TFT patch 14.7 brings the first balance changes of Inkborn Fables, with nerfs to Kog’Maw, Bard, and several other over-performers like Ghostly. Here are the patch notes.

The next patch of Teamfight Tactics brings the first balance patch of Inkborn Fables. With the set already going through plenty of different metas, the devs are looking to smooth out the edges a bit by nerfing particularly strong comps.

When is TFT Patch 14.7 going live?

Teamfight Tactics’ new patch will be released at the same time as League of Legends Patch 14.7 on April 3rd. As per usual, expect a brief period of server downtime before the patch goes live.

What’s changing in TFT Patch 14.7?

Nerfs across the board

Several units and traits are being nerfed in this patch, TFT is in a reroll meta at the moment, with comps like Bard Reroll, Kog’Maw reroll, and Caitlyn Senna Reroll dominating the meta. As such Riot is looking to cut these down to size a bit, nerfing their units or traits.

Sentinels

Instead of training dummies, Riot is introducing Sentinels that will help fight for the player. Not only do they tank and hold items like regular training dummies, but they can fight back and also have their own unique ability, making them a welcome addition to anyone’s army.
