which is the hardest (that requires more skill and the one that the better player has to fill) and the easiest (opposite, the one that the worst player should fill) role in this game?

Every role takes skill to master completely, but to be able to do to a good degree, I would say:

Hardest - AD Carry/Jungler
Easiest - Support

AD Carries needs to be good at last hitting and constantly be aware of their positioning to do "decent" in a game. Junglers have to support every lane while controlling neutral creeps.

A good support can definitely change the game for the team, but in general, babysitting and warding isn't exactly the hardest things to do.

Really? I'm actually of the opposite opinion, calling AD carry close to being the easiest, and jungling as one of the hardest.

I actually think that the answer to both is the same....Support. On the easy side of it if you feed you are going to have the least detrimental effect on your team and you do not need to worry about farming. The reason it is one of the hardest is due to how clutch you need to be sometimes, you have to have a strong knowledge of positioning as well a firm grasp on when to use an ability and on who.

tanking is easiest, support or assassin is hardest.

Yi gets roflstomped in Ranked. A good one can carry his team.

Playing a passable support is easy. Playing a good support is game-changing. The difficulty difference between the two is staggering.

If your team has a solo top Singed, he's probably got it easiest. Don't die, farm, and press E when the jungler comes around.
