Top 10 League of Legends Skill Cap Champions

This LIST IS NOT THE HARDEST CHAMPIONS TO PLAY, This list is about champions with the most potential to outplay and outperform their opponents, therefore they have higher skill caps. It doesn't mean you can't suck at riven and still win as riven, because you can but riven has some of the highest outplay potential against high elo opponents who actually know what they're doing FOR EXAMPLE. Why are there no SUPPORTS? Supports are definitely useful and can make plays but they in no way can affect the game the way other laners can.

The Top Ten

1 Riven

Low cooldown shield, countless dashes, area knock-up and insane damage output. She is the true queen of the rift. When played in good hands, nobody can duel nor trade with Riven.

"She's the queen of the rift and no one can duel her" = Do you know Fiora, she gets her with regular ease.

Riven is easy, as long as your penis is small.

She is sexy!

3 Lee Sin

The endless combos you can pull off easily makes Lee Sin one of the best "outplay" champions in the game. There is a huge speed difference in ward jumping and flash kick speeds in high elo compared to low elo.

I played lee sin for 1 year, yet he is hard to master...

Lee Sin and nothing more to say

Just go and try him, you'll see.

4 Yasuo

There is so much micromanagement with this guy so I just think he's the hardest

Many low elo players call Yasuo no skill but that is them being salty that they got outplayed.

Verraldo is the best Yasuo I have ever seen.

I believe yasuo has the highest skillcap of any champion because any yasuo player has to draw the line between ballsy and stupid... and yasuo's line is a lot thinner than others.

5 Azir

If you know how to use him he is really good!

People forget he is like a zed and orianna combined which makes him harder than both of them. He also can insec combo which makes him like lee-sin. A few well placed q's, r's, and turrets win games.

Well azir is one of the hardest champions in the game. however in the right hands he is probably the champion with the most outplay potential and the best champion in the game. if you have good control than he is gonna be the champion perfect for you.

Going to respond for those who said that yasuo and riven have the highest skillcaps; first of all ad champions and crit ones especially aren't really that hard to play, sure you can "outplay someone" but yo ucan still faceroll and win the game because of lifesteal and other ad champs benefits, you can't do that on ap champs, second of all the mobility: while yasuo and riven have the highest mobility in the game azir sure have an escape that even itself is a skillshot and demands skillcap (the q e w combo), and third ad champs like zed yasuo and riven have the potential to burst and are both useful early and late game while ''the bird guy'' is only useful late with every soldier attack doing approx 400 dmg compared to trynda's 900 to 1000 and yasuo's double crit early

6 Zed

Zed has literally the highest outplaying potential out of all champions in the whole game. His basic combo is easy to pull off, but his full potential and outplaying potential is extremely difficult to pull off. Precision timing to dodge potentially devastating skills from your opponents with your ultimate, for example a Veigar, placing your shadows in the right place and knowing where they are, switching places with your shadows to dodge devastating skill shots such as an Ahri's charm, plus you have to land your skill shots to be a successful zed. His outplay potential is even higher when near walls. All of this makes him a fairly easy and boring champion to play if you want to use the same combo every time, but if you want to truly master zed's kill and outplay potential, your up for a difficult joyride.

9 Ahri

A good Ahri is probably one of the scariest things in league for me... She isn't exactly a hyper carry but if her team knows their ass from their toes, she can really ruin your day.

Once again the difference between low elo and high elo Ahris is stupendous.

You can't kill or run away from a true master of Ahri.

Ahri's E (Charm) is the kiss of death. Follow up her abilities after you land your charm early or mid game and you can win an easy kill or at the very least, burn a flash

10 Rengar

Really hard to play it

Requires good timing ofc

The Contenders

11 Fizz

A good fizz will know when to use his Q and how long

Fizz's E is so OP you can start a fight with your R, dive in, dodge the abilities like a boss, get the kill, and get out with some hp left.

Multiman Syndra Stuns are Huge in team fights, Usually you can blow up your laner with stacked Q's and Ignite but missing

12 Leblanc

If you don't know what I'm talking about go look up Faker Leblanc Plays on YouTube

With abilitie use you twice?...

13 Ekko

You need to plan your attacks seconds before it happens and factor in everything to maximize his kit.

No one has said ekko he has one of the best ults to outplay not to mention phase dive and his w you can outplay many champions

His ultimate is that get out of jail free card in Monopoly. If played properly, you can ult back into your convergence, giving you a stun and a large AOE damage hit, which you can then use to get a bunch of kills.

14 Orianna

When you first start playing Orianna she feels clunkier than your first car, but she's one of the few champions who scale with skill. A multiman ult on a well farmed Orianna WINS TEAMFIGHTS most orianna's are dreadful at hitting their ults ESPECIALLY in low ELO

15 Thresh

Really skilled champion

16 Syndra

Noob champ press R o os adc

17 Nidalee

Hard to hit spear and in most situations if u miss your spear your useless

Easily one of the strongest if you can hit spears you can do massive damage along with a missing hp% based q. Not to mention healing and the ability to jump over walls.

This OP complicated skin-changing whore is just too hard

18 Master Yi

master one

No offense everyone,actually,yi is tge strongest

19 Tryndamere

There is just so much you have to do to master Tryndamere. Clicking on people, pressing R when you're low, clicking on people... The list goes on. I'd rate him somewhere between Garen and Darius on the difficulty level.

20 Teemo

Not mechanically challenging, but requires massive game knowledge to play and avoid death/ have success

He has to strategically place shrooms to kill enemies, time his blinds and act as an adc.
