Riot revealed a first look at the Teamfight Tactics 10.13 tentative patch changes tonight, containing a number of buffs and nerfs to traits, champions, and items. 

The first balance changes for Teamfight Tactics mid-season will drop next week with the 10.13 update, following a hotfix on June 12 that adjusted Protector Shield and Aurelion Sol. There a good amount of positive changes that may take place in the upcoming patch that include a much-needed buff to Battlecast and Dark Star, along with a nerf to Master Yi. But don’t worry Blademaster lovers, the comp should survive. 

Medium Legends Galaxy is taking a break with the TFT 10.13 update, making room for Binary Star. Most players aren’t too upset over Medium Galaxies getting the boot, considering the length of time it took to play. And the Binary Star galaxy is said to challenge players in a new and unique way.

A nerf to Jinx is somewhat surprising, leaving some to wonder how it will affect Rebels and Brawlin’ Blasters. The same can be said for Riven, who’s seen success in Six-Sorcerers and Six- Blademasters.

Vayne seems to have escaped a nerf but Cybernetics didn’t, which could possibly knock the comp out of S-tier status. Mystic will also get dinged, along with Cassiopeia, possibly scaling back the prominent Vanguard/Mystic comp.
