Riot Games has announced a new competitive circuit for Teamfight Tactics (TFT), known as Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends: Gizmos and Gadgets.

Taking place from November 2021 to March 2022, and operated by GGTech Entertainment, players from the EMEA region will fight it out for a share of a €43,000 prize pool. 

There will be four qualification spots on the line for the TFT World Championship, the premier tournament in the League of Legends team-building auto-battler PVP strategy game.

Based on the new TFT Gizmos and Gadgets Set, announced last week, the competition will allow players to earn points and qualify for the EMEA Finals through ranked matches in-game or Golden Spatula Cups.

Furthermore, local tournaments will 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.

There are more info on these tournaments here:

  • 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 for the four spots at the TFT World Championship

All the TFT action will be covered in English on the official TeamfightTactics Twitch channel.

More information on the tournament, broadcast and how to participate will be published on the official tournament website at

Teamfight Tactics was first announced back in the summer of 2019 inspired by Dota Auto Chess.

There are some good UK players in TFT – earlier this year UK TFT player Lallana finished fourth in the TFT Fates Championship.

Twitch has also held some Twitch Rivals tournaments in TFT, including having Team RossBoomsocks in the Twitch Rivals Summer Rumble.
