We take a look at the best AD Carries after Patch 10.5 has gone live in League of Legends.

In Patch 10.5, Riot took a break from trying to balance Aphelios and Senna, just focusing on some other, under-appreciated champions in the bot lane. With just a couple of changes to champions and the Blade of the Ruined King buffs only affecting melees, we look at whether the bot lane meta in League of Legends has changed.

  • Kai’sa got the biggest bump to her ranking in Patch 10.5, which isn’t shocking considering she just got a nice buff. The biggest drop in our tier list from the last patch is actually a relative newcomer. Taliyah dropped from the mid-D tier down to the F tier in the ADC role this patch.
  • Heimerdinger currently has the highest win rate in the bot lane at 54.6%, but he has a pick rate below 1%. For champions with a significant pick rate (over 5%), Miss Fortune has the highest win rate at 52.3%.
  • The worst bot laner by win rate is the newly-buffed Kai’Sa. She has a 47.2% win rate but a robust 27.8% pick rate. Other low win rate champions include Xayah (47.5% win rate) and Varus (48.8%).

Buffed Champions


Once the prime pick in the ADC role, Kai’Sa ate enough nerfs to feed a village, dropping her as low as low-B tier in our rankings (she nearly hit C tier last patch). She got damage buffs to her base and upgraded Icathian Rain and Void Seeker, helping her to get back into the A tier. 


Sivir has been towards the middle/bottom of the ADC ranks to start Season 10, so Riot gave her some love on her Boomerang Blade damage and the speed boost on her On the Hunt. The result was a slight bump to her ranking (from low-C to mid-C tier) and an increased win rate by over 2%. Not substantial, but the nerfs do look to be effective and she could climb higher next patch.

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.
