"Need Tank!"

What is with this? Every few games I get someone spamming this, never mind we have no lane support for our carry, we need a tank apparently...

People who have played too many MMOs.

I don't understand it really. The only character I even consider tanky in this game at this point is axe, everyone else dies pretty easy until they are farmed.

Yes, I changed my sig.. Why was I still acting like I care about that game anyway?

I actually had something like this happen once.

*I pick Clockwerk because we could use someone to initiate and because I want to play him*
N00b: Clock, you're tanking, right?
Me: No.
N00b: But we need a tank.
Me: If we needed a tank, I'd have picked Axe.
N00b: But you picked Clockwerk.
Me: (To friend on Skype) Well no ****. How long til he figures out that I'm ****ing with him?
Friend: Probably never.

Couldn't take damage worth a damn that game either because I couldn't get any farm. >_>

In RTS tanks are units that are at the frontlines that are usually first to go into battle. MMO's defintion of tanks does not apply to RTS games. Some tanks in Dota Tidehunter, Centaur, Clockwork, and Brewmaster. The term tanks have been used in RTS games since before MMO's ever hit mainstream. Hell in was used in WC3 before WoW even came out.

In RTS tanks

Surely in RTS games the tanks are literally tanks?
