EB24 about TFT – Patch 12.20 analysis by AceOfSpades

This patch has been brutal! Many comps have been nerfed to the ground and some new comps have taken their place.

In my opinion, the game will be very force heavy as only a few comps will be considered top-tier. Expect most of the lobby to fight over 2 or 3 comps.

Biggest changes:

  1. Water Gun, Graves, and his friends are not at the top of the food chain anymore. They still remain A tier but I would avoid playing them as much as possible.

  2. Guild Xaya is a comp that can now be called Zippy and Shyvana. Xaya is now too weak to be the main carry. People usually will either play Deja+guild or Shyvana+guild.

  3. Mage Nomsy remains okay but is no longer the bomb as before.

  4. Sohm has been pretty much removed from meta. You very rarely see it now.

  5. Soy and Sy’Fen will now dominate this patch.

Best Comps

Guild Flex

Starting item: Bow, build Rage Blade AS.

Early game: Playing Ezreal plus some Guild and a Lee Sin is usually your best chance.

This comp can be played mostly in 2 different ways. Now you have the choice between Deja+Nunu or Shyvana+Hecarim.


Starting item: Belt or Chain Vest - I prefer to build defensive items first for this comp and focus on damage items after..

Early game: Play bruisers or jade opener.

For the best comp of the patch you can roll at 7 and you have 4 units that are 4 cost carries to hit; Jayce, Soy, Sy’Fen, Jayce. They are all good carries and you itemize whoever you hit first.

Age of Dragons

Best comp to play if you can get to 9 with good hp and gold. It’s simply the highest scaling comp. The problem is obviously to make it to that point, having a strong early game is the most important thing. Be sure to slam your items early and hard to increase your chance of being in a good position at level 9.

Early game: WIN WIN WIN

Starting Item: I think opening belt and building sunfire is the best for win streak.
