Teamfight Tactics is still in beta itself but that didn't prevent Riot from adding new champions to the roster. They offered a teaser of the next champion and the community quickly deduced it's everyone's favourite card shark, Twisted Fate.

Twisted Fate will be the first champion to join the original 50 in Teamfight Tactics. This was not officially announced yet but Wittrock, Riot Games' set designer for Teamfight Tactics teased the 51st champion to join the game with an extremely zoomed in picture teaser.

It didn't take the community long to figure out this is actually Twisted Fate in his Cutpurse skin. You can see the splash art on the header image where he shares it with Graves.

The teaser image shows Twisted Fate's left arm that is not prominently featured in the splash art so credit to the eagle-eyed League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics community.

There is no info on his ability but fans speculate that Twisted Fate will either throw Wild Cards around for damage in three lines or go on the RNG side and randomly select between blue, red or yellow card for different effects.

One thing is sure though - he will have the Pirate origin which should help players who want to focus on farming gold but don't like having Gangplank around since he mostly proves to be useless in combat.

If Twisted Fate turns out to be more combat savvy, farming compositions with Graves, Pyke and the card enthusiast should become more viable without losing a ton of health.

Gangplank is both hard to upgrade and is generally underwhelming when a player commits to upgrading him so pretty much any type of pirate would be a welcome change at this point.

Keep in mind that Riot Games changed the drop rates for common and rare champions on 1 July 2019 which means a few more blue champions will find their way onto the board with fewer three-star commons. On the other hand, it's currently unknown which rarity Twisted Fate will have.
