TFT patch 12.12b: a very welcome fix

TFT patch 12.12b

Only one week after the last patch, Riot Games has announced TFT patch 12.12b release. Intermediate patches are usually minor and aim at fixing bugs and adjusting some statistics. This time, we have a patch that is just as important as the main one, if not more. Let's take a look at the changes to champions, traits and items in this update.

TFT patch 12.12b: a larger than usual intermediate patch

Despite an impressive patch 12.12, its impact did not have the desired effect. Indeed, the best compositions TFTs of set 7 have not really changed. Less than a dozen compositions are actually playable and the gap between them and all the others is far too big. That's why TFT patch 12.12b is more important than the usual intermediate patches with the letter b. Let's find out the details of these changes.

TFT patch 12.12b: Lee Sin

TFT patch 12.12b: traits changes

The most significant changes are to Assassins with the change to the way the jump works and the Diana nerf. Dracomancers also get a trait nerf and some units, like Lee Sin and Swain, to reduce the impact of compositions TFT with 6 Dracomancers. With Cannoneers buff, it is Corki who will make a comeback among the most contested units. For their part, Astrals had suffered from the recent patches. To compensate, this 12.12b patch makes them easier to find in the shop, and thus to upgrade to 3 stars.

TFT patch 12.12b: Champions changes

The most impacted champions in the TFT meta with patch 12.12b are Xayah, Swain and Ornn, who are overused. Corki also suffers a nerf, but this is offset by Cannoneers buff and Revel trait changes. After suffering a huge nerf, Sylas ' shield has been adjusted and Sy'Fen benefits from a buff, which may make composition Whispers more effective.
