This is why I want more top tier lists. Because I realize it is one person's opinion. Yet if I can find 4-5 high ranked players maintaining a list I can find out a few things.

1) What the current metagame looks like at higher elos. This will help me fit into teams better.

2) Which heroes are consistently rated high (Ez, Taric, ect) and which are usually relatively low (Eve, Teemo, ect). This allows me to at least not look like a noob when playing with higher skilled players when I pick what they would consider a random pick.

3) Since I have limited IP it allows me to get heroes which would be called upon more by team captains, while also being ones that have a higher chance of success.

4) Be less likely to pick a hero that makes the half a million 5 year olds that play this game rage afk.

This sums it up pretty well. Tier lists in the end are based on the current meta, champs that used to reign supreme (ie.alistar) are now pushed down to the bottom due to changes/nerfs which inevitably change how the game is played.

Honestly until you are at a high elo and can count on a generally competent team I would play whoever you feel most comfortable with, because picking taric and having noone good to support is as sure fire a way to lose as any other.

There are definately some characters that are really not the best in a team but ultimately LoL is a team game so your team composition as a whole matters much more than one individual pick. I feel certain characters can go up or down tiers depending on your own team composition (IE: Katarina and Fiddle should be top tier if combined with a galeo/amumu to engage)

Elementz has a pretty definitive tier list. It's not perfect, and it is his opinion, but for the vast majority of champions, it's fairly accurate.

I find it hard to believe garen is a tier 1 champ. Hes tier 2-3 at most. Some of the data is accurate, however most is not.

Now that people have realized that Garen should be built tank because he doesn't need items to do damage, Garen's effectiveness has skyrocketed. He also fits in perfectly with this annoying tank-metagame that's going around.
