Less than 24 hours into the launch of Teamfight Tactics Set 6.5 Neon Nights on the PBE, several champions are already receiving significant balance changes.

The first PBE update for Set 6.5 took place today, resulting in a large chunk of downtime due to extended maintenance. When the update completes later today, players will get to test out a number of balance changes taking place that focus on three to five-cost champions. Rek’Sai, Swain, and Talon were the only two-cost TFT Set 6.5 champions who got balance changes, while five-cost units like Jinx and Zeri had multiple levers adjusted.
