There weren’t a lot of changes to the jungle in Patch 9.12 but has our League of Legends tier list changed?

After our mid lane tier list, we move on to the jungle! Patch 9.12 didn’t touch on the jungle too heavily, so we expect that there won’t be huge changes in the meta rankings. Still, who do the different tier lists say is the best jungler in League of Legends?

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. We also provide some guidance for how to use these tier lists (i.e. what do we mean when we say a champion is S tier vs. A tier) 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 13).

The aggregated tier list for junglers in Patch 9.12, was determined by the average ranking among the following sites, excluding the highest and lowest scores:
