S Tier – Champions that you should pick if they aren’t banned

  • Early power spike with Eclipse.
  • Has no bad matchups.

Samira – The best duo bot lane champion

  • Insane synergy with any CC support.
  • Massive outplay potential with lifesteal itemization.
  • Built-in windwall that blocks all projectiles.

Miss Fortune – Lethality and Movement Speed

  • Strong laning phase with W passive and Q poke.
  • Spikes earlier than auto-attack based crit champions.
