I have started playing ranked 5's, and have been wondering how viable do you think Lux/mid is in ranked. Her long CDs do seem to be more of a crutch compared to many other choices. i really enjoy how she plays and that even tho her support isn't much it's there.

I suppose if all else fails i'll just keep my Ryze mid im comfortable with him or maybe Ahri.

Average at best, Ahri and Ryze are considerably stronger.

She has damage/ AP ratios comparable to Morgana but far less CC. She's weaker in teamfights but works in extended skirmishes due to long range and easy kiting skills.

It hurts me to say this, but both Ahri and Ryze are better in mid than Lux.
However the advantage Lux has, is underestimation. Recently they buffed her quite a bit (lolled) and she has that shield... which saves so many lives if used correctly.

But those 3 are so different... Ryze has his tankiness, Ahri has her mobility and Lux has her range/burst.
Lastly: If you want to, just try Lux out in a few Normal Drafts, and see how you do.

That's what i think i'll end up doing, playing her against team comps that im confident i can do well against.

Im also thinking about investing in Ziggs. I know he had some nerfs recently but they were inevitable.

And thank you for feedback everyone.

Lux is completely viable in ranked games, Chu8 is the living proof. :v

This is happening less and less. Since the buff, I've seen so many people play lux that it's rather insane.

Didn't you say she was one of the worst mid picks in the game like a month ago?

No, I was always of the opinion that Lux is completely ok.

...********.

But yes, she is viable. Just not a top pick by any means.
