Im tired of being forced to play a tank every game simply because everyone else chooses super squishies and lock in automatically. Do I enjoy being a tank? No. Do I do it? Yes. Why? Because I dont want to qeue dodge every single freaking game I play. I played about 6 games today and was forced to tank every single time.

Just play whatever you want and stop caring about the team comp.


Game is more fun that way.

This happens to me constantly. And yet my friend constantly complains that there are too many people who play heavy melees in the meta-game. Worst part about tanking in pick up games where nobody works together is that if you die in teamfights OR the team doesn't do well you get blamed for being useless.

I agree, I have to play Amumu or another tank 7/10 times because people just choose random people that die easy. Then when the entire enemy team is stunned in a team fight they run away because..........
