Game publisher Riot Games has announced Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends: Gizmos and Gadgets, the latest official tournament for its auto battler title.
The new EMEA circuit, set to take place from November 2021 to March 2022, will be operated by GGTech Entertainment and is expected to feature a €43,000 (~£36,300) prize pool.
According to the release, the competition will allow players to earn points and qualify for the EMEA Finals through Ranked matches in-game or Golden Spatula Cups.
Local tournaments will also be hosted, culminating in the TFT Rising Legends Superbrawl, a regional nation-based event. Throughout the whole circuit, 32 players will be advancing to the regional Finals.
Specifically, players will have the chance to advance through the following competitions:
- Golden Spatula Cups: Three Cups will be hosted in December, January, and March. Players will be able to qualify through Ranked play or by participating in the corresponding Open Qualifiers.
- Rising Legends Superbrawl: An eight-region tournament consisting of two players representing each region, fighting for two slots in the EMEA Finals.
- Rising Legends EMEA Finals: The best players in the EMEA region will meet in this event, where players will fight for one of the four spots at the TFT World Championship.
Earlier this year, Riot named prediction platform BallStreet Trading as the official fantasy and fan engagement partner for Teamfight Tactics North America Esports. In April, Riot also held the Teamfight Tactics: Fates Championship, which featured a $250,000 (£180,755) prize pool.
Esports Insider says: In 2021 Riot Games has emphasised its TFT esports ecosystem and, as a result, successfully created new competitive experiences for its fans. The Gizmos and Gadgets new circuit will likely boost the publisher’s popularity on livestreaming platforms and create higher demand for TFT content.
