Riot Games is continuing to evolve the competitive Teamfight Tactics North American esports scene through a partnership with Wisdom for Set Five and 5.5 Reckoning.
Unlike previous TFT sets and World Championship runs, NA players have a roadmap toward Reckoning Worlds at the start of Set Five. The Challenger Series, hosted by Giant Slayer TV, returns featuring four tournaments and invites to the Reckoning mid-set final. Weekly Leaderboard Snapshots will also return and two new tournaments have been added during the first half of the Set Five: Dawnbringer and Nightbringer Cup.
Reckoning Leaderboard Snapshot
The Leaderboard Snapshot is taken at 2:01am CT on Thursdays on a weekly basis, based on TFT ladder rankings. Players are given Leaderboard points based on their ladder rank each week, with the highest-ranked competitor earning 100 points and each player below earning one less point per rank. Players must complete 10 games per week to be eligible for Leaderboard points at the time of the Snapshot.
Competitors qualify to compete in the TFT Set Five Challenger Series tournaments via the previous week’s Leaderboard Snapshot. A total of 10 players from Set Five will qualify for the Regional Finals based on the Leaderboard points, along with two players from the Set 5.5 Leaderboard points.

Leaderboard Snapshots begin on May 12.
