Our latest League of Legends tier list for Patch 10.7 looks at the best mid laners in the current meta.

Mid laners everywhere held their breath when they saw Akali and Corki on the list for champions to be buffed in Patch 10.7. But you can exhale now, everyone. Our League of Legends tier list for the mid lane has remained fairly stable at the top.

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top mids in the current meta. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each mid laner that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. Without further ado, our latest League of Legends tier list.

Rising Picks


Unsurprising given the buffs he received in Patch 10.7, but Corki took one of the biggest jumps in our League of Legends tier list overall. He went from firmly in the F tier to high-D tier in just one patch.

Aurelion Sol

Currently the winningest mid laner in the meta, Sol saw his win rate jump by 1.5% to now being 55.1% (he does, however, have one of the lowest pick rates in the meta). Given that Aurelion Sol one-tricks seem to be having so much success, he’s moved up in our mid lane tier list to high-C tier.


Those buffs to his ult seem to have been effective. He’s up into the mid-B tier all the way from being in the F tier in the last patch.

Dropping Picks


Underrated Picks

Our pick for the most underrated pick in Patch 10.7 for the mid lane is Malzahar. Despite the fact that he has consistently been in our mid-to-high B tier, he continues to have a pick rate of around 2% in Plat and above. With the ease of his kit, Malzahar is a great pick for new and experienced mids alike!

Overrated Picks

Even though she took a big leap forward in Patch 10.7, Irelia is our pick for overrated mid laner of the patch. Despite having a top-10 pick rate, she has only a 45% win rate in Plat+ and is the only top-10 pick rate mid laner in the C tier. Honorable mention goes to Leblanc, who is also a top-10 pick rate mid but is at least in the mid-B tier.
