In a YouTube Developer Diary, Riot Games and the TFT team announced TFT Set 6. This new Set is bringing with it massive changes, specifically adding the Hextech Augments to the game. This new mechanic will certainly allow for the game to be played in a different way. Here is a look at the TFT Set 6.

This Set will be bringing with it quite a few new additions.
“In addition to the new setting and new champions, the next set of TFT will have a new mechanic. Throughout the course of a game, you will be offered Hextech Augments that provide varied and powerful effects for your team, and change the way you approach the game.
Some of them are direct army enhancements. For example: one gives all your ranged champions an additional 2 hexes of range; another gives every champ on your team that already has an item an additional 200 HP and 20 Attack Damage.
“Hyper Roll has been a success and will remain a part of the next set of Teamfight Tactics. The team will continue to make improvements to the mode as well.
The next set will also feature a Lab that’s focused on providing players a more meaningful way to play Teamfight Tactics with their friends, with the mode allowing them to work together as a two-person team.
In this partnered mode, which does not have a name yet, players queue up and work together to compete against 3 other teams. Each player will control their own board, but will have a shared health pool – so both players need to stay strong in order to survive.
This mode will launch shortly after the new set drops and will remain up and running for a few patches. After that, the team will take it offline and make a few adjustments, using feedback and their learnings to improve it. It will be relaunched again in a more complete form at a later date.”
Players will finally be able to buy new Little Legends individually but only with the newest ones. These ones are called Chibi Champions. These will be actual champions for the game but in a smaller, more anime-like form.
“Teamfight Tactics will be receiving its own currency later this year called TFT Coins. Players will be able to use TFT Coins on mobile when they launch, and then on PC in the first half of next year. For now, RP will continue to be usable on PC.”
Clearly, there are quite a few additions coming to TFT Set 6 and most of them are fulfilling what the players have been asking for. Others though may be a bit controversial. It will be interesting to see how players react to the TFT Coins and Hextech Augments. If these do well, they could be a major addition that stays or the Augments specifically will be gone with TFT Set 6.5.
