The game features unique characters, traits, items, augments, skins, and more.

What is the champion pool in TFT?

In TFT, champions are in a shared pool—the more the same champion is bought by players, the less it’ll appear in the shop.

To see how many champions are left in the pool, you need to scout other players and look at their board and bench.

If too many of the same champion is taken, you might not want to roll the shop as the chances of you getting it are low.

When a player gets eliminated, their board of champions goes back into the champion pool.

If you have HP to spare, the strategy is to wait for the player(s) who has the champion(s) that you want to get eliminated before you start rolling aggressively.

That way, you can increase the chances of getting the champion that you want in the shop.
