League of Legends Tier List: The Best Support Champions on Patch 11.1

We give our League of Legends aggregated solo queue tier list for Patch 11.1, looking at the best support champions!

The last of the position-by-position tier lists for Patch 11.1 concludes in the support role. With all the preseason changes to support itemization, making sure you have the right champion pick is essential.

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in Patch 11.1. 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.

Key

  • ⇑ = improved (rated at least one tier higher than the previous patch)
  • ⇓ = declined (rated at least one tier lower than the previous patch)
  • ⇐ = borderline-up (within 10% of being in the next-higher tier)
  • ⇒ = borderline-down (within 10% of being in the next-lower tier)

Rising Picks

No surprise that Rell took a big jump up our tier list, as most champions do after they’ve been released for a patch or two. Galio also got a massive boost to his ranking on this patch, and a few others got smaller, but significant, raises to their rating (Maokai and Gragas).

Falling Picks

Annie, Brand, and Fiddlesticks all took massive dips on Patch 11.1, while Tahm Kench, Neeko, Twitch, Lux, Soraka, and Senna took significant drops.

Underrated Picks

Zilean is the most underrated A tier support, with only a 2.85% pick rate in Platinum and above.

Overrated Picks

For the second consecutive patch, Yuumi is the most-picked support that is not in the A tier or better.

Buffed Champions

Karma (C tier ⇒ C tier)

Nerfed Champions

Fiddlesticks (F tier ⇒ F tier)
Pantheon (A tier ⇒ B tier)
