Bugged Teamfight Tactics mission is almost impossible to complete

An apparently bugged mission in League of Legends Teamfight Tactics is almost impossible to complete.

Teamfight Tactics missions award points for the TFT Beta Pass, which can be levelled up to unlock a series of cosmetic rewards for the game. Unfortunately for those hoping to get the most from their Beta Pass, however, it seems one of the missions is almost impossible to complete.

The mission states that players must “Reach Level 6 by the second Shared Draft (Round 11)”, but this itself is not entirely correct – the second shared draft actually occurs four rounds earlier, in round seven.

It seems this is the round that is actually considered for the mission, and this is where the problem lies, because hitting level six by round seven is mathematically almost impossible, as u/TFT6by11 has calculated.

Even if you go on a win streak for the first few rounds and play the economy perfectly, securing as much interest on you bank as possible, you will end up at best two gold short of the amount that you need in order to purchase enough experience to hit level six in time.

Riot GamesTeamfight Tactics is Riot Games’ take on the autobattler genre.

There is a method that makes getting enough gold possible, but it requires an incredible amount of luck – collecting enough Pirates to earn the bonus gold they offer. If you have three Pirates on the field, you can earn up to four additional gold at the end of combat, but the probability of pulling off that composition so early in the game is extremely low.

To begin with, you must grab a Pyke from the very first shared draft carousel, which isn’t impossible but certainly can’t be guaranteed every game. Then, add a Graves – as a tier one champion, there’s a fairly decent chance he’ll show up in the early rounds.

Completing the set is the tricky bit, however, because now you need a Gangplank. Being a tier three champion, Gangplank won’t show up at all for the first few rounds, and even after that your chances of having him turn up in your show are extremely low, less than two percent within the time that you need to acquire him.

Riot GamesThe mission is only possible if you collect enough Pirates – and even then you’re still relying on more luck.

Assuming you get extremely lucky and manage to pull off the Pirate composition, there’s still a chance you may not be able to complete the mission. The Pirate trait offers a maximum of four bonus gold after combat, but it might be less – and if it is, you won’t have enough.

Considering the ridiculously low chance of completing this mission even if you do everything perfectly, it seems likely that this is actually an error, and fans hoping to secure as many TFT Beta Pass points as possible will be hoping Riot fix it as soon as possible.

Danish esports organization Astralis must pay a €5,000 fine, and must fulfill new requirements, Riot Games has ruled after an investigation into the team’s missing salary payments to players, and the actions of the team’s general manager.

LEC Commissioner Maximillian Peter Schmidt said that “multiple Astralis Team Members had reached out to the League reporting missing salary payments as well as conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager by the interim Astralis General Manager.”

The LEC investigation found that the missing salary payments were “tied to the specifics of the Danish jurisdiction and human error.”

“Astralis was fully cooperative and swiftly resolved the matter,” the ruling continues. “The League confirmed all missing payments have now been received by the Team Members.”

Astralis previously played under the Origen brand in the LEC, until rebranding in September.

However, the investigation also found that “the Astralis GM exhibited conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager including the misrepresentation of certain contract terms with the Team Members and a singular instance of verbal misconduct.”

The GM in question is not named. Astralis’s former GM, Martin ‘Deficio’ Lynge, who was there when the team went by Origen in the LEC, left at the same time as the rebranding was announced, back in September.

In addition to the €5,000 fine, Astralis must now meet four extra requirements as an organization in the LEC:

  • Astralis is required to establish and communicate a direct avenue which Team Members can use to report potential grievances towards the Astralis ownership group.
  • Astralis is required to establish an on-boarding program for their Team Members including an outline of the above as well as an overview of Danish vacation pay and tax/payment/EasyID requirements.
  • The League will schedule check-in calls with all Team Members in the 2021 Season to ensure the above has been executed.
  • Astralis and their General Manager will be officially warned for conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager as we consider the LEC organizations responsible for the actions of their employees.

At the time of writing, Astralis has not commented publicly on the LEC’s ruling.

The organization is best known for its CS:GO team, and rebranded their FIFA and LoL teams to unify the brand under the Astralis banner.
