Riot Games is hyping up the release of the new Teamfight Tactics set, Gizmos and Gadgets.
As a part of this effort, it has announced the TFT PBE Clash, a pre-release event for content creators and competitive players alike. Riot is partnering with Wisdom media to bring this event to TFT fans.
Gizmos and Gadgets, the upcoming set, is focused on the Chemtech and Hextech themes that Riot’s leaning into with preseason changes and the Arcane series. This mad experimentation motif continues with the set. PBE Clash: TFT Gizmos will run from October 21 to October 24. This event will see a variety of TFT personalities taking to Riot’s public beta server, where the unreleased iterations of TFT and League of Legends are tested.
Riot has said it’s looking for highly skilled TFT veterans to join content creators for the testing event. In fact, Riot is looking for regular players to join the pool for the event. If you’ve reached Master, Grandmaster, or Challenger in TFT, throw your hat in the ring. There will be 16 slots for the largest TFT content creators, while 64 slots remain open for application.
On day one, all selected applicants will play three games, with the top four players from each round advancing without needing to play further. All of the players who advance then play in another three games, with the top four qualifying for the second day of play.
Day two continues the play-in stage, narrowing it down to eight qualified players by the end of the day. On the third day of play, the group stage begins. The 16 invited content creators will then join the tournament alongside the eight remaining players from the play-in stage. Players will play three games with rotating lobbies, the contestants with the top 16 scores across those games qualify for another three games. The top eight players from those games advance to the finals.
On day four, the top eight players will play five games. The top-scoring player will be crowned Innovator Supreme and take home the lion’s share of the prizes. You can catch the first two days on the participating players’ streams, and on the Teamfight Tactics Twitch channel.
