Why we don't see much tanks in ranked

TL;DR in bold

Well, I got the answer, first of all, I hate people who lock in stupid champs or champs the don't play with a lot, so they suck in game, that's not so ok but most people buy runes for their mains, which are mostly carries, do you know why people perfer carries? because most good carries are 6300 IP, like MF and Twitch, but their runes are cheap, let's say the ArPen Quints are 1025 IP, while the 32 HP Quints are 2050, double the price. Mostly all tank runes are double the price, but the champions are cheap themselves, Galio is an exception, but he's banned in pretty much every game. And a lot of people just buy champions and leave runes for later, they want to see the potentials of each champion without waiting a million weeks for the exact champion they want to try out.Really, Riot, tanks are the heart of the whole game in my opinion, we need them in every game, but people can't afford them. And the more types of tanks you play, the more runes (example Galio and Rammus). All runes should be at the price of carry champion runes..Thanks for reading.

Ranked is the new normal for people. Ranked isn't competitive in Elo Hell. Its Hell.

No reason to tank if everyone is a ******.

Might as well go rally+revive Urgot.

What? I see more tanks in ranked. It's very common for two people on my team to pick tanks or at least 1 tank and a couple tanky heroes.

Um, runes are hardly a concern. Health quints are pretty good for carries anyway, and tanks aren't particularly item/rune dependent (not as much as carries), so whatever else you got set up for them works. Arpen marks are great for jungling (which many tanks do), armor/dodge/hp/mp5 seals all work well, and cdr/mr glyphs work nicely too.

I always laugh when someone uses the "I don't have tank runes" excuse for not picking a tank.
