Are you looking for a League of Legends solo queue tier list to win more ranked games and reach Gold, Diamond, or maybe even Challenger the FASTEST way possible?

Patch 9.5

Conqueror nerfs this patch have dropped a few champions down a peg, including Rek'Sai and Yorick. Meanwhile, Marksman Neeko is tearing up the Rift since her lastest buffs, and Jarvan's enjoying the marksman meta shift.

Lastly, the Morgana "rework" didn't change much about her besides a minor buff, but the Kayle rework is showing signs of struggle as she tries to find her place in the meta.

Check out the full list below!

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

  • Jarvan IV [God Tier Jungle] - Jarvan's been steadily climbing up the last few patches ever since the shift from mobile marksman back to hypercarry crit based marksmen. His ultimate allows him to pin down marksmen that rely on their movement speed to peel, especially Sivir and Jinx. Meanwhile, the buff back in Patch 9.2 to his movespeed allows him to boost auto-attacked based champions to new heights, which is especially valuable in a meta with champions like Jax highly selected in top lane.
  • Jarvan IV [Tier 2 Support] - As a support champion Jarvan hasn't seen much in the way of changes. However, players have fallen out of love with him as a result of his relatively low impact. He's still a very safe champion, but single-handedly carrying with him less likely than with someone like Thresh or Zyra.
  • Kayle [Tier 2 Top] - After the rework, Kayle's early game is now atrocious. She starts getting to be a hypercarry late game, but it doesn't make up for her weak early to mid. We may see a hotfix in the future, but as it stands she's not very good. Her top lane looks like it's panning out to be her best role, and as a jungler and mid lane she isn't fulfilling her role needs.
  • Malzahar [Tier 1 Mid] - Malzahar's dropping down to Tier 1 this patch mostly because so many poke champions are back on the rift. This makes it so that his passive spellshield is almost never up, reducing a good chunk of his strength.
  • Mordekaiser [Tier 2 Top] - Ever since the release of Spear of Shojin, Mordekaiser's been struggling top against early game bruisers that scale hard into late. He's still very much playable, but prone to abuse unless he's up against a tank.
  • Morgana [Tier 1 Support] - Morgana's rework largely remained the same other than a movespeed boost when she uses her ultimate. She's slightly stronger as a result, but nothing game-breaking.
  • Neeko [Tier 1 Marksman] - As a marksman, Neeko plays mostly like a Kai'Sa or Vayne with additional crowd control. I don't think she scales quite as hard as Vayne, but she's certainly very strong and packs a ton of crowd-control. We'll see how things work out this patch, but she may very well move up even further. See this article for more details on what makes her so strong!
  • Sylas [Tier 1 Top] - After the "tweaks" to Sylas, players are switching off from his tank build to take full advantage of his AP scaling build...which is incredibly strong. Few can trade evenly with him early to late as a result of the number of spells at his disposal and his extra damage from his passive. This allows him to gain lane priority to level six and abuse enemy laners with their own ultimates. He does struggle somewhat from getting camped, but otherwise has few weakenesses in his current form.
  • Yorick [God Tier Top] - The double conqueror plus direct nerfs to Yorick definitely took him down a peg. He's not nearly as unstoppable as he was last patch, but he's still a force to be reckoned with. Despite the damage reduction on his ultimate, he's still a lane bully with incredible split-pushing power.
