Here are the 16 NA players competing for Reckoning Worlds seats at the Regional Finals:

Sept. 5, day two playoffs
Day two of the TFT NA Regional Finals consisted of six games total, with the top three scoring players earning an invite to Reckoning Worlds in October.

Robinsongz kept the fire going with another first-place finish during game two, running a Jax carry with a three-star Galio as a secondary carry. With back-to-back wins, Robinsongz sat atop the leaderboard with 20 points, followed by sètsuko at 13 and Delicious Milk at 11 points.
Playing Jax main carry with a few high-rolls and intense positioning, Robinsongz pulled out a third first in a row, practically securing a seat at TFT Reckoning Worlds. With three games left to play, Delicious Milk secured a much-needed first to separate from the rest of the lobby in total points. Close on his heels were sètsuko with 24 points and k3soju at 20.
Game five showcased a rare six Spellweaver build by Pockygom, but it was Robinsongz who claimed a fourth first-place running Nightbringer with three-star Yasuo, Sejuani, and Lee Sin. But Robinsongz wasn’t done, claiming a fifth victory in game six with a Kayle build. Claiming the other two TFT Reckoning Worlds spots was Delicious Milk with 36 points and SpencerTFT at 33 points.
