Teamfight Tactics appears to have a bug that can result in items seemingly vanishing, but it is possible to reclaim them.
The League of Legends-based autobattler has been a massive hit with players and viewers alike, regular sitting among the top titles on Twitch since its launch.
While Teamfight Tactics is now available to all players, however, it is technically still in a beta phase, which means Riot still have a few kinks to work out and the occasional bug does show up.
One of those bugs appears to result in items from a player’s inventory vanishing, but fortunately there is a way to get them back.
While streaming Teamfight Tactics, Team Liquid Hearthstone pro David ‘Dog’ Caero, who has also established himself as one of TFT’s top players, noticed that a Chain Vest that had been sitting in his inventory seemed to have disappeared.
It seems that after the end of the previous round, when Dog had moved to a new board for the set-up phase ahead of the next battle, his item had not come with him. Fortunately, with a bit of searching around he was able to find it on another board and bring it back over to his team.
It’s not clear if or when the item would have returned to Dog’s inventory had he not gone to collect it, but just to be safe it’s probably worth retrieving your items as soon as possible if you do encounter this issue.
Even if missing items do return on their own for the next round, not having them available in the planning phase could drastically affect the power level of the team you’re able to field, so if you notice you’ve suddenly lost some or all of your inventory, be sure to have a look around on other boards.
