Champion Subclass List

In a previous blog we introduced the many Subclasses that help structure League’s vast Champion roster. You can find that here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/gameplay/dev-blog-classes-subclasses Now we’d like to share the specifics of how we currently see where each champion fits into the structure. Before we do that, here are a couple of things to take note of: * Just like the game itself, this list is ever-evolving - our understanding of each champion constantly changes as the game continues to grow; there may be an entire Subclass we are missing. * The list is not the law - these are general guidelines that help us think and talk about the game; we’re not looking to homogenize our champions, in fact this helps identify which champions need to be better differentiated from each other. * It’s okay to disagree with it - in fact, even internally there are many debates about which champion fits where; these are healthy discussions. * Some categorizations are based on the intended vision of a champion and not necessarily the current way they are optimally played in any given patch - “what a champion is” vs. “what they should be” is a great question to be constantly asking. So now that I’ve rambled on enough, here’s the current list we’ve settled on: **Tanks** **Vanguards** * Malphite * Amumu * Leona * Zac * Gragas * Rammus * Mega Gnar * Sejuani * Rek’Sai * Sion * Nautilus * Skarner **Wardens** * Braum * Nunu * Tahm Kench * Maokai * Shen * Thresh * Alistar * Poppy * Galio (hybrid Battle Mage) **Fighters** **Juggernauts** * Nasus * Darius * Mordekaiser * Illaoi * Trundle * Olaf * Garen * Shyvana * Udyr * Dr. Mundo * Volibear * Yorick **Divers** * Vi * Xin Zhao * Nocturne * Pantheon * Jarvan * Wukong * Warwick * Renekton * Elise * Hecarim * Lee Sin * Irelia * Aatrox * Evelynn * Diana **Slayers** **Assassins** * Zed * Kha’zix * Fizz * LeBlanc * Akali * Talon * Katarina * Kassadin * Shaco * Rengar * Nidalee (hybrid Artillery) **Skirmishers** * Fiora * Riven * Yasuo * Tryndamere * Master Yi * Jax * Ekko **Mages** **Burst Mages** * Syndra * Veigar * Annie * Twisted Fate * Ahri * Lissandra * Lux (hybrid Artillery) * Viktor * Brand (hybrid Battle Mage) **Battle Mages** * Karthus * Vladimir * Ryze * Swain * Rumble * Cassiopeia * Aurelion Sol * Gangplank (hybrid Skirmisher) * Malzahar **Artillery** * Xerath * Ziggs * Vel’Koz * Jayce (hybrid Skirmisher) * Varus (hybrid Marksman) **Controllers** **Enchanters** * Janna * Nami * Sona * Soraka * Lulu * Bard * Zilean * Karma (hybrid Battle Mage) * Taric (hybrid Warden) **Disruptors** * Anivia * Zyra * Heimerdinger * Orianna * Morgana (hybrid Enchanter) * Teemo (hybrid Marksman) * Taliyah **Marksmen** * Vayne * Caitlyn * Ashe * Corki * Draven * Jinx * Kalista * Kog’Maw * Lucian * Miss Fortune * Sivir * Tristana * Kindred * Ezreal (hybrid Artillery) * Twitch (hybrid Assassin) * Quinn (hybrid Assassin) * Jhin (hybrid Burst Mage) * Graves (hybrid Skirmisher) * Kayle (hybrid Enchanter) * Azir (hybrid Disruptor) * Mini Gnar **Unique Playstyles** * Cho’Gath * Blitzcrank * Singed * Fiddlesticks * Kennen * Urgot Hopefully this helps solidify some of the definitions we put out in the initial Subclass Dev Blog.
