2015 Champion Tier List - Solo Queue - Patch 5.5 Update

1226 comments
In the newest rendition of the Tier List, Patch 5.5 brings in strong diversity back to the jungle in the form of Bami's Cinder, an item that now allows tanky junglers to clear extremely quickly while scaling up in damage throughout the game.

SEASON 5 - PATCH 5.5 SOLO QUEUE TIER LIST
"Division Climbers"

This List has been updated, and new versions are available via this link

Preface Chatter

Hi everyone and welcome to a the newest edition of the Solo Queue Tier List "Division Climbers". Some of you may have been confused why Sejuani and Amumu were so low on the FOTM tier list, released earlier today. Well let's just say it hasn't caught on quite yet, but I expect it to quickly come around to a must-ban status.

This patch's jungle changes means a ton of moves on the jungler positions on the tier list. While early in the patch, I'll likely shift things around as the community sets into a groove with the new changes. Check out the full listing below!

If you're looking for a more meta based tier list based on popularity, be sure to check out the FOTM list as well!

Instructions and Caveats:

  • 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.
  • This tier list takes data from ALL players; however, since the majority of players fall in the first three tiers, the majority of data points will come from there.
  • Win Rates are important in analyzing each champion's strength, but are not the end-all criteria for any champion's position.
  • The creator of this list is diamond, so there may be some personal bias towards higher tier play on certain champions.

Champion Explanations

  • Azir [Tier 4 Mid] - Azir's definitely stronger this time around, but the buffs Riot provided him are less than exemplary. He's still a very underwhelming presence right now on the rift, which is only amplified by his high skill cap.
  • Bard [Tier 2 Support] - A champion with plenty of utility and fun spells, I think for solo queue he suffers from some coordination difficulties and relies heavily on excellent judgement from both Bard and his teammates. However, I think he'll make his way into top of the professional and solo queue scene for sure.
  • Blitzcrank [God Tier Support] - Blitzcrank is definitely very strong right now, but for most tiers I'd say Leona is a better bet. His play-making ability is through the roof, but does require strong burst damage from your enemy team in order to be effective.
  • Hecarim [God Tier Top] - A newcomer to the God Tier Top laners, Hecarim is absolutely insane right now. His sustained damage, initiation power, and burst damage are all shockingly high. It's very difficult to escape from one simply because of his raw speed, and once he starts snowballing it's impossible to avoid him.
  • Kassadin [Tier 4 Mid] - Despite slight buffs to him, Kassadin is still hypernerfed. Definitely needs a rework at this point. Slightly stronger this patch for sure though.
  • Lissandra [Tier 2 Top] - After nerfs on Lissandra, she's much more in-line with other champions. Expect Vladimir and Kennen to take over her place top lane when it comes to mage bullies.
  • Nautilus [Tier 1 Jungle] - The combination of Nautilus' personal buffs along with the introduction of the new jungle item have breathed new life into Nautilus. His jungle clear and damage is very comparable to other junglers now, and his CC is still through the roof. I suspect in another patch or two he'll start gaining heavy popularity so use him while you still can.
  • Nidalee [Tier 2 Jungle] - Nidalee nerfs coupled with buffs on other junglers have made her fairly balanced. In the right hands she still snowballs very hard, but she isn't nearly as faceroll as before.
  • Nunu [Tier 1 Jungle] - Buffs via the new jungle item have helped him as well. Additionally, against the slightly slower clear times of tank junglers, Nunu does very well during invades early on. He's definitely a force to be reckoned with now.
  • Sejuani [God Tier Jungle] - The new item is absolutely insane on Sejuani and Amumu, and synergizes so well that their win rates are shooting through the roof. This is what happens when you nerf the other junglers and introduce a new item that perfectly synergizes with her kit. We're definitely going to be seeing a lot more of her in the upcoming weeks.
  • Vi [Tier 1 Jungle] - The nerf on Vi was fairly strong in terms of her level 6 ganking potential. However, it's really the new jungler items that have weakened her significantly. However, I think she's still very strong at the moment.
  • Volibear [God Tier Jungle] - I may or may not get a lot of flack for this one, but the new jungle item also synergizes EXTREMELY well with Volibear, and I think he's exceedingly powerful right now. This coupled with nerfs on Morellon a few patches back have slowly but surely brought him back into a powerhouse status. Again, I could be jumping the gun on this one, but I really think he's very good at the moment. We'll check back in a few days once more data comes in.

  1. I think Lissandra should still be low tier 1 due to the amount of CC she brings.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Do you really see Zac still tier 3 in jungle? I mean, besides of the new jungle item, the CC of his E has been doubled in duration, which seems like a pretty huge buff to me.

    wow i just so happened to be lucky enough to stumble across the new tier list nice. my duo partner mains nautilus, volibear skarner and poppy jungle. patch 5.5 mustve been a christmas miracle for him as well as me since we are both enjoying the freelo!

  4. Steven NadlerMarch 14, 2015

    I think Azir needs to be placed a little higher. Rushing Morello and Luden's Echo is extremely powerful on him right now.

    Kassadin still tier 4 wtf ?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Once again, I would like to shameless plug my Bard Guide http://www.lolking.net/guides/335903


    I'd personally shuffle the Teir 1 and Teir 2 support picks slightly. Ignoring Bard's win rate for the moment, I think he deserves lower Teir 1 - his playmaking potential is great, but his damage is absurdly low. Blitzcrank honestly does higher damage in laning phase.


    I think Thresh should replace where Taric is. In terms of damage, poke, all in, CC, and overall utility, Thresh is higher - Taric only outshines Thresh in terms of a point-and-click CC and ease of play, as well as mediocre sustain. I think that warrants Taric as Balanced and Thresh as strong.


    While Zyra and Vel'Koz provide decent damage, CC, and poke, their lack of sustain, beefiness, and unique utility spells (like a Bard E or Thresh W) I think should put them at balanced. Just my two cents, as I feel much more strongly about where Thresh should go.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The new jungle item is so good on Amumu. It's as if they buffed the fuck out of his W. The return of the %25 bonus health is also great for Volibear and Zac and other health stackers. I could see Mundo jungle becoming more popular than his top lane role, although his mediocre ganks would keep him out of tier 1.

    ReplyDelete
  9. So will is Poacher's Knife super good on Nunu now?

    ReplyDelete
  10. JuandermanMarch 14, 2015

    Totally agree on Volibear jungle, but I also think Kassadin is not deserving of tier 4. His ult has 1.2 second CD (max CDR) which is nothing to laugh at. It's not like his damage is underwhelming or anything, and it's near impossible to catch him late game. Sure, it's only 500 range but people are way over-exaggerating his nerf.

    Thoughts on Skarner?

  12. SSJSuntasticMarch 14, 2015

    I don't think Tristana very good right now. Her late game is still strong, but her early-mid game trades are a bit poor compared to the more popular adcs.

    ReplyDelete
  13. SSJSuntasticMarch 14, 2015

    Actually, he's probably close to Tier 2 now. Moving him up~

    ReplyDelete
  14. Messaiga .March 14, 2015

    Also interested in this. I play him a lot and I seem to be able to reproduce consistent results with him, but his itemization is still a bit awkward for me (hard to decide between IBG and Trinity, even when snowballing). Had a Kha'Zix on my team tell me he was OP, though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. JuandermanMarch 14, 2015

    One of my main junglers, he's very snowba.ly and and can do tons of damage and be super tanky and slippery. Usually build something like chilling smite cinderhulk, boots (usually mercs) then sheen, tank item, finish triforce, full tank. Also, if you're ahead, Abyssal Scepter is a good item on him, believe it or not, and it pairs well with the two sunfires you'll probably have,

    ReplyDelete
  16. Its funny how I am a jungle main and i played like loads of nautilus and serjuani wayy before ths patch, my team askes why i said cuz cc, guess why they are tier 1 now? :/

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think that he was stronger with the elder lizard passive true damage burn. And he wasn't god-tier then, but he was strong and a good duelist. Now, without it, he is less effective. Itemization for a lot of tanks is pretty awkward right now. In the jungle you can't get CDR very well w/o sacrificing use of the cinderhulk passive.

    ReplyDelete
  18. In the right situation, definitely! I just wouldn't buy it against at Lee, shaco or vi. Against Nautilus, Sejuani or J4 it can work really well.

    ReplyDelete
  19. themonsoonMarch 14, 2015

    I really like playing janna and im a support main. However people have told me it is extremely hard to win games as janna or any other traditional support because of bad adcs and low damage in bronze-silver. If i want to climb as a support is it really necessary to switch to a mage support like Zyra?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Messaiga .March 14, 2015

    You can (sorta) get back the Elder Lizard passive true damage if you were to build Skirmisher's Sabre. I imagine it would be good if you didn't need to peel in teamfights.

    ReplyDelete
  21. New item has improved tanks, ok, but do you guys think that fact has made fall down the other junglers as Jarvan (From Strong to balanced for example) ??

    ReplyDelete
  22. definitely not against Lee or Vi, but Shaco can't clear camps well before he gets his hydra and he spends more time banking than clearing so I think it'd still be good against Shaco.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Don't you think that the changes to naut helped his support roll? The short cd on his e is pretty major.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Exevier EtcheverryMarch 15, 2015

    Can you add Jarvan fall explanation? ^^ I think that Jarvan tier 2 is too much for him. Tier 1 is more appropiate for him. Well, he is still one of the best gankers, initation, a lot of damage and a decent cleaning.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Miles AtchisonMarch 15, 2015

    Its not necessarily a mage support. More of a play making support. Blitz, leona, thresh and the like all can create opprotunities very easily. Janna is more about removing mistakes that your team makes.

  26. What is up with hec jungle?

  30. SSJSuntasticMarch 15, 2015

    Needs really good timing on her tumbles to be viable, not really worth the trouble at the moment.

  31. SSJSuntasticMarch 15, 2015

    They took his armor passive away and buffed all his rivals.

    ReplyDelete
  32. SSJSuntasticMarch 15, 2015

    If your team can survive until the time where Kassadin is useful, they should have won the game 15 minutes earlier :-/

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bard has the potential in his kit to be top tier, but can be a throw machiene as well, at least from the experience i had with one who saved our enemy team from our orianna's ult. I think his problem will be that he is inconsistent, a good ult can win a game, a bad one can lose it

    ReplyDelete
  34. janna is a good pick imo, ssj put her in god tier for a reason. She's my go to champion when i have to support and so far im being successful with her, like the guy above me said she can remove the mistakes your team makes which in solo queue is very valuable. She might not make plays but she can negate plays which makes her a good pick.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thoughts on Karthus?

  36. StokeDaddyCMarch 15, 2015

    So I have a bet with my brother that Urgod will make tier 1 before my brother makes platinum. $50 and now Urgod has been buffed... I might as well start spending my 50 bucks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, urgot's buff in last patch was insane ! You could place him at the top of tier 3 SSJ ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Michael RosekMarch 15, 2015

    Personally, I'd put reksai back in tier 1 and consider rengar up there as well, because cinder is really strong on them like it is with many other junglers. I'd also suggest dr mundo a high tier 2 pick in the jungle.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    u should switch her with kog maw. although he has no escape hes possibly the best long ranged late game adc atm. people dont play him enough

    ReplyDelete
  40. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    i feel like corki is god tier but i just dont know why he doesnt have an above 50% winrate.
    his only 2 nerfs ddint even touch his damage:
    -50+ mana on W
    -a slight increase in time on Q to land


    are people really that bad at landing skillshots?


    but foreal if YOU yes YOU think u are a good adc. and i know u think ur the best out there. then u should definetly play corki he has little to know weaknesses besides mana costs early game.


    there really is no reason NOT to pick him up. u will be suprised how much damage he does mid game

    ReplyDelete
  41. Do you earn money everytime corki is played?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Doing it since season 4 :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    i only earn 50% the rest goes to the big man

    ReplyDelete
  44. Early Game- he has considerable damage for a Top lane Bruiser while still being tanky and a lot of cc which makes it easy to set up a gank. He can out-damage a lot of melee champs that goes into Top Lane if he lands his skills correctly and has a 2nd chance with his passive (Not that he really needs it)

    However, when he gets late game, he is a tanking god that is just so annoyingly frustrating to kill.

    Lots of cc, moderate amount of damage while being tanky, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    graves and jinx dump on her. aswell as corki caitlyn... oh who am i kidding she freaking sucks!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I made a post on lol forums, but in french, explaining all his weakness and why i think he needs buffs. A little sum-up : Bards is squishy. His ult is too long to cast. His Q spell is too short to place it on enemies in lane. And finally, chimes don't give too much xp, so that Bard have two or three levels less than the midlaner all along the game.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    riot keeps giving him small buffs and they are starting to add up. its wierd how ssjsuntastic moved him down after the recent buff. i was expecting him to jump the gun as usual and put him in first spot god tier lol. #velkozthedream

  48. Sejuani is such freelo at the moment. Almost out of bronze.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    anyone else think velkoz is insanely strong in teamfights? i think he could possibly be god tier or scraping tier 1

    ReplyDelete
  50. Jacob WhiteMarch 15, 2015

    can you explain nunu being tier 1 to me, he has no mobility, shitty damage, terrible ganks, can't carry, and if you're team is even slightly behind it becomes 4v5 because he can't make a comeback. His clear is slower than most junglers because you just sit there awkwardly auto attacking camps, and he is also a tank with no hard cc or mobility for engagements.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Admiral AokijiMarch 15, 2015

    janna is a passive support. shes more about protecting the adc than jumping on the enemy so the adc can kill them. focus on protecting ur teamates more than killing things. support is easy once u learn how to peel

  52. Brooklyn BennetMarch 15, 2015

    I feel as though Hecarim is countered extremely hard by ranged top laners, but that might just be me. What are your thoughts and advice on countering ranged top laners as hecarim? Thanks!
    On a side note, what warrants Hecarim jg to be god? Just curious as his sustain and clear isnt too hot and he is extremely gold reliant. Once again, thanks for writing these wonderful articles!

    ReplyDelete

  59. calle perssonMarch 15, 2015

    Yes and in my opinion the reason why people dont get the most out of corki is that they don't abuse his ridiculous powerspikes he has. He has 2 that you really should use to it's fullest potential.

    When you have your sheen your aas do so much more damage and it's like having a bf sword combined with the extra damage on Qs and rockets. To use this to the fullest potential is to poke in lane, combine with AAs, Gatling gun etc. This item has gotten me so many kills in lane when I poke abit first.


    The second Powerspike is the triceforce with sorc shoes.

    This powerspike is borderline disgusting since you have the burst to take a squishy target to half health with one Q / aa. His powerspike here is ridiculous and if you group with your team you will outdamage any adc in a teamfight unless he's gotten stupidly fed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. calle perssonMarch 15, 2015

    It's because the new cinderhulk item made them stupidly strong and they acually do significant damage without having to sacrifice defensive stats.

  61. CejastrikeMarch 15, 2015

    Depends on the ranged toplaner. Something like Lissandra, who can stop him yeah, or Vladimir who outsustains him at +7 lvl (at lvl 3 Heca wins if he does an all in). But Heca's kit allows him to all in almost everyone and once at melee range he wrecks.

  65. Nunu is an absolute monster when played correctly. he's got unlimited and unrivaled sustain in the jungle. doesn't need a leash, incredibly fast clear times. he was never intended as a ganking jungler thus your logic is incorrect his main use is to get the enemy jungler behind and turn it into a 4v5. he's got incredible objective control in the new season since he can easily do drag at lvl 3 (and fast too) leading to an early lane advantage globally (and if the enemy jungler isn't good at drag timers a massive disadvantage as they will almost never know when the drag is up). during team fights he gives a great buff to the ADC via his W (bloodboil) and also while his E does considerable damage without any AP and it also applies a decent slow but more importantly a massive AS DEBUFF on the enemy ADC given the mandatory frozen hearth you build on him and the passive aura it gives, you basically make the enemy ADC useless since he'll be out-traded every time.

    Hey SSJ can you rethink about Kassadin tier 4. He isn't really that bad if you can get into late game with him. Hard to shut him down after 6 too because his mobility is stupid. Pre 6 just farm under turret and pick people off late game. If you really think he's complete garbage can I get some sort of explanation?

  73. Best thing about not building sunfire anymore, is that u can rush randuins, save an slot, and give your tanks/off tanks junglers a very powerful tankiness early on. Cinderhulk is just too good to be true. Shyv for example, is a monster on the jungle right now.

    top lane now is more focused toward snowballing and lane bullies who can stop snowball or just tanky initiator,maokai as a tank haven't got good snowball potential,lacks a powerful engage and is definitely a weak laner compared to other.
    skarner jungle deserve tier 1 i agree
    urgot top is just the same urgot with a bit stronger shield and less cd's cooldown,still underperforming.
    kassa maybe is a bit better with a bruiser build in top rather than mid

    all the ranged top laners are a bit too weak for really bully hecarim,vladimir is one of the most annoying things in the world but he's played not that much,kennen cannot outrun you and he definitely not bully you if you play decently while lissandra just all in her and she die,also her q nerf helps you a lot.
    also after level 6 if you froze the lane and call the jungler is preyy easy since no one can escape lev 6 hecarim :D and if the gank was succesfull you just snowball and they wouldn't touch you anymore

    ReplyDelete
  87. NotEnglish But Spaghetti :DMarch 15, 2015

    nunu' strenght doesn't come from ganking everyday but rather stealing all the enemy jungler's camp and made it out alive since no one can outrun him at early levels cause e+w is very strong for escape.
    if you steal all the camps the enemy jungler which in this patch is probably a tank will be set behind and your team wll benefit from that.
    nunu's clear are fast with cinderhulk and i don't know why you say they are slow,maybe you max e idk.
    late game nunu ISN'T AN INITIATOR,really in season 5 people still thinks nunu can use a flash+ulti for engage?
    nunu's ult should be used for peel for the carry or counter-engage,look at that plesky jax jumping on your carry and get slowed as hell,also with frozen hearth and e spam you kill carry's atk spd while making your carry a god with bloodboil

    I kinda disagree with the Kassadin placement, or at least the "in need of rework" status. All you really need to do is farm early and you do fine later. Now he's a lot harder to lock down too, great for little jungle skirmishes mid game (although with admittedly not all the much damage unless snowballed).

  101. MisterKan3March 15, 2015

    Might I ask why Viktor is still in tier 2 while Hecarim is moved up to God tier? They both have had pretty strong results in solo Q and even more in competitive play. Shouldn't Viktor at least be in T1 now, since he's most certainly stronger than lux and ziggs at the moment and has great synergy with Luden's Echo?

  113. Yes... BARD is FUCKING hard to use and weirdo... In my own opinion he is tier 2-tier 1... not my own favourite. Ultimate is hard to use usefully. it should be this; enemy gets put into the stunned stance BUT they CAN TAKE DAMAGE!!!? Would be OP? but it's no use if they just get put into un-targetable state.... useless :p just gives them cooldown timers burns seconds and allows you to re-position.

    And your allies and minions should be un-targetable. Then the ultimate would be a lot nicer. Also make it so turrets would be vulnerable during the stun also....

    In my first game I was so embarrassed, I ult during siege/tower push, and the enemy comes when my ult ended.... x_____x ugh......

    Graves should be first in God-Tier... Sivir Second and Jinx last. Why, cause Graves is a full armored ADC right now... You can use Health Seals on him and he should be a nightmare, even if yoyure bad at him, Sivir snowballs pretty hard and counters Graves pretty bad, kiting-spellshield and even a flash reposition can destroy him and jinx. and I think Jinx is pretty off--- Definitely not Graves or Sivir tier right now... I just hope they three don't get nerfed... They're my favorite ADC's. altough I don't main ADC at all

  139. ScarfedGaryBuseyMarch 15, 2015

    Considering this is bronze-gold tier list rek sai top has no business in not being god tier, simply put nothing in melee has such a dominant laning phase atm, with all the tools to win lane via ranged poke,instant hard cc, gap closers and multiple when you put them in bushes, fantastic bush control, counters stealth junglers and provides vision on them regardless in bushes, great sustain, built in waveclear (3 abilitys to do so even) as well as global pressure seeing as tport and her ult allow her to be anywhere on the map for a large portion of the game.


    It only helps too that she can splitpush fantastically as well performing kinda as a jax in that regard, by going hydra into tri force then tank not only are you unkillable with all the mobility and sustain but 1v1ing is extremely hard due to the high late game passive sustain and the aoe lifesteal on hydra (all increased even more by spirit visage).


    She really has no bad lane matchups that are melee atm only even ones are those that can have great early sustain and trade evenly with her, which so far seems to be hecarim (forcing him to go oom after a few trades) and renekton, though you will outscale renek in the later portions of the game.


    As for ranged having a long distance gap closer and hard instant cc along with burst pairs really well in comboing down the squishy ranged top champs for easy kills.


    All in all people for some reason in seeing her best in jungle when she preforms best in top seeing as after the first round of nerfs she fell off in top but not in jungle. Try her out for the freelo that folows.

    hey guys me and my friend (duo partner) got in a stubborn arguement and i need someone outside of our messagebox to fill us in:
    so my friend went from silver 2 to gold 5 in 2 days after patch 5.5 and i told him its because of the buffs he got to his favorite junglers. Hes the type of guy that always claims to play out of the meta.. i told him "naut voli skarner are all in meta and thats why ur climbing" i proceeded to tell him that winrates play a huge part in how effective a champion is in solo Q.


    His arguement is that those buffs didnt help him climb. when they clearly did according to how his record was before and after patch 5.5. he believes that winrate just means if u are retarded u have a better chance of winning games as sion, sej ,blitz etc. but i told him that u still have to know how the game works and u cant just win if u dont know what u are doing.


    anivia is a good example of a champion with a very high winrate and she is one of the most complex to master in the game. i dont really think some retard can go and play her and have a better chance of winning. every champion needs practice even katarina and sej.


    The main problem i have is that clearly the reason he is climbing is because the buffs made naut stronger and he doesnt want to believe this. all of his mains got buffed so this is clearly making an impact on his games.


    so i decided to test him by asking him to play evelynn(whom has a very crappy winrate) for 10 games and see how it goes.


    he responded by saying he only likes hard engage junglers..... this is where i think i got him by the *ss
    because eve IS a hard engage jungler. she sneaks up and hard engages with her ult however i told him that he would not be able to climb with her because eves kit is not good for this meta.


    *on a side note he thinks that the veigar rework was actually good... and thinks tristana is broken right now. also in every game he plays he claims to be a platinum smurf because he says thats how he gets what he wants. he looks up every single game he plays on lolnexus... why do people do that? who gives a flying f*ck about the enemies record. dont look up the enemy because that might intimidate u or make u overconfident


    so heres my request. like this comment if u think im right and comment if u think im wrong. Thank you sorry if this was a little long but seriously someone needs to put this guy in his place because he obviously wont listen to one person

  146. Kaleb12334March 15, 2015

    SSJ, why isn't urgot discussed on the list after his buffs? I feel that the buffs he received are actually pretty huge; the 8% max mana scaling on his W does him a ton of good. He gets about a 60 more health from his shield at level 4 when normally skilled, and with the 1400 mana from tear and frozen heart plus his base mana of about 850 at level 14 when he'd have those items, gives him 180 extra shield health while only losing 20 in return in the base numbers. Additionally the ult CD was shortened, which is fairly insignificant but a buff non the less. Anyways I do believe the shield buff allows urgot to always max his E second giving him higher damage while also being innately tanker, which in turn allows him to ult in teamfights and live even longer. Maybe he's still a tier 4 adc (except I think in bruisers all in comps he is a very strong choice), but I think he should be much higher in top and mid lanes, low tier 2 and low tier 3 respectively.

    I'm desagree with a few points:

    I think that Syndra should be moved up to tier 2. She has been tier 3 since Riot nerf her, the main problem in her nerf was her stun. Currently with 10 games of practice you can hit stun easilier and do not forget that the hitbox of her stun was buffed. She still has a lot of utility and damage. Furthermore, the current popular picks benefits her matchups, in fact, all popular picks are countered by Syndra (Leblanc, Katarina, Lissandra, Viktor, Nidalee, Cassiopeia, and others) and her main counters was nerfed (Ahri and Fizz as assassin, Akali and Yasuo).

    This topic has touched quite a while. It is about Zyra mid, I think that she should be mid of tier 2. I know that she can root the entire enemy team and provides a lot of damage and utility. But she is probably the most squishy midlaner, whether while it is true that she has a decent range she can practicaly never use her E defensively because her E has a lot of cast time. Almost always you use her E to catch enemies or save your alies. Also she has not mobility, she has 325 of movement speed (the lowest in game) any mage has that movement speed except Lissandra and Anivia, they has a lot of survival in their skills. Other mages has much more MS than Zyra, for example, Leblanc has 335 of MS and she has two dashes... On another subject, she is very skilled and I think that she should be tier 2. She is good, a lot of damage and utility but she has her weaknesses very marked.

    Right, Fiddlesticks is a better support than Bard...

    I don't see how Fiddle is even a tier 2 support... much less better than an actual support. I know there's the troll potential of Bard but honestly you can troll with every champion.

    Bard isn't tier 2 because he is "a troll champion" (because as you say, every champion can be troll). Bard is tier 2 because the same reason that why Thresh is tier 2.

  184. Mmyeah I agree with you, hhhuanderMan.


    FiddleStiX support.... let me see; fucking high mana costs, no blue buff like jungle fiddler, awesome CC, decent dmg at least if gets enough gold, Squishy, no sustain for ADC.


    But I have to say also, BARD is decent, however far from one of my favourites.

  186. I agree with you HhhuanderMan that fiddle is not a good support at all..... i think he is tier 3 belongs or MAX tier 2... bard in my opinion is tier 2 or max 1.

    I'm on a 7 game winning streak playing only jungle Voli. (Bronze 1, but still...) He is very strong. The only real counter to him is ranged CC. I always ban Morgana.

    First counterpoint, while yeah she can root a whole team..... it is hard to land her e on so many people at once XD she does however have a huge ass AoE knockup, and while yes she is squishy she can zone better than any other mid laner imo, plus who needs mobility when you have free wards :)

    lol I don't think she's much better than any god until tier 1 champions


    I've faced her w/ Jax, Riven and Vlad and I won lane, maybe that's cause I've never seen a very good top rek'sai, idk

    yeah I'm a big fan of his kit as well, but he's where he belongs (tier 2) because requires quite some ability to realy master.

    Amumu, Sivir and Annie are viable and cheap champions right now, and are pretty easy to play and consistent after 3-4 games.

    Anyone else ever try Xin mid? I've been messing around with it lately and it's fairly strong. It's really similar to Wu mid, but you have early CC. Really easy to all-in at level 3 and pick up a kill. Strong roams too. I would really suggest giving it a try.

    So I finally decided to buy wukong and join the whole wukong mid trend that's been happening on this site.
    Holy shit it is a million times better than I expected, he's essentially if Leblanc was AD and had amazing teamfight. Only problem I find he has is when he's against people who sit under tower.
