Mid Lane Tier List (January 2022)

Mid Lane Tier

Following our League of Legends Tier List, let’s also check out the Mid Lane Tier List of the infamous multiplayer online battle arena game. Read on!

Last updated: January 2022

To some, especially casual gamers who are in it solely for the fun of it all, mid-lane is one of the easiest roles to carry in the world’s leading MOBA game, League of Legends. That’s because being in the middle lets players roam other areas of the map freely. This helps some mid-liners deal a lot of damage and influence the game more coz of how accessible the map can be. Additionally, their great position also affords them plenty of opportunities to assist players in other lanes and those farming in the Jungle. 

With new game patches being released every so often, it can be pretty difficult for casual gamers to keep up with the top-tier characters and the flavor-of-the-month champs. This is the reason why we’ve decided to come up with a Mid Lane Tier List to help you, my fellow gamers!


Based on Patch 11.15, we will be dividing our Mid Lane champions into five different categories, namely S, A, B, C, and D. Those that belong to the S-Tier are godlike. Meaning to say, they are great in almost every situation and are currently one of the highly favored champs. A-Tier mid-liners are the ones you’d go for if you are hesitant about going for an S-Tier champion. They work well in solo queues and are easy to learn and win with most of the time. 

Characters that fall under the B-Tier are average and would likely require a significant amount of practice to master. More often than not, C-Tier mid-liners are chosen during highly specific scenarios, for they require a great deal of skill from the players to shine truly. Finally, those in the D-Tier are the ones you can shy away from. They do not provide much benefit to those who play them and may only have a niche use. 

That’s a lengthy one! IKR. Now, let go straight to our list! 🔽

Making the Most Out of Your Chosen Mid Laner

Generally, there are two different types of mid-lane champions: the casters and the assassins. The Casters are usually the ones who become AP Carrys, while the Assassins tend to become AD — although they can sometimes be AP as well. 

Now that you have an idea on who to pick, you can make the most out of your playing experience by knowing and having three things: your champion’s item build, their skill priority, and your game plan. Having a full understanding of the first two can help you come up with a game plan that will make your experience all the more fun and allow you to support your team most effectively and efficiently possible. 


There are a million reasons League of Legends continues to be enjoyed by millions of players- including me! Not only do they stoke the competitive nature of players through fast-paced games that are regularly updated, but they also made a comeback for the well-loved URF (Ultra Rapid Fire) mode. Check out what’s new in URF with our URF Tier List and for sure it also boasts many cool, powerful, and exciting champions, such as the ones listed in our Mid Lane Tier List.
