Teamfight Tactics is a new auto-battle mode for League of Legends. You'll recruit champions, create a team with synergies, equip them with items and then send them to fight an AI-controlled battle against another player. After each battle, you'll get more gold to hire new champions and ultimately only one player will remain standing. TFT is an eight-player FFA and each game lasts about thirty minutes if you make it to the end.
Developer: Riot Games
Platform: PC (mobile in the future)
Release Date: TBA (in open beta now through League of Legends client)
Teamfight Tactics has a ton of strategy underlying its basic features. In-depth strategy is still in its infancy, but generally people consider two strategies to be particularly effective early on: economy and reroll. Here's a brief guide courtesy of LoL celebrity Scarra:
Items and champions are your bread and butter in Teamfight Tactics and combining them is what separates the best from the rest. There are many resources across the net for these, but Scarra has also created some cheat sheets with decent visuals that can help out in a pinch while you're learning the game. These can be invaluable to new and experienced players as a reminder of what does what.
If anyone has any guides they think are particularly good, please post them and I'll add them in here. Here's what I've been using:
Riot's Official Guide - Great for beginners. Gives a fair overview of the mechanics.
Scarra's YouTube Guides - Also really great for beginners who are looking to up their game and do well.
