I knew my time as mid Trist was coming to an end when I started getting obliterated on a matchly (?) basis by super burst APs (LeBlanc...).

Still, I'll go mid in a premade if the oppo team has a Veigar or Morgana.

AD mid is still good. My premade sometimes runs, AD mid. Then give our AP blue and make them 2v1. Then we get a roaming support and jungle. Push towers fast, constantly counter jungle.

Digi did this strat to CLG.EU but didn't execute it perfectly. It's very strong.

The problem now is that most AP nukes can destroy ADCs mid. Brand in particular can do damage from a distance, Annie, LeBlanc is insane. Cass...

I guess running flat MR yellow and blue could help mitigate that somewhat.

Wasn't any better then how things currently are. Plus ad's can still mid, it just requires a different comp then normal.

Caitlyn, Sivir, Tristana and Ezreal can all four easily survive most Mids if you play smart.

Cleans and Flash/Ghost keep most from Locking you down and out of your DPS.

Maw of Mort/Blood Thirster mitigate damage, keep you in lane and give you decent damage.

Many people just forgot how to lane against someone who can Slap them in the ass, but few things have really changed since those days, the majority of the mechanisms are still there in Item Choice and Champion Skill Sets. The only thing that really changed was the player Mentality.

I still sivir mid sometimes against those burst mages. From memory have so far won pretty easily against kass, leblanc and veig, you just may need to put more points into spell shield earlier. I'm pretty sure if you have better reflexes/ping than me you can find more matchups :P. It is very fun though to walk into veig's dark matter for free mana though.

Nope. Cause it was generally then AP top. And that meant to really squishy lanes for easy ganks/kills. There's a reason it died off. The only reason to send AD mid is to counter Kass or Morgana or so.
