Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.15 brings big nerfs to demons, void rework
Teamfight Tactics is getting shaken up in Patch 9.15.
Patch 9.14 changed the meta in the Summoner’s Rift and Patch 9.15 will do the same in Teamfight Tactics.
Starting with class breakpoints, Brawlers can now stack up to six units. This change hit the PBE and stood out because there are only five Brawlers in the game. It is impossible to create another Brawler using the spatula, which likely means that Riot Games will introduce a new Brawler into the mix soon.
Half of the classes are receiving significant changes in Patch 9.15. The Demons that are so prevalent in Patch 9.14 were targeted in Patch 9.15, with their mana burn chance being reduced considerably.
Ninjas as a class are getting a buff but two units are getting nerfed. Akali and Kennen both saw their ability damage reduced, while Shen and Zed enjoyed small boosts.
In terms of more straightforward improvements, Assassins will get a small buff in Patch 9.15 after taking some hard nerfs. Guardians and Knights are tankier in this update. Elementalists and Nobles will deal more damage. Finally, Pirates are going back to their pre-nerf state.
Twisted Fate, the last champion introduced in Teamfight Tactics is getting a buff. The original iteration of the unit was on the weaker side with Riot remedying this by increasing his damage and cast speed.
The champions from the Void are receiving a serious overhaul. These units have long been unviable, so Riot Games reimagined the entire class. The units no longer ignore armor, and now deal true damage instead. Alongside this, Kassadin, Khazix, Rek’Sai, and Cho’Gath are getting more damage and attack speed.
The Locket has been redesigned, so players that used to stack this item and abuse it will now be left disappointed. The shield was increased from 200 HP to 250 HP but the effect only lasts four seconds.
The full TFT patch notes can be found on the official League of Legends website.
