Buffed Champions


Thanks to the buff on the iced duration of her Glacial Storm, Anivia has been gliding up the mid lane tier list in Patch 10.6. She has moved out of the C tier up to the B tier thanks to these buffs.


Some light buffs to Ryze’s mana per level and damage on his Rune Prison were meant to bring up his solo queue power (especially late game) while not making him pick/ban in pro play. Thus far, that goal seems to have been somewhat met, as Ryze is still in the C tier of our tier list.

Twisted Fate

Riot stacked the deck in TF’s favor, boosting the AP ratios on his blue and red cards. This had really no effect on his win rate (so far), nor his rating. He remains in the C tier of our mid lane tier list.


Some stat buffs and buffs to the base damage on Veigar’s Baleful Strike were sold as small buffs for the smol boy (I can hear him getting angry already). As we noted above, the buffs weren’t that smol as he rose into the B tier and his win rate is over 50% for the first time since Patch 9.24.


In a mini-rework, Riot explicitly stated that they didn’t want to risk making Wukong stronger as a mid laner than he already was. Well, Wukong did rejoin the mid lane meta for the first time in Season 10 after being in-and-out of the meta in Season 9. He’s low-D tier, so he’s not a priority pick, but a few sites that graded him had Wukong as an A or S tier mid laner.


Riot took aim at Xerath’s ability to snipe from long distances, boosting the power on his Eye of Destruction and Rite of the Arcane. While it gave him a slight rise in our tier list, he remains in the C tier with a win rate below 50% in the current patch.

Nerfed Champions


Not meant to be a mid laner, Garen has nonetheless been a part of the mid lane meta the past few patches. Riot took some nerfs to his MR per level, which should have weakened Garen in the mid game in particular. However, Garen keeps spinning in the D tier.

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.
