The tournament will feature a Swiss format, which means players will be divided into groups and will advance or get eliminated each day, depending on their performance (on the course of these 3 tournament days).
On Day 1, the 24 participants will be sorted into 3 lobbies based on their regional qualifier performance. The top 16 players with the most points at the end of Day 1 will advance to Day 2.
On Day 2, the 16 participants will be sorted into 2 lobbies, depending on their Day 1 performance. The top 8 players with the most points will move on to the last tournament day, Day 3.
On Day 3, the last 8 players will compete for the grand prize, with the first player reaching 18 points securing the TFT Fates Champion title.
TFT Fates Champoinship - The prize poolWhat is a competition without a hefty prize pool? In the rapidly increasing TFT Fates Championship, the total prize is now $250,000 dollars, significantly more than the one we saw in the TFT Galaxies Championship, which was $200,000 dollars.
All 24 players will receive a prize, based on their final performance (points cumulated) in the Fates Championship. The first player will receive the big prize - $41,500 dollars, while the 24th player will get $4,000 dollars.
Personally, I'm thrilled to see some of the best players in the world competing in one of my all-time favorite games! And given how much TFT has changed over the years, I'm waiting for this Fates Championship as excited as Lunar Revel Choncc's dance!
