The wait is over. We hope you’re as excited as we are joining us on this daring journey announcing Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends, the competitive Teamfight Tactics Tournament Circuit serving our Players in the EMEA Region. Starting with Gizmos and Gadgets, Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends will allow the most strategic players to battle for a spot to represent the EMEA region at the Set 6 TFT World Championship.
TFT Rising Legends will be based on a point system, with the winners and top 15 scoring players from the Golden Spatula Cup Circuit alongside the top 12 players from the Ranked Ladder qualifying for the EMEA Finals.
Points will be granted throughout the whole set through two main sources: sanctioned tournaments and ranked ladder. Cup Points will be granted by the Golden Spatula Cups, while players will be able to earn Ladder Points through high ranking on their server region’s ladder.
Snapshots of the ranked ladder in each of the participating server regions (EUW, EUNE, TR, and RU) will be taken on a weekly basis and will grant points to the top 100 players from each server region.
Additionally, two more slots for the Finals will be filled by the TFT Superbrawl, a nation-based competition where players will be able to qualify through local tournaments.
Golden Spatula Cups and Open Qualifiers
The Golden Spatula Cups will act as the main sanctioned tournament, with 128 players battling it out in a 3-day tournament, with a finals qualification spot for each winner and Cup Points awarded to the top 32 players. On top of that, each Golden Spatula Cup will have a prize pool of €6,000.
Players will be able to qualify for the Golden Spatula Cups through Open Qualifiers and Ladder Points.
Open Qualifiers will host 512 players with a minimum in-game rank of Diamond II, in a 3-day tournament, with the top 32 players advancing to the Golden Spatula Cup.
Lastly, in the weeks leading up to a Golden Spatula Cup, the top Ladder Point earners in each of the server regions will join those from the Open Qualifiers in qualifying for the tournament.
These Ladder Points will be granted to qualifying players in each region after the ladder snapshot. The first snapshot will take place on November 16, 2021 at 21:59:59 GMT, so make sure you’ve climbed the boards before then!
The TFT Superbrawl will be an 8-region tournament consisting of 2 players representing their region, with each team fighting for a spot in the Finals and a share of the €5,000 prize pool.
Local tournaments will be hosted to determine which players will advance to the TFT Superbrawl. Stay tuned for more info on these tournaments!
TFT Rising Legends Finals
The season will culminate with the TFT Rising Legends Finals, which will see the best 32 players of the EMEA region fighting for a share of the €20,000 prize pool and one of four spots at the Set 6 TFT World Championship.
The top 15 Cup Points earners, top 12 Ladder Point earners and the TFT SuperBrawl and Golden Spatula Cup champions will meet in the Convergence in a 2-day tournament.
