basically the title. Like, obviously carries are the highest but what is really the order of who you should kill first in a team fight.

(AP/AD)Carries>Supports>Bruisers>Tanks

This is of course situational, if someone is out of place or you can't target "x" champion because they of positioning (they're too deep to get close enough without putting yourself at risk) you should focus the next highest threat.

In a teamfight, your priority target should be the AD carry. Why? Because after the first few seconds of the teamfight, when most of the other champions have used their CDs, the AD carry is going to be doing the most damage on the team. The team that protects their AD carry the best will most likely win the teamfight.

However, if the enemy team has a sustained AP caster like Karthus or Ryze, they should be focused first, because a sustained AP caster will do more damage in the mid game than an AD carry. After that, kill any burst casters (keep them CCed if possible while you kill the AD carry) and then the bruisers and finally the support.

It really depends on who you are, who the enemy are, what position they're in etc.

For example, as a tanky dps such as Shyvana, you really want to be jumping onto the enemy carries and trying to get them out of the fight early so the rest of your team can have an easier time taking care of the rest. On the other hand, if you're an AD carry, you seriously just want to hit whoever you can safetly, preferably bruisers who are trying to kill you first. AP carries attempt to dump as much damage as possible whenever it is safe then backing off, whereas tanks just attempt to disrupt the enemy team while protecting their own.

Even then some of these don't work, it's really situational.

Go for the ranged ad champions. If you dont, they'll just stay back in teamfights and get fed. After that, go for their ap carry.

It's impossible to give you a list or flow chart that will work for every team comp let alone every situation. Sure you want to kill the damage dealers if you can, but sometimes it's that pesky Jax who got fed rather than the Ezreal who only has a BF sword and zerkers 20 minutes in. Sometimes you want to poke the Kayle to force her to use her ult so you can kill someone else of higher priority. Sometimes they over extend. Sometimes...

Glass cannons are your highest priority targets when you can get to them, though as I said... :P

Easiest to hardest to kill within your acceptable range, of course. It's that simple.

Keep in mind " acceptable range " may not allow you to pick off their AD or mages. That's okay, target the CQCs.

At times it is proper to focus the tank, everything is situational in teamfights
