To completely ignore the champs available in the carousel, you would have to be an idiot. Sure, sometimes a champ you need or want isnt there, so you pick the champ thats worth the most gold and sell it. But why wouldnt you take a draven in carousel and hope more Dravens become available as the game progresses? ? >so you pick the champ thats worth the most gold and sell it. ???????? You use the carousel almost EXCLUSIVELY for items. Items are extremely limited, and you need ones that buff up your 2* and 3* units. The only time you should use the carousel for champions is when it gives you a crucial upgrade to an extremely powerful unit (Draven, Swain, ASol, etc.) or when it's the last champion you need to complete a late-game comp. Fishing for units is extremely inefficient and risky, and instead of using your head you're throwing your win to RNG and then complaining that RNG isn't good.
Ok, so then you agree with me after disagreeing with me....You use carousel to pick champs if a good champ, like Draven is available. But you never responded to the situation I painted for you: You get 1 Draven, or maybe 2 Dravens but a 3rd never drops. Is that luck or skill?

You trade him in for the gold and pick another good champ like Katarina, and only 1 more Kat drops the rest of the game. How do you win TFT with that sort of luck? That happens all the time. Oh, you use carousel for the characters. Lmao that's all I needed to hear.

: If you're losing, you have the opportunity to get the strongest items off the carousel for making a comp. You literally get first pick at making your late-game comp if you're behind. If you're losing fights, you can restructure your units. You can choose new champions to put items on. The only glaring issue, # of items distributed, is already considered a problem Riot is working on fixing. But even with bad RNG, there's a reason the best players win consistently. They have the game knowledge on how to pivot their comp, take advantage of good events and bad ones alike, and will always find a way to stay relevant. Saying TFT is all luck/RNG is what bad players say to soothe their ego after being unable to pull a win when they spend all their gold at stage 3 on rerolls, lmao.

: TFT Champ Pool is so unbalanced.
Ok, so Ive played about 25 TFT matches so far. This game mode has absolutely nothing to do with skill whatsoever, and its all about luck and RNG. Its not fun to play. If you dont get the item drops, youre facing a player that may have 3-4 fully completed items while you have 1 completed item, maybe 2. You wont win that fight. You cant outplay the other person, their items outscale yours. Its not like in Summoners Rift where good positioning, vision and smart moves can allow the lesser fed team to win team fights. In TFT you cant control what items drop and when they drop. You cant control which champs are made available to you. Youre level 2 Vayne has no chance against their level 3 Graves. TFT is all about luck and RNG. Its a shame, becuase this game mode could have been fun, but if the RNG doesnt favor you, especially in the first 3 rounds vs minions, you've already lost.
