Preseason Top Tier - Top Lane

Exploring who the top tier champions in the top lane are for preseason patch 7.23!

In order to be "Top Tier" in top lane, a champion must be able to always go roughly even with the opponent early - or at least not fall heavily behind, bring great teamfight potential/versatility, or be a fantastic split pusher. Top Lane presently controls the strategy by which you will win the game (teamfight dominance, 1-3-1 split pushing, etc).

  • Forcing the enemy laner to split in mid-late game will benefit Teemo's team, since Teemo has awful teamfighting capabilities.
  • Q can be used to animation cancel your autos, so if you Auto-Q-Auto it'll come out faster than Auto-Auto-Q.

Strengths
  • Solid lane sustain from Q and poke from ghouls+E make early laning a breeze.
  • Yorick is one of the fastest turret pushers in the game with Trinity Force and his ultimate.

  • Yorick should get deep wards into the enemy jungle either by himself or with help of teammates to split safely.
  • Does Yorick teamfight? Nope. Does Yorick split push? Yup.
