Teamfight Tactis Set 5: Reckoning patched PBE, bringing tentative balance changes.
Season 5: Reckoning has been on PBE for the last month with various new features. The general public seems satisfied because Season 4 has been dragging on for a bit. As the release date approaches in less than a week, the game makes a few changes before the official release.
TFT Set 5: Reckoning 11.9 PBE Patch Notes
The PBE patch happened April 20 with changes in the following area:
- Hyper Roll
- Minor Bug fixes
Let us take a closer look at major changes. For the full patch note, see Riot's official 4/20 PBE Update article.
The April 20 PBE patch removed the two gold per win payout and added a two gold per loss payout.
Hyper Roll is a new game mod coming this season. Players start with 10 health, and love one health per defeat. Experience cannot be bought with money, and rolls costs health. This would require different gameplay from original ranked queue with a faster phase estimated 15 minutes per game. See Teamfight Tactics: Hyper Roll on Riot's official website for detailed information about Hyper Roll.
Traits and Champions
With the new season comes new traits and champions. A few new members include Draven and Viego, a part of the Forgotten champions. Another interesting champion is Little Devil Teemo where he takes health and not coins to be recruited. The list of traits and champions is found in the Trait Overview Cheatsheet released by the official Teamfight Tactics Twitter.
The shop roll odds for Level seven and eight has both decreased.
Spatula spawn rates on the carousel has been adjusted in stage two, three and four at the rate of 45%.
A total of 19 items have gone through changes in patch April 20.
Shadow items went through changes, where most items were weakened other than the Shadow Blue Buff and the Shadow Hextech Gunblade. More information about Shadow items can be found in the Reckoning Gameplay Overview by Riot.
The develop team continues to work on Teamfight Tactics to release Season 5: Reckoning. Players can be excited for a balanced gameplay on April 27 when the new season officially starts.
