The Bot lane has been quite steady, with Miss Fortune being one of the top tier picks in the current meta. This time around Riot has nerfed her though, but will these nerfs have any effect on her in the current meta? Truth be told we doubt it, but let's go over where she ranks in the Bot Lane tierlist of LoL Patch 12.21. 

Check out the list below if you’re looking for a champion to help your end-of-season climb!

There really isn’t any reason not to pick her up at the moment. Kai’sa excels at filling both the ADC role while also doubling as an assassin given her ultimate, Killer Instinct, making repositioning her in fights no problem.

Kai’sa is in a good spot at the moment due to the versatility of her build paths. Although it can be a little overwhelming for a newer player picking her up, running her standard ADC build every game should still prove to provide solid results. One of her biggest weaknesses is her medium to low-range abilities, so just be mindful of that!

1. Caitlyn

Caitlyn is another great bot laner right now. She has range unlike any other champion with which she can decimate her opponents. She will be able to kill them from far away. Her late game auto attack damage is also insane. Tanks? Not a problem for her, with three tiems she's already a beast in the bot lane.

Caitlyn is also extremely beginner-friendly with a low level of entry so if you're chasing the last bit of LP to earn that upcoming Sejuani skin for reaching Gold, then this is definitely one you should keep your eyes on. With champions like Miss Fortune getting nerfed this patch, Caitlyn had just enough of a push to catapult her into OP status with ease.

All of the champions that have found their way into the A category are solid in their own right but might not be as easy to execute or as consistent as those found in S-tier. Definitely worth playing when the above champions are banned out / picked.

Jhin is just one of the most reliably ADCs in the entire game. He's got decent damage and reliable crit as well with every fourth shot guaranteed to crit. There is a reason why we've written a whole article on reasons to become a Jhin main, right? 

He's also one of those champions that just fits into any and every meta. He can snare opponents, he's got great zoning potential with his ultimate and can dominate the lane early on as well. So while he might not always be OP, he is always a reliable pick and consistently hovers around the A-tier.

Riot have done it. They've eliminated Zeri from the game. Hopefully her Valorant counterpart is doing better, but as it stands Zeri is the champion with the worst win rate int he entire game and it's all thanks to Riot gutting her so we won't have to deal with her for the entirety of the League of Legends World Championship. A noble, but necessary deed. 

Preseason is usually the best time to try and learn champs, just make sure to get some practice in unranked first!
