TFT 10.6 (Set 3) Patch Notes – Buffs, Nerfs, & More!

We're taking a look at the Teamfight Tactics Set 3 (10.6) Patch Notes that will be bringing some buffs, nerfs, and general changes to the game. This is the patch that will bring all of the new champions and big item changes from the new set. That means it will almost be like a whole new game! They are also making changes to the carousel, incoming, player damage, combat, items, and even swapping out and adding a few new items.

TFT Set 3 Patch Release Date

The 10.6 Patch is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. We've got a full look at all of the new champions and traits with our TFT Set 3 Champions Guide! We've also got TFT Cheat Sheets so you can get familiar with everything.

TFT Set 3 Official Patch Notes

RANKED

  • The Galaxies' ranked season will start immediately with the launch of this patch.
  • There is no longer any rank decay below Master.
  • You also cannot decay out of Master. We hope you'll keep trying for the top, but we don't want TFT to feel like a daily obligation with a big penalty hammer attached.

SYSTEM

Lots of changes here, in fact we wrote a whole article about it.

IN THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS CLIENT

Things might look a little different as TFT is getting a new hub. Below we'll share some of the new features and things to look for:


Galaxies Pass

Learn more about pass, Little Legends, and Arenas here.

  • You will now see the current pass and your progression towards rewards.
  • You can also Galaxies Pass+ to access premium content and receive the UFO Sprite at any time. Rewards are granted retroactively if you’ve passed levels already, don't worry about buying it right away.
  • All rewards in the pass are now browseable and have descriptions. Fancy.
  • Level and XP tracker is specified on the left-hand side.
  • TFT missions can be easily accessed by clicking the button in the top right corner. This will also showcase the number of available Missions.
  • New weekly missions to gain XP towards the pass.
  • The Orb is gone. In addition to missions you'll also be rewarded XP for just playing games.
  • This is also where you will claim rewards from the pass.
  • You will now see the time remaining for the event.
  • There's now a new content line-up at the bottom of the hub, you'll see things like news, patch notes, dev thoughts, purchasable Arenas, Little Legends, and Booms.

Lobby

  • The new Booms can now be selected within the parties screen
  • The loadouts screen has been updated to support them as well.
  • In the lobby you'll be able to track TFT related missions that will giveXP towards your pass by opening the button to the right of their player card.

Other Stuff

  • Don't be surprised if you see an introduction that explains the new Galaxy Pass the first time you enter the new hub. Patch Notes readers like yourself will surely not need this introduction, but check it out anyway, just for me.
  • If you bought the Galaxies Pass+, you can earn additional rewards once you've completed it. Their XP prices are pretty far out there and are meant for those that play A LOT of TFT.
