Patch Notes

July 7, 2020

Welcome Space Sorcerers!

We're porting over to patch 10.14 where we'll be making some pretty significant changes. Here are the highlights: We're nerfing the Star Guardian trait, but buffing Star Guardian champions themselves. Urgot is getting a "minor" rework, and boxes with Neeko's Help will now also contain gold. Last but not least, TFT turned one year old last week! In celebration, we're giving out special Birthday Pengu emotes to anyone that plays a game of TFT this patch.

Let's get into it!

Highlights

Systems

Neeko Boxes

It often punishes your economy when you get a Neeko's help from a Blue or Gold box, especially early in the game. So we’re adding gold rewards to those boxes that drop Neeko's.
  • Blue Box: Neeko ⇒ Neeko + 2 Coins
  • Gold Box: Neeko + 3 Coins ⇒ Neeko + 5 Coins

Ties

Your final position in the standings will now be determined once all combat has ended, instead of immediately upon taking lethal damage. Lethal damage will now take players into negative health. Players who are eliminated in the same round will finish in order of:
  • Least negative health total.
  • If negative health is tied, most health in the round prior to elimination.
  • In the unlikely event that both of the previous measures are tied (!), the final standings for those tied players will be determined randomly.

Galaxies

  • New Galaxy: Dwarf Planet - The first and last row of every board is disabled.
  • Removed Galaxy: Little Little Legends.

Traits

Star Guardians

Star Guardians have too much of its power budget in the trait, so we’re pulling that power out and putting it back into the champions. This should allow some of them to succeed in other comps while maintaining the power of well-built Star Guardian compositions.

Urgot

Urgot's getting a lot of changes and so....his own little section. From a balance perspective Urot is currently one of the weaker 5-cost champions, however he feels bad to play against and there's not enough incentive for the Urgot player to level him up.

  • Time to reel the enemy in now scales with Star Level.
  • Reel Duration: 1.5 sec ⇒ 3/2/1 second(s)

Items

  • Ionic Spark Magic Resist shred: 50% ⇒ 40%

Bugfixes
