Schedule and format
The Rise of the Elements Invitational is a two-day event that runs from Oct. 30 to 31.
Day one of the competition begins at 11am CT. Two groups of eight players will square off in five matches, earning points based on where they place. There will also be alternate win conditions that grant extra points when specific challenges are completed. This will allow competitors to “show off more strategy and variety in their playstyles,” according to Riot. The top-four players from each group will advance to day two.
Day two, taking place on Halloween, also begins at 11am CT. The final eight players will play indefinitely until one contestant racks up three wins.
The Rise of the Elements Invitational winner will earn $15,000 and a custom TFT jacket with a “special lining that memorializes their most loyal of followers,” according to Riot. Players who make it to day two will earn $10,750 each, and players who don’t make it out of the first day of the competition will still earn $7,500 each.
