Patch 10.22 has brought some interesting changes to the top lane and while most champions will remain untouched, we could still see some new picks emerge in this position.
Patch 10.22 is out and there are some interesting changes to the top lane. That's why we have prepared a list of champions you should play or avoid on the top lane island.
- S TIER:
Darius is the strongest top lane champion right now because his lane presence is simply too much to handle for most top laners at the moment. However, if you don't get a decent lead early on, he could fall off as the game prolongs.
- A TIER:
Thanks to this flat Magic Resist buff, Nasus doesn't have to rush an early MR item now as he can rely on his ultimate to provide the much needed defensive stats against heavy magic damage champions.
- B TIER:
Neeko has become one of the most popular top lane counter-picks against mele bruisers. You can easily push in the way and punish the enemy top laner if he finds himself out of position. Connecting her E-Q combo will most likely take out 40 to 50 per cent of the opponent's health bar.
- C TIER:
In the past couple of weeks, we've seen Lulu emerge as one of the strongest and safest lane bullies in the top lane and that's why the balance team decided to give her a sizeable nerf to Glitterlance (Q). Losing 40 damage at max level is a pretty significant nerf that could push her out of the top lane meta.
