The infamous Teamfight Tactics Mortdog Madness four-vs-four tournament returns in Neon Nights during the “for fun” patch, showcasing four European teams against four North American teams.
Taking place on May 14 and 15, the Neon Nights Mortdog Madness tournament contained a total of 32 EMEA and NA players. Each region brought four teams, led by a team captain, for a total of eight teams.
