Northern Legends TFT Competitive Hub Launched by Riot

Riot Games is launching Northern Legends, a full competitive hub for Teamfight Tactics in Northern Europe. This new organization is going to help foster greater participation in esports in the region. This should boost the profile of Northern Europe in the game and help players develop their skills.

This move goes along with the Rising Legends expansion as contributing quite a bit to the growth of esports for the game. This is how it’s going to work and what it means for TFT esports expanding.

Northern Legends is going to be a competitive hub for Teamfight Tactics launching specifically for Northern Europe. This is going to be a collaboration with Riot Games and the esports org Promod Esports. The hub will have the weight of both organizations behind it. This will exist alongside the Rising Legends, catering specifically to this region.

The Northern Legends Hub is going to be centered around a regional discord server. This will be a base for discussion for players, but it’s more than that. There will also be tournaments held regularly. These will help players improve by providing esports-focused lobbies and events. It should help players develop a more dedicated competitive community in Northern Europe. A dedicated weekly event will help the players here improve their competitive skills.

The weekly tournaments won’t just help players level up though. They are also going to be running as qualifiers for bigger events. Players will have the chance to qualify in three invite slots for the TFT Set Seven EMEA Superbrawl. This tournament is due to take place in early September, so players don’t have the longest time to get accustomed to the new layout of things.

Northern Legends Tournaments and Participants

The Northern Legends program is going to be relatively open, with most players have the chance to prove their skills and enter bigger tournaments. They will be running weekly for Set Seven Dragonlands, kicking off June 22nd.

The tournaments and Discord are open to players in Northern Europe. This is specifically which places qualify:

  • Ascension and Tristan da Cunha
  • Aland Islands
  • British Indian Ocean Territory
  • British Virgin Islands
  • Bouvet Island
  • Denmark
  • Gibraltar
  • Guernsey
  • Faroe Islands
  • Finland
  • Jay Mayen
  • Jersey
  • Iceland
  • Isle of Man
  • Malta
  • Norway
  • Republic of Ireland
  • Saint Helena
  • South Africa
  • Svalbard
  • Sweden
  • UK

Getting to the Superbrawl

That’s everywhere that’s eligible for the Northern Legends program. How do players get from the Discord through to the Superbrawl tournament though? All players have a few things they need to do. The beginning is to prove residency to get into the Superbrawl Qualifiers. From there they can take part in these regular tournaments. We don’t know which of these are going to be the qualifiers for Superbrawl just yet, but taking part in most gives players a chance to get accustomed to the level of competition going on here.

That’s how the Northern Legends is going to be running. While the end goal for most is probably going to be qualification in the Superbrawl, this should help players at all tiers of the game. Regular tournaments in Northern Legends will help players develop their skills and give something more for fans to watch.
