League of Legends Patch 11.21 is going to hit servers this week. Patch 11.21 will be released on Wednesday, Oct. 20 with many confirmed changes finally shifting the meta away from replicating the competitive meta at Worlds. With an infamous champion getting a significant buff, here are the five best mid laners in League of Legends Patch 11.21.

5 Best Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 11.21

1. Twisted Fate

Twisted Fate is one of the highest priority picks in the World championship this year, and for good reason. The evolution of his build turning into a focus on long-distance stuns and pressure means that this champion can create picks for his team at ease.

2. Teemo

This may be a bit of a call, but Teemo will likely become a strong pick even in the mid lane with his upcoming buffs. Against mages, the new Teemo will likely have no trouble in the laning phase and can transition into dominating the map with his mushrooms.

3. LeBlanc

Perkz destroying on LeBlanc is showing the world again why this champion is so strong. LeBlanc can nuke an enemy champion from a screen away and make it out alive, lending her a spot in the top five mid laners.

4. Sylas

Sylas is still having great success, but nowadays this success is predicated less on Sylas' old playstyle of over-healing in every fight he takes. The best Sylas players are now able to correctly utilize his ability to steal enemy ults and use them better than their original users.

5. Syndra

Syndra is seeing a resurgence in play due to the mid lane meta evolving past assassins. Now that the AD assassins have begun to shift to other lanes, Syndra has been able to takeover games with her ability to nuke enemies in the late game.
