PATCH 6.23 BAN LIST

Hey everyone and welcome to the latest ban list! This time around a lot of the assassins are still getting a ton of bans lobbed their way, but most of them aren't performing too hot despite how much fear they're generating. Check out the full list below!

Be sure to check out the regular ranked queue list, and the FOTM tier list as well!

The purpose of this list is to discover optimal bans, with the knowledge that enemy teams will likely ban the ones at the top of the list.

Banning Thought Process

  1. Which champions could the enemy team pick that would really screw my team over?
  2. Which champions could the enemy team pick that would really screw ME over?
  3. Which of the champions above is the enemy team likely going to pick if it's not banned?
  4. Which of the champions above is the enemy team probably going to ban?
After considering these items, it's time to hit the ban phase.

Method

To do this list, I first start with whichever statistical compilation site I have available (my personal preference is leagueofgraphs.com). Afterwards, I check the most banned champions and separate them into either "God Tier" or "Meh Bans" based on win rate and popularity, sometimes subjective reasoning (in which case I'd do a write up).

Last I do an analysis of both the win rate and the popularity by division and add in good bans for that division based on such.

Some people may note that most sites don't distinguish between "Platinum Only" and "Platinum and Higher". However, this generally doesn't make much of a difference as a result of the way the overall player distribution is between the ranks. Bronze and Silver make up the highest percentage of error, but generally run similar to each other.

Explanations

  • Blitzcrank [Good Ban Silver] - Blitzcrank is one of those champions that does extremely well when enemy supports do not punish him when he misses hook. As a result, he performs extremely well at lower divisions as a primary playmaker.
  • Caitlyn [Good Ban Silver] - Caitlyn's traps make it very difficult for enemy teams to siege. In divisions where team map rotations are not good enough, Caitlyn can easily zone off enemy teams and force bad dives.
  • Hecarim [Good Ban Silver] - Hecarim rarely gets banned at Silver and below, but is still extremely potent and played a decent amount as well. I think he still warrents a ban if you're not using him for some free LP.
  • Lee Sin [Good Ban Diamond] - In his current state, Lee Sin is actually quite strong in the jungle. He is also the most played jungle at every division. As a result, it is probably a good idea to ban him simply for the champion diversity and possibility of throwing someone off their main.
  • Rengar [Meh Ban Diamond] - Players still shiver from nightmares after getting one-shot by a fed Rengar over and over. However, in most games he does not perform that well. Although he is annoying to play against, he tends to get a lot of solo kills, resulting in low gold shared on his team. This means that once you lock him down, the rest of his team tends to be a bit farther behind.
  • Talon [Meh Ban Diamond] - Talon's mobility and potential for massive damage makes him a top ban in every division. Nevertheless, most people simply are not good enough at him to fully utilize his skills yet. I don't think he's worth justifying a ban since there are still plenty of bad Talon players that pick him just for fun.
  • Twitch [Good Ban Diamond] - Twitch is absolutely broken right now and can essentially become a ranged AOE Rengar. If you have a feeling someone on the enemy team might be thinking about picking him, just ban him out.
  • Vayne [God Tier Diamond] - It's probably no surprise that Vayne is a God Tier ban at every division. Her damage is through the roof, and in a meta full of tanks, she fits right in as the perfect counter.
