    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 judgement.
    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.
    This tier list takes data from ALL players; however, since the majority of players fall in the first three tiers, the majority of data points will come from there.
    Win Rates are important in analyzing each champion’s strength, but are not the end-all criteria for any champion’s position.
    The creator of this list is diamond, so there may be some personal bias towards higher tier play on certain champions.

    Champion Explanations
    Ashe [Tier 1 ADC] – Ashe is still my favorite AD carry for anybody who isn’t quite sure what they’re supposed to be doing as an AD carry. She has all the tools necessary to succeed, along with the second highest range in the game and unparallelled utility. That being said, she does lack a bit in the late game snowballing damage strength, which works to diminish her strength somewhat as she’s easily dispatched 1v1 in solo queue if her arrow misses or gets dodged.
    Blitzcrank [God Tier Support] – Blitzcrank has a ton of minor indirect buffs that turned out to be sizable buffs for him. First and foremost is the change to the yellow starting item, which allows him to gain that late game inescapable speed boost without sacrificing as much early game strength. The changes to the mastery tree from a while ago also mean that he can skill the slow reduction on the first tier of the defense tree, effectively cutting down his self-slow on his W by a significant amount.
    Fiora [Tier 3 Top] – After the rework to Fiora, she’s definitely at an all-time low (think release Azir status). It’s hard to tell at this point whether it’s purely due to mechanical difficulty or simply terrible stat bases, but time will tell.
    Kayle [God Tier Jungle] – Many of you question the sheer power of Kayle jungle. It’s true that she can be counterjungled early on, but her natural synergy as an on-hit based champion means that her late game with sated allows her insane amounts of damage, and the capability to split push freely knowing that even if the enemy team sends two to try and stop her, she can kill at least one.
    Malphite [God Tier Top] – With the top of the AD carry list composed of champions like Sivir and Jinx and the massive surge of champions like Master Yi in the jungle, it’s really no wonder that Malphite’s back in action with his exceedingly useful attack speed slow on his E.
    Nami [Tier 2 Support] – Nothing particularly against Nami, she’s still very viable and a strong support. However, as a floating 50% for a very long time now, I just think she’s more suited to Tier 2 [Balanced]
    Singed [Tier 1 Top] – The changes to Rylai allow him to power-spike damage much earlier than before without sacrificing his tankiness too soon. This means that he farms faster and gets bigger than ever before.
    Sivir [God Tier ADC] – Despite minor nerfs to her this patch, she still remains very strong, although at some divisions Jinx does outdo her.
    Soraka [Tier 1 Support] – Nothing particular against Sona, but at lower divisions most players have trouble fully utilizing Sona’s aura actives, especially shield procs and power chords. This means that for most players, Soraka is superior, especially since her ultimate will instantly proc Ardent Censer for all her allies regardless of where they are on the map.
    Tahm Kench [Tier 3 Support] – From anecdotal experiences, I’ve definitely seen Tahm Kenches do well, but also seen equally many do poorly. His current win rate does seem to imply more of Tier 4 position, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt as his kit is still very unique and difficult to master. It does however, provide insane benefits if you manage to snowball.
    Teemo [Tier 2 Top] – For a champion so heavily redesigned, a solid 46% win rate in the first week really isn’t too bad. I think he’s actually not terrible, but nothing to write home to mom complaining about.
    Trundle [Tier 3 Support] – After an initial Trundle hype and difficulty adapting to his skillset, it seems like players are realizing that kiting him it actually very easy and trading with him head on in melee range is probably not the best of ideas.

    Champion Explanations
    Cassiopeia [Tier 2 Top] – In the current meta with both powerful poke based champions and assassins with strong out-playing abilities being the norm, Cassiopeia lands in somewhat of a rough spot as a mid-range caster when she’s mid lane. However, top lane she can still opt for a tanky RoA + Rylai + Liandries build, while all the while cheesing on the many melee champions that frequent the lane.
    Darius [Tier 2 Top] – The new changes to Darius and complete overhaul of his core items seems to be taking a toll on him at the moment. I think he’s definitely still viable, but his statistics won’t reflect it until players begin to realize what he can and can’t do.
    Fiora [God Tier Top] – The newest edition of Fiora started off at a rocky state, but after the hotfixes to her kit, she’s quickly risen to the top of the solo queue ladder. Being a very difficult to dive champion, she plays similar to an improved Irelia. Just when you think you have her beat, she quickly turns the tables in an insanely strong fashion with heals and spell negation galore. Fiora currently has an extremely high play rate and win rate at pretty much all divisions, which is quite unusual for a champion this complex.
    Fizz [Tier 1 Jungle] – Jungle Fizz is doing quite well lately and plays similar to an Ekko with higher damage and less utility. He also synergizes well with the large number of diving champions that are popular on the rift at the moment, especially with the buffs on assassins.
    Gangplank [Tier 1 Top] – A somewhat obvious change to many solo queuers, Gangplank is definitely one of the strongest champions on the rift at the moment in top lane. With his powerful barrels and Trinity Force + Infinity Edge build, he deals a surprisingly high amount of damage while remaining fairly difficult to take down as a result of his remove scurvy spell.
    Garen [Tier 1 Top] – Garen’s showing some mixed stats at the moment depending on which divisions you’re playing at, but he’s definitely much stronger than he was before his rework. His passive modifier on his ultimate makes him incredibly strong late game as a champion that now deals percentage based true damage. Talk about a power creep!
    Kog’Maw (AP) [Tier 2 Mid] – Kog’Maw as a mid laner is still viable, but significantly reduced in strength with all the buffs to assassins that Riot decided would make the game more functionally interesting.
    Lissandra [Tier 1 Mid/Top] – The latests buffs to Lissandra give her a much larger window to escape after jumping into the center of teamfights. Apparently, this was just the thing she needed to become strong again. We’ll likely see a lot more of her soon both mid and top as a short cooldown lane bully.
    Malphite [God Tier Top] – With Vayne, Jinx, and Sivir still dominating the rift, it’s no wonder that Malphite is finding so much success on the rift. While his laning phase is definitely punishable by some more aggressive champions, his ultimate and attack speed reduction are still nearly unavoidable at most divisions.
    Mordekaiser [Tier 2 ADC] – I’ll give Mordekaiser the benefit of the doubt as an ADC as I’ve definitely seen what double relic shield can do. However, I’m not ready to accept his high winrate as much more than bot laners not taking him seriously enough.
    Nidalee [Tier 2 Jungle] – A late move from patch 5.15, Nidalee’s jungle prowess seems to be significantly more balanced after the few numbers tweaks that they put on her spear and vision radius on her W.
    Rammus [Tier 1 Jungle] – The increased armor and W damage that Rammus provides is actually fairly decent. I think he’s in a good place right now and can definitely carry games if he gets ahead.
    Shen [Tier 1 Top] – When Shen first became strong again, he was definitely extremely powerful. He could easily gank unsuspecting lanes and pick up easy double kill baits. However, a few weeks after he regained popularity, the general populace is now wise to his tricks and makes sure to either try to not get baited, or top laners make sure to stun him out of his teleport at all costs.
    Skarner [God Tier Jungle] – There’s a lot I can say about Skarner, but in a nutshell his near global speed boost presence is absolutely insane and he’s definitely the strongest jungler at the moment.
