  • ⇒ = borderline-down (within 10% of being in the next-lower tier)

Rising Picks

Thanks to some buffs to his passive, Conflagration, and Pyroclasm, Brand is our biggest riser in the mid lane. He’s moved up from the F tier to the C tier in one patch after the buffs.

Dropping Picks

For two straight patches, Camille mid had the biggest drop in the role. She fell all the way into the F tier from the low-C tier.

Underrated Picks

It’s incredible that, even after she has been A tier for several patches and just got buffed, Annie still has the lowest pick rate of all mid laners rated A or above.

Overrated Picks

Zoe, Akali, Twisted Fate, and Lucian all remain in the overrated category in Patch 10.22, with top ten pick rates in mid but not even making the A tier.

Buffed Champions


Big buffs to her Molten Shield brought Annie up a tier into the A+ graded mids. Underrated and insanely strong, mid laners should be looking to play more Annie.


As noted above, the buffs to Brand lit a fire (hehehe) to bring him up into the C tier.


Even though she saw some play at Worlds, Leblanc got buffs to the mana cost and damage on her Ethereal Chains in Patch 10.22 that helped move her out of our C tier and into our B tier this patch.

Nerfed Champions


It’s deemed a “quality of life” change, but standardizing the distance of Galio’s Justice Punch dash does somewhat limit his playmaking ability. That said, he’s still in a great spot in the A+ tier.


Reducing the damage on his Shadow Slash did nothing to topple the king of the mid lane in solo queue.
