TFT Fates is finally hitting live servers in Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.19, with a host of new champions, a new Chosen mechanic, and a whole new way to play Riot’s League of Legends-inspired autobattler.

Out with Galaxies, it’s time to choose your fate. Teamfight Tactics’ Galaxies set is driving out into the sunset, and with it, a new dawn is arriving with Fates. The autobattler’s fourth set since its release in 2019 has been widely praised on the PBE, and now, it’s time to go live.

58 new champions, dozens of new origins and classes, an all-new Chosen mechanic, and a fresh battle pass bigger than any before it awaits players after TFT Patch 10.19. Here’s everything you need to know.

TFT Fates launches

It’s been the big talking point for weeks in Teamfight Tactics, and now it’s time for it to go live. Teamfight Tactics’ fourth set, titled Fates, will be shipped live on TFT Patch 10.19. This marks the start of a new battle pass, all-new mechanics, and a new way to play the autobattler.

To help guide you through this set, here’s a breakdown of everything coming.

58 new champions, dozens of new origins and classes

TFT Fates is the biggest set yet, with nearly 60 champions arriving on Patch 10.19. While some old faces like Vayne, Maokai, Kennen, and Akali return, there’s also some new blood like Yone and Lillia.

Fates has a heavy spirit-based theme. There’s even an origin named Spirit. Ninjas are back after a notable absence since Set 1. There are also new origins like Cultist, which summons a mega Galio to carry your team, and Warlord, buffing you up as you win more battles.

Class-wise, the usual suspects like Assassin, Mage, Mystic, and Vanguard have returned, albeit some have been changed slightly. There are also some new additions, like the attack damage reducing Dazzler, or the attack speed slowing Adept.

Chosen mechanic replaces Galaxies

There’s also an all-new set mechanic that you’ll need to play around every game. The Chosen mechanic is different to previous sets ⁠— buffing up individual units and their compositions, instead of changing the board for everyone.

You’ll have the chance to choose the Chosen champion you want when it pops up in your shop. It’ll automatically be two-star, have a double trait, and extra stats on top of that. They can help you build out team comps with less units, or gun for those juicy nine-unit bonuses.

Once you pick a Chosen, no more Chosens will appear in your shop until you sell yours. It’s worth sometimes getting an early Chosen, and then upgrading it as the game progresses. However, don’t build your entire game plan around one Chosen, as you might not find it.

Fates pass with new Little Legends, booms, arenas, more

The new set means a new pass too. The TFT Fates pass is bigger than any other pass added to Teamfight Tactics, with 45 tiers of rewards including Little Legends, booms, arenas, and more.

It costs 1295 RP for the Pass+, which will drastically increase the amount of rewards you can redeem. If you want to get your hands on the limited edition Little Legends, you’ll need to upgrade from the free track.

Changes to carousels, leveling, shop

Some things have stayed constant throughout every set of Teamfight Tactics. Three of those things are carousels, levelling, and the shop.

The Carousel item drop rate has been changed, and slightly fixed. There’s now less of a chance to get wholly-random items on the carousel, as some of them will have distinct themes like offense, defense, and utility.

The experience required to level in the later stages of the game has also been increased. It now takes an extra four XP to get to level 7, six for level 8, and 14 for level 9.

Finally, the shop will no longer give you repeat champions if you didn’t buy them in your last shop. This gives you a better chance of finding the units you need to build your comp.

Systems

Chosen

“Galaxies are out, Chosen are in. Occasionally, you will be offered a Chosen champion in your shop. These champions are already at 2-star level, so they cost three times their normal 1-star price and come with some extra power.
One of their traits (origin or class) is “Chosen” and counts as 2 of that trait.
They also get +200 HP and a unique stat bonus—either 400 HP, 30% spell power, 30 AD, or 25% reduced mana cost.”

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.
