TFT patch notes 13.24b/13.25: Level 9 nerfs and more

Here’s what you should expect in TFT patch 13.24b/13.25 and what to know about the upcoming changes.

While the Teamfight Tactics Vegas Open was a massive success, the patch going into the event was rather light so as not to create too many drastic meta shifts. For the holidays, the balance team is looking to put the meta in an even healthier and fun spot for players to enjoy.

Here are all the changes you should look out for in TFT patch 13.24b/13.25! The patch is 13.24b/13.25 because it includes changes that would have been in 13.24 if it weren't for the TFT Vegas Open, and is as big as a full patch.

All changes can be found on the Lead Designer's X account.

Systems changes in TFT patch 13.24b/13.25

Level 9 Headliner Odds

  • Legendary Headliner odds reduced from 0/0/0/90/10% to 0/0/0/98/2%

This was a change that was planned to happen but not implemented in 13.24 because of how meta-shifting it could be for the Vegas open. Fast 9 for legendary headliner is effectively weaker due to the drastic reduction in odds for 13.24b/13.25.
