Riot Games has announced that Set 4 of Teamfight Tactics: Fates will introduce a new feature called “Star Shards,” as well as more Arenas, Booms, and Little Legends for players to collect.

Little Legends are the unique avatars that you can control as you make your moves in Teamfight Tactics and there are plenty of variants for players to customize their character with.

The Little Legends can usually be unlocked by opening ‘Eggs’, which are earned through missions or are available in Riot’s store and the Hextech Crafting tab.

These Legends come in tiers from Common to Legendary and can be upgraded if you manage to collect more than one of the same variant.

However, as the chances of this happening are somewhat unlikely, Riot has decided to introduce a new system called ‘Star Shards’ that will be the go-to path for upgrading Little Legends in Set 4.

Starting with Fates, Teamfight Tactics players will be able to purchase Star Shards or unlock them through the Fates Pass+, which will allow you to “star-up” any Little Legends you have.

Star Shards will be added to TFT to upgrade Little Legends.

These changes will make it much easier for players to know what they are getting, as Star Shards will be now used for upgrading, while Eggs will primarily be used to unlock new characters.

“If you’re looking for the 3-star version of your favorite Little Legend, this’ll be the way to do it.” Riot Games shared, adding that Eggs will also remain useful. “If you’re just looking to broaden your collection, Eggs will still be your best bet.”

Riot confirmed that, along with the Star Shard changes, three new dragon Little Legends: Ao Shin, Umbra, and Choncc, as well as all their non-Legendary variants, will be coming in Set 4.

There will also be three Ionian-themed Fates Arenas added in the upcoming set: Festival, Kanmei, and Akana, which will be available in-store for 1380RP.

Unlike some of the past arenas added to Teamfight Tactics, these three cosmetics will be reactive and will change over the course of your game, based on your wins, losses, streaks, and three-star champion deaths. A Journey’s Destination Arena can also be unlocked through the Fates Pass.

The Fates Passes will have plenty of new cosmetic items for TFT fans, such as “a new lineup of booms” and even more rewards.

Teamfight Tactics players can test out of all of these changes early, as Fates will be coming to PBE over the coming days before its full release on patch 10.19 in mid-September.

Caps passing Perkz as greatest western LoL player – Amazing & Munchables

With the topic of the “greatest Western League of Legends player of all time” heating up once again, Maurice ‘Amazing’ Stückenschneider and Joseph ‘Munchables’ Fenny have explained why G2 Esports star Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther could be taking the number one spot over teammate Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic, in Dexerto’s recent Worlds 2020 review.

As Worlds 2020 is coming closer to declaring a new set of champions, one of the biggest talking points in the League of Legends community has been the overall performance of Western teams at the international event and the individual players who contribute to them.

After G2 Esports defeated Gen.G in the quarter-finals and cemented themselves as “the last Western hope” following Fnatic’s narrow defeat to Top Esports, it raised the question of who exactly is the best Western player of all time.

Speaking on the matter in our Worlds review, Amazing highlighted that Perkz being around for longer has let him build up a more impressive resume than his teammate, “Caps has the highest highs I would suppose and Perkz has the better career so far, because he has done more in his career so far.”

Is Caps better than Perkz?

Munchables followed up by adding that the success Caps has seen in such a short span of time can not go unnoticed when discussing the pair, making it even more difficult to rank who is truly the best player of all time.

“I honestly think the problem is Caps is too good,” he explained. “The amount of time he has been in the scene, versus the amount of time he has been successful, is such a one-sided ratio on the side of success.”

Munchables also claimed that Caps might have had a greater impact on the region as a whole, comparing the success of Europe internationally before and after his time on teams like G2 and Fnatic, who have both made appearances in the Worlds final with him on the roster.

“European success versus, before Caps and with Caps is so dramatically skewed to Caps being a part of that,” Munchables explained. “At this point, I find it almost unarguable that Caps is the best Western player of all time.”

Amazing added that Perkz had paved the way for Caps to be the best in the west, after years of putting together a roster that is now helping the mid laner to shine on the biggest stage. “He’s granted Caps the ability to understand what winning really means.”

He then followed up on Caps’ growth as a player in the new G2 lineup, claiming that he has also had a “shift in mindset” which has massively helped his ability to play at the highest level.

Only time will tell how each of these remarkable players will fare throughout the rest of their careers as there will be plenty of opportunities to sway public opinion. But for now, it will likely remain up for debate as the two G2 stars continue to perform on the Rift.
