Boxbox Bootcamp returns for the release of Set 8.5!
Teamfight Tactics and variety streamer Boxbox partnered with Riot Games for a $20,000 prize pool competition at the start of the new Teamfight Tactics set.
Today marks the release of Teamfight Tactics Set 8.5. Along with its release, the Boxbox Bootcamp has begun. With a larger prize pool and updated format, here's everything you need to know about it.
Boxbox Bootcamp competition
Boxbox has selected over 60 streamers to compete in his Boxbox Bootcamp. These streamers have been split into two groups: Pro League and Casual League. According to Boxbox, Pro League consists of streamers known for their skill in TFT. In contrast, the Casual League consists of streamers who play TFT for fun.
Previous editions of Boxbox Bootcamp rewarded participants for reaching certain goals. However, in this edition, the streamers are fighting for survival. Competitors play the ranked North American ladder over the course of two weeks as well. Boxbox Bootcamp eliminates the lowest-ranked competitors at the end of each day, and only one winner gets to stand in both groups.
Competitors are required to stream at least half of their games and be rewarded in gifted subscriptions. You can find more details on the rules here.
Boxbox Bootcamp participants
Streamers from all over the globe applied to the revamped survivor-style competition. The Pro League features streamers and established professionals from North America (NA), Europe, (EU), Korea (KR), and Southeast Asia (SEA). They are battling it out on the NA server to see who can end the highest rank after two weeks. The Casual League is made up of mostly non-TFT streamers who don't play the game at a serious level, but still wanted to compete in Teamfight Tactics.
Here are the Pro League participants:
