I would first like to start off with this is my first ever ranking or making any content for any league ever! So be prepared for this to be very incorrect and not the most professional but I will give it my best so that we can have more amazing content in BOL. This ranking is my own thoughts and does not reflect anything else from anyone in the League so please take it with a grain of salt as this will possibly be biased as all player-made content will tend to be. I used some of my knowledge of the players ability and past, mixed in some stat research to see if any of that held up or is true, watching some people on streams or spectating if the series are still on and also going off the word of other players in BOL. Have fun and keep it light hearted <3 love you all!
I don't mean any of this as flame if I could, I would put everyone in an S or A tier but then i'm just listing people which sorta isn't what i want to do. So really if people get put in a tier they dont like it's not meant that you are bad it just makes my “List” look pretty, I could of just put everyone from B and below in the same grouping, only real difference is from S to A and from A to everyone else!
MAKE SURE TO READ TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE
Top lane is the island of the rift; this lane is so desolate it lets players AFK top for almost the entire game and maintain a 9.8 CS per minute ego. I think this lane also provides one of the most diverse champions to be played from Bruisers, Tanks, Mages, Marksmen, Duelist, and Split pushers. These people have the hardest job since its possible to make one single lane mistake and never be able to recover if the enemy is just far better and that makes top lane one of the scariest roles in League of Legends
S Tier :
KillerUnicornz (VBU Plutonium)
Clarken (NSG Infinity)
Habloufough (Collective Cosmic)
Kappa Krusader (Twin Spirits)
These top laners are the creme of the crop best of the best players around our league. Some of them have the best IER’s, vision stats, CSPM, and everything needed outside of statistics to be considered great. First KillerUnicornz is the best player on their team and most pivotal to any bit of the success for VBU they are. It's clear they started building a team around them because they are just THAT GOOD. They are the highest tier player who could be in this spot there is no higher spot than where they sit. Habloufough just seems like Collective keeps spitting out great top laners over and over and over again what else can’t they do! The pressure and control they get over the top lane and ability to micro manage every single wave manipulation is insane. Kappa Krusader, is there ANY ROLE THIS PLAYER DOESNT accelerate at! They are probably the best all around player in the entire league.
Altazi (VBU Argon)
Ishe (Classic Esports)
Shadowballs000 (CB Rangers)
Feathers and Fur (Mythos Purple)
Altazi really is just a product of his teammates and will need to be proven in playoffs and without his star studded jungler spoon feeding them their lane it will be interesting! Granted they still have some of the best stats and abilities as a top laner. Ishe while not being on classic esports anymore worked super hard to try and pop off every game I dont think Ive ever seen this player miss an Ornn ult that didn't hit 5 people insanely cracked. Shadowballs000, I think Cramma is better and we should have just stuck with them. Should of stuck with Cramma since he would of not gotten solo’d this last week “Allegedly”. Feathers and Fur is a true BEAST in the top lane and the main reason for the HUGE turn around for this Mythos Purple team without Feathers who knows where that team would be without him and his GOD TIER Illaoi make sure to ban it or you just lose.
Triple Cute (CB Obsidian)
Synirr (Crimson Dolphins)
Yung Natz (Mad MAWR)
CMT is the best top laner in this entire grouping and it isn't even close. They are great at picking up any of the slack if there was any on Silverline there is little to none as this person is the mega carry top this team needs. Triple Cute may be just on an ok team but their power they possess and ability to play the best weak side and possibly some of the best strong side if given is great for their team. Synirr is great on the carry champs and able to keep his team in the positive no matter how well or bad the game could be going and that just causes so much more Dolphins HYPE. lastly in the tier is the 8.6 CSPM god, they seem to be having a down split since they are not able to maintain that classic 9.8 but hey that's not that important to most people. Natz is a great tank player and his non stop Ornn prodigy style plays are what makes Mad Rawrs a play off contending team.
The Duckling (Limitless Chaos)
BupnCup (Dead Orbit)
Funky (Literal Monkeys)
ClassyKru (Oasis Nails and Day Spa)
Rom (Shrimp Fried Rice)
The Duckling has the honor of taking over the Trynd scrim god on trick. Which gives this team even more power now that their top laner can play more than 1 champ outside of Solo queue. The play they have shown so far has great potential to be some of the best in the league. BupnCup has the luck of playing on Dead Orbit with some of the other best players in the entire league and helps me have a real reason on why I am the Dead Orbit biggest fan and number 1 supporter. They play great carries like Camille and Tanks like Ornn what more can you ask from a top tier top laner. Funky is a pivotal player in the monkeys team dynamic and without them the team would lack some power but this player really makes the team ‘built to win’. ClassyKru is unlucky in the fact that they have to play in North who clearly has some of the best toplaners in the league but that does not stop them from being cracked and popping off every single week being the teams lead carry! Rom is such a great team player. Their ability to TP at just the perfect times to come in and help the team out is unmatched in BOL, huge for this team.
Actual Bird (Imperial Gaming)
SEMZ (Final Esports)
Shugotenshi (NSG Amethyst)
Th0r22 (Gob Squad)
The D in this tier means DESTROYERS! These players just brings such havoc to the rift for all of their respected teams. Actual Bird is such a great freaking player give this person Aatrox and the game is just over might as well FF, if you are lucky to get them to actually play having schedule issues once in a while. SEMZ, this man is a bully he beat my butt toplane when I was helping a team out that needed a top laner and he beat me on every single one of my picks he straight up destroyed me and the team, clutch. Shugotenshi just is able to take any little lead they are given and just run with it the rest of the game increasing their lead every bit of the way, straight up destroyer. Lasty the person I scared of most on this list and same with all the other Gob Squad players they destroyed us Rangers when we played them. An actual animal on the rift soooo freaking good watch out for them!
Turbo Stainer (KQC)
TheRunicBlade (NSG Gold)
No matter how far down this list is everyone is a great Midlaner and I know they are massive and key parts to all of their teams winning because without a midlaner it's a 4v5 game and dang near impossible. With that someone has to be “at the bottom” (no one is really the bottom i just ran out of players). But the bottom of this list F stands for FEARSOME. These players really should be feared when going up against them, Turbo Stainer is just deadly on their WuKong, 5 man knock up ults every single time. TheRunicBlade has some of the best in lane ability that perfectly transitions into the rest of the game almost better than any other player on this list, just a key player in any of NSG Golds success.
Jungle dif, Jungle dif, Jungle dif, we all know what it is and we see it in our solo queues and some of the junglers in this league cause some major jungle differences and these players win and lose games with a single keystroke, the smite button. Teams are made around junglers and their success just look at C9 with Blaber best jungler in NA=Best team in NA. Jungle is King
MAKE SURE TO READ TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE
S Tier :
Flatzoner (Limitless Chaso)
Batman (Final Esports)
Warhead852 (Oasis Nails and Day Spa)
Flatzoner is the single greatest jungler in our league and I don't think anyone can argue that, his pathing is some of the best and has possibly the fastest clear time, close to the likes of Blaber and Closer. Watch out for this next player, they are truly the hero Gotham needed, Batman from Final is their biggest contributor to any of the teams success. Be careful giving this person Nunu because they will literally roll any team with that pick. Warhead852 has done an almost impossible job, taking over for someone who could of been the best jungler in the league if they were actually gold and not a smurf, but warhead has put in the time and is an absolute beast on the rift and not someone to disrespect, they’re a carry still, it's obvious. Lastly rounding off my S tier is CD0000000 no matter how his team is doing this player is such a good jungler and his success shows every single time on the rift a straight up legend on the rift.
Eterna1Darkn3s (Dead Orbit)
SwaggyP (Imperial Gaming)
Myth Jones (CB Obsidian)
Dead Orbit is built around Eterna1Darkn3s shot calling and control of the map, the engages this player gets are some of the best i've ever seen. They are the reason I am a part of the Dead Orbit fan club and one of their biggest supporters! SwaggyP has the next spot on this list and same with the other people on this list the engages and angles this player gets on champs like Sejuani are immaculate, a true masterpiece. Myth Jones, as a support I have lots of experience playing against Myth as they tend to love to sit bot and try and gank and get lane ganks off for 50% of the game, and they still work damn near every time! This person is so good at just sitting bot and getting the rest of their team ahead from his ganks, a true selfless player giving up his timings to camp his laners and he's the best to do it!
Wiltonix (NSG Gold)
Jayyster (NSG Infinity)
Emperor (Twin Spirits)
KronicN1nja (Collective Cosmic)
Wiltonix of NSG Gold is the best player on NSG Gold and tied for best jungler in NSG as the other is on this list. I see these players as equals they both learned from the GOAT jungler (exNSG) Myth Jones. But both of these junglers have great timings and pathings to always be where they need to be and I know in solo queue people always say “jungle diff” when they are playing! Emperor is a pivotal part to any of the Twin Spirits wins their objective control is hard to match and is probably one of the best in the league. They also have really high kill participation, great player. KronicN1ja is apart of the Collective Cosmic team and in a very hard fought division with some of the other best junglers in the league and that makes them apart of it as well, there is not a single bad thing I can think of when they show up.
Kral Sultan (formerly VBU Argon)
DueroxBasting (Mad RAWR)
Honey Thighs (Classic Esports)
Glada (VBU Plutonium)
We will start this section off with someone I should put lower on this list and or just take them off it as they were bad at elo sitting and happen to rank out and leave his team behind. But it looks like they ended up ranking out and then instantly ranking back down but via rules they are still ineligible. Creepin is such a good jungler their powers as a jungler and getting control over objectives and the pressure they can apply to lanes is hard to match and is why they are up so far on my list. DueroxBasting has the luck to play on RAWR a great team and organization run by some amazing people with good personalities and characteristics. Very important to the team would be hard to replace this player. Classic Esports owes all its success and positivities to Honey Thighs brining this player in has made them a far better team and they have such great knowledge about the jungle and how to move about it and just control a game. Glada is one of the best players in their division and that division also has some good junglers so that sure says a lot they have great engages and their ability to find good fights is unmatched.
Decelerate (CB Royal)
PacaPaul (Limit Monkeys)
Dukee11 (Gob Squad)
Decelerate has a super diverse pool of champs that it is really hard to ever ban this player out and teams really need to try and do that because almost all of they can carry and be such a pop off player on, the only thing they have more of than champs in their pool is name changes, I think him and fini on CB Royal are having a contest who can change names more often this year. PacaPaul coming off his win in ZGG Gold on an all Plat team is a MONSTER in the jungle this player is sooo freaking good. I swear some would say that their team is ‘built to win’ but actually they are one of the top junglers in the league and someone to respect or they will invade and take all the enemy teams camps. Lastly in the bunch is Dukee11 probably my most feared jungler on this entire list and the only jungler to ever win a game and beat us on CB Rangers he is only this low so I don't get scared when I open this doc up again since they are truly the jungler I fear the most.
AsianJosh (Shrimp Fried Rice)
Nightmarehall (NSG Amethyst)
EternalCr1es (Mythos Purple)
FOR MADDEN (Crimson Dolphin)
Anderson Cooper ( CB Rangers)
AsianJosh on Shrimp Fried Rice is a key player and pivotal part of the wins and execution of optimal jungle mechanics and movements. It's like fine art. Nightmarehall pops off almost every single game and is a cracked jungler love watching them play its so fun to watch. EternalCr1es goes topside and they just win games. It's clear and obvious they have a top tier top laner and a great jungler their ability to play together and control the map and game is unmatched. FOR MADDEN makes me kinda mad. I don't like that their name is in all caps and Madden also tilts me since I can never catch a win against any of the CB Rangers in our Madden leagues. But I guess they are a great jungler always helping their team win. Listen, cooper and I are cool but I simply can’t keep covering for him. His routing is so bad he once ended up in another whole BOL match. Just disappeared off the map. If he knew how to smite, or quite frankly do anything correctly at all he would be a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately for all of us, cooper is cooper
Midlane is where legends are born. Plain and simple some of the best players to ever come out of League of Legends are Midlaners, Faker, Bjergsen, Rookie, Caps, Perkz. The list can go on and on. That being said it's the same here, Mid the the most prestigious role and most looked at spot on the entire map. Now lets take a look at how Blue Otter Leauges Mids match up!
MAKE SURE TO READ TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE
S Tier :
BTG (CB Royal)
Bonniii (NSG Gold)
Buhrock (CB Rangers)
Wise324 (Shrimp Fried Rice)
First off the best mid laner in all of Blue Otter League is clearly BTG from CB Royal, this player has some of the craziest Champion pools and is an absolute monster and carry in every single game they play don't think you can ask for a better player than BTG. Bonniii Is a freak of nature and solely the mega carry of NSG gold the Champs that this player can pull out it's crazy fear this player. Wise324 Was the main purpose and carry in the last series that shrimp fried rice won. This guy is such a skillful player just watch his little micro movements it's a pure masterpiece. Lastly in S is Buhrock from CB Rangers,I mean there isn't really much I can say this guy 100% belongs in this tear if not his own tear I don't think this player has a single equal everyone wants to be Buhrock.
Rendelman (NSG Amethyst)
Eastonn8 (Final Esports)
ExStarZ (Crimson Dolphins)
BBANDB Is a cracked player this player has to face some of the hardest mid laners in the entire league and for the fact that they can still stand face-to-face with some of these players is just a sign that they’re great. Rendelman The true face of NSG amethyst is this carry midliner he pops off and it's just better his control over the mid lane is some of the likes of power of evil. Eastonn8 Is an absolute monster this guy has some of the largest and highest damage share in the entire league this player is a creature to fear. look out they have some good pics in the mid lane and then they just carry plain and simple. ExStarZ Crimson DOLPHINS HYPE lives on through this mid leaner they still have a good shot of winning their division solely off of this player. they've shown it week after week they’re going to continue, nuff said.
Thefireofthefox1 (Limitless Chaos)
Sayjoe (Collective Cosmic)
Buried Donut (Silverline
Lotuss (VBU Plutonium)
ClassyNatsu (Oasis Nails and Day Spa)
Thefireofthefox1 Yes they have some of the best mid lane stats and their champion pool is pretty good I think this is the perfect spot to put them in on a team that they carry over and over and over again. Sayjoe Is so freaking good watching them play is like Watching LCS And that's off the back of Sayjoe. His ability to play Diana and Ori SO WELL is possibly some of the best in the league. Buried Donut after the swap to mid they have just been on a killing spree looking foward to how much more havoc this player can bring on Wednesdays! Lotuss has been putting in the work to be in the running for the best mid laner in their division its true, just look at the numbers they are gonna crack some of the top players in the league if they keep performing the way they have been. Lastly in this list is ClassyNatsu the pokemon card extraordinaire, they have some of the most pop off and cracked carry performances in the entire league no cap, buuut sometimes he gets camped by his old support as payback for joining the team that beat us in the championship last year.
Drakana (Dead Orbit)
Ballslap ( Literal Monkeys)
A clogged toilet (Mythos Purple)
Azurexfire (Imperial Gaming)
Karma Divine (NSG Infinity)
Silver Rookie (Classic Esports)
Drakana is a rock(literally he loves to play malphite mid and just one shot the entire enemy team they are totally cracked for that and i love it) on Dead Orbits team without him this teams would of been on the shoulders of this bot lane to carry and now its a collective team effort. gotta love a player for that! Ballslap now this is a Literal Monkeys player who was not on/ not mostly starting mid for them on that Championship team but I think having this player on your team still makes the monkeys ‘built to win’. A clogged toilet is a clog in the enemy mid laners day this player is so good and he can literally beat any mid on the right day don't doubt this player or they will make you pay for it! Azurexfire sadly Glacial getting nerfed hurt this person on a personal level as they WERE SO FREAKING GOOD on those gosh darn Glacial champs, they are still a great player none the less but holy if glacial was still as good as it use to be this is the scariest player in the league. Karma Divine when this player has the right pieces around them like they do at the moment on Infinity is select champ pool make them as a team so strong and definitely a fearsome team watch out, the karma mid is still nutty! Silver Rookie playing in the division with some of the better midlaners in the league makes this player one of those and their ability to play Neeko is some of the best ive ever seen love this player on that champ.
Kaiten (VBU Argon)
JJH (CB Obsidian)
Smittyeh (Twin Spirits)
First up on this list is Kaiten, just because you play on the team with the best adc in the entire league doesn't mean I should put him high either, that being said they just beat everyone mid lane every game a straight up MONSTER respect this guy its not just their bot lane thats cracked is this fella too. JJH is a Twisted Fate one trick that gives Dopa a run for his money on TF, this person on cooldown with walk away barely leaving teams to not really be sure if he left or not and then tp right on top of you and murder you. This player is good when they are on their own set up in a best of 5 ;) Lastly here is Smittyeh same as i've said in some of my other rankings but D tier really means Destroyer tier and smittyeh is the main reason for that. They have such good mid lane ability and mechanics that it's actually really hard to match this person up in a good match up, good luck facing this player.
Raztastic (Gob Squad)
