TeamFight Tactics is have a fun July 4 tournament, hosted by Pokimane. The game, which was pushed through to catch up to its older sister, what has become DOTA Underlords, has taken the gaming scene by storm. TFT will frustrate players with its RNG but will provide unparalleled euphoria when hitting the 3rd Draven, Swain, Pyke, or any other overpowered champion to complete a composition. All of the sudden, 40-minutes will flash by, or, 10-minutes of failure will suddenly come crashing down and queuing up for another game will be the only option.
Pokimane has done everyone in the Esports scene a great service by hosting this 4th of July TFT tournament. Play it while watching it on another monitor or just watch it with family and friends on this American holiday. Either way, it’ll be a great time. Below is a brief write up of each of the participants within the tournament.
