Over in the General Discussion forum, there are several threads entitled "So-and-so's 5v5 Tier List" and similar titles like this.

As a newbie, what you need to know about tier lists is this: For the most part, they don't concern you. These lists divide champions into various levels of competitive worth relative to one another. At anything but higher skill levels, any champion can be played competitively with proper attention to team composition. So until you get to the point where you're playing in tournaments and such, just play (and get good at) the champions that interest you.

Who knows? With all the constant balance changes, by the time you become competitive at a higher level, the champ you learned to excel with could be the new OP.

Have fun!

i disagree. I feel that using an underpowered champion will never get you better at the game. While i do not agree with L0cust's list entirely, people should look at these lists certainly.

Agree with the OP, but it can't hurt your play later on if you pick one of the top rated champions to play right now. Champions that kick ass in high level play can still kick ass at your level, and it will give you a leg up as your opponents get better.

They may seeing as solo play relies a bit more on champion. High level play is generally based on skill, strategy and team composition more than champion tiers.

If you are new I think that any character who is not effectively "broken" bad will be useful to learn for later on.
Character such as: Eve and Trynd wil not help once you become very good, as they have fairly unique playstyles and at the moment are not very good at all.

However they are both getting changed soon, so it remains to be seen how viable they will become.

For those wondering what Tier List actually are...

All champions are good, though some fit in with almost all groups, while others are only good with specific champions.

Hense the Tier list... the higher the champ is on the list, the better they work with most teams (Sivir works wonders with almost all teams, good push power and an AoE buff...)
Does it mean you only play the higher Tier champs? No, hell no, play who you want... All champions are viable, and unless you're in the higher ELO, you won't see a difference in play if you're using, say, Alistar or Rammus.

Even if you are trying to be competitive, pick a champ you like, get to 30, and have fun with it... you still need the 30,000 IP for the rune set anyway, have fun getting there, its all you can do.
