The launch of TFT Set 11 brought numerous changes to the esports scene. Former NA Cup tournaments have been transformed into Tactician’s Cups and Trials featuring the NA, BR, and LATAM regions. Much of the process has remained the same, with Trials taking over for the first weekend of play and the Tactician’s Cup functioning like the second weekend. But Riot will no longer cover the pan-regional Americas Tactician’s Cup tournaments.

Dan “Frodan” Chou is helping shoulder the responsibility of bringing coverage to NA fans and beyond through his Twitch and YouTube channels. Other NA creators streaming the tournament are Aegis, Casanova, Kai, and Denipon.

Tactician’s Trials for the first Tactician Cup will run from April 20 to 22, featuring 512 players from the three regions in the Americas pan-region. The official first Tactician’s Cup will run from April 26 to 28. The first APAC Tactician’s Cup and the first EMEA Golden Spatula Cup are also taking place from April 26 to 28.  

Content creators from BR and LATAM will also be streaming the first TFT Set 11 Tactician’s Cup.
