The final Teamfight Tactics patch before 2020 introduces a new units and the Soulbound trait, buffs and nerfs some outliers, and makes some necessary quality of life adjustments.

Patch 9.24 marks the debut of Amumu and Senna to the Convergence, along with Lucian’s return as a Soulbound Light unit. And pesky Singed players may be disappointed—the Alchemist is taking a hit which should balance him out among the competition. Light units finally get some love, and Interface updates should improve quality of life and the matchmaking experience.

Here are the full Teamfight Tactics 9.24 patch notes.
