Figuring out what role to play in League is always diffiicult when we're all Challenjours and amazing at every position. Meanwhile, if you're a one-trick pony in a specific role, it's also nice to know if your complaints about marksmen being overpowered is valid. Check out our data-driven conclusions to the game below that help give an objective overview of role power levels in Patch 8.6!

Introduction

Figuring out what role to play in League is always diffiicult when we're all Challenjours and amazing at every position. Meanwhile, if you're a one-trick pony in a specific role, it's also nice to know if your complaints about marksmen being overpowered is valid.

Check out our data-driven conclusions to the game below that help give an objective overview of role power levels in Patch 8.6!

Current State of the Game

  • Top Lane - 50.947%
  • Mid Lane - 51.223%
  • Support - 51.417%
  • Marksman - 51.078%
  • Jungle - 51.900%

Observations

In the current patch, Junglers seem to be especially strong as a result of direct buffs on abilities such as Shaco's Deceive [Q] and the advent of the Conquerer rune for Jax.

Meanwhile, Warwick continues to run amuck on the Rift, rampaging across everything in his path.

As initial observations, it's not surprising that supports have more control over the game than marksmen do (sorry fellas, it's statistically proven), but it IS surprising that they're doing better than mid-laners as a whole.

Lastly, there could be something to Hashinshin's rants about top lane, which is doing the worst of the bunch (though not by far).

Method

This is a statistical brute force method that relies heavily on win rate and play rate. As a result, it reflects a snapshot of the game through generalizations.

In this method, we first take the data from somewhere (usually champion.gg), then sort it by >50% win rates. Next, we sort that from highest to lowest play rate, and then grab what makes up the top 7 champions by play percentage.

Lastly, we take a weighted average win rate from this pool and assign that to the role.
