Best and Worst Champions

Game Updates and FAQs

Last Updated: January 2022
This is a major update. We added new sections for the strongest and weakest champions. We also added a section for games updates and FAQs.

LoL’s developer Riot Games started the year with a bang by teasing the 115 million monthly active players of the game with the return of URF in its rotating game mode.

URF is a featured game mode in LoL that was initially introduced as an April Fools’ Event in 2014. It’s a game mode that is known for its lack of mana restrictions and highly-reduced abilities’ cooldown, allowing players to spam their champions’ skills. Since then, URF has become a staple in LoL’s game events and became one of the all-time favorite game modes in LoL. With its popularity, it has undergone several updates and changes. And that, in LoL’s patch 11.19 update, developers have introduced new URF features that will improve the overall gaming experience. FUN RIGHT?

Dig in for more updates!

Now that you are all caught up with the latest updates about one of the most anticipated game modes in LoL, let’s get a move and zoom in on some of the most powerful champions you can play through our URF Tier List. 


URF features an impressive roster of champions that players can choose from, popular for its lack of mana restrictions and cooldown reduction on abilities. But as with all game characters, URF champions are not created equal. Some stand out and rise above the rest, simply because they are that good–these are the ones that belong to the S Tier. Champions that fall short of this standard belong to the A Tier. While champions who are powerful enough to be above average but not so much to become great alternatives are included in the B Tier. Then, champions that are effective in only certain situations are grouped under C Tier. And lastly, the least viable ones belong to D Tier. After taking the Kill-Death-Assist (KDA) ratio, win rates, and pick rates into consideration, here’s our URF Tier List.
