Teamfight Tactics (TFT) is barrelling towards its next reset, but before we get there, there’s one last update: Patch 10.11. Xayah and Kayle headline the patch nerfs, while new galaxy ‘Littler Legends’ will also be added in the May 28 update.

Galaxy trait ‘Chrono’ will also be getting buffed in TFT Patch 10.11. All units with the Chrono origin get bonus attack speed. New buffs see the 4-unit boost lowered to 3.5s (from 4s) and the 6-unit boost lowered to 1.5s (from 2s).

Chrono units Caitlyn and Blitzcrank have headed the other direction in 10.11. They are set to be joined in the nerf column by Graves, Blitzcrank, Xayah, and for the second patch in a row, Kayle. Last Whisper will also be nerfed this update.

On the other side of the coin in Patch 10.11, Master Yi, and Cho’Gath will be netting buffs alongside the Chrono trait. The Set 3 units have struggled to have an impact so far in the season, and Riot is aiming to give them a little push.

Finally, Dark Star unit Jarvan IV will have his ability attack speed tweaked slightly, and the Infiltrator trait ⁠— which includes Ekko, Fizz, Kai’Sa, and more ⁠— will also be adjusted in the next Teamfight Tactics patch.

Lucian, Master Yi, and Cho'Gath are the lucky trio in line for buffs in Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.11.

TFT Patch 10.11 to add ‘Littler Legends’ Galaxy

Patch 10.11 will bring another galaxy to Teamfight Tactics. Last fortnight was the item-sharing Galaxy Armory. This time around, the new-look game-changing effect will be titled “Littler Legends.”

Riot has yet to confirm exactly what the new galaxy does, but we can assume it will work in a similar fashion to “Medium Legends,” which saw little legends become “larger” with 125 health. ‘Littler Legends’ may go the other way, for 75HP per player.

When will Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.11 go live?

TFT 10.11 is expected to arrive on live League servers on Thursday, May 28. The update was delayed by one day due to America’s long weekend holiday. It will go live alongside LoL Patch 10.11, which will include Volibear’s rework, and more.

Not every buff, nerf, and re-balance has been available on the Teamfight Tactics Public Beta Environment yet, but a host of the expected Patch 10.11 changes have. Here’s a full rundown of the upcoming changes so far:

T1 & LS respond to League of Legends coach controversy

Both Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare and T1 have responded to the mass backlash against the iconic Korean organization seemingly ignoring LoL fan toxicity.

When Korean League of Legends behemoths T1 by mistake leaked that Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare would be the organization’s new coach, T1 fans went wild.

In a story that has gone viral, die-hard T1 fans have been seen giving LS racial and homophobic abuse online, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending mysterious packages to her address. For many, T1’s lack of substantial response up until this point has been considered as them condoning the abuse, and the controversy has caused many a fan to stray away from the T1 fold.

So while it’s taken some time, both parties have finally spoken out on the situation in an attempt to clarify what has been happening behind the scenes.

One of the most famous pictures from this event is of a T1 fan’s van being parked outside T1’s HQ demanding LS’ removal.

T1 apologizes

A lengthy apology was released via Twitlonger from CEO Joe Marsh regarding the LS situation on November 24. The document is largely an apology towards the T1 fanbase for not speaking out quicker, and in turn, allowing the fans to be slandered and attacked by the press.

Marsh claims that T1 fans and South Koreans, in general, have been made victims of “unfair generalizations about their cultures, moral, and character” due to being “accused of harassing LS.” Additionally, the apology covers the unacceptable abuse towards LS that had been left on the organization’s discord, apologizing to the fans for any upset these may have caused.

T1 player Lee ‘Effort’ Sang-ho also receives T1’s condolences, as T1 did not come to his defense after the LS news was leaked accidentally on his stream.

However, most League of Legends fans were concerned with LS, who only gets mentioned at the end of the Twitlonger in a paragraph that reads as more interested in appeasing the fans than addressing any abuse and doxxing. While Marsh confirms that a “police report” has been filed regarding the package sent to LS’ mother, there seems to be very little apology directed only to LS.

LS’ video response

In a 14-minute long YouTube video, LS addresses the T1 situation and his future with the organization. While he had initially been chosen to join the T1 content creation team, questions were asked whether or not he would like to move up to the role as a coach.

While expressing that it would be a dream come true, LS clarifies that he was happier with the content role.

He expresses his apologies for any previous support of bbq Olivers’ Sebastian ‘Malice’ Edholm’s racist remarks, noting that he had not seen the messages containing the offensive comments before he endorsed the player. As a man living in South Korea who calls it home, it’s clear LS would never knowingly have participated in defending racism despite T1 fans claiming otherwise.

As for the future, LS has chosen to remain in Korea. He states that “for all the years that teams wanted me to leave Korea and go coach elsewhere or join a different org, or join different teams; one thing’s always remained true and that’s that I love Korea and I don’t want to leave here. T1 is going to enable me to be able to do everything I’ve always wanted to do and more.”

So while this may not be the dramatic response that many fans were hoping for, LS seems prepared for a bright future regardless.
