Solid list, and I agree with it based on what I've seen.

Question about changing tiers; you've mentioned Anivia not holding up to Fids and Annie (which I can totally see), but it confuses me how Anivia was considered top/high tier for many lists previous to this one. Annie and Fids have only been nerfed since then, but her ranking has fallen a bit. Is this just due to a shifting meta and players getting better, or is there something else to it?

So what's the deal with Teemo? Too squishy? Oracle's make shrooms ineffective? Or just...he doesn't do anything better than say.. Ashe?

Just curious

Well, he's squishy. Other than shrooms, his skills are lackluster. Ashe has her ult and slow. Tristana has 4 useful abilities, one of which makes it easy to max aspd on her. (90% boost! YEAH!)

(On a side note, Tristana is scary when you have all the gold in the world... Hit Q>kill everything in a five mile radius before it wears off)

Soraka.... I'm waiting for the day she moves down a tier or two. She's really annoying mid-game, when she can heal enough to bring back half her whole teams health. It just makes it hard to play, until you get to where you can bulldoze her down in 2 seconds.

I don't understand what the point is in picking Teemo over Twisted Fate. I mean, blind vs stun. Shroom wards that go away vs TF's ult that sees everyone on the map and he can teleport there. Teemo's speed ability that goes away when he is hit vs an ability that's actually useful in a fight.

Seriously Elementz, this threat has a large lack of Mundo in it.

Why is Malphite so low? It seems like his Ulti ---> Ground slam aspd reduction would really hurt any enemy carry, and his passive lets him harass well in the lane. I would like an explanation of why Malphite is in Tier 4.

i've been maining udyr for a long time, and I always do well with him building him as more of a carry, rushing wits end->trinity->guinsoos, which works very well for damage, but isn't amazingly tanky (but 10-1 scores are common, he's pretty tanky without any tank items), what build do you recommend for a more team oriented udyr in 5v5?

tanky udyr is getting whatever items fits the DMG of the other team, but don't go overboard. Toss in some DPS items like shen, frozen mallet, ghostblade. etc. All depends on the team you are against.

You can try Innervating Locket its very good and is pretty much all the "tankyness" you need when going a DPS build. The extra heals, base HP and Mana and Locket also helps your team. Go to CLGaming and watch HotshotGG play Udyr. He plays a mean Locket Udyr.
