Teamfight Tactics is an eight-person free-for-all strategy game where players combine League of Legends champions and items in different formations to defeat the seven other players in a match. Players tactically place an army of characters on a grid-shaped game board for a last-player-standing automated battle. Teamfight Tactics claims to have 80 million players globally.
