5 Best Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 11.19

Sylas is receiving some buffs after only being out of play for a short time. Nonetheless, these buffs will likely put him back on top as his history of dominance is strong.

2. Twisted Fate

Twisted Fate has been common in professional play for a couple patches now due to his map presence. The thing that has made him quite strong recently is the addition of Rapid Firecannon to his build, which makes his Gold card range higher than normal. With this, he is a top pick in the mid lane in Patch 11.19.

In a meta where AP dominates, Galio is the perfect pick to control the mid lane and counter gank roaming enemies. He is receiving a buff in Patch 11.19 that we expect to make him a strong pick.

Ryze is finally being nerfed after being one of the most common mid lane picks in pro play this season. However, it looks like his base stats and utility will still be strong enough to be a top five pick.

5. Akali

Akali is receiving base stat buffs as well that may put her in line with the top assassins for Patch 11.19. Don't sleep on this assassin because her potential with these buffs is going to be high!
