The final two spots at the Teamfight Tactics Dragonlands Championship are about to be determined. Two players from each of the four western regions will battle against each other to see who will join the 30 other players at this season’s world championship. Here is everything you need to know about the format, who is playing and how to watch.
The TFT Last Chance Qualifier Format
What is LCQ? The Last Chance Qualifier is bringing eight of the best players in LATAM, Brazil, North America, and EMEA one last opportunity to qualify for the TFT Dragonlands Championship.

The format for this event is very simple; the eight qualified players will be put into a single lobby to play a six-game series. At the end of each game, points will be distributed to each player based on their individual placement. The point structure is standard as it will award eight points for a first-place finish, seven points for a second-place finish and so on. At the end of the six-game series, the two players with the most accumulative points will move on to the TFT Dragonlands Championship. The other six will be eliminated.

At each regional final, the two highest performing players that did not automatically qualify for the TFT Dragonlands Championship have qualified for this Last Chance Qualifier. As a result, there are several high-profile players in attendance.
Representing North America is Team Liquid’s Alex “Kurumx” Tompkins, last year’s NA TFT Fates champion; he will be looking to qualify for his second-ever championship. The other player from NA is Kevin “Prestivent” Zou who is looking to qualify for his first world championship.
From the Europe, Middle East and Africa region are Team Vitality’s very own Fabian “Salvyyy” Reichmann who is one of the most prominent players to never qualify for a world championship despite continuously being ranked number one on the EU West ladder and has his best opportunity to qualify for his first world championship ever. The other EMEA player at this LCQ is Mohamed “Briks” Achraf Brik who is looking to qualify for his first-ever world championship.
From Brazil comes the pair of Lucas “eusouolucas” Damaso and Luis Gustavo “Toddy” Hüttl; eusouolucas is coming off back-to-back world championship appearances while Toddy is fighting for his first.
And finally, there’s Latin America, bringing two relative unknowns in “TexSummers” and “JosueDeleted;” these two are expected to be the dark horses.
