I'd argue that melee carries are the 'hardest' carries. Of course Tryn is number 1, but Yi, Olaf, Jax, and AD Sion really fit the profile of **** early game, godly late game once they get their items.

Olaf is the closest one of those to a hard carry but they don't aren't item/level reliant enough.

Tristana is definitely close. She only gets stronger as as the game progresses and scales well with items. I've seen Tristanas go from 0/5 scores to carrying the team, just like Trynds. She might not be quite as powerful late game as Trynd but she has more versatility in both skills and item builds.

I have gone 10-0-10 with trist before with 5 tower kills and still managed to lose.

Have a read of this, itll pretty much detail it for you.
That thread description if horrid no offense. Soft carries to hard carries dont exist in this game. riot even admits anti- carrying is the strongest force in this game.
WHat i mean by this is profile me and look at galio. Even though i have over 260 creeps per game in 3 games its impossible to carry lol.

To op the best way to win games is pretty much play consistent. Ward consistently and lane consistently.

Tristana isn't a hard carry. Hard carries are people that can pretty much 1v5 and win like Tryndamere or old Twitch since Twitch could kill them before anyone got in range to kill him and I haven't seen the new to say if he can.

Carries in LoL are very weak compared to DotA/HoN carries. It seems like every physical dps champion is called a carry.

Shaco, Mundo, Nasus, Trundle, Urgot, and Morde are the best carries ever.
