League of Legends Patch 11.15 is coming very soon, and it comes as no shock that players want to know who the best picks are to carry the team, especially in the mid lane.
5 Best Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 11.15
Yet again, mid laners are going to remain widely untouched, so expect the same mid lane dominance that has been the standard for the past couple of patches. As the Patch 11.15 preview notes do not detail any serious nerfs to the game's most winningest champions, the mid lane meta will still remain relatively stagnant.
Albeit slight, there was a Syndra buff that will be included for the next patch. Her mana cost on Dark Sphere (Q) will go from 60-80 to 40-80, which in the early game may make her have some resurgence to the mid lane. That is, however, if players are going to make the combined effort to push the character to her limits again.
If a player hasn't honed in on their Katarina play, it's about time they start doing so as she's a versatile pick that requires great precision in order to play. Analyzing her strengths early on and converting it to late-game demolishing is going to take some wrinkles in the brain, but the reward for doing so pays out very well.
As with Katarina, Qiyana does have a bit of a skill ceiling in order to really understand how she fits in the team composition. However, if a player has figured her out and can effectively roam with her kit, she becomes almost as unstoppable as a Sylas player. Qiyana is definitely the go-to pick if the best two are banned.
LeBlanc is the definitive second-in-line when it comes to the best laners to play right now. With no apparent nerfs to her kit nor any of her core items nerfed, she'll likely continue to remain just behind Sylas as the best laner to play in the next patch as well.
It's unbelievable how long Sylas has remained as the undisputed mid lane pick for some patches now. Though there are some adjustments to his kit that nerfed healing on his Kingslayer (W) ability, it was only compensated back to Sylas by giving him more damage on his Chain Lash (Q) - arguably the strongest part about his kit in the first place. Don't be surprised, he's still the best, so pick or ban him and pray the balance team nerfs this man into oblivion in the future.
