On July 1, it was announced by August Browning, Senior Champ designer with LoL and TFT, via Twitter that some patch changes would be coming to TFT. Here is the announcement.
This is a particularly interesting patch, giving buffs to several different champs and changing the drop rate frequencies of different tiers of champs throughout the game. Here’s a quick breakdown of how players may begin to optimize this new change.
Build Fast or Sell
In the new system, tier 2 and tier 3 champions begin dropping more frequently early on in stages 2, 3 and 4. This means that if players want to maximize tier 1 champs, they need to do so quickly. Specifically, the safest bet is to get those tier 1 champs to level 2 or 3 prior to round 4, or sell them if unable.
Here is the new drop rate chart, followed by the old one for comparison:
More Buffs Than Nerfs
In the new update, several heroes received fairly substantial buffs in mana cost reduction and attack speed. Of those listed, the changes to Kennen, Poppy, and Veigar seem to be the most substantial, receiving buffs in multiple aspects of their kits.
Also, as a whole, keep an eye on Demons and their viability in the game. Several demons received buffs and the class as a whole is a definite priority of this patch.
The complete changes can be seen below:
