FOTM Tier List: All Characters Ranked

What does FOTM mean? Well, the flavor of the Month tier list or more commonly known as the fotm tier list is a list that discusses the meta of a respective season or patch of a game. The game we will be discussing is called League of Legends. If you are a fan of solo queuing, then keeping up with the FOTM League of Legends is mandatory.

With major meta changes coming in every patch, it’s hard to keep up with the pace, which is why we have made this tier list. You no longer will have to go through countless champions’ win rates and pick rates and still be confused about whom to play to secure that win.

When it comes to tier lists, there is always a party that does not agree with the author. Therefore, this is a disclaimer that you may not agree with our assessment of the League of Legends Champions. Another thing to keep in mind is that this fotm tier list is based around Season 12 and patch 12.5-.12.7 of the game. We will be discussing some key champions in detail, whilst the others will be discussed briefly. They will be ranked from S to F Tiers based on their playability these last few patches.

S Tier

S Tier Image

S-tier is universally known to contain the best of the absolute best. They dominate in their field and serve as the upper limit of what perfection looks like. Now when it comes to FOTM League of Legends, the S-tier champs are the ones who are perfect in their roles but also very likely to be nerfed in the near future. This makes meta continuously change so players have more content to experience in-game. Some S-Tier champions of this fotm tier list are discussed below.

Mid-Laners

The champions who will be playing in the mid-lane of the game map are included in this section. The champions in the fotm tier list who can hold their own in an outnumbered match along with farming sufficiently are usually played as mid-laners. Most of these champions have good mobility and a very strong influence throughout the match on the tempo of the fights.

Ahri

Ahri is currently one of the most powerful champions in the meta. Once she has farmed up enough, it becomes exponentially to potentially win in a 1v1 against her. The nine-tailed vastaya early game is not that powerful, but she can easily farm up without any great difficulty. She has a win rate of 52% with a pick rate of 14%. She is a pretty uncommon target for bans, as her ban rate is at 18% which is average in this fotm league of the legends tier list. A good Ahri build can be found here.

Difficulty: Medium

Yasuo

Yasuo is an extremely annoying champion if left unchecked. His ban rate sits at 21% and for a reason. His ability to clutch up in situations when he is outnumbered is quite astonishing, and so is his ability to feed enemies. He is not a champ favored in high ELO, but you’ll definitely see a lot of him in low ELO. A good Yasuo build can be found here.

Difficulty: High

Viegar

Viegar is one of the most challenging champions to master in the game. However,  his high-skill cap is justified because his ability to dominate the map is too good. Among this fotm tier list, his spot on S-Tier is well deserved because of his disruptive kit. Viegar’s damage comes in bursts, which is good to halt an enemy team’s carry while also making room for his team to be aggressive.

Difficulty: High

Zed

As a player who plays mid a lot, Zed is always on my ban list. His early game bully with the late game domination is not to be taken lightly. He has one of the highest ban rates at almost a 30%. Zed, the kind of shadows, can easily win 1v3s or 1v4s if teams do not have good enough coordination. His skull cap is also well deserved of its spot lying with some of the most mechanically complicated champions in the game like Viegar or Yasuo.

Difficulty: High

Viktor

Viktor is one of the best champions to have in a team fight. His crowd-control ability is among the best in the game, which is why he is in the S-tier of this fotm tier list. His early game, however, is pretty bad, which is why his pick rate among low ELO is pretty low.

Difficulty: High

Akali

Akali is one of the hardest champions to counter late game. In the right hands, she can easily carry the entire game for her team. She is not seen a lot in low elo because of her complex and difficult kit. Akali’s kit helps her escape tedious situations with ease most of the time, halting enemy farms and ganks.

Difficulty: Medium

Top-Laners

Champions who are played in the Top lane of the map are known as top-laners. These fotm tier list champions are known for being very tanky and extremely good at taking large amounts of damage in most situations. Their mobility is lower than most of the other champions but getting in an early 1v1 fight against them may not end well for you.

Garen

Garen is one of the best starting champions for beginners, as his kit is pretty easy to use and master. He is a popular pick, but only in certain ranks.  He is not that good in high elo as other top laners dominate him but in the lower elo, the tables are turned in his favor.

Difficulty: Easy

Sion

One of the most powerful tank champions in the game and in this fotm tier list, Sion is a great champion to master for top lane players. In our current fotm League of Legends, Sion is relatively harder to master than most champions, but not the hardest. His entire kit is based on disrupting enemy movement and can be an absolutely disgusting champion to play against. His most effective build is the full tank one.

Difficulty: Medium

Fiora

Fiora is one of the most powerful duelist champions for top laners. Her ability to 1v1 anyone and at the same time negate any form of damage using her ‘W’ ability is especially tilting when you’re playing against her. Fiona’s early game is pretty weak however, once she builds her first item, beating her in a 1v1 is an especially tough task.

Difficulty: Medium

Darius

Darius is not particularly a commonly played champion, however, he is one of the most brutal top laners in the current meta. His ability to dominate his lane is unparalleled. If you over-extend even a little against a good enough Darius, he can potentially take away your relevancy for the entire game by destroying your farm permanently. Darius is an absolute punishment for players who fail to play with proper discipline.

Difficulty: Easy

Gangplank

Another S-Tier top laner is Gangplank, who is one of the strongest late-game champions in the current meta. His early game is rather weak, but the idea is to play passive and just earn enough coins to build up his items. He is a very disliked agent in low elo because of how easy it is for him to abuse his kit against people without discipline.

Difficulty: Hard

Aatrox

Aatrox is the final S-tier top laner we will be discussing on this fotm tier list. The champion was originally an F-tier champion and remained at that rank for a very long time. Recent changes, however, have made him considerably more powerful. He avoids class weaknesses and deals an insane amount of damage while also healing. He fits in the Juggernaut class without most of the class drawbacks.

Difficulty: Hard

Junglers

The junlgers are one of the most key players throughout the game. If you’re stuck with a bad jungler, your chances of winning are very very slim. The champions in this fotm tier list who play in and out of the jungle part of the map are called the junglers. They have the important task of ganking other lanes as well as completing neutral objectives.

Kayn

Kayn is one of the most broken agents of this patch. He is definitely one of the best, if not the best jungler in our fotm League of legends tier list. His kit makes him an unconventional pick for the jungler role. The only thing you have to keep in mind when playing Kayn is the coordination between his utility and forms. Kayn is definitely one of the strongest champions late-game, who also has a pretty nice early game.

Difficulty: Medium

Viego

Viego is one of the best junglers as well as top laners because of his devastating kit. He has the ability to deal a lot of damage and also maintain control in his lane. If he is played as a jungle his ability to shut down the enemy jungler or completely wreck the enemy farm in any lane is a solid reason for why he is on the S-tier in this fotm league of the legends tier list. Viego’s win rate has increased to a 49% in this patch because of the recent buffs to his kit.

Difficulty: Medium

Graves

Graves is a very fast-paced and aggressive jungler. If you want to impact the game quickly and end the game swiftly, then Graves is the best champion for you. His kit deals AoE damage, which is very good for clearing out camps in the jungle. With Graves, you need to play pretty aggressively as he becomes weaker as the game progresses.

Difficulty: Medium

ADC

ADC champions are most commonly played in the bot lane with the help of a support champion. The champions in this fotm tier list who are extremely good at dealing damage in all states of the match are ADC champs. These champs have the role of carrying the late game with their lethal and destructive abilities.

Jinx

The face of the game and an absolute fan favorite, Jinx, is possibly the best ADC in this fotm tier list. Her buff soon after Arcane, she grew to be one of the best picks for bot lane carry. The Zaunite with her destructive Aoe kit is definitely a strong pick for fast pushing lanes. Jinx also has the ability to take down turrets very quickly making it super easy to dominate a lane. She has a pick rate of 20% which is very high for ADC carriers.

Difficulty: Easy

Xayah

Xayah is one of the best ADCs if you’re looking to win 1v1 fights. She is one of the more difficult champions to play however, her mid to late game is very strong compared to some other ADCs. She has a win rate of 51% which is pretty decent for ADC carry’s. Xayah also has great team fight potential if played correctly as her ultimate can help her avoid enemy target attacks.

Difficulty: High

Support

These champions are played generally at the bottom lane of the map. They have very good crowd control and many status-based abilities. The champions in this fotm tier list who help their ADCs farm more effectively while also setting them up for kills are the support champions.

Nautilus

Nautilus is a very heavy tank champion in this fotm League of legends tier list. His early game is extremely strong and can help his ADC carry farm kills very early, boosting their farm. Nautilus’s late game is significantly weaker, which is why you need to either halt the enemy’s farm or help feed your ADC as much as you can.

Difficulty: Medium

Yumi

Yumi is an exceptional support champion because of her abilities at any stage of the game. She has a pretty decent early game and a devastating late game. Her healing and shielding are incredibly strong at all stages in the game. Her mana usage was nerfed in the recent patches but she still remains an incredible support champion. She is best with ADCs like Jhin who have high damage output.

Difficulty: Medium

Pyke

Pyke is an aggressive assassin champion who is best paired with ADCs who can farm in 1v2 situations. His incredible mobility allows him to help out bot lane along with the mid lane. He is one of the most annoying champions to play against in the current meta and in this fotm tier list, as he can quickly destroy your relevance in the game. Pyke also helps his team farm up heaps of gold, which boosts the items of his allies.

Difficulty: Hard

Soraka

Soraka is one of the most overpowered supports in the current meta. She can heal up her entire team in very little time while also having the ability to help her allies across the map with her ultimate. She is relatively easy to learn and an excellent champion to climb the elo with compared to the other champions in the fotm league of the legends tier list.

Note

The remaining champions will be listed among the A to F tiers as follows but only a few who have notable changes will be discussed. Champions will be listed on the basis of their key performance in this patch.

A Tier

A Tier Image
Image referencing A-Tier Champions

This tier contains the champions who are among the more powerful characters in this fotm tier list. These champions fall short of the S-tier due to some weaknesses they may possess or simply because they are too difficult to play as effectively as the S-tier champions but still maintain the competitive edge. These champions are a general pick for someone simply for trying something new or for someone learning many roles to climb the elo ladder.

Mid-Laners

The champions who will be playing in the mid-lane of the game map are included in this section. The champions in the fotm tier list who can hold their own in an outnumbered match along with farming sufficiently are usually played as mid-laners. Most of these champions have good mobility and a very strong influence throughout the match on the tempo of the fights.

Yone

Yone has one of the highest pick and ban rates this season. His kit is extremely good and so is his movement throughout the game. If you see a Yone in the enemy team, your best hope is to not let him build up his items. He has extremely good crowd control and can solo carry the late game (3 items built) by 3-4 hitting the most vulnerable enemy campions.

Difficulty: Medium

Katarina

Katarina is one of the hardest champions to effectively duel if you don’t know her kit pretty well. Her kit is one of the hardest to master compared to other champion’s kits in this fotm league of the legends tier list. She is unmatched in her combination of abilities making it extremely hard to predict her moves if she is in the hands of a proper master of her kit. She can potentially one-shot enemies in the late game if allowed to build up her items making her one of the deadliest mid -laners.

Difficulty: High

Fizz

Fizz possesses one of the interesting kits in the game. Her playstyle mainly revolves around misdirection and punishing enemies if they fall for the baits. She is a difficult champion to master for anyone who is new too lol but is only moderately difficult for more seasoned players in the game.

Difficulty: Medium

Sylas

A good Sylas is one of the most annoying things a player might experience in the game. As a Sylas, it’s important for you to max out your ‘w’ so you can potentially take on outnumbered duels and still survive. A key thing for a Sylas player is to decide which ultimate you want to steal. If your early game as Sylas goes well, you will breeze through the late-game stages.

Difficulty: Easy

Lux

Lux is one of the most overpowered lane bullies in this fotm tier list as it is extremely easy for her to halt her enemies farm at the same time farm up herself. She is one of the beginner champions and possibly the best beginner mid-laner as her kit is very easy to learn and master. The mid-game stage is where you get the chance to shine as Lux and completely ruin the enemy champions’ builds. She would potentially be S-tier in a fotm solo q tier list due to her flexible roles.

Difficulty: Easy

Malzahar

Malzahar is one of the most obnoxious mid-laners to be matched up against. His passive spell shield and silencing abilities make him one of the strongest laners in the current meta. He has a very simple kit that is not hard to learn and remains to be one of the best champions to climb the elo with.

Difficulty: Easy

Top-Laners

Champions who are played in the Top lane of the map are known as top-laners. These fotm tier list champions are known for being very tanky and extremely good at taking large amounts of damage in most situations. Their mobility is lower than most of the other champions but getting in an early 1v1 fight against them may not end well for you.

Sett

Sett is one of the most over-powered champions in the current meta and in this Fotm league of legends tier list. His early game is unmatched in the entire champion pool. The only thing holding him back from S-tier is his weakness to be shut down with no recovery. He can easily win 1v1 early duels against most top laners and farm up relatively fast. He has a very basic and easy kit but one of the most versatile ones making him a great candidate for a main champion.

Difficulty: Easy

Jax

Jax when viewed from a general point of view doesn’t come off as a strong champion in this fotm tier list but that is incorrect. The reason why Jax is an A-tier top laner is because of his incredibly low CD kit. He becomes really powerful mid-late game making it impossible to get away from him thanks to his passive skills. Jax can potentially punish unaware top-laners early game by destroying the enemy’s farm.

Difficulty: Medium

Riven

Riven is one of the few champions who can potentially dominate the early game as a top-laner and as a jungler. Her incredible mobility matched with her abilities makes her a suitable champion for effective ganks to punish over-extended enemies in her lane. Riven fails to be in a higher tier as her crowd control ability is very poor compared to other top lane champions.

Difficulty: Medium

Mordekaiser

Mordekaiser is a very powerful champion to master if you’re looking to solo queue in your elo climb. In low elo, he has one of the highest pick rates compared to the other top lane champions in this fotm tier list. He is a very versatile champion with multiple ways to build him up, either as a heavy tank or even as a strong damage champion.

Difficulty: Hard

Teemo

Teemo is one of the most dangerous champions in the entire champion pool. If allowed to farm up he can take out enemy champions extremely fast. His kit is one of the most annoying kits to deal with as an enemy. Teemo can poison, silence, blind, or even destroy your entire team with his poison mushrooms. Once leveled up enough it is extremely difficult to deal with Teemo as he is one of the fastest champions in this Fotm league of the legends tier list.

Difficulty: Easy

Junglers

The junlgers are one of the most key players throughout the game. If you’re stuck with a bad jungler, your chances of winning are very very slim. The champions in this fotm tier list who play in and out of the jungle part of the map are called the junglers. They have the important task of ganking other lanes as well as completing neutral objectives.

Master Yi

Master Yi is one of the most popular champions in the entire champion pool. He is probably the best low elo jungler and that’s why he is at the A-tier instead of the S-tier. His kit allows him to solo carry entire games and help each and every lane. His kit is relatively easy to learn and master. Yi is one of the best champions if you plan on solo queueing out of low elo.

Difficulty: Easy

Shaco

Shaco is one of the worst early-game junglers but one of the best late-game junglers. He is a moderately difficult champion to master in this fotm tier list but his kit allows him to clear his jungle relatively fast compared to some other junglers. There are better options for a jungler but if you can understand his kit and playstyle he is definitely a great champion to climb the elo with.

Difficulty: Hard

Volibear

Volibear has been changed a lot recently which ultimately made him one of the best junglers to solo carry with. His kit is extremely powerful and only scales up as the game progresses. He serves as a great gank champion because of his ability to soak up a lot of damage and at the same time increase his attack speed and damage. He has both AoE and single target attacks making him a great champion for farming jungles.

Difficulty: Medium

Kha’Zix

Kha’Zix is a great pick for anyone looking to solo carry through entire games. He is a very popular champion in solo queue and in pro play because of his dueling potential and his ability to outplay his enemies constantly.

Difficulty: Medium

Diana

Diana is one of the stronger junglers in this fotm tier list. Her movement allows her to be a very strong laner or a jungle. Her rework in 2020 made her a viable A-tier champion because of her ability buff. She adopts the role of an assassin and remains a key component throughout the game thanks to her aggressive playstyle.

Difficulty: Easy

ADC

ADC champions are most commonly played in the bot lane with the help of a support champion. The champions in this fotm tier list who are extremely good at dealing damage in all states of the match are ADC champs. These champs have the role of carrying the late game with their lethal and destructive abilities.

Jhin

Jhin is one of the most popular League champions because of his perfect design. Everything about the character screams perfection to the players but unfortunately, his current kit fails to elevate him to S-Tier. His crit damage makes him a very destructive ADC carry especially in the late game.

Difficulty: Medium

Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune is among the most popular ADC champions in both high and low elo. She is a very strong lane bully and remains destructive through all stages of the game. Her movement speed remains a nuisance for enemy champions as it is very hard to trade her.

Difficulty: Easy

Samira

Samira is a very weak champion early game but becomes just as deadly as the game progresses. Her kit allows her to deal a lot of damage from long range while also allowing her to match up with enemies within a close range too. She is pretty support dependant so solo queueing with her may not be as successful.

Difficulty: Hard

Lucian

Lucian is one of the few champions in this fotm tier list who remains strong throughout the game in every stage. He is seen mostly as a counter pick against weak ADCs but still has great solo queue potential among the other ADC carry’s in this fotm league of the legends tier list.

Difficulty: Medium

Support

These champions are played generally at the bottom lane of the map. They have very good crowd control and many status-based abilities. The champions in this fotm tier list who help their ADCs farm more effectively while also setting them up for kills are the support champions.

Lux

Lux has been discussed as an A-tier Midlaner previously but also qualifies as a great support champion. Her ability to help her ADC farm kills is immense. Not only can she destroy the enemy team’s farm but also has great trade potential if her ADC is outmatched.

Difficulty: Easy

Lulu

Lulu is a great support champion because of her constant abilities. She can shield as well as boost her ADC’s stats while also helping in the engagement against enemy champions. She has great crowd control along with immense poke making her a very annoying champion to play against.

Difficulty: Medium

Blitzcrank

Blitzcrank is one of the most overpowered supports in the current meta and in this fotm tier list. His ability to do burst damage at the early stages of the game is very dangerous for enemy champions. Just one successful grab with his Rocket Grab can completely shift the pace and tempo of the game.

Difficulty: Medium

Senna

Senna fits extremely well in this meta because of her ability to survive duels and shut down trade opportunities. She is a very comfortable pick compared to the other champion in this fotm league of the legends tier list. Her low cooldown heals and her ability to avoid being targeted is also very annoying to deal with.

Difficulty: Medium

B Tier

Fotm B-Tier
Image referencing B-Tier Champions

In the B-tier of this fotm tier list, we will be discussing the average champions in the current meta. These champions have alternate better options and are not ideal picks for climbing unless you have a specific build or playstyle in mind for them. Fotm meaning flavor of the month is the major assessment factor when placing these champions in this tier.

Mid-Laners

The champions who will be playing in the mid-lane of the game map are included in this section. The champions in the fotm tier list who can hold their own in an outnumbered match along with farming sufficiently are usually played as mid-laners. Most of these champions have good mobility and a very strong influence throughout the match on the tempo of the fights.

Qiyana

Qiyana is a relatively weak pick for mid-laners as she is in need of some champion buffs to be viable in the current meta. The only thing protecting her from the C-tier is her early game capability. Her kit allows for a very strong early game aggression to halt any enemy champion farm.

Difficulty: High

Anivia

Anivia is a very weak pick in the current meta as many champions can easily counter her. Her mid-game is relatively strong because of her crowd control capability. In the early and late-game stages, Anivia is pretty squishy and easy to defeat in duels.

Difficulty: Medium

Neeko

Neeko is a decent mid-lane champion but only against very specific playstyles. Her kit allows her to punish squishy junglers if they gank or to stop over-aggression in her lane. She experienced heavy nerfs which have damaged her viability in the current meta.

Difficulty: Easy

Ekko

Ekko is another popular champion in this fotm tier list thanks to the Arcane fame. He is a very decent pick for mid-lane because of his unique playstyle. He does have the highest pick rate but due to his difficulty, he is a very difficult champion to play in the current meta successfully.

Difficulty: Hard

Top-Laners

Champions who are played in the Top lane of the map are known as top-laners. These fotm  tier list champions are known for being very tanky and extremely good at taking large amounts of damage in most situations. Their mobility is lower than most of the other champions but getting in an early 1v1 fight against them may not end well for you.

Malphite

Malphite is among the weaker top laners. There are many better options when it comes to the top lane. The reason why Malphite is among the B-Tier of this fotm league of legends tier list is because of his one-trick plays. Malphite only thrives in one rank and that is silver.

Difficulty: Easy

Kayle

Kayle pre-buff was a normal C-Tier – D-Tier champion but her recent reworks have placed her among the B-Tier champions of this fotm tier list as she acts as an excellent counter to some S-tier or A-Tier champions. She has a very high damage output and scales immensely as the game progresses.

Difficulty: Hard

Yone

Yone is a champion who has been discussed before. Along with being one of the best mid-laners, Yone serves as a pretty decent top laner. Yone’s ability to farm alongside his disruptive play-style is grounds for a decent top laner.

Difficulty: Easy

Dr. Mundo

Dr. Mundo is one of the average top laners. Most of his picks are from favorites or from players trying something new. Dr. Mundo is by no means a weak champion. He has great potential to win duels and if allowed to farm, is very tough to stop. He is a good choice against champions that deals heavy magic damage.

Difficulty: Medium

Irelia

Irelia is again a very specific pick for the top lane. In many of the low elo players’ opinions, Irelia is a very broken champion but that statement is not true. Irelia has a very good late game if she is allowed to build properly. Irelia is also one of the more difficult champions to use which makes her harder to predict when you’re the enemy.

Difficulty: Medium

Junglers

The junlgers are one of the most key players throughout the game. If you’re stuck with a bad jungler, your chances of winning are very very slim. The champions in this fotm tier list who play in and out of the jungle part of the map are called the junglers. They have the important task of ganking other lanes as well as completing neutral objectives.

Warwick

Warick is one of the most commonly picked jungles as he is very easy to smurf within low elo. Warwick has a very strong early game which allows him to disrupt the tempo of the game at the start. He has a relatively easy kit making him a viable jungler for beginners. He may be easy to play but is very hard to master.

Difficulty: Easy

Ekko

Ekko is another champion that we have discussed before in this fotm tier list. He is a weaker choice in the current meta but due to his difficulty level, you don’t see him a lot in low elo, especially in this meta. His kit is unique when it comes to the jungle playstyle as he can potentially farm his jungle as well as disrupt the enemy junglers farm by quite a lot.

Difficulty: Hard

Vi

Vi is also among the champions in this FOTM league of legends tier list who experienced the Arcane buff. She is a very decent choice as a jungler in the current meta due to her ganking potential. When played properly she can be a very difficult champion to deal with.

Difficulty: Easy

Trundle

Trundle the frost troll is a very good choice for jungler who love to gank. He is mostly an early-game player but is also a potential candidate for a late-game carry. He is good at having better numbers when it comes to other champions.

Difficulty: Medium

Evelynn

Evelyn is one of the best assassins in the current meta. Her reason for being in the B-tier is due to her overall score that comes with her statistics. She has a very good kit but is very unforgiving with any mistakes you may make with her. She can potentially lose all her relevance in a game if you make 1-2 mistakes with her in key duels.

Difficulty: Hard

ADC

ADC champions are most commonly played in the bot lane with the help of a support champion. The champions in this fotm tier list who are extremely good at dealing damage in all states of the match are ADC champs. These champs have the role of carrying the late game with their lethal and destructive abilities.

Caitlyn

Caitlyn is again of the champions in this form league of legends tier list that was buffed after Arcane aired. In the current meta, she is a devastating lane bully but has a very weak mid-game. She has the longest ranged attacks in the entire game making her a very safe ADC to play. She relies on staying behind her team and poking the enemies down to low health.

Difficulty: Easy

Ashe

Ashe is one of the most fun champions to start the game with. Her kit is very attractive for beginners and serves as a great ADC champion. She relies heavily on synergy with teammates which is why she is in the lower tiers. If you are a new player looking to learn the game then you definitely can’t go wrong with Ashe.

Difficulty: Easy

Kai’Sa

Kai’Sa is one of the more decent ADC picks if you’re looking for a challenging game. Her ability to punish isolated champions is very powerful. She is one of the most flexible champions in this fotm tier list. You need to be careful as to how you build her because an incorrect build can be severely punished by the enemies.

Difficulty: Medium

Support

These champions are played generally at the bottom lane of the map. They have very good crowd control and many status-based abilities. The champions in this fotm tier list who help their ADCs farm more effectively while also setting them up for kills are the support champions.

Seraphine

Seraphine is one the easiest champions to play in the entire game. The beautiful singer has a kit that is straightforward and easy to play. She has great Aoe capability and amazing crowd control. Her kit isn’t as good as some of the other supports which is why she is in this tier.

Difficulty: Easy

Xerath

Xerath is a very decent support champion. He has the capability to carry through the entire game. The problem with Xerath is his skill. A skillful Xerath will land all his shots and carry the entire game and a bad one will only hinder his teammates.

Difficulty: Medium

Thresh

Thresh is one of the most versatile champions in the game and in this fotm tier list. This versatility does come at a cost which is that he executes are among the hardest to perform successfully. Thresh is definitely one of the fan favorites making him a very common pick in most situations.

Difficulty: Medium

Morgana

Morgana is one of the most devastating supports because of her CC abilities. In this fotm league of the legends tier list, Morgana is one of the best champions to execute combos with. The sad part about his champion is that Morgana is one of the most banned champions in the current meta. If you don’t ban lux you will likely ban a Morgana or a Pyke.

Difficulty: Easy

C Tier

FOTM C-Tier
Image referencing C-Tier Champions

The C-tier is known to contain items or entities that are slightly below average. They are in no way a pick you should opt for if you’re trying to win effectively and with ease. Playing most of these champions included in the fotm tier list comes down to your playstyle and how risky you want your games to be.

Mid-Laners

The champions who will be playing in the mid lane of the game map are included in this section. The champions in the fotm tier list who can hold their own in an outnumbered match along with farming sufficiently are usually played as mid-laners. Most of these champions have good mobility and a very strong influence throughout the match on the tempo of the fights.

Brand

The brand is one of the starting champions in the game. He is best used as a support champion because he barely needs to have any items to do odd amounts of poke damage. Playing him on mid may not be an ideal pick as he will be scaled fairly quickly.

Difficulty: Easy

Galio

Galio used to be one of the strongest counter picks in the mid-lane but due to recent meta changes, he has lost most of his relevance in terms of team play. He is one of those champions that someone who mains Galio will be able to dominate with but the same cant be said for the other players using him.

Difficulty: Medium

Swain

Swain is a must-pick for his mains as he has a very unique playstyle compared to the other champion in this fotm tier list. He has a huge mid-game spike in which he can completely change the tempo of the game but has a relatively weak late game. His early game is decent but only good in very specific situations.

Difficulty: Easy

Top-Laners

Champions who are played in the Top lane of the map are known as top-laners. These fotm tier list champions are known for being very tanky and extremely good at taking large amounts of damage in most situations. Their mobility is lower than most of the other champions but getting in an early 1v1 fight against them may not end well for you.

Skarner

Skarner is mostly a jungle pick but due to his insanely versatile kit. In older patches, he is one of the strongest picks for jungler but in the current meta, there are better and safer options. His ability usage can potentially make him a good top laner but adapting to that role is not something every player can do with this champion.

Difficulty: Medium

Akali

Akali is one of the strongest picks for mid-lanes but is a viable pick for top lane due to her versatile kit. It is definitely not a good idea to play her top unless you know what you’re doing or if you’re simply filling in and don’t know how to play any other top lane viable champions.

Difficulty: Easy

Gwen

Gwen is a very good pick for toplane if you’re always gonna be in a 1v1 situation. Her ability to dominate in 1v1 short-range fights is very good which works out most of the time in top lanes. She is in the C-tier simply because of her horrible CC score and because of her ability to be shut down fairly quickly.

Difficulty: Hard

Junglers

The junlgers are one of the most key players throughout the game. If you’re stuck with a bad jungler, your chances of winning are very very slim. The champions in this fotm tier list who play in and out of the jungle part of the map are called the junglers. They have the important task of ganking other lanes as well as completing neutral objectives.

Talon

Talon’s kit would make him an excellent jungler because of his AoE as well as single-target damaging abilities paired up with his mobility. He doesn’t serve as one of the best junglers because he can be shut down very easily due to him failing to stay healthy most of the time during his farm.

Difficulty: Easy

Ivern

Ivern is a relatively weak pick for the jungle role because he is very easy to get rid of and very quickly which destroys his relevance throughout most of the game. His only strength as a jungler is his speed. He can clear his jungle very quickly and move quickly for potential ganks.

Difficulty: Hard

Nunu

Nunu is only a good jungler pick if you’re not looking for effective ganks but for neutral objectives and halting the enemy junglers farm. He has a good kit for stealing objectives and is very effective at stealing enemy jungle creeps.

Difficulty: Medium

ADC

ADC champions are most commonly played in the bot lane with the help of a support champion. The champions in this fotm tier list who are extremely good at dealing damage in all states of the match are ADC champs. These champs have the role of carrying the late game with their lethal and destructive abilities.

Ziggs

Ziggs used to be one of the best ADC carriers but in the recent meta, he has taken a quick dive under. There are many safer picks when it comes to ADC carry’s. He is one of the most fun champions to play casually but not an ideal pick for climbing elo.

Difficulty: Medium

Zeri

Zeri was a very powerful champion during her early release but was adjusted quite heavily making her a good pick for casual games but not an ideal choice for climbing elo. She does scale well with AP and that’s why is great in a team with only AD champions.

Difficulty: Medium

Tristana

Tristana is one of the best champions for new league players compared to other champions in this fotm tier list. She is not a good pick for players in games with more experienced players but still has the potential to make very game-changing plays.

Difficulty: Easy

Support

These champions are played generally at the bottom lane of the map. They have very good crowd control and many status-based abilities. The champions in this fotm tier list who help their ADCs farm more effectively while also setting them up for kills are the support champions.

Neeko

Neeko is a very viable champion if used as a support champion however she lacks synergy with many of the commonly picked ADC champions. She is very good at poking enemies but when it comes to synergized plays with her ADC carry.

Difficulty: Easy

Ashe

Ashe is one of the best starting champions as discussed before. Using her as support is great for poking enemies however it is very risky. Most supports can take a decent amount of damage which is not the case with Ashe. However, if you want to go for a disruptive aggressive play then Ashe might be the support for you.

Difficulty: Easy

Vel’Koz

Vel’Koz is the best champion of its playstyle being ranged artillery. He was originally intended as mid laner but Is still viable for support plays. His versatile kit allows him to deal true damage which maximizes the supports poke ability.

Difficulty: Hard

D Tier

LoL FOTM D-Tier
Image referencing D-Tier Champions

Normally D-tier contains the lower viable entities but in the case of our FOTM league of legends tier list, the D-tier will contain the worst picks of a specific lane. Of course, you can still play these champions which are included in the fotm tier list in these lanes but chances are, you’re not gonna have a good time.

Mid-Laners

The champions who will be playing in the mid lane of the game map are included in this section. The champions in the fotm tier list who can hold their own in an outnumbered match along with farming sufficiently are usually played as mid-laners. Most of these champions have good mobility and a very strong influence throughout the match on the tempo of the fights.

Ryze

Ryze is one of the most squishy champions in the mid-lane. He is extremely mana hungry and lacks mobility making him one of the worst mid-lane picks of this season. He does have a nice late-game spike but still is bad compared to some of the other mid-laners.

Difficulty: Medium

Gangplank

Gangplank is a very viable top laner but in mid he just fails to shine as brightly as he can. He loses his ability to bull his lane and gain that upper edge at the early stages of the game. His mobility is also a very bad attribute for a mid-laner.

Difficulty: Hard

Top-Laners

Champions who are played in the Top lane of the map are known as top-laners. These fotm tier list champions are known for being very tanky and extremely good at taking large amounts of damage in most situations. Their mobility is lower than most of the other champions but getting in an early 1v1 fight against them may not end well for you.

Sylas

Sylas is very dependant on his early game which contradicts the top laner play style. He can potentially have a very strong mid-game but only if he has a very good early game which he is denied when played in the top lane.

Difficulty: Medium

Jayce

Jayce is also one of the champions who benefited from the arcane buff. He is one of the viable choices for top laners but he has an extremely unique playstyle which unfortunately does not perform well in this current meta because he does not have an associated mythic item.

Difficulty: Hard

Junglers

The junlgers are one of the most key players throughout the game. If you’re stuck with a bad jungler, your chances of winning are very very slim. The champions in this fotm tier list who play in and out of the jungle part of the map are called the junglers. They have the important task of ganking other lanes as well as completing neutral objectives.

Qiyana

Qiyana is one of the worst junglers in the current meta because she can be easily predicted which makes ganking extremely difficult. She wasn’t designed as jungler but she can assume the role just not well.

Difficulty: Hard

Gwen

Gwen is a champion that has been discussed before as a top laner however in this fotm tier list, she underperforms immensely compared to the other Junglers. Her being a viable top laner is why her kit is compatible with a jungler role.

Difficulty: Hard

ADC

ADC champions are most commonly played in the bot lane with the help of a support champion. The champions in this fotm tier list who are extremely good at dealing damage in all states of the match are ADC champs. These champs have the role of carrying the late game with their lethal and destructive abilities.

Kalista

Kalista is one of the worst ADCs in the current meta because she does not do nearly enough damage to be viable compared to the other champions in this fotm tier list. She is one of the most support-dependent champions in the entire fotm solo q tier list.  She is decent at clearing lane waves which is her only notable strength.

Difficulty: Hard

Aphelios

Aphelios is a champion that was designed to be an ADC carry but underperforms quite heavily in the current meta. Although in this fotm tier list, he is a great mid-game champion but in the solo queue, he is extremely hard to play.

Difficulty: Hard

Support

These champions are played generally at the bottom lane of the map. They have very good crowd control and many status-based abilities. The champions in this fotm tier list who help their ADCs farm more effectively while also setting them up for kills are the support champions.

Aniviva

Aniviva is good support but horrible in solo queue. She has great CC ability along with defensive support but Anviva can easily be targeted and shut down. Another problem with Anviva is that she only works with very few ADC champions.

Difficulty: Hard

Heimerdinger

Another champion with Arcane fame, Heimerdinger is one of the worst picks for support. He is great for poke damage but is only viable early game and quickly loses relevance in the game. Heimerdinger mains are the only people who can effectively use this champion as support.

Difficulty: Hard

Ending notes

This fotm tier list is based on champion scores and public opinion which may be in conflict with your views. This tier list can, of course, change very quickly with just one patch but let us stay hopeful that nothing is broken too heavily in the coming patches. Hopefully, this list covers enough information to help you decide which champions you want to learn in this season and while they’re still good.
