Thanks to the city of Glitching Out in Set 8.5, which includes four new characteristics and 14 champions, time portals and pandemonium are upending Teamfight Tactics
A new vertical Set 8.5 feature and a sizable number of three- and four-cost champions are included in the TFT Mid-Set release. The second part of TFT Monsters Attack!, Set 8.5 Glitched Out!, features units and traits from different realms. Set 8.5 replaces 15 Set Eight champions and two traits with a total of 14 new champions and four new traits for combatants to try out.
Here’s everything you need to know about TFT set 8.5 Glitched Out!
Removed units, traits
Recon, Arsenal (unique to Aphelios) and Civilian are the three TFT Set Eight traits that will be eliminated through the Set 8.5 Mid-Set update. Civilian and Recon both had an effect on Monsters Attack! but as secondary traits rather than vertical ones:
Additionally, for the Mid-set update, a total of 15 units are saying farewell:

Four new traits are included in set 8.5 Glitched Out, one of which is exclusive to five-cost champions. The other two are strong on their own, while the other is a vertical trait:
- Quickdraw: After every 2 damaging ability projectiles, Quickdraw units fire a bonus ability projectile.
- InfiniTeam: The InfiniTeam opens a portal to an alternate timeline. At the start of combat, any InfiniTeam unit placed on a portal summons an alternate version of themself with different items. They get 1 for each Augment you own.
- Riftwalker: Riftwalkers open a gap between dimensions and summon their ally Zac, who grows in power based on the star level of Riftwalkers. Zac gains the last-listed Trait of the closest Riftwalker.
- Parallel: Underground Ezreal learns from his older, more handsome self and joins him in future adventures. Underground Ezreal’s spell becomes a blast that hits all enemies in a line. Ultimate Ezreal’s spell summons two additional temporal duplicates.
There are 14 new TFT Set 8.5 champions, and each of them is linked to two Hero Augments:
