Nocturne 1 100.00%
Nunu 1 100.00%
Sion 1 100.00%

Morgana 2 50.00%
Gnar 92 45.70%
Hecarim 90 45.60%
Shen 29 41.40%

Interestingly, none of the top 10 solo queue win rate champions see play in competitive, other than Irelia.

Some of the most successful picks in competitive are actually pocket picks. Of commonly picked champions, Gnar, Hecarim, and Shen all have quite poor win rates in spite of many tries.

Here's another chart for competitive play, disregarding the 10 games minimum

Champion Games Played Win Rate
Wukong 1 100.00%
Zac 3 100.00%
Jarvan IV 12 66.70%
Olaf 6 66.70%
Gragas 180 56.70%
Rek'Sai 186 52.70%
Nunu 30 50.00%
Xin Zhao 2 50.00%
Evelynn 73 47.90%
Nidalee 44 47.70%
Rengar 7 42.90%
Sejuani 62 40.30%
Ekko 25 40.00%
Lee Sin 38 34.20%
Fizz 2 0.00%
Nautilus 1 0.00%
Nocturne 3 0.00%
Vi 1 0.00%
Volibear 2 0.00%

Azingy's 3/3 win rate on Zac accounts for all of the champion's picks this split

For jungle, we don't even have 10 champions with more than 10 games played. Majority of games on Gragas/Rek'Sai (180 and 186 respectively.)

Very few junglers have seen competitive success. Only 7 junglers have a 50%+ win rate, and 3 of those (Wukong, Zac, and Olaf) have seen almost all their games at the hands of a single player. (Fr3deric played the lone Wukong game, Azingy's Zac has already been discussed, and ReignOver has gone 3/3 on Olaf.)

Kassadin 47.80% 23
Orianna 45.80% 24
Ezreal 45.50% 11
Lulu 44.40% 36

Some of the more notable new picks, Ezreal and Jayce, have sub-par win rates. However, this may come from a small sample size/players learning the champion.

Only Twisted Fate and Ahri top both the competitive and solo queue win lists, but both champions are seen somewhat infrequently in competitive play. When we remove the 10 game limit, Diana also shows up with a 6/7 record.

Here's another chart for competitive play, disregarding the 10 games minimum

Champion Games Played Win Rate
Ezreal 20 60.00%
Sivir 196 57.10%
Kalista 87 56.30%
Jinx 41 56.10%

Draven 3 33.30%
Tristana 20 30.00%
Lucian 63 28.60%
Varus 6 16.70%

Ezreal has a surprisingly high win rate in competitive play (AD Carry stats are tracked separately from mid stats)

Although Urgot has fallen out of the meta, his strong win rate suggests that pros perhaps shouldn't be so fast to move away from the anti-carry.

Sivir is probably the strongest champion in the meta right now. Now other champion boasts the same fantastic win rate in spite of so many games played. In nearly 200 tries, Sivir still maintains a 57% win rate. She also tops the solo queue win rate charts.
