Instructions and Caveats:

  • Champions in BOLD I will talk about shortly
  • Champions UNDERLINED may be over/undervalued, but aren't/haven't played enough for me to make a better judgment.
  • Within each tier, the champions are strongest from left to right, but within a tier each champion's strength is relatively close. This is especially true for Tiers 2 and 3 where these champions are ALL highly playable and player dependent on how strong they are in-game.
  • Win Rates are important in analyzing each champion's strength but are not the end-all criteria for any champion's position.
  • Professional Picks may not necessarily translate into good picks for solo queue ladder, the two have slightly different meta-games and skill levels.
  • The creator of this list is diamond so there may be some personal bias towards higher tier play on certain champions.

Champion Explanations

  • Graves [God Tier Jungle] - The new jungle changes make Graves incredibly strong (again). The reduced gold favors junglers with healthy clears, and few can take out the jungle as fast or as healthily as Graves. Meanwhile, his damage is still incredibly potent and his Smokescreen (W) remains one of the most obnoxious spells in the game.
  • Karthus [God Tier Mid] - Karthus in his current state is incredibly annoying. While he could potentially be camped early as a result of his low mobility, he can simply play safe and farms with his long-range Lay Waste [Q]. With the Presence of Mind rune, he's a constant presence post-6 that can use his ult at will to begin or end team fights.
  • Lucian [God Tier Marksman] - Despite dominating the Rift for multiple patches now, Lucian remains the top tier marksman for slaughtering squishies and tanks alike. 
  • Pantheon [God Tier Top] - Some players say Pantheon falls off too hard to be a God Tier top laner, but the fact of the matter is that games are ending faster and faster. He has almost no bad match-ups, and has a point and click stun for a nearly guaranteed kill during jungle ganks. His passive also makes him one of the few champions that can consistently dive turrets for kills, making him incredibly good at snowballing.
  • Sylas [Tier 3 Jungle] - Sylas in his current state seems like he either needs a few buffs or simply a lot more practice. If he can close the gap and hit all his skillshots he can dish out a surprisingly amount of damage. However, if he does get fed a late-game flash or two renders him nearly useless. His ultimate stealing abilities are certainly an interesting mechanic, but needs a high amount of analyzing and quick thinking to use effectively.
  • Thresh [God Tier Support] - When it comes to being an all-around good pick, Thresh does it all. He's got peel, engage, and multiple forms of crowd-control. Ever since players started using Nomad's Medallion instead of the Relic Shield line and Riot gave him back scaling magic resist, Thresh has performed better and better in solo queue. He also synergizes well with Lucian for powerful level two all-ins.
  • Volibear [Tier 1 Top] - The new buffs to Volibear allow him to be quite an effective top laner. If players choose to go teleport over ignite for the team aspect, it's almost impossible to kill Volibear with his passive up. Meanwhile, the new scaling damage on his kit gives him the ability to trade with tanks. 
  • Xin Zhao [God Tier Jungle] - Similar to Graves, the jungle changes made an already overpowered jungler even stronger in comparison. His ganks are highly effective, and the variations on his jungle patch make is very hard to predict where he's going to gank next.
  • Yorick [God Tier Top] - The changes on Yorick's kit and reduction in the amount of gold his ghouls provide make him much better in lane. He's also rarely played at the time of this writing, and can thus catch enemies off-guard with the absurd amount of damage he dishes using his Q empowered auto-attack.
