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.

Sneaky reportedly in talks with Dignitas to return to the LCS in 2021

It’s early days in the League roster shuffle, but one of the biggest moves could be just around the corner. Veteran AD carry Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi could be making his triumphant return to the LCS, with the star reportedly in talks with Dignitas.

Could Sneaky be making his return to the LCS? The two-time champion has been out of the limelight for 12 months now after being dropped from the Cloud9 roster ahead of Spring 2020.

He marked his intentions to return back in August, and now, those dreams could be realized. After “actively looking for a pro play opportunity,” Sneaky could have snagged a spot back in the LCS to make his triumphant return.

Sneaky is reportedly in talks with Dignitas to return to the LCS for Spring 2021. Travis Gafford reported the rumor in an October 23 video ⁠— but it’s just that for now, a very big rumor. He would be coming in to replace 2020 rookie Johnson ‘Johnsun’ Nguyen.

The move could send shockwaves through the North American League scene, given Sneaky’s prestige on both a domestic and international level. He made 339 appearances for Cloud9 from 2013 to 2019, and won two domestic titles.

On the other hand, Dignitas has had a less-than-stellar 2020. While they technically made it to Worlds in 2019 under Clutch Gaming, they were unable to make it a repeat appearance, coming seventh and eighth in both LCS splits this year. The organization is still yet to win an LCS title.

However, Sneaky’s rumored return to the LCS also comes at a time where fans are asking for more fresh blood. After NA’s disappointing performance at Worlds 2020, there’s been calls for dramatic reform of the LCS.

This includes buying into more academy talent, and bringing in fresh faces instead of constantly recycling players between teams.

Sneaky’s return could be seen as flying in the face of such reform. However, if there is a veteran AD carry you want to bring onboard, you could do much worse than the former Cloud9 star.

Sneaky and Dignitas are yet to confirm the rumors. We will update you once more information arises. In the meantime, be sure to check out our League off-season rostermania hub for the latest transfers as they happen.
