 With the release of the assassin Pyke and a slew of marksman changes, players are quickly seeing rapid changes in the metagame. Lucian is back to relevance for the first time in a long time, and he's packing one of the old overpowered builds that allow him to simultaneously dish tons of damage and be nearly invulnerable at the same time.

Does this sound like fun? Sure sounds like it to me!

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

  • Graves [God Tier Jungle] - Despite the nerf to Graves on his cooldown and base damage, he continues to dominate the new rift scuttle meta-game. Although he's not quite the faceroll champion he was in the last few patches, he's pretty much the same old lovable unkillable one-man army.
  • Irelia [Tier 1 Mid] - Irelia in her current form is actually quite decent as mid-laner as well, and she plays much like you would expect other melee assassins to play. While she's still played significantly more top lane, mid-lane gives her more roam potential.
  • Kai'Sa [God Tier Marksman] - While the marksmen changes in this patch shifted most of the other ones around a bit, Kai'Sa remains largely untouched since her item build is completely different from those of other marksmen. As a result, she can still dominate with the same builds as last patch.
  • Lucian [God Tier Marksman] - The Blade of the Ruined King cost reduction combined with the new features on Essence Reaver brought back the old tank Lucian build with Black Cleaver, something we haven't seen in a long time but is super obnoxious when it comes to dual roles. He's essentially Graves in lane, unkillable, always high pressure, and absurdly strong in the mid-game.
  • Master Yi [God Tier Jungle] - Master Yi is annoying enough by himself. However, players are pushing him to new heights with popular boosting strategies borrowed from Twisted Treeline including playing Taric in a solo lane and funneling gold all into this unstoppable hypercarry.  
  • Pyke [God Tier Support] - Despite a lot of early difficulty with Pyke's kit, after the hotfix players are quickly learning to love this Duskblade packing support. He's basically the assassin every support dreamed of playing without the rage from your marksman for taking the kill.
  • Pyke [Tier 1 Jungle] - As a jungler Pyke does okay. His ganks aren't amazing since they do take some time to setup properly, and enemies can tell when he's near. That being said, it's not like he's a bad jungler, and while taxing minions still doesn't give your fellow teammates gold, at least he spreads the wealth once he gets his ultimate.
  • Xin Zhao [God Tier Jungle] - Again, similar to Graves Xin Zhao is still annihilating enemy junglers with ease. Although he's clearly not as strong as he was last patch, he's still perfectly playable.
  • Yasuo [God Tier Mid] - The changes on critical strike items basically gutted Yasuo for a short period of time. However, after the hotfix changes he's back on track for most players. People who didn't play him between the patch and the hotfix likely won't even notice much of a change in his playstyle.
