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 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.
