The upcoming Teamfight Tactics micropatch won’t be so “micro.”

TFT lead designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer gave fans a Patch 9.24b rundown yesterday, explaining the vast amount of changes hitting the Convergence. The Dec. 18 micropatch will be more extensive than usual because the developers want the autobattler to be in a stable place during the lull of the holidays.

Here are all the changes coming in TFT’s Patch 9.24b.

Three-star units

The hyperroll strategy has been dominating the TFT meta. Players reroll as many times as possible to level their low-cost units into three-star monsters. To curb that, the developers are nerfing the base stats of three-star units.

  • Three-star scaling changed from doubling a two-star unit’s health and attack damage to multiplying it by 1.8.

For example:

  • Nasus’ health changed from 650/1,170/2,340 to 650/1,170/2,106.
  • Nasus’ attack damage changed from 50/90/180 to 50/90/162.

This should allow Riot to bring more power to abilities without having to worry about base stats dominating the meta.
