Teamfight Tactics 12.8 Patch Notes: Syndicate Rising, Mutant Falling

A few small changes to the meta are coming in the 12.8 patch.

Comments

The Teamfight Tactics 12.8 patch notes have been released, and there's not much changing as TFT heads towards its seventh expansion in the coming months.

The 12.8 patch falls in an awkward place in TFT's lifecycle, as the Gizmos and Gadgets World Championships will be sticking with the 12.7 patch while Set Seven will be added alongside 12.9. As such, the adjustments made here are mostly minor, though Mutant players may want to pay attention.

Tier 5 Jinx saw a slight change in the Teamfight Tactics 12.8 patch.

The biggest winners in the 12.8 patch are champions with Syndicate traits, as armor, magic resistance, and bonus amplification are all increasing. Mutant traits take the biggest hit, as both Cybernetic Enhancement and Voracious Appetite are being scaled back, the former in overall health and the latter in attack damage and ability power. The full Teamfight Tactics 12.8 patch notes is below.

Teamfight Tactics is a tactical auto battler set in the League of Legends universe. It is available now on iOS, Android, and PC.
