While a vast majority of players don't appreciate a good tank, there are plenty of us that do. I do wish the % of players that don't get it was smaller though.

i got yelled at as karma for actually winning my lane and beating the enemy by an udyr who kepted sucide diving literally into a 1 vs 5 where 2 nearby allies into their turret and screaming at me for not shielding him and saying supports are useless even though he was jungling he didn't even gank until the 20min mark and by then the turrets were gone.

Oh cool, a vast group of people who actually understand how support and tank champions are supposed to score.

The roles are sefl-explanatory.

Tank - You're a ****ing tank, your job is to provide heavy artillery/cover fire, and force back the troops so your infantry can move in and provide damage to the enemy team. If they attack you, it becomes an onslaught, hide behind your metal wall.

Support - You're like a ****ing medic, nobody expects you to go around blowing peoples' heads off with a combat rifle, they expect your support.

Anyone who detests those facts shouldn't be playing the game.

No you're not... you're feeding with suicidal kills.

Sadly, that is the case the majority of the time.

Just how the game is set up you will never know how many times you saved some one if there no kill if there is a kill it will not tell you how much you assisted in keeping your team/carrys alive.

A tank is a war vehicle deployed in both an anti vehicle and anti infantry role. It has a main turret and smaller support weapons but is often weak to air attacks

i know what you mean. When i started playing LoL i thought tanks were the really strong guys/girls that deal a poop load of dmg and can take dmg as well. I learned fast. I guess i played too much Left 4 Dead

You cannot tank for morons who blow their load on the first person out of the bushes ( who is their tank PS). This frustrates me to NO end. Count to three, and destroy their Corki who is raping our team.

I agree, I've even been told by people that a good tank should be able to have a positive K/D ratio no matter what, irregardless of their assists nor who they saved/stopped from escaping.
