EB24 about League of Legends #12 Current meta, Patch 10.2 - from the Booster perspective

The Patch Rundown was done last Monday and now that you know all the changes and what it will affect on the Summoner's Rift, let's take a look at the meta for this patch and what changed!


  • Top

As for the patch 10.2, there were no big changes for top lane. There were few moves and additions to the tier lists tho.

Tier List for Top Lane


The S tier stays the same for now Kled and Mordekaiser are still the best choice for soloQ. As for A tier, we are greeting a new champion Sett as it’s been enough time to notice his impact on the game. Despite him being very strong he has the same issue as Illaoi and that’s very poor gameplay against ranged champions. He’s also getting a pretty solid nerf on his W next patch but we will cover it another time.

We’re moving Darius to A tier as his been getting more popular because a lot of people are making the same mistake again and that is not respecting Darius passive. Another champion that is getting more love is Urgot, people seem to have forgotten about him as well despite in higher rank he is a really useful offtank that is able to dominate the game. The last choice is putting Skarner into the tier list as an A pick. He’s not seen very often but I’ve played few games as him and it’s pretty impressive how much impact on the game he has. It’s also hard for people to counter him as they don’t really see it what so ever so they’re confused about their playstyle.


  • Jungler

Unlike other patches, 10.2 has some important changes for jungler. Qiyana W attack speed nerf is going to hurt a lot but she is still playable. She had already weak first clear and now it's weaker. I don't think that she can survive a full clear. Another important change is for heralds HP. I think herald cheese is more viable than ever now it has no HP at all. For last agility, cloak nerf hurts graves a lot because we can't get %100 crit. Also, I will move Kha'Zix to the S tier because of herald nerf and delete %100 crit graves build. I'm surprised that they still didn't nerf Sett so like the previous patch if you can pick him just pick him. He is still overpowered compare all the champions on that list.

  • Mid

Patch 10.2 brings us only a few changes to the mid lane. Qiyana got nerfed by decreasing her early passive attack speed from w, but it is more than a jungle change for her and does not change her play style at mid lane. Ziggs got some good buffs on almost every ability he has but to be honest we cannot yet position him at the tier list. In the meta when assassins and good roamers are dominating mid lane I don't think there would be a place for Ziggs to be a solid pick. The champion I'm really curious about is karma mid. She goes some based dmg buff, it is of course not a great Soloq pick but if you play duo, maybe she will climb the tier list ladder due to her poke, shield and sustain on mid (mantra + W) what can be very effective against aggressive 3lvl champs, especially assassins and poke champs.


Tier List for Mid Lane



As we can see the tier list we can highlight:

Malzahar – he is rather a control match up so he was struggling in giving out better outcomes in late game than champs like Cassiopeia, Kassadin, Ryze. What changed? Simply Conqueror nerfs and good jungle picks like Lee/Elise. Malzahar managed to be great LVL 6 lockdown with those junglers to punish either scaling picks or just do some flash+r catching. He has the ability to push fast and give priority which is very important.


Fizz – I call it a great comeback, he is the greatest ap assassin but he is hardly punished by picks like Cassiopeia, Kassadin, Vladimir so when their domination started to decrease, fizz just instantly coming up in the list. Great flanking champion, amazing dives with his ability to reset turret aggro and basically in early games every locked fish is a kill for your team.


Conqueror Kassadin – this funny nerf didn't make anything worse about Kassadin, when he is even in the lane he can solo carry almost all late games. Beast at split pushing and in 1v1 situation after 11 LVL. Basically when Kassadin got 16 LVL the game is won.


Conqueror Diana – she manages to be a great LVL 3 champion with the potential to engage on the mid enemy champion. That makes her climb on our tier ladder. She has some great combat stats with her ult in team fights which actually deals a lot of damage.


Conqueror Sylas after buff, he is strong burst champ, his healing skill make him a very good team fighter on the front line.


Runes:

We rather come back to the phase rush from conqueror for Cassio and Ryze.

Runes #1 are the best for Talon, Ekko, Fizz, Qiyana, Syndra

Runes #2 are the best for Kassadin, Katarina, Diana, Sylas, Yasuo


Runes #1:

First Rune: Domination

Going for:

- Electrocute

- Sudden Impact

- Eyeball Collection

- Ravenous Hunter

Second Rune: Inspiration

- Biscuit Delivery

- Time Warp Tonic



Runes #2:

First Rune: Precision

Going for:

- Conqueror

- Presence of Mind

- Legend: Tenacity

- Coup de Grace

Second Rune: Domination

- Taste of Blood

- Ravenous Hunter


  • ADC

In the current patch 10.2, we’ve seen a couple of nerfs to Aphelios, buffs to Draven and Jinx which help them out but overall they’re not impactful enough to bring them to a higher tier Draven overall suffered from the item changes so they gave him a bonus ad ratio on his ult, which is good for him because he builds a lot of AD.


For Jinx, the changes are helpful as well if your team is on baron/dragon and you get the objective you can start the fight with your passive which is a pretty good advantage, with Aphelios he got nerfs on all his Q’s except for the Gravitum(the purple one) which hit him a little bit but he’s still a strong adc with a lot of potential because his skill ceiling is so high and there is a lot of creativity to the champion.


Miss Fortune is probably the strongest ADC right now along with Senna, Miss Fortune didn’t get touched this patch and neither did Senna they even lose the competition because of the Aphelios nerfs, Lucian has also been popping up recently a lot of people started playing him but he’s mostly played in the top lane now.

Tier List for ADC



  • Support

Focus mostly on hard engage supports at the moment, since Nautilus got some nerfs on his early game Leona is now the strongest support in the game followed by Nautilus, Thresh, Braum, Senna, Nami.


You can always pick Taric into the S-tier supports since he is really good as a counter engage with Guardian and his W that gives bonus armor and shield and also his R are very useful. He usually out scales all the S-tier supports, you just need to be careful on the early game.

Tier list for Support


Leona is the standard early mid-game powerhouse tank engage you can set up the lane for ganks or do a traditional engage to guarantee a kill in standard 2 vs 2, she can rotate for any jungle invades, mid lane ganks or deep warding enemy jungle.


Nautilus is like Leona, good for the early mid-game but unlike Leona, his scaling is really good in the late game, he can engage and guarantee kills, he can set up for ganks, rotate to the river to get invade jungle, deep vision or ganks on the enemy mid laner.


Thresh can do the same as the main 2 S-tier but, he is weaker on the tank stats since he mostly relies on Aftershock to be as tanky. He doesn't have natural tank abilities aside from his passive but it cannot be compared to Leona or Nautilus W.


Braum is basically defensive support, good vs poke and counter engage. His passive is really good to control the enemy team comps and peeling off with his R and preventing damage with his E but, he is not as powerful in the early game as the S-tier picks.


Senna is good in the lane but unless you pair her with Caitlyn or Aphelios, she feels weaker vs the meta supports, you can try Taric Senna vs S-tier picks and become an unstoppable force in the lane with double sustain and the tanky stats from Taric plus the insane scaling.


Rakan is a hard engage with disengage, the main thing that's holding him back is that he is not as tanky as the S-tier champions, but in combination with Xayah and a decent bruiser engage from jungle or top, he can compete vs the S-tier supports.


Blitzcrank and Taric are situational picks that can compete vs the S-tier since it's all about the skill level and mechanics. You can always outshine them, both of them have good late-game whit their game-changing hook and Taric has aoe sustain, stun and R.
