Hi everyone and welcome back to the latest in the FOTM series. In this patch, Ekko's risen to the top of the ban list with Ryze trailing a close second. Surprisingly, Leblanc still holds a key spot on the ban priority ladder, although she's been nerfed significantly.

Thresh remains the uncontested favorite support of bot lane, although Morgana still draws more bans. Check out the full listing below!

Instructions and Caveats:
  • This tier list details which champions are most popular in today's current metagame, for better or for worse. Selecting a high popularity champion and doing mediocre is always favorable to selecting a low tier champion and doing mediocre for team morale.

Champion Explanations

  • Alistar [Tier 1 Support] - With his extremely high impact initiation and dive power, Alistar is a fast favorite for those that like to play aggressively and initiate for the team. Additionally, with his heal, he can easily shift to a sustain lane as well. Although his headbutt pulverize requires more skill than other similar level CC skills, the short cooldown and satisfying feeling pulling it off has finally brought this cow back to the top.
  • Azir [Tier 1 Mid] - With some of the fanciest plays in the game, the Emperor of Shurima has captured the hearts of many summoners. A champion with an extremely high skill requirement, Azir isn't for beginners, but certainly packs a massive punch if you can master him.
  • Bard [Tier 1 Support] - After an initial shaky start, Bard's quickly become one of the most beloved champions on the rift with his unique and diverse skillset. His skills do take some getting used to in order to use correctly, but the short cooldown on his two-man stun means that a high level of proficiency makes him potentially very good.
  • Cho'Gath [God Tier Top] - After a stint of AP Cho'Gaths mid, he's finally evened out the playing field and sees equal play top lane as well.
  • Ekko [God Tier Top] - The newest member on the rift, his 1v1 dueling potential is immense. Although he's still somewhat squishy as an assassin type, his outplay potential is through the roof.
  • Kha'Zix [Tier 1 Jungle] - The newest buffs to Kha'Zix have reminded us all what kind of raw power this reset master has. There's nothing like getting one shot by a flying bug before he lands to make you feel powerless.
  • Malzahar [Tier 2 Mid] - After being at the top of the win rate charts for as long many people can remember, it looks like Malzahar's time to shine has come around in the form of popularity. Seems like nerfs in a few months are inevitable.
  • Renekton [Tier 1 Top] - Ever since his last set of buffs, Renekton's making a slow and steady comeback on the charts and the hearts of the populace. His lane dominance is still there, and coupled with the new Black Cleaver, he's now a staple again.
  • Ryze [God Tier Top] - Despite a strong falling off in win rate these last couple patches, the terror of Ryze still keeps many awake at night. 
  • Shen [Tier 2 Top] - After spending a multitude of patches in the lower rungs of the stadium, Shen's slowly working his way back up after repeated nerfs on other popular top laners.
  • Vayne [God Tier ADC] - Ever since the league of tanks made its way onto the rift, Vayne's been seeing great success lately. This, coupled with the fact that many other ADCs have been nerfed since Vayne's last dominant spree have left her in an excellent position to take over.
  • Vi [God Tier Jungle] - Can't keep a good jungler down. Despite number nerfs around the board, Vi still eventually manages to come back. There's something exceedingly satisfying about her ultimate asserting her dominance over an inevitable dunk that keeps you coming back for more.
  • The purpose of this list is for discussion and to provide a starting point for hero selection.

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


  1. MasterOfMetalJune 23, 2015

    This list basically never changes haha

  2. koolaidfromthehoodJune 23, 2015


  3. Jordan LewisJune 23, 2015

    ekko sucks. this guy is an idiot.

  4. jimjam127June 23, 2015

    I think it would take a while for any serious change to occur since it's the FOTM list. Only time or a drastic buff/nerf to certain champs would influence any real shift. Katarina is still queen of resets and has massive burst regardless of changes and the league of tanks is still alive and well. There's no reason for it to change with the current meta at the moment.

  5. Jordan LewisJune 23, 2015

    This guy makes no sense. Ekko is bad. This list is bad.

  6. This tier list starts to look more and more like the metalol one.

  7. paylaimboJune 23, 2015

    Just to announce Ekko jgl ; is pretty strong ; it´s also played in LCS ; it shouldnt be tier 2 .. or kinda

  8. paylaimboJune 23, 2015

    And leblanc midlane isn´t that strong anymore since the last patches ; she still got a decent laning ; but she isn´t that strong anymore .So get her tier 1

  9. ConfusedTeemoJune 23, 2015

    What you said has no impact on this list. This one is based on play/ban rate

  10. ConfusedTeemoJune 23, 2015

    What I said on other comment. If you are new here there is a solo q tier list(a new one will come out within a few days of each patch) where tour comments would be completely valid

  11. ConfusedTeemoJune 23, 2015

    This list is a popularity contest and not based on strength.

  12. 5.12 tomorrow :/

  13. Puddleglum567 .June 23, 2015

    Naut support should be god tier. He's banned a lot when I play my silver smurf

  14. Jim PaponettiJune 23, 2015

    didnt say it wasnt

  15. LeBlanc is god tier cuz people like to play high skill-cap champs even if they're not good at them. Same thing with Lee Sin and Thresh.

  16. ConfusedTeemoJune 23, 2015

    This is so frustrating in ranked... They play ______ in LCS so they must be op. I will carry so hard with this (goes 2-10-2 on Azir)

  17. MrNiceGuyJune 24, 2015

    Vlad top or Vlad mid, what do u think is better?

  18. top probably, he deals better against his laners there.

  19. Josh ThurlowJune 26, 2015

    SSJ, it says you added Naut top, but I can't find him on here.

  20. Has anyone else noticed that these tier lists have been getting released later and later? Also, any thoughts on the patch 5.12 buffs to Tryn/split pushers?

  21. Brendan CookJune 27, 2015

    Ive actually been seeing a lot more karthus than normal, and my games with him, even against zed and talon, in my opinion some of his biggest counters, I have been dominating. He seems like a really strong pick right now. but then again I am just playing normals

  22. I am playing at silver right now. I'm a Nautilus. Yet to see him banned in past couple of patches

  23. ezreal mid is now good ap because of smite item
