New League of Legends champions will be coming to Teamfight Tactics soon, but which ones are really worth of such an honor? Today’s list is all about that!

With Riot’s announcement that Twisted Fate will be coming soon to Teamfight Tactics, it only makes sense to look at the other League of Legends champions and dream of what they’d be like in TFT. Today, we’re taking a look at five champions who’d be excellent additions to Teamfight Tactics.

With so many other factions represented in TFT (Demacia, Bilgewater, and Bandle City, to name a few), it only makes sense for Riot to add Shurima to the game as well. Xerath would be a perfect choice as a representative – all of his abilities lend themselves well to TFT, so he could fit in at pretty much any tier. He’s boring, but he’s far from the worst candidate to join the game.

4. Lux

Nobles have precious few synergies outside of Knights and Rangers, which makes them fairly binary to play and not much fun. Lux is a good solution for that problem – since she’d obviously be a Noble/Sorceror, she could bridge the gap between Nobles and other traits.

Lux also belongs in TFT due to how iconic her ult is – who wouldn’t want to see her fire lasers that obliterate whole teams?

3. Riven

Yasuo might be the only character in TFT to have the Exile trait, but he’s certainly not the only exiled character in League of Legends. Riven is the obvious choice for the game’s second Exile – not only is she literally an exile, but she’d also have great synergies with the Exile and Blademaster bonuses. In addition, her Wind Slash ability is one of the more iconic ults in the game and deserves to show in TFT.

2. Vi

The Piltover Enforcer makes it so high on the list due to how interesting her playstyle could be. Since she’s not an assassin, she’d be forced to brawl with the rest of your frontline – right up until she got enough mana for her ability and dove the enemy unit furthest away from her, knocking enemies aside along the way. It’d make for a very interesting scenario similar to Blitzcrank’s mind game, though with more counterplay.

On top of this, Vi would allow Riot to add support for Piltovian characters, giving us another whole faction to use. That’s pretty good, but not enough for her to make the top of the list.

1. Illaoi

Illaoi’s kit lends itself perfectly to TFT. Whether she’s Tentacle Smash-ing enemies as a low-tier unit or using Leap of Faith to decimate whole teams, Illaoi would be a spectacular unit to watch strut her stuff on the board.

On top of her obvious ability inclusions, Illaoi could also provide some interesting cross-synergies for a few comps. The obvious choice would be to make her a Pirate Brawler, but Riot could easily make her Void instead (and use her Voidbringer skin) in order to give her synergies with other compositions. All of this combined means that Illaoi is one of the best choices for inclusion in Teamfight Tactics.
