Rising Picks

The mid laner with the biggest improvement in Patch 10.10 was easily Annie, who went from low-C tier up into the low-B tier following her buffs.

Dropping Picks

The biggest drop in the mid lane was Renekton, who is quickly falling out of the mid lane meta. He’s now out of the D tier where he was in Patch 10.9, down into the F tier.

Underrated Picks

Three champions, Veigar, Pyke, Annie earn the honor of underrated picks, being in the B tier but with some of the lowest pick rates in the role. None have a pick rate over 2%, but all are in our B tier.

Overrated Picks

For the second-straight patch, Leblanc and Sylas are among our picks for overrated mid laners. Both have a pick rate in the top-10 for their role this patch, but are rated in the B tier on our tier list.

Buffed Champions


She’s on fire after the buffs to her Molten Shield’s damage reduction and the aura damage on her Summon: Tibbers. LS will be happy to see her rising up our tier list, but maybe a bit miffed she’s only low-B tier.


Buffs to her Flawless Duet’s damage helped bring her up just slightly, from the low now up to the mid-C tier in the mid lane.

Twisted Fate

A little love to his AD, armor, and the mana cost on his ultimate have our favorite card dealer raking in chips and elo. He jumped up from the B tier into the low-A tier after the Patch 10.10 buffs.

Nerfed Champions


Small nerfs to her base health and AD had little to no impact on her status as a low-S tier mid.


Nerfing the dagger damage on her passive helped cool down the lady that’s been running over mid lane all year. Now slipping out of the S tier down to the A+ tier doesn’t seem like that big a hit, but I’ll note that this is the lowest that Katarina has been ranked in our tier lists in Season 10.
