The biggest North American Teamfight Tactics tournament of the Gizmos & Gadgets expansion thus far has just wrapped up. The Mid-Set Finale brought together the 32 best players from across NA to fight it out for a cash prize and the first four spots at the NA Regional Finals. Here are the winning compositions from the finals on Day 3.
Kyivix’s Scholar Heimer
“Kyivix,” who has created a reputation for being one of the best reroll composition players in North America, flexed his skill in Game 1 of the Mid-Set Finale finals. They piloted an unorthodox Scholar composition that utilized multiple three-star carries including Heimerdinger and Lissandra.
DQA’s Challenger Yone
In Game 2, Invictus Gaming’s “DQA” piloted a Yone Challenger composition with a little extra fire power. With the power of two Challenger Emblems, DQA was able to hit the eight-challenger interval and to add onto the pain, DQA had clockwork making Yone the true blade master. Oh, and they also had an Academy Emblem on Orianna for extra damage. A nice send off before Yone and Academy leave in Neon Nights.
“Aesah” piloted one of the best compositions in the game in Game 3. The Innovator trait has been a powerful choice for players throughout the entirety of the Gizmos & Gadgets expansion. But the comp truly shines when players can get an Innovator Emblem, enabling the seven-Innovator interval. With the Hextech dragon on the board, players are hard to beat. But in Aesah’s case, they also had a Tahm Kench feeding items to their entire team which gave Aesah one of the easiest wins in the finals.
Ramblinnn’s Mutant Sniper Jhin Urgot
“Ramblinnn” has been one of the best tournament players in North America over the past year and in Game 4 of the Mid-Set Finale, they showed why. Given a ton of emblems throughout the game, Ramblinnn busted out a composition that consisted of a powerful pair that are often the carries of their own compositions, but not usually together. With Jhin becoming a Mutant and Urgot becoming a Sniper, this Chemtech Mutant Sniper board was more than good enough to bring Ramblinnn a win in Game 4 of the Mid-Set Finale.
Setsuko’s Arcanist Viktor
After a game featuring one of the wildest compositions in the tournament, “Setsuko” went with a basic-but-powerful approach in Game 5. Not wanting to make things complicated for no reason in a high-pressure Game 5, Setsuko decided to go deep in the Arcanist tree and play a simple, but effective, Arcanist Viktor composition with a Vex frontline. The comp was good enough for the win.
Aesah’s Mutant Lux Malzhar
Finally, to cap off the event, Aesah picked up their second win of the finals playing a Mutant composition. The final two compositions in Game 6 were both Mutant compositions. But Aesah’s proved to be a tad stronger as they pushed to Level 9 while Kyivix was only Level 7. With Lux firing rapid-fire shots and Malazhar cleaning up, the final round was an easy victory for Aesah. However, Kyyivix got the last laugh as with the second-place finish, Kyivix was crowned the overall Mid-Set Finale winner.
