That's far too modest an estimate.

Squishies should win against tanks any day, but it does require a little bit of coordination and kiting. You can't expect that from players at a low level, which is the majority of the player base.

Even if you play well and kite around, the rest of your team will herpderp into tanks and get killed.

The other half is last hitting, map awareness, and ganks.

Positioning does not mean 'run around real fast'

While I believe ranged carries are viable in the current meta, I disagree that ranged carries can merely kite all tanky DPS. Most of the tanky DPS have gap closers and CC. How does a ranged DPS kite a Xin Zhao, Olaf, Jarvan IV, etc...?

IMO, Ranged DPS need babysitting to be effective.

Didn't say that. Said OP had no clue what the term meant.

Kiting is literally the counter to tanky dps, if you see Jarvan/Renek/Xin/Irelia etc counterpick Ashe or Nidalee tia

And the other half is killing Teemo!

EDIT: Actually, killing that little rat is more like 3/4 of the game.
