Falling Champions

Kassadin (B+ to B tier)

Ironically, Kassadin’s win rate is the highest it’s been in five patches, over 51%, yet he dropped in our tier list. He does have a fair few number of believers (three sites have him has an A tier mid) but an equal number of doubters (three other sites grade him as a C or D).

Zilean (B to C tier)

Zilean has flip-flopped between the B and C tiers over the last few tier lists. Now, he is on the bad side of that equation. However, given the fact that the plurality of sites gave Zilean an A grade and his 54.6% win rate is the second-best among mid laners (though it comes with the caveat of a less-than-1% pick rate), I think this is undervaluing him.

Sylas (A to C tier)

Those nerfs in Patch 9.12 hurt Sylas, no question. Not only did he fall several tiers, his win rate also plummetted. Currently sitting at 42.9%, Sylas has the worst win percentage of any mid lane champion.

Cassiopeia (C to D tier)

Her win rate – like Kassadin’s – also rose to it’s highest level in several patches (52.2%) so I think this rating is probably flawed. However, I will note that as many sites excluded her as gave her a B or A grade (three) so I don’t think her ceiling right now is much higher.
