League of Legends Tier List - January 2021

0 Comments

This page features our League of Legends Tier List.  We keep the LoL Tier List current with the meta and typically update it monthly unless there is a patch or content update from Riot Games. The Tier List is based on our own playing experience as well as research into all other tier lists we find relevant for ranked play.

One note about our LoL Tier List:  We base our list on champions that are popular and playable across ALL ranks and levels of play, rather than the top ranks only.  We prefer our list of champions to be accessible to the average player rather than a few at the top tiers of play.


The League of Legends Tier List is divided into four tiers:


Tier 1 - First Pick/First Ban

These champions represent the current top tier picks in the meta. They sit above the current power state of the meta and should be considered both first pick and first ban. These champions also represent solid picks for players at all skill levels.

Tier 2

These champions represent the current power state of the meta across most skill levels. They are considered balanced and can be picked safely by any player for most team compositions.

Tier 3

These champions represent the bottom of the current meta in terms of power, scaling and lane push. They should really not be considered at lower skill levels unless you have a great deal of experience with them or are filling a specific role in team play.

Tier 4 - Not Currently Viable

These champions represent the absolute basement of the current meta. They should almost never be chosen unless you are a glutton for punishment or are exceptionally experienced at playing them.
