14.3B patch note:

https://www.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/news/game-updates/teamfight-tactics-patch-14-3-notes/

Hello everyone, I’m Khym!

With Patch 14.3B just around the corner, I’m here to provide you with some key highlights about the upcoming changes.

I provide a tier list by collecting data from MetaTFT (not my personal feeling), modify a bit base on how comfortable to play it (contesting problem) to make it as accurate as possible.

[TLDR] 14.3 Tier list

S Tier. Easy top 4, easy top 1 with capped board:

  • 6 8-Bit Riven (with an Emblem) not broken anymore

A Tier. Easy top 4, can win with good synergy:

  • AD flex (the best capped lv 9 board)
  • Zhonya Jax (insanely good with Zhonya, B tier without)
  • Punk Jinx (can win with Punk Emblem)
  • Country Samira & Urgot (can win with Country Emblem)

A- tier. Riskier top 4, easier top 1 with stronger capped board:

  • Spellweaver Lulu# (need a strong frontline)
  • Crowd Diver Yone## (extremely high contested)
  • That Jazz baby Bard/MF## (A+ tier with any 3* Neeko/Ekko)
  • Lux Bruiser (need full AP item, no mana regen)
  • True Damage Yasuo
  • True Damage Senna
  • Disco TF (harder top 4, easier top 1)

B tier (2.8~3.1 avg placement). Top 2-4 with strong synergy, still possible to win:

  • Crowd Diver Katarina
  • KDA Seraphine
  • 8-Bit Riven (S tier with 6 8-Bit on Viego)
  • 4 Emo Annie reroll
  • 4/6 Executioner with 4/2 Guardian#
  • Twin Terror (4 Executioner or 4 Guardian)
  • Sentinel Kayle (slightly contested)
  • Ahri flex (7 KDA or Poppy)
  • Sentinel Ahri
  • Pentakill flex (Pentakill + Edgelord headliner)

C tier. Top 4 comps:

  • Pentakill Kayle (3* Kayle and Morde is a pain), B tier if success
  • Pentakill 4 Executioner
  • Bruiser Olaf (B tier with Gargantuan Resolve, normally don't choose to stay top 4 at 2-1)

(*) High contested reroll comp, in reality their placement is a bit worst

For enthusiasm want to see detailed stats (avg, % top 4, % win rate, my filter at MetaTFT...):

For a brief guide to every comps, I already made in this post, in future I'll always link it and update suitably with the meta, write everything again is a real pain TvT

AD Flex with Ezreal, Zed and Caitlyn

Riot remove extra 1, 2 Thief golves from Heartsteel in late game, not broken anymore but its still a great comp.

Due to being highly contested right now Its recommended to play with a good econ to hit lv 8 at 4-2, if not other will pick headliner before you can buy any. Worst case you can switch to Caitlyn headliner.

There are many things to talk about this comp so I put a summary map here and a detailed guide for who interested.

Zhonya Jax

A comp you shouldn't miss when seeing Zhonya at 2-1

Game plan: hit 3* Jax at lv 6 then rush lv 9 to complete your comp, lv 8 you might want to roll a bit for 1 STAR Zac and Zed. If you hit 3 star Jax so late, stay at lv 8.

Give reduntdant AP items on Lux (prefer Shiv > Spark)

Jax EDM: Put EDM selector on Jax, thanks to Jax ability putting Lux in 2nd line will jump to the highest HP in 5 hexes (Lux has 4 range)

Punk

I bet you already know how to play this comp so I give a small advice, always put Punk emblem on Poppy, she is the only unit in this set both scale with AD and HP from Punk

With 4/6 Punk, 20% HP from Sterak give more HP than Warmog

Country

Unless you can put extra 2 Executioner somehow, there is no reason to hit lv 8. Stay at lv 7 to golden the whole team, when 3* without item they do nearly nothing. You must play Country with lots of item from augment or portal (Loaed carousel, Crab rave)

5 Most buffed comps you should try

Some interesting comps to give a try!

1. Disco

TF mana reduce from 120 to 105, this change will bring him back to the game

I have a deep guide on TF, hope you take a look:

https://www.tacter.com/tft/guides/mastering-tf-flex-d6bdd299

This comp has the strongest lv 9 capped board (can play with Ziggs, Illaoi, Sona, Yorick) but the worst board if you can find Ziggs (unlike Pentakill you still can stay in top 4 without 5 cost).

If you have a bad opener avoid this comp. To get success with TF you need a strong opener with a combat augment to maintain winstreak, fast 8 to stabilize your board then hit lv 9 to win the game.

2. True Damage Senna

At 3* her skill damage increases from 225 to 255, it's a 11% buff.

Keep in mind Superfan gives her a Shojin, the next 2 items could be anything, prefer an atk speed and an AP item

Place her in the middle for aoe dmg spread
