Has ranged harass. What's the problem.

Really, downvotes?

Follow meta or your team will feed and afk.

Because then your team's mage is gonna be far from blue.

It's not that he can't go mid. He certainly can and win the lane.

You need 2 things (ok, really 3)

1) Either be purple (blue buff near bot lane) or pick a mage that doesn't need mana to go bot lane. And preferably a mage that can set up kills with a support and who scales very well off of items.

2) You need to have a good matchup in mid. That AD Ezreal is cool and all, but if you try that against Annie or Malz or Brand or Ryze or worst of all Cassiopeia, you're going to get your face melted or zoned. Badly. Get a more passive mid like Morgana and it can work.

3) You need to have a team willing to work with you on this one.

Also, just be aware that you're putting your AP at a disadvantage by taking away their solo lane EXP, so AD Ez really needs to win that mid lane hard to make it worth it. Now, who all does AD Ez dominate mid against? Not just win, but DOMINATE? It's not that long of a list.

Unless my mage is a mage that doesn't use mana.

Say vlad.

And say our team's mage is vlad and is top.

Then what is the problem?

Maybe because they played vs ez before.

I don't see why your mage NEEDS blue buff. Saving mana and playing defensively is just as effective as spamming spells whenever your cooldowns pop. Ezreal mid can stomp very hard, but it's really just too different from what most people are expecting. It shouldn't matter too much, but if you want your team to not afk / feed, I'd suggest just tossing him bottom lane.

Because playing carries anywhere but bot lane with a support is taboo.

How dare you suggest that Ezreal is a viable mid!

Sarcasm aside, he's actually very powerful in mid if you play him aggressively, but your team is almost garunteed to troll you if you try to do it.

casters scale better with levels and ranged ads scale better with items, you dont need that extra experience, but your mage needs, you just need free farm at bottom lane
