I will be doing an AMA soon (yet to be announced, but will be within the next few days) about my champions placements and reasons for placing them where I did. When I do post the AMA it will be posted on RoG and on my Facebook, and Twitter. I hope you all had a happy new year and here's to another great year on Reign of Gaming.

Be sure to ask questions and comment :D

    Ahri is still really strong, she can assassinate and her burst is pretty good too.

    Teemo T3? LOL WUT?! 

    I use Teemo, he should be T1

    He's great with AP and AS Hybrid >.>

    LOL TRYNDAMREE TERI 5 I USE HIM TIER ONE BEST CHAMP WENT 22/5 ONCE OMFG HE IS GOOD AD!!!1!1111!11!1!!!!!1!1!

    Give reasons why he should be tier one, he was just nerfed hard, his E impact damage went from 0.4 to 0.3, its scaling went down by a quarter, and his shroom damage was just changed from 200/400/600 to 200/325/450, I would say tier 3 is a good place for him right now.

    Is Mordekaiser really that bad?  I mean I know he is mostly a huehuehue pick, but some people do enjoy playing him seriously as an actual champ....

  • #257 Sahgren

    He doesn't hit hard enough given how short his range is and has 0 utility. Because of that he needs to get fed to really make an impact and not get insta-gibbed in team fights thanks to his short range, but those same problems also mean that he's pretty terrible at roaming and has difficulty killing anyone in lane without outside intervention if they know the matchup.

    He's a pretty decent lane bully and farmer, but there are other lane bullies/farmers that either don't share his crippling weaknesses or just straight up do his job better without as much need to get kills (Anivia and Vlad come to mind).

    Huh, Akali was lounging in Tier 4-5 (if I remember correctly) for the longest time. What do you think put her up to Tier 2? The penetration changes? Or was she just undervalued?

  • #261 NicknameMy

    The meta change. More and more Assasins go mid to win all lanes for the team. And Akali is one of the best assasins.

    Akali mid is horrible...

  • #344 Aergo

    Akali mid is beast.....

  • #252 zBlackBoxz

    Not sure why Draven isn't marked as God-tier.

    Must be a typo. 

  • #251 CrazedMcCrazy

    Ouch, Diana and Rengar got hit hard.

    But is Diana really that useless? I agree about Rengar, Riot killed him, hung his head on a wall and made a carpet out of his skin, but I didn't find Diana that atrocious : /. At least not in the jungle, anyway...

  • #250 WayneX

    lol@ all of those who use soloQ logic in a competitive tier list. go play some ranked teams then mby you will get it

  • #249 karlske1er

    Why is akali so high? I certainly don't agree with her above rumble

  • #262 TheSeeing

    She smoke some weed bro :)

  • #243 JH_360

    Why is Kayle suddenly in tier 4? Is it just because no one plays her?

  • #275 MICHAEL419
    One of the things I was hoping he would touch on as well
  • #240 Cheapo5020

    Shyvana, Tier 5? Below the likes of Nasus, Sion, Viktor, Sejuani, and Annie?  I'm not saying I don't like those champions or don't think they're cool, but I really find it hard to believe that Shyvana is now among the 8 least viable champions in the entire game at the competitive scene. Yea, season 3 has hit her hard, but not so hard that she's bottom of the barrel.

    I like Shyvana too and she's fun to play, but newer junglers/tops (and older ones) with more versatility and natural beef just out-perform her nowadays. She's easily kited, dead if CCed at all, and her early ganks are very readable and take only a minor sidestep to avoid. I love her but she's honestly kinda sad now =/

     Edit: It kind of reminds me of what happened to Udyr when S3 started... my favorite jungler; not nerfed or buffed at all... just forgotten D:

    Tier 5 is a bit too harsh, she is still great at what she does: counter jungling. Again these are only his opinion. Outside of the supports, I take what he says with grain and salt.

  • #267 Akuskar

    I'll agree that T5 is harsh but it shouldn't be anything above 4 imo. Counter jungling is still *somewhat* effective but it's much easier for junglers to recover from being behind in S3, what with increased XP/gold scaling and all.
