Hey everyone, welcome to the Mid Lane Tier List for Patch 11.21! This tier list will consist of all the current Meta Mid Laners ranked from OP tier (the best) to C tier (not viable). Please note that some lower ranked champions may peform better in Higher Elo. No tier list is perfect, and this is all opinion-based. If this Tier List happens to help you out, a vote would be appreciated so this can be shared to more people who wish to know the best and worst current mid laners. Let me know if you want me to add a note to each champion and feel free to give me some feedback on this list.

If you guys appreciate this tier list, feel free to come check out my twitch channel:


These are the current OP Champions. These  picks are by far the best champions to pick if you want to climb with due to their high potential to snowball and carry games, as well as just being very broken and over-tuned currently.



Champions that are in the meta and perform very well who are essential parts to any team. 



These are champions that are in the meta that are powerful picks in the right hands and do perform pretty well, however they are overall weaker than the S tier champions. 



Champions that are not bad choices, however are not doing as well as many other champions down to win-rate, synergies and overall effectiveness to a team.



Champions that are very bad in the mid lane meta right now. Do not touch these champions if you're trying to climb.

Yse to be honest the neew patch mid lane tier list is a bit different i think you should switch some of them to the lower bracket. But it's not bad to bee honest very nice guide and accurate. Everything is accuratee for top midd laners to carry solo games nicee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a new patch, so Zed and Akshan can be switched now.

Wheres my boy gragas he should easily be c to b tier also I feel lis should also be c to b tier and Doesn't Ryze have the worst win rate in the entire game how is he not a c tier?

Pantheon should go S tier

I'm gonna go ahead and say it, but I don't think zed is op tier, I believe he fits S tier. He is very strong, but in my opinion what's keeping him from being op, is the fact that his team fight capabilities aren't good, and he has an energy bar. He can't just blindly use his abilities like katarina, talon and qiyana, he has to plan it ahead of time. He's an assassin that's only good for like 2 kills, and when those 2 kills are up he's low on energy or on cooldown. Plus his ult is very predictable if you've played against him a few times. But yes I think zed is a very strong champ, just not op tier.

this is no but i don't really agree with some of these like for ex akali should be in S and Op tier due to her carrying the most when it comes to mid lane and shes a broken champ
Fimburd | September 8, 2021 8:19am
Nice list.
Karinutsa (7) | September 8, 2021 3:30am
I really think Akali belongs in the S tier, while Veigar and Zoe in the A tier.

This is because even if Akali was nerfed, she still is a major threat to any squishy mid laner. She has 4 dashes and the W that acts like some kind of shield, so give her more credit.
Veigar is depending on the stacks, but mid is a solo lane, so it is quite easy for him to get the AP to an incredible high number. Plus he has the R that executes anyone. ;)
Zoe is a hard to play champ, in my opinion. But in the hands on a good player, a single Q takes 1/4 of your HP at Zoe under level 6. Her ulti has an extremely low cooldown and it can be used to make the Q travel longer and deal up to half of the life of a squishy mid laner.

So yeah, that's my opinion and arguments to sustain it. :) Let me know what do you think.

Thank you for your opinions

When it comes to Akali, yes she is always a big threat but she is not on the same level as other assassin's right now like Diana, Katarina, Talon etc, however I do feel as I was harsh with her being in B tier so I've moved her up to A

With Zoe, the new patch has only just came out so I want to see how her win rate and play rate does this patch before moving her up / down

Veigar has insane scaling, but not many winning matchups which makes it hard for him to get to the mid / late game.
akalidatgirl | September 8, 2021 3:25pm
i kinda agree but she can def beat Katarina and Diana nerfed or not you just gotta be a good player and have the right build
Karinutsa (7) | September 8, 2021 11:36am
Aaaa, I see where you are coming from now. :)

I forgot to mention: How about Fizz though? He has that escape so good, he is more like an S to me.

man, azir is so bad and it is so hard that it hurts
EvoNinja7 (18) | August 10, 2021 1:24am
Can you explain why Le Blanc is in the OP tier, because I've never really seen her and I want to know just in case I end up laning against her.
Tremic (4) | August 10, 2021 4:37am
In short, all the buffs she's recieved this season has helped her out massively. She is able to one shot almost anyone in the game, very slipery, great in teamfights, good 1v1 / 1v2 potential, very high snowball potential and a lot more. For me she's very strong atm but some may disagree.
EvoNinja7 (18) | August 13, 2021 3:37am
Ah ok, thanks for that!
