Our tier list reveals who the community feels are the best mid laners in League of Legends in Patch 9.22.

Welcome back to the League of Legends tier list aggregations, where we attempt to give a picture of how various tier lists and ranking sites around the internet perceive the current meta. These rankings are determined by collecting data from the tier lists and rankings of ten different sites to give you the average strength of each champion in the five roles of League of Legends. We’ll start off by looking at the best mid laners in Patch 9.22.

If you’re interested, you can also find all of the underlying data for this and all the past patches here. We also provide some guidance for how to use these tier lists (i.e. what do we mean when we say a champion is S tier vs. A tier) here. When evaluating the sites and tier lists, we used data for Platinum plus players worldwide. The individual sites we audited are also listed below (note the rankings are as of 12 PM EST on November 8).

The tier list for mids in Patch 9.22 was determined by the average ranking among the following sites, excluding the highest and lowest scores:
