Qualifying for the Gizmos and Gadgets Championship

This season, The TFT Gizmos and Gadgets Championship will feature 12 more players than previous tournaments, bringing the total up from 20 players. Here is the breakdown of who will qualify based on region

  • Europe, Middle East and Africa: 5
  • China: 5
  • North America: 4
  • Korea: 4
  • Brazil: 3
  • Latin America: 3
  • Japan: 2
  • Oceania: 2

These 28 spots are static, and the remaining four spots will be decided by two different events: Two from the Last Chance Qualifier and two for the winning region of the TFT Asian Cup.

The tournament format

Day 1 will see the 32 players split into four lobbies. After three games, players will then be reseeded into new lobbies based on regional seeding. After that, players will play an additional three games, bringing the total to six for the day.

Players will earn points based on placements in each game, with the standard eight points for first down to one point for eighth place. At the end of the six games, the top 16 point earners will advance to Day 2.

Day 2 will follow the exact same format as Day 1. The 16 players will split into two lobbies and play three games. After three games, the lobbies will be reseeded and the players will play an additional three games. After the end of this six-game series, the top eight point earners will qualify for the finals on Day 3.

Unlike many of the regional finals, the finals of the TFT Gizmos and Gadgets Championship will use the checkmate format. In this format, the eight players will not play a set amount of games. Instead, they will be racing against each other for points. Players will put themselves in “check” once they hit the point threshold. Once a player in check wins a game, the tournament ends.

The winner of that game will claim the title of TFT Gizmos and Gadgets Champion. The point threshold for this stage of the event is 18.
