If you think you're clearly better than your ELO and that you will totally dominate every game until you reach the ELO you think you belong in, don't pick a tank and pick a bruiser or carry.

This is, although, a really bad piece of advice as people tend to overestimate their skills and think they don't belong in "zomfg ELO hell". Everyone will have an ELO where they will be facing opponents on your skill level, when this happens all you can do is just depend on better composition and picks than the enemy team to push you over the edge. Lower ELOs, this type of strategic play is a bit discouraged because of the skill discrepancies, but in high ELO picks and bans are essentially what's going to decide most of the game- it is really rare to see ineffective picks up here win against superior picks/composition.

I advise picking whatever your team needs, but if you are consistently carrying and doing extremely well in your lane without any help from your teammates you may want to consider just doing the "screw-my-teammates-they-are-live-bait" and pick a carry.

Pick a high CC character. That's all that matters anyway. Morgana, udyr, taric would all work.

meh, tanks are ok pretty fun to play around with.

just imo
but if ur the carry type of guy...........


Well, if you're the carry kind of guy...learn to branch out and how to play different kinds of champions effectively, and be willing to do so from time to time. Otherwise, you are your parents' failure, and no one will love you. Ever.

I usually pick a tanky or CC champion If I don't want to tank so that at least we have some utility. However my Main is Cho so I would pick him most of the time.

It's their fault for not discussing a nice team. Play what you want.

First off I main tanks so its not a big deal for me second I can play any Role in this game if ur stuck with picking the tank just do it unless u want to lose. u should have at least 1 champion that u can play for each role assassin, tank, AD carry, AP carry, support, etc. at least one of each so u can easily even out ur teams composition and have a higher chance of winning that solo que. Otherwise find friends to play with so u dont have to tank if u dont like it

They locked before seeing the rest of the team comp. It's their problem.
