London, UK – June 20, 2022 – Riot Games, in collaboration with Promod Esports, today announced “Northern Legends”, a competitive community hub dedicated to Teamfight Tactics within Northern Europe*. With a newly launched Discord server, Northern Legends will encourage local TFT players to come together to discuss, play and compete and will be part of the TFT Regional Competition (TRCs) structure, giving talented members the chance to qualify into Rising Legends Superbrawl.

About Teamfight Tactics
Teamfight Tactics (or “TFT”) is an eight person free-for-all strategy game where players combine League of Legends (LoL) champions and items in different formations to defeat the seven other players in a match. As the leading game in the auto battler genre, players tactically place an army of characters on a grid-shaped game board for a last-player-standing automated battle. Since launching in 2019, TFT has emerged as the top contender in the genre by providing a fun and deep chess-like gameplay experience for all types of players on multiple platforms.
