Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.14 notes

By Riot Beernana

Hey Tacticians, welcome to the first official Teamfight Tactics patch notes!

From now on, you can expect TFT patch notes almost every week. For those accustomed to League of Legends' schedule, note that TFT will be patching in a weekly cadence, split between the regularly scheduled League of Legends patch with larger changes and a B-side one on the second week of that patch limited to balance changes and emergent bugfixes. The format of the patch notes will be a little different in light of the weekly cadence.

This first official patch week we have a whole host of changes. First, Twisted Fate is warping in to the Convergence for all your piracy and spell-slinging needs. Then, if you're the competitive type, get ready to start climbing because the ranked Beta Season is coming and as they say, "RNG is a ladder." Finally, a minion or monster will now drop gold in the event that you do not get any items from a PvE round.

We made a boatload of balance changes and bugfixes, and amidst the chaos a few themes should emerge. Many tier 3 champions felt underpowered and not worth picking up given their price, so we're buffing a number of them to make them worth considering even at a single star. Conversely, many tier 4 champions have been nerfed as they were proving to be powerhouses sometimes even without the need for synergies or additional stars.

Got lost looking for League of Legends patch notes? Take this magical journey.

Systems

Attack Speed Changes

  • 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.
  • Champion Attack Speed Ratios: 1.0 ⇒ champion base attack speed

PvE Rounds

  • In the event that you do not get an item during a PvE round, one of the minions, monsters, or epic monsters will now drop gold instead.
  • Dragon and Elder Dragon no longer benefit from the Dragon Trait bonuses. All sorcery comps rejoice.

Ability Targeting

  • Abilities that target low health champions now determine "lowest health" by HP percentage instead of total HP

Shop

  • When you reroll your shop after leveling up from round XP, the shop is rolled at your new level instead of your old level

  • Added "Streak" indicator next to gold total. It displays your current streak (win or loss) and the rewards for maintaining streaks of different lengths
  • Added a combat recap so you can see how much damage each champion deals each round.
  • Added champion stats (attack damage, armor, magic resist etc) on their pop up inspect panel when you right click
