Isn’t everyone just so shocked and pleased to see Lucian retaining the top spot of these rankings for AD Carries? At least this time he’s alone in the S tier (again) as Kai’Sa falls well behind the lead car. Once again, Lucian has the biggest difference between the best and second-best champions at their position.

One champion who has risen up swiftly is Vayne, following the buffs to her tumble/ult combination in Patch 9.1. She is now firmly in the A tier, comparable to champions like Draven and Kai’Sa, whereas before she was middling in the B tier.

Kalista was one of the champions to get changes to her kit in the last patch, yet her standing on these tier lists remains unchanged. She is still struggling to compete with off-meta picks like Yasuo and Cassiopeia.

We did notice that Caitlyn and Ashe had jumped to the A tier in the last tier list. Yet now, they both drop to the B tier, sitting alongside Jinx, Tristana, and Kalista. This indicates that the problems for crit ADCs that Riot intends to solve in the coming patch are well warranted. Luckily, those changes should be arriving sooner, rather than later.
