Our Teamfight Tactics PBE Patch Notes page details what’s new with each PBE patch update, so you can keep up with all the latest changes coming to Teamfight Tactics.

It’s safe to say that Teamfight Tactics was rushed out by Riot when it first launched in an attempt to board the Auto Chess bandwagon, which wasn’t just trundling along, but practically taking off at the time.

Teamfight Tactics has proved an enormous success, as it's fairly accessible for an Auto Chess game (a notoriously impenetrable genre already) and features a couple of unique mechanics which set it apart from its competitors.

It's by no means perfect, though. Teamfight Tactics is still new on the scene, which means Riot has a lot of changes in store over the next few months. We're due UI tweaks, new champions, a Battle Pass, new Little Legends and a whole lot more.

To help you keep up to date with every update planned for Teamfight Tactics, we've put together a simple update log. Make sure to bookmark this page if you're keep to keep up to date with all the latest.

Patch 9.14 - What's changed?

Here's everything that's new with patch 9.14.

New Additions

Twisted Fate (Pirate Sorcerer) - Costs 2g. Ability - Twisted Fate throws a card that randomly stuns (Gold), deals damage around his target (Red), or restores mana to himself and nearby allies (Blue).

Ranked: Iron - Challenger. Teamfight Tactics ranked Beta Season starts in patch 9.14.

Systems

Attack Speed Changes

Original Post

Patch 9.14: Developer Update

The latest patch is due to “arrive” later this week according to RiotAugust. It’s also clear that whatever is live for testing on the PBE won’t be exactly what’s arriving in patch 9.14.

We’ll update this page with all the confirmed changes once the patch notes go live later this week.

Popular Teamfight Tactics coverage:

Patch 9.14: Confirmed Changes

- New Champion: Twisted Fate (Pirate/Sorcerer) - His ability randomly selects either a Red, Blue or Yellow Card. Red deals AoE splash damage, Blue restores mana to all friendly allies and Yellow stuns a single target for a couple of seconds.

- Guaranteed Item Drops: There’s a huge element of randomness when it comes to item drops in Teamfight Tactics right now. One player might earn three items from a creep wave, while the other may not even be treated one at all.To combat this, patch creep waves will always drop one guaranteed item when patch 9.14 arrives.

- UI Overhaul: Damage meters, Stat Panels, Streak Indicators, Item Previews from the inventory and more are on the way. Not all of these will make it into patch 9.14, but expect a cleaner, more responsive UI once the update drops.

- Ranked Matchmaking: There will be a ranked matchmaking queue where you’ll earn or lose points after each match and attempt to climb up the ladder. Riot understands that you can’t win every match due to RNG, so if you place in the top four, you’ll gain points towards the next rank.
