League of Legends: Season 11
LoL Tier List: The best champions for Patch 11.16

Wondering what are the best champions to play following the release of League of Legends Patch 11.16? Our guide has you covered for all positions, whether you're looking for the best top, jungle, mid, ADC or support.

LoL Tier List: The best champions for Patch 11.16

Whether you are new to League of Legends or a veteran, it will become apparent to you that some champions are stronger than others. Or, at least they are during one or more patches.

Each update cycle brings its share of buffs and nerfs aimed at balancing the meta, making some champions the kings of their role; while others are forgotten, sometimes for years.

Of course, any League of Legends champion is playable to some extent, but some have much higher win rates -- either because they have recently been buffed, or because that they are more accessible to play for the majority of players.

Identifying which champion currently dominates the meta in their position is not always easy, especially since different builds and runes can drastically influence the effectiveness of a pick. What works for professional players is not necessarily a good choice for players wanting to move up the rankings...

For this reason, we offer you this tier list for the current patch, the objective of which is to rank the best champions of each meta by role. Whether you are a support, auto-filled in the jungle, or just want to find out which picks are the most effective at the moment, this article is for you.
