In the course of the regular seasonIn this competition, players compete over 5 days, spread over 3 weeks, and are awarded points according to their ranking at the end of each game. They play 4 games per competition day, which means that each player plays 20 games. The tournament is divided into two lobbies of 8 players.

The distribution of points is as follows:

I'm too good at TFT too, how do I participate?
In parallel to the Hex League, Riot Games wanted to set up another competition: The Open Tour France. This tournament aims to highlighting talent of the French Teamfight Tactitcs community. It is open to any player ranked at least diamond 3 on TFT (be careful, you have to play on a Western European server to participate!)
The Open Tour is in fact a springboard for the Hex League. The top 4 talents of this secondary competition will face the bottom 4 of the Hex League, during a promotion-relegation tournament. This last one will be played in 5 rounds only. The Top 4 will move up to the next level in the second split.
