Mid lane tips?

#1gfshynoblPosted 11/23/2012 4:15:11 AM
Alright so i've come to a conclusion and to win low elo, (1100) is to dominate mid.
sadly its pretty much my worst role, besides top.

atm i've been playing ryze, since hes kinda easy mode,
but i wanna progress to other ap mids,
wanna really learn this role,

atm i only thing i've gotten done, is last hitting (well trying on a 300 ping connection)
and push my wave to their tower, and go gank a lane.

and what other ap mids would suggest to learn/main
anything would be helpful ^.^

(Disclaimer: I'm not nearly as good as my theoretical knowledge)

You defintely want to kill (solo or gank) or make your opponent B around the time you hit level 5.
That way, when they get back, you'll be 6, have your ult, and snowball from there on.

Mid is the most skill-based lane imo.

Your enemy can get fed and still die to you if you play it right, since you're never forced to trade. If you can dodge their skillshots and land yours, you can still win

the 3 most viable mids in my opinion are anivia, orianna, and twisted fate

all of these are also very snowballey (e.g., a fed TF is a goddamn monster)

Ryze is a viable champion but I wouldn't say he's the best in solo queue because of how much time it takes for him to scale up to actually deal damage

the key to winning mid is knowing how to land and avoid skillshots tbh

When the enemy has a shaco then stay at the back until he pops out of the map if your champion have no escapes because most of the time, middle lane will be the first target and you're pretty much dead.

Last time I did mid I did AP Yi and dominated lmao. his Q is just insanely pokey and then his W heals for MASSIVE amounts as an AP. It heals like 300/sec and gives an extra 200? armor/magic resist.

But no the Middle does not have to do good for low elo to win, the mid just can't FEED.

Wards.

Get Double Dorans(Most of the Time)

Gank Top or Bottom, whichever is feeding

B only when critically low or you've killed your lane opponent

Get Blue from your jungler

Out CS your Lane opponent

Taunt a lot.

Get Dragons whenever possible after killing enemy mid

Ryze is the king of the 1100s, so I'd just stick to him.
