Tier 1 - These champions are at the top of this list for a lot of reasons. The biggest reason being you can actually carry a team with them. In League of Legends its very hard to be a “true” carry as this game if very team oriented. If you’ve ever played a 4v5 you’ll know what I am talking about as it’s literally impossible to win. So I find these champions in Tier 1 lane VERY well in terms of being able to kill creeps well, harassing the enemy champion, and survivability. For the junglers in tier 1 it’s because they control the jungle well, and do it safely. Also gank well and if get fed can actually carry games themselves. All these champions have great early games for the most part and just continuously get stronger as the game goes on. These are the pub stomp kings of the game in my eyes currently.

Tier 2 - These champions like tier 1 champions are great laners, and are great to have on your team in Solo Queue. They just don’t carry as hard as other champions in tier 1 I find. Their early game laning power can be almost equal to the strength of tier 1 champions but I find the tier 2 champions to be slightly weaker than these tier 1 champions in terms of how hard you can carry a solo queue game with them. They are still the creme of the crop in Solo Queue and shouldn’t be underestimated.

Tier 3 - These champions I find to be great 3rd, 4th, or 5th picks on a team. They are 100% viable but these champions generally aren’t as strong in lane as tier 1 and tier 2 champions and often take the Duo lane as they aren’t as strong as solo’s. A few of them in this tier can stand toe to toe to a lot of tier 1 and 2 champions in a Solo lane but I find they just aren’t sought after as “great” Solo Queue solo laners. These champs are all 100% viable in solo queue. I just find them to be slightly weaker than tier 2 champions in Solo Queue.

Tier 4 - Now tier 4 is a tricky tier I find. These champs are all 100% viable for Solo Queue. If someone says they play a great X champion in tier 4 than you can let them solo or play that champion. These champions are simply tier 4 because they require a lot more farm I find than other champions to reach that “carry status” in Solo Queue. These champions are usually played by people who love these champions for their design and play style so usually people who play these champions I find aren’t bad players at all so letting them play these champions sometime is a good choice. These champions problem isn’t poor laning or really anything other than they require a lot more effort to be good at and a lot more skill to do well on is all. They’re all fun champions and I suggest you give them a whirl and try them out!

Any video?

on the very bottom you say you placed xerath tier 1, but hes not actually listed in the tier 1 list.


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 10:33am

any written comments?

isnt it a sign, that the game gets more balanced when more champs land in the first two tiers?

God damn it Elementz, now I'm gonna have to carry all of those Tele/Revive Karthuses.


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 10:37am

Xerath not in the list btw


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 10:44am

Yo Elementz pls put more time in your tier lists.. I used to watch RoG every day for new updates, but in the past I felt like there was nothing to get from this page and barely watched it.


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 11:01am

Why no video or list with explanation? List without them is... errr... meaningless a little. I rly wanna know why Wukong is Tier 2 out of blue:/


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 11:01am

yea i know its just your opinion, but yorick is a freakin beast soloq


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 11:37am

Interesting. This also reflects closely what people are playing heavily at the moment. It's been awesome to see Shaco players dominating games.

Ya, I was surprised by Yorick's position as well, but there are so many champions to try and balance, especially with five tiers.

Wow, look at Wukong. People do underestimate him fairly hard, myself included.

I had a feeling Graves was top tier. Also, Karthus going to get nerfed again ._. FML The one time I went revive/tele as opposed to flash/tele karthus, I went 11/1 and was like, wutdo? revive so useless.


Tuesday, October 25th 2011, 12:24pm

My favorite part of this was the addition of tier 5.
