TFT Patch 10.19 is arguably the biggest Teamfight Tactics update for the year. The latest set, Fates, is launching on live servers in the September 16 patch, with 58 new champions, a host of new traits, and an all-new gameplay experience.

Out with the old, in with the new. After six months of playing on various different galaxies in the Convergence, TFT players are now back in one place ⁠— on solid, Ionian, ground.

TFT Patch 10.19 marks the launch of the fourth set in Riot’s LoL-themed autobattler. Named TFT Fates, the battleground is a mix of “gods and mortals alike—from splendid Divines to Tormented villains, from kind Spirits to dreadful Phantasms—come from far and wide to seek their Fortunes as the dragons’ Chosen.”

Sounds fun and exciting? If you were feeling a bit washed out from Galaxies, this should be a breath of fresh air. We’ve got everything you need to know about TFT Patch 10.19 below, and the whole new set.

TFT Fates arrives, Galaxies is gone

With TFT Fates coming in the next update on September 16, players are saying goodbye to TFT Galaxies.

The third set has arguably been TFT’s most popular yet, with players really getting around the Galaxies mechanic changing the battlefield every game. Riot have taken notice of that, and are looking at potentially incorporating Galaxies into the game down the line.

TFT Fates brings a new style of gameplay centered around picking a Chosen champion and building your comp around it. The Chosen champions are powered-up picks in your shop, with double traits, extra stats, and the price tag to match.

There are 58 champions to choose from, and Riot will be keeping that number stable across the set. When new champs are added, Riot will take some away. The biggest shake-up will happen in the Mid-Set update, locked in for “early 2021”.

New Little Legends, Arenas, battle pass coming in TFT Patch 10.19

Of course, the new set can’t just drop by itself. Riot are putting on a celebration for TFT Fates, adding a host of new Little Legends, Arenas, and an all-new battle pass you can play through across the set.

The long-rumored League champion Ao Shin finally makes it into the playable universe as a Little Legends in Teamfight Tactics. He is joined by the lovable Choncc and the guitar-wielding Umbra. The three of them make a nice little band in game too, so maybe pair them with some True Damage Little Legends for a full-on concert.

There will also be three new arenas ⁠— Festival, Kanmei, and Akana ⁠— available for purchase. The Ionian themed battlegrounds are a lot more natural than the intergalactic Galaxies’ ones.

The Pass is launching on Patch 10.19, too. There will be two tracks: the Free track, or the Pass+ available for 1295 RP. With Pass+, you’ll get access to new Booms, Little Legends eggs, and the Journey’s Destination Arena. We will have a full breakdown of what’s included in the pass once the update goes live.

TFT Patch 10.19 will be set live on September 16, so be sure to grind out Galaxies in the final week to try and get the rank you want. After then, it’ll be disappearing for good.

We will update this with a full patch notes list closer to TFT Patch 10.19’s release. For now, if you want to get in on the action, download the PBE and start playing!

Riot Games has now confirmed League of Legends Patch 10.22 will indeed be arriving on schedule, and we’ve got all the patch notes, balance changes, and more for LoL fans to dig through ahead of the new Oct. 28 update.

League champion 151, musical sorceress Seraphine, is set to finally arrive this patch, and she’s bringing a set of new K/DA “ALL OUT” skins with her too well; Ahri, Akali, Kai’Sa, and Evelynn will all be getting new K-pop variants this time around.

Annie is also under the microscope in patch 10.22, and will be handed a mini-rework, while new ADC terror Samira will be hit with new nerfs ⁠— here’s all the early details on League of Legends patch 10.22, starting with release times.

When is League of Legends Patch 10.22 coming?

The next League of Legends update is expected to be rolled out on Wednesday, October 28. It will begin in Oceania at 8am AEST (3pm Tuesday PT), and will be rolled out in all regions at 8am from there.

Players can expect a few hours of downtime. Matchmaking and access to the LoL servers will be disabled around three hours before the patch is deployed. This will be around 5am PT on Oct. 28 for US players, and 5am GMT for EU players.

League of Legends patch 10.22 early notes

Seraphine makes her League of Legends debut

League of Legends champion 151, Seraphine, will finally be arriving on Summoner’s Rift in patch 10.22, after months of teasers and even a virtual account being created on Twitter and social media to promote the Starry-Eyed Songstress.

Seraphine — who has copped some flack ahead of her release for being a little to close to old champion Sona — is a healing mage.

Instead of outright announcing Seraphine as a League of Legends champion, Riot has been cryptically dancing around the question.

In the September 24 Champion Roadmap, they announced that “when Piltover and Zaun’s new rising star finally hits the promenade, she might convert you into an instant mega-fan,” which all but confirmed her release.

Her passive allows her to build-up “notes” to deal more damage. Seraphine’s Q, High Note, is a simple damage spell, while Surround Sound (W), heals. Her stun is “Beat Drop,” which can be used with E. Her ultimate, Encore, is a combination of all three.

Get caught up on her builds, runes, and strategies in our Seraphine guide.

Annie gets mini-rework in LoL patch 10.22

Annie, one of the original characters in League of Legends, is the headlining champion for Patch 10.22, outside Seraphine of course. The Dark Child is finally getting a mini-rework that Riot hopes will boost her support playstyle slightly.

The main change comes for her E ability, Molten Shield. The mana cost is spiking slightly for her defensive spell (40, up from 20), but the trade-off is she can now give the shield to one of her allies, similar to Morgana’s iconic Black Shield.

The new Molten Shield reflects magic damage (20/30/40/50/60) and grants 30-60% movement speed over a 1.5 seconds decay following the cast.

K/DA go “ALL OUT” with new patch 10.22 skins

The latest K/DA skin line, “ALL OUT,” is set to arrive in LoL Patch 10.22. All five members of K/DA ⁠— Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, Kai’Sa, and newcomer Seraphine — will be getting skins. Seraphine will be getting an Ultimate version of her skin.

Kai’Sa is also lucky enough to get her own special variant. The ADC champion will have a “Prestige” edition alongside her normal ALL OUT skin option.

All of the new ALL OUT skins will be available for at least 1350 RP next patch. Seraphine’s Ultimate skin will cost 3250 RP, while Kai’Sa’s K/DA Prestige skin will cost 2000 event tokens. All six skins are already being tested on the PBE.

Here’s the full League patch 10.22 notes, courtesy of S@20. The Oct. 28 patch notes will be updated with official changes when Riot Games releases them as OCE servers begin patching at 11am PT.
