Fates has been announced as the fourth Teamfight Tactics Set. With the next edition of Riot’s League of Legends-inspired auto-battler set to release in September, the developers have given players a first look at what to expect, including the theme of the set, champions, traits and more.

Teamfight Tactics Set 4 is exactly what it says on the box ⁠— the fourth edition of Riot’s fan-favorite auto-battler. We’ve been across Runeterra, and even to distant Galaxies in Set 3. Set 4 which has been titled ‘Fates’ is expected to take us “on a journey to distant lands.”

There’s an abundance of places that could take us in Runeterra. Could players be teleported to the far stretches of the continent, or perhaps places yet to be discovered? How about the Shadow Isles, or even up to the Aspects in space?

Here’s everything we know about TFT Set 4 so far, including the champions players can expect to see, and when exactly Riot will pull the trigger on the next big Teamfight Tactics update.

Fates announced as TFT Set 4

The TFT devs officially announced Set 4 on August 20, revealing that “Fates” would be the title of this mystical chapter.

Along with the announcement, the Riot devs shared what seems to be four new traits or origins that will be live in patch 10.19.

Dragons, Magic, Spirits, and Storms classes were shared and TFT fans were quick to deduce that champions like Shyvana, Aurelion Sol, and Volibear would all be likely to return.

Similar to the Galaxies set, Set 4 will be released with a Fates Pass and Fates Pass+ for players to unlock personalization content as they play.

Set 4 will also mark the start of a new ranked season, new Booms, dragon-themed Little Legends, and alternate ways to upgrade them.

What champions are coming in TFT Set 4?

There will be a whole new roster of 58 champions, based on the mythical fantasy skin lines of League of Legends, with updated Origins and Classes, along with new items and a set mechanic.

Riot have been dropping teasers since August 6, when TFT developer ‘GreenTeej’ shared some clues as to what to expect.

“[Players will go] on a journey to distant lands, where the strength of their spirits will blossom, and their devotion to the gods will be tested. They will run into some familiar friends of the past, and encounter new enemies from far-off kingdoms, all in the hopes to revel under the blood moon with the friends they have chosen along the way,” he shared.

It looks like Riot stayed true to the spirits theme. TFT Fates features a number of champions from Ionia, Runeterra’s spiritual heartland. Origins like Ninja have made their return, having been benched since Set 1.

When does TFT Fates release?

As expected, TFT Set 4 will be live following the conclusion of TFT Set 3. TFT Galaxies is set to wrap up on September 16, which means that Fates will arrive in Patch 10.19 on September 16.

That means we can expect TFT Set 4 to launch on the PBE after Patch 10.18 goes live on September 2. There will then be a two-week test period where Riot will finetune balancing before the full release to everyone with Patch 10.19.

The new set will run for six months ⁠— all the way through to April 2021. Riot also confirmed a Mid-Set update, similar to the one that ran in TFT Galaxies, would make its entrance in January. More details on that will be available soon.

Riot dev responds to bizarre Rengar damage bug in League of Legends

A Riot developer has responded to players’ concerns after a strange critical strike damage bug was found with Rengar’s abilities in League of Legends.

With over 150 unique champions in League of Legends and mid lane mage Seraphine also on the way, there are now plenty of characters with different playstyles to master.

However, one of the most unusual champions in the game is Rengar for his strange interactions with the terrain on summoner’s rift, as fans of the Pridestalker can make use of brushes on the map to leap towards opponents with each basic attack.

Rengar’s ability to stack up Ferocity with each attack can make the assassin quite deadly to unsuspecting opponents, as players will gain an empowered attack when his Ferocity bar is maxed out.

While this empowered ability is supposed to add even more damage to his potential combo, Rengar mains have noticed a strange bug with the champ that would prevent any Critical Strike damage from being included on his empowered Q ability.

After it was first discovered, LoL player u/Bendzsike tested the bug and revealed that Rengar’s Q ability could actually deal more damage while the ability was not empowered, despite the fact that Crit items like Phantom Dancer are commonly seen as an item in Rengar’s build path.

Once this bug was found to make items with extra Critical Strike stats less useful for the champion, players reached out to Riot devs, asking them to address this bizarre damage issue.

Riot developer August Browning, who worked on Rengar’s rework in Season 8, responded confirming that it was definitely a bug and that they would work on fixing it in an upcoming patch.

“Another Rengar bug. It’s probably my fault too,” he responded jokingly, confirming his plans to work on a fix, “I’ll go fix this while crying.”

While Riot is now aware of this new Rengar bug, it is unclear just when this patch will be rolled out on live servers. So, it might be best to stick with Rengar’s lethality build until it has been fixed.
