New Champion Duo Statistics

Ever wondered which champion combinations are most successful in competitive play? The newest Oracle’s Elixir stats tables are here to help!

I’ve added five new pages with games played, win rate, and a few other numbers for champion combinations in related roles. These stats cover the 2015 Summer Split across the NA and EU LCS, LCK, and LMS. Hit the links to see the stats:

Top + Jungle duos
Top + Mid duos
Jungle + Support duos
Mid + ADC duos
ADC + Support duos

Note: LPL games are not included since the LPL does not release its match data. Only pairings played together at least three times this split are included.

NA, EU, and LCK Gold Difference Charts

The graphs below chart gold differences over time in LCS teams’ last six games (weeks 6 through 8 of the 2015 Summer Split) and in LCK teams’ last two weeks (weeks 8 and 9 of the 2015 Summer Split).

Note: The timelines only run to 50 minutes, even if a game went longer.
