We give our League of Legends tier list for Patch 10.18.

As we approach the 2020 World Championship, we also begin to focus on the “Worlds Patch” as the meta for the tournament begins to take shape. Patch 10.18 has brought several significant changes to champions like Ahri and Kayle, but now that our aggregated tier list is out, we can see whether those changes really affected the meta and changed our tier list.

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from eight different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in Patch 10.18. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each champion that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. As always, you can find the link to all the underlying data here.

Rising Picks

After those significant buffs we discussed in a previous article, it’s no surprise that Kayle went from the high-C to mid-B tier in Patch 10.18, the biggest jump in rankings for all top laners.

Dropping Picks

There’s a lot of disagreement as to where Cassiopeia fits in the top lane meta, but opinion appears to be cooling off this patch. She fell from the low-B tier down to the mid-C tier.

Underrated Picks

Urgot remains the most underrated A tier pick in the top lane, with only a 1.3% pick rate for the second patch in a row.

Overrated Picks

Once again, half of the top ten top laners in terms of pick rate did not make the A tier of our aggregated tier list. Akali, Mordekaiser, Irelia, and Jayce all remain from last patch, but they’re now joined by Lucian, who is solidly in the B tier but not good enough to justify his almost-9% pick rate.

Buffed Champions


As we discussed earlier, the many buffs to her three basic abilities have indeed brought her back into the meta, as she’s almost-unanimously rated at least a B tier pick.


While those Flamespitter buffs did heat up Rumble’s ranking a bit, he’s still floundering down in the high-C tier this patch.

Nerfed Champions


Riot took a swing at Sett that was an overall nerf to bruiser set but a bit of a buff to the more glass-cannon damage Sett. The ultimate effect on him in the top lane is that Sett is a bit weaker, but still A tier.


The nerfs to his Ki Barrier’s shield should have brought him a bit more in line with the other top laners, but even after Patch 10.18 went live he’s still in the S tier. We’ll have to watch and see if Riot continues to chip away at his power.
