TFT Set 3 Expandable Galaxies Replacing Elemental Hexes
It’s been revealed that the TFT Set 3 will be Galaxy themed, indicating major changes are coming to Teamfight Tactics and the way the game is currently played.
The most significant feature to be revealed so far in the new set is the expandable galaxy mechanics that will substitute the Set 2 elemental hexes. Which will represent the core element that the developers believe will establish variance and replayability.
TFT Set 3 Galaxies
Rather than different varieties of hexes and their fluctuating position on the board being what causes variation for each match, Set 3: Galaxies will introduce a new galaxy, each time, a player rolls into the game. Initially, just a few different galaxies can be experienced, but developers are keen on the idea of expandable Galaxies and could feature as many as 10 different galaxies by the end of the set.
Each different Galaxies will bring with them a unique and powerful game-altering mechanic. One game may feature 4-cost units only in the opening carousel, while the subsequent game could provide you with two Neeko’s Helps at the start of the game. Those are just two examples mentioned by developers in their update report. Galaxies for each game could provide a variety of more substantial possibilities, totally depends upon how far the developers plan to take them.
Which really opens up a broad range of possibilities. Multiple metas may play out for each specific galaxy, but with how often updates are seen in the game, it may cause confusion on how easier it will be for players to lockdown. Hopefully, Riot manages to find an adequate common ground between patches to allow players to maintain some sort of consistency.
The Devs want adaptability and a sense of significant variance between each game, something that they started in Set 2 with Elemental Hexes only this time they want more drastic changes with the ability to expand. Clearly the goal is to prevent meta-guides from taking over the game fully and force players to rely on their overall game knowledge as the primary means of strategizing.
So far, the developers have only teased fans of a few different types of Galaxies we can expect in Set 3. The same can be said for possible champions to be included in the new Set. On the bright side, we won’t have to wait for too much longer to find out, with the game set to launch in mid-March.
