TFT Rising Legends Monsters Attack tournament gets an increased prize pool and new ways to qualify for 2023

TFT Rising Legends 2023

Riot Games has today announced the next big Teamfight Tactics tournament, TFT Rising Legends Monsters Attack, for players across EMEA.

It will get an increased prize pool, from €50,000 to €90,000, and changes to qualifying.

Teamfight Tactics Rising Legends Monsters Attack tournament structure

Rising Legends Monsters Attack will follow a similar structure to last year’s TFT Rising Legends Dragonlands, but with a few tweaks based on feedback.

The circuit will still be based on a point system, with the winners and the top-scoring players from the Golden Spatula Cups qualifying for the Rising Legends Finals. In this latest Monsters Attack set, Riot will welcome as many as 21 tacticians with the most points in Rising Legends finals. They will be joined by the eight players from the ranked ladder.

11 snapshots of the ranked ladder in each of the participating server regions (EUW, EUNE, TR, and RU) will be taken throughout the whole set and will grant ladder points to the top 100 players from each server region.

Golden Spatula Cups

As in the previous season, tacticians will be able to qualify for the Golden Spatula Cups through Open Qualifiers and Ladder Points.

Open Qualifiers will host 512 players with a minimum in-game rank of Diamond II, in a three-day tournament, with the top 32 players advancing to the Golden Spatula Cup. 

In the weeks leading up to a Golden Spatula Cup, the top Ladder Point earners in each of the regions will join those from the Open Qualifiers in qualifying for the tournament. The Ladder Points will be granted to qualifying players in each region after the ladder snapshot. The first snapshot will take place on January 10th at 23:59:59 UTC+2.

In terms of what else is new, TFT Regional Competitions (TRCs) are gaining significance. In set eight, Riot is introducing an additional way to qualify for GSCs. There will be 50 slots available for the best players from the regions to qualify through regional tournaments.

The TRC slot breakdown is as follows:

  • DACH: 7
  • France: 7
  • Eastern Europe: 7
  • Poland: 6
  • Turkey: 6
  • Rest of EMEA: 5
  • Spain: 4
  • Northern Europe: 4
  • MENA: 3
  • Italy: 3

TRC and Superbrawl

Tournaments sanctioned by Riot Games and run by local tournament organisers will feed players directly into the Golden Spatula Cups.

Superbrawl is going through huge changes too. The tournament will no longer be qualifying people for the EMEA finals. Riot says more details on the format and position of Superbrawl will come later.

Rising Legends finals

The season will culminate with the Rising Legends Finals, where the best 32 players from the GSCs, Ranked Ladder, and the regional qualifications will duke it out for the title of Rising Legends Champion, and the bragging rights of being the best TFT player in EMEA.

Just like in Dragonlands, the Finals will run for three days. More info on the format will be shared later.

The prize pool breakdown is as follows:
