The junglers you should be playing.
Preseason has settled down and Riot doesn’t plan on making any big changes before Season 11. Get a head start on your competition by learning the meta and picking the champions that won the preseason.
S Tier – Champions that you should pick if they aren’t banned
Kayn – The KING of the preseason, an absolute 1v9 champ in the jungle.
- Two forms giving him flexibility in any situation
- Red form + Goredrinker = an unkillable, slippery tank that does damage.
- Scales hard into the late game in both forms.
Graves – The hard carry champion that bullies every jungler
- Can build different mythics depending on what the game requires
- Strong clear speed and mobility let’s him take over the map early on.
- Has few bad matchups meaning he is a safe blind pick in most situations
Nunu – The tank champion in the S tier
- Can quite literally snowball games in his favor with early gank pressure.
- High utility, enables his teammates to succeed and carry.
- The best objective control out of any junglers with Consume-Smite being able to out contest any jungler.
A Tier – Champions that are strong, but require a little more work to pull off
Kha’zix – Invisible Assasin Bug
- One-shot potential with Duskblade makes Kha extremely hard to deal with.
- Duskblade lets Kha be invisible for a whole team fight when paired with his ultimate.
- Flexibility with evolutions lets him shine in different situations
Rammus – The no-counter play champion
- Strong gank pressure that can guarantee kills with a knock-up and taunt.
- Provides frontline for the team while dealing AOE damage.
- Itemization changes with ability haste lets him taunt more than once per team fight.
Hecarim – A slightly weaker pony.
- Despite the nerfs, Hecarim is still an absolute menace if he manages to get a lead in the early game.
- Can fall behind late-game if he doesn’t get a lead against the map.
- High movement speed allows him to punish laners who are overextended.
B Tier – Viable, but have less impact than higher tiers
Skarner – The QSS tax jungler
- The best jungler for locking down people with a stun from his passive and an ultimate that suppresses
- Can win jungle matchups especially when people are unfamiliar against Skarner
- Fighting around spires can win early game skirmishes to snowball the game.
Fiddlesticks – The niche AP team fighter in the jungle
- Insane team fighting with AOE fears and silence paired with raw damage from ultimate.
- While powerful, Fiddlesticks can easily get counter-jungled and put into bad situations.
- Falls off in higher ranks where players are good at avoiding his ultimates.
Amumu – Teamfight King
- An easy to play champion with a straightforward goal of landing good ultimates in team fights.
- Has a pretty strong clear speed that is good for power farming in most ranks.
- Can be punished by meta champions such as Kayn or Graves
Losers of the Preseason (Don’t play these champions)
Sylas – Good luck being a champion
- Has a terrible clear speed making him fall behind from the beginning of the game.
- Negative win rate against all junglers.
Xin Zhao- The feast or famine champion with little payoff
- Falls off hard late game if he doesn’t get ahead.
- Synergizes best with Trinity Force mythic, but has no clear itemization path afterward.
- High risk and low reward with his feast or famine playstyle of going for early ganks.
Rengar – Itemization issues in lethality
- With the disappearance of warrior items Rengar now has to itemize Flat AD before going lethality.
- Healing based itemization with Gore Drinker forces Rengar to play for skirmishing instead of one-shotting.
- Tanks can now out damage rengar while providing more utility to their team.
