What we know so far..
Riot teases League of Legends players that Teamfight Tactics might become a permanent addition to the game if successful. The game mode’s success rate will be based on how all players on the Public Beta Environment perceive it upon its full release.
Teamfight Tactics is expected to be played on in-game boards with hexagonal spaces. The board for each game is divided into two equal halves—representing the attacking side and defending side. For every match, there will be multiple rounds and matches; in fact, it can last as many rounds as it takes to settle the single winner of the battle. All competing players must be eliminated, and follows last man standing format.
The competing players are required to set up their game pieces on the defending side of the board and represent their team. Each player’s from one team attacks another player in the game each round. The battles are controlled by the game’s AI, and the matchups are based on how each player sets his/her team up. The side who has higher units or points remaining after a fight gets a chance to directly inflict damage to the other team’s Little Legend, a character with 100 total health each player controls and protects.
At the conclusion of each round, all players receive different amounts of gold as a reward, which is based on whether they win or lose the fight.
