League of Legends Patch 13.12 Solo Queue Tier List Update
The support meta has experienced significant changes in this patch, with enchanters losing their dominance and melee supports rising in popularity. Additionally, the ADC meta is evolving once again with notable changes. In this comprehensive update on the solo queue tier list, we'll discuss the shifts in the meta, analyze data from Challenger players, and provide insights on the best champions for climbing in each role.
↖ Top Lane
- Rek'Sai: Rek'Sai has gained attention as a top lane champion in recent times, especially against melee picks like Sett, Aatrox, Sion, and Riven. With buffs to her cooldowns and passive sustain, Rek'Sai performs well in solo queue. Her two-item core consists of Stridebreaker and Hullbreaker, providing incredible split push and dive power. Rek'Sai earns a place in our Top Lane S-tier for Patch 13.12.
- Ivern: While more commonly played in the jungle, Ivern is also drawing attention as a top lane pick. He performs exceptionally well against champions like Jax, Darius, and Sett. In the top lane, Ivern focuses on a full AP build, rushing Rylai's, followed by Nashor's Tooth and Liandry's Anguish. With Daisy's presence, Ivern gains incredible dueling power. Ivern secures a spot in our Top Lane A-tier.
- Jax and Malphite: Jax and Malphite remain strong picks in the top lane and retain their positions in the OP-tier. Gragas, on the other hand, has fallen further down the tier list due to the nerfs affecting him more in lane than in the jungle.
- Rek'Sai and Ivern: Rek'Sai and Ivern continue to dominate the jungle meta in Patch 13.12, making them top-tier picks for climbing the ranks. Their playstyles suit heavy ganking and supportive roles, respectively.
- Kha'Zix: Despite the previous drop to Tier A, Kha'Zix makes a comeback in Patch 13.12, earning a place in the S-tier. The nerfs haven't affected him as negatively as expected, solidifying his position as a top-tier assassin jungler.
- Other Strong Picks: Jarvan IV, Evelynn, Rengar, Kindred, and Hecarim also maintain strong positions in the current jungle meta.
↖ Mid Lane
- Pre-Patch Premier Picks: Champions like Neeko, Ahri, and Annie continue to dominate the mid lane and remain in the OP-tier.
- Shiv Builds: With the buff to Statikk Shiv, champions like Zoe, Akali, and LeBlanc have found success with the item as a rush option. This unexpected build allows for empowered auto-attack damage rather than relying solely on skill shots.
- Top Mid Lane Climbers: Malzahar, Aurelion Sol, Annie, Ahri, Neeko, and Fizz are excellent picks for climbing low ELO quickly. Yone and Yasuo, however, have become weaker due to recent item nerfs.
ADC tier list adjustments include Samira, Ashe, and Miss Fortune in the OP tier. Lethality builds have become stronger for Samira and Miss Fortune due to recent crit item nerfs. However, Lucian has dropped a tier due to his reliance on Nami, which has negatively impacted his win rate. Top ADCs for climbing low ELO are Twitch, Miss Fortune, and Ashe, with Samira, Draven, and Ezreal being strong ban choices.
In the support role, Rel has joined Blitzcrank and Janna in the OP tier, benefitting from the recent enchanters' nerfs. Melee supports like Nautilus, Leona, and Pyke are in a great spot, while Soraka has become more viable with the Moonstone buffs. Notable bans in the support role include Nautilus, Blitzcrank, and Rel, and if you prefer enchanters, Janna and Soraka are solid choices.
With the evolving meta, understanding the changes in each role is crucial for climbing the solo queue ladder. Rek'Sai and Ivern shine in the top lane, while Ivern, Rek'Sai, and Kha'Zix dominate the jungle. Mid lane remains consistent with Neeko, Ahri, and Annie leading the pack. Samira, Ashe, and Miss Fortune are the top ADCs, and Rel, Blitzcrank, and Janna excel in the support role. Consider these champions and strategies to increase your chances of success in solo queue.
