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.

S+ (OP)

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



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



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.



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.



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.



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

tahm kench and shen is S+ since they have strong pressure and can help in teamfights immensly even if i are behind. also shen and tahm can go toe to toe and even has an adventage agaisnt the other s+ such as shen's basic attack dodge to counter sett irelia riven etc. most useful to team and can compete well agaisnt others and can win more as seen by my own experience that it is quite easy to play agaisnt other champs like irelia and kill them easily or just be safe easily if behind.
ak521 (21) | October 3, 2021 9:25am
I see your first point, that justifies them being S tier.
Shen loses into Sett I know, and to my belief Riven and Irelia can easily outplay Shen as well.
I factor the skill/mastery cap into the ratings, since Shen's is relatively low and Irelia/Riven have super high skill caps, they are more versatile than Shen and TK.
Part of this reasoning also is the fact that I want to spread the tier list out but not for S+. If I were to have 30 champions in A Tier, that's not very helpful, and if I were to have 5 in S+, then it's difficult to tell who is the best. So it's not like I'm disagreeing with you, but more of for visual purposes.

I wouldve placed Jayce , Rengar as A tier .
ak521 (21) | September 18, 2021 3:58pm
I'll move Jayce up to C, but neither pick has a solid potential in every matchup. They're not really comparable to reliable picks such as Garen or Darius. Rengar especially is matchup reliant.
PK Noob (6) | September 10, 2021 10:13pm
Just my opinion because I'm a one trick Gwen but I would place her into S tier. When played in teamfights she is excellent at peeling because her w forces a fight with just the enemy frontline. This is useful for taking out the tanks then moving on to the squishes. She can also just burst the backline instantly if she wanted to too. Gwen isn't as tanky, but she certainly has her healing to keep her alive just as long as a tank and does maybe even more damage than the S tier champs.

Good job on the tier list though. I think its pretty accurate and agreeable.
ak521 (21) | September 11, 2021 10:15am
I agree. Thanks for your comment.
Karinutsa (6) | September 9, 2021 5:42am
Overall it looks good. Good job! <3

I would place Teemo in B. He can either build for shroom damage or Q damage.
And Akali in A. She got nerfed a lot, but the way she is constructed , with her 4 dashes, still makes her a threat for any squishy top champs.
ak521 (21) | September 11, 2021 10:16am
I think Akali is perfect within C Tier. C Tier has the nuance that if the player is experienced then it has potential. Her weak early game makes her not a good pick top lane especially considering that many champions could bully her.
I agree about Teemo.
Thanks for your comment.

This tier list is really accurate however I personally believe a few champions are not in the correct tiers.

Ornn >> A Tier
Kennen >> A Tier (especially with the buffs next patch)
Camille >> OP Tier
Irelia >> Atleast S Tier
Tahm Kench >> A Tier
ak521 (21) | July 17, 2021 8:26am
I appreciate your comment. I'll make a few adjustments.
Milad7 (2) | July 14, 2021 9:44pm
there is no world where both sett and fiora are S+ tier and riven/camille/irelia/gwen are below them, riven atm is S+ imo, gwen beats 99% of the melee matchups so she belongs in s+, irelia became broken after mini rework and also should be s+, camille is always good so s tier, morde too weak for s tier, but he's getting a buff so maybe next patch, also aatrox should be A tier at least
Grifynn (2) | May 26, 2021 4:40am
For some reason, seeing Sett next to Poppy hurts me. Though this is very very accurate, I feel like Rengar should be B tier. Rengar (even though in top lane his performance is much more dependent on skill and opponent), Rengar being a jungler makes him have a different laning in comparison to other top lane picks. It's easy to get a lead top lane with him in certain matches which could (as stated) make him S tier, but also fail horribly if he doesn't get that pressure or have a good matchup. Generally because of his starting power and mind games I'd say he's a B tier instead.
MegadabYt | May 8, 2021 4:06pm
Wheres Noc?
Kingwizard | April 21, 2021 8:10pm
gp and singed are a b tier, as for yorick is in s+ heres why: he destroys lanes fast and people still dont know how to counter him well ez
Kingwizard | April 21, 2021 8:10pm
i agree on most of the tier list except camile just take her off would ya she is gross
Ch4rZ4ku | April 18, 2021 1:05pm
And then there's Shaco top S++
