Looking for the perfect LoL tier list? As with all popular MOBA games, the League of Legends meta constantly evolves and changes with every new patch, following plenty of champion buffs, nerfs, and balance changes released every two weeks.
We've curated our own tier lists for each lane, picking only the most overpowered champions by using statistical analysis of each champion's win rate, ban rate, and pick rate. These champions will be categorized from S-Tier to Avoid-Tier in this tier list.
Pick and choose the characters according to the lanes you excel in, as most of these League of Legends champions are viable in every game to climb the ranked ladder in solo queue!
As a general rule of thumb in champion selection, ensure your team has at least one Tank for the frontline and a decent Jungler. Here is our patch 13.19 LoL tier list for low ELO and high ELO, ordered according to their specific lanes, so you can dominate Summoner's Rift in no time!
League of Legends has a beloved cast of 165 champions in the game after the newest champion, Briar's release. With so many characters in the game, which League of Legends champions are the best?
All League of Legends champions are split into their lanes or roles: Top, Jungle, Mid, Support, and Bottom/ADC. Some characters can perform a dual-hybrid function, accustomed to fit into two lanes, establishing themselves as a meta hero for any situation. For example, Lux excels at in Mid and as a Support in Bot.
Here are all the champions in League of Legends, split into their lanes.
Top lane is the ideal place for players with a lot of patience. In the early game, Top can be lonely as most of the action happens in the bottom half of the map due to dragons coming up and the duo nature of bot lane. Tankier champions are often seen in Top, and they tend to instigate team fights and try to soak up as much damage as possible for their team.
To survive and thrive in Top, a champion with sustainability, mobility, and hefty damage is necessary. Crowd control (CC) abilities are also a must, so you can stop an overstepping enemy in their tracks to set up a gank for your Jungler. Hullbreaker is also a great item for Top laners who want to be left alone to seige the opponent's base.
The Jungle role has always been the most influential in League of Legends, and are considered the team's backbone. A strong Jungler will be able to set the pace of your team's success by ganking all three lanes, clearing jungle camps, and claiming important objectives like dragon buffs and Baron Nashor.
Luckily, Riot have made the Jungler role more accessible for Season 13, especially with the new Jungle pets. However, a God-Tier champion for the Jungle role can make or break a team, forcing the enemy Jungler ALT-F4 and rage quit if played well. Without further ado, here is our jungle tier list for League of Legends!
League of Legends champions positioned in Mid are often hefty damage dealers with plenty of poke abilities. As long as they are positioned correctly, they can become fed and transform into a menace to the point where the enemy team will struggle with counters. Being in Mid is a prime position; you can roam to help other lanes and even assist your Jungle with claiming objectives like Rift Herald.
The Mid-lane can consist of anything from a spellcasting mage to a stealthy burst assassin. Due to Mid being the shortest lane in LoL, it's often subjected to a constant barrage of attacks and is most often the winning lane. Map awareness, damage and CC are both super important if you want to succeed in Mid; you can punish the enemy for getting too close to you or your tower.
The bottom lane is home to the ADCs (Attack Damage Carries). Often a ranged champion with low base HP, the main role of an ADC is to kill other squishy enemies. They used to be the most essential role in the game, wracking up XP and Gold and snowballing into an all-power killing machine with the potential to 1v5 and dominate the rest of the map.
Since Riot Games' focus has been on Top Lane and Jungle this season, ADCs are being neglected and require more effort to perform well, especially in low Diamond and low ELO. Nevertheless, some strong, unconventional champions have emerged to fulfill the ADC role, including Swain, Ziggs, and Twitch, which have win rates over 54%!
Support champions should always be in the same lane as their ADC during the laning phase, and then they can roam later on. There are several types of Supports, including Enchanters (usually focus on healing/protecting), Engagers (usually have CC abilities), and Poke (usually concentrate on dealing damage and poking the enemy).
The role of a Support champion in League of Legends is to protect and support their teammates, whether through small buffs like movement and attack speed, healing, or keeping them out of harm's way. As such, Tank champions can often fill in the Support role by merely soaking damage for their entire team. Support champions will increase the odds of winning team fights and objectives by being the team's lifeline, and therefore become a high priority target for the enemy.
Engage Supports are the best champions to climb the ranks with, as they can roam the map and act as a secondary Jungler to disrupt and displace the enemy team. Enchanters like Yuumi and Nami are generally much weaker in patch 13.19, especially in high ELO.
That was our League of Legends tier list for patch 13.19 - hopefully, you'll be scoring a Pentakill in no time! Please remember that the LoL meta is constantly changing with every update and patch note. This tier list is only a rough guideline.
Despite this tier list, there are no definitive rules on what LoL champions can and cannot be played. There are no outright "best champions" in the game, so take these LoL tiers with a pinch of salt.
An Avoid-Tier champion may work exceptionally well within specific team compositions and doesn't necessarily mean a loss. In contrast, a God-Tier champion doesn't automatically guarantee a win, either. It all boils down to your skill level, experience, game sense, and the enemy team.
We will update this article whenever there's a noticeable meta shift or when a new LoL patch goes live, so watch this space! If you want more League of Legends content, check out our ARAM guide, the rarest skins in the game, summoner spells, Your Shop, and a champion guide for Lillia!
