We’re trying a fun new thing here. Every update we’d like to make a thread - like this one! - for the community to vote on their top picks for each role. Editing wikis is pretty complex when there are lots and lots of images and words, so we’re just gonna do it with simple polls. They will open when the update drops, and we’ll close them after a week or so of voting, while people get used to the new update. Then we’ll see what everyone thought, and we’ll have a community-built tier list!
Doesn’t matter what tier you are, or how qualified you feel - just pick your top five choices for each role!
Feel free to chat about your picks in this thread, and even to start your own tier list threads!
Yep, I already voted based on expectations, but for the next one you can start it like a week in the patch and for 3 days (for example). After all it should have some time till the patch end to be more valid as reference for new players that want to see what is seen as strong.
Surprised Anka wasn’t listed as a jungler nor Lorelai as an option for laning mid. That said, with Anka’s buff to her B on minions, she’s more viable in lane. Still a solid and pretty meta jungle pick. Lorelai can bully pretty hard as a mid CP and a top CP laner. As can Lyra. Overall, I like the options and I submitted a vote for every role.
Ok, 4.2 will be forever known as the community tier list where certain choices were left off because HipsterSkaarf is a skrub who doesn’t know better. if you all want, though - I can redo the thread and add a couple more options. Y’all will have to re-vote though, if that happens.
She’s definitely best as top or captain, but she’s good enough to cover any position through to the mid game, and in late game she’ll being the same impact to team fights regardless. She should still be top lane before any other lane or jungle, but she’s safe to pick early, knowing you might have to switch up and take any other position. The jungle is the worst place for her, but that’s more because she’s really great in the lanes than bad as a jungler; she farms just fine, and is good at ganks, jungle fights, etc. but she usually has more impact if she’s a constant presence in the lanes. She’s only a bad pick when other heroes aren’t bringing enough damage and your team really needs a glass cannon.
I usually don’t get stuck taking Lorelai into the jungle, but it’s pretty normal for the draft to work in such a way that I meant to do top lane but end up somewhere else. If I’m one of the first picks I often take her just because I know I can play anywhere with her, so it gives the rest of the team a lot of flexibility.
Phew… voted for all the positions. I do realize I missed out on Lorelai in mid now. Not sure she’s the strongest there, and I probably wouldn’t have put her in my top 5, but she’s viable, and a good comfort pick when I’m feeling nervous about the rest of my comp.
I’m anxious to see what everyone’s top captain picks are!
