Teamfight Tactics somewhat succeeded in getting its foot in the door

Teamfight Tactics is Riot Games' first shot at the auto-battler genre and it somewhat succeeded in getting its foot in the door. The game received constant updates and, within four months, Riot Games came with innovative new sets for the game: "Rise of the Elements" and "Galaxies". How have these two sets changed the game? Thankfully, it is for the better.

Teamfight Tactics is played on six rows of a hexagonal chessboard with eight players building their ultimate team by buying units, finding the right team chemistry and utilizing items. Each unit has their own ability that they will unleash after their mana is full. After each round, the player who loses will take damage based on how many units the winning team has. The last one alive is the winner.

This format is not different from any other auto-battler out there but Teamfight Tactics brought some new things to the table, the carousel item/unit draft for example.
