In season 8, Danger generals are often paired with squads revolving around the main 3 gold like Kai’Sa, Vayne, Senna. During the process of rotating the Store to get the above staples, the player can upgrade both Rammus, Cho’Gath or Vel’Koz to 3 stars. In Teamfight Tactics season 8.5, this will almost disappear.
The removal of a good resistant 3-money champion like Cho’Gath makes the new Danger more inclined to play with gold, upgrade to level 8
The reason is because Riot removed Cho’Gath, Vel’Koz and only added Morgana as a 3 gold champion. As a result, the Danger race will be more dependent on 4-5 gold champions instead of taking advantage of cheap but too strong units as before. Then the most suitable gameplay for the Danger race will be to keep the money, upgrade to level 8 instead of rotating the Shop to get many 3 gold 3 star generals like now.
One of the strongest points of the Hacker system is to provide a lot of full lifesteal stats right at the 2 champion mark. This stat helps strong mains like Zed, LeBlanc or Zoe to be able to stay in fights very well without too many healing items. This leads to the situation that players who only use this system at the milestone of 2 champions already possess too much power and win.
Hackers season 8.5 will be a support system instead of having too many mains like now
Going to season 8.5, Riot changed this when Zed and Zoe were eliminated. Instead, Shen and Pyke, champions that are difficult to compare with Zed and Zoe in terms of damage ability. Moreover, the full lifesteal in season 8.5 is also shared with the unit transported by the Hacker effect. Therefore, the Hackers in the Arena of Truth season 8.5 will become a support system instead of providing too many strong mains like the present.
In essence, the Bulls are not a weak race. Even the temporary immortality effect for 1 second before being killed for the first time is considered too strong. Combined with the effect of increasing attack speed, the mainstays of the Bulls can deal extremely good damage.
Season 8.5’s Bull of War effect favors resistance when providing armor/magic resistance
However, in the Arena of Truth season 8.5, Riot completely changed the power of the Bull. Specifically, this race will provide armor/magic resistance to champions instead of attack speed. After that, Talon and Aphelios will be removed from the game. As a result, the Bulls transform into a race that provides resistance instead of dealing as much damage as before.
For many different reasons, the races – Danger, Hackers, and Bulls will be changed a lot in the upcoming season 8.5. This will lead to changes in how to build squads, equip squads to use them. Players need to be very alert to adapt to the above changes in the future.
