Teach me how to carry from top lane.

How do people like Dyrus do this? 100 percent of the time my mid and bot do absolutely terrible, and even if I got 8/0 I am still unable to carry my team. I am not complaining about the other lanes, I just want some tips on how I can carry a team that is doing extremely poorly? Should I just keep pushing? What if the jungler just camps my lane and my jungler just continues to farm the jungle? How do I make a play by myself?

I am basically asking for things that I can do. Assume that my teammates do nothing, and will do absolutely nothing to help me accomplish an objective. Because I just had a game like this.

You can get someone who is good at ganking and gank, you can get someone who is great at counterjungling and counter jungle either red or blue, you can put wards on the enemy buffs, you can out CS them, you can get a pusher and never leave top.

In this particular game I was playing Darius. Their lee sin camped me, but I could easily 1v2. Unfortunately, keeping the jungler top had no impact on any of the other lanes, as they were self sufficiently killing my team.

Play an actual carry like Draven, build defensively to stalemate with your lane opponent and farm your ass off. When teamfights come late game your team will have a second badass ready to go.

The secret to winning game from top lane is to not stay top lane.

It doesn't matter in the slightest how fed you are if you aren't putting that to use. Killing the enemy top over and over doesn't achieve anything. It's their bad player keeping your teams good player busy, that's a win in their book.

Take teleport if possible, Push hard, get 1-2 kills early, take top, and GTFO. Go murder mid a few times, bot a few times, counter jungle. Don't sit top and farm.
What do you do when faced with two choices? Simply toss a coin. It works because in that brief time that the coin is in the air you know what you're hoping for.

Alternatively, I've won a lotta games from behind as Nid by never LEAVING top lane.

So there's that.

Win your lane and force teamfights (and win them) before the enemy adc has last whisper

Get fed in your lane. Ward the enemies' jungle. Kill the jungler when he enters it. Gank mid.
