Making interest in Teamfight Tactics is the most important part of the early game. You’ll need to maximise the amount of gold that you make each round and interest is the most reliable way of doing so. For every 10 gold in your coin purse, you’ll make an extra gold piece when the coin rewards are dished out to each player at the end of the round. I’ve circled the above image with the red one indicating your own interest, which is shown in the form of shields. Opposing players also show their interest on the right-hand side, which is the area circled in yellow. This stacks and accumulates in the following pattern:
- 10 gold in coin purse: 1 gold rewarded
- 20 gold in coin purse: 2 gold rewarded
- 30 gold in coin purse: 3 gold rewarded
- 40 gold in coin purse: 4 gold rewarded
- 50+ gold in coin purse: 5 gold rewarded
The sweet spot is 50 gold and except for extreme circumstances where you really need to catch up with your champions, you’ll want to always be above 50 gold before going into the combat-based phase of any round. Treat any gold that you make in the early-mid game after this point as your wallet and don’t spend a penny of it on rerolls for the optimal strategy.
