Hi everyone! Welcome to the latest update for Patch 6.12! As you can see from the top of the screen, we are also developing some Overwatch content, but the main focus of this site will still be on League. Meanwhile, Irelia continues to dominate this patch, and some other popular top laners are starting to be more effective as a result of the marksmen meta shifting.

Hecarim also made a massive surge to the top this week, mostly attributable to the changes on Trinity Force, which benefit him all around. Check out the full listing below!

As always, don't forget to like the site on Facebook if you haven't already!

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

  • Anivia [God Tier Mid] - After a shaky start in the mage rework patch, Riot quickly buffed Anivia back up into an extremely dominant burst mage. In her current rendition, her numbers are more than high enough to take out enemy carries with ease. Additionally, the meta is starting to switch bring back marksmen like without blinks, which means her wall is extremely effective against the majority of teams.
  • Ashe [God Tier Marksman] - A bit of a dark horse, Ashe is absolutely surging in popularity now that Lucian has been nerfed and everyone is looking for the next best thing. Her poke damage and trade potential is top tier, and the fact that Wildturtle's been hyping her definitely helps her standing. As one of the only self-initiating marksmen, Ashe works well in solo queue as long as the player picks his shots carefully.
  • Darius [God Tier Top] - Some of you may be wondering why Darius is all of a sudden moving up. He has always been extremely dominant in terms of laning phase, but suffered when it came time to pin down the Lucian/Ezreal domination in every game. However, similar to Anivia, now that immobile carries are coming back, Darius is quickly rising in strength.
  • Ekko [Tier 1 Top] - After nerf after nerf after nerf, Ekko is now fairly balanced, despite having a kit full of outplay maneuvers.
  • Gangplank [God Tier Top] - As one of the few champions left with a truly "global" ultimate, Gangplank's ability to influence bot lane without even teleporting is immense. Additionally, the new changes to Trinity Force actually helped him out quite a bit. Originally, we thought it would be an overall nerf with the crit to attack speed move. However, the change allows him to be a stronger split pusher and objective-controlling champion compared to before. The extra cooldown is also insanely important on Gangplank, and allows him to start scaling harder, faster.
  • Hecarim [God Tier Jungle] - Hecarim is one of those champions that always seems to cycle around. Similar to Rammus, he has the ability to gank lanes from otherwise impossible locations, and straight through any wards you may have set up. The latest changes in Trinity force swapped out Crit for attack speed and twice as much cooldown reduction. With this plus Cinderhulk, Hecarim quickly snowballs into a high damage tank, resulting in a very powerful horse.
  • Illaoi [Tier 1 Top] - Illaoi is in an excellent spot right now. I know many people are saying she is God Tier status now, but I think she does still has her flaws. If you have someone that avoids her E, then her damage output reduces significantly, and she becomes prone to poor trades upon missing, like Blitzcrank. That being said, she definitely dishes out some insane damage and is worth looking at.
  • Sion [Tier 1 Top] - Sion is dropping to Tier 1, but he is still very strong now. He does a ton of damage for a tank, but since the nerfs on all tank items, some other champions are better picks. However, he almost never gets banned, so he may be a good pick to main.
  • Taliyah [Tier 1 Mid] - Taliyah is performing surprisingly well as a tanky spellcaster. Her chase and kiting potential is very high, and she is making a strong showing at most divisions now that she has been buffed a little. 
  • Xin Zhao [Tier 2 Jungle] - Xin Zhao got a minor buff this patch, but it was not enough to pull him into any sort of overpowered status. I say he is fairly balanced right now. Riot may start hitting him with a few more buffs though, they seem to like him.
