Someone yelled at me for building support aura Taric because I looked at our team, saw no tank, so I picked up soul shroud and aegis to offtank+have some nice auras. "OMG! TARIC CAN'T TANK! BUILD AP NUB"

Guess who tanked and won that game for them?

My team had Trynd, MF, TF, and Panth one time. They all locked in right away, claiming that they were a "pro 4-made." and told me to pick a tank. I typed, in all caps, "WHO NEEDS A TANK. ONLY PUSSIES NEED TANKS. REAL MEN PLAY CARRIES." I locked in smite/revive eve and said I was jungling. They told me I was going to get reported and que-dodged.

I think every game that has "tanks" has this same problem. They are basically essential but the vast majority don't want to play one.


Because your options are like what? Shen/Rammus/Singed if you want proper tank and not some "wannabe" (yet working to certain extend). Since Shen there was no tank released, and that's some while ago :>

You didn't need the tldr. If people want a tank...pick an f-ing tank. That said, I always try to pick what the team needs if there is something missing. I don't lock in until there is atleast one tank and one capable mid but I will click on someone I feel like playing at the time so I don't have to panic at the last second changing stuff if everyone else is balanced.
