How to play Teamfight Tactics: our guide to LoL’s spin on Auto Chess




How to play Teamfight Tactics? Riot’s League of Legends is the latest MOBA game to get a Dota Auto Chess spinoff, and you can download it now. However, it is still early in its life cycle and new modes are coming out. So expect quick and rapid changes in the meta.

If you’re a League of Legends fan but new to the autobattle genre, it might feel a bit confusing at first. Teamfight Tactics pits you against seven other players, though you’ll only face one at a time. At the start of each round, you’ll choose a League of Legends champion from a pool of five that rotates each round. You will place these champions on your side of the board to fight your opponent. At the start of the round, either your champion will teleport to an enemy’s board, or their champion will come to yours. After that, the champions will face each other.

If you win the match, which depends on how your champion’s stats match your opponent’s champion, you’ll deal damage to your opponent’s Little Legend. Each Little Legend has 100 health, and it’s over for you if yours hits zero. Sounds like your kind of thing? Read on to find out how to play Teamfight Tactics.

Even if you had an account, players reported wait times of up to four hours.
