FOTM Ranked Solo Queue Tier List (High Elo) ~ Patch 6.24 - December

Leave a Comment
 Hey everyone, happy holidays and welcome to the latest FOTM Tier List for Patch 6.24. This time around we're updating a bit later in the cycle so that players have more time to soak in the changes, which are reflected below.

Lux is currently showing up very strong on the rift nowadays, as well as Morgana. These two champions synergize perfectly with Jhin, who although still remains popular, is not quite in the top three. Meanwhile, it's no surprise to see Camille topping the charts with her outrageous kit.

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

  • Camille [God Tier Top] - Camille's kit is extremely overloaded, and it looks like Riot overshot it a bit on release. Although she's still beatable, her ability to snowball a game and dominate are somewhat unprecedented simply because of how many tools she has at her disposal. More on that via this article.
  • Garen [Tier 1 Top] - After the changes to his spin providing armor reduction, Garen is seeing a lot more play time. His ability to crush tanks via the spin plus villain mechanic allow him to stay relevant.
  • Lissandra [Tier 3 Top] - Lissandra has largely fallen out of favor as a top lane bully as a result of the Colossus keystone mastery. Nowadays, Ryze is largely the preferred choice for a top lane AP bully, but Lissandra still works if you're good at her.
  • Morgana [God Tier Support] - Morgana keeps getting more and more popular as Jhin remains one of the everyone's favorite snare masters. She also synergizes very well with Caitlyn as well for long duration stuns and safe poke.
  • Olaf [Tier 1 Jungle] - Although he suffered a minor setback with the release of the Colossus keystone mastery, this patch toned back its power a bit. Nowadays, Olaf is back in the fray with his fast clear speeds and marksman deleting power.
  • Shaco [Tier 2 Top] - Despite hotfix nerfs to Shaco halfway through this patch, Shaco top remains played quite a bit. The rework on his kit allows for a lot more outplay potential, meaning that he can snowball much harder than before. His box duration also greatly improves the his laning phase safety.
  • Singed [Tier 1 Top] - Double Dark Seal Singed is immensely popular nowadays and for good reason. Ever since the introduction of Colossus, Singed can trade harder than ever and fling enemies at will. More information on the current state of Singed here.
  • Teemo [Tier 3 Top] - Teemo is not a very popular champion when first picked on your team. However, he can be an absolute terror to melee top champions like Darius and Garen. As a result, many one trick pony top laners choose to ban him rather than deal with his insanely oppressive laning phase.
