TFT Patch 10.22 is locked and loaded! With Warwick out of the picture, Riot have got their sights set on TFT’s next big nemesis ⁠— Ahri. On top of that, Dazzler is getting a rework, and some five-costs are undergoing big changes.

Well, TFT Patch 10.21 was certainly exciting. Statikk Shiv-Warwick wasn’t the most fun thing to play against, and was swiftly nerfed in the B-Patch.

However, with the wolf gone, there’s still some other problems. Akali and Ahri are still terrorizing the meta, and others like Dazzler are lagging behind. TFT Patch 10.22 looks to fix all these issues and more, so let’s jump right in.

When is TFT Patch 10.22 being released?

TFT Patch 10.22 is dropping at the same time as League Patch 10.22 on October 28. The servers will go down for maintenance at around 5am local time (depending on server location), before coming back up three hours later at around 8am.

Be sure to get your last games in on Patch 10.22 in the wee-hours of Wednesday morning, as matchmaking will likely be disabled at around 3am.

Dazzler rework, Ahri nerfs headline TFT Patch 10.22

There are two major points of TFT Patch 10.22 ⁠— Dazzler is getting reworked, and Ahri is getting nerfed yet again.

On Dazzler, the trait is having its values swapped. Instead of each tier increasing the duration of the debuff, it will now increase the amount of attack damage reduced. At Dazzler 2, enemy AD will be cut by 50% for eight seconds. Dazzler 4 will cull a whopping 80%.

Ahri is also being targeted. The four-cost Spirit Mage reigns supreme as one of TFT’s best units, if not the best unit. Her Spirit Bomb is a whole-map nuke with the right items. However, Riot are looking at making it less so in TFT Patch 10.22 by cutting her damage.

Riot are also looking at cracking down on five-costs. With the Chosen mechanic and the way the set is laid out, splashing in five-costs late is always a fine play. They are ultra powerful, even at one-star, compared to the other units.

Lillia and Lee Sin are all set to receive some nerfs. Lee Sin’s stun will be halved at one and two-star, while Lillia’s two and three-star sleep damage is being nerfed too.

Sett, on the other hand, is receiving a buff. His earlier mana nerfs hit him too hard, and as such, Riot are compensating for it with a bit more damage on his slams.

Outside of the aforementioned, Vayne, Vi, Evelynn, and Nunu are all set for buffs. Akali is getting yet another nerf, as well as Ninja and Sharpshooter. Lissandra is also expected to be changed.

Overwatch player’s dad goes viral after recreating every hero emote

One Overwatch player’s dad has gone viral for recreating emotes for all of the game’s original heroes and has given us inspiration for a fantastic Reinhardt skin idea all at the same time.

Over the years the emotes of Overwatch heroes have been recreated and memed countless times, but you don’t often see the kind of dedication required to attempt one from each hero in a single go.

But, that’s just what one YouTuber Nick Luciano and his dad did in a video using various household items that’s once again making the rounds on Reddit, and we have to say that Reinhardt impression is still one of the best we’ve ever seen.

Masterfully replacing the rocket hammer for an electric weed wacker, Luciano’s father knocks it out of the park with moves that could have been the motion capture for the character himself, before realizing his neighbor was watching and trying to laugh it off with a casual “hey Carl!”

To be fair the clip at the top of the game’s subreddit is more than three years old at this point, but pops has been hard at work recreating all kinds of emotes and poses from various titles on YouTube since, Overwatch included.

What you won’t see in the Reddit post are the additional emotes performed by Luciano’s dad, released a year later. Who knew that all it took was a back pillow to make a perfect D.Va costume in just a few seconds?

Obviously, he’s not a professional YouTuber, so there’s no real regular upload schedule or any kind of consistency, but for this kind of great content, that’s just fine. He probably has dad stuff to do as well, such as mowing the lawn, and organizing various shelves in the garage.

With Overwatch 2 right on the horizon, and hopefully a new game’s worth of emotes coming along with it, Luciano and his pops will hopefully find the time to record even more hilarious imitations in the backyard.
