Top Lane Tier List For LoL Patch 13.18: These Are The Best Top Laners

3. Quinn

If you're looking to bully your short-ranged opponents then you should just pick Quinn right away. Sure, she isn't super popular, but this patch she should rise in priority thanks to how strong she is.

Her early game is great thanks to the range advantage and once you roll into the mid and late game with her, she will have some serious burst, as well as consistent damage in her arsenal. She can roam into other lanes and make it back to her own in no time, without missing a single creep.

2. Tryndamere

Throughout LoL Patch 13.17 he was the most OP champion in the game. Of course, this meant he would receive some nerfs, but we do not think they were enough to completely throw him out of the S-tier in LoL Patch 13.18.

Tryndamere still has his insane range and he's still got the same undying ultimate. Sure, his health per level is down and he is a bit squishier early on, meaning he won't be as broken as before, but you can still abuse him in this LoL patch.

1. Malphite

The top lane crowns a new king, and he is here to stay! Malphite has seen a spike in popularity, and there are so many reasons to pick him up. As a reliable, armor-stacking tank, he is perfectly suited against any AD-wielding top laner. All he has to do is to survive his relatively weak laning phase – and even though he should be losing most matchups, he can still throw a proper punch once he claims his mythic item!

In teamfights, Malphite's R – Unstoppable Force is a strong disruption tool and will give your team the benefit of momentum. Hit all five enemy champions and you will be the star of the fight!

Best LoL Top Laner In Patch 13.18: Tier List

Top Lane 13 18 tierlist

Now that we have looked at the S-Tier of LoL Patch 13.18, 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 Top Laners in Patch 13.18?

The A-Tier is still considered excellent. 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 is banned. So if you want to climb solo queue, then these are some picks you'll want to try out this patch.

Olaf is on the cusp of being part of the S-tier this time around. With buffs to Stridebreaker and Goredrinker he has a lot of good item choices right now and we all know just how OP his early game is, right?

Who Are Our B-Tier Top 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 choose in specific match ups, but we suggest making sure you master the champion before choosing them.

Naafiri has slipped into the B-tier for this patch and it seems like she is slowly becoming the mid lane champion Riot intended her to be. She can be a fun top laner in specific match ups, but that's just it, she isn't a champion you can blind pick anymore.

Who Are Our F-Tier Top 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.

No more Ntofo-ing time! K'Sante has finally dropped to the lowest win rate among all top laners in League of Legends. If you want to play a tank with high playmaking potential, go for Malphite. If you want to out-champion-design your opponents, go for Camille. You will have a better time than you would with K'Sante.

Briar might be a cool new champion, but she is definitely not the best top laner right now. She is going to be a pretty decent jungler, once players know when to utilize her ultimate, but for now we don't suggest playing her in the top lane just yet.

These are the best and worst picks for the top lane in LoL Patch 13.18, but what is going to change with the updates to items in the upcoming League of Legends update?
