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

  • Katarina [Tier 1 Mid] - As the game meta continuously moves away from poke-type strategies back into all-in strategies, Katarina continues to grow in power. She was always a crowd favorite for her potential 1v5 pentakill power, and is now even drawing some bans in ranked ladder play.
  • Lux [Tier 1 Mid] - Ever since patch 6.18, Lux has quickly rose through the ranks and is now back on top for the most popular mid laner right under Ahri. Her strong poking ability coupled by her ability to 100 to 0 multiple enemies from long range makes her very popular among mid lane players.
  • Syndra [Tier 1 Mid] - Similar to Lux, Syndra's ability to nuke and outplay have made her a staple in every mid-laner's repitoire. Her Scatter the Weak presents extremely high potential for making game-changing plays via the AOE knockback, and adds a unique aspect to her kit.
  • Trundle [Tier 2 Top] - Players top lane are picking up mostly high damage melee now, which causes Trundle's tank shredding ultimate to lose a lot of its effect. He is currently shelved for now until the meta shifts back.
  • Yasuo [God Tier Mid/Top] - This patch, Yasuo is still dominating the fear factor, and is now even more banned than the traditionally most banned mid laner, Zed. His old playstyle of high damage, high mobility was already annoying enough. However, once you add in the unkillable factor curtesy of Frozen Mallet and Guardian Angel, you get one particularly annoying champion.
  • Yorick [God Tier Top] - As the latest champion to receive a massive overhaul, Yorick is getting largely positive reviews by players, who enjoy the new burst damage that his kit produces. As a result, he is getting banned an insane amount of the time as a tanky bruiser. His win rate is also slowly climbing up to respectable levels, which makes us think it might not all just be new champion complaints.
  • Zac [God Tier Jungle] - Although Zac's been at the top of the standard tier list for quite some time, I think this is the first time he made it to the top of the FOTM Tier List as a jungler. As I said quite a few times, Zac's gank potential and team fight changing ultimate is extremely good in a meta with mostly immobile marksman. Personally, I am surprised they have not nerfed him yet.
  • The purpose of this list is for discussion and to provide a starting point for hero selection.
