The League of Legends’ offseason is coming to an end, and we are inching closer to the spring split of LCS 2022. The new split will feature ten teams, out of which six will qualify for the playoffs. We’ve already ranked the best junglers and AD Carriers, so now it’s time to rank the top 5 mid laners for the LCS 2022 spring split.
Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage
It’s safe to say PowerOfEvil’s stint at TSM was underwhelming. Although the team showed positive signs throughout last season, they did not win any trophy and failed to qualify for Worlds. It was evident that PowerOfEvil’s playstyle did not work well with TSM, and as a result, he was released at the end of the season. That said, PowerOfEvil is still a solid player that can hold its own against most. He is good in the laning phase and excels at mages. Now with Immortals, he will look to re-establish himself as one of the premier mid laners in North America.
Zhu “Keaiduo” Xiong
TSM’s new midlaner, Keaiduo, is relatively unknown and new to the professional League scene. Hailing from China, Kedaidou previously played for TT Young, a mid-tier LDL team. Not much is known about his playstyle and champ pool, but according to reports, he dominated the TSM Bootcamp in South Korea, which ultimately resulted in his selection. Keaidou is an aggressive player with excellent mechanical skills. He has the potential to be a top mid laner, and with TSM backing him up, we can anticipate big things from him.
Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami
Although many fans and analysts were sceptical of Fudge’s potential at the start of the last season, he went on to become arguably the second-best top laner in the league. The 19-year-old has now changed his role and will be the starting mid laner for Cloud9 moving forward. It’s hard to assess how impactful he will be in the mid lane; however, it’s evident that Fudge is a quick learner and will likely thrive in the mid lane as well.
Felix “Abbedagge” Braun
Abbedagge has been sensational since his LCS debut last year. The German mid laner guided 100 Thieves to their first-ever LCS trophy and was decent at the international stage as well. Abbedagge is a versatile player that boasts a large champion pool. He is capable of playing carry champs but can also take a backseat when needed.
Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg
Bjergsen caught everyone off guard when he left TSM to join Team Liquid. Last year, the veteran superstar retired from the professional scene to join the TSM coaching staff; however, he has come back to compete after just two splits. He is the most successful mid laner in North America, with six domestic titles. He might not have competed in more than a year, but Bjergsen is still a force to reckon.
