EAs are not allowed
No taking advantage of unrealistic fills in the demo environment
The competition starts on the first of the month and ends on the last day of the month
For a complete look at all our competition rules, please see our competition rules article.
If you're participating in our monthly competition, it's important to remain active for longer than 14 days. Otherwise, your account will become expired, and disqualified from the competition. When this happens, you won't be able to take part in the current competition – but the good news is you can definitely participate in the following month's competition.
How do I know if I'm in danger of being disqualified?
If your account is inactive for more than 14 days, you will be at risk of being disqualified from the competition. To avoid this, make sure you are engaging with the competition on a regular basis.
What if I already became disqualified?
If your account is already expired and disqualified, don't worry! You can still join the following month's competition. Please do not contact TFT Support if you are disqualified as this decision is final and irreversible.
Can I re-join the current competition?
Unfortunately, you cannot re-join the current competition if your account is expired and disqualified. We recommend you take this opportunity to explore the competition and prepare to join the next competition in the following month.
Each month, a new competition begins and lasts the entirety of the month and can be accessed through the Competitions page of our Trade Hub. Then click the Register button for the next eligible competition.
Claiming Your Prize as a Competition Winner
