Ashe got buffed, and Miss Fortune nerfed, but will these adjustments have any impact on the solo queue meta of League of Legends Patch 12.18? Well, that's what we're going to look at in our bot lane tier list for the current LoL Patch.

In this LoL tier list, we'll show you the best champions for each lane. We especially focus on win rate and the carry potential because you often must carry your teammates in any given game. Today, we will look at the ADC position.

Check out our other champion Tier Lists in the meta:


LoL Patch 12.18: Best Bot Laners

2. Twitch

Twitch is one of the best champions in the game. My co-worker might not agree with me since she bans him any chance she gets, but this rat is one nasty bugger and his late game damage is insane. No one can compete with him and that's just a fact.

Twitch hasn't gotten any buffs or nerfs, but he just keeps standing at the top of the bot lane tier list, because he's just that strong. He is one of the best champions in the game right now and won't need any help. In the late game he can shred through anyone, even tanks as long as he stays safe in the backline. Easy.

1. Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune got a huge buff in the previous patch and she will continue to be one of the best champions in the meta, seriously her nerf is so minimal..... The changes from Patch 12.17 will dissuade you from spamming E over and over, playing more around your Q, but Miss Fortune has such a simple kit that it won't be hard to change your MF play style a little.


Miss Fortune has insane damage, burst potential and while the inital change on her Q did make her completely OP and Riot adjusted it not even a day after Patch 12.17 released, she will still be insane in LoL Patch 12.18.

Now that we have looked at the S-Tier of LoL Patch 12.18, it's about time that we check out where some of your other favorite champions are. Which of these picks is your main?

Who Are Our A-Tier Bot Laners?

The A-Tier is still considered superb. These are champions that you can easily pick and still win games. They're the ones you'll want to choose when the S-Tier are banned. So if you want to climb solo queue, then these are some picks you'll want to pick up this patch.

Caitlyn

Samira50.43%11.3%
Nilah50.04%3.5%

Samira is one of the best champions currently. She has mobility, damage and if you manage to land an ult it's even an easy pentakill in your pocket. Hopefully we get to see some stylish Samira plays at Worlds this year.

Who Are Our B-Tier Bot Laners?

The B-Tier consists of champions that are good, but won't have as much strength as either the A or S Tier — obviously. These are picks you can pick in specific match ups, but we suggest making sure you master the champion before choosing them.

Kalista48.53%3.7%
Vayne49.23%7.2%
Veigar50.53%0.5%

Seraphine is back in the bot lane as an APC and while her support role has fallen off she's still a pretty decent damage dealer, especially with her AoE damage. If you want to go a bit off-meta then she is definitely worth a try.


Who Are Our F-Tier Bot Laners?

These are the picks we advise you to forget about this patch. Either their win rates are abysmal or they were nerfed in the patch. So make sure to avoid picking these champions at all costs.

Aphelios... what happened to you? Aphelios and Zeri are the most giga nerfed champion in the game, will Riot let Zeri flop just like they did with Aphelios?
