Patch 14.8B of TFT: Emergency Nerfs to Kai’Sa and Gnar

Patch 14.8B of TFT: Emergency Nerfs to Kai’Sa and Gnar

22. April 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

Teamfight Tactics version 14.8 introduces significant adjustments to the meta, particularly focusing on 4-cost champions. Riot is set to enhance almost all 4-cost champions, significantly impacting their gameplay in the current meta.

The previous TFT patch, 14.7, along with the initial stages of Set 11, established a clear meta revolving around specific compositions, with the dominance of 3-cost champions becoming evident.

Champions like Yone, Volibear, Bard, or Tristana exemplify powerful 3-cost champions, especially when upgraded to three stars, becoming unstoppable and pivotal in various compositions. This trend, however, hasn’t entirely pleased Riot Mortdog, leading to potential changes in the upcoming version.

In the anticipated changes outlined by Riot, a significant adjustment might shake up the meta: the enhancement of all 4-cost champions, which could potentially reshape the meta given the already strong performance of many of them.
