FOTM Ranked Solo Queue Tier List (High Elo) ~ Patch 9.11 - June

Leave a Comment
League of Legends Tier Lists generally show what you should be playing, but don't necessarily show what you'll be up against. Looking for a LoL tier list shows which champions other players are playing in the current meta? This League tier list takes out the unorthodox selections from the standard tier list and uses a data-driven approach to pick out what players are most afraid of and think are strongest.

SEASON 9 - June - PATCH 9.11

Which League Champions Are Most Popular?

The standard tier list is a bit late this rotation, but to satiate your appetite in the meantime, check out the FOTM Tier List below! Poke champions are rising to the top this patch coupled with the same power pick jungle champions we've come to expect. Meanwhile, Yuumi is really coming into her own this patch and players are starting to understand and appreciate the amount of utility that her kit provides teams that know how to use it.

Check out the full tier list below!

The purpose of the "Flavor of the Month" ("FOTM") list is to show which champions are popular in today's metagame in terms of pro picks and high Elo choices.

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 Tier List Explanations

God Tier: These champions are common bans and are likely perceived as being "overall extremely strong/broken". They have very obvious and/or flashy skills that make them appear stronger than other champions. You'll likely see these champions picked early on if they're not banned.

Tier 1: These champions are the ones you'll see in the majority of your games and are good to familiarize yourself with as you'l be battling against them a lot.

Tier 2: These champions are relatively strong and have historically been picked more often than other champions. They may have been nerfed at one point at another, but are still perceived as strong in their current states.

Tier 3: These champions aren't quite as popular as the rest of the champions in the first 3 tiers, but picking them one at a time isn't going to cause much of a concern on your team. However, if you have a team of 5 of them your teammates are likely to feel a bit uneasy about your chances of winning in solo queue.

Tier 4: Selecting these champions will likely cause a rift between you and your teammates, who will proceed to flame you if you fail your lane. Exercise caution when selecting these champions, as team morale often plays a big part in victory or defeat.

Champion Explanations

  • Aatrox [God Tier Top] - Aatrox is one of those champions that is always at the top of everyone's ban list but there are just as many bad Aatrox players as good ones, resulting in a relatively stable champion that doesn't solo influence the outcome of games. He stomps games that he's winning, but is also almost useless in games that he's losing as a result of the mechanics behind his ultimate. Without the revival mechanic behind his World Ender [R], he's significantly less terrifying.
  • Ezreal [God Tier Bot Carry] - In the current meta that emphasizes powerful jungle ganks and otherwise passive farming, Ezreal fits in nicely with everyone's thoughts on how marksmen should be played. His all-in burst is powerful and his laning phase can be played very conservatively. He doesn't snowball as hard as some other marksmen, but at 15 minutes can be terrifying on his own.
  • Lux [God Tier Mid] - Lux has somehow risen to the top tiers alongside Ezreal. The two of them combined result in an absolutely obnoxious kiting comp on their own. Meanwhile, support Lux is also doing awesome using the aftershock rune.
  • Nautilus [God Tier Support] - In his current form Nautilus is terribly squishy if he doesn't hit his hook. However, when he does hit it, aftershock keeps him tanky enough that he takes nearly zero damage when he stacks it with bone plating and his W shield. This has made him one of the best all-in supports in the game, even at early levels.
  • Rammus [Tier 1 Jungle] - In this gank heavy meta Rammus has found a place with junglers around the world. Traditionally seen as a slow jungler that gets counter-jungled early too hard, he's performing well in the current meta and by continuously taking golems and raptors can stay ahead of enemy junglers with ease. When you combine this with his powerful ganks it's no wonder he's a fan favorite.
  • Sejuani [Tier 1 Jungle] - Some players may wonder why Sejuani is getting more love than Amumu, and that's simply because she has more options when it comes to going over ledges compared to Amumu who has range but less options. She's also got her knock-back, which is always helpful at high levels to block spells like Lee Sin's Q.
  • Tahm Kench [Tier 1 Top] - As a top laner Tahm Kench is doing surprisingly well after his tweaks from a few patches ago. He's very difficult to lane against as a melee champion and his cooldowns are surprisingly low for how much effect they have. He can effectively permaslow enemy champions with just a few points in his Tongue Lash [Q].
  • Yuumi [God Tier Support] - Yuumi's hotfix on introduction has slowly brought her from being completely useless in lane to a champion that's actually impressively annoying to lane against. Her poke is nearly impossible to dodge even if you hide behind minions as a result of its fast projectile speed and her sustain is incredibly good as well. She definitely needs a marksman that understands her to use her to the fullest, but otherwise she's turning out to be a solid champion all around.
  • The purpose of this list is for discussion and to provide a starting point for champion selection.
