Tons of buffs to under-played mid laners like Lissandra and Yasuo highlighted the changes of Patch 11.7. But none of the S tier mid laners got changes to the top of the League of Legends tier list.

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 11.7. 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.
