The final League of Legends tier list for Patch 9.11 brings us to the top lane!

The last of our Patch 9.11 positional tier lists is the top lane, which saw very few adjustments to its meta. Yes, a few regulars on our list like Jayce and Akali got nerfs, but otherwise you would be justified going into this tier list expecting it to be fairly static from the last patch. But was that the case?

As always, these rankings are determined by collecting data from the tier lists and rankings of eight different sites to give you the average strength of each champion in the five roles of League of Legends. To explain how we develop this tier list 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.

If you’re interested, you can also find all of the underlying data for this and all the past patches here as well as our guide for how to best use our tier lists here. When evaluating the sites and tier lists, we used data for Platinum plus players worldwide. The individual sites we audited are also listed below (note the rankings are as of 5 PM EST on June 2).
