Teamfight Tactics - Fates 2020

Riot Games TFT Teamfight Tactics Support – A group of Little Legends Tacticians living in harmony amongst the clouds.

Furyhorn. Hauntling. Silverwing. Long ago, these Little Legends lived in harmony… until everything changed when we decided to shake up the game and call in reinforcements! From Featherknights to Nixies, from Elements to Galaxies, the stars have aligned to bring Teamfight Tactics to this miraculous moment. A new stage has been set, new champions have emerged, and your destiny has been decided. TFT: Fates has arrived. Don’t leave anything to chance! You can learn more in the /dev post over here!

Fates brings the magic to TFT on September 16th, 2020 at 11:00 AM (PT), and will be summoning spirits and divining destruction until April 26th, 2021 at 11:00 AM (PT). The start of a new set means the beginning of a new season, which means all the Little Legends, arena skins, and Fates Pass shenanigans you've been dreaming of. Get out your grimoires and channel your champions. It's time to delve deeper into Teamfight Tactics: Fates.

Fates Pass

Magical. Mystical. Mythical. And big. Did we mention big? We don't wanna wax poetic about the pass mechanics here, so be sure to check out the TFT: Fates Pass FAQ. Spoilers, but there may be some lucky Little Legends waiting to be unlocked.

Choose Your Chosen

The Chosen champion Warring Kingdoms Garen in TFT.

It's time to get picky with your protagonists in a mechanic unique to Fates: the Chosen. Not unlike the Mercenaries of old, you'll sometimes encounter unique units in the store. These Chosen champs will already be at a 2-star level (and their cost will reflect that). One of the unit's traits will be chosen as, well, Chosen, which means they will count for two of that particular trait! Keep in mind that the affected trait will be selected at random. They'll also gain extra HP and a unique stat bonus. You can learn more about the mechanic (and some of the new traits) here.

Little Legends

Fates is full of unparalleled wonders. You know what that means? If you said adorable dragon companions, you'd be correct! Three new Little Legends are here to make your spirit soar (and crave snacks, in Choncc’s case). You can purchase a Heroic Hatchlings egg for 490 RP. Remember, you can bundle up as well (5 Heroic Hatchling eggs for 2450 RP, or get 10 for 4900 RP, and you'll get an extra egg for free). You can also directly purchase your dragons, though RP will vary based on rarity of the variant. Prices will vary by region if you're playing on mobile, so be sure to check the store for the must accurate information!

Don't forget to check out the TFT: Fates Pass FAQ to see the unique Little Legends you can earn as you play through the pass.
