S Tier Champions
This tier brings together the strongest units in the game. They’re each powerful stand-alone units that work well in almost every comp. In the case of Garen and Nidalee, they’re cheap units that can be bought and upgraded in the early game, while staying strong and reliable in the late game.
Cho’Gath is arguably the best standalone unit. He fits nicely in Void but ignoring his synergies, his crowd control is the categorically the most powerful in the game. It has a huge radius, trumping that of Sejuani and Gnar.
Draven is on another level. You probably won’t find him until the mid to late game, but when you do, he’s well worth buying. He was just recently nerfed, but he’s still incredibly impactful. Combine him with Darius and the pair of them will cause trouble. Add a couple of items, and maybe even a level two upgrade, and his axes will hit like trucks.
It might be surprising to see Pyke so high on this list. As a standalone unit, he’s not particularly powerful, but when you add a Spear of Shojin, or two to his inventory, he’s unstoppable. His AoE three-second stun can make or break your game.
