League of Legends Tier List: The Best Mid Laners on Patch 11.4

The big changes to the mid lane meta largely came through the big changes to the jungle. There weren’t many big changes to mid laners in Patch 11.4 through changes (though the Everfrost item changes were significant). But that doesn’t mean our League of Legends tier list hasn’t changed much!

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in Patch 11.4. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each champion that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. As always, you can find the link to all the underlying data here.

Let’s dive into all the changes in our League of Legends tier list for Patch 11.4!

Rising Picks

Corki and Talon both shot up the tier list this patch, rising up at least one full tier. A few other champions rose up significantly, meaning they went up by half a tier or more: Renekton, Veigar, Garen, Nocturne, and Viego.

Falling Picks

Only two champions fell significantly in Patch 11.4: Brand and Viktor.

Underrated Picks

Incredibly, it’s Seraphine who is the least-picked mid laner who is in the A tier.

Overrated Picks

The third-straight patch that Twisted Fate is the most-picked mid laner (10.57%) despite not making the A tier.

Buffed Champions

Katarina (S ⇒ A+ tier)
Talon (B ⇒ A+ tier)
Veigar (D ⇒ C tier)

Nerfed Champions

Renekton (C ⇒ B tier)
