Riot Games has released Set Three of Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies to the PBE, introducing 10 Origins, 13 Classes, and many new and reworked item combinations. To show off the new set in action, Riot has invited 16 streamers to express their tactical prowess and compete in the Teamfight Tactics Galaxies Showcase for $15,000 and a custom TFT Galaxies jacket.
While this is reminiscent of the Set Two Invitational, there are major differences in the format this time around. On day one, both groups played four games, with the winner of game four guaranteeing their spot for day two. The top-three point earners from placements advance as well.
The second day’s format was also changed this time around. The first competitor to finish in first place after attaining 18 points will secure the grand victory.
Group A standings
Shaunz, Li Luo, Sologesang, and Uthenera advance to day two of the Showcase to meet up with the qualified players from Group B.
Group B standings
Da 11, dogdog, becca, and Leko move on to day two of the Showcase to face off against the qualified players from Group A.
Qualified day two finalists
Day one highlights
Shaunz’s day two qualifying game
From Group A, Shaunz took game four to cement himself in the finals for day two.
Da 11’s day two qualifying game
From Group B, after a grueling final bout against dogdog, Da 11 won game four to solidify a spot in the finals for day two.
Mech Pilots drawn-out fight
Before Da 11’s game four victory, there was a hilarious fight after both Da 11’s and dogdog’s giant mech was dismantled, leaving the sole pilots to duke it out.
Although she’s eliminated from day two contention, Hafu’s Lucian unit put up an incredible fight in this clip, reminding us of Lucian’s antics during Set One.
With the finalists decided the remaining eight contestants began their day trying to make their mark and race to 18 points.
Within game one, dogdog was able to strike first blood with a sick Ekko carry build and get the first win for the day.
However, after securing the initial win, dogdog was unable to secure eight more points within the next two games. This gave Leko and Li Luo a chance to obtain 18 points during the next two games. During the third game, it came down to Leko, Li Luo, and dogdog as the last three standing in game three. With Leko and Li Luo on tournament match point dogdog was forced to play spoiler to save the tournament hopes for himself and everyone else in the lobby. Leko’s army was unable to defeat dogdog giving Li Luo the chance to secure the ultimate victory.
Ultimately, after a tense back and forth between dogdog and Li Luo, dogdog was slain by Li Luo who had two HP remaining. Granting him the win after achieving 18 points to earn first place for the entire tournament.
Here are the final standings for day 2:
