Carrying as top...

You guys totally ignored the fact that I do not want to switch lanes or champions... But you are making it seem more and more that that is a requirement. Which to me seems like BS, why would anybody ever want to play top (or support)?

@SovietBlade, I know how to play all the roles (some not as well as others), I just like top a lot more. If you check out my stats, you will learn that I do not in fact have a charming kdr, I peel, gank mid, invade jungle, etc. As expected of a decent top. I am confident enough to say I know how to teamfight. I will give you an example: I was playing lee sin. All of my team but me was mid (including malz with ult available). The other teams jungle was farming top, their adc was bot. 3 were mid. I went behind one of them, kicked them into my team. My team almost didn't react at all, ended up chasing the person I kicked. Then the rest of the enemy team joined us mid, and destroyed us. And I was *****ed at for starting a 5 v 5.

@youmadbroimnasty what do you mean?

He's suggesting you solo bot.

Not really. I can do it with Singed, Yorick, Nidalee, etc.

It's still not as viable as adc support bottom. And those are either unkillable champs (singed) or ranged champs that have no problems farming or harassing a 2v1 lane.

That's the point. You send your adc/support top so they can kill the $#@! out of their top lane Darius or whatever.

have your jungle feed you like hell. if you get all those kills top and shut down their top, you should be able to hyper carry

jungle and mid are best ways to carry a game

I was a 1200 elo player in s2 because I kept trying to play top/bot to carry, but now I'm 1500+ just from going 8-1 win record as TF mid in my placement matches in s3

you made your team lose by going rumble support rofl

doesn't matter how fed you were, you made your team lose a valuable role with a true support champ
