Is Riven Mid really Viable?
 
On this guide I read it says that Riven is better when played in the middle even if it's against current meta, it says just keep pushing the lane and roaming around, has anyone ever gone middle on her and care to give me their opinions on it, and if it's better than going top?

Yes I've played it and its incredibly fun.

I didn't click it but I assume its the goldfather guide?

You can put basically any bruiser with a gapcloser mid and they'll do well. It's just worse than putting them top because then the APs have to go top and top isn't as short and escapable from ganks as mid is.

This works really well if you have an AP that is good at top . (think rumble / kennen/ vlad)

The other team is then stuck with a squishy no escape ap top which is bad for them or a counter lane mid with riven.

Only time you don't want to throw a bruiser mid is when you are fighting a champ that can slow, ensnare, or just instantly blink away.

Irelia does fairly well against Kassadin.

Only problem with bruisers mid is it makes your team incredibly vunerable to itemization. GA is a very effective armour item, for instance.

Im only lv 29 but i main riven and only tend to play her mid because in my experience riven does extremely well against all the current "meta" midlaners in the game at the moment including gragas, ziggs, and even orianna. and because u are in the mid lane and you're riven u can roam most of the time while still keeping up in cs and also picking up kills, giving u the edge u need in order to carry your game.
