I have played this game for quite a while and have played DotA and HoN. I have a pretty good experience with character effectiveness according to skills and item builds. I have decided to create my own tier list after seeing many incomplete and (might I say) unworthy tier lists. I do however respect the opinion of others and this tier list only fits what I have seen and played myself. Please do not take ANY of these ranks as an official tier list.
NOTE: These ranks are based on factual information and personal opinion. Each rank is assigned according to early game and late game effectiveness, and transcends potential usefulness in comparison to it. Factors such as items and farm are in effect but will not be explained. Other factors like player skill are NOT considered. If you need an explanation over the rankings according to these factors, I will give you one.
Remeber: Champions are and always should be assigned according to effectiveness (deadliness, tank ability, CC Effects, Initiation, lane pushing ability)
And that it! (I think)
What I put in the tiers is what I personally believe is correct (of course according to opinion AND fact). But wait! I'm not done yet! If you are starting to get mad at the list and believe a champion belongs in a different tier, read on. A lot of champions commonly straggle between the tiers. Champions listed below could belong to the other adjacent tier. I've listed ones below which are commonly put in the adjacent tier. Champions not listed rightfully belong to their respective tier above.
