I get this feeling you play tanky characters.
Yeah, because both Janna and Soraka weren't effective counters to the AoE strat, let alone directly under a tower.

Yeah, because jumping into Heimer's turret nest was ever a good idea.

Yeah, because Ezreal and Shaco weren't totally able to circumvent most AoE team fights.

The poke meta game emerged for a reason.

This Meta involves 1 carry, 1 support, 2 tough DPS and a tank. It is the most "balanced" Meta thus far, with a good mix of class types.

Sorry its no longer 4 AE classes and a tank or 2 long range DPS and 3 support classes. That was the big problem with the old meta, they didn't really allow for a wide range of "class types". This one does.

I know, its sad that only one player on a team should be playing a carry but that really is all you need in a "balanced" game.

Well if the meta sucks, crack it rather than wait for riot to fix it for you. I know its not a perfect analogy, but for any Magic: The Gathering players out there, you must remember the Jund menace. It was 40% of the competitive field, and racked in over a thousand Top 8s. Rather than join it, LSV designed a deck built specifically to destroy jund based on its weak points with UWR Control. It didn't last too long, but it proved that the dominant force in the meta could be broken and lead to a plethora of decks, turning a stagnant meta into a healthy one.

I guess what i'm trying to say with this is figure out a team that just hard counters what you have trouble with. For example if theres a lot of armor and tons of hp tanks pick up Kogmaw with Madreds. Maybe some characters that help you outmaneuver the tanks to get at their squishies first. Rather than burst go for powerful sustainable damage that can take out tanks.

But take this with a grain of salt from a 1300 ranked player (though on the up and up, hope to be in 1500s by the end of the week)

Learn to play different characters. Can't expect to win consistently without at least trying to counter the meta. It's not that hard. :P

I love how everybody starts complaining that Sunfires are OP just because Garens started stacking them.
If Garen bothers you that much, then change Garen, not an item that many tanks rely on to be effective. Also, if somebody stacks only Sunfires, then just buy Madred's, it works wonders. If you complain that they have too many magic resist items, then they aren't really stacking Sunfires, are they?

this metagame is a hell of a lot better than healspam teams where you had almost 0 chance of winning against unless you had the same team
