Description

Welcome to the Meta Tier List for Top! Over here we have put all the top laners into various ratings, S+ being the highest and D being the lowest. Note that some low-ranking champions may be able to perform better than higher ranked ones, depending on the way they are played / the person playing them. No tier list is perfect, and this is all opinion-based. Let me know if you disagree with anything etc. PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST OF THESE PLACEMENTS ARE BASED IN MID-ELO (Plat) AND PLENTY EXPERIENCE & KNOWLEDGE OF EACH PLACED CHAMPION (Mastery 4+). For example, a champion like Gangplank would be F Tier if played by a newbie.
I've put the tier list to follow orders within each tier, meaning the Left of each tier is more powerful than the right side.
1

S+ (OP)

Current OP Champions. Generally very favorable to pick with high potential to snowball and carry games. Essential part to the team.

2

S

Champions that are in the meta and generally do well, with clear purpose to the team.

3

A

Champions that are in the meta, but either inconsistent or underperforming due to lower playmaking ability or other, more powerful champions being able to outplay and counter them. Overall weaker in damage/tank than S tier champions.

4

B

Champions that aren't necessarily overlooked, but not doing as well as many others with many champions being able to outplay them. Champions have few weaknesses that can be mitigated by the player of the champion.

5

C

Champions that are not in the meta but have some potential to impact the game through playmaking, especially when experienced. Champions have clear weaknesses that are often abused.

6

D

Champions that generally are inconsistent, lack playmaking potential, and struggle to duel and match the power of other top laners. Champions are weak and lack the general ability to impact games.Champions that generally are inconsistent, lack playmaking potential, and struggle to duel and match the power of other top laners.

Why Gwen is C tier ??? She's understimate...

ak521 (23) | February 27, 2022 7:48am
I could possibly see her as B, but with the mix of champions in C right now, it's not all that bad for Gwen (most of the C Tier champions are still good). The tiers are just a little more spread out, if that makes sense.
Regardless there's going to be some incoming nerfs next patch that would keep her in C or push her into D.

Don't worry... She's nerfed now :/

Where Graves?

ak521 (23) | February 22, 2022 4:18pm
I probably could add him seeing the playrate rise, but I tend not to include off-meta picks.
I'll add him next update

Thanks

Note Janna is S tier for this patch, but is not added since I am excluding non-relevant picks (Janna abandons lane early).
