League of Legends pop group K/DA have finally made their return with a new single and have also announced an upcoming EP, ahead of Worlds 2020, later in the year.

Riot Games is well known for incorporating musical acts with League of Legends events, with new songs for every Worlds event and groups such as True Damage and K/DA being introduced.

K/DA is a pop group that was first introduced to the League of Legends in 2018 and was based around fan-favorite champions: Evelynn, Ahri, Kai’Sa, and Akali.

K/DA are expected to have a new look for the release of their upcoming EP.

Their debut single POP/STARS quickly became a global hit, reaching the number one spot on iTunes and Billboard charts and even released a music video that has pulled over 365 million views so far.

The League of Legends pop group have now returned with a brand new track titled the “THE BADDEST” and have also announced an EP, which is expected to drop later in the year.

However, this new track also featured appearances from two new artists, Bea Miller and Wolftyla, adding new elements to the track alongside SOYEON and MIYEON from (G)I-DLE.

The group initially featured Madison Beer, Jaira Burns, SOYEON and MIYEON but seem to be making changes going forward, opening up the possibilities for multiple artists to collaborate on K/DA to “embrace a more global pop sound.”

“Artists featured in THE BADDEST and the rest of the songs on the upcoming EP will be collaborators,” Riot shared, “allowing K/DA to welcome a much larger roster of amazingly talented musicians to join them in their comeback.”

Toa Dunn, Head of Riot Games Music revealed that there was a massive demand for a new K/DA track following the group’s debut and that the EP later in the year would be packed with “tons of surprises for League of Legends and K/DA fans.”

With the hype building around K/DA’s project later in the year, fans have also been speculating that a future League of Legends champion called “Seraphine” might also join the group after more hints were shared on social media.

Ahead of the next update, Riot have slid in a little addendum to TFT Patch 10.20 with a “b-patch” hotfix. The devs are keeping a keen eye on Spirit, Aphelios, Ashe, and more, as they look to tone down the “overperformers” urgently.

While Riot seemingly did away with the b-patches during the latter stages of Galaxies, the mid-update changes are back. In TFT Fates, Riot will be keeping more of a keen eye during the week following a major update to potentially drop even more changes.

They were happy after the set’s launch initially, but there have been a few overperformers in TFT Patch 10.20 Riot want to tone down ahead of the next update. They aren’t doing too much though, as they want the next patch to be a big one.

“[TFT Patch] 10.21 is shaping up to be a big patch, but these changes felt worth getting out a little earlier. B-Patches are limited to number changes, so bigger changes have to wait,” developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer explained after the October 7 update went live.

Spirit 4 nerfed, Brawler-Ashe targeted

The major changes in TFT Patch 10.20b are to Spirit, Ashe, and Aphelios. The two champions, and the trait, have been the crux of many of the meta compositions.

Looking at Spirit, Riot has decided the Patch 10.20 changes weren’t enough originally. Spirit 4 is being nerfed by another 10% bonus attack speed, dropping from 80% of the mana cost to 70%. This should hopefully bring it more in line, although without Ahri nerfs being shipped, that remains to be seen.

Brawler-Ashe has been one of the most consistent compositions of the set so far. With Ashe being able to dish out huge amounts of damage with an in-built attack speed steroid, she’s risen to be one of the best units in the set. Riot will be toning that back though, reducing her ability’s attack speed at one and two-star.

Brawler-Ashe is getting a notable nerf if you don’t manage to find three-star Ashe.

Aphelios carry is also another popular composition. Riot has deemed his ability to generate turrets a bit too efficient though, so he’s losing some of his starting mana so he can’t automatically start firing away.

Janna and Veigar are also being targeted in TFT Patch 10.20b. Janna’s total mana is going up from 50 to 60, while Veigar is losing damage on his Dark Blossom ability at all levels.

You can find the full TFT Patch 10.20b changes below.
