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

  • Caitlyn [God Tier Marksman] - Even after the nerfs, Caitlyn continues to be the second most banned marksman and the third highest played marksman in the game. Her laning phase is still incredibly oppressive in the right hands, and her trap zoning spells trouble against teams without good initiation abilities.
  • Cho'Gath [God Tier Jungle] - As a jungler, Cho'Gath gets far too much opportunity to stack his ultimate, and ends up with an insane amount of burst damage for securing objectives. His clear speed is also incredible with his newly reworked Vorpal Spikes [E], and his passive makes it nearly impossible to counter-jungle as he stays at full health during clears. 
  • Kayn [God Tier Jungle] - Kayn's buff this round took him up a notch, and he's now one of the more feared junglers on the rift. If he manages to snowball, his gank angles are extremely versatile and his sustained damage potential is exceedingly high.
  • Maokai [Tier 1 Jungle] - Maokai's packing almost everything you want in a utility jungler with his powerful early game crowd-control and near unkillable status. His newly buffed ultimate from last patch also allows him to engage or disengage at will from longer distances than ever, allowing for more multi-hits.
  • Orianna [God Tier Mid] - Ever since Apdo declared Orianna has no counters, she's firmly secured her spot as the most popular mid laner in the game. After all, if you can't trust the boosting king of the world, who can you trust? (Besides me of course)
  • Riven [God Tier Top] - Although she's the most picked top laner in the game, she's not necessarily the most feared...until she starts getting a few kills or pulls off a sick combo. After that, your team starts flaming and asking why nobody bothered banning Riven.
  • Urgot [Tier 1 Top] - The newly reworked Urgot feels extremely fun if you get going, and potentially becomes an unkillable juggernaut that deals way too much damage in return. His playstyle is very different from other champions though, so don't expect to just pick him up and dominate.
  • Zac [God Tier Jungle] - Even after his nerfs, Zac continues to be a feared jungler as a result of his powerful initiation abilities and crowd-control. Even with his reduced damage, he can still dish a decent amount with a good team to support him.
  • Zed [God Tier Mid] - Zed is still just as hard as ever, but ever since the lethality upgrades, his ability to pop tanks has dramatically increased. As a result, in the hands of a master his ability to snowball is very difficult to stop once he gets rolling. Getting a guardian angel on a marksman just means he'll one shot you twice.
  • The purpose of this list is for discussion and to provide a starting point for hero selection.
