Riot Games finally announced the release for Teamfight Tactics for iOS and Andriod, the company’s first title in the mobile games market.

The company, known for the worldwide hit MOBA League of Legends, will let their fan base of over 100 million players dive into their auto battler on-the-go as a standalone game.

Teamfight Tactics will arrive to the App Store and Google Play on March 19 after the title’s initial and successful June 2019 launch on PC.

Riot Games
TFT will be Riot Games’s first mobile game.

Dax Andrus, Product Lead on TFT, worked to bring the full experience of the game to handheld devices: “Since launching TFT on PC just last year, we’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible response from players. Players have been asking us for more ways to play TFT, and we’re excited to share a mobile version that feels authentic to the PC experience while also keeping in mind the nuances and optimization features that mobile players love.”

The devs are going to do their best to bring the full “PC experience” to the mobile version by allowing full cross-play with TFT on PC.

This will let the entire 80 million player community stay connected with each other regardless of what platform they load up in.

More importantly, a lot of the features and upcoming content coming to TFT’s PC version will make its appearance on the mobile iteration upon release.

The next set of card packs called “Galaxies” will be available at launch, bringing new “space, galaxy, and star-themed LoL champions customization options, and Little Legends, player-controlled in-game avatars,” according to a press release.

Riot Games Co-Founder and Co-Chairman Marc Merrill hinted at more mobile releases in 2020: “Now, as League [of Legends] enters its second decade, we’re thrilled to bring an authentic, competitive TFT experience to mobile, the first of many multi-platform efforts players will see this year.”

Riot Games
Teamfight Tactics on mobile should play just like it does on PC.

A likely candidate would be Riot’s third title, Legends of Runeterra, a digital collectible card game that launched its open beta in late January.

Regardless, players won’t have to wait long to finally battle for the convergence on mobile devices when Teamfight Tactics releases later this month.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
