    As of V3.10, a champion's primary and secondary tags are now listed separately in the client's champion overviews. However, the champion and summoner profile on the client only select feature filters by primary attribute. The Official Champion List will use both Primary and Secondary indiscriminately when filtering by attribute.

    On April 14, 2016, Riot announced the intention to rework the Champion Classes [1]. The full list of champions was released on June 1, 2016. [2] At this time, a small number of champions are "unranked".

    In particular, the changes include:

    • The name change from Assassins to Annihilators and Supports to Controllers.
    • Adding subclass to all classes.
    • sSubstantially fewer secondary classes.

    On May 24, 2017, Riot followed up with a final draft of the planned changes. [3] At this point, the League of Legends was updated to use the new class structure.

    The changes include:

    • The Controller Disruptor subclass has been removed.
    • Added the Trapper subclass to Controller, with a substantial reorganization of supporting champions.
    • Unclassified was formally recognized as a class, conjecturally referred to on the as Specialist. This class absorbed many of the old disruptors.

    While they are not yet active within the client or on the website, Riot employees and commenters are now actively using the new class system.

    • The given Class only represents the role that a champion was explicitly designed to fulfill, and its recommended items will be geared toward fulfilling the role. However, players are free to explore any variation they wish, such as Kog'Maw  Artillery.
    • Before the class and subclass changes, there were very few champions with a single class and most of them were magicians o shooters. As of November 10, 2019, only 10 champions have secondary classes.
