Outside of the top players of the world we have the Champions that allow those individuals to break boundaries and hyper carry the team to the enemy Nexus without fail. Each lane has a job, Top, Mid, Jungle, ADC, and Support. Each Champion has a role to play in those lanes. Some, however, can do their job much more efficiently than others. Here I present my list of the most powerful Champions who fall in the category of “God Tier” respectively for each lane and their story.
Top Lane- Ekko
First on our list comes from the rough streets of Zaun itself, Ekko, “the boy who shattered time.” Ekko spends most of his time running with the “The Lost Children of Zaun” regardless of how tough the streets are. Ekko will endure anything to keep his friends safe from danger. Ekko can accomplish this by pushing his limits with Haste time and time again. He can warp time, and manipulate any given situation so that the odds are in his favor to win. He explores various different possibilities and reality. Experimenting with multi-dimensional possibilities with the Zero Drive, Ekko’s invention, a device that allows its creator to manipulate time to fit the situation. Time after time again and again.
Jungle Lane- Rengar
Rengar, the trophy hunter, tirelessly looks for greater game. Heads, claws, horns, and fangs adorn his den from the lethal creatures of Valoran. He takes his time with every hunt, studying his prey, learning, waiting for his next encounter. Rengar never knew his mother and father. Abandoned to a sole human who was revered to as a legendary hunter. The “Feral Human” took in Rengar as his pupil. Rengar absorbed the lessons of his father, even improving upon them with his feral instincts. Before his fathers eyes, he claimed a vast amount of territory. Along the perimeter he mounts the skulls of his slain prey to warn off aggressors. But no beast proved worthy or even came close to challenging him in his domain. Rengar, feeling unsatisfied, believing that there was no longer any worthwhile game remaining, felt he would never again feel the thrill of the hunt. Just when things seemed their bleakest, a strange and disturbing Alien emerged. Out of place in this world, it bore great scythes and devoured any animal that would get in its way. In a desperate greed of a challenge he ambushed the creature with his haste. Their fight was gruesome with each suffering crippling wounds from one another. Rengar lost an eye, but his greatest wound was his pride. The following days he was in great pain, but with filled with joy because the hunt was on…
Rengar “pray on the weak and you will survive, pray on the strong and you will live.”

As an infant she was abandoned on the doorstep of Ionian adoption house, nestled atop an ancient instrument in an exquisite case of unknown origins. Sona was a well behaved child and was unusually quiet and content. Her caretakers were sure she would find a home quickly, but they mistook her unusual quite behavior as an inability to speak.
