Patch 12.21 is a patch that has not had a lot changes overall, but still it managed to move away two strong champions in the bot lane, from their dominance.In the support role, that is Blitzcrank.
These are, statistically, the best support champions in Season 12, patch 12.21. As before, the best support strategy relies on making an overpowered champion even worse, however, some engage champions are still viable, and the balance is still better than it was at the beginning of the season.
Unfortunately, engage champions that are not meant for the support role have become one of the best supports in the game, again. Once he took his place as one of the best supports in the game, Amumu has stayed here for quite some time, and won't be moving any time soon, without serious nerfs.
Support Tier List: Who to Play in LoL Patch 12.21?
As it stands, mage supports are making a comeback into the meta, with the last few patches. None more so than Zyra however, who is an excellent control mage in the early game.
While in the late game her ability to control the battlefield with her plants is joined by some incredible Liandry's damage. Engage supports will not be followed up by their ADCs when you play Zyra, while enchanters will not be able to shield the damage she can put out.
Amumu is a champion that has become a part of the support meta from his mini rework. And now, his crowd control abilities, which were optimized for jungle clears, work extremely well in the bot lane.
If you want to play an engage support, and be certain that your engage will net a kill, as well as have an ult to destroy any team fight, then Amumu is a pick for you.
Sona is, at the same time, one of the easiest and hardest enchanter champions to play in League. That is due to her in-and-out playstyle, which is easy to learn and hard to master.
She works well with the champions that are currently part of the meta, however, and her place as one of the best picks is guaranteed, both in low elo, due to the low skill requirement, and high elo due to her scaling, especially with her new buffs.
Support Tier List in LoL Patch 12.21: The Other Support Champions
Champions are not made or broken by their win rates. There are still a couple of factors to take into account, such as player preference, player skill, matchup, and even their pick rate. So, let's take a look at where the rest of the support picks lie in Patch 12.21.
The A-Tier Support Picks of Patch 12.21
These are the picks you go for when the S-Tier are banned. They're solid picks and will get you the W, but it won't be as strong as the S-Tier. So if you want a good win/loss rate, then these are some of the best picks you can choose in the current League of Legends support meta.
- Morgana - Win Rate 50.03%, Pick Rate: 6.8%
- Renata Glasc - Win Rate: 50.88% Pick Rate: 6.1%
- Soraka - Win Rate: 52.29% Pick Rate: 6.2%
- Janna - Win Rate; 52.40% Pick Rate: 6.5%
Engage supports are once again being pushed back in favor of the enchanters in the bot lane. However, the mere presence of Amumu and Blitzcrank has pushed Morgana upwards immensely, due to her Black Shield.
As for the rest of our tier list, the champions listed as weaker are not necessarily weak outright, it's just that falling behind with them is far easier, and far more punishing. After all, a good Zyra only needs her Mythic to threaten the enemy AC, no matter how fed they are.
The F-Tier Support Picks of Patch 12.21
On the opposite side of overpowered, we have the following picks. Whether they are part of a long-forgotten off-meta or have just fallen out of favor with the current meta we find ourselves in, these are the champion that you pull out only when playing normal games with a five-man premade. They, at least, will not mind you initing their game with your pick.
- Sett - Win Rate: 46.2%, Pick Rate: 1.40%
- Trundle - Win Rate:48.52% Pick Rate: 3.8%
- Pantheon - Win Rate: 47% Pick Rate: 1.6%
Running blindly at your enemies is not making a comeback, ever, it seems. If you want to play a kill lane, pick Amumu in this patch, it's a far better option. One of the best, actually. Just make sure you have an appropriate ADC, that can follow you up, at your side.
