Game developer Riot Games has renewed its partnership with media and entertainment production company Wisdom Gaming for its Monsters Attack! Teamfight Tactics competitive series in North America.
The circuit will take place from January to May 2023, with the best players from the region advancing to the Monsters Attack! World Championship later in the year.
The total prize pool across the NA Monsters Attack! competitive series is $100,000 (⁓£81,400), with the Regional Finals boasting a $35,000 (⁓£28,500) reward. This is $10,000 (⁓£8,100) more than last year.
This competitive series marks Wisdom Gaming’s sixth season as the official broadcast production and tournament organiser for the NA competitive circuit. The Monsters Attack! series will be the eighth set in Teamfight Tactics since the game’s release.
The two companies also announced a partnership renewal in June 2022 for the NA circuit of the Rising Legends TFT tournament series, which saw Wisdom operate the Dragonlands Championship. In addition, the two parties have teamed up for championships in other Riot titles in the past, such as Legends of Runeterra and League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Jaycie Gluck, Senior Vice President of Wisdom Gaming, commented on the news: “We’re thrilled to be back and working with Riot Games for a sixth season as the official broadcast production partner for NA TFT. The excitement coming off of Set 7 has been incredible, and we can’t wait to continue creating content for the TFT community.”
The Monsters Attack! tournament will end in May 2023, with the finals taking place over three days. Riot and Wisdom haven’t yet announced how many players from North America will qualify for the World Championship, but it has been confirmed that the player with the highest average placement across the entire event will receive a spot.
