LIST IS CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW - EDITING THIS IS LIVE
Welcome to Oncewasblind's Tier List
I'm a serious player gearing up for competitive Dominion; I win about 80% of my games and will place #1 or #2 on my team around 90% of the time. Before you read my list, please take some time to understand the roles I'm sorting them by. Dominion does not abide by the standard tank - support - assassin - jungle - carry archetypes we have seen in Summoner's Rift. Instead, we have:
Brawler - a champion who does significant sustained damage and can force encounters with weaker targets.
Controller - an expert at capturing and disrupting points. They do not even have to engage in combat, as long as they're able to confuse and waste time, they're doing their job.
Holder - a champion who excels at holding a point, who can either stall their opponent long enough to wait for reinforcements, or after their death are able to keep a point from being captured.
Invader - a champion who can quickly neutralize an enemy, typically a Controller or a Holder. They are usually highly mobile with extreme burst damage.
NOTE: I will list the ten best champions in their own tier, and then the ten best for each role. Champions are listed in order of strength:
Top Tier - The ten kings of Dominion. They are unmatched.
Shaco, Rammus, Kassadin, Volibear, Blitzcrank, Kog'Maw, Pantheon, Karthus, Lee Sin, Jax
Brawler Tier - Sustained melee damage dealers.
Kayle, Riven, Wukong, Ryze, Skarner, Irelia, Tryndamere, Shyvana, Renekton, Sion
Controller Tier - Highly mobile capture and disruption.
Ezreal, Eve, Sona, Gangplank, Janna, Alistar, Teemo, Nidalee, Singed, Zilean
Invader Tier - Assassins and ranged attack damage.
Poppy, Fizz, Talon, Akali, Sivir, Leblanc, Urgot, Nocturne, Vayne, Graves
Holder Tier - Tanks and champions who are difficult to kill.
Heimerdinger, Yorick, Maokai, Soraka, Xerath, Garen, Jarvan IV, Morgana, Amumu, Galio
I've included some screenshots of my scores to verify my competence. I will be continually adjusting this list based upon your feedback, so instead of getting upset that your favorite champion isn't where you want him, convince me instead, I'm reasonable. I'll even test out your recommended build, and if you'd like to post a screenshot of your own to support your argument, I encourage you to do so.
