Patch 2.1B has been out for a while now, so to help with deciding who to play here is The Game Haus’s tier list. Picks will be separated by roles and ranked accordingly to their strength in the meta. Keep in mind that this tier list is not definitive. There are always different variables that go into whether a pick works best, from team composition, laning, play style, and many others. The list will start with support.

Support Tier List
Broken: Alistar, Janna
S tier: Leona, Lux,
A tier: Pantheon, Nami, Sona, Nami, Seraphine, Soraka,
B tier: Lulu, Braum, Rakan
C tier: Blitzcrank, Malphite, Annie
Alistar and Janna take over games, with both their kits excelling denying the enemy team. When opting for a more engage heavy pick, choose Alistar. He is without a doubt the strongest tank supporter in the game thanks to his heavy crowd control and tanky stats. Looking to stand far back? Play Janna since she has the best disengage abilities out of all supports, all of which do not require her to stand too close to the combat.
ADC Tier List
Broken: Kai’Sa, Jinx,
S tier: Xayah, Draven, Miss Fortune, Ashe
A tier: Ezreal, Jhin, Yasuo
B tier: Vaus, Tristana
C tier: Vayne
Kai’Sa and Jinx are in fantastic positions for Wild Rift. Be sure to abuse them while they are still busted, both offering incredible multi-target damage thanks to their synergy with Ruunan’s hurricane. Vayne, on the other hand, is performing very poorly. Only play her when super confident in skills, since she lacks wave clear and range to play safely and scale into the game.
Mid Lane Tier List
Broken: Orianna, Ahri
S tier: Katarina, Aurelion Sol
A tier: Diana, Akali, Yasuo, Twisted Fate, Zed, Ziggs, Pantheon
B tier: Fizz, Gragas, Annie, Malphite, Lux, Tristana
C tier: Singed
Orianna is super busted, offering crowd control, damage, and barriers all in one champion. Ori combos excellently with other top-tier picks, such as Wukokng and Evelynn, as her ball becomes invisible when placed onto her invisible allies. She is also easy to play with, so abuse her before she is inevitably nerfed. Katarina, on the other hand, is very mechanical, but also very rewarding. She can be countered with CC, placing her at the S tier rather than broken, but when looking to find a new main with a high skill cap, try Katarina out.
Baron Lane Tier List
Broken: Akali, Fiora
S tier: Malphite, Gragas, Darius
A tier: Camille, Wukong, Jax, Olaf, Kennen, Garen, Yasuo
B tier: Singed, Dr. Mundo
C tier: Nasus, Tryndamere
Akali is the strongest assassin in the game, sitting proudly in the broken tier for the Baron lane. Her invisibility and burst damage are near impossible to play around. Fiora’s kit is very versatile, allowing her to negate crowd control and survive in extended fights while dealing excellent damage. Avoid playing Tryndamere right now.
Jungle Tier List
Broken: Evelynn, Shyvanna
S tier: Lee Sin, Wukong, Vi
A tier: Graves, Olaf, Xin Zhao
B tier: Amumu, Pantheon, Master Yi, Camille, Dr. Mundo
C tier: Malphite, Tryndamere
Junglers heavily determine the tides of the game in patch 2.1B. Be sure to abuse the broken picks, such as Evelynn and Shyvanna, who have the ability to take over the map. Shyvanna has great wave clear speed, alongside the fastest dragon clear in the game. Evelynn has an absolutely broken invisibility to help her sneak up on unsuspecting enemies. Without any pink wards in the game, Evelynn pick really stands out.
Take all tier lists in general with a grain of salt. What is strong in the meta can sometimes be subjective, and since the game is ever-changing, there really is not any time to determine what tier list is the most “accurate.”
