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

attack the most vulnerable target without putting yourself out of position

most of the times that is a tank

but occasionally you catch their carry and you win

Because this game doesn't have a tutorial, and when you're a newb you get stuck with newbs and ragers who know nothing about the game. So you spend 30 levels swirling around in a dirty puddle of misinformation.

ADC should be focusing ADC if in range.
Either bad positioning, or poor initiator.
You should never focus the tank nevertheless.

There are AD bruisers, AP, and other roles on the team that would be within range.
If you are only within range of the tank in a team fight. Then please play another role.

He gave one side of the story, and left the rest to interpretation. Where was the Tristana? Who was babysitting her? Who was supporting the Ashe? Was she severely underleveled? Was she very overleveled? Was the Trist on a streak?

ADC HAS to attack the tanks in most fights (and really they are the only ones who can reliably kill them with their sustained damage. Mages cant do so.) Its generally the burst mages or ad assassins whos job it is to ACTUALLY kill the ADC on the enemy team but often times a top lane bruiser handles diving the enemy carry because they can actually potentially live while they do so.

The ADC cannot kill the enemy carry without dieing unless the enemy carry is WAY out of position.

Bruisers are supposed to focus AD carries . Ad carries are supposed to focus anything that's close to them .
