League of Legends Patch 9.14 is already looking exciting for Teamfight Tactics!
Following the massive launch of Teamfight Tactics, Riot Games has already given an update to what will be coming to the League of Legends-based Auto Battler. These include balancing, a new champion, and more information in the UI, and more. All of which are set to arrive in Patch 9.14.
Some of the balancing that they mentioned includes adjustments to Garen, Yasuo, Kennen, Morellonomicon, the drop chances of all units, and a few changes to item RNG. While they did not actually detail what the adjustments will be, it is nice to see that they’re already keeping an eye on things.
Long announced is the arrival of the first season of Ranked which they’re calling “Beta Season”. Riot Games has clarified that ranking up doesn’t necessarily require winning every game. Instead, players will just have to place in Top 4 to move up in rank.
The first new champion will arrive in Patch 9.14. That being Twisted Fate. The card-wielding champion is listed as a Pirate and a Sorcerer giving more variety to both origin and class, respectively. It will be interesting to see which of his abilities has been adapted to the Teamfight Tactics.
If we were to take a guess, Stacked Deck seems to be the easiest to add. Stacked Deck in the Rift increases his attacks speed and deals bonus magic damage every fourth attack. But Wild Cards seems more likely as a Sorcerer. With Wild Cards, he throws three cards in a cone, which just seems like Graves’ auto attacks.
One big change is more of a quality of life change. This is a more detailed view to the UI. This includes damage meters, stat panels for units, streak indicator, and item previews from the inventory, to name a few. Damage meters and stat panels are the biggest addition that truly excites us. When this is added, we can finally see the base stats of the different units and actually see how much damage is actually being done in a fight.
This looks like only just the beginning for Riot and making changes to Teamfight Tactics. It already looks promising as it is.
