After over a month of qualifiers, Oceania’s top 64 Teamfight Tactics (TFT) players will fight it out for 16 coveted spots at the Regional Finals later this year in the Reckoning Mid-Set Invitational, starting July 10.
It’s do or die for Oceania’s best TFT players, with the upcoming Reckoning Mid-Set Invitational pushing the best 16 one step closer to a spot at Worlds later in 2021.
The Order Reckoning Mid-Set Invitational will feature 64 players who qualified through a series of open qualifiers, as well as ladder play, pushing them through daily gauntlets to try and secure their spot at the Regional Finals
There is $4,500 on the line in the event — a third of the $13,500 prize pool set aside for Reckoning competitions in Oceania.
“We’re super excited at ORDER to once again produce the official pathway to the Reckoning World Championship in China later this year,” events director Joshua Swift told Snowball.
“The Mid-Set Invitational is a very important part of the altered format for Oceania in Set 5.”
The top 16 will progress to the Regional Finals, set to be held in the beginning of September on the new Rise of Heroes update.
The winner of the Oceanic Regional Finals will be invited to TFT’s first in-person World Championship, planned to be held in China in October, lining up with the League of Legends World Championship.
“The format for MSI is all about consistency with a much more straightforward point system and no free points for top 4, so players are going to be neck and neck in scoring fighting to secure their spot in the Regional Finals,” head admin Byron “Tycoon” Ward added.
“The aim with this tournament is not just to find Oceanic’s 16 best players, but also our most consistent players. I want whoever we send to the Reckoning Championship to be able to take it all and bring home the title for OCE.”
The Order TFT Reckoning Mid-Set Invitational starts on July 10, and runs until July 19. You can catch the action live on the Order Twitch channel.
