The Teamfight Tactics (TFT) Patch 10.15 is here with a new galaxy called ‘Plunder Planet,’ buffs or nerfs to various champs, and a whole lot more to unpack.

Riot Mortdog said in a July 20 developer rundown that this time around TFT will be getting a “smaller, balancing patch.”

Strong meta characters like Jhin, Janna, and Rakan will be hit with nerfs, while Graves and Lucian will be buffed. Plunder Planet has been added while the Galactic Armory will be hit with a major change to “make it more fair.”

Players can expect a few hours of downtime. Matchmaking and access to the LoL servers will be disabled around three hours before the patch is deployed. This will be around 5am PT on July 22 for US players, and 5am GMT for European players.

TFT Patch 10.15 buffs and nerfs

Graves and Jarvan IV are the only one-cost units that have been changed in the update; the space pirate’s blind time was jacked up a little bit, while J4’s bonus attack speed was knocked down a peg.

Darius, Rakan, and Lucian have also been tweaked in the two-cost camp, and Master Yi, Vayne, Neeko, and Ashe are included from the three-costs. Dark Star all-star Jhin had his 4th shot damage tweaked slightly in 10.15 too.

Soraka, Jinx, Janna, and Xerath all round out the top-end changes. Soraka’s spell healing will change, and Jinx is having her bonus attack speed hit. Janna and Xerath have both been subjected to mana changes in this update.

Viktor got a bit of attention in Patch 10.15, after being “over-nerfed” in the last TFT update. His mana was changed slightly to combat its “inconsistent” nature and will now cast spells more regularly.

Galactic Armory Galaxy

The Galactic Armory Galaxy has been slightly changed this update. Instead of offering up two fully-built items for each player at the start of the game, this randomizer galaxy will now give out three component pieces instead.

“We’ve heard your feedback on Galactic Armory, and the fact that some starts can be a little bit restrictive,” Mortdog said. “We’ve opened it up a little bit so that you get three component items instead of two full-build items now.”

Plunder Planet Galaxy

TFT Patch 10.15 brought a new galaxy to the pool of options. Plunder Planet and will be based around defeating enemies for stacks of extra coins.

Basically, whenever you kill things in TFT with this galaxy enabled you’ll be getting “heaps more gold,” Mortdog explained. The basic idea, he said, was that “everyone would be rich, so it speeds up the game over time.”

The actual description text for the new galaxy reads, “All champions have a chance to drop a coin on death, especially the first few.” Neekoverse will be removed to make room for this new galaxy in TFT Patch 10.15.

Perkz hits back at early LCS doubters: “I’m not here to prove anyone right or wrong”

Perkz has hit back at “doubters” after a mixed opening week in LCS Lock In with Cloud9: the mid laner didn’t move to the North American league to “prove anyone right or wrong” in 2021. Instead, he’s just enjoying the “new adventure.”

Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković’s big-money move ⁠— he signed a rich $8m deal with C9 in November ⁠— was the shock swap of the offseason, as the Croatian left G2 Esports after five years, eight LEC titles, and a Mid-Season Invitational victory.

That switch put all League of Legends eyes on the newly-minted Cloud9 star as he made his LCS debut in the preseason ‘Lock In’ tournament last Friday.

Things didn’t quite go as expected; Cloud9 tumbled to a 21–10 loss to Evil Geniuses, with Perkz recording seven deaths just a day after boasting he “wouldn’t die once.” It was a rough start to life in North America, but one that Perkz doesn’t think changes anything.

“Obviously we lost [on Friday], and that blows, but it doesn’t change anything for the season,” the Croatian promised in an interview with Dexerto. “We’re doing pretty well in scrims, and ⁠— in general ⁠— everything is going pretty well.”

C9 bounced back with two wins, rolling over FlyQuest in an almost-perfect game, before Jesper ‘Zven’ Svenningsen and Robert ‘Blaber’ Huang dismantled Immortals in a 19–4 battle to close out their weekend. Perkz never really got rolling, however.

His quiet performance on Zoe, paired with “tank-duty” against FlyQuest, and that ⁠— in Perkz’s words ⁠— “kinda int” Yone game, has seen LoL fans asking questions.

After all, Perkz is one of the biggest LoL stars in the world. He’s pocketing the second-highest pay packet in North America’s history, and was dubbed a savior for the LCS in a way no other international signing has since Bjergsen in 2013.

In true Luka Perković fashion, though, he doesn’t care.

“I don’t actually mind what other people say. I’m not here to prove anybody else [and their opinions] right or wrong. I’m just here for my own personal growth. Doing the best I can in a new adventure,” the Cloud9 mid laner admitted.

“I don’t really care what the analysts or [other] pro players say because it’s irrelevant to me. I know we’re going to do well as a team. That’s it.”

“Getting on the same page” is key for Perkz and Cloud9 in preseason Lock In event.

There’s only one thing that matters to him: getting on the same page as his Cloud9 teammates, and figuring out how they want to play League of Legends.

Perkz has spent the past five years playing on G2, alongside fast-paced, aggressive European stars. One ⁠— Cloud9 bot laner Zven ⁠— is by his side again. The others, like Jankos and Caps, are still back in Berlin, and Perkz is trying to remember that.

“I just went over the game [the Evil Geniuses loss], and in some moments it looks like I’m really inting, but in my head we wanted to engage there,” he explained.

“If there is no play, it ends up me going 1v5 ⁠— and that’s what it looked like in the replays ⁠— and it’s super int. Maybe that’s the problem, we could not engage, which means I am inting, or we didn’t pull the trigger when we should have.

The team “wasn’t on the same page,” Perkz added, but said he has faith they will figure it out as Lock In continues: “This team is a really good match for me.”

For now, though, Perkz is just “living the American dream.”

That is, he’s settling into Cloud9 life. He has his bedroom and clothes looked after by the organization, and he has his food prepared. He has the freedom to work out, eat healthy, and “totally focus on League of Legends.”

“I feel like I’m a little baby. It feels good, but also a bit bad at the same time,” he laughed. “C9 is really taking care of us, and that’s great. We have so much support behind us. I’m a big fan of how everything is going.”

Cloud9 returns to action on Friday (3pm PT) against Dignitas.
