TFT patch 14.3b – Heartsteel nerf and Scrappy Inventions fix

With regional finals across the world and the Set 10 world championship coming up, TFT patch 14.3b released to make minor improvements!

Teamfight Tactics lead designer Stephen "Mortdog" Mortimer just announced that TFT patch 14.3b is live. This is meant to be a small change to improve player experience and balance for upcoming important tournaments globally.

What's in TFT Patch 14.3b?

Bug fixes

  • Scrappy Inventions now works as intended, granting components at the start of the next two stages
  • Guinsoo's Rageblade stacks will not occasionally reset when a summon occurs in combat (i.e. Yorick ghouls)

For Mortdog's explanation on all the changes, refer to his X post below.

This is meant to be MICROSCOPIC in terms of changing the meta, and mostly bug fixes.

Mortdog, Lead Designer for Teamfight Tactics

The meta during TFT patch 14.3b should look the same as patch 14.3b, but the bug fixes and slight nerfs should nudge the game in a slightly more enjoyable and balanced direction. This is the patch that many regions will be playing either their final tournaments before regional final tournaments or their regional finals.

Upcoming tournaments on TFT patch 14.3b

  • Brazil (BR) - ProLegends Finals (Regional Finals tournament)
  • Latin America (LATAM) - Remix Rumble Playoffs
  • Southeast Asia (SEA) - Road to SEA Finals
  • Korea (KR) - East Asia Korean Qualifier
  • Oceania (OCE) - Last Chance Qualifier, True Damage Cup

The above tournaments are all leading into their respective regions' regional finals, apart from Brazil. Additionally, with TFT patch 14.4 scheduled to release on February 22, it is still undetermined whether patch 14.3b or 14.4 will be the patch for Regional Final tournaments in regions around the world such as China and Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
