Riot Games Summer Rumble Event Overview

Riot Games will be sharing a link during the broadcast on Wednesday 24th August. The giveaway will be limited so fans are encouraged to visit the link and redeem as quick as possible.
Day one and two of the VALORANT and League of Legends competition use a double-round robin format. Teams will be split into two groups of five where they’ll play a round of best-of-one matches each day until they’ve played each team in their group twice. The teams sitting out during each round of the group stage will play a non-conference match against each other. While the non-conference matches will not count towards their final group position, the outcome of these games will be taken into consideration in the event of a tie.
At the end of day two, the four best-performing teams will progress to the Finals Bracket (Top Four), while the remaining six teams will drop to the Placement Bracket. The Finals Bracket (Top Four) will play out as a high-stakes battle to establish the best performing team in each game and bag as many Rumble Points as possible. Meanwhile, teams in the Placement Bracket will compete to determine final standings from 5th to 10th and snag some consolation Rumble Points to top up their country’s total.
For Teamfight Tactics, players will compete to earn Rating Points based on their finishing positions in five rotating lobbies. Each lobby will contain two players from each team. At the end of day one, the Rating Points earned by players on each team will be added together. The four teams with the most Rating Points will progress to the Finals Bracket (Top 4) while the bottom six teams will drop to the Placement Bracket.
On day two, points will reset and teams in the Finals Bracket (Top 4) will compete among themselves with players again earning points based on their individual finishing position over multiple games. At the end of the day, each player’s Rating Points will be added together to determine the final standings from 1st to 4th.
The Placement Bracket will play out in a similar fashion to determine the standings from 5th to 10th giving country teams a chance to snag some potentially important consolation Rumble Points.
