Why is mid lane so POPULAR?

Seriously, can someone answer this? I'm truly baffled as to why in literally EVERY. SINGLE. GAME, the chat's not a chat, it's a race to see who can Ctrl+V mid first.

I'd love to hear your life story and all, but I'm kind of busy eating this nice plate of "I don't give a damn".

because in solo queue everyone actually wants to feed.

For optimal feeding experience one must be mid or top. As that way you can blame the jungler for your sick, sick fetishes.

Well in my experience, of the last 15 games I've had mid, I've won 14 of them while carrying with about 10 average kills and 2 average deaths. When I have top I only win about 70% of the time, and when I play anything else top and mid feed and it doesn't matter how I do since neither of the bot lane roles can build tanky and push alone, and the jungle naturally falls behind if his lanes do since the team loses map control.

It's natural to want the role where you can actually just force a win by forcing your opponent out of lane and ganking bot over and over. Plus none of the random mids I get ever seem to buy wards, and having wards mid gives a ton of map control early since the jungler will cross those wards even when he's not actually ganking.

I personally like mid because of the champ select. Champs like viktor, orianna, and eve don't do well in other lanes based on typical matchups (league of bruisers makes these 3 cry in a lot of cases) so I like to play mid. Ap champs are the most fun in my opinion
