Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 7.22 November List

Leave a Comment
There's an incredible amount of data to crunch for the latest preseason patch, so let's start digesting it piece by piece. First off is the ban list, and let's take a look at what the community is looking at as "OP" as a whole and whether or not they seem worth a ban.

Currently, it looks like everyone's terrified of Zed based on the new masteries, and Ezreal with the changes is pretty busted at higher divisions.

There's an incredible amount of data to crunch for the latest preseason patch, so let's start digesting it piece by piece. First off is the ban list, and let's take a look at what the community is looking at as "OP" as a whole and whether or not they seem worth a ban.

Currently, it looks like everyone's terrified of Zed based on the new masteries, and Ezreal with the changes is pretty busted at higher divisions.

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.
