Patch 10.10 Tier List Update Summary

Hope everyone's keeping sane in these trying times...I know I haven't been posting much but trying to catch my second wind and of course, I'll keep at least the tier list going regardless! That being said, a lot of the usual suspects from last patch continue to dominate. The last set of changes hit some of the more lane dominant champions, leaving quite a bit of room for changes to the meta.

    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

    Annie [God Tier Mid]

    Annie's latest changes were aimed primarily at her defensive capabilities. When she has the chance to dish her damage, she does incredibly well and is obviously capable of nearly one-shotting enemy squishies in an AOE. Meanwhile, she's always had some trouble getting initiated on as she has low mobility without flash and limited escape options. The tweak to her molten shield has helped her much more than it appears at a 30% boost to her previous damage reduction. When you combine this with an unneeded, but obviously very welcome increase to her Tibbers damage, she executes her playstyle very effectively.

    Bard [God Tier Support]

    Seeing Bard up so high is somewhat nostalgic. We always knew that his kit had a lot of potential on release, but never thought he'd be consistent enough to make it up to God Tier some day. However, with the skill floor that players exhibit in the current day and age, Bard is in fact, extremely powerful and capable of great things on a consistent basis. Man I feel old.

    Kled [Tier 1 Top]

    Kled had a short reign and never really exhibited his full popularity in solo queue. Nevertheless, he's been nerfed while being a semi-sleeper pick and is now relatively weaker in his laning phase. This gives him a much smaller margin for error and lowers the bar for his trading potential.

    Miss Fortune [Tier 1 Marksman]

    Miss Fortune's damage wasn't affected, so seeing the effects of the nerf is somewhat indirect. While you won't feel different while dueling her, it's each moment where she's capable of running you down or getting away that you'll really feel that 10 movement speed difference. This change also makes it more difficult for her to auto-space into multiple auto-attack harass hits, which does make a significant, if less noticeable difference.

    Trundle [Tier 1 Jungle]

    Trundle's rise to power comes in an era where Maokai rules the meta. Meanwhile, with the latest nerfs to Maokai we could be seeing a shift from tanky top lanes as well. With that being said, I'm tentatively moving Trundle to Tier 1 simply because the meta doesn't seem to be shifting fast enough based on the nerfs and honestly he's still very strong against beefy champions.

    Twitch [God Tier Marksman]

    The ultimate sleeper pick, nearly nobody plays Twitch right now, which is definitely a mistake. Nerfs to multiple marksmen have brought their power levels down significantly, while Twitch continues to stealthily grow indirectly in power. He's a solo queue god, and there's a reason why boosters enjoy playing him. His ability to solo enemy teams is immense, and he's capable of exploiting mispositioning at will.

    Udyr [Tier 1 Jungle]

    Another sleeper pick this patch, it's difficult to say if Udyr will really ever gain popularity as a result of his low utility kit. He now does what he does a little better, and people who are used to his playstyle will do significantly better with just a little more at their disposal. If you're planning to pick up Udyr for the first time you'll likely be disappointed, but he's honestly pretty good right now if you cater to his strengths.

    Wukong [God Tier Top]

    Somehow Wukong remained untouched this patch, likely because Riot wanted to give him a break after slamming him over and over since release. That being said, nerfs to other top lane champions this patch really just cemented this monkey's place as the strongest top lane champion in the game...until the next round of nerfs.
