If you’re a little confused, let me assure you no part of the Patch 9.2 tier list was cut off or deleted. No mid lane champion met the threshold to meet the S tier in this ranking.

Instead, we have a ton of champions in the A tier as viable picks, and mid lane remains the strongest overall role in the game. This role has become perfectly balanced – as all things should be – with no champions clearly dominating the others.

The usual suspects remain at the top, with Ahri, Lissandra, and Karthus in the top three. Kassadin, who normally occupied the S or high-A tiers, has fallen off significantly as a result of those recent nerfs in Patch 9.2.

Then there’s poor Galio, who caught the nerf hammer across his mouth, knocking him from S tier to C tier. In all the time we have been tracking these stats, we’ve never seen a champion’s ranking fall that much in one patch.

Riot has already admitted that they overshot on Galio, and put out a hotfix for the Colossus today. Time will tell if that is going to be enough to stabilize his drop.
