Which Mid Lane Picks Are Strong in LoL Patch 11.1?

5. Katarina (Win Rate: 49.0%)

Katarina has some of the highest DPS in League of Legends. She is an amazing pick for anyone who wants to carry their team to victory, though she is a high skillcap champion. She can be played as AD or AP depending on her match up. Katarina can easily escape rough situations thanks to her E, which is good to have in case of a gank from the enemy jungler.

4. Yone (Win Rate: 48.8%)

Yone is a strong assassin pick this patch. Sure, he and his brother had fallen off a little, but they’re back to their winning shenanigans and Yone is just a great pick when wanting to play aggressively and takedown squishy opponents in skirmishes around the mid lane. He can build both AP and AD for mixed damage, which makes it difficult to itemize against him.

3. Anivia (Win Rate: 53.3%)

Thanks to the buffs Anivia received a few patches ago she has become one of the best control mages in League of Legends. Sure, she got dialed back with patch 10.25, but it wasn’t nearly enough to stop her. Her auto attacks are a decent speed, which let her farm into the late game, where, with a bit of Ability Haste, she can have her ultimate up over and over.

2. Ekko (Win Rate: 52.3%)

Ekko has become one of the best mid laners with this patch. His E - Q combo is key. Press E, then Q which resets your E. Do this over and over to slowly destroy your opponents in lane. Ekko isn’t a champion who likes to be played passively. Be aggressive when you play him, especially once he has his ultimate, since he can always reset back to safety.

In the late game, Ekko can jump into the enemy backline and take out his opponents that way since he has an easy escape tool thanks to his ultimate. Once he’s got a bit of Ability Haste built up he can also use it multiple times, which makes him a strong and safe pick for the mid lane.

1. Fizz (Win Rate: 52.8%)

Fizz is a slippery little fellow. He has made it to the number one spot this patch, thanks to his amazing burst damage and the mobility in his kit. He is a champion who just cannot get ganked, thanks to his E. So in the laning phase, hold onto it, just in case the enemy jungler is brave enough to try a gank.

Fizz also has a great deal of burst damage and his ultimate can one-shot squishy opponents in the late game. Fizz can easily sneak into the backline of a fight and take down the opponents' carry champions. He is also a great snowballing champion, who can take a tiny lead and expand it with every little in-game win.
