Esports organization, Team Liquid, will be hosting the first-ever Oceanic/North American regional final qualifying event. The Liquid Galaxy Qualifier will decide the first two players to qualify for the North America and Oceania regional finals.
The LGQ is an eight-week, open sign-up tournament which will see 256 players compete at each weekly event. The winner of each event will secure a seed in the final event. After eight-weeks, the eight weekly winners will fight it out at the Liquid Galaxy Final. The final will be live-streamed at twitch.tv/teamliquid. Also Twitch Front Page will be supporting the event. Finally, the top two players at the at the LGF will earn a spot at the OCENA regional finals where they will have a shot to qualify for the $200,000 Teamfight Tactics Global Championship.
Teamfight Tactics has been a massive success. Due to its success, the game has attracted over 80 million players worldwide. As a result, the game has caught the attention of some of the world’s biggest brands. Global Sandwich restaurant chain, Jersey Mike’s has signed on to be the official sponsor of the LGQ. Jeff Hemschoot, the Marketing Director at Jersey Mike’s, sees potential in Teamfight Tactics.
“Teamfight Tactics has quickly become one of the most popular strategy games, and Team Liquid has built one of the most passionate esports communities in the world. So when we heard about the Liquid Galaxy Qualifier, we knew we had to take part” Hemschoot said
Team Liquid entered the TFT scene way before the announcement of the LGQ. Currently, TL has four professional TFT players signed to their team. To combat a potential conflict of interest, Team Liquid players can play in the event but they cannot earn an invite to the OCENA regional finals from it.
The first leg of the LGQ will take place on May 16th and will feature a $1,000 prize pool. This will continue each weekend ending with the Liquid Galaxy Final on July 18th.
