Leave a Comment
Hey folks, check out the latest updates on the ban list! I noticed that it's been a while since I last updated this, which is a bit sad considering how fast it is to update and how helpful many of you find it.

With that being said, I'm removing the explanation seciton on the bottom, as it's probably easier just to comment and we can discuss :)

SEASON 7
PATCH 7.8 BAN LIST
"Problems"

Preface Chatter

Hey folks, check out the latest updates on the ban list! I noticed that it's been a while since I last updated this, which is a bit sad considering how fast it is to update and how helpful many of you find it.

With that being said, I'm removing the explanation seciton on the bottom, as it's probably easier just to comment and we can discuss :)

Anyway, 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.
