Have to admit though... the Tank dillema has existed since... well a very long time.

I guess at some point, I take the perspective that "The tank's job is to deal with aggro.... of all sorts... including teammate aggro..."

Pick Eve and make THEM queue-dodge! Counter-picking vs your own team FTW.

Sad, but such is life

In all seriousness though, try to find a friend who also plays tanks well, and duo queue/alternate playing the tank?

Its because most people think they are playing a deathmatch, they want kills cos the big numbers at the end of the game makes them feel special. They are the first to complain though when their team isn't doing good, because everybody looks bad when your team isn't making it happen. Too many players are happier with a lost game where they had 25+ kills than a win with 5-10 kills, its a very egocentric crowd we have here.

The only way i see this changing is if you combined kills and assists as only one stat, or at the very least up the rewards for assists a little to encourage tanks.

Normal is the new practice. Don't expect many people to take team compositions seriously. In my experience playing ranked though, people are more than willing to play tanks and support, the only thing that people forget to bring is sustained damage.

Practice is practice. Normal is tryhard, but you are allowed to play your favourite heroes.

AoE slow, amazing CC that isolates an opponent for focus or de-rails their attempt at chasing a teammate, an ult that gives him damage reduction and regeneration (on top of amazing tower pushing).. how could anyone possibly see him as anything else?
Maybe because he's NOT a "real" tank? Maybe you need to get over the rage that he is a wonderful initiator to one person, and does little in a teamfight after that?

He is an off-tank. He is durable, but going straight tank with him makes him a non-threat after his Toss.

in ranked..some ppl tend to go overboard and spam tanks....and get raped by a mobility team thats is pusher like one with yi/ww/tf/veigar/teemo....the veigar just stuns and kites mid so that it takes them forever to get the turrets...and the rest just hit their turrets where they aren't.

That's if u have good coordination, if theres noobs who think theyll beat tank team by killin g them...then forget it u lost.

Most WW's I see are pretty good...they knw how to see the match in an overall perspective and make plans accordingly...very map aware.

I stopped playing solo because of that.
