Will this change prevent mid lane assassins from visiting other lanes?

A tweet made by a Riot Games' employee revealed the new changes for patch 10.9. Considering that most of them aren't related to the mid lane, the current meta will remain unaffected for the most part.

Riot Games' lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, has released the intended changes we will most likely see in patch 10.9. After our best picks for the top lane , we've now prepared a list of the best mid lane champions you should play.

S tier:

  • Fizz
  • Diana

Even though Fizz and Diana have been dominating the mid lane for a couple of patches now, it seems like the balance team is satisfied with their current place in the meta since no nerfs are coming their way in 10.9.

A tier:

  • Cassiopeia
  • Kassadin
  • Neeko
  • Vladimir
  • Talon
  • Zoe
  • Orianna
  • Ekko
  • LeBlanc
  • Qiyana
  • Lissandra
  • Syndra

The recent buffs to Orianna resulted in her being the strongest control mage in the game at the moment. She saw a significant increase in both play rate and win rate.

B tier:

  • Zed
  • Katarina

  • Sylas
  • Galio
  • Yasuo
  • Corki
  • Malzahar
  • Zilean
  • Annie
  • Azir
  • Ornn
  • Ahri

Zilean got moved to the B tier thanks to the fact that he currently holds the highest win rate for the mid lane with a staggering 55.41 per cent for Platinum and the ranks above.

The list is made for Diamond and the ranks below, therefore you should avoid picking anyone we haven't named here since there are champions with similar kits and playstyles, but with a greater impact overall.
