Teamfight Tactics' popularity on Twitch didn't go unnoticed by the platform which prompted another round of Twitch Rivals, a tournament that happens over various games, features some of the biggest streamers and a chunky prize pool.

Auto Chess from Drodo, the team that came up with the autobattler idea already has a tournament waiting to happen with a $1 million prize pool but Dota Underlords and Teamfight Tactics are well on their way of eclipsing Drodo's creation.

Teamfight Tactics is now the second autobattler to get a tournament, albeit not from the developer Riot Games but rather the livestreaming platform Twitch.tv.

The prize pool will be much lower which is not odd since this is a third party tournament. As announced, it will be $125,000 and will feature 64 invited streamers.

They will be divided into two groups of 32 with eight top players from each group advancing to the next day. The remaining 16 players will duke it out until champions for both EU and NA are decided.

Twitch Rivals' first round will kick off on 17 July 2019 at 9:00 AM PDT / 6:00 PM CEST. Group two will start on the same day at 1:45 PM PDT / 10:45 CEST and the stream will end there for the day.

The tournament will continue the next day, on Thursday, 18 July 2019 with the global finals round at 9:00 AM PDT / 6:00 PM CEST.

Fans can watch the stream on the official Twitch Rivals channel or on each participating streamer's channel if they have a favourite.

Twitch Rivals' official website has separate results for EU and NA so players can track each region's performance and see which streamers are going to go through to the next round and eventually win finals. 

There is no mention of which streamers will participate and Twitch will presumably announce the names later on in the days leading up to the tournament. You can check all the available details on Twitch Rivals website .
