Yesterday Grackis (who got to 1900 through luck) was having a hard time as Fiddle against a team of 1200 elo.


Basically they make those threads so people won't go on about how MM is all about luck.

There are great players in high-elo, but not all of them are better than the average.


i watched stream, he trolls ,and he has no runes.

he did not buy a single ward

4 carries + u tank vs opponent 5 carries.

your team wins.

o wait.. you always have bad luck that goes against statistics.

You luck is the same as surveying 1000 random people and finding out 900 of them are blind.

poor you, i cant imagine out of how many gazillion can one's luck be bad as yours

Ignoring the fact that he is Grakis...

Clearly good players can carry every game and not just have a strong positive relationship over the course of many games. /sarcasm

put an average player in high elo and he will get dominated completely in lane.

This. A tank can singlehandedly win a game. A carry can't.

The key seems to be playing champs that aren't tanks or carries, but rather both. I have the most success with champs like Nasus and Udyr. Both have great survivability and awesome damage output, so if your team isn't supporting you, then you can still rape. Playing a carry requires your team to cc/initiate properly and playing a tank requires your carry to dps and position properly.

EDIT: If your team is really as bad as you think they are, you aren't carrying as Ashe/Yi/MF/whatever carry you're playing. A team of 5 scrubs will still focus the carry if your 4 scrubs aren't at least SOMEWHAT protecting you, even if doing so passively.
