Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 7.9 May List

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone, quick update on the ban list below. I tried to be a bit more consistent with the bans as they vary from tier to tier. Generally I start from a clean slate and look at the stats objectively without thinking about the other divisions, but this time around I think I did a pretty good job keeping it clean.

Hi everyone, quick update on the ban list below. I tried to be a bit more consistent with the bans as they vary from tier to tier. Generally I start from a clean slate and look at the stats objectively without thinking about the other divisions, but this time around I think I did a pretty good job keeping it clean.

Anyway, check out the full list below!

Be sure to check out the regular ranked queue list, and the FOTM tier list as well!

The purpose of this list is to discover optimal bans, with the knowledge that enemy teams will likely ban the ones at the top of the list.

Banning Thought Process

  1. Which champions could the enemy team pick that would really screw my team over?
  2. Which champions could the enemy team pick that would really screw ME over?
  3. Which of the champions above is the enemy team likely going to pick if it's not banned?
  4. Which of the champions above is the enemy team probably going to ban?
After considering these items, it's time to hit the ban phase.

Method

To do this list, I first start with whichever statistical compilation site I have available (my personal preference is leagueofgraphs.com). Afterwards, I check the most banned champions and separate them into either "God Tier" or "Meh Bans" based on win rate and popularity, sometimes subjective reasoning (in which case I'd do a write up).

Last I do an analysis of both the win rate and the popularity by division and add in good bans for that division based on such.

Some people may note that most sites don't distinguish between "Platinum Only" and "Platinum and Higher". However, this generally doesn't make much of a difference as a result of the way the overall player distribution is between the ranks. Bronze and Silver make up the highest percentage of error, but generally run similar to each other.
