Now that players had time to settle into last weekend Teamfight Tactics Patch 9.16, 9.16b makes its way onto the live servers today. The mini-patch will address some outliers from the initial update, without doing too much to shake the meta.
Here's a look at what the update brings to the table.

In addition to the balance adjustments, Riot has improved upon matchmaking once again to prevent players from facing each other as often. This will be especially helpful as a way of preventing people from meeting pros or top players as frequently in-game.
Even for a small patch to tide us over until next week's 9.17, there are clear winners and losers. The damage buffs for Mega Gnar are pretty large, and the Aatrox damage is significant as well. Jinx's nerfs are a step in the right direction as well, since both the champion and the Hextech Origin have received a fair amount of complaints since last patch.
Patch 9.16b is set to release on August 21, sometime in the afternoon. Patch 9.17 will release on Wednesday, August 28.
