Teamfight Tactics can sometimes be confusing, even for the brightest minds. It’s not uncommon to have some questions that need to be addressed. That’s why we are here! To clear any confusion that you might have since you started playing TFT.
Teamfight Tactics gameplay relies on a player assembling a unique army with many different champions with compatible traits.
Every champion is different. They have different abilities, different stats, different traits, and different compatible items.
The price of the champions in TFT range from 1 gold per champion up to 5 gold per champion, and as their price rises, so does their base strength, and their abilities become more valuable with a more significant impact on the game.

The Pool is a magical place where champions hang out with each other before being sucked into battle by our Little Legends. It is essential to understand that every player is buying champions from the same Pool, which has a limited amount of the same champions. Their number differ according to their value. In simpler words, there are more 1 gold champions in the Pool than 5 gold champions.
Why is This Important?
It’s important because your goal is to get your whole army to lvl 3 asap, and that will be a pretty hard thing to do if everyone is playing the same strategy as you are since it won’t be enough champions in the Pool for all of you to make your champions a 3 star-level.
The simple solution for this is, at the beginning of each game, take a peek at what your opponents are building and try to avoid it. It won’t always be possible since many traits have overlapping champions, for example, Gangplank is essential in both Mercenaries and Twinshot traits.
You may build Mercs, but one of your opponents is building Twinshots. So that being said, you won’t be able to escape having some overlapping champions always, but try to minimize it as much as you can.
Remember, it’s better to have 8 unit army, with every unit being 3-star, than to have a couple of 2-star champions of the strongest trait at the moment.

TFT Champion Pool and Draw Chances in February 2022
|Tier 1||Tier 2||Tier 3||Tier 4||Tier 5|
So What does this mean?
Basically, it means that there are, for example, 29 Caitlyns in the Pool. Caitlyn is one gold champion, and if you look at the chart, you can easily spot that your best chance to buy here is in the first two levels. After that draw chance for Caitlyn, or any other one gold champion, is slowly getting lower, but a draw chance for some two or more star champion is getting higher.
You can apply this example for any champion you like, just use the chart to navigate, and I’m sure in no time, you won’t be needing that chart at all!
That’s all, folks. Until the next time.
