The Teamfight Tactics community is always looking for competitive action and Riot Games already announced one of the biggest TFT tournaments ever with the TFT Fates Championship. Here's everything you need to know!

Teamfight Tactics grew from an Auto Chess copy to a competitive sub-genre of League of Legends. The game is enjoying a lot of attention and updates are keeping it all fresh and changing. The only thing that's missing is big tournaments – or should we say "was missing".
