S tier: Vayne, Jinx
A tier: Sivir, Miss Fortune, Ashe, Draven, Twitch, Jhin, Ezreal
B tier: Kai’Sa, Kog’Maw
C tier: Yasuo, Xayah, Caitlyn, Tristana, Lucian, Varus
D tier: Kalista

Moving to the ADC role, we see very curiously that there hasn’t been a lot of upward mobility since the last patch. The top four ADCs for low elo – Vayne, Jinx, Sivir, and Miss Fortune – haven’t moved from their positions at all. In fact, it’s not until Ezreal that we see any changes to the tier list, but even he remained in the A tier.

Having said that, there were plenty of champions that dropped relative to last patch. In particular, Caitlyn and Tristana dropped from B tier to C tier. Most shockingly, though, is that they are joined by Lucian, a former A tier pick in the bot lane.

More effective in low elo:
Jinx (S vs. A tier)
Jhin (A vs. B tier)
Yasuo (C vs. D tier)
