Anything but the best performance won’t be enough to win this competition, but these select mid-laners will look to show why they deserve the title.

  • Yagao

Although his regular season did not go as expected, JD Gaming’s mid-lane main Yagao cleared all possible doubts with an incredible playoff performance that made him achieve the Finals MVP award.

Yagao showed his adaptability this split with amazing executed team fights on Ahri, playmaking prowess on Lissandra, or fast-paced engages on Azir, he definitely stepped up to the occasion and assisted his team to victory with 16 kills and a total of 37 assists. He is the perfect piece to JDG’s powerful top side trio of 369 and Kanavi, and will most likely be a huge threat to their opponents.

  • Faker

Faker might not play with a mechanical focus as he used to in the past, but the greatest League of Legends player of all time still brings leadership, experience, and most importantly guidance. T1’s staple player still has a huge champion pool, bringing out 15 different champions through the LCK’s regular season.

The experienced superstar achieved the most assists in the mid-lane role during this last split, usually playing playmaking champions like Galio, Lissandra, and Seraphine to help the T1 youngsters shine in the Rift. His experience and maturity will be absolutely needed in T1’s push for the next World’s title, especially after showcasing that he can still lane against the likes of Chovy.

The best mid-laner of all time will have to show all the tricks and plays mastered across the years, and hopefully bring one more title to Korea.

The veteran mid-lane main has already taken three Mid Season Invitationals in two different roles (top and mid lane) and even had an incredible 2022 Summer Split where he had an impressive 74.9 percent kill participation.
