I spent my last game infront of my tank as a carry because he refused to lead, and when he did lead he would start a fight we follow him in then he leaves(with more then 75% health)

and how does this help the thread? It's not relevant at all. :P

here is the life of a tank:

Me "oh look, we have a 3 on 2!"

Me "hey guys, lets get annie, she just used her flash!"

Them "ok!"

Me"ok i'm going!"

Me "guys, where are you???"

ME "OMG DON'T ATTACK THE RAMMUS WTF!!!"

dies, and other teammates chase to their deaths -

Them "wtf noob you so bad why you go after full health annie when we have rammus at 50%"

tanks must : protect their teamates , initiate fights , lead the way, take as much damage as possible, mitigate as much dmg as possible, tank should try not to get kills from the carry. and other stufff

It's very relevant. There's one golden rule that a tank needs to follow.

"Be in between the carry and the enemy"

lol, ok. I thought you were just one of those people who come into to threads just to try and ruin it with something that doesn't relate to the topic to create an argument/tangent. Yes, tanks need to be between carry and other champs.

had an amumu the other day was like 8-7ISH-30

played an amumu 6-5-16 126k dmg dealth 31k tanking
time dead 198
118 minions and 21 neuts

amu tanking is a lot of fun because you mostly dont have to worry about dying, at least i dont i mostly just spam tantrum while constantly repositioning and dmg soaking before i ult or "rarely" try to fully escape instead of just running in circles to draw fire.

you also feel like you are responsible for every single kill your team has gotten <3. tanks are badasses

tanking is hard because when you do it right, you can still have a negative KDR. Then everyone *****es at you. "care!". Ya dude... I was caring while i jumped on the grenade. I'm still caring while i'm respawning and you continue to farm.

Tanking is hard because people don't know how to group up for a team fight and can't focus on carries.

Last night my team kept wanting me to initiate a 4v5 because someone was always off in the jungle farming or farming a creep wave.

Then after initiating on the other team's xin or irelia the team chased after the ap kog maw effectively giving the enemy team a large true damage nuke, then they proceeded to try focusing the shen leaving most of their sustained dps mostly unharmed

Of course it was the tanks fault though.

Kinda hard to do when your team consists of four squishy melee carries.
