you have 3 melee dps, 1 ranged dps and an ap caster. What do you expect? Get rid of all melee dps except for udyr, who is built as tanky melee dps, get a better ranged dps than tf, lux is ok, but u could get like kat or karthus or some other aoe caster, then get amumu and malphite, two solid initiating tanks.

This is a normal game, so there's no excuse for poor champ selection.

You have no traditional tank and no way to really initiate safely in a full teamfight. To win champion battles, you'd have to catch one or two of them alone in the jungle to take them out, otherwise their myriad of CC and resilience will just outlast you. The solution to this is to avoid full teamfights as much as possible, ward up the map and push lanes they aren't near. Even with Teleport on their part, your full team is much more capable of tearing turrets down quickly than theirs, so focus on that. Don't stick in one spot for too long, either, as they have plenty of CC to chain you to death.

Basically, "tank teams" win against players that think the only things you can do in game are 5v5 teamfights and backdooring. Do other tactics.

Quoted for emphasis.

Get ganks when you can to tip the odds in your favor, never engage them in a toe-to-toe brawl; you won't win. With the minion buffs pushing lanes is not only a viable option, it's often the best idea...they can't afford to ignore a minion blob chewing up a tower. Push two lanes at the same time so they have to either split up or lose a tower, then try for a gank at wherever they're weakest. With both Lux and GP on your team you really shouldn't be having trouble chasing down low HP champs.

Also be as aggressive as you can safely be in the early game...deny all the gold you can, exercise a huge zone of control (again, Lux and GP are great for this). If they want the gold to finish their frozen heart they should have to travel through a horrible world of pain to get it.

You don't have any real initiator. Yeah, you got potential ganks, and perhaps a large part of your troubles wind up to be user error, but beyond that, you have no real person that jumps in there and gets their positioning skewed. Amumu, Blitz, etc. do wonders against the team. Shut down Karma or the support/squishy that they have.

If none of you want to play a tank....well you might as well sit in spawn as you can't even seem to cooperate with each other, let alone coordinate in-game.

Madred's bloodrazor is definitely one of the best things to have against a tank. It does 8 percent magic damage of their max health i think...something like that.
