The mid lane is one of the most important positions on the map. Good mid lane champions are able to quickly dispose of minion waves, freeing them to roam around the map. Mid lane champions also are influential in getting picks and in setting up kills in team fights. With that in mind, here are the worst five mid laners in patch 11.3.

5 Worst Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 11.3


Lux is a champion that can be flexed to multiple positions. However, as a mid lane champion, Lux tends to fall behind. Lux has a very slow wave clear and can easily be jumped on if she's not careful. Her Final Spark (R) ability comes out quickly, but it's fairly avoidable. Lux also has Light Binding (Q) which roots enemies. However, the move is fairly predictable, especially if used from a distance.


Akali's biggest issue is her health bar. Akali can deal a lot of damage at early levels and force some mid lane champions to play safe. However, unless Akali is building armor or life steal, she won't have much health for fights later in the round. Also, Akali in team fights is only prevalent because of damage output. With no initial and safe engage, Akali has to wait for a setup to come through.


Ryze is mostly a top lane champion that can be flexed to mid. His minion wave clear is slow in comparison to most other mid lane champions. Ryze gets outranged fairly easily by a handful of mid lane mages. Also, his Realm Warp (R) ability is hard to time properly, and it fills the same role of the summoner spell Teleport.

Nunu & Willump

Nunu & Willump is usually a jungle champion who can flex to mid lane if need be. The problem is, Nunu & Willump get easily outranged by any mid lane mage. While Nunu & Willump have a little bit of life steal in their kit to survive longer in fights, they aren't strong enough at early levels to contest with most other mid laners.
