Many top laners were nerfed this time around, along with items that are core to some champions, so this tier list will take into consideration the changes and how it has affected the win rate and overall performance from these champions.
Garen received a buff this patch, and he along with most juggernauts are doing well in terms of win-rate despite multiple matches being played. Duelists like Fiora and Riven are performing great recently, and their kit comes in handy when dealing with roaming assassins.
- Shen (changed)
The damage in Sett's W, as well as his AD ratio, has gone up this patch, while Shen's shield value increased. Given these buffs, and how they have reflected in their gameplay thus far, these tanks will be placed in the A tier. Overall, champions that have large health pools even without Deadman's Plate are efficient during this patch.
This category includes skirmishers like Gwen and Yasuo who can take on specific opponents in this lane, but are great as a choice to counter a champion. Champions who work in different lanes are included in this tier since being able to roam efficiently can be an advantage, although they may struggle in the early game.
- Tahm Kench
Champions in this tier have low win rates and their kits serve better in other lanes. Or, they have been nerfed to the point that there is a narrow selection of enemy champions they are good against in matchups.
