Similar to Kha’Zix in the jungle, Lucian is no longer the only AD Carry occupying the S tier in our Patch 8.24(b) tier list. Kai’Sa has joined him at the top of the heap after this patch. It’s unclear what allowed Kai’Sa to make this huge leap from the bottom of the A tier to the S tier over other A tier champs like Jhin, Draven, and MF, considering she got no significant buffs in the 8.24 or 8.24(b) patches.

Unsurprisingly, several of the ADCs that received buffs in either Patch 8.24 and/or Patch 8.24(b) rose up in our tier lists. Most notably, Caitlyn jumped from C tier to A tier following the buffs to her Q and ultimate. Certainly, having more pushing and early dueling power is helping Caitlyn use her early range advantage to shove and take turret platings, which should allow her to accumulate a nice gold lead going into her weaker mid-game.

Although Riot has said that crit ADCs would be getting some love in the new season, it’s interesting to see that most of them improved in the Patch 8.24(b) tier list. Not only did the champions that got directly buffed – Tristana and Caitlyn – improve their standings, so did other traditional crit AD Carries like Ashe, Sivir, and Jinx. Perhaps the decline of the crit ADC is somewhat overblown?
