Best Champions Ban Tier List For Bronze | Silver | Gold | Platinum | Diamond - Patch 9.4 February

Leave a Comment
Ever since the Karthus nerfs and Zed buffs of Patch 9.4, we're seeing a strong shift in mid-lane dominance. Coupled with nerfs on Yasuo, Zed's main mid-lane "counter", he's running amok on the Rift. Ban him out if you don't want to deal with it. Meanwhile, as the premiere 1v2 marksman, banning Draven's an excellent idea that everyone's caught on to.

SEASON 9
PATCH 9.4 BAN TIER LIST

Prioritize Zed Over Karthus

Ever since the Karthus nerfs and Zed buffs of Patch 9.4, we're seeing a strong shift in mid-lane dominance. Coupled with nerfs on Yasuo, Zed's main mid-lane "counter", he's running amok on the Rift. Ban him out if you don't want to deal with it. Meanwhile, as the premiere 1v2 marksman, banning Draven's an excellent idea that everyone's caught on to.

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.
