Teamfight Tactics Meta: Best Comps and Builds for TFT Set 7.5 (Patch 12.22)

Best TFT Comps for Patch 12.22

My name is Alan and I’ve peaked Challenger in multiple TFT sets and I constantly work with top Challenger players like Ace of Spades to analyze the meta.

Patch 12.22 is out, and it’s the last patch before we get the new Set 8: Monsters Attack! There are basically no changes to the meta, but the game will have an extra Treasure Dragon at 3-7. Get your last few games of Set 7 in before it’s gone!

NOTE: These team comps will be accurate when we publish at the beginning of the patch but are constantly updated by our experts. If you visit in between patch releases, there may be a slight lag time for when the blog is updated to match it so be sure to check our official website’s TFT team comp page for the most up-to-date info.

Methodology

We evaluate compositions based on 3 key factors:

  • Consistency: How well does this comp perform from game to game and how reliably can you build towards it given a reasonable start?
  • Overall strength: If you do successfully complete the comp, how does it match up against other comps, especially those most prevalent in the meta?
  • Flexibility: Can you make tweaks and adjustments to the comp while events unfold differently in game? These events include item luck, roll luck, and enemy units.

The combination of these three factors allows us to define team compositions as S, A, or B. The ones that have all three will lean toward S, those that are pretty good but may be lacking in some areas will lean towards B.
