Selected TFT players could have been given a glimpse at the future of Riot’s autobattler. A recent survey has allowed players to choose between a plethora of TFT set options after Fates, both fun and serious, as Riot looks to ramp up the content load.

Every set after Teamfight Tactics’ initial launch has had a distinct theme to it. Set 2 was all about mastering the four elements in Rise of the Elements. Set 3 took us to space with Galaxies. Players might be dueling it out with Runeterra’s gods during Fates, but that will all change.

Riot often soundboard ideas off the community in post-game surveys. It has been a long-time thing in League of Legends, where they’ve teased their expansion into other genres like FPS titles by surveying the game’s players.

Now, they’re using the surveys to dictate the future of TFT. Dexerto has obtained a survey distributed to players this week, with Riot outlining potential ideas for future TFT sets after Fates.

Riot asked players to pick between a selection of three randomly assigned set concepts. There were 11 concepts in total, ranging from serious battles for the future of Runeterra like the Fight for Tomorrow, to more fun and lighthearted ideas like Foodfight to add a comical twist to the autobattler.

We’ve listed all the set options below, including the champions Riot highlighted as potential candidates for units.

TFT survey potential future sets

TFT Fates isn’t going to stick around forever, and one of these set ideas could already be in development for Set 5. The next instalment of Teamfight Tactics is set to launch some time in 2021.

While it’s likely Riot have already decided on the path for their next adventure in the convergence, there’s a possibility one of the survey options could appear in Set 6 or beyond. They could even be part of one of the new game modes coming later in Set 4.

If you see the notification in-game to complete a survey, be sure to do so, as you could shape the future direction of TFT.

Rekkles believes he and G2 Esports are “made for each other”

Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larsson has admitted he and his former rivals turned new organization G2 Esports are basically “made for each other,” as the Swede makes the biggest roster swap of the LEC offseason in his bid to finally win Worlds.

On Nov. 22, Fnatic figurehead and captain Rekkles shocked the League of Legends world; he had accepted a multi-year deal with his team’s arch-rivals G2 Esports.

The switch ended Rekkles’ seven-year tenure with Fnatic, excluding a six-month swap to Europe’s then superteam Elements. The shock move sent ripples through the LEC, and raised another question; could Rekkles actually succeed away from the orange and black?

According to the Swede, who spoke to his fans on his YouTube channel after the huge move was announced, everything will work out just fine. He and G2 are “made for each other,” in more ways than one, and that’s all that matters.

Rekkles officially joined G2 Esports earlier this month.

“I want to be the best,” says Rekkles

“I started doing this because I wanted to be the best, and that means winning Worlds,” Rekkles explained. “G2 Esports, and the roster, has a very similar mindset. In that way, we’re made for each other; the team really wants to win Worlds.”

Between Rekkles and his new org, they have each contested ⁠— and lost ⁠— a Worlds final recently. Fnatic was battered by Invictus Gaming in 2018’s decider, then watched from the sidelines a year later as G2 suffered the same fate against FPX.

The losses were rough, Rekkles agrees, but they’ve given him something else too: hope that the LEC can repeat their long-forgotten 2011 feats, and claim the Summoner’s Cup.

“Ever since 2018, I believe that it’s possible… so it lines up nicely with how G2 feels about it all as well,” he said. “I’ve realized I have a lot more to give than being a participation guy, that goes to every event and every Worlds, but never wins.”

G2’s new star worried about “being serious”

There is one thing worrying Rekkles though. He’s always been a driven, emotional player, and some of his most iconic moments, for better or worse, have come with passion and tears.

G2, and the roster stacked full of jokers like Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski, Caps, and Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen, have built a name as Europe’s pranksters. They sing in champ select, play strange comps, and have ‘happy games.’

“Obviously there’s a little bit of worry in terms of how we fit in socially with the team or culturally,” the Swede admitted with a straight face. “When it comes to games I know we’re gonna be fine, but I am worried about being a more serious guy.”

“I’m maybe not the leader you’d expect… I’m not Perkz,” he added.

The related segment begins at 8:42 in the video below.

Of course, that didn’t dissuade him from trading orange for black and white heading into the new LEC season. Rekkles believes he’s made the right decision, absolutely no question.

“I have this dream of being a player everyone remembers when they look back through time… so I always try to make choices based off that,” he said.

“I [did this] because I believe it will give me the highest chance of succeeding. It wasn’t to do with money. I have always sought victory. I want to play for a team with the highest chances of doing damage at Worlds. Right now, that’s G2.”
