Cloud9 is thrilled to announce that, in partnership with Riot Games, we will be hosting a Teamfight Tactics Tournament, with the qualifying period beginning in June! The tournament will consist of 32 participants, of which 12 will be directly invited to compete and the remaining 20 will be decided by standings in the challenger ladder. The standings will be checked every Wednesday for the month of June, and the top 20 players based on average LP will be invited to compete.
The tournament will then kick off on July 8th and will be broken up into four groups of eight players. The top four players of each group will then move on to the semifinal round, before the tournament culminates with a four-player finale on July 30th.
“We’ve all been in love with Teamfight Tactics since day one and getting the chance to work with Riot to promote the growth of the game and the community is something we’re really excited about. There’s incredible talent out there, and we’re thrilled to be bringing players an opportunity to showcase it.”–Gaylen Malone, Cloud9 Sr. General Manager
We look forward to putting on an amazing showcase with some of the best talent around! Make sure you tune into our Twitch channel on July 8th to follow the tournament live, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Discord for additional updates.
