UK streamer Vicksy has taken first place in the $15,000 Twitch Rivals UK Teamfight Tactics (TFT) competition.
She beat seven other streamers to take the $4,000 top prize and break her tournament curse – in a game she’s only been playing for a few days!
Other streamers taking part (in order of final position) included Queene, Zizaran, Huzzygames, Rezonegames, Tweak, Kiandymundi and Alymew.
Vicksy led the pack by four points, reaching 30 points ahead of second-place Queene with 26. Vicksy saw success with Ocean/Mage comps in particular.
The prize breakdown is as follows:
- 1st: $4,000
- 2nd: $3,000
- 3rd: $2,400
- 4th: $1,800
- 5th: $1,400
- 6th: $1,000
- 7th: $800
- 8th: $600
Vicksy is a streamer that predominantly focuses on League of Legends and Dead by Daylight.
She is a Diamond/Master tier mid-laner that plays the likes of Zoe, Aurelion Sol, Viktor and Ahri among others, and has experience playing in UK tournaments in the past.
She is also a partnered streamer for UK-based organisation Excel Esports, who previously said they would like to build a female team around Vicksy.
She’s had some hard luck in past League of Legends competitions, including the Twitch Rivals streamer tournament from earlier this year, where team UK fell short.
