Is Locket stacking OP?
It seems like even though they killed Sorcerer Lockets people are Locket stacking more than ever. The extra 900 on 5 of your champions makes it so that you can go full carry without having to figure out how to include a front line in your comp. Stuff like 6 assassins Locket stacked is insanely powerful because it eliminates assassins' biggest weakness. What do you guys think about Locket right now?
Can't press play? How to FIX gray play button bug
Last couple of days a large number of TFT players have reported that the play button in the client is grayed out and they cannot press play. Apparently there is a very quick and easy fix to this bug. Let me show you how:

2. Press the play button in the top left corner
3. Choose PvP option from the sub-header menu.
4. Click the TfT icon on the right and make sure to select "ranked"
5. Press Confirm at the bottom

JoshOG wins TFT Showdown!
JoshOG is your TFT Showdown winner! JoshOG started the day out with the Volibear carry that he pioneered and it was the very same Volibear that ultimately got him the win. In an insane unexpected play, JoshOG double ghostbladed his Volibear expecting the second one to pop off. Instead of popping off however, both ghostblades stayed on Volibear and granted him double assassin bonuses! This meant that Volibear was hitting for over 1k every auto. What a great tournament, congrats to JoshOG!
Announcing the Teamfight Tactics Simulator!
Good morning Teamfight Tacticians! We’re introducing a sweet tool to the Teamfight Tactics lounge today that we think you’ll really love. It’s the Teamfight Tactics Simulator!

We’ve also been sure to include all the necessary info you may forget, like Champion costs and what buffs the different combinations of Champions give.

NEWS: Ranked Party Size now Lowered from 5 to 3
After testing out TFT's new ranked mode on the LOL PBE, Riot has lowered the number of players that can queue up together from 5 to 3 at all ranks.
Ran Cao, a data scientist for Riot, confirmed the news a day from the release of V9.14.
Ran Cao says that "due to some concerns", the party size restriction will be locked to 3 players. These concerns were however not specified but it might have to do with the fact that these 5 players can help each other out in games to gain more LP and rank up quickly. She also stated that Riot will be evaluating more restrictions as players rank higher up the ladder.
By lowering the party size to 3, Riot is giving other players who aren't partied up a fight chance to win. This will also lower the chance for people to push and pull games in their favor.
TFT Patch 9.14 - 5 Key Points
1. From now on, TFT will patch EVERY WEEK.
TFT will now update every week according to Riot. There will be 2 types of updates. Larger updates will take place during regular League of Legends patches while smaller updates will happen in the weeks between that should bring less substantial changes to the mode.
2. Twisted Fate is here
This 2 gold Pirate Sorcerer was the first new champion to be added to TFT. Twisted Fate will randomly pick 1 of 3 cards and throw it at his target. A red card deals AoE damage, a yellow card stuns the target, a blue card restores mana.
3. Attack speed works differently now.
Attack speed is now calculated from a percentage of the champion's base attack speed. So champions with lower base attack speed will benefit less from speed items.
4. The way you get items is different now.
Every PVE round will now drop minimum of 1 reward (items or gold).
5. Spatula got a whole lot better.
Spatula now doubles the stat of the item it's placed with.
