Howdy, Aqua Dragon here. On
I collected the graphs on Patch 9.5 for each champion to see if we can find out when every champion is at their most influential.
Note that technically, all champions in the game get stronger as the game goes on. But these graphs show how their strength will, generally, scale relative to all the other champions in a match. Yeah maybe Pantheon is technically strongest at Minute 40 compared to Minute 20, but how strong are they compared to all the other champions, and how do their strengths translate to that point in the game?
One final note: I collected these during Patch 9.5, so the graphs have probably changed a bit since then. But while the numbers may have shifted a little, the overall shape of the graph will generally be the same.
Use Ctrl+F to search a champion. All champ names are typed out.
Rampers become more influential with every passing minute. They often have extremely powerful scaling damage (Veigar, Vayne) or have massive pick potential that can swing a whole game in one second (Annie, Skarner)
Exemplars: Kog'maw, Kayle, Annie, Skarner
Interesting: Teemo, Shaco, Trundle
Alistar, Annie, Azir, Cassiopeia, Gragas, Kayle, Kayn, Kha'zix, Kog'maw, Master Yi, Rengar, Shaco, Shen, Skarner, Sona, Taric, Teemo, Trundle, Vayne, Veigar, Vladimir, Wukong
Early Game Monsters
Early Game Monsters are the exact opposite of rampers. They are strongest in those first critical 15 minutes of the match, and then proceed to slowly slowly fall off in relevancy. This category is home to many lane bullies (Darius, Renekton) and high-damage dueling junglers (Lee Sin, Xin Zhao)
Exemplars: Lee Sin, Lee Sin, Kled, Pantheon
Interesting: Karthus, Vel'koz, Morgana, Sylas
Akali, Brand, Darius, Elise, Jarvan, Jayce, Karma, Karthus, Kled, Leblanc, Lee Sin, Morgana, Nautilus, Neeko, Nidalee, Olaf, Pantheon, Poppy, Pyke, Quinn, Rek'sai, Renekton, Rumble, Sivir, Swain, Sylas, Syndra, Talon, Udyr, Vel'koz, Volibear, Xin Zhao, Zed, Zoe
Mid and Late – Post-Laners
Post-Laning champions are weakest in the first 15-20 minutes of the game, but then spike into relevancy for the remainder of the match. This category is home to champions with significant scaling durability (Mundo, Nasus) or really notable power spikes (Ezreal, Gnar)
Exemplars: Amumu, Evelynn
Interesting: Orianna, Kalista, Heimerdinger
Amumu, Bard, Dr. Mundo, Evelynn, Ezreal, Garen, Gnar, Heimerdinger, Jhin, Kalista, Malphite, Maokai, Miss Fortune, Nami, Nasus, Nocturne, Nunu, Orianna, Rammus, Sejuani, Singed, Soraka, Warwick, Zac
Mid-game – Rise and Fall
Champions with mid-game spikes aren't as great during lane, but they spike up pretty powerfully right after! …and then start to fall off for the remainder of the match (usually). This category is home to champions with really high base damage spells (Draven, Shyvana) and ults that are impactful during clumped fights that fall off in the more split-up lategame (Kennen, Zyra). However, among the categories, this one still has quite some more diversity than that (Janna, Blitzcrank)
Exemplars: Yorick, Viktor
Interesting: Jinx, Illaoi
Ahri, Aurelion Sol, Blitzcrank, Draven, Ekko, Gangplank, Hecarim, Illaoi, Ivern, Janna, Jinx, Katarina, Kennen, Lissandra, Malzahar, Mordekaiser, Shyvana, Sion, Taliyah, Twisted Fate, Varus, Vi, Viktor, Xerath, Yorick, Zilean, Zyra
Really Late-Game Champions – Time Bombs
"Wait, there's only four people here". Yes, I chose to make distinction between a Ramping champion (where you'll find Vayne / Kog'maw) vs these four, who aren't just poor in the first 15 minutes of the game, but remain poor even into the 20-25 minute mark. But after that, their influence RAPIDLY escalates, when they finally "go online". This goes beyond mere ramping; it's not even their final form yet!
Exemplars: Ryze, Kassadin
Interesting: Braum, Ornn
Braum, Kassadin, Ornn, Ryze
Early and Late – I'll be back!
These champions have really strong laning phases, but then tend to fall off or have a hefty dip similar to a the early-game monsters… until they suddenly swing back into relevancy as the really late game approaches. You don't have long to abuse the vulnerability on these foes. This category seems home to many heavy tower pushers (Tryndamere, Ziggs) and durable dueling champions (Irelia, Jax)
Exemplars: Camille, Cho'gath, Twitch
Interesting: Lux, Galio
Camille, Cho'gath, Diana, Fiora, Fizz, Galio, Irelia, Jax, Kai'sa, Kindred, Lucian, Lulu, Lux, Rakan, Tahm Kench, Tristana, Tryndamere, Twitch, Urgot, Xayah, Ziggs
Consistent – Consistent
Don't be tricked by the shape of these graphs! That y-axis is barely moving, sometimes even less than 2 percentage points over the duration of most matches. The whole deal here, none of these champions have significant spikes in their influence; you'll be noticing them around the whole time. Many of them have very respectable damage coupled with some kind of very powerful utility effect (Fiddlesticks, Yasuo)
Exemplars: Riven, Ashe
Interesting: Caitlyn, Leona
Aatrox, Anivia, Ashe, Caitlyn, Corki, Fiddlesticks, Graves, Leona, Riven, Thresh, Yasuo
I used data from Patch 9.5 from the Lolalytics website. Charts were sorted by Platinum+, Global. Lolalytics is created by /u/Lolalytics.
There is a distinction to make between "champion strength" vs "relative strength". To avoid swamping this whole thing in semantics and asterisks, I've used "relative strength" throughout this whole analysis. Technically all champions are strongest later and weakest earlier, but for the purposes of this, we're interested only in their relative match strength at each minute.
Thanks for reading!
