Things are going fast with Teamfight Tactics, and updates are constantly raining on the Convergence. However, this one is kind of special since it adds to the game a new rarity system for loot boxes: the Mystery Boxes. Yeas, you read it well: you might have the chance to drop an Epic loot box instead of the rubbish Common on. Some might argue that this change is another RNG factor within a game environment that's already swarmed with it, and they might not be completely wrong about that. The question remains and requires further testing...
You might have noticed that Demons were lately ruling the Convergence — since almost all Tier S compositions were playing around them. Well, things might change quickly since Patch 9.18 brings a lot of balance changes. Traits, champions, items — we summarize everything in this article.
This patch is going to shake things up, so get ready to re-learn (once again) how the meta works!
