Most Popular Meta Ranked Champions FOTM Tier List - July - Patch 6.13

Leave a Comment

Hi everyone and welcome to the latest updates to the FOTM Tier list for the beginning of July! Since the pace does move very fast in the League meta, this post will likely be updated just before the release of Patch 6.14 as there is about a week of lag time between when the patch notes come out and when the statistics start becoming available. Get hyped!

This patch features some strong move-ups from ranged shield supports like Lulu, although Blitzcrank's ban rate has also spiked greatly from last patch. Meanwhile, Azir is back in God Tier for the mid lane, and Ezreal is finally kicked off the top end of the marksmen ladder.

Instructions and Caveats:
  • This tier list details which champions are most popular in today's current metagame, for better or for worse. Selecting a high popularity champion and doing mediocre is always favorable to selecting a low tier champion and doing mediocre for team morale.

Champion Explanations

  • Alistar [Tier 2 Support] - Ever since the nerf to Alistar's ultimate in Patch 6.10, he has experienced a slow decline. However, now that ranged healing and shield supports received such a massive buff in Patch 6.13 via Ardent Censer and Mikael's Crucible, he is picked less than ever before.
  • Azir [God Tier Mid] - Currently viewed as one of the two strongest mid laners on the professional scene (the other being Viktor), Azir is one of the most popular mid lane champions on the ranked ladder as well. Despite his difficult to use kit, his utility is extremely rewarding in the hands of a master.
  • Blitzcrank [God Tier Support] - Although Riot meant to nerf Blitzcrank this patch, the fact that his ultimate no longer aggros Baron and Dragon means that he is better than ever before. As a result, expect to see more play out of him rather than less.
  • Corki [Tier 2 Marksman] - Corki is in an awful spot at the moment. As a champion that does not scale terribly hard with AD, he does not make good use of the popular Youmuu and duskblade builds that players enjoy on the rift at the moment. As a result, he has difficulty in the mid-game, traditionally his strongest point.
  • Ezreal [Tier 1 Marksman] - Similar to Corki, Ezreal is starting to fall out of favor a bit as a result of his poorer itemization with the stronger builds. Additionally, the fact that enemy marksmen now build armor penetration earlier means that Blue Ezreal is even weaker in the early game than ever before. His armor from Iceborn Gauntlet also does not help as much since enemies stack armor penetration earlier.
  • Illaoi [Tier 1 Top] - Illaoi is in an extremely powerful state right now. After Riot reworked her kit to give her more scaling damage, she is extremely oppressive in lane and an excellent ranked ladder pick as a result of her ability to fight 1v2 or even 1v3 against players that are not ready for her damage output.
  • Lulu [Tier 1 Support] - As one of the more complex shield supports, Lulu is extremely popular to play as a result of her fun kit. Since Riot's release of the reworked Ardent Censer and Mikael's, she is definitely experiencing a surge in popularity. 
  • Volibear [Tier 1 Jungle] - Strangely enough, Volibear's play rate keeps rising even after his nerfs. It seems that by Riot drawing attention to him being strong and giving him mediocre nerfs, he is now more popular.
  • Zyra [God Tier Support] - Similar to Volibear, it seems some players are late to the Zyra support bandwagon. Her ban rate just keeps rising, despite recent nerfs to her kit.
