If you don't think Im right, that's fine of you, but I made it to plat 1 Playing literally only mid, and not knowing how to play any other champ than what I play mid.

So next time you rage or get mad at some one who only plays one role well, maybe think twice. I only played mid champs, and Mid lane(I'd basically go kennan for adc, support, and Top lane, and lee sin jungle and top lane), and I'd always favor towards duo mid than playing another role, and I made plat 1.

tl;dr
You only need to play 1 role and you can make it to diamond.
That's a ****ty attitude, because whether you like it or not, there are going to be hundreds of games where you and 1-2 other guys specialize in the same role, meaning someone is going to be ass-out. Pick order determines winner, so there will be quite a few auto-losses using your advice (which is counter-intuitive to the whole win ratio paradigm). The lower ELO you go, the more likely you're going to run into that problem, and the higher you go, the less likely it will be. Wild Turtle can legit play every role in the game at Challenger level, that's why he's the best solo queue NA by a good 3-fold margin.

Pick order also determines what the meta is. I let them know kindly that they may have the choice to pick mid first, but I have the choice to pick the meta.

And as far as I know riot doesn't enforce meta, and from an objective standpoint, duo mid can in fact work.

Considering anyone under plat will only get their preferred role every like 3-4 queues, (considering it will almost always be top or mid) then your going down far faster then your going up even if you win every match that you actually play.

So ima call bs on this thread.
You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Dodging does not lower your MMR you ******.

Its not about getting high elo, it's about understanding the game. If you can only play 1 role you are a weaker player in general.

That's not entirely true. What I've found is if you're very comfortable with your situation, you tend to analyze things better, and see the bigger picture.

It's most noticeable when You're learning a champ. You Fail to see certain things and pull of what you're trying to do, whereas if you're very comfortable in what you're playing, you're more aware of whats going on.
This has a much bigger effect than what you tend to notice.
Being accustomed to a champ is a massive part of playing well.

Inb4 'you're plat you must suck too'.
I was just watching xPekes stream and his first pick picked Morgana and he said "Is this guy Mid? God damn it I don't know what to pick now"

So you are a trash player (because believe me, plat 4 is trash), and you are glad that someone else carried you to diamond in ranked 3s? Damn, I would be ashamed if I were you.

I played only Chogath from gold to diamond this season... any other champion I tried when I was bored with Cho I lost more than I won. I played him top, mid, jungle or support though. Mainly Top.

That's another big issue. I for one am on a team(It's not pro or anythign) and Im the mid player. Practicing another lane doesn't help my team.
Same thing for Pros, practicing another lane doesn't really help their team. You may know how to play against champ X when your in Role Y, but given Role Z you'd have no clue what to do.

First off, just have to say, First red post I've ever gotten. Ty good sir, I appreciate it.

Second; I completely am on the same page. Terrible with anyone I don't play, amazing with people I do.
