Jensen Ominously Predicts League’s Mid Lane Meta for 2023
The Dane discussed the changes made before of the new season, asserting that the mid lane was little affected by them and that the meta would be comparable to last year. In an interview with Travis Gafford on January 16, Jensen predicted that it would be “boring” and nearly comparable to the Worlds 2022 meta.
“For me at least as a mid laner there wasn’t really too many changes… I think the meta is going to be very, very similar to how it was at Worlds with a few tweaks,” Jensen said, pointing out champions like Syndra could be returning to position on a more regular basis.
“From mid lane perspective, very boring. Not much has changed, game is practically the same, with some new items,” he added.
On top of that, Jensen mentioned he would like to see some more updates to the mid lane role in particular. At the same time, he praised a few other tweaks made to the game, like the map update with adjusted blast cones.
During Worlds 2022, to which Jensen compared the mid lane meta, the role was dominated by mages and assassins. In the main event of the tournament, Azir, Sylas, Akali, Viktor, and LeBlanc were the top five most picked and banned champions, according to a League’s stat site Oracle’s Elixir.
Jensen debuts with Dignitas in the 2023 LCS Spring Split on Friday, Jan. 26 against CLG.
