Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.20 looks to keep things simple after 9.19’s monster update.

With the end of TFT Set one approaching, Riot is trying to stabilize the meta with some classes and champions that got a bit out of control. The Wild Assassin comp, with Akali at its forefront, will likely be null and void after nerfs to the champions, traits, and items that made the combo so effective. The powerful Knight class will also shed some of its armor thanks to nerfs that target its late-game effectiveness.

Here are the full notes for Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.20.
