League of Legends (LoL) Question: What is the status of Leblanc mid?

    What is the status of Leblanc mid?

    I'm considering picking up Leblanc as my 16th champion, and I play mainly AP mid. How viable is she at this point in the metagame? I know she is often banned out against Reginald, which makes me suspect that she is very playable against certain champs if you're good with her. Is she a solid counterpick to certain champions or does she fall off too hard in the lategame to be viable at all?

    Viability depends on the player, but LeBlanc will wreck most ap casters mid, barring a few who can outplay you and how good you are with your passive as LeBlanc.

    LeBlanc works like this.
    • Didn't crush your lane and get fed? GG
    • Didn't gank top and bot lane? GG
    • The enemy dragged the game out to late-game? GG

    People don't like her because she can't farm well or clear waves. However, this is balanced out by her high single target damage output. Her sole purpose is to win the game by the 20 minute mark by crushing your lane, ad then ganking and crushing the side lanes to force a surrender or a very fast win. If you can't do this, then she falls off very quickly because she only does single target damage. Tanky, AOE comps are the meta now.

    This means she's a walking Mejai's Soulstealer. If you like high risk, high reward play and ganking frequently, LeBlanc is for you.

    Do note that strong lane pushers counter LeBlanc because she can't farm well under the turret or mitigate your burst through some form of shield. Counters are Morgana and Galio. There are probably a few more I'm not aware of.

    The thing with lb is yeah shes great and does counter some people, BUT she can be countered quite easy herself by most champs with wave clear. Make sure to not pick her first in ranked. I find that when you play lb enough and get to know her she can win almost any lane. If you cant win you'r lane get blue push out the wave and go get kills bot. You learn lb see can be a killer.

    I wouldn't suggest to pick her. It's a 50/50 gamble. You can get fed and carry your team on your own or the enemy feeds on you and you can't do anything anymore. I suggest safer picks for ranked play but for normal games she can be fun.

    She can be a counterpick to Orianna and stuff.
    But she only fits into a premade, otherwise you end up owning everything till a certain minutemark.

    If you are playing LeBlanc often you can probably kill every other mid laner cept of a few exceptions.
    But unfortunately she does not fit into the meta, not enough AoE or Tankyness
