I still think Malzahar should be above ryze :S

Ryze: Typically high HP unless built complete Glass Cannon. One Semi-CC. MR Reduc. Broken Spell Flux(an iditiotic bounce rage).
Malzahar: Incredibly high single target damage. Superior AoE damage in a team fight. AoE silence. Single Target Stun with an incredibly high AP ratio. (his ult still needs to be fixed imo though) Incredibly good early game ganker if he takes mid.

Could you explain the reasoning behind Soraka dipping to tier 4? Wasn't she tier 1 last week, they nerf her mana spell, now she's tier 4? OR am I high and she was never t1

Thank you

If this list is only intended for top tier draft mode play, what does publishing this do other than spawn wave after wave of uneducated, thoughtless "nerf this!" "buff that" spam from sheeple?

You're right, the characters at the top are powerful, but couldn't we have figured that out for ourselves?

First off, You're sadly mistaken everytime you call Katarina a "CARRY" she is in NO way a carry, she is an ASSASSIN.

So, I'd say your tier list is off in that aspect. Katarina is one of, if not the best Assassin's in the game because of...

A: Her ability to SHUT DOWN a carry mid.
B: She has the strongest move in the entire game/ (Nothing does more raw damage than Kat's ult)
C: Her escape / chase is almost unrivaled. (Shaco and Kass are likely the few that are better.)


As for your reasoning for tier three? Ok, yes. CC can counter her, but if you are playing as you should be, you simply wait out of sight, then hop in after CC is blown, furthermore, Bveil is a fair choice, as is black shield. Other options include, Ccing their CC, or using a move like black shield.


Even without her ult she is an AMAZING poker. Throw a BB with KI and hit 5 targets for 400 damage AND cut healing in half? This being done every 5 seconds or so with CDR? Yea... I'd HAVE to debate your placement. I can TOTALLY agree she isn't tier 1, but i'd say she is considerably better than some of your tier 2's
