Teamfight Tactics patch 11.4 is now live, and there’s plenty of changes to get used to. Riot has implemented big changes to the Chosen mechanic to reduce RNG, while almost every meta comp in the game — from Kayle to Nidalee — is getting nerfed.

With TFT Set 4.5 now in full motion, Riot have gotten down into tinkering with all of the nuances. They have seemingly taken a sledgehammer to the game though, nerfing almost everything conceivable.

From the Chosen mechanic RNG to almost every meta composition in the game, there’s a reason why streamers have coined TFT patch 11.4 as “Set 4.75.” Here’s what you need to know about the update.

TFT patch 11.4 Chosen rework reduces RNG

Riot had some big changes planned for Chosen in TFT patch 11.4. On the PBE, developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer explained they were “experimenting” to try and reduce Chosen RNG.

While some of them made the cut in the end, most of them fell by the wayside. That doesn’t mean the mechanic drastically shifted in this patch.

Chosens will now be offered in 50% of shops if you don’t own one, up from 33%. This means you can be a bit more selective on your rolldowns because Chosens will appear more frequently.

However, Chosens themselves will be worth less. The bonus Spell Power, Attack Damage, Mana Reduction, and Health given to Chosens has been reduced across the board.

“By toning down the power of Chosens and increasing the rate at which you see them we’re aiming to make the feel bad moment of missing your β€˜just hit(s)’ less punishing,” Rodger ‘MinionsRPeople2’ Caudill said in the patch notes.

Almost every meta comp in TFT was hit. Nidalee was arguably nerfed the hardest.

Kayle, Yasuo, Nidalee & Neeko headline balance changes

Balance-wise, Riot have their sights set on basically every meta comp in the game. Public enemy number one, however, is Kayle.

If the Divine rework wasn’t enough on TFT patch 11.3, direct nerfs to Kayle might knock her down the tier list somewhat. She’s losing some damage at two-star, which could impact her carry ability. Oh, and 2 and 4 Divine are being hit again.

Duelist reroll with Yasuo carry is getting hit hard too. Riot is nerfing his damage at all levels, as well as the Duelist trait’s attack speed buff.

Other meta comps, including Diana reroll, Nidalee reroll, Warlords, Katarina, Shyvana-Brawler, Wukong reroll, Nasus reroll, and Zed carry are also getting nerfed. Fiora and Samira also found their way into Riot’s bad books.

Neeko-Vanguard-Mystic players are the big winners in TFT patch 11.4.

On the flipside, Neeko is the big winner of TFT patch 11.4. The 3 cost Fabled Mystic is receiving bonus damage at all levels, which is a huge boon for the Vanguard Mystic players. Other Fableds Nautilus and Cho’Gath are being buffed, as well as Vanguard Braum.

Xayah, Irelia, Kennen, Olaf, Talon, Tryndamere, Yone are all being buffed, as well as Gargoyle Stoneplate, Quicksilver, and the Cultist trait.

TFT patch 11.4 additional Trait changes

Outside of the unit changes, Traits are being tweaked in this update as well. Warlord, Brawler, Elderwood, and Duelist have all been targeted to some degree.

For the Warlords, it’s nerfs across the board. Units now have reduced health along with lesser spell power. The same can be said for the Brawler as units have had health and AD lowered.

Meanwhile, Elderwood units now have less armor along with a decrease in AD and spell power to boot. Last but not least, Duelist’s AS per stack has been scaled back slightly.

Day one recap: Didychrislito sets a marker as favorites cruise through

Day one was a day for the favorites as there were no major upsets in the eMLS League Series 2 Quarter-Finals. There were plenty of cagey affairs, kicked off by BenR scraping a late 1-0 win in the first game with xbLeU. Though, the Austin FC representative struck back in a pulsating 6-4 second leg, scoring two late goals to bag a 6-5 aggregate win.

The action did slow down a notch in the following games. DC United’s KingCJ0 surprised the viewers by putting KidM3Mito to the sword. He bagged early goals in the first legs, finishing up with a 3-1 win. CJ was cruising in leg two before two late consolations goals from Chicago Fire’s King M3Mito made it a respectable 5-3 aggregate scoreline.

From there, it was slightly plainer for the favorites. FC Dallas’ AlanAvi made sure the Twitch chat bets cashed without much worrying, taking down Orlando City’s Maloney with ease in convincing fashion. The 24-year-old completely dominated both legs, finishing up with a comfortable 3-0 first-leg win before seeing out the return fixture with a 1-0 victory.

In the final clash of the day, Series One winner Didychrislito bagged his semi-final berth by dismantling FC Cincinnati’s Fiddle 7-2. The New York City star was in complete control across both games, going as far as rounding the ‘keeper to make a statement that he’s hungry for the Series Two title as well.

Day two recap: DidyChrisLito claims the crown

For the first time all weekend, a game could not be finished in normal time, as KingCJ0 progressed thanks to a dramatic penalty shootout. It was a tense meeting between the DC United man and FC Dallas’ AlanAvi, but after withstanding late pressure in the second leg, KingCJ0 held his nerves through 10 rounds of spot kicks, coming away with the 6-5 aggregate win.

League Series One winner DidyChrisLito continued where he left off from day one, dispatching of Austin FC’s xbLeU without too many issues. Chris fell behind early in both legs, but responded with crisp attacks to dispatch of his opponent by an 8-2 aggregate scoreline. xbLeU had no answer for DidyChrisLito’s threaded through balls and was unable to replicate the magic of late win over benR from day one.

The final was more of the same from the New York City FC man. He fell behind early in both games against KingCJ0 but got into his groove, striking back in both games. In the second leg, his championship experience really showed out though, fighting back from 2-1 down to win.
