2013 Champion Tier List - Ranked 3s Twisted Treeline - Patch 3.15 Update


While I'm by no means a guru on the Twisted Treeline I do enjoy playing the game mode quite a bit and hope that they'll move the solo queue 3v3 over from the PBE servers to the live servers some day.

That being said, take this tier list with a grain of salt and feel free to engage in open debate in the comment section with your own thoughts and comments. As the game mode isn't all that popular right now, hopefully this list will help spur some of you to try it out!

Current Metagame
Right now there are two main methods of playing Twisted Treeline:
  1. Duo top with a support like Leona or Annie
  2. Two solo lanes with a jungler
For the most part it seems like the NA region prefers the jungler meta, whereas the EU region prefers the support meta. I can't say for sure which one is better, but personally I think the support meta gives a much safer early game, which allows you to potentially snowball off of.

Based off of this, I'm splitting this tier list into "roles" similar to the solo queue 5s list. However, as there are only 3 positions open, I won't be including every champion into this list. If you feel that I've missed out on a strong champion, please let me know and I'll include it in the next update.

    Tier 3 [Not Played Often]: Everybody else. Not to say that you can't win with other champions, but for the most part the ones above will give you plenty to work with. Feel free to try out other strategies and post your experiences in the comment section below!

    AD/AP Positioning
    Due to the way the map is arranged, bot lane is generally considered the "safer" lane, so the solo laner almost always goes here. However, as this game mode is somewhat uncommon, you may see teams send two champions to bot lane. As a result, it's generally best to send an AP bot with long range waveclear, as these champions can deal with both 1v1 and 1v2 lanes.

    This means that for the most part, the AD based champion will go top. However, swapping these around isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's a good idea to make sure that you have a mix of damage types so that the enemy team can't easily itemize against you.

    Champion Explanations
    • Annie - Annie's base stats are off the charts, making her an idea support. Her AOE stun is also extremely valuable in the tight corridors of the twisted treeline. However, her waveclear isn't all that great since it stops her from holding a stun ready to play, so as the primary AP she's not as strong.
    • Evelynn - Although there were no wards to begin with in 3s, Evelynn remains a fairly strong pick in 3s as the tight spaces and gank heavy playstyle lets her play to her strengths. However, the field tends to be dominated by high HP tanky champions at the moment, and most notably Lee Sin which puts a damper on her performance. If you plan on playing her, I recommend banning the monk.
    • Gragas - Gragas is extremely strong against team compositions that rely on attack speed, such as Xin Zhao and Aatrox. His mobility and displacement potential are also amazing. The only thing holding him back are his ability to farm safely and his synergy with other teammates.
    • Morgana - Morgana is insanely easy to play in 3s. Her waveclear doesn't even need her to be there, and her CC and black shield are absolutely game-breaking. Her drawback is that if she misses her binding she has low utility, so...don't miss.
    • Riven - Riven's definitely a very popular pick right now, and I think that she's much stronger top lane than in jungle. However, as she scales hard off levels, I suggest running her only with a jungler composition rather than a kill lane. She does enough killing by herself.
    • Udyr - Tiger Udyr's damage potential at early levels is absolutely off the charts, and his dueling ability is amazing as well. His late game tankiness also allows him to dive and clear towers with ease.
    • Yasuo - Although Yasuo is an extremely popular pick in 3s right now, I think he's just average at the moment. While the tight corridors allows him to hit his knock-up on more enemies, it's difficult to say exactly where he fits best in a team composition. Personally I think he works well as a solo lane with a Jarvan jungle, but he's also vulnerable to 2 man support kill lanes.
    • The purpose of this list is for discussion and to provide a starting point for hero selection.

    Agree? Disagree? Comment below!

    First time to Nerfplz.Lol or not sure where to find everything? Try the Site Map


    1. could you send a ad caster(like zed,panth or talon) bot and an ap top with a tank jungler maybe?

    2. Joshua AllenDecember 26, 2013

      I could be wrong, but i think you forgot Sejuani. Anytime i played ranked 3v3's, she was always a solid pick or ban. very easy for her to gank through almost any wall in this map for the "jungler" meta.

    3. SSJSuntasticDecember 26, 2013

      Added her to the list, I think that right now most of the AD based junglers are stronger, but I agree that Sejuan is at least viable :)

    4. SSJSuntasticDecember 26, 2013

      Zed and Talon are a bit weaker on this map since their early game isn't very good. You can swap around the positions, but it makes them more vulnerable to ganks if you put a melee bot.

    5. So I see you liked my idea, glad to be helpful, list is great as usual =)

    6. I think a champion that you should think about is AP Sion (AD Sion sucks), This is because with the changes on the Black Fire Torch, Sion is able to burst just about anybody with that item and Sion has good ganking ability due to his stun, much like in 5's.

    7. You do appear to have respect for Viktor.

    8. WHOA WHOA WHOA where's shaco?

    9. SSJSuntasticDecember 26, 2013

      Honestly I think he's closer to tier 3 than tier 2, but he's playable. He's not as strong early on when contesting for altars and his wave clear is pretty weak.

    10. SSJSuntasticDecember 26, 2013

      He's already in tier one for aps

    11. SSJSuntasticDecember 26, 2013

      Signs point to yes :) Tight corridors make him insanely good.

    12. you should try him, he might not be good early but late is almost insta kill, plus he's fun to play

    13. Daniele RavizzaDecember 27, 2013

      I think that kassa is more than viable in 3v3. I normally play in a meta with kassa top, duo bot and i gank a lot. He need to snowball, else he will fight often versus beefy tanks

    14. y no detailed ADC tier list?

    15. Nidalee is not on this list [I AM DISAPPOINT]

    16. laserbeam898December 27, 2013

      In treeline, there are less teamfights and more squirmishes. Even then, ADCs can only duel other ADCs or kite with a support. So, because of this, ADCs are less viable. The ADCs that aren't listed are only really good in team fights (Example: Miss Fortune, Ashe)
      while the ADCs that are listed have escapes and the potential to split push. (Example: Vayne, Ezreal, Quinn)

    17. SSJSuntasticDecember 28, 2013

      It's fun, but her early game doesn't provide much and late game she has a rough time against extremely beefy dive comps that are popular on the map.

    18. orianna tier 2??? WHY?

    19. Need Dominion tier list :)

    20. Jonathan DufourDecember 30, 2013

      Yeah im surprised they didnt do it yet

    21. SSJSuntasticDecember 30, 2013

      I used to have one, but there really didn't seem to be any interest in it so I stopped updating haha.

    22. I noticed Hecarim isn't on this list, which I find odd as he seems to have outrageous dueling potential, decent sustain, and an AOE fear.

    23. No respect for poppy?

    24. To be honest I don't understand why Anivia isn't on here... She has amazing waveclear, there's increased mana regen on tt (which doesn't SOLVE her mana problems but it certainly helps if you're mana efficient) and she has the egg which is good for baits. Plus dat wall in tight corridors.

    25. Hey Suntastic,

      Why isn't Akali on this list?
      I mean I'm not saying she belongs at the high-end tier, but I think she deserves to be at viable tier.
      Maybe I'm just biased since she's my favourite champion since season 1.

    26. What happened to yi? Is he just considered too simpleton?

    27. Woah; Udyr god tier and Darius T1?

      Darius is awesome in TT.

    28. Zac seems really strong in twisted treeline. not that i have played much twisted treeline

    29. If you build trinity force immediately on Poppy, she can chunk most people down. Not to mention the stun into walls and the tower dive abilities of her Ult... I think she should be at least T2.

    30. Excellent beat ! I woulkd like to apprentice while you amend your website, hoow can i subscribe for a blog site?

      The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast
      offered bright clpear idea

      Also visit my website h2o phone service

    31. If you ever update this list for S4, Singed should definitely be AT LEAST Tier 1. Despite his map specific nerf, the increased mana regeneration and the fact that he can buy a Tear of the Goddess from the get go still make him a horrifyingly strong pick in many team comps. I do love that you put Viktor up in the list though, it's nice to see him getting some recognition. =)

    32. I play mainly on euW, and there´s never solo bot lane, it´s adc+supp, and the solo laner goes top .__.

    37. Vel'Koz should be added to the Tier Lists. He can easily farm even against 2 champions, and level 3+ he can escape most ganks. His only vulnerability are gap closers, but if you got a good jungler even thats not a problem. Even going tanky is viable due to Deconstruction's true damage. Jarvan's and Vel'Koz respective ultimates combined ususally ensure winning the teamfight.

    38. WimbledofyMarch 22, 2014

      singed is a monster in twisted treeline and i believe he should be in god tier

    39. Andrew CunninghamMarch 23, 2014

      Dude where's Sion? Get hydra on him and he wrecks

    40. Andrew CunninghamMarch 23, 2014

      I like AD Sion. Get Hydra on him and he wrecks

    41. Tier list Patch 3.15, Vel'koz wasn't in the game

    42. Eu prefers support meta? When I say "support" in solo queue 3v3 everybody calls me troll and I'm in EUW :_D

      question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
      I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts

      there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
      10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to
      figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

      Is there an update to this list in the works? I really want to start playing 3s but have no idea what champs are viable since there are no to-date guides on twisted treeline on any LOL related site. Thank you!

    48. Maciek BęśApril 30, 2014

      I think that Darius and Jax are really strong too to be in God Tier. Why? Darius has great potential on lane and ganks because if he catch enemies and use combo, they will die. Second one - Jax is terrible great killer after create Blade of the Ruined Kind and Trinity Force. I think, you should change their positions in your tier list. :)

      Hi, thanks for sharing your thoughts on 3vs3. When are you planning on updating the list?

      Proposals generally follow a four-part structure: 1) an introduction of yourself and your proposal, 2) a summary of the situation and needs, followed by 3) descriptions of the ideas or
      the properties or services you are offering, including all the important details and associated
      costs. To get started in any sort of proposal writing, your first step should be to gather
      information about the party who will judge your proposal.
