The bot lane of League of Legends has been dominated by Vayne for a few patches now, but did her reign continue after a core item was nerfed?

Time for another edition of our League of Legends tier list for Patch 9.8, this time focusing on the AD Carry position! For a quick synopsis, our goal with this tier list is to audit the tier lists and rankings of multiple different sites to give you the average strength of each champion in the five roles of League of Legends.

To do so, we take each rating for the tier list and normalize that value, making sure that an A rating on one site and a “God tier” rating on another can be accurately compared. This is done by creating a normalized value based on all rankings given out by that site so the average standardized rating is 0.00 with higher numbers being good to very good rankings and negative numbers being bad rankings.

For full transparency, you can find the full spreadsheet of all our data here. When evaluating the tier lists, we tried to only use data for Platinum plus players. The individual sites we audited are also listed below (note the rankings are as of 8 PM EST on April 18).

So, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
