Patch 10.6 Tier List Update Summary

This patch's main feature is the new Wukong rework, which is absolutely taking over the Rift. Despite the hotfix, he remains an extremely powerful champion and his new kit has a ton of utility that won't be suppressed by just a few numbers nerfs. With the amount of added mobility and crowd-control Wukong sports, don't be surprised if he becomes a staple in every top laner's repertoire going forward.

    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 the 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.


    League of Legends Tier List Descriptions

    God Tier: These champions are almost impossible to keep down. If your team doesn't make it a priority to shut down these champions and shut them down hard, even if they lose their lane, lose in CS, and it's their first time playing the champion, they can be a massive nuisance for your team. On the other hand, if they're actually good at the champion...that's when it's time to throw in the towel.

    Tier 1: These champions generally do very well regardless, and have some sort of advantage over most other champions. When they do well, their team does well. Even when they don't do well, their team still has a good chance of a comeback victory by utilizing one or more aspects of their late-game utility.

    Tier 2: This is the Tier of balanced champions where Riot shoots to place their designs. These champions generally do well in their own right and are very strong picks with a good chance of winning. However, they're not overpowered by any means and do have their weaknesses.

    Tier 3: These champions can still do very well, but tend to need a little more snowballing to get rolling. Even if they get an early lead, it's still very possible to turn the tides on them with just a mistake or two. They may also have some weaknesses that can be capitalized on.

    Tier 4: These champions are either underpowered or offer less reward than other champions for the same amount of effort. These champions basically start winning from the get-go or get made fun of for the rest of the game. They need gold to do their job correctly, and if they don't get enough of it, they become sandbags for the enemy team to punch. Chances of a comeback with one of these champions feeding on your team is almost none.

    Thoughts on Win Rates

    With enough playtime, a high win rate on a champion indicates *something* generally goes right, and a low win rate indicates that whatever is happening in games with this champion isn't in their favor.

    A low win rate may mean a champion is being played incorrectly and is stronger than his win rate indicates, but a top 25 win rate (with 120 champions) almost always indicates that a champion is at least a good candidate for Tier 1 or high Tier 2 if the sample size is large enough.

    This means that champions with high win rates do not mean that they're necessarily GOOD right now, especially if they have a low play rate or tend to get into favorable match-ups. If we feel this is the case, these champions will place differently on this tier list than you'd think.

    Similarly, champions with low win rates that are still within the acceptable deviations may end up slightly higher than you'd expect from a champion with mediocre win rates.

    If there are champions on this tier list with low overall play rates but good win rates after relatively few games of practice, it may mean that players that pick those champions up just to try them are bringing down the average. If this is the case, we will place them higher on the list.

    More thoughts on win rates here.

    Counter Picking Champions

    In Tier 3 of this tier list, we've placed certain champions that are good as a second pick, but can get spanked hard if they end up first picking by a variety of meta champions. If you're good at a large variety of champions, picking a champion that counters your lane is a good place to start. If you can get a slight advantage and don't have a clear experience advantage, picking a champion that both places high on this tier list and also counters your enemy lane may give you enough to win a game.

    LoL Tier List Champion Explanations

    Aphelios [Tier 2 Marksman]

    Massive nerfs on Aphelios' overall damage have greatly reduced his trade options. Overall, he needs to farm longer and isn't able to beat other marksmen single-handedly with weaker items. At the end of the day he can still perform once he farms up, but I'd say he's in a fairly balanced state right now. 

    Kalista [Tier 2 Top]

    Honestly, bets were on Kalista top being a mere fad that would fade out relatively quickly. She's definitely losing some steam, but players are still enjoying her as a top lane and dropping similar champions like Vayne and Quinn in favor of Kalista as a top lane marksman bully. However, as more high damage bruisers pop into top lane expect her to struggle as she remains squishy and will have difficulty surviving if she's initiated on.

    Senna [Tier 1 Support]

    Although her damage was reduced, Senna continues to perform quite well just from a pure utility perspective. She still performs incredibly well with Glacial Augment and allows early game marksmen to easily take over laning phase with little trouble. Late game, her low cooldown CC fishing is also very valuable as a long-range engagement tool. She does lack in hard CC but is able to make up for it by giving her marksman an excellent start to the game.

    Talon [God Tier Mid]

    Talon's rise this patch is solely a result of the new Death's Dance change. By giving the item both armor and magic resist without changing the price, the post-mitigation damage over time means that Talon is instantly much tankier than ever. As a champion that rarely built any sort of defensive items, Death's Dance effectively makes Talon into a bruiser assassin rather than a true assassin only champion. Meanwhile, his damage is still more than enough to delete champions despite the minor AD nerf.

    Wukong [God Tier Top]

    The new Wukong is extremely difficult to trade with early on in the game as a result of his newly reworked passive. This same passive also transitions very well into the late game and allows him to be an excellent frontline bruiser. Meanwhile, by giving him two dashes and double AOE knock-ups, his engagement power is extremely valuable. Overall I would say he's insanely powerful in his current state, outtrades, and outscales.

    Wukong [Tier 1 Jungle]

    As a jungler Wukong is also very powerful. His double gap closer gives him tons of gank potential, but without hard-CC his early game ganks aren't as effective as more valuable picks. He's great at dueling but there are better picks for other valuable assets that other jungle champions bring to a well-balanced team.

    Zac [God Tier Jungle]

    Zac in his current state is quite good. He's always been an excellent ganker, but ever since the changes to the Bami's Cinder line in Patch 10.4 his damage has risen and he's starting to perform much better during the mid to late game as a source of damage. Overall, the shift away from peel supports like Janna also greatly enhanced his viability when coupled with all-in engage supports instead.
