Patch 13.5 made adjustments to a limited number of champions, but these changes are likely to have a significant impact on the meta leading up to the launch of TFT Set 8.5.

Teamfight Tactics  patch 13.5, which precedes the 8.5 mid-set update, includes significant system changes related to items and augments, along with minor balance adjustments. 

These patches, which come before major updates, tend to be relatively light in nature, and the changes made to champions in this patch are not particularly significant, so they are unlikely to have a major impact on the overall strength of meta team compositions and win rates.

The changes to item distribution in patch 13.5 are a significant development that affects players at all skill levels. These changes were introduced to address the issue of RNG and its impact on the outcome of high-level TFT games. As a result, it is important for all players to be aware of and understand these changes.
