The definition of a bruiser:

- Often a tanky champion who can absorb a lot of punishment but also dish out a lot of damage.

- A champion with high survivability who's also a melee champion. (Nidalee is the exception as she's hybrid)

- Bruisers often solo top as they have high survivability and top lane is the easiest lane to die in. These champions can also be played middle lane or even sent to 2 v 1 bot when running different strategies but predominantly they will be top lane.

- Champions like Wukong, Talon and a few others can be played mid lane and completely counter a lot of enemy AP carries. Bruisers can be played mid from time to time and should be considered when looking at the bruiser tier list.

Don't see a champion listed in the tier list who you consider a good competitive bruiser? It's probably because I don't and other competitive teams don't value them as competitive picks. Want to raise an argument for why a certain champion should be considered for the competitive list just post below and let me know why in a constructive way!

    I haven't really understood if you plan on adding stuff to each of your new lists (I saw something in a previous post about the tiers being released in the next days while you already published them all, gj).

    Will you be adding information of why have you been moving a champion in the tier?
    Of course, having changed the pattern of the tiers, this is a fresh start, and there is no meta-tier list before this, but I really liked the comments each patch of Why a champion became stronger or weaker in your opinion, or how much the patch changed it. Mid ELO players like me learn some thing that way, more than just looking at a plain list, being at my ELO more important to know how to play a champ rather than the champ being strong itself.

    Oh, and if you are going to post changes to the champ I would have a suggestion if you don't mind. As I guess according to your lolpro.com guide on support Yorick you would recommend him against a enemy support with no heals, as far as top lane champs are concerned, it would be nice if you would recommend sometimes which champ it counters.
    E.g. if as always Morde es #1, a lot of top lane players will have issues playing against morde. Let's say Lee Sin is a hard counter to Morde, so goes up in your tier list. Just mention that.

    Tnx, and again, nice job with this, the integration into curse and lolpro helps out.

    [ I just wanted to say that Morde es #1, if somebody wants a better example: OP Shen rework, kennen counters shen, rise in popularity of kennen top]
