Rising Picks

She was the biggest riser in two positions, top and ADC. Yes, that’s right, Cassiopeia was our biggest riser for Patch 10.17 in the bot lane.

Dropping Picks

Ezreal hasn’t been nerfed recently, but that didn’t stop him from dropping out of the A+ tier down to borderline-B tier.

Underrated Picks

Only five A tier ADCs to pick from, but the least-picked among them was Vayne with a 7.4% pick rate.

Overrated Picks

Lucian is the ADC with the highest pick rate that is not also in the A tier.

Buffed Champions


She got a bump to her AD/level and the bonus attack speed on her Supercharge, helping her into the B tier. I don’t think these buffs will be enough, though, if Riot wants to make her a highly-contested pick.


He got some base attack speed per level, but he’s still languishing in the high-D tier this patch.


Ditto for Xayah, who hasn’t moved out of the D tier even after getting some more AD per level.

Nerfed Champions


We’re all chuckling about “5 MS LUL” but…okay it didn’t really seem to affect Caitlyn this patch. She’s still an S tier ADC and only saw a modest (0.5%) pick rate decrease.


Somehow, despite the nerfs Lux has jumped into the bot lane in both roles, with her having a C tier grade on her first patch on the tier list.


Ditto for Sona, who has started to gain traction as an ADC pick despite the bevy of nerfs she received.
