This page will always show the latest Teamfight Tactics Origin List for competitive play, and is designed to rank Origins in terms of their strength in the current meta. Although some are considered niche or balanced, those that aren't higher tiers shouldn't be considered poor. While any match can be won with any Origin combination, this list is designed to present you with the strongest to weakest.

Tier List Descriptions

Tier S+ - Greatly Overpowered. Units who define the meta and are considered top tier. 

Tier S - Overpowered. Units which define the meta, and are often first pick material for any effective draft.

Tier A - Balanced. These units should see few if any changes and are considered balanced. Important for their defined strategies.

Tier B - Slightly Underpowered. These units require a niche composition, or a highly skilled player. They can be substituted frequently other units.

Tier C - Underpowered. Considered weak, team compositions generally need to be built around a units in this pool. Rarely, if ever, seen in competitive play. 

Tier D Greatly Underpowered. These units are a liability and should be avoided.
