The Galaxies mechanic has been a hit with players since the start of Teamfight Tactics Set 3, and more new battlefields are on their way in Patch 10.9.

TFT Galaxies has been a hit with players thanks to its interesting battlefield mechanics. While Set 2 got dull quicker than Riot were hoping for, Set 3 has given them the flexibility to be more dynamic in how the game is played.

They aren’t taking the foot off the gas, either. New galaxies are coming to keep players on their toes, and they’re coming in droves.

Two new galaxies are on their way for Patch 10.9 ⁠— although one might be delayed for an update or two. In an April 16 blog post, TFT lead designer Stephen ‘Mort’ Mortimer explained what players can expect in Patch 10.9.

“We’re adding the Treasure Trove galaxy where every NPC is guaranteed to drop a loot orb,” he said. “The chance of getting the Treasure Trove galaxy will be much less than the others.

“We’re also experimenting with a galaxy that will add two-star champions to the carousel.”

Both galaxies are available on the PBE for testing right now, with the Treasure Trove almost certain to come in the next update. The other galaxy is still in early testing however, so players might need to wait until Patch 10.10 or beyond.

TFT players can expect new Galaxies with every patch.

These galaxies aren’t the only ones in store for players. More new battlefields will be released as the set goes on, making for more dynamic gameplay and keeping players on their toes.

“The galaxies have landed well and added a bunch of new ways to play, and there seems to be a lot of creativity and exciting moments happening,” he added.

The possibility of even removing galaxies that disrupt gameplay too much is on the cards. “We’re also open to removing galaxies that aren’t adding new and interesting strategies to your gameplay, so keep letting us know what you think.”

The Neekoverse is one of the galaxies available to players, giving everyone access to two Neeko’s Helps from 1-1.

Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.8 marked the release of Set 3’s first new unit, Xerath. The five-cost Dark Star Sorcerer has been tearing up the galaxy, and the meta has been blown open.

No new units are currently set for future patches, but there’s bound to be one in the coming weeks. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
