In March, Teamfight Tactics will undergo a significant revamp with a brand new set.
As with Rise of the Elements, Riot Games promises new traits, champions, skins, boards, and Little Legends. However, what will truly revolutionize the League of Legends auto-battler is the arrival of a whole new mechanic: Galaxies.
Following the removal of Elementary Hexes, Riot Games has decided to introduce a new system, allowing "more variety" while requiring players to express "even more adaptability".
With Galaxies, some of your TFT games "will take you to another galaxy where the rules will be slightly different." You'll still be able to play with the standard rules, but there will be no way of knowing what galaxy you're in when queueing. In other words, players will all simultaneously discover that they have been transported to another universe when the game starts.
For now, Riot Games have only given us two examples of what we can expect from Galaxies: the Neekoverse, and the "4-gold carousel" (apparently, the name isn't confirmed).
With the Neekoverse, you'll find yourself in a galaxy where all players start the game with two Neeko's Help, while the "4-gold carousel" will transport you to a game where the first carousel only contains Tier 4 champions.
Riot Games have remained quiet as to what other rules will soon apply to TFT games. However, they're planning on implementing "10 different galaxies", while specifying that "some might also disappear".
Reading between the lines, this seems to imply that Riot will consider rotation in the game, as Blizzard has done with expansions in Hearthstone.
