League of Legends Tier List: The Best ADC Champions on Patch 11.8

Patch 11.8 included some Aphelios buffs and not much else that would effect the roster of ADC champions. As a result, there weren’t too many changes on this patch’s 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 11.8. 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.
