An Unexpected Turn for a Teamfight Tactics Streamer
An unexpected turn of events left a Teamfight Tactics streamer speechless on the gaming platform. Their high-level character, a 3-star 5-cost Bel’Veth unit, failed to secure a victory, resulting in a surprising second-place finish.
What is Teamfight Tactics?
For the uninitiated, Teamfight Tactics is Riot’s incredibly popular auto-chess game. To win, players must strategically create their team, combining various traits and synergies to strengthen their army. Another strategy involves acquiring and leveling up powerful 5-cost units - these strong characters can often tip the scales to victory, but they are riskier to play, as players must reach levels 7, 8, or 9 to obtain them.
The Streamer's Advantage
The streamer known as TFToddy found himself in this advantageous position. He was at level 9 and had acquired a 3-star Bel’Veth - a feat that often results in an immediate win. Only three players were left in the game, leaving TFToddy confident he would win and rise in the ranking.
The Unexpected Outcome
However, the critical match-up did not go as planned. Despite the supposed advantage of his 3-star Bel’Veth, her ability was not enough to wipe out the enemy board, owned by a player using a Gunner Zaun strategy with a 2-star Senna, Gunner Urgot, and more. The Bel’Veth unexpectedly struggled against the opposing Zaun board and fell before taking down key enemy characters.
The shocking second-place finish caused TFToddy’s initial smile of confidence to transform into a dumbfounded silence as he processed the surprising outcome.
