See, that pisses me off. I've roller balled into teams of the enemy to save two low health teammates who were being chased, so that I could die to save them, and have been called a "noob" before by other people for being "dumb enough to roll into the entire enemy team".



Tanks die so that others may live. If you have a high K/D ratio it means you'll give more money per death, and with as often as you are putting your neck out there doing stuff that no one else on your team could pull off, it's not a good idea really to be worth a lot. So, a bad K/D ratio isn't a horrible idea, as long as you have a lot of assists.

I had to do a case on Tribunal 2 months back a Rammus was reported for feeding. I KIDD YOU NOT when I say his score was 6 / 46 / 70.... and his team.... the team that reported him..... won in the end.... now apparently in the case he fed in the beginning so he would become worthless as a kill so that does desrve the report..... but mid game he would set up ganks where he would die but his CC and initiation basically set up his team mates to ACE

RIOT ended up banning this guy for exploiting the gold worth system.... but he was considered by RIOT to have done his job as a tank Mid to Late game.... (the reason I know this is because it was discussed on the tribunal forums with RIOT staff).... but not early game

I agree with everyone here and I main as a tank and feel under appreciated.... the case above was an example of how tanks do their jobs if they have more deaths than kills.... (however he did purposly feed in the beinning in order to make him give less gold later) which added to the chaos and insanity

MobaFire tends to agree with you Fistful of Foce but they also disagree with you to a slight degree and I listen to them a bit more.

I have chased enemies around as Singed, Malphite, Amumu or Alistar and it took me a while to kill them.... but the reason I was chasing them is because my defenses were so **** high that my BASE damage was out pacing their offensively built damage only because my defenses turned their casts / attacks into mosquito bites..... and MY HEALTH REGEN was keeping me alive

You have no idea how man times an Olaf through he could take my Malphite down.... only to find out that aint happening bro

I remember when I chased around a tanky built Lee Sin as Singed for no joke over 2 minutes..... this was endgame and we had the win in the bag..... he died after so many failed jukes

According to MobaFire building defensive items that ALSO give you Magic Pen or Armor Pen (based on what your damage output is) can and will increase your effective base damage

So an Abyssal Scepter on Amumu can really devestate the enemy... Rylai's Crystal Scepter on Singed is just not even fair for them

So I do agree with you fully.... its just that if I see a pure offense item on a tank like I.E. im just gonna laugh at them

BuFF HeR AP RatIOS 4 GRT JustICE!!!

Too bad people don't realize Leo is the paragon of what a Tank should be in this game. I wish all the other Tanks had the same Damage vs. Survivability/CC ratio as her.

Leona is a good tank and people will always complain/troll if someone goes negative regardless of their job

Not a lot of people appreciate tanks.. I play rammus and I can't count the times when I taunt the overextending opposing carry into our team and demolish him/her and as a result win a team fight. Never do I get a thanks..
