LoL TFT: Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.15 brings Demon nerfs and Knight buffs!
Update: 7/31 Micropatch Changes

Akali's spell now properly crits 25% of the time, down from always
Ionic Spark now works properly against Assassins on an away board
Cho'Gath spell damage reverted to 200/400/600
Mordekaiser's HP properly set to 550
Thornmail's damage type has been changed from True damage to Magic damage
• Fixed a bug where a single Frozen Heart could apply multiple stacks of its debuff

Patch 9.15 just hit the live servers of Teamfight Tactics a few days after being teased by Riot Mort. From champions to items balances, the least we can say is that the current meta is once again upside down. Demons have been hit by a massive nerf, while Knights got a great buffing rework.

It's still too early to claim the meta is a tank one, but something in us smells that Brawlers and Knights will soon spread and swarm the ladder as Demons did last week.
