LoL tier list: the best League of Legends champions for 11.23

Another update, another meta to wrap your head around - here are the best champions for each lane in League of Legends


Looking for a LoL tier list that’s up to date with the latest meta changes? The LoL patch 11.23 is finally here and it’s packed with plenty of bugfixes, balance tweaks, and further top and jungle lane changes. Patch 11.23 has shaken up the current LoL champion tier list a little with some buffs and nerfs to key characters, so you’ll want to check out our current breakdown to ensure you have the tools needed to obliterate your rivals out on the Rift. While picking a champion purely based on their strengths won’t make up for poor game sense, they will ensure your ranked climb is a little smoother.

Of course, knowing which League of Legends champions to add to your ever-growing collection can be a little tricky, especially when there are 148 to choose from. In order to help you win more ranked games, we’ve put together an in-depth guide that breaks down patch 11.23’s strongest picks and discusses why you should be using them.

If you’re brand-new to LoL then you may want to seek out our picks for the best League of Legends champions for beginners. We’ve also included some additional S-tier picks in case you have a particular dislike for any of our choices.

If you’re tired of losing games and want to increase your ranked win rate this season, then make sure you add any of the below champions to your current roster.

After all, learning to play the strongest champs in the League of Legends 11.23 meta will give you the edge you need to truly make your mark out on the Rift.

Maokai LoL tier list

TOP-LANE: Maokai

Maokai remains our top pick as he just keeps getting stronger at all levels of the game, mostly thanks to the champ’s simplicity. When you consider the gradual nerfs to many of the other S-tier top laners over the past few months, Maokai is still in a great place.

Other S-tier picks: Shen, Tryndamere, Tahm Kench


Jungle: Fiddlesticks

Fiddlesticks still remains our top pick. Once a side-lined champion in the Rift, Fiddlestick’ terrifying presence make him our top pick for the Jungle lane.

Other S-tier picks: Master Yi, Zac, Vi



Not only can Fizz easily wipe grouped enemies with Chum the Waters, he can also dash in and out of combat unscathed with the help of Nimble Fighter. In fact, trying to stop Fizz from deleting your carries can be an absolute nightmare, especially if you fail to shut them down in the early-game. Fizz has the slight edge in terms of versatility, so consider banning or adding this slippery assassin to your roster to ensure your ranked matches go as smoothly as possible.

Other S-tier picks: Annie, Lux, Kayle

LoL tier list Miss Fortnite bot-lane

Bot-lane: mISS fORTUNE

Despite a recent nerf, Miss Fortune remains a strong S-tier option and our pick of the best champion for the bot-lane in League of Legends 11.23.

Other S-tier picks: Vayne, Lux, Ezereal



The most recent patch hasn’t really touched the support lane’s S-tier picks so Leona remains at the very top – if you’re looking to deliver a lethal cocktail of stuns and slows, then this sun-loving support is the way to go. The Radiant Dawn may struggle in the early game, but once she has access to her ultimate things really start to ramp up. There’s never been a better time to add Leona to your roster, especially since there are so many carry threats roaming around the Rift at the moment. After all, the current meta champions lack decent forms of escape, so having a champion that can catch priority picks and punish any overly aggressive plays is huge, particularly in ranked matches where one fed champion can quickly snowball an entire game in your favour.

Other S-tier picks: Lux, Blitzcrank, Nami

And there are your picks from the current patch. We’ll update this page when the LoL patch 11.24 inevitably rolls around, so check back then for the latest top tier picks. Here’s the League of Legends 2022 patch schedule for all of Season 12.
