After those big jungle XP changes have settled, Patch 11.6 was aimed more at settling some of the outliers in the jungle role like Udyr and Hecarim (still). As a result, our League of Legends tier list hasn’t changed a ton, even after taking one patch off.

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 11.6. 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.
