Teamfight Tactics is a game in which a lot depends on luck, and the player's task is to adapt to changing conditions on the map. When you start a match, never focus on one particular combination of heroes. Consider the characters you draw and match your playing style with them. In this Chapter, you will learn what to do to start each game well.
At the beginning, the basis of your army should be the heroes fighting on the front line. They will largely determine the type of army you will be developing. When you build the first line, choose the remaining units according to class or origin of your tanks.
Two great suggestions to start with:
1. Regenerating Druids - Ivern/Maokai - excellent characters for the first line. They work great at the beginning of a match. They give easy Druid synergy. You can also use them to quickly get Woodland synergy - simply add LeBlanc or Neeko.
2. Aggressive Berserkers - Renekton/Jax/Volibear - these characters aren't that durable but they deal massive damage. Also, Renekton can heal himself thanks to this ability.
Of course, these are not the only possibilities. Each class in the game has characters that are most efficient in the first line. If you want to invest in mages, focus on buying Kassadine first, and for pirates, Graves will work well. It all depends on what Champs you draw at the beginning and what your opponents will buy. No point investing in Darius if 4-5 other players also chose him. The pool of all Champs is common!
How should I develop?
If you decide who will be on your first line, you can now build the rest of your army.
1. Three knights - as you started playing with Garen, a good option would be to focus on the Noble faction. The set of warriors includes Vine, Luciana and Fiora. You hence get a balanced composition and a very good synergy to increase armor and add treatment.
2. Wild adventurers - from this composition, you can follow two different directions. The first option - the fraction of the Wild, which includes Warwick, Ahri, Gnar (very strong unit!), Nidalee and Rengar. You will thus receive a great bonus to the attack speed. The second possibility is the Void faction. In this case, add Kassadin, Kha'zix, or Cho'gotha to your army, and all units will ignore part of the enemy's armor.
Remember! If you have a stronger alternative of substitute Champs, then try to keep only the minimum number of units on the field to a certain synergy. The Void faction gets a bonus for three units of this faction, so it is not necessary to keep four of them.
If you already have several active synergies, try to develop them and add synergies that do not require a large number of units. Good examples are Desert or Crystal factions.
Don't be afraid of experimenting. The best army, of course, has not yet been discovered, and sometimes the drawn items can determine the outcome.
