AD Carry Tier List for April

teaser_medusaXbalanque comes out on top again. Hou Yi hits rock bottom. Medusa is still banned.

This tier list has the AD Carries in the duo lane ranked for the month according to their pick and ban percentages in SMITE’s Masters League.

icon_new Medusa New. These characters have been released recently and are still automatically banned from ranked or competitive play.
icon_ss — Empty — Overpowered. These characters are inherently unbalanced and have the innate ability to carry alone on any team.
icon_splus — Empty — Top-tier. These characters shape and dictate the meta and are first pick, first ban material.
icon_s Xbalanque Anhur Strong. These characters are slightly above the normal power level and make team compositions most of the time.
icon_a Rama Cupid Ullr Freya Artemis Balanced. These characters are the focal point of balance and see regular play.
icon_b Neith Chronos Apollo Vulcan Situational. These characters are not competitively viable in every situation and generally serve as counterpicks, comfort picks, or support picks.
icon_c Hou Yi AMC Poseidon Loki Chaac Mercury Weak. These characters rarely see competitive play and generally require a whole team composition built around them to function.
icon_d — Empty — Unviable. These characters are too weak to see competitive play even in the hands of masters and with the right team composition.

Notes

  • So as to avoid personal bias, this tier list is assembled using the actual pick and ban percentage for each character in this month’s Masters League (thanks to Grappul).
  • For the more esoteric or ambiguous characters in the duo lane, where data solely taken from League would misrepresent the ADC meta entirely (e.g., Poseidon in S tier due to his mid lane prowess), we relied on the showings of those characters in the Pro League, which is less than ideal. This concerns Chaac, Chronos, Freya, Loki, Mercury, Poseidon, and Vulcan.
  • In each tier the characters appear in a specific order from left to right: from most to least picked and banned.
