In League of Legends-based autobattler Teamfight Tactics, building a team of champions with trait synergies is crucial to success.

Teamfight Tactics is Riot Games’ take on the autobattler genre, offering players an entirely different way to face off with the champions and items featured in the popular MOBA.

Rather than piloting champions directly, players must deploy their teams on the field and rely on their composition, positioning, and power levels to secure victory.

One of the core mechanics in Teamfight Tactics is champion synergies – the bonus effects produced by having multiple champions on the board that share traits.

To help you field the strongest teams possible, here’s everything you need to know about champion synergies.

Riot Games

Teamfight Tactics champion traits

All champions have at least two traits: an ‘origin’ and a ‘class’. There are examples, however, of champions with a third trait, such as Gangplank, who has two classes – Blademaster and Gunslinger – in addition to his Pirate origin.

Trait effects require a certain number of champions sharing the trait to be on the field in order to come into effect, and for many the power of the effect will scale up as the number of champions with that trait increases.

Especially as the game progresses and players can field more champions, it becomes crucial to hit as many trait bonuses as possible, with the most powerful traits being central to late-game strategies.

How to give Teamfight Tactics champions new traits

In addition to champions’ default traits, certain traits can be granted to champions with the use of particular items, which means that the champion in question can then contribute to and benefit from that trait’s effects.

Most of the traits that can be granted by items are classes, with only one item giving an additional origin. The following items can confer an additional trait, all of which are built by combining another basic item with the Spatula:

  • Youmuu’s Ghostblade – You are an Assassin.
  • Blade of the Ruined King – You are a Blademaster.
  • Yuumi – You are a Sorcerer.
  • Darkin – You are a Demon.
  • Knight’s Vow – You are a Knight
  • Frozen Mallet – You are Glacial.

Below is a list of all of the champion traits in Teamfight Tactics, which champions they apply to, and what effects they can produce.

Fnatic finally reveal Upset as Rekkles replacement in ADC for LEC 2021

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
