League of Legends Tier List: The Best Top Laners on Patch 11.4

Top laners breathed a sigh of relief when Patch 11.4 dropped, including Renekton and Camille nerfs. With some changes to other popular top laners like Tryndamere, Urgot, and Fiora, there was hope the meta would open up. Unfortunately, it seems that our League of Legends tier list largely remains unchanged.

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 League of Legends Patch 11.4. 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.

Let’s dive into all the changes to our League of Legends tier list on Patch 11.4!

Rising Picks

Unsurprisingly, the two biggest risers on Patch 11.4 were Fiora and Tryndamere. Trynd’s rise was smaller, just a bit over half a tier, but Fiora rose a full tier in our tier list.

Falling Picks

Camille dropped the furthest in this patch after her nerfs, falling almost a full tier. Other fringe top lane picks like Warwick and Dr. Mundo also took significant hits to their rankings.

Underrated Picks

Please start picking Cho’Gath. His pick rate actually dropped in Patch 11.4 to 0.77%, which is absurd for an A tier champion in the role.

Overrated Picks

Renekton fell out of the A tier last patch but somehow still has a top-three pick rate (11.29%). It’s time to drop the Croc, who is only a high-B pick at the moment.

Buffed Champions

Fiora (B tier ⇒ A tier)
Urgot (B tier ⇒ B tier)
Tryndamere (C tier ⇒ B tier)

Nerfed Champions

Camille (S tier ⇒ A tier)
Renekton (B tier ⇒ B tier)
