Most Popular Meta Ranked Champions FOTM Tier List ~ Pre-Patch 6.15 (July)

Leave a Comment

Hey guys! Putting through two FOTM lists per patch seems like it was a bit aggressive, so instead I am just going to update this one as the patch goes on. This should make things more manageable and keep updates flowing through.

As we close in on the new patch, it looks like Azir is quickly falling out of his dominant position, whereas Zed continues to top the charts. Meanwhile, the new Ryze is drawing a ton of attention and bans, despite a less than mediocre win rate.

Check out the full list below!

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

  • Azir [Tier 1 Mid] - Repeated nerfs knocked Azir off his high horse, and he is no longer the preferred powerhouse amongst mid laners. Instead, they are quickly reverting to other high skill champions like Leblanc and Yasuo, shelving Azir for more damage.
  • Fiora [Tier 1 Top] - The latest buffs in Patch 6.14 were just the thing to bring an old favorite back to light. Armed with her increased vitality hit damage, Fiora is an incredibly lane bully that also scales very hard as a full damage duelist.
  • Jhin [God Tier Marksman] - The Duskblade build is now in full swing and players are spamming Jhin more than ever. He is starting to become the new Lucian with his powerful trades and extreme damage.
  • Kindred [Tier 1 Jungle] - Ever since players started gravitating back towards tank junglers, Kindred are quickly losing steam as a preferred jungler.
  • Maokai [Tier 3 Jungle] - Despite the rise of other tanky junglers like Gragas, Zac, and Hecarim, Maokai is left unloved. However, his easy ganks and simple CC may bring him back into the spotlight soon. 
  • Ryze [God Tier Mid] - Because of the pure *potential* of Ryze's kit, players are very interested in both playing him and banning him as well. However, most players still have not found much success with the champion. Patch 6.15 did not give Ryze any buffs however, so we shall see if he retains his dominance on the ban charts and/or improves his win rate by a bit.
  • Sona [God Tier Support] - So incredibly powerful that Riot performed a mid-patch hotfix on her, Sona remains to be one of the most hotly contested supports on the rift.
  • Soraka [God Tier Support] - Ever since the changes to healing and shields via Forbidden Idol, Soraka has been a top tier pick and extraordinarily effective.
  • Thresh [Tier 1 Support] - After the latest heals and shield changes, band wagon players are largely dropping Thresh from their choices. His utility is still very good, but his burst damage has quite a bit of trouble dropping champions through healers 2v2 bot since it is quite low.
  • Viktor [God Tier Mid] - Viktor remains a popular pick for his simple kit that provides an excellent amount of utility, and continues to dominate, especially with Azir out of the picture.
