Mid: What is mid role in MOBA games like LoL and Dota 2?

If you’ve played any MOBA, or multiplayer online battle arena, then you’re most likely aware of the different roles players are given. While LoL and Dota are two very different games with very different maps and roles, the one role they have in common is that of the mid, or middle laner.

The middle lane is considered to be the most important one when it comes to both games because the player, unlike other lanes, is always alone. Because of this, all the experience goes to only the middle laners, allowing them to level up and unlock abilities faster than other position players.

Additionally, because they’re located in the absolute middle of the map, they have the potential to go to either the top or bottom lane for a surprise attack or gank. However, unlike a jungler or roamer’s gank, mid laners have to be cautious as leaving their own lane unprotected for too long might spell disaster for the entire team.

However, their location could also be considered a curse, as it makes them a prime target for ganks from all sides. Because of this, mid laners have to first ensure they’re in the clear before making any risky moves.

Picking one role out of the many offered can be overwhelming at times. Because of this, we’ve written a guide on all the roles in League of Legends which will hopefully help you decide the best one for you.
