These are the winners from our November TFT Invitational tournament. We asked our three finalists about their experience during the circuit, and here were their responses:
First Place – oFwano
Name: Francis “oFwano” Wan
Last season’s best: Challenger 900lp
Favourite Synergies: Set 1 Rangers/Demon/Sorcs , Set 2 Summoners
Thoughts on the new season of TFT so far: I’ve been really enjoying the new set so far. Although the meta right now feels like a race to Zed and Singed, right now the transition towards finding them is different each game. Compared to Set 1, there are also a lot more viable comps that you head towards depending on your items at the beginning of the game. Although units like Singed and Zed are obviously overpowered, the experience so far has been great.
