A new Teamfight Tactics update is coming soon, as Patch 13.7 will do a little more work on the new Set.

Teamfight Tactics has gotten a big popularity burst since its inception. The fact that Riot invested a lot of their game modes staff to get TFT up and running shows how much they care about this auto-battler strategy game. This led to multiple updates that improved gameplay and a variety of different Sets to change how the game worked from a player’s perspective.

Patch 13.6 introduce Glitched Out, the latest Set in TFT. This released new team traits, augments, little legends, and cosmetics for arenas and characters. New traits like Infiniteams, Riftwalker, Quickshot, and Parallel were introduced alongside changes to the existing sets.

To follow up, Patch 13.6B was also released to do several touch-ups to balance the game. In light of that, Patch 13.7 is heading to TFT soon, as this is the first major update since the new Set. Let’s talk about all of what’s coming in this new patch.

TFT Patch 13.7 Notes

There are a lot of changes coming in Patch 13.7 across the board. Hero Augments, Traits, Champions and such are getting changes. Here are all of them as follows.

System Changes

Starting with System changes, there is a small change coming as part of adapting the game loop. This one will change how items are distributed as the variance is being changed. By Round 5, Stage 1, everyone will get 6 full items. It is a massive change considering it will help the low-rollers a lot and hopefully make games more competitive.

  • You are now guaranteed a minimum of six full items by 5-1.

Traits

As per usual, Traits are being balanced by the dev team. This is a constantly changing system that requires fine-tuning as meta pop up. This time around, Lasercorps, Gadgeteen, Quickdraw and Sureshot are some of the major changes. Here are all the trait updates for Patch 13.7.
