2017 Best Champions Tier List - Solo Queue Ranked Ladder Climbing - Patch 7.12 Update

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone and welcome to the latest update for Patch 7.12! As usual a few of you are scoffing at the positions on the early release FOTM Tier List, but there's really nothing to argue there since it's purely data driven by the collective community.

Meanwhile, please feel free to debate to your heart's content on the positions below! This time around I'm raising Draven up to God Tier despite the difficulty in his playstyle. The potential benefits you can get from practicing him is really just far too high right now, and there's only true one mechanic you need to learn (catching axes and hitting W when you catch one)

Kassadin's also being moved down this patch just a sliver simply because Malzahar is getting more and more popular, but feel free to keep playing Kass if you happen to be lower on the pick order.

Weird Picks #81: No/Late Sightstone Soraka Support

Leave a Comment
 Lovingly described as the greediest Soraka build I've ever seen, this strategy was first popularized by a 600 LP Challenger Soraka one trick known as "Seb" on the NA server for his previous gamer tag before he changed it to a few strange characters.

This build is heavily reliant on NOT dying during the laning phase to make use of the incredible scaling offered by the runes and build, but definitely draws some serious ire if your team happens to be losing. Make sure to read through the below before attempting!

FOTM Report: Blitzcrank in Pro Play

Leave a Comment
Solo queue teams fear him, Bronze players despise him, and high level players scoff at him. This has been the legacy of Blitzcrank for as long as I can remember. Competitive play generally relies on team-based support champions like Karma or Braum, and Blitzcrank players are relegated to dominating the ranked ladder. However, lately, that's changing with LCK teams picking him up and/or banning him with increased frequency. Why is this though? If his hook is so easy to dodge, why are pros picking him up now?

FOTM Ranked Solo Queue Tier List (High Elo) ~ Patch 7.12 - June

Leave a Comment
Wow, it's been quite a while since the last FOTM list update, I've really been slacking a bit. Back in action this week though! This time around we're looking at some interesting shifts in the mid-lane with Kassadin back in the mix and roaming mid-laners all the rage.

Meanwhile, Thresh looks like he's ready to take over the top spot on the support list and Rakan's rising fast behind. Draven is also surprisingly high nowadays as a result of his new Death's Dance build, which is super obnoxious to deal with.

Official Patch 7.12 Notes Released!

Leave a Comment

Introduction


Hey everyone and welcome to the latest patch notes! Just looking over my recent post history and it's been pretty lackluster...only two posts between this and the last patch. Sorry about that, been busy trying to grind out ranked games for that sweet challenger recall animation! Still a long ways off, but it's definitely attainable I think...

Anyway, this time around we're looking at some buffs on some of the coolest champions on the rift (in my opinion), Camille and Rakan! Rakan's somewhat more of a bug fix, but a buff is a buff. Meanwhile, Zac and Ivern are finally getting the nerf bat and Knight's Vow now grants 10% cooldown reduction...always gotta love CDR!

Check out the full scope of changes below:

Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 7.11 June List

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone, the latest ban list for 7.11 is out, and Zac's pretty much a must ban in all divisions. Zed is still getting banned an awful lot though. He can be scary, but for the most part he can be handled at all divisions.

2017 Best Champions Tier List - Solo Queue Ranked Ladder Climbing - Patch 7.11 Update

Leave a Comment
  Patch 7.11 is here and it looks like the Age of Kassadin has returned. His early game may still be lackluster, but once he hits level six and picks up a Rod of Ages, it's only a matter of time before he puts the enemy team in shutdown mode.

Meanwhile, the love taps on Caitlyn and Zac don't seem to be doing much, and Malzahar (mid) looks like he's doing much better after the tweak, at the sacrifice of Malzahar support's potential.
