TFT Mobile Launches March 19th!

TFT Mobile is launching March 19th in the App Store and Google Play! Here's more from the press release:
"Riot Games, the developer and publisher of League of Legends (LoL), today announced that Teamfight Tactics (TFT) will arrive in the App Store and Google Play on March 19, 2020*. Teamfight Tactics is Riot’s first-ever mobile game, coming in a banner year that will see Riot launch multiple new games across multiple platforms." 
"TFT on mobile features full cross-play with TFT on PC, allowing players on both platforms to compete seamlessly on different devices. TFT will launch on mobile with the newly revealed content pack, “Galaxies,” which features space, galaxy, and star-themed LoL champions, customization options, and Little Legends, player controlled in-game avatars. It is currently in closed-beta testing in select regions.

At launch, TFT on mobile will have the following new features:
  • Galaxies Pass and Galaxies Pass+ (Free and Paid progression-based features that allow players to unlock content as they play games)
  • Galaxies-themed Booms! (Personalized Damage Animations)
  • PC/Mobile Crossplay
  • New Player Tutorial (on Mobile)
It will also include existing features from the PC version of TFT:
  • Galaxies Little Legends (Personalized Player Avatars)
  • Galaxies-themed Arena Skins
  • Ranked Play"

An Update to the TFT "Galaxies" Mechanic

Here's Riot Mort with an update on the Galaxies mechanic in TFT: Galaxies:
"Hello Captains! 
We want to thank everyone that helped by playing TFT: Galaxies on PBE, and giving us lots of feedback. We wanted to take a moment to talk about the “Galaxies” mechanic system, and give you an update based on how PBE went. 
We put two Galaxies on PBE (Neekoverse and Purple Haze) as a trial run to see the impact they’d have and, more importantly, if they were fun. Overall, they’ve been doing well - they seem to be leading to higher variance in games, more interesting decisions to make, and some crazy (often hilarious) outcomes. We’ve also seen that some of you are pretty disappointed to play on a normal game, which is a good sign that you want the variant experiences that Galaxies will provide. We got a lot of great feedback from all of you based on this, and are going to be making some changes: 
There will be zero Galaxies on patch 10.6. We will then launch the Galaxies mechanic in patch 10.7 (around two weeks after launch). We want one patch to get a hold on what the normal state of the game is, and give you a chance to dive into the new set first (especially for those that did not get a chance to play on PBE), so we will have one patch with no Galaxies. 
The delay will give these a little bit more time to bake. We're still working out exactly how often they should show up (on PBE 80% of games were normal, 10% Neekoverse, and 10% Purple Haze), how many of them there should be, and how we make it super clear for you to know which Galaxy you’re in. We also want to launch with more than two active at the start, and are ramping up so we can add more at a quicker pace than we originally planned. 
So, on patch 10.7 (some MIGHT bump to patch 10.8) here is what you will likely see: 
--Neekoverse- Every player starts with two Neeko's helps.
--Lilac Nebula (previously Purple Haze)- Initial Carousel is all four cost champions.
--Trade Sector- The first reroll each round is free.
--Superdense Galaxy- Players receive a free Force of Nature on reaching level 5.
--Not So Little Legends- Little Legends have more starting health and are larger."

Miscellaneous

"Thanks a ton to all the mods who helped set this new subreddit up! Lots of teams across Riot appreciate the hard work, and we're excited to talk with the PBE community here in the same way we used to on the PBE boards. A few Official Sounding Things just to make sure we're all on the same page: 
  • Riot (me) reached out to the r/LeagueofLegends mods about the PBE boards shutdown a bit before we made our public announcement. My guess was that in a vacuum, a ton of that traffic would flood onto r/LeagueofLegends, much of which violates r/LeagueofLegend's rules. I recommended setting up a separate sub to avoid conflict and ensure there's still a hub for PBE conversations.
  • I've provided input to the mods throughout the development of the sub when asked, ex. which flair groupings should be used for bug reports and which Rioters to flair.
  • I also connected the r/LeagueofLegends mods with the three PBE community members on the starting mod team.
  • I briefly owned this sub after reddit transferred it to me from a 5+yr inactive account.
One last important note: 
Like other wonderful community-owned-and-run hubs for PBE or other Riot games, Riot doesn't own, manage, or control r/LeaguePBE. While the mods set things up to resemble the old boards, and while Rioters will be posting here similar to how we used to post on the PBE boards, no Rioter has mod power here. We're subject to the same subreddit rules as everyone else. 
Alright, that's it for the stuffy business. Back to your regularly-scheduled PBE content!"
  • The LCS & LCS Academy and LEC have an updated schedule and plan on playing 100% remotely for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • LCS & LCS Academy:
"An update on the 2020 LCS & Academy Spring Split from Chris Greeley, LCS Commissioner"
"The #LEC Returns this Friday! Tl;dr: Due to the ongoing developments of the coronavirus pandemic we have decided to play the remainder of the 2020 LEC Spring Split 100% remotely online, with matches resuming Friday, March 20th.  
More info"
  • Riot Draggles noted a League of Legends: Wild Rift video would be out later this week:
"later this week, we're gonna release a quick Wild Rift dev update on http://youtube.com/wildrift!  
heads up, there won't be any news in this video on release/alpha/beta timing, just wanted to check in on our current progress.  
okay going back into hibernation/meme mode now"
