Enjoying Teamfight Tactics Galaxies? Expect the set to be shaken up in just a few weeks, with Riot confirming the Mid-Set update slated for Patch 10.12 will not only add new units and traits, but remove current ones, and reset ranked.

TFT Galaxies has been a hit with players, with the new battlefield mechanics keeping every game fresh. However, the game is about to get flipped on its head.

The Mid-Set update has been locked in for Patch 10.12 on June 10, and with it some major changes are on the way. Some units will be removed for the first time mid-set, ranked will be reset, and a new battle pass is on the way.

New champions will replace old units after Patch 10.12

Some of your Set 3 favorites will be disappearing after TFT Patch 10.12. While Riot didn’t go into specifics, they mentioned the update will include “a bunch of new champions and traits and the removal of a few champions and traits.”

One theory behind the shake-up is the impending release of new Pulsefire and Astronaut skins. Champions like Ekko and Fiora already feature in the set, but might be updated with new traits to reflect their new skins.

However, players won’t know the exact changes until the Mid-Set update hits the PBE test servers on May 27.

TFT ladder reset on June 10

When Patch 10.12 launches on June 10, there’ll also be a ranked reset. Players will be reset to one tier below where they finished on Patch 10.11. Players who are Master+, including Challenger players, will be reset to Diamond 4.

Players ranks will also be divided into two Ranked acts due to the host of changes being implemented in the update.

“We felt that it would be important to break that extended time up into two Ranked acts, as the mid-set roster changes are large enough to show a whole new level of mastery,” the developers stated.

The ladder reset could inadvertently have a major impact on how some regions qualify for the TFT Galaxies Global Championship. Servers like Oceania and North America are running Open Qualifiers based on ladder rank, and resetting mid-way through the qualifiers could have a major impact.

The Mid-Set update for TFT Galaxies will also include a new battle pass, three new Little Legends, upgrades to the mobile client, and all the ranked rewards from previous sets.

It’s expected to go live on June 10, in line with League of Legends’ Patch 10.12.

TFT b-patch 11.4 notes: Olaf nerfs, Nasus & Nidalee buffs

A small update for Teamfight Tactics is here with TFT b-patch 11.4. Riot is finetuning some adjustments after their big changes, with the February 24 patch including nerfs to Olaf, as well as buffs to Nasus and Nidalee.

TFT patch 11.4 drastically shook up the game’s meta. Reroll comps were nerfed into the ground, leading to the rise of Slayers and Vanguard-Mystic Neeko.

However, the changes went a bit too far. With Olaf becoming the number one comp instantly, Riot are keen to draw back his power in a big way. On the other hand, Nasus and Nidalee were hit a bit too hard for the devs’ liking.

TFT b-patch 11.4 includes changes for all of these units, and more.

Olaf AD increased, but Runaan’s change is huge nerf

Olaf has quickly risen to the number one carry in TFT with the big nerfs to all his rivals in TFT patch 11.4. Paired with Runaan’s Hurricane, he could cleave through entire teams 1v9. Now, that interaction is changing.

“Hurricane has proved to be too synergistic with Olaf, making him too powerful with the item, but too weak without it. We’re removing the Hurricane interaction, but will be giving him some AD to compensate and open up other build paths,” TFT dev Rodger ‘Minionsrpeople2’ Caudill said in the amended patch notes.

The loss of the Runaan’s proc on his ultimate makes his damage output significantly weaker. While an increase in AD will help balance out the nerf, Olaf forcers will certainly feel the change.

Nidalee was hit the hardest in TFT patch 11.4, so Riot are giving her a bit of love.

Nasus & Nidalee get compensation buff after early nerfs

On the other side of the equation, after getting nuked in the last update, reroll carries Nasus and Nidalee are getting some assistance. Nasus’ mana is getting decreased so he can cast more readily, while Nidalee’s damage at two and three-star is also up.

The changes may not make either comp S-Tier in the meta, but it’s a handy buff. Talon is also getting a huge bugfix that keeps his mana bar full if a target dies midway through his ability animation.

Quicksilver and Runaan’s bugs have also been squashed in the b-patch. You can find the full TFT b-patch 11.4 notes below, courtesy of Riot.
