Invictus Gaming has entered the TFT: Reckoning arena by signing three new players to their international TFT Division. Daniel “DQA” Li, Hanyuan “Noobowl” Ye, and Andrew “Guubums” Cheung have joined the China based esports organization and will be competing under the iG banner.
These three players have been among the best players in North America throughout the history of TFT . All three are also in position to qualify for the TFT Reckoning Championship. The event will be the first ever live in person TFT World Championship.
Invictus Gaming Joins TFT Scene
The announcement was a surprising one, as Invictus Gaming has not had a real presence in the North American esports scene. But the decision came at a good time. Some of the game’s best players were left without a team heading into the second half of the TFT set five competitive season. Noobowl and Guubums in particular have already clinched spots to the North American Regional finals being held in September. Those two players earned their spots by placing in the top 10 of the ranked ladder snapshots. NoobOwl finished third overall and Guubums finished fourth.
DQA did not finish in the top 10, but brings World Championship experience to iG. He competed at last season’s TFT Fates Championship. At the TFT Fates Championship, DQA finished 9th barely missing out on top 8 after losing a tiebreaker. This season DQA finished 20th in the ranked ladder snapshots. However, he can still qualify for NA Regionals through the Set 5.5 snapshots. That race will kick off in a couple of weeks.
Even though Guubums has already locked up a spot at the NA Regional Championship, he will be competing in the Reckoning Mid-Set Finale which is a $20,000 TFT event that will showcase some of the regions best players as they fight for spots at the NA Regional Championships. This event will mark the first time iG makes their TFT debut. Spectators can catch the action live starting Thursday July 15.
