An abnormally large Teamfight Tactics 12.5 B-patch will last three weeks and shape the meta for upcoming tournaments, the auto battler’s devs have said.

Following the release of Patch 12.5, reroll comps took over the TFT meta, along with flex builds around the Innovator and Debonair traits. Patch 12.5 was set to last four weeks, with the 12.6 update not taking place until March 30. Due to the extended length of time and multiple tournaments to be played across the globe in March, however, over 20 nerfs and a few buffs were included in the TFT 12.5 B-patch.

Despite the number of nerfs and buffs, the changes getting applied should not disrupt the TFT Set 6.5 meta in a way that comps become unplayable. A majority of the nerfs are minor ones, meant to tone down traits and champions while providing a healthy amount of counterplay. 

Here’s every nerf and buff in the Set 6.5 TFT 12.5 B-patch, according to Riot.
