The hunt continues.
With the Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning Championship drawing closer, we now have our final group of elite players. Following 4 weeks of relentless battling on the EUW, EUNE, TR, and CIS ranked ladders, the 64 strongest players in Europe have stepped up to potentially represent the region on the world stage.
But this is only the beginning. From here on out, there is very little room for error as 60 players will eventually be eliminated and just four world-class players will get to test themselves against competitors from across the globe.
The 64 qualified players will compete over the next two weekends with 12 rounds of swiss pairings taking place on the 31st of July and 1st of August. Cruelly, only 16 players - those who collect the most points - will advance onto the second round where they will compete again on the 14th and 15th of August.
The final 16 players will play 5 rounds in 2 lobbies on the 14th with seeding based on players’ previous performances. Points will be reset before the games commence and, once again, players will gather points using the same scoring format as before. From there, the top 4 players from each lobby will advance to form a stacked final 8.
August 15th will then act as judgment day. Another point reset will represent a clean slate as the final 8 will have to perform at the peak of their abilities across 5 extraordinarily tense games in order to qualify for the TFT Reckoning World Championships as one of Europe’s 4 representatives.
And fortunately you can witness all of the breathtaking games as both rounds on August 14th and 15th will feature a full broadcast.
You won’t want to miss a single second of the action so make sure you tune in when the games commence at 12:30 BST on August 14th and 15th.
With Europe’s elite stepping up to face off, it’s only right that we accompany them with a fantastic group of broadcast talent for the upcoming streams. Your eyes will be met with exceptional TFT competition while your ears will be blessed by the brilliant commentary and analysis from this wonderful line-up who are joining us for the third time:
After previously casting LCS academy games and another of other gaming titles, Thomas “TJ” Baldeschwieler has brought his exciting commentary talents and half-British half-American accent to the competitive scene of TFT. Not wanting to be a one-trick pony, TJ can act as both a colour and play-by-play commentator.
Next is American shoutcaster Matthew "Nibiria" Clendaniel. With years of experience and impressive cv with the LPL, Twitch Rivals, and Wild Rift tournaments just some of the competitions he has covered, Nibiria is another strong asset to the team as is his adorable corgi, Foxxy.
Having competed at the top level of multiple card games and covered a wide array of esports titles as a caster, Benjamin "Wita" Kvist Tornbo has a brilliant, tactical mind which, along with his extensive research, makes the Dane the perfect man to deliver big-brain analysis on elite-level TFT games.
The high-pressure of Worlds qualifiers will bring out the very best of Europe’s most talented players over the next two weeks of remarkable match-ups. Has there ever been a better time to be a TFT fan?
