Damage is too high, and the only way to climb is to play a hyper carry, preferably an early-game one.
The moment you want to play something for fun such as Lulu, Ivern or Anivia, you're usually placing the game in the hands of your teammates, praying that they follow up on your CC.
Hardstuck silvers like me were able to climb not because we're actually good, but because we get to play champs that 100-0 the enemy laner and have a million dashes. Yes, I'm admitting that I don't actually belong in my current elo. My mechanics and macros are awful, but I got here by being a meta slave. It's just really tiring. I want to feel like I still can control games when I play less damage oriented champions. Playing the same three champions against the same champion pool of 10 ish champions (Zed, Yasuo, Fizz, Ahri, Pyke, Lux, Renekton) is the least eventful thing ever.
