Teamfight Tactics patch 9.14 change list

The first major TFT patch is here

Riot Games

It’s the first official patch for Teamfight Tactics. Riot is adding quite a bit to the mode, including a new character, the ranked mode, a revamp to the item system, an attack speed rework, a DPS meter, and individual balance changes.

The studio also announced that it’ll patch TFT every week instead of every two. One of the weekly patches will focus on new content and features while the other will focus on balance changes.

At the top of the notes, Riot gave some context on why they’re changing what they’re changing in this patch. The focus is on under powered three-cost champions. The studio buffed some of these characters to make sure they’re viable. Four-cost champions are seeing nerfs, as they were a bit too strong regardless of synergies. (Lookin’ at you, Draven.)

Here are all the changes coming to Teamfight Tactics this week. If you’re just looking for a quick rundown of the patch, check out our five things you need to know here.

New

Riot Games

Twisted Fate

Systems

Attack Speed

  • We’ve changed all champions’ attack speed ratios so that attack speed bonuses are now calculated based on a percent of the champion’s base attack speed. In short, champions with lower base attack speeds will receive less benefit from attack speed items. Certain champions and attack speed granting items have been adjusted in this patch to compensate.
