6/27/2019 Responsiveness Pass and Rammus Bugfix
6/26/2019 Jarvan IV Bugfix
Teamfight Tactics will be coming in 9.13 to players all over the world! Play against seven opponents in a free-for-all race to build a powerful team that fights on your behalf and be the last one standing.
As a reminder, the mode is still in beta! Players may experience bugs during their time in Teamfight Tactics, but we’d appreciate reports as well as general feedback on it. We’re here to build this new mode with you.
We’ll also be monitoring server health throughout its run in 9.13 and make note of potential balance changes based on what we see and hear from you. For more information, please check out the official Teamfight Tactics website!

(A note from Shio Shoujo: Y’all knew it was coming. We’re nerfing my baby girl.)
While it may seem like we’re doing this just because of the in-vogue bot lane Sona, she’s been extremely close to our thresholds for acceptable win rates (outlined in our Balance Framework that you should go read if you haven’t already) in solo queue for awhile and is the most commonly banned bot lane champion in pro play right now.
We’re also seeing more than just Sona with Taric, mind you. We’re seeing Sona and Tahm Kench, Sona and Pyke, etc. which points toward specifically nerfing her rather than Taric. To be clear, we’re not explicitly trying to kill Sona + XX bot lanes: Even if she were a standard bot carry, she’d still be deserving of a nerf on multiple fronts.

E – Song of Celerity
