Pre-season is over, and it's time to take League of Legends seriously once more. With a brand new ADC in the bot lane to protect, what does the support meta look like after the first week of Zeri's debut?

More Tier Lists for the current meta:

Who Are Our S-Tier Support Picks in LoL Patch 12.02?

The S-Tier of our support list represents the best picks in the current meta. These are the champions you need to main to gain LP to kick off the season. Beware, though, these champions will often be banned as well!

ChampionsWin RatesPick Rates
Blitzcrank52.31%8.8%
Pyke51.33%8.38%
Janna53.36%14.9%

Janna has been abusing the bot lane thanks to the changes Riot implemented recently. She's a storm to be reckoned with and anyone who sees this pick locked in should tremble in fear.

Who Are Our A-Tier Support Picks in LoL Patch 12.02?

The A-tier is also full of extremely good champions. Especially in the support role, where you can play anything. These are the champions to pick when the S-Tier picks are either banned or picked. These are our A-Tier support champions in LoL Patch 12.02:

Soraka52.35%6.6%
Leona51.02%11.99%

Senna

51.60%6.99%
Lux50.19%11.04%

These picks are all solid. You've got a good mix as well with engage supports like Leona continuing their bot lane dominance, but enchanters like Soraka also have a pretty good time in the current meta.

Who Are Our F-Tier Support Picks in LoL Patch 12.02?

Did you want to win your game? If you answered yes, then don't pick the champions in our F-Tier support list. These are champions that are better in other positions and might need some buffs from Riot as well. Trust us.

49.48%0.55%
Sett44.93%0.99%
Rell50.35%1.6%
Gragas48.93%1.01%

Rell is just way too slow in the current League of Legends meta. She can engage, but has no way of getting out of any fight. Her ultimate also isn't as strong as any other engage supports, making her quite lackluster to play. Seriously, avoid her until Riot does something with her kit.

Hopefully, you'll be able to get some wins in, for your placement matches this season. You want to rank as high as possible to start your grind to Challenger.
