TFT’s 12.14 B-patch patch sharpens the current meta by toning down on the 10-cost champion changes released last week.
Heavy on bug-fixes and nerfs for 10-cost dragon champions Shyvana and Aurelion Sol, the newest balance patch seeks to open up early and late-game options for TFT players. Lead Champion Designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer revealed the notes for the mid-week patch scheduled to hit live servers on Wednesday. With several TFT tournaments on the horizon, including the Jade Cup, Riot’s developer team are working to ensure a stable playable meta ahead of competitive play.

“The goal is to hopefully have a more open early game, and more options in the late game while still keeping the dragons as strong finishers” stated Riot Mortdog on Twitter. Riot’s TFT team revealed their game of making earlier buffed dragons as viable options still. Players should note that the changes may vary upon live server release. The patch also ships bug fixes for Jinx’s Ragewing along with a fix for Astral’s planning phase glitch. TFT’s 12.14 B-patch is slated to hit servers at 12 pm PT on Wednesday, August 3.
