Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 7.18 September List

Leave a Comment
Hi folks and welcome to the latest ban list for Patch 7.18 as worlds kicks into high gear. At higher divisions Tristana is an extremely popular ban, whereas lower divisions she's played a lot but not banned too much. Players looking to climb might want to pick her up or ban her considering she's the most popular champion in the game right now.

Meanwhile, we're still seeing Yasuo do really well at lower divisions and not so well at higher ones, with popular assassins like Zed still pulling in bans, but not doing particularly well when he's picked up.

Anyway, check out the full list below!

Hi folks and welcome to the latest ban list for Patch 7.18 as worlds kicks into high gear. At higher divisions Tristana is an extremely popular ban, whereas lower divisions she's played a lot but not banned too much. Players looking to climb might want to pick her up or ban her considering she's the most popular champion in the game right now.

Meanwhile, we're still seeing Yasuo do really well at lower divisions and not so well at higher ones, with popular assassins like Zed still pulling in bans, but not doing particularly well when he's picked up.

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.
