League of Legends (LoL), commonly referred to as League, is a 2009 multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games. Inspired by Defense of the Ancients, a custom map for Warcraft III, Riot's founders sought to develop a stand-alone game in the same genre. Since its release in October 2009, the game has been free-to-play and is monetized through purchasable character customization. The game is available for Microsoft Windows and macOS. League of Legends is an ever-changing MOBA with tons of regular changes that can dictate how the game is being played. With that in mind, there have always been certain champions that have achieved the ‘OP’ tag by the player base in almost every update. However, even these kinds of champions witness downfalls in pick rate as the updates start to stack up.
For information, let us tell you that with the new changes, keeping track of the strengths and weaknesses of champions can be a bit busy especially for the solo lane. So today, we're going to explore the top lane changes and meta shifts brought about by Patch 12.2. So without further ado, jump straight to our tier list for LOL.
League of Legends Patch 12.2 Top Lane Tier List (Ranked)
We’ve spent some time, taken a look at the pro scene, and have devised the best champions to play in League of Legends for Patch 12.2 Here are the top lane tier picks for League of Legends Patch 12.2.
These champions are currently very strong picks for laning which also makes them a viable option to climb solo queue with. Not only are their kits extremely unbalanced right now but they can also have high potential to snowball and carry games.
These are the champions that can perform well in the lane and can capitalize on any advantage they can get no matter how small it is. These champions can also become the cornerstone of a team and carry them to victory.
These champions are constant performers and can carry their team to victory if played properly. The champions in this tier are constant meta picks that are powerful enough to perform as needed.
These are the champions that are not very strong in the current meta but still continue to be playable in most top lane matchups. Their team synergies are not the best but they can still be viable in the right hands.
The champions in this tier category haven’t been able to find their place in the current meta but are still playable in the top lane. The new season hasn’t been very generous to them but hey, they can still go wild in low elo.
These champions are currently terrible to play in the top lane as their inherent stats/kits do not let them win most of the matchups in Top Lane. On the off chance, they do win a matchup, they are still unable to have a strong impact on the actual game state. So it would be wise not to pick them unless you’re a fan of challenges.
