Taric and Lulu got buffed in LoL Patch 11.9, but did these changes affect the support champion meta in any way shape, or form? We take a look at who the best support champions of Patch 11.9 are and who we might see a lot of at the Mid-Season Invitational.

In this LoL tier list, we'll show you the best champions for each lane. We especially focus on win rate and the carry potential as you often have to carry your teammates in any given game. Today, we will look at the Support position.

Who are the Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9?

Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 5 – Maokai

Meowkai is back in LoL Patch 11.9, and he is ready to help his ADC to victory. His saplings allow for vision which is great. That way he and his lane partner can stay safe during the laning phase. His whole kit is also filled with cc and in the later stages of the game, he is an important frontline tank who will soak up damage.

Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 4 – Leona

Any duo with Leona will have lane priority. The respect others have to show her the minute she hits level 2 is insane and that won’t change in LoL Patch 11.9 at all. She continues to be a top-tier pick with a solid kit and lots of cc as well as decent tankiness, so she can soak up damage if needed.

Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 3 – Thresh

Thresh has it all. He is tanky enough to stay alive throughout the laning phase, his hook can pull in opponents with ease and flay will push them towards his ADC for the ultimate kill. Even after a few nerfs, Thresh continues to be a top-tier Support in LoL Patch 11.9, and we will be seeing lots of him at MSI… or not if he gets perma-banned which could happen. 

Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 2 – Senna

Senna is a scaling support who can be quite scary in Patch 11.9. She has scaling range thanks to her passive as well as a global healing ultimate which can be an insane game changer. Not to mention her ability to root opponents as well giving her ADC ample opportunity to dish out damage.

Senna is a unique pick and though she has quite slow attack speed, that won’t matter for her as a Support. She's there to keep her ADC safe and let them farm, so that they can then scale and take over the game.

Best Supports in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 1 – Lulu

A buff was all she needed to land herself at the number one spot once more (Credit: Riot Games)

Lulu seems to be a top-tier pick whenever there is a tournament going on. Last year at the LoL World Championship she dominated the support meta alongside Leona, and it seems like it’s her time to shine at MSI once more. LoL Patch 11.9 buffed her W and Moonstone Renewer, a core item, also got a buff. This means Lulu is in a pretty good spot this patch. 

She is a savage little Yordle who is able to shield her lane partner and also cc the opponent thanks to her Polymorph. Her Q can also poke out anyone from lane and aid her ADC in gaining as much of an advantage as possible. You can’t go wrong with Lulu in LoL Patch 11.9.
