i have a 2:1 win ratio in ranked. _(or did have before friday, I'm too scared to check now.)_
83% win rate on Taliyah
73% on Aurelion Sol
67% on Azir
for the majority of the season I've been in silver with gold mmr.
and nothing I do makes a difference!
The last 5 games in a row, we have lost _purely_ because no one in the team picks tanks, and it's not that they don't pick tanks, it's that they flat out refuse to! _(no joke)_.
Ive had last-pick supports tell me that they don't play tank supports.
Ive had jungle's go Shaco or Yi becasue 'They carry, tanks don't'.
I stress the importance of tanks in the pre-game screen, and beg BEG them to pick tanks.
Ive even started just going other positions like support and Jungle just so we can have at least 1 tank, or even going champs like Galio in mid.
But then of course I can't have the roam impact I have as Taliyah/Sol.
I get these absolute cabbages, for example, in champ select we have 0 tanks _(as per usual)_, I abandon mid to go top as Shen _(so we can have at least 1 champ above 2000 HP)_ but our ADC asks me to trade roles because they cant ADC _(which brings up the question of why they are in mid sliver games? or even playing ranked in the first place)_. I didn't want our main damage champion to be unconfident, and my skill level in top and ADC is roughly the same, So I tell him:
_"Ok ill trade with you, but you have to promise to pick a tank top."_
He picks first:
Tells us that he is a Teemo main and tells us we don't need tanks because he's guaranteed to carry.
We get into game, he doesn't even have lvl 7 Teemo.
10 minutes in, Teemo has half of Yorick's farm and Yorick is 4/0.
Needless to say, we lose because no one is tanky enough to survive the fights.
I look at Teemo's profile to understand why he would be matched with me.
He's **Gold 5**....
**Gold 5 is all I ever dream of in this game. **
And there are so many of these people in my games who are Gold.
Why do people like that have Gold, and yet with all my knowledge and experience I can't do anything to rise?
Im far from being a great player, and I'm not a boastful person, but I'm hell of a lot better than them!
Now I'm on a 5 game loosing streak, so not only do I have 90+ LP to catch back up on, but now also get less LP for wins, more for losses, and get matched with lower skilled people... Its a self destructive cycle D:
Im not blaming my team, I don't care how bad/well they play.
I just want them to be smart in champ select.
It's not much to ask...
All I want is Gold 5. and even then I only want it just incase Taliyah gets the Victorious skin...
I cant duo either, because it screws up the LP gain.
Any shred of confidence I had in my ability to win is lost.
It's just so depressing....
