    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

    Caitlyn [God Tier Marksman]

    I had a bit of trouble here picking out a third God Tier marksman. Draven was close to making it, but ultimately because of the skill floor required to play him, I left him at the top end of Tier 1 instead. Meanwhile, Caitlyn is still one of the most consistent marksmen (women) in the game, and her amazing early game allows you to pick her without worrying that you'll get absolutely destroyed in pick phase alone.

    Draven [Tier 1 Marksman]

    Draven in a nutshell, is a feast or famine type of marksman, but even during famine he can start feasting at any time as long as he hasn't died too much. In the hands of a good player, Draven just needs a single moment where the enemy has a lull in defenses to completely run over the game. However, this much potential is gated by his high skill floor, and existing marksmen skills don't necessarily translate into being a good Draven player.

    Ezreal [God Tier Marksman]

    Ezreal in his current form is similar to Caitlyn, but with a weaker early game and a stronger late game. He continues to be excellent as a poke champion, and the latest trend of building Iceborn Gauntlet and Death's Dance allows him to become a nearly unstoppable killing machine. He plays a unique role when it comes to marksmen, and is almost always the core of a team's strategy. Late game, a single Q can chunk a third of an enemy's health which is absurd considering how low the cooldown is.

    Trundle [Tier 1 Jungle]

    Trundle has never been an exciting champion per say, and he certainly lacks utility when it comes to team fights. In his current state however, he's got just enough damage and movement speed to be viable. As the solo queue jungle meta shifts towards early skirmishes and snowballing, Trundle excels in 1v1s against melee champions.

    Udyr [Tier 1 Jungle]

    Many players are sleeping on Udyr, largely because of his utter lack of team utility and one-dimensional gameplay. However, if you play to his core strengths of split-pushing, Udyr is extremely consistent right now and capable of solo carrying games. That being said, he's still somewhat of a specialty pick so his win rates may be inflated. Nevertheless, he's performing quite well across all divisions.

    Volibear [Tier 2 Top]

    On release of the new Volibear, he struggled in his new form. However, after some rapid hotfixes, Volibear seems to be in a decent, although still struggling state. His kit is definitely more interesting now than before, but still somewhat basic and lacking in true utility. This means that for Volibear to succeed, it's simply going to be a question of numbers and once Riot gives him just a little more tweak I'm sure he'll be quite good.

    Wukong [Tier 1 Jungle]

    Everyone plays Wukong top, but his jungle presence is still very strong. If your top laner isn't picking Wukong and he's open, grabbing him for jungle is still a great selection. The main complaint that most people have with Wukong jungle is that his clear speed and health pool is a bit lackluster. However, he more than makes up for that with his mid to late-game power spikes. He can also hold his own early game against other jungle champs, but does lack the ability to CC scuttle crab and remove the armor buff.

    Yuumi [God Tier Support]

    Yuumi in God Tier for some people is an obvious pick and for others will come as a bit of a surprise. It's true that her early game isn't great, but her mid to late game push many bruisers and certain marksmen (i.e. Draven) to new heights. Now that players actually understand how she works and can consistently help her navigate her Q and R, she doesn't require a genius marksman to figure out how to use her effectively.
