League of Legends (LoL) Question: Looking to fill out my champion pool

    Looking to fill out my champion pool

    I'm currently working on maining the middle lane. I have a champion pool of Neeko and Zoe, and I'm really enjoying both of them. I know their win conditions well, and I know which one to pick in 99% of situations but I'm struggling against mobile and scaling champions (like Yasuo or Zed).
    So, I'm looking to round my champion pool out and add one more champion. I'm thinking either a good scaling or highly mobile champion might be good in order to counter the weaknesses, but I'm not sure since both zoe and neeko are kinda bursty. Could anyone offer me some suggestions since I'm struggling at finding a champion that will remain a reliable mid pick for a long time, but also has the qualities I'm looking for.

    Try AP Malphite mid. He's easy to pick up and counters both of the champions you mentioned. He's also bursty like your other picks.

    There isn't really a situation where you'll need to have a late game scaling champion in your pool. Solo queue isn't coordinated enough to reliably reach late game. If you play your champion well, you should be able to build a lead in the early and mid game.

    Orianna, Ahri and Qiyana are in my opinion midlane dominators no matter your enemy. All 3 of them take a good amount of practice to get decent with though.

    malzahar is a good option as well. with a good jungle and also utility for late game to shutdown enemy carries.

    In general, when people ask what new champions they should pick up, I have two suggestions. Either pick a champion that's similar to what you already play (such as picking up Lux when you already play Morgana) or, as you mentioned, find someone who can shore up your weaknesses (such as Soraka to be able to provide healing, which I can't do as Morgana.)

    In your case specifically, I would either suggest Veigar, whose Event Horizon keeps those pesky Assassins off your case and scales into late game at a ridiculous rate. He's also decently easy to learn, and a lot like Neeko and Zoe (though less mobile)

    For covering up your weaknesses, I would actually suggest Mordekasier. Though he's not picked in mid lane often, he's sucessful there, and is both ridiculously tanky and an AP carry. His Death's Grasp and Realm of Death makes him hard to escape from, and Indestructible makes it so a percentage of the damage you deal (and take) can be healed while still in combat, making you outsustain most assassins.

    Lastly, I find ARAM a great place to try out new champions. To be fair, it's not always indicative of how good a champion is, but it's good at helping you find champions whose playstyle you enjoy.

    Hopefully that helps!

    If you are good at mele, then i can suggest you to go for akali or katarina. You can look for zed too. But all the things depend how mobile you are in game. Lux is also good for easy play mid. rest is all up to you.

    It isn't a common pick. But I play against, especially Yasuo and Zed, that champion section Kennen. The fact that both champs are meelee and you can fight meelee too makes Kennen such a good pick. You've got insane damage early/mid and late game. You bully them when you play correctly. Not to forget, he is an insane team fighter. As soon as you get ulted by Zed, activate your E, then use your W and try to stun your target as often as possible. Same thing when you face Yasuo. PM me if you want to know more. Hope I could help.

    I would suggest playing Ahri. She's strong, easy to play, and safe to pick up. During the late game (if you don't mess up early), she has really great mobility & can pretty much 1shot most champions anyways, would suggest it.

    Veigar might be a good choice for u. He scales well into the late game, and his E is a good zoning tool and nightmare for mobile assassins with dashes like Akali, Yasuo etc... Also, in a really tough lane, u can use u r Q and W to farm from a safe distance.
