The tournament offered a $15,000 prize pool, and Pokimane was joined by League of Legends casters Mark ‘MarkZ’ Zimmerman and Sam ‘Kobe’ Hartman-Kenzler to commentate the competition.
Sixteen of the top Teamfight Tactics players and streamers took part, including the likes of Hafu, who was the top-ranked player during the PBE, former TSM League of Legends pro Dyrus, and Forsen.
The tournament began with the sixteen players being separated into two groups with a random team generator, after which the top four players from each game advanced to a “winner’s match”, while the bottom four from each went into the “loser’s match”.
The tournament featured a variety of dramatic moments, including an incredible 1-vs-7 clutch by Reckful’s Ashe that demonstrated the power of strong items and smart positioning combined with a bit of luck.
The strategic nature of Teamfight Tactics seems to lend itself well to skilled Hearthstone players, with the top four finishers all known for their talent in Blizzard’s card game.
In the end, it was Dog, a professional Hearthstone player for Team Liquid, who took the victory, winning the final map with an incredible come-back against Disguised Toast after pulling back a 69-health deficit.
In the end, Dog’s composition, which was carried by a powerful Karthus-Draven combination, proved too strong for Disguised Toast, who couldn’t find a line-up capable of beating Dog’s squad.
While no official final standings were revealed during the broadcast, Hafu revealed the results on Twitter.
