Locking in and demanding someone take a tank

Can we make this bannable or something? Seriously, it's beginning to piss me off. Some **** in my last game locked in as Ryze then demanded someone else take a tank. I went to pick Rammus, but someone else took Cho'Gath, at which point, Ryze started shouting that Ram is ****e and we only needed Cho, despite the fact that Cho stated that he didn't have much experience as a tank.

Long story short, Cho was as bad as he said he was and Ryze kept shouting at him all the way through the match.

This Ryze really got under my skin. Players like that leave a bad taste in my mouth in games like this. >.< I hate it when someone locks in as a squishy then just expects another team mate to take a tank. I've got no problem being the tank, as I love Rammus and Singed, but frankly, I think that if you want a tank on the team you should be prepared to take it yourself.

tl;dr - Guy was acting like **** and it annoyed me.

I already locked in as a carry so clearly I can't be the one who tanks.

Well you can report him, but he is just not much of a team player, and I don't think that's banable. Just try to stay away from him as this is a sign of being a bad player in general, aka try not to lane with him don't count on him to help you out, just ignore him and play/coordinate with your other 3 teammates to pull off a victory.

I'll usually lock in as a jungler and then I don't care what people pick. It's normal mode, normal mode is fun mode. If we get a good team makeup, great if not, oh well. I'll have fun in the jungle where the grass is green and the wraiths are pretty.

I dislike it when people lock in without anyone else selecting in general. People often take really situational champs (or champs highly reliant on tanks) then expect people other than themselves to be the punching bags while they be *Super Pro K/D*.

I don't understand that either. If a tank is what the person wants then play a tank. What really makes it worse is when they tell you what tank to play whether you own it or even know how to play it.
