Patch 11.23 Tier List Update Summary

The preseason patch is well underway and while everyone’s running around that smog-filled jungle and hexgates galore, marksmen are thoroughly enjoying the new Lethal Tempo and new Axiom Arc builds are slowly popping up. The latter still seems to be more of a gimmick, but I’m sure we can make it work!

Check out the full tier list below!

LoL Tier List For Solo Queue

The tier lists below start at the strongest champions on the tier list and is ordered from left to right in power level. The tier lists are also separated into multiple segments for ease of understanding, but champions from a higher segment of the tier list may still lose to a counter pick from a lower-tier segment of the tier list.


Full LoL Tier List For Solo Queue

The tier list below lists every viable champion in the game along with a few unorthodox picks that can still perform fairly well. This tier list is meant to organize every viable champion in the game into an order with the average experienced player in mind. Generally speaking, this is somewhere between silver and platinum. This tier list can also be used for higher divisions, but the higher you go, the more specialized at specific champions you become.

Jungle Tier List

  • 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.

When making this tier list we initially considered using tier list descriptions similar to others with S-tier, A-tier etc. However, In the initial build of the tier list way back when we started, it was more popular to use a God Tier designation and then go down from there on the tier list. As a result, we’ve stuck by this concept through the years. However, since God Tier is supposed to be relatively exclusive on this tier list, we try and limit it to only three or four picks at most. This means that there may be champions that are close to God tier on this tier list, but don’t quite make it and are instead at the top of Tier 1.

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.
In the past, some people complained that this tier list focused too much on win rates and not enough on play rates. However, this tier list takes into account both win rates and play rates before performing analysis on the champion. Just because there’s a high correlation on win rates and position on the tier list doesn’t indicate that this tier list is solely based on win rates, if anything the champion power level drives the win rates and supports the claim to validity.

League of Legends is an extremely intricate game and this tier list strives to be as accurate as possible to give you the strongest champion picks. We ordered them on the tier list based on what is most likely to give you the highest chance of winning the game. However, the tier list will over time, have a bias towards win rates since this does indicate that the ordering is accurate and not prone to fluctuations in play rate.

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.

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.

Check out a few of our more popular champion counter guides:

  1. Yasuo Counters
  2. Darius Counters
  3. Vayne Counters
  4. Leblanc Counters
  5. More available here

Lux [Tier 1 Support]

The current version of Lux support in the meta is Lux at her finest, max E, max Q, none of that max shield nonsense. While she’s not as popular as she was last month, she still packs a punch and her low cooldowns give her an excellent margin for error. At lower divisions where they don’t punish her cooldown windows as hard, she can be a very free lane.

Poppy [God Tier Top]

Poppy in her current state is an undervalued pick that performs extremely well against the majority of meta champions. Her damage and utility is also comparable to top tier champions and she can easily hold her own while simultaneously being underestimated and underplayed. If you’re looking for a stable top lane champion she’s a consistently strong pickup.

Tryndamere [Tier 1 Top]

Ever since the change to Lethal Tempo this patch, Tryndamere has become an absolute beast. The massive attack speed boost gives him more power than ever before, and when combined with the increased attack range bonus allows him to feel very smooth when mauling enemy champions.

Vayne [God Tier Bot/Tier 1 Top]

Vayne was already strong before this patch, but the new Lethal Tempo changes also greatly enhanced her strength. As a champion that lives off of initiative but has relatively low range compared to other marksmen, Lethal Tempo is the one thing she needed to put her way over the top.

Viktor [God Tier Mid]

Is it an RPG Arcane boost? No, it’s actually perfect synergy with the new items, in particular Cosmic Drive, which gives him insane sticking power. When you combine this with the new First Strike Rune, Viktor snowballs very quickly and ends up dealing absurd amounts of damage. In his current state I’d say he’s likely overtuned and due for a nerf.

Xerath [Tier 1 Support]

Xerath support has always been a viable pick, but not terribly good against all-in supports. With Jhin back in the meta however, he’s very good as a long-range cannon that enhances Jhin’s abilities greatly. That being said, he’s still not quite as good as a traditional support simply because of the low peel potential in team fights.

Ziggs [Tier 1 Bot]

Ziggs continues to be a viable pick this patch despite the massive boost to Lethal Tempo for the regular marksmen. He still plays more as a shredder with Liandry and Demonic Embrace than a traditional burst marksman, which allows him to fulfill the bot lane role. That being said, make sure you don’t discount his burst damage which can easily 100 to 0 his fellow bot lane friends.
