Why do some AD Carries think their job is to focus the enemy AD Carry?

In my 2nd to last game ago, we had an Ashe who in every fight would go into the front and try to focus their Tristana who was in the back of their army and then would yell at us for not protecting her well enough, obviously she would be the first to die since their Jax and Ahri would just burst her super fast, so when we told her "Well don't go into the front and maybe we would be able to keep you alive" she said "I have to focus their carries or they will just kill us" So I said her job was to sit in the back and deal damage to whoever she can focus without dying preferably with a Last Whisper to get past their armor.

...then in all chat "LMAO THIS NASUS SAYS FOCUS THE TANK NOT THEIR CARRIES GG WP NOOB TEAM" and called me stupid the rest of the game for thinking that is the AD Carries job.

-_-

Luckily in my next game I had the pleasure of Supporting a pretty good Tristana player and everyone on our team was pretty friendly, but man why are there still AD Carries who think they are supposed to try and focus the enemy carries who are in the back?

It's because when the adc is in proper positioning doing dmg to the team while not dying, the rest of the team is like OMG ADC NEVER IN TEAM FIIGHTS NOOB NO DMG ATTACKING TANK.

You can't win, either way, it's always everyone elses' fault... Sarcasm btw.

In low tiers people don't realize what positioning is and you get harassed no matter what you do.

Unfortunately for you, Ashe was correct. Not about being the first one in, but about focusing carries.

The Ashe was completely right. An ass about it, but right.

AD Carries are not supposed to focus the enemy carries. It is as you said, they are to hit whoever is nearest and to put out as much DPS as possible. On a small related note, teams without at least 1 assassin, will get buttfawked in the game.

Usually it happens because dumb teammates in previous games yelled at them for focusing tank... which an ADC has to do. You can't walk through the people focusing you.

Yes our bruisers who are tanky enough to get to the carries and not die should be focusing them assuming it isn't better for them to peel in that situation, but our AD Carry who has no tanky items should be in the back shooting at anyone she can so she doesn't just die.

Now if their Tristana was right in the middle of the fight then yes Ashe should focus her, but not when Trist is in the back of their army.

Learn to read. He is just quoting what Ashe said. He didn't say that. You're so bad.

Only the bruiser/tank should be focusing the carry.
ADC should be kiting and attacking whatever's in range, while the support protects mainly the ADC, but also their team.

You shouldn't focus the ADC if it means you are going to commit suicide trying to get to it
