[Top 15] LoL Best Mid Player In The World

[Top 15] LoL Best Mid Player In The World
We are the best of the best!

We've arrived at the lane that is most likely the most difficult in the game since they made the jungle so much easier. When it comes to the middle, you have to do everything. If one of your lanes is falling behind, you must go and help them. If your jungler is being attacked or fighting near your lane, you must go and assist. Furthermore, depending on the champion you're playing, you must either eliminate the enemy backline or ensure that your team can survive. To put it another way, there is a lot to do when playing this lane.

However, in this article, I will list the players who have mastered this role and are simply incredible at it. These players are well-versed in their lane and the champions they are currently playing. I'll also mention the champions that these amazing players are known for, as well as their mid-lane playstyle. Not everyone has the same playstyle, but perhaps you can pick up a few of the tricks and trips that these players have and improve your game, allowing you to rank higher than everyone else. So, let's get started!

15. Marek “Humanoid” Brázda

“AP champs are my jam.” 

Marek Brázda, or "Humanoid" as most people know him, is our first player on this list. The player managed to achieve an  achievement in his home country by becoming the Czech Republic's first player to compete in the World Championship. Not only that, but he was the first player from the Czech Republic to win a LEC title, and he qualified for the World Championship three times in a row. Humanoid, he enjoys playing AP champions such as Azir, Taliyah, and Syndra.

All of these champions allow him to quickly crowd-control large enemies and push waves, which is what he bases his playstyle on. If you ever wanted to improve your game and possibly even learn some proper wave management, I recommend watching how this player does it. He is currently a member of "Fnatic," but he began his career with "Dark Tigers" in 2015. Soon after, he joined another team, and he kept switching, but each time he switched a team, his gameplay improved and he became a better player.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LEC Summer 2021 - 1st place (94,908$).
  • LEC Spring 2021 - 1st place (95,190$).

14. Felix “Abbedagge” Braun

“I ain’t letting my jungler die.” 

Next, we have Felix Braun or Abbedagge, a German player who currently plays for 100 Thieves. Abbedagge began his professional career in 2016 with "Mysterious Monkeys," but after only six months with the team, he left to join another. This player, like the previous one, kept switching teams until he finally got to where he wanted to be. It's as if he was rising through the ranks. One interesting fact about the player is that he got his nickname from a unit in "Age Of Empires," and it has stuck with him ever since.

It was a unit voice line. When he plays well, the player can be so badass that fans nickname him "Fakerdagge." However, this comes at a cost because he has a nickname when he plays poorly, which is "Abbedoggy." Ryze and Syndra are two of the champions he excels at. He has a similar playstyle to the previous player in that he pushes waves and gets gold while also assisting and rotating around the map when his teammates need him.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCS Summer 2021 - 1st place (100,000$).
  • LCS Summer 2022 - 2nd place (50,000$).

13. Henrik “Froggen” Hansen

“I ain’t letting you escape.” 

Technically, this professional player is not yet retired, but he does not play for any team; instead, he creates content for a team called "Luminosity Gaming." During his professional career, he established himself as the best current Anivia player in the world, a title he still holds. Many of his fans regard him as the best, even though he does not compete in any major tournaments. When it comes to his playstyle, he prefers to farm in the mid-lane. It's built around that. You can carry the match if you have gold and items.

The player also used to play Corki mid-lane before the champion's mid-meta. Some even claim that he invented it. As we can see, he built quite a reputation for himself while competing in major tournaments, but he also won a ton of tournaments and took first place in many of them with his team. This player wasn't always a mid-laner; he used to play bruiser champions in the jungle or top lane. But when he was in Korea, his teammates forced him to play mid-lane, and that's when he picked it up. It's quite amazing.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • European Masters Spring 2018 - 1st place (49,460$).
  • EU LCS Summer 2014 - 1st place (50,000$).

12. Enrique “xPeke” Cedeño Martínez 

“Come at me.”

Our first retired professional player on the list is the legend himself, xPeke. xPeke began his career in 2010 with "Team-Birth," but left after a year to join another team. He kept changing teams until he landed a job with "Origen." xPeke is another professional player who used to be a top-lane main before switching to the mid-lane. Throughout his professional career, the player was best known for his portrayal of assassins such as Katarina, Fizz, Kassadin, and Diana.

Because he primarily played assassins, his playstyle centered on one-shotting opponents with low HP or going to the back line to eliminate the ADC and support if possible. Despite being a mid-lane player, his favorite champion of all time was and probably still is Morgana. Because of the legacy he left behind, he was featured as a side character in one of the 2020 World Championship promotional music videos. Which, in my opinion, is quite badass, and the player went out with a bang. 

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • EU LCS Spring 2016 - 2nd place (28,175$).
  • EU LCS Summer 2015 - 2nd place (25,000$).

11. Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer 

“My style is full AP.”

This player is well-versed in languages, speaking French, Turkish, and English fluently. What is the significance of this? Because that's badass af, and the majority of people, including myself, don't even know their primary language that well. Nisqy is still an active player who is currently playing for the "MAD Lions" as their mid-laner. The player is also so skilled at the game that he does not use the standard QWERTY keyboard layout, instead opting for the AZERTY style.

He got the nickname Nisqy by flipping his real name Yasin upside down and adding a Q instead of an A. AP champions became quite popular with the player during his professional career as a mid-laner, and most of them became his signature ones. But the most well-known are Ryze, Zoe, and Cassiopeia. These are very powerful champions, and most people aren't as good as he is with them. The player was also a mid-laner for "Fnatic" before moving to "Mad Lions" when his contract expired.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LEC Summer 2021 - 1st place (59,317$).
  • LCS Spring 2020 - 1st place (100,000$).

10. Kim “Zeka” Geon-woo

“I ain’t stopping, I got so much more to prove.”

Kim Geon-woo, also known as Zeka, is the most recent player to enter the professional scene, having won the Worlds Championship 2022 and performing admirably against Faker. He's only ranked tenth because he's so young and we haven't seen much of him perform yet. But once he does, I'll bump him up even higher on the list. This player has a lot to prove, and he's not going to stop. He only began his professional career with "KT Academy" in 2019 and later joined "DRX" to win Worlds 2022. 

He joined a new team called "Hanwha Life" later this year. He is a living legend. He joined a team and then left without explaining why. A true Giga chad in the professional League of Legends scene, and that's pretty badass. He uses a variety of champions, but mostly AP champions because they are the most comfortable for his playstyle. He enjoys farming until he is ready to fight in team fights and enjoys assisting his teammates when they need it so that he can roam without losing too much.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • 2022 World Championship - 1st place (489,500$).
  • LCK Regional Finals 2022 - 2nd place (Worlds 2022 Invite).

9. Joseph Joon “jojopyun” Pyun

“My journey has just begun.”

This player has made a name for himself. He's probably the newest player on this list, having joined "Noble Esports" in 2020 before joining "Evil Geniuses" in 2021 and still playing for them. Before beginning his professional League of Legends career, the player used to stream snipe popular streamers such as Tfue, eventually defeating him in a 1v1 match. After completing his stream sniping career, he turned his attention to the League of Legends professional gaming scene. He is also the first North American or Canadian mid-laner to win the LCS.

Not only that, but he is also the youngest player in League of Legends history to win the LCS. His career has only just begun, and he's already showing so much promise. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us because that's just badass. When it comes to champions, the player's favorites are Akali and Viktor. The player also full-dived under a turret to kill Bjergsen because he wouldn't let him get away with low HP. That is also his playing style. It's risky, but in his situation, it pays off handsomely. I don't recommend adopting this playstyle to yourself until you're certain you can pull it off without dying.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCS Spring 2022 - 1st place (100,000$).
  • NA Champions Queue Spring 2022 - Split 1 - 1st place (12,000$).

8. Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg

“I got a champ for almost any situation.” 

Bjergsen, the professional player who loves lasagna, is next on our list. He's made quite a name for himself. He demonstrated that he can easily carry games and is an excellent mid-lane player. He is Danish and currently plays for the NA team 100 Thieves. Throughout his professional career, he has made a name for himself through his skill and service on the Summoner's Rift. He despises Shaco more than anything else in the game because he is a mid-lane player. 

Bjergsen has a plethora of champions, but his most well-known are Zilean, Syndra, and Taliyah. He won't always pick the same champion, but he will choose a champion who is needed in the current situation. He has a large pool of champions. That's also his play style. The player is also such a badass that he is considered a living breathing legend who is still active in the professional scene. The player also received 22 out of 25 bans in the series during the 2020 play-offs, but he still proved that he is not to be trifled with.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCS Lock-in 2022 - 1st place (150,000$).
  • LCS Summer 2020 - 1st place (100,000$).

7.  Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen

“Ain’t nobody opposing me.”

Nioclaj Jensen, or simply Jensen, is another Danish player who is currently playing for the NA team "Cloud 9." The player is frequently compared to Bjergsen because they are both Danish players who play the same positions. Not only that, but they are constantly competing against each other for first place in tournaments. But, unlike Bjergsen, Jensen's champion pool isn't as diverse, but he does have a playstyle that focuses on either farming a lot until late-game or eliminating people with assassins.

He's best known for his Veigar, Zed, and Fizz, but he can also play Azir when needed. During his professional career, he also left "Cloud 9" after losing LCS three times in a row and joined "Team Liquid." He returned to "Cloud 9" after winning the LCS with "Team Liquid." Which, if you ask me, is just a chad move. Jensen also won first place in a football match organized by Riot Games. xPeke, Rekkles, Soaz, and Fredy122 made up his team.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCS Summer 2022 - 1st place (100,000$).
  • LCS Lock-In 2021 - 1st place (150,000$).

6. Zhuo “knight” Ding

“Watchu want.”

Zhuo Ding, also known as "knight," is widely regarded as one of the best mid-laners in 2019 and possibly even 2020. During that time, he performed flawlessly and demonstrated his true potential on the Summoner's Rift. The player is known for his 1v9 skills and his ability to carry a match without issue. He's also well-known for buying "Mejai Soulstealer" whenever he gets the chance because it grants a massive amount of AP. As a result, he prefers AP champions in the mid-lane and rarely chooses an AD champion like Qiyana.

He's well-known among AP champions for his Ryze and Zoe because he has the highest win rate among those champions. He focuses on one-shotting people and removing them from the game as quickly as possible. Not only that, but due to his champion preferences, he can also carry a match by himself without a hitch. He is currently a member of "JD Gaming," but his career began in 2017 with "Young Miracles." The player holds numerous records, the most impressive of which is the most kills in a single split. He has 35 kills in the LCL 2021 Summer, and he is the only one who currently holds that record.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • LPL Summer 2020 - 1st place (290,267$).
  • Mid-Season Cup 2020 - 1st place (240,000$).

5. Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao

“I got my team covered.”

This player has spent nearly his entire career with his current team, "RNG," and for good reason. He's an outstanding mid-laner who knows how to lead his team to victory. He enjoys ganking and roaming while also focusing on team fights during the match. He is always willing to assist his team. His playstyle revolves around this. His nickname "Xiaohu" means "Little Tiger" because he was born on January 1st of the lunar calendar, which was the "Year Of The Tiger." But before he had the nickname "Xiaohu," he had "Angel Beats," which was based on an anime called "Angel Beats!" because it was one of the few things that could make him cry.

That is a lovely story. The player has achieved numerous accomplishments and has demonstrated his ability to win multiple tournaments. Among his accomplishments were a significant number of kills in various tournaments. However, it is mostly in the LPL. Before his match against "EDward Gaming," the player had a 100% win rate with Lucian and had played 16 World Championship matches. That's insane. And, yes, he did play Lucian mid for a while because it was the meta at the time. Thank goodness Riot Games nerfed that champion and destroyed that meta.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • Mid-Seasonal Invitational 2022 - 1st place (75,000$).
  • LPL Spring 2022 - 1st place (302,087$).

4. Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther

“I am back into the game.” 

Our next player is also from Denmark, and his name is Rasmus Borregaard Winther, also known as "Caps." This player has numerous nicknames bestowed upon him by fans. Some call him "Baby Faker," while others call him "Claps" when he plays well and "Craps" when he plays poorly. The last nickname is rarely used because he almost never plays poorly. A cool fact about Caps is that he and Uzi are the only two non-Koreans to have appeared in two Worlds finals. 

A fun fact about Caps is that he has a younger brother named Ryze who is also in the professional scene but plays DotA 2. Caps enjoys playing a variety of champions, but he is best known for his Yasuo, Ryze, and Aurelion Sol. You may be wondering, "Why Aurelion?" Because of his abilities and speed, Aurelion Sol excels at roaming and ganking lanes. Caps began his career in 2015 and has since become one of the game's fan favorites. People go crazy when he walks on stage.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LEC Spring 2022 - 1st place (86,596$).
  • LEC Summer 2020 - 1st place (94,723$),

3. Heo “ShowMaker” Su

“I am gonna put on a show.”

If you think people go crazy when Caps is on stage, wait until you see what happens when ShowMaker appears. This guy has a nickname for putting on a show. He gave himself the nickname because he enjoys putting on a show for those who come to see him perform. He's a relatively new player, having joined DWG in 2017 and remaining with them to this day. He hasn't switched once, which is a good thing. The player enjoys taking risks because he knows what will rile up the fans.

Kassadin, Katarina, Syndra, and LeBlanc are the champions he employs to put on a show. All of these champions excel at killing people, perhaps even a group of them. They are effective at quickly eliminating the team. Not only that, but that is also his playing style. The player was also the 17th person to reach 1000 kills in the LCK but he was the first person in history to have that many kills in such a short period. That's why he enjoys taking risks and that’s quite a badass achievement.

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • 2021 World Championship - 2nd place (333,750$).
  • LCK Summer 2021 - 1st place (172,572$).

2. Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon

“I ain’t letting anyone surprise me with a gank.”

Next up is Jeong Ji-hoon, also known as "Chovy" to many. Chovy is currently a member of Gen.G, but that was not always the case. He began his career in 2017 with the "Gwangju" team. He was always a mid-lane player, according to what is known, and he never switched lanes. I mean, I can't blame him because the mid-lane is one of the most enjoyable positions in the game. In his professional career, Chovy has amassed an impressive list of accomplishments and victories.

But the most notable achievement was achieving a 100 KDA in the professional scene against the all-powerful T1. When his total score was added up, it came to 44/1/16, which is simply incredible. Imagine playing a tournament split and only dying once. That is truly badass stuff. He plays a variety of champions, but his Cassiopeia and Galio stand out. Chovy can easily gain a huge wave advantage thanks to those champions' wave management and knowledge. He can successfully gank lanes and roam around helping anyone and carrying the team to victory thanks to this knowledge!

Major Tournament Achievements: 

  • LCK Summer 2022 - 1st place (147,623$).
  • LCK Spring 2022 - 2nd place (81,829$).

1. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok

“I am the unkillable demon king!”

Here we have the most famous player and the face of the League of Legends professional scene, Lee Sang-hyeok, also known as Faker. This player is simply insane at the game, as evidenced by his skill. He doesn't currently have a playstyle other than to assist his jungler as much as possible. Because his motto is to assist "the jungler in winning the game." Faker also holds the record for appearing in the most World Championships music videos and promotional videos, as well as having the most champions that he can play. On the mid-lane, Faker will play any champion in the game.

He doesn't care who or what he's playing; he just needs to be in the midfield. Despite the fact that he can play a variety of champions, he is best known for his Zed, LeBlanc, Azir, and Ryze. By playing Ryze, he is a complete danger to society. Faker has the most in-depth understanding of the game and knows everything there is to know about League of Legends. And if you're wondering why Riven was so popular in the mid-lane when she was OP, it's because Faker used to spam her in that lane. That is why she became so well-known.

Major Tournament Achievements:

  • LCK Spring 2022 - 1st place (163,659$).
  • LCK Spring 2020 - 1st place (93,798$).
