24 players, including one Oceanic Star, will face off in the TFT Fates Championship, starting on April 7.
Riot Games has announced details about the upcoming Teamfight Tactics Global Championship, due to take place from April 7 to 9. The tournament will feature 24 competitors from across the globe, each fighting for a share of the $250,000 USD prize pool.
With regional qualifiers already underway in various regions, the Set 4 Global Championship builds on the last with more spots and a larger prize pool.
“Teamfight Tactics continues to be one of our fastest-growing titles due to its accessibility and depth,” said Whalen Rozelle, Sr. Director of Esports at Riot Games.
“To meet the massive demand for organized competition, for the Fates Championship we increased both the prize pool and the number of players who can qualify for the event. We also will explore new ways to further celebrate the esport globally.”
The event will occur online and take place over three days under a swiss-style format. On days 1 and 2, the bottom 8 scoring players will be eliminated from the event, while the final day will be a race for players to secure themselves a first place finish.
With player numbers at an all-time high for Teamfight Tactics, including over 1 million in Oceania, additional slots for players is a welcome change.
It’s come to the benefit of Oceanic players too, with the region given a direct path into the event for its number one player, a change from the fused NA/OCE qualifier in Set 3.
Previously, Australian player Oubo finished 13-14th in the TFT Galaxies Championships after making his way through the qualifier ahead of many competitive NA players.
The Oceanic TFT Fates Regional Series, hosted by Order, is currently ongoing, with the second closed qualifier taking place on February 12. The series will determine the region’s representative to the Fates Championship at the end of the 32-man finals on March 11 to 14.
