  • Champions in BOLD I will talk about shortly
  • Champions UNDERLINED may be over/undervalued, but aren't/haven't played enough for me to make a better judgement.
  • Within each tier the champions are strongest from left to right, but within a tier each champion's strength is relatively close. This is especially true for Tiers 2 and 3 where these champions are ALL highly playable and player dependent on how strong they are in-game.

Champion Explanations
  • Cho'Gath [Tier 2 Jungle] - Although he's a very solid jungler with superb sustain and decent waveclear, his ganks are a bit lackluster and he doesn't excel in many areas. That being said, I think he's balanced and strong in the right hands.
  • Dr. Mundo [God Tier Top] - My man, Dr. Mundo. Despite the nerfs to the defense tree, top lane Mundo is an absolute beast right now. His scaling damage is insane (even when he builds full tank) and the current state of spirit visage makes it an ideal pick on almost all top lanes. This means that for Mundo who naturally builds it, it's especially powerful.
  • Evelynn [Tier 1 Jungle] - Originally I was against moving Evelynn to god tier simply because she's a bit of a gimmick champion in my eyes, but the pressure she applies to lanes is strong enough to create a major disadvantage. Her damage and ganking power is also very good, and simple to execute as well.
  • Fiddlesticks [Tier 1 Jungle] - The fear nerf hit him hard, but his ultimate is still game-changing. 
  • Lee Sin [Jungle] - Ahh...the most popular jungler in the game. He's definitely got a lot going for him, and itemizes very well with the preseason balance changes. However, in the end he's still a very skill oriented champion that excels best at the highest levels of play. However, for us mere mortals there are better selections.
  • Leona [God Tier Support] - After the nerfs to Taric, Leona is probably the strongest support in the game right now, except when the enemy team has a lot of AD on their team in which case Taric will still be better.
  • Nidalee [Tier 1 AP Mid] - With the pace of the game being focused more on diving enemy turrets and fast engages, Nidalee's poking power is greatly reduced. While she can still snowball hard, the current meta doesn't favor her unique strategy.
  • Rammus [God Tier Jungle]- The nerfs were actually more of a tweak, since they did give him a longer lvl 1 taunt. This means that his early game ganks are even stronger than ever before, and his lvl 3 gank is better than ever.
  • Shyvana [God Tier Top] - Similar to Mundo, her damage and tanking power are simply off the charts. Shyvana's a very cyclical champion. When her damage and tankiness are high enough to compete in the current meta, she's op, when it's not, she sucks. Since she offers very little in real utility, there's really no in-between. 
  • Singed [Tier 1 Top] - With Mundo and Shyvana on the field, Singed's power is a little less stellar than before. While he's still a decently strong champion, there are better champions that fit the same role now.
  • Sivir [God Tier AD Carry]- Nerfs hit hard, but she's still probably the strongest AD carry in the game at the moment and snowballs HARD.
  • Syndra [Tier 1 AP Mid]- Her utility and trading power is very high right now after all the buffs she received in the last few patches.
  • Taric [God Tier Support] - Taric's nerfs hurt him a bit, but honestly he's still very strong.
  • Teemo [Tier 3 Support] - The new hybrid masteries give him a very strong early game, and his harass is decent. Without oracle his new found glorious mushroom fields are also given a huge buff.
  • Yasuo - Not seeing the power so far, check out this article for more details.

  1. Hello, I'm relatively new to League of Legends as I just started playing a few weeks ago. I have a few questions about the tier list for this game. How big is the difference between each tier? Also, do professionals bother picking champions that are below tier 1? I have heard talk of Riot trying to phase out the jungler role. As I am new to this game, I don't know if that is starting to happen right now or if it is still in the future. If the jungler role is phased out, how will that change the viability of champions that are considered great junglers, but are perhaps mediocre elsewhere? Sorry if that's a lot, but I appreciate anyone that has a lot of knowledge about this game taking the time to answer my questions.

  2. Love the list, always like seeing whats going on after every patch

    The difference between each tier is slim, especially between the borders of each tier (e.g. the bottom of tier 1 and the top of tier 2). For the most part, win rates in solo queue hover around 40~55% per champion, which really shows how much effort Riot puts into balancing each of their champions.


    Pros may or may not pick champions that are below tier 1, as the game is constantly evolving and what might catch the eye of one player may not catch the eye of another. A lot of hero choices are also based on player preference, and some pro players may easily be able to play a Tier 4 solo queue champion at a God Tier level.


    The jungler role is not being phased out, but Riot is trying to give players more options and flexibility in where to position themselves on the map. Certainly, without the jungle role certain champions will be much lower in viability, for example Rammus.

  4. why is katarina not in really strong but balanced?

  5. wheres mid lane ryze

  6. always more accurate analysis

  7. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    He's not viable anymore so I left him off. Just kidding, it's actually one of those rare times where a champion gets knocked off the page when I fat-finger a copy paste somewhere. I've placed him in Tier 3, as his current range makes him easy to bully at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thank you for your response. That clarifies many things. There is something else that I am wondering about. According to this list, Pantheon is a tier 1 mid champion. I am under the impression that he is an AD champion. If you take him mid, does that mean that you need to have an AP carry somewhere else on your team if you want to have good team composition? Or does it not matter very much?

    ReplyDelete
  9. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    Not sure how to respond to that, like many champions she likely falls somewhere in between really strong and balanced, but at the moment I see her as being balanced?

    ReplyDelete
  10. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    It depends how well your team is synergizing. Having an AP top is ideal, but oftentimes in solo queue you can get away without an AP, especially if your team is packing champions like Taric and Jarvan that provide natural armor penetration.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am also a newer player, however, I do know that professionals don't just pick according to the tiers. They choose what players that fit their team's composition the best, or that counter the opponents champions. Some lower tier champions can counter God tier champions.
    Also, I haven't heard anything about Riot trying to take jungle away, but that would completely change the game! We don't know if the strong junglers would be useless because we don't know what their new role would be. They might just turn into a "ganking" role.
    Hope that somewhat helps!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I see, that makes sense. Why did Master Yi drop from tier 2 to tier 3 in both of his roles? I didn't see him getting any nerfs.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Are top lane Kayle and Mid lane Kayle meant to be built the same?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Overlord MalzaharDecember 17, 2013

    I demand that you put Malzahar on top of that list. Hell, make a new tier just for him!

    (jokes aside, ty for the content)

  15. BoltOfSpadesDecember 17, 2013

    Honestly I think Galio should be higher, his ult's long duration gives the ad carry time to single out important targets, and groups up enemies for smaller AoE spells such as Jax's Counter-Strike.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Andrew ScottDecember 17, 2013

    Why is Sejuani suddenly not Gtier; no nerfs to her better tank masteries wtf?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Andrew ScottDecember 17, 2013

    Also shouldn't hec be Godtier he naturally builds spirit visage and is stronger then ever with masteries.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Any thoughts on Diana? Was going to start playing her again since she's fallen out of the spotlight.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I build them the same, although for top lane I only pick her into certain match ups

    If they pick Garen, pick Kayle. Lane won. Place your q after he uses his slow removal though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Solid burty champ but not easy to master for your first few games with her Q/R/R combo can be predictable so you need to always find the best timing to initiate it!
    Gl summoner :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. IMO it's the same deal as Fiddlesticks the Prechange of S4 really not helping and i can agree with this change since i found her early game risky most of the time you will want to do something nasty with her and then you feel like you did cost the game on those early moves shes so item reliant :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. I know that BOTRK is ideal for Kayle Top while mid would be a waste compare to what Nashor Tooth offers!

    ReplyDelete
  23. As a Quinn player, I'll take it as a compliment that given she's dropping down the ranks. I think most of my success amounts to lack of match-up knowledge to be honest though. Still, I don't think she's the 2nd worst ADC in the game. Her kit allows her to out duel most other ADCs, but if she were to get buffed I wouldn't mind. I can't say that she's lacking in anything though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. RadioactiveheroDecember 17, 2013

    Ssshh dont tell anyone about Botrk on kayle,

    ReplyDelete
  25. Evelynn, hm. You say you didn't want to move her to God tier, originally, and you didn't. But.. I really think she belongs there, at the moment. I main her and this season.. I've been on a 8 game win streak with her in ranked. I get that you need to know how to play her to do well with her, but seriously.. if you don't know how to play Kassadin or Swain, they're useless. I think I would put her into the God tier section, really.

    ReplyDelete
  26. But in the realm of junglers, we have people like Amumu and Jarvan IV who have scary ganking potential, especially Rammus with his early game ganks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If you can play her well, you should be able to carry games with her. She's not as squishy as other champs, and oh god, if she's ahead, she's so bursty, you can't really do anything against her anymore. She'll bully your entire team. Especially if she has a Hourglass and can decide to be invulnerable for a moment..

    ReplyDelete
  28. Have to agree. The jungle changes hurt her, somehow. She's still strong, but definitely slower and needs more time before she's really tanky and helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  29. And the cooldown? And the damage of your ult when you're the AP carry? Not enough damage output, and you can't carry games with him. I used to use him a lot, but his cds and mana costs are too high, and his damage is too low.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You can cancel her ult very easily, and that's part of her main damage output. If you don't know when to use it, Kat is pretty much useless.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Agreed with you :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. The big problem is the amount of people who play Caitlyn right now, currently the 2nd most popular champion right now and the most popular ADC. She outranges her drastically, which gives her the ability to zone Quinn and "lock" her at a distance. If she decides to go in, Caitlyn can simply 90 Caliber Net out. Her Q goes through minions as well. You have to switch to Valor a lot to cope. It's not that Quinn doesn't have the damage to do well (she does, and is my 3rd favorite ADC), she just can't handle the ADCs this time around.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yo! don't tell me what to do yo!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Rammus got nerfed. Amumu depends on blue buff early, and is very weak when you start counterjungling him. Jarvan? Agreed.

    But look at Eve. You can start ganking at Lv. 3 or 4, and you're really FAST. No wards to spy you out at that time. And when there is, don't gank the lane until someone gets rid of it or you have an opportunity to get rid of it yourself. Go counter jungle. Their team doesn't know where you are if they don't pay a lot of attention. When you're ahead - and that happens easily if you get one or two good ganks off - you're REALLY strong and can bully the whole map. Everyone feels threatened, because hey, you're an invisible lady.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Often a champion will change tiers not because of changes to their own kit, but to the game around them (the meta). In Yi's case his resets have diminished value in the currently bruiser-centric/tanky meta.

    ReplyDelete
  36. AoE damage often comes from the midlaner, so the AoE spells coming from other lanes aren't a compelling argument to rank him higher. He's a situational pick with plenty of drawbacks, to me the Balanced tier seems a propos.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well really, Hecarim is a jungler that NEEDS to take kills from their carries to function as a strong bruiser tank jungler and he can be quite unkillable late game, but he can't 1v5 the enemy team like he could many many many patches ago. He's just a selfish jungler and selfish junglers aren't favored in the meta unless they are kill lane junglers like Rengar or Kha. Nobody favors the fat pony anymore because of his mediocre ganks and very expensive items. He just needs some more oranges and he'll be k'.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just played a couple games with Rammus and when I spam him in SoloQ, man is he effective. I almost never lose a game with him because of his tankiness and single target lockdown. But surprisingly I have a 71.2 percent win rate with Master Yi with 60 games while I only have a 68.8 percent wn rate with Rammus with 20-30 games. Also I'm glad that the god tierlist is balanced now. It's not crowded like it used to be. Some champions don't deserve to be called 'god' Rammus OP. Better luck next time folks.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Eve still has her problems. No CC for ganking. Pretty much an invisible shyvana and her late game is pretty shabby. She does have some early laning pressure, but honestly late game champions got stealth buffs while early game champions got stealth nerfs because games are becoming longer. She still has that average 49-50% win rate while Rammus has a VERY high win rate(around 55%). I see that you have some good points that there are some early pressure around Eve, but no one is really going to be scared of an Eve when late game is really all that matters these games. Also she doesn't have sustain in the jungle, so that's also a nerf to her in this pre-season 4 meta. Eve is still the Queen of YoloQ. She definately doesn't deserve to be in the highest of tier 1 or god tier. Unless there are some type of tweaks or buffs, she's just average at best.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't know if you can actually call Quinn an 'Marksman." Her ult makes her become melee and she has unreliable steroids. Her kit doesn't make sense for her to be an ADC.

    ReplyDelete
  41. bye bye my 70% winrate w/ master beeeeeeeee

  42. Maximilian StephanDecember 17, 2013

    Very nice design. I love it <3.

    Just one thing, if you could link the "Champion Explanations" with the specific Champion you are talking about, I wouldn't have too scroll back all the time. :P

    ReplyDelete
  43. Evelynn depends on blue buff too bro. And way more squishy but I agree with you that she belongs to God tier at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Never stop making these lists man and also the reasonings, All helps me a lot. I like the fact that you reduced the number of champions in God Tier. I have been following you for months now. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  46. But currently Eve ban rate is just behind Kassa so people are really scared of her : /
    I think she deserve it

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why is Rengar balanced? shldnt he be in god or tier 1?

    ReplyDelete
  48. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    He's in Tier 2.

    ReplyDelete
  49. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    He's definitely good and very strong in competitive play. However, I think that in solo queue he's just right.

    ReplyDelete
  50. uhhh.. so wat tier do u think he belongs to then?

    ReplyDelete
  51. The thing is, she doesn't really need CC when she's suddenly right in front of you, Eing and Qing away. You flash? She Ws. And of course she has help from her lane buddies. If she has her ult up, it's definitely a kill. The slow, speed and maybe lane buddy secure it.


    If you win early with her and she's fed, it's done. There is no lategame. If you can't farm, can't get a kill, or you're under constant pressure of being scared that she's around, there is no lategame for you. People don't know how to handle her with the new ward changes.


    But you're right - still 49% - 50%. Why? I think a lot of people don't know how to play Eve, to be honest. She's strong if you know how to play her. Q, E, Q, Q.. back off-W so you're not in the focus, run back, Q, Q, E. And well, use your ult in the right moments, on as many champs as you can. Lots of people just think 'she's a god, good damage, gg', but yes, she's squishy - if you build her wrong and don't know how to position a melee assassin.


    I'm NOT saying she's overpowered, I like her the way she is now. Some people just don't know how to play her properly, and some others don't know how to play against her. Still god tier if you know how to use her, just the same as Swain and Kassadin.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Not as much as Amumu. Amumu has a really hard time if he doesn't get blue. Evelynn has her passive.


    Yes, she's squishy. But she's also an assassin with high damage. If you know how to position yourself, you don't need to be tanky.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Aww Lulu buffs don't make her Tier 1 yet

    ReplyDelete
  54. I feel like this is a "FOTM-and-what-the-pros-are-playing" list rather than a true tier list. IMO a tier list should be based around what champions have the most overpowered kits and can easily carry solo queue games. Also by throwing "meta" around so much you are inherently making this more of a competitive list rather than a solo queue list. That's the idea of solo queue, right? There is much less teamwork and everybody really just picks what they want. Solo queue is the opposite of the meta. While the pros may be playing these "fast engage and tower dive" strategies, I find every single solo queue game a different method of playing.
    Having said that, I still think your list is very well created however I really disagree with Mundo and Shyvana in God tier. Mundo's late game is absolutely terrible and Shyvana's lack of CC makes it incredibly hard to carry. These aren't solo queue god champions, like say Jax is (imho).
    Lastly I think that once people stop playing Yasuo like an assassin and start playing him as a counter-bruiser peeler for ADC, they will find the true strength in his ultimate.

    ReplyDelete
  55. SSJSuntasticDecember 17, 2013

    It's true that by using meta it brings in elements from the competitive scene, but at the same time solo queue players tend to mimic professional picks as well, which causes the "normal" champion selection to move towards that trend.


    The reason Mundo and Shyvana are good are actually due to solo queue reasons as well. Since they're inherently very tanky, use no mana, and clear waves very fast, they can create huge pressure on the map by themselves. While Jax is a very strong "carry" type bruiser, both Mundo and Shyvana play more like Tryndamere, SInged, or Teemo where they're issues that have to be addressed, but are difficult to 1v1 due to their kit.

  60. Karma should be higher on the support list. Atleast balanced tier, if not higher. Her poke rivals Lulu's, and she has just as much CC in a single target/aoe slow, root, and movement speed buff shield.

    ADC Twisted Fate: 19-2-16, 12-3-10, 10-2-9. I don't understand why people don't add it to the tier list, I play it since start of season 2, and let me tell you I never felt so Secure playing him on ranked.

  63. Shen should be higher up I find myself dominating almost every game as Shen and his map presences is unbeatable and his early sustain is great for tough lane match up

    ReplyDelete
  64. Tankgar should be, not glass cannon rengar

    ReplyDelete
  65. Note to my self. Never overextend with an enemy eve.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I feel like this is the most accurate list compared to what I see in games to date. Great work as always and thanks for the frequency of the updates!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Shouldn't Rengar be tier 1? He's been picked often

    ReplyDelete
  68. I main TF really hard since pre-season 1 where he really shined as ADC more than APC...
    Doing such score as you did with TF adc isn't the biggest world discovery but he wouldn't be the best pick ADC to me he got the range of a vayne/urgot sort of and a skillset really similar to Tristana for the main reason that they are all AP.
    You wanna put the mid & end game result with TF & Tristana on paper?

    ReplyDelete
  69. He said twice on previous tier list the reason Shen is lower than he should is that more the game goes on the less damage you will perform! (and so carrying on will be tought...and i said less damage not NO damage! :))
    Right after its the amazing moves you can do with his ult and as SSJ precisely point it...summoners has the reflex to escape or flash away and its not in the hands or more the eyes of anyone to be able focusing the harras of yourself and the one of your ally it's quiet difficult and he is really better pick by far in premade!

    ReplyDelete
  70. i think his 1v1 is accurate for Tier 2 (i may be wrong i didnt even bought it yet :()
    But definitely Tier 1/God Tier in term of splitpushing & tower killer...

    ReplyDelete
  71. Because his skillset?

  72. why wukong is god tier , riven in tier 1 ?? riven is powerful ._.!!

  73. Singed is still really good

    i would consider god tier but i see why he dropped because of the sudden burst of dr mundo and shyvana

  74. Wukong is better at taking down a turret.
    Wukong has better impact in team fight. (Wombo Combo)

    Plus read carefuly the tier list and comment from SSJ.
    The difference between low Tier 1 and Top Tier 2 is EXTREMELY slim...

    ReplyDelete
  75. I see what you mean and i totally agree with your statement but well the main reason i think is legit since SSJ want the God tiers to be the smallest possible.
    Plus has many time explained previously a Tier 1 even Tier 2 champ into good hands is God Material.
    The main reason God is God from SSJ mind is that the champion has low chance of losing the game maybe not the lane since some are freaky in their mechanism!
    But they has got a better chance of comeback and/or impact over teamfights.

  82. I think you've underestimated Quinn's ability to be an ADC. I only play AD and I've pretty much mastered most of the AD champions and I usually play Sivir or Quinn. Sivir is usually better for endgame group fights but when played right Quinn is amazing at kiting and I often find she snowballs better than Sivir and I can usually push much sooner leading to a win around level 14.

  83. vayne should never get down from tier 1, unless they nerf silver bolts, that 3rd hit gives her the best late game among every single adc

  85. LOTRKingluisDecember 18, 2013

    what is your point? There are champion that are tier 4 because they offer few thins on teamfight and late game, for instance, urgot is tier 4 because he sucks late game and in teamfights, but oh, guess what, tf adc isn't on the tier at all :-/


    I dont want you to put twisted fate god tier for god sake, I want you reconsider even adding him on the list.


    besides that, if tristana is an adc and can apc.... why not the opposite with twisted fate?


    it seems like you have a pretty bad comparison. tristana and twisted fate work differently has adc. Twisted fate relies on stuning and bursting as much as he can, while tristana is just basic attacking all the way and then jump to safety.


    adc tf deals more damage than tristana with the right build.

    Honestly adc isnt my best but i can call few D1 or Challenger dudes that will just chock over this sentence...

  93. She's slightly easier to be bulled in bot lane, the range on her snare puts her in some danger, and her ultimate is better as a damage ability than utility.

    She does work better in solo lanes, but she also can work jungle and support. Theory stands as "why should I take Karma support when I can put her mid and put Lulu support".

    ReplyDelete
  94. Define "easier to be bullied." Sure, she has to stay near the enemy to root them but it' still a good distance. Karma is not meant to be a utility support, she is designed for high damage poke. Lulu offers better utility but Karma is more immediately frightening because of her high burst even without ap items. Karma can fit the utility/cc role if needed, but that is simply not why she's used.

  109. For top lane lee sin, I feel that you should move him to the bottom of tier 1 since the nerfs to w. It wasn't anything big but now he can't deny people cs by shielding the creeps right before the enemy goes for the last hit. And then getting a favorable trade if the enemy champ tries to auto the creep to get the gold. Not a very big nerf/change but still something that can be felt. Maybe put him down two spots below Udyr and Nidalee?

  116. Yet another solid list. I would like a little bit of clarification on one thing though. Teemo top tier one seems to be only for solo queue (which i know this list is for). By picking teemo top you're robbing your team of a tank late game and gambling on map dominance, which can be established when teemo roams. In an era of mundo's and riven's (who both fill different roles and do them better than teemo) doesn't teemo fall into disfavor?

    ReplyDelete
  117. I just played Zac, and I found him stronger than I remembered. I ganked a lot early, and got a kill and a few assists. You just have to provide that initial burst and CC to let your teammate secure the kill. Late game, I initiated with that great ult and ended up 6/0/15 :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. SSJSuntasticDecember 21, 2013

    Teemo's damage is just particularly high right now with the new masteries, That combined with the fact that few teams run enough pink wards to keep his shrooms under control make him very strong. Riven's actually one of his easier matchups. While he should avoid going all in on her, by blinding when she E-Ws he can limit her damage to just the spell portion of her Q, getting rid of the danger of her passive. He also tends to build liandries, which does well against a lot of tanky champions top.

    ReplyDelete
  123. SSJSuntasticDecember 21, 2013

    To some extent, the win rate is factored in. However, some champions happen to be played more or less due to popularity. This means that for certain niche champions only people who are good at them play them whereas for more popular champions a lot of people who are unfamiliar with them play them. There's also a lot more factored in than win rate, but if you want to go by that feel free :P

    ReplyDelete
  124. The thing is, your 1v1 power needs to be at Tier 1 or God Tier in order to splitpush effectively otherwise the enemy team could easily send one champion with a better dueling power to shut you down as you split push. So far, a tanky rengar has shown the power not only to sustain himself, but also put out the damage when he's able to complete his set.

    I found a video that was uploaded a few days ago the show Tank Rengar's mechanics. :)

  125. SSJSuntasticDecember 21, 2013

    I generally factor in win rate, how much they can impact a game by themselves, ease of play, how easy they are to shut down, how well they can snowball, how well they can perform if they fall behind, and a little personal bias.

  134. "- recently a lot of AA-dependent, low-CC junglers and top laners have ascended to higher levels of play. FOR EXAMPLE: Olaf, Shyvana, Volibear, Nocturne. Quinn's AOE blind is VERY VIABLE in ganks and fights" Uh well, this is a list for soloQ and it's for ALL levels of play. There will still be the occasional J4 or Rammus

    "- Quinn additionally has a reliable escape (E/R) from all of the above champions." Her E is unreliable as an escape because for a split second it brings her closer to the target and cc can interrupt her E. Her R is unreliable as an escape because all it does is give a speed boost that can be slowed if attacked by an AA or really anything. It's an average escape

    "- Vision changes give Quinn's W a lot more utility. Also: Using W and ulting give her probably the best catch-out power of any adc" Extremely high CD I might add and it's only for a brief moment

    "- Blind, 80% AS buff, and an incredible gap closer as Valor make Quinn a GREAT DUELIST against most adcs" Blind is a skillshot and useless in team fights. AS buff is if you go melee mode, which equals death mode for a marksman. Yeah she has a gap closer, but it's not an incredible one. She's a good duelist yeah, but she won't be dueling in a 5v5.



    No I don't want to give her love. Maybe if she gets some tweaks or buffs to make her fit in the marksman meta

  135. Oh my god, I just played my first Sejuani game this season, with the new jungle. FUCK, she's slow now. It's not even worth killing the new big wraith. Definitely deserved being moved down.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Q is useless, as a support you are not suppose to push.
    W is next to useless; it sounds good but offers the team nothing. Riot should just reduce cooldown for QER and make W a new spell.
    E is a 55% slow/speed up every ~12 seconds. It is good but Nunu can do a better job.
    R is a GA which is amazing. Revive is always amazing.

    Currents supports are tanky like Leona and Taric, hard CC like Janna and Zyra, and/or gives constant sustain/buff like Nunu and Sona (Alistar does all three). Zilean is just different, not tanky, no hard CC, and no constant buff. The only thing Zilean is can do is to revive his team’s DPS. As an ADC or APC I’d rather to live longer, than to revive inside in the enemy formation.

    ReplyDelete
  146. People started paying attention to Mundo just recently...like just a month ago.
    "Since they're inherently very tanky, use no mana, and clear waves very fast" I agreed with this part, but not " they can create huge pressure on the map by themselves". It is the jungler's job to gank and make enemies fear (like Fiddle and Shaco).

    ReplyDelete
  147. Galio is good only against early game AP assassins like LeBlanc and Akali.
    Lacking burst damage is a problem for him. No, his ulti is not mean for damage.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Nah.
    In early game, Teemo can torture late game top carries like Jax, Tryndamere, Nasus etc.
    Mid game, Teemo can give teammates map control.
    Late game, Teemo does fall off in damage, but totally worth it when you score an ace in fountain (yes, those cancerous shrooms).

    Mundo as a support is very interesting. The issue is that he doesn't really have any hard CC, so he can't do much if he falls behind. He's also a very "in your face" type of champion, but needs items to be able to do with without getting smothered. We do see him more often than usual though, so I may have to reconsider giving him a serious support placement considering some of the more obscure supports I have up there.

  152. Q is far from useless it has a decent CD but with W you can double bomb a target and put a lot of damage and it can do a lot in group fights in the back line, the revive can turn team fights a complete 180, the e makes the opponent either secured dead or you secured free, look at The support for the newly form pro team Alliance, he make a Hugh impact and they forced EG to ban him the following game

    Hell man, if Urgot had a even half decent mid-game or late game, he would be definitely viable, but he just has too little to bring to the table, is too mana reliant, and doesn't synergise with any support (other than supportnunuke). If you ever see the pros playing Urgot, please link it to me. Also, I'm pretty sure that Urgot has the lowest win rate of all the champions in the league (Except Yasuo b/c nobody knows how to play him)

    ReplyDelete
  172. in my experience, jinx is one of the best AD carry duelists just because of the burst dmg she does wih her W and R and not to mention having the highest attk speed steroid(130%). She wins in somewhat extended to extended fights, but she loses in short bursty fights. Champions with high burst can just destroy her. Corki has high single target dmg so he definately does beat jinx in 1v1. Ezreal... not really because he has to land all of his skill shots including his ult to really burst jinx down. Varus has those blight stacks and slow, but Jinx would rather win the fight. Lucian would definately win the fight because of his abilities dmg and passive proc. Lucian's one of the best duelists out there because of his passive. Q+AA+W+AA+E+AA including crits and sheen=death.

    Their kits aren't really designed for top lane, and tend to underperform there relative to the jungle. Generally speaking, both of those champions are exclusively played in the jungle, although Nautilus support is functional enough.

    Anivia needs items to do well later on in the game, and support doesn't really provide the necessary gold flow.

    ADCs hardly ever duel each other...


    I believe the reason that those champions were listed as counters is because of their ability to lane reasonably against Jinx and fair well in the late-game, not because of their capacity to fight Jinx in a 1 on 1 engagement.

  178. What are your thoughts on Darius? He's been sitting in Tier 1 for a while, but I think he has really really good potential for crushing lanes.

    It's basically impossible to duel her early, and she has an extremely versatile path when it comes to jungle and counterjungle. When it comes to Shyvana, it's just a matter of numbers; her stats just happen to be high enough to make her a little too fast and a little too strong.

  195. Caitlyn was God Tier simply for her early game which was or is one of the best...many champ from other category are made this way(Riven/Renekton) while others offer tons more in term of teamfight for exemple! (Lucian/Jinx/Sivir)

  197. She is top Tier1 why are you giving so much credit for Riven being God tier?
    You did the most common mistake of people comenting SSJ Tier list by comparing SoloQ to competitive scene...why?
    Nasus & Shyva deserve god tier simply because:
    - They will bullied Riven(like you said).
    - They are quite popular at this moment.
    - They will blow a turret fast than you.
    - And last but not least they dont need to build damage like you and still deal decent amount of damage for their tankiness!

  198. Could you tell me why Volibear is only on tier 2 top? He's able to build resist if he goes against an AP champ and armor against any tanky/assassin champ for easy kills.

  199. If you really like the champs you mention and really consider to play em a lot in future i might sugest you SpellVamp Quint. It synergy great (Swain for his Ult, Mordekaiser for his HP skill cost) but thats a 6k ip expense so to be considered!(Since they aint as good for other AP picks...maybe Vlad/Morgana!)
    The build you can find it on guides to start on but you will see later in time that you will never do the same build (mostly your 4-5-6th items) they tend to be frequently different.
    Good luck on the SR! :)
