Lead game designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer has given fans a sneak peek of all the changes coming to Teamfight Tactics in Patch 10.13 days ahead of its official release on Wednesday, June 24.

It may be the first balance patch of the mid-season, but it includes a number of trait, champion, and unit changes, targeting a few of the game’s usual suspects.

Riot is “quite happy” with the meta established in Patch 10.12, according to Mort. But a few things are still “out of line.”

Here’s the full list of updates for Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.13.

New Galaxy

Binary Star
