These days, AD assassins become more and more popular in the middle lane.

Since a team needs to have both physical damage output as magical damage output, somewhere should be the AP carry.

So what if AD assassins take over mid, where will the AP carry go?
Will the AD carry be no longer necessary due to the AD assassin, and will the AP carry go with a support?
Or will the AP carry go top instead of a bruiser?

I have really no idea, I believe AP carry + support could be very interesting especially when the support has CC since a lot of AP carries also have CC, which will create combinations.

What's your opinion about it?

AP Carry could go top, such Vlad/Rumble or they could go in the jungle, like Diana or Fiddles.

They can still go mid, they just have to be more strategic about when to be picked.

I think this will be the great return of Mordekaiser. Es Brazil number uno. His Iron Man stops bursting from work and after Hextech Revolver the lane is won for him. He can also push very hard to prevent them from roaming. And a cloned AD Assasin can hurt aswell.

They won't go anywhere. Armour is worthless against BC + LW.

You can go mid if you pick the right AP or if you don't play like you're versus another ranged AP.


Not even sure who mentioned Anivia, only AD Mid that could be truly troublesome is Kha'Zix if you don't get greedy.

Jungle them.

Annie and Brand could probably do it with a good leash.

Eve can do it, Shaco can, Elise can as well, etc.

normally if someone wants to run an AD assassin mid lane i play singed top so that we have some magic damage, rumble and vlad top with an AD assassin would get you the magic damage you need too

So there will not really be a standard spot then for AP carries, just depends on which champ?

Like jungle: Fid, Elise or stuff
Top like: Swain, Galio etc.
Mid anyway: Anivia, Veigar and whatever

Too bad, I was kind of looking forward to see AP carrys with supports :D
