Scheduled to take place from Oct. 1 to 4, the TFT Reckoning World Championship will feature four days of competitive play with a total of 20 tacticians earning a seat from eight regions. The competition will start at 4am CT on each of the four days and showcase one lobby per day. A main broadcast will stream via Twitch.
