players featured in the final will be determined through two separate methods: ladder and organized play. You can view more about this system on their official site.
Additionally, Riot Games is planning to unveil the Teamfight Tactics Community Competition Guidelines next week for third-party organizers to create opportunities for high-stakes competitive play. They have also mentioned a plan that will make it easier to broadcast and operate TFT tournaments.
