We take a look at how Patch 10.2 changed the ADC meta in League of Legends.

Last patch was the start of the new ranked season in solo queue, but Patch 10.2 marked the start of professional League of Legends play. Although the pros aren’t playing on this current patch, we have seen why some of the more powerful ADC picks (cough Aphelios cough) received nerfs in Patch 10.2. Here is how the meta has shaken out in the latest patch and which picks are the best for you if you want to climb in ranked!

ADC tier list

S tier: Miss Fortune, Senna (⇑)
A+ tier: Caitlyn (⇓⇒)
A tier: Jinx (⇐), Lucian, Vayne
B tier: Ashe (⇐⇓), Jhin (⇐⇓), Aphelios (⇓), Draven (⇑), Kai’Sa (⇓), Yasuo
C tier: Ezreal (⇐⇓), Tristana, Xayah (⇓), Twitch (⇓),  Varus, Cassiopeia, Kalista (⇑), Heimerdinger (⇒)
D tier: Sivir (⇓), Kog’Maw (⇓), Syndra
F tier:



  • * = new to the tier list this patch
  • ⇑ = improved (rated at least one tier higher than the previous patch)
  • ⇓ = declined (rated at least one tier lower than the previous patch)
  • ⇐ = borderline-up (within 10% of being in the next-higher tier)
  • ⇒ = borderline-down (within 10% of being in the next-lower tier)


More from Blog of Legends

  • We talked a lot in the past few patches about how lane bullies and early game carries like Miss Fortune, Senna, and Caitlyn. They’re still at the top of the tier list, certainly, but we now have two scaling ADCs – Jinx and Vayne – rounding out the top six. Right now, the bot lane meta looks fairly open to a variety of picks, a welcome change from the last patch.
  • For the second straight patch, Heimerdinger took the biggest fall in our tier list, going from high-C tier to low-C tier in Patch 10.2. His win rate is fine, but his pick rate continues to fall. His drop in our tier list also might be due to the fact that he appears to have a good deal of success against Aphelios, who also dropped in this patch.
  • The biggest improvement seen in Patch 10.2 belongs to Senna, who appears to have taken over the vacuum left by Caitlyn and Aphelios at the top of the tier list. She is currently top-five in both pick rate and win rate among ADCs this patch.
  • Miss Fortune, once again, has the highest win rate in the ADC role at 53.8% with a substantial pick rate (31.3%). At some point, the pirate has to get nerfed. Shockingly, though, her next two-closest ADCs in win rate are Kalista (53.1%) and Twitch (53%), though both have a pick rate under 2%.
  • Tristana now holds the “honor” of the ADC with the worst win rate in League of Legends at 45.5%. The holder of this honor last week, Kai’Sa, is still nipping at her heels with a 46.8% win rate followed by Xayah (46.9%) and Varus (47.2%). Shockingly, all three of those champions have a greater than 7% pick rate in the bot lane despite their low ranking and win rate.

Buffed Champions


The Glorious Executioner has been struggling in early Season 10 following the item changes of the preseason, so his R – Whirling Death now scales harder. The result was a bump for him up into the B tier and a win rate that is sniffing 50% (currently at 49.7%).


The buff to her Passive – Get Excited allowing it to proc on takedowns for epic monsters seemed fairly innocuous. He ranking didn’t change at all from the last patch and, in fact, her win rate is down by about 0.5% in Patch 10.2.

Nerfed Champions


He got another round of nerfs to his arsenal in Patch 10.2 and that seemed to do the trick in terms of knocking him squarely out of the meta. He’s down in the high-B tier for this patch and has only a 48.2% win rate.

Stormrazor Users

Stormrazor lost 5 AD in Patch 10.2 in an attempt to bring it back in line with the other Energized items. After this nerf, here is how those ADCs with Stormrazor in their core build (one of their three most frequently built items other than boots) are faring compared to last patch.

  • Caitlyn = -0.387
  • Kai’Sa = -0.425
  • Tristana = -0.076
  • Average = -0.296

As you can see, this was a fairly significant nerf to Stormrazor units. On average, they dropped by more than 1/2 of a tier in Patch 10.2 as a result of these changes.

Methodology: These rankings were determined by finding the average standardized score of a champion from nine different tier lists from sites around the internet. This is done by assigning a certain weight to each different score, rank, or grade given by these sites (for instance, both a “Diamond” rating and “A” grade would be worth a 90 score). The standardized score is then determined by looking at the average score given to all champions in every role by that site as well as the standard deviation of scores given (so that sites that give out more high grades will not have their As be worth the same as a site that gives out very few high grades).

The full, underlying data can be found here. This link also includes the full listing of how the scores are assigned. Champions must be rated by at least half of the sites audited in order to qualify for our tier list.
