Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Patch 10.7 Preview – Dark Star and Mana Reaver Changed, A “Ton” of Balance Changes Incoming on April 1st

The Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies Patch 10.7 will go live next week on Wednesday, April 1st, and since it’s the first patch after the new set was launched, it will obviously bring a ton of balance changes. Moreover, the TFT team has decided to rework the origins Mana-Reaver and Dark Star.

Before we head over to the current changes in the current PBE patch, let’s take a look at what the Principal Game Designer at Riot Games & Lead Designer of Teamfight Tactics, Riot Mort had revealed in his Twitter thread regarding future changes and the state of the current meta:

“Next patch is 10.7 on April 1st. While we understand the sentiment about 5-costs & Rebel comp, we are seeing a healthy meta shift at all levels of play, and other options being successful. We’d like to let this patch run its course.

That being said, tomorrow you’ll see a BUNCH of balance changes coming to PBE. We’ve gotten some great data/feedback from the first week and hope to continue to improve the state of the game. We’re also looking into more systemic changes like Player Damage, Gold, and Streaks.” –source

Game Changes

While those “Player Damage, Gold, and Streaks” haven’t been revealed in the patch preview shared by Teamfight Tactics official Twitter page (image can be seen below), we’re expecting for SOME of those teased Galaxies to arrive with Patch 10.7.

We’re talking about the possibility that each game to take place in a random Galaxy. Here are the galaxies teased before TFT: Galaxies got released. Some of these galaxies have appeared in PBE and Riot told us that 10.7 will probably bring forth two of the following Galaxies (besides the Normal Game):

  • Trade Sector: All players receive one free reroll per round. Free rerolls cannot be saved up.
  • Bonanza!: All players start with 3 random components and 10 gold.
  • Fixed Income: Players are given exactly 8 gold to spend each round. Unspent gold is lost.
  • Not So Little Legends: Little Legends are larger with 125 health.
  • Manatee’s Delight: All players receive a free Spatula at the start of the game.
  • Normal Game: No special rules.
