We take a look at the League of Legends jungle meta in Patch 10.2.

While the jungle meta was pretty stagnant at the beginning of the ranked season, in the last few patches the League of Legends meta has shaken up somewhat. With promises of buffs to jungle XP in future patches (cue excited squealing by junglers who will no longer be down three levels to their teammates, we’ll focus instead on the Patch 10.2 changes and how the jungle meta is currently.

  • In a somewhat remarkable change, the top ten of our jungle tier list has suddenly become a lot more skewed towards the late game with champions like Karthus and Master Yi entering the fray. For sure, the jungle is still early focused with champions like Elise and Lee Sin thriving, but perhaps junglers are beginning to adapt to the new pathing.
  • The biggest drop in our ranking from the last patch belongs to Volibear, who dropped from high-C tier down to mid-D tier in this patch. It’s a shame because Voli has been in a fairly stable, decent spot the past few patches, but as of right now he doesn’t even have enough data as a jungler to rank on OP.GG.
  • Trundle had the biggest rise in our rankings from the last patch to this one. He flew across the ice sheet from mid-D tier to nearly being in the B tier in Patch 10.2. His pick rate is minuscule (less than 1%) but he got a 5% win rate increase from last patch!
  • The jungler with the best win rate in Patch 10.2 is Ivern, at 54.2% (but only a 1.2% pick rate). The rest of the top five winningest junglers, Karthus (54%), Master Yi (53.1%), Shyvana (52.9%), and Warwick (52.8%) all have at least a 2% pick rate.
  • The lowest win rate jungler in Patch 10.2 is Qiyana at 42.9% with a pick rate of under 1%. Joining her at the bottom of the win rate rankings are Sylas (44.2%) and Nocturne (45.6%).

Buffed Champions


I don’t think these particular buffs in Patch 10.2 (to his W – Frozen Domain‘s movement speed and E – Pillar of Ice‘s slow) suddenly made him an okay jungler. Trundle’s been getting buffed constantly for almost a year now and it feels like this was the patch where the damn finally burst. That said, both of these changes are much better for his jungle ganks, which is where he had struggled in the meta.

Nerfed Champions


Riot said in their Patch 10.2 notes that they wanted to tone down her oppressive jungle power (which is odd considering she’s had one of the lowest win rates in the role for a while now and hasn’t been a massively oppressive pick in pro play). They hit her W – Terrashape‘s passive attack speed, which hurt her clear and dropped her to the F tier. She’s the lowest-ranked jungler in this patch with the lowest win rate.

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.
