League Tier List (LoL Tier List): All League Champions Ranked for 8.24

League of Legends can be a brutal game. It takes time, hard work, and not just a little luck to dominate ranked play. Even then, you might be missing that competitive edge — that one little spark that pushes you over the edge of mediocrity and into greatness. That’s where our League of Legends champion tier list comes in.

We’ve gone down the list of every available champion, so far, and broken them into categories. Each of these tiers represents a level of competitive power that might tip the balance of the game in your favor. Just knowing which champs are “viable” isn’t enough, of course. You still need to practice. But our hope is that this list will point you towards the right champion to master, regardless of role.

LoL Tier List last updated during the 8.24 patch.

We’ll update it every month as the meta changes, too. So make sure to check back often for more shifts and thoughts on the state of the game. And if you want to get a sense of each character’s personality, head over to our League of Legends model viewer for a closer look!

S-Tier: The Champions Among Champions

S-tier champions are powerhouses. They’re generally picked or banned in every single game at higher ranks. More generally, the current meta allows these champions to be a great pick regardless of opposing picks.

Currently, the meta has moved back to mobility champions and away from tanky bruisers — partially due to preseason setting higher ranks a bit lower for a time. This allows the top lane to revolve around assassins with great mobility that can also shut down mobile champions. The jungle is going to be full of assassins that can shut down mobile champions and get near them. Mid lane and ADC (attack damage carry) is where the mobile champions come into play. Supports are there to help grab picks with either crowd control or burst damage.

A-Tier: Totally Solid Picks

A-tier champions are strong and work well in most games. They aren’t always banned, but are certainly more likely to give you an edge than lower ranked picks.

A majority of these champions go to folks that can abuse some of the weaker, mobile champions in the lane or simply have less mobility/strength than the previous tier. If a player takes someone mobile and squishy top, you can bet Darius or Pantheon put them in their place.

B-Tier: The Best of the Above-Average

B-tier champions are good! In fact, you might say they’re slightly better than the average champion… just not by much. These are picks that you’d probably want to have some experience with, to give yourself an edge in games. They lack true mobility most of the time, but still have something that allows them to get around — or simply survive long enough to do some damage to the enemy.

C-Tier: Only as Good as You

C-tier champions form the middle of the pack. They aren’t great, but still have a place in the current meta. These are likely to be chosen as counter-picks against the previous tiers, or excel if you simply take the time to master them.

However, in the current meta, most of these champions will just get kited by the highly mobile picks (as seen above). While some can be used quite effectively, most of these champions require skill shots or simply staying near the target.

D-Tier: Wait for a Patch

D-tier champions are currently out of the meta. They are either countered by regularly picked champions, their items of choice are weak, or they simply need some buffs overall. You can still play a D Ranked champion. You can play whatever character you enjoy! But these picks require mastery to win with regularly, as they may not have much overall impact on the game without a major lead. A few of these champions will get buffs shortly (League is always changing) that could bring them back into the C-tier or higher.

Tier lists will always be a mix of opinion and meta. As such, this is not meant as a replacement for experience with a given champion! Some champs barely fit in their tier as-is and may be towards the lower or higher end of their placement. In the end, get some practice with a champion before taking them into ranked. And make sure you have fun out there!
