Well, I have a lot of junglers and know how to play them well. But I am lacking in the Mid Lane department. I own quite a few mid laners, but don't play them that well because I am usually jungling. Anyway, I am looking to start playing mid lane more and wanna commit to learning a strong mid laner. What suggestions do you guys have?
Mid Lane champs owned: Annie, Evelynn, Fiddlesticks, Janna, Jayce, Karthus, Katarina, Master Yi, Morgana, Ryze, Sion, Twisted Fate, Veigar, Zilean.
TLDR: I want to learn a strong mid lane champ. Which one is the strongest at the 800 ELO level in your opinion?
You're playing a game of picks and counter picks, and it makes no sense to assume the other team is always going to be trash, even at low ELO's.
Pick an anti-caster (Katarina, Veigar, Morganna), a hard built caster (Karthus, Annie, Ryze) and a soak (Morg, again, Sion) and you're good.
Eve's always a great pick just because of how versatile she is in placement (she can mid, jungle, and go top against certain picks) but she's not strictly any of the above. Mastery with more characters is always better as there is no be-all, end-all of any role.
