10. The foundation of the Hyper Roll Strategy

Check out the Hyper Roll Strategy:

Starts at 6:20

In the early part of 2020, a new strategy came up in the TFT community where players took advantage of the game’s RNG mechanics. The hyper roll was all about rerolling in the early game in an aggressive way that gave players a high chance to obtain three-star champions as early as possible, which gave players a huge advantage over their opponents. This strategy became popular, and people took advantage of it to climb the rank ladder in TFT.

The hyper roll strategy was a game changer in TFT history as players used to focus more on saving up gold, earning interest, and placing their champions in the right position, but when the hyper roll strategy came out, players noticed that more aggressive methods could be more successful under some conditions. It has been nerfed, but it’s still a popular and effective way to play in TFT in some games.

In March 2020, Riot Games released the new set, which was called Galaxies, and just like every other set, it introduced new champions, items, and strategies and tactics, but this set had a unique point where it allowed players to play on different galaxies, each of which had its own rules and challenges: champions could drop gold, players could receive free spatulas, selling a champion breaks the item, and so on. The introduction of Galaxies breathed new life into TFT, which made all the players engage with the new tactics and play with excitement.

Galaxies was a critical moment in TFT history as it introduced a new level of complexity to the game. Players didn’t only focus on economy and positioning; they also had to adapt to the game's changes and learn each galaxy's rules and challenges, which required players to enhance their strategies and get creative.


8. The infamous 8th-place finish

During the 2020 TFT Galaxy Championship, a player called KittingIsHard suddenly became the center of attention for all the wrong reasons that could happen. As a player who was participating in the championship, he was expected to do well, but after a series of unfortunate events, KittingIsHard couldn’t manage to get out of the low levels and he finished in the 8th place, which was seen by many TFT players as a major disappointment. However, despite his performance and the outcome, KittingIsHards became an internet meme, which spread real quick and created a creativity wave in the TFT community.

This moment in TFT history kept a reminder in every player's head that even the best players can have bad days, as KittingIsHard was one of the best TFT players in the world at the time, but he didn’t manage to overcome factors that influenced his performance. But this moment also showed that the TFT community is creative and that they could turn his disappointment into a moment of humor, inspiration, and motivation.
