Free TFT Tournaments

These free TFT tournaments do not have rank restrictions or entry requirements and are 100% free to join. I’ve added a new section for free tournaments that have restrictions such as rank and location. There is also a third section for irregular, one-off, and other miscellaneous tournaments.

Some of the Discord servers host additional events such as Rageblade’s TFT seasons and CCL’s 4v4 tournaments, so be sure to check them out! Also, there is a general overview of the tournament experience at the bottom of this page.

How Does a Free TFT Tournament Work?

After you’ve joined the tournament’s Discord server, you can check out some of their channels to learn about the specific rules and tournament format. Some tournaments such as Nicecactus are run through the website and do not use a Discord server.

Tournaments generally follow this format:

  1. The Check-in
    • Write your in-game name in the #check-in channel (usually an hour before the tournament starting time).
  2. The Check-in closes and lobbies are generated
    • Open your game client now! If there is a lobby leader, wait for them to invite you. If there is no lobby leader, wait for someone to invite you or create the lobby yourself.
    • Once everyone is ready, the games begin!
  3. After the first game
    • If you’ve won your lobby, you should post a screenshot of the result in the #match-report channel.
    • Wait for the next game (if there is one).

General tips and info:

  • You will need to create an account on the server where the tournament is being played.
  • Leaving a tournament mid-way through could result in a ban from future tournaments. Be sure to PM the tournament moderator with your reasoning if you really must exit early.
  • Tournaments are often frequented by Challenger and Grandmaster players. This is a great chance to try to defeat them! Spoiler alert, you probably won’t, but it will be a good learning experience.
  • Lobbies are randomly generated.
  • Some tournaments may require you to fill out an additional form.

I’ve really enjoying playing in these community-run tournaments over the past few months, and I hope you will too.

If you run any free tournament and would like to see it added here, please let me know in the comments section.
