How do you main anything in this game?

I understand the concept of playing one thing to get better at it. I just don't see how you can do that with League of Legends. Especially in ranked and draft mode. I'm not very outspoken but before I can even consider saying what I would want to play it and my backup role is usually called. So I've been practicing each role somewhat. I just don't see how I can main a role if it's like this. Where I'm getting this main one role is on a youtube video saying this is the best way to gain ELO.

Well, the first thing you could do is get a name like mine - predictably, I main ADC.

That said, learn to type faster, or copy/paste the message you want to send. Be fast - or pick first. If you're first pick, **** the guy who's fourth and wants to play mid lane. You go mid lane, since you want to too.

I guess it's just not my personality to do that. I could do that though, it just sucks that's how it is. I think there should be a queue system like World of Warcraft (meh) where you select what role/roles you want to play.

i really am good at 2 roles, so i go into matches and say mid, or adc
if you guys want me to do good, thats where i need to be

if they feel the need to be pricks, then they can have a sub-par jungler or top laner and run a bigger chance of losing the game
generally if you give the team a choice of 2 roles, youll get one of them

I usually do this, mine being top and mid but they seem to be the most popular roles and instantly get called. I guess I just need to be more assertive.

I enjoy supporting if my AD is competent.

it's easy... look, I'm good with 3 roles (ap mid > solo top > adc), I'm not a very experient jungler and I'm a really really bad tank and support. So when I enter the room I just quickly select a champion (not auto locking it) so people know what I want to play and then tip something like "I'm a really bad tank and support". People don't want a bad tank so they will like let you play other role.

That doesn't really work for draft pick.
