I mean... all that's proving is that Riot's old decision, to replace elo with LP+MMR so that they could *pretend* to punish people with LP loss instead of actually taking away their elo they should have lost for forfeiting a game, is undermining a system that otherwise works just fine.

Hahahah yeah right. 5 AD comps do fine in this meta because buying defense is useless. The only real problem is when your team picks 4 AD champions _that have no CC._

CCing the enemy is the only way to increase your survival time when you'll just get 3-shot in a second and a half by the ADC through your 3k health and 300 armor.

The same meta we have *every* season, Pinky. The ADC meta.

I feel like he has far less counterplay in lane if you're a melee now. He's also an immobile melee though so there's not much he can do in this meta.

I have _one lane_ I can bring my melees to, and I still get taken to the woodshed by non-interactive ranged picks, I think it's reasonable to be upset about that? Oh right I forgot melees aren't allowed to have fun in this game, they're just supposed to be CC bots to support the real champions.

No need to worry, even during the time where bot lane was a literal 5 man gank party *all game long* and ADC mains were whining all over the forums about how underpowered they were, ADCs were still required on both teams apart from a small span of like two weeks where you *might* see a ziggs on one of the teams.

Even if I'm against plat or diamonds I will play safe and make plays off my jungle Dude I'm plat and I've had plenty 20+ death games. They can happen for a multitude of reasons. Simply losing lane to a snowbally champion can get you 20 deaths if laning phase lasts a while. Getting camped by a smurf who just thinks it's funny to make somebody miserable. An enemy team purposely gunning for you to make your team rage or just to rack up their kill counts. Being a melee and having to act as a meat shield because it's the only thing you can contribute to your team due to a bad game. Your entire team gets shit stomped and the enemy Blitz and his 4 teammates sit outside your fountain and repeatedly hook and instagib you for over 5 minutes because they find it fucking hilarious. I have seriously been a part of a game like this, two teammates refused to surrender because they were assholes, and blitz and friends refused to end because they were also assholes. Oh and then there's the games where your team doesn't like you so they intentionally bait you into fights and then leave you to die. I've even had a game where I got level 1 cheesed by a Darius and proceeded to die to him 20 times underneath my tower because it was either I walk to lane and try to grab some CS and experience and then get 1 combo killed under my tower, or I sit afk in my base and get banned by leaver buster. There's all kinds of ways you can end up with 20 deaths.
: Riot says Losing Lane is INTING, no matter the ranks you're against. They deleted my post.
Just checked the stats page. I gotta ask, wtf are you guys looking at? He had nearly as many deaths on his own side of the map as on the other side of the map. "All his deaths were overextended" is clearly not true. It's pretty fuckin obvious that the ones that happened near the enemy base are *probably* during teamfights or the player is just not very good. They are also spread out like you would expect and not any sort of apparent run-in-and-feed. He *also* has kills on Lee Sin interspersed between his deaths to Ornn unlike what one of you here claimed, so unless Lee Sin was intentionally giving him kills it's highly unlikely he was running in to die on purpose.
: "Xerath, why didn't you ping MIA?"
"An Ally Was Slain!" That means his lane opponent is now MIA so watch the fuck out.

It's just his team peeling. It's not peeling, peeling would involve not letting the ADC get hit or taking the damage for him, it's a glass cannon flat out tanking everything thrown at him.
: Fun fact of the day
This thread is retarded. You really think it's okay for your highest damaging champion (by far) with no defenses built to tank the entire burst of an enemy team? Why should anyone build tank when your ADC can tank literally everything.
: We All Wanted ADCs To Be A Bit More Impactful
ADCs have always been impactful. Obviously the players suffered when the meta revolved around "gank the important role, take first tower, take dragon, gank the most important role again to make sure he can't get up off the floor, go back to buy, then just 5-man gank the sucker again" but that doesn't mean the champions in that role were weak. Horribly unfun and depressing to play due to Riot's awful dragon and tower changes? Absolutely. Weak? Hell no. Why do you think people 5-man ganked them so often? Because if you didn't, you'd probably lose.
: Part of the reason ADCs are so "strong" is that defensive tools across the board are too strong.
Then why do I get instagibbed constantly when I try to play league? Seriously, I can build straight tank on a bruiser but unless my kit comes with massive shields or heals or mobility or invulnerability or CC I just flat out die constantly. A single gank near my own tower will result in me getting 100-0'd within a single CC combo regularly. It's not even fun to play with this shit happening constantly. So how can defensive tools be too strong?

Holy crap you don't know that poke supports almost always have the highest "damage to champions" at the end of the game? I get the most damage to champions all the time when I play support AP Nasus, but that doesn't mean AP Nasus is bursting people in teamfights. Also if Morde is mid-game... if he's at 6 items it means the game has gone way too long for him and he's going to start losing to... well... pretty much *every* dps champion. *Especially* if they have the ranged advantage.

: I mean... If you can 1v2 the enemy team you should be splitting. Taking down side turrets while your team pushes mid/objectives. Opponent team won't be able to stop you without sending 2-3 people after you, giving them a huge disadvantage in teamfights. Even if you do die to multiple opponents, you gave your team time to take objectives or push a lane and get more kills. It's a win/win. If you team wants to be toxic just let them. You're still benefitting the team whether they know it or not.

: Tank meta exists specifically because of CC.
There is also too much mobility (and invulnerability). Riot keeps adding it to counter CC and then they're like OH... we need more CC for these champs with hyperfrickingmobility out the waazo and so they add even *more* CC on new champions.

If you get a chance go for it, but usually you'll have to walk past the ADC to get to the support and you usually won't survive long enough to get to them.
