How Can A Player From NA Qualify?

As seen in the diagram above, 2 players from NA will inevitably be invited to the TFT Galaxies Championship. To determine those 2 players, a 16 player NA final will be played in mid-august. The article states there will be 2 methods for qualification: Ladder snapshots and “Organized Play”. 

  • Ladder Snapshots: Starting in May and ending in July, weekly snapshots will be taken of the ladder and players will be awarded points based on their ladder position. The top 10 point accumulators will be invited to the NA Final.
  • “Organized Play”: Riot will be organizing a circuit of online tournaments where players will fight for 2 additional spots in the NA final. The 4 remaining spots will be distributed via partner qualification events taking place in June and July. No concrete details on the organized play have been released as of yet.

When will the TFT Galaxies Championship take place?

The Teamfight Tactics Galaxies Championship will take place following the conclusion of Set 3. If the NA final is slated to be in Mid august, I believe we can expect the Teamfight Tactics Galaxies Championship to be maybe 2-4 weeks after the conclusion of that event, meaning a potential early-mid September start.
