Has anyone completely switched their "main role" because of bad players?

I used to main top, but 75% of the games I played would have an ADC feeder (usually a double kill within the first 5 mins). I decided to learn ADC and improve upon it as much as I can so that I could prevent this. I know that you're supposed to know every role, but I was just wondering if anyone else left their "comfort zone" to branch out and try to prevent feeding.

Switched from mid to jungler to support. Gotta fill the roles that people are usually horrible at.

ADC is by far my best role but I wouldnt say I "main" anything. I only play adc in ranked because of what you mentioned, hard to win games late when your adc is brain dead. I play everything but adc when not playing ranked though

Played ADC in season 2 but got tired of watching top and mid do terrible and getting overran and focused late game. Swapped to mid at the end of season 2 and beginning of season 3 and again got tired of watching bot lane go 0/7 and dealing with their fed ADC even with me ganking their lane a ton. I have now swapped to jungle and sometimes support just so it is easier to keep all lanes from feeding or even make it so a somewhat braindead ADC on my team still does feed.

TLDR- Swapped to jungle to keep lanes from feeding.

why switch? someone will suck somewhere else, especially with the pessimistic/condescending attitude that is so very prevalent in this game.

I just play where I want to.

I started to main jungler because nobody wants to play it ever and I was sick of having duotops.

I get really excited when someone else plays jungle because then I get to mid or ADC, which I really enjoy.

Was support, added jungle because those are the two roles no one ever really wants to do.

For the longest time, I only played kennen mid or top since he was really the only person I played with. Since I stopped playing and restarted again due to finally getting a good comp, I started only really playing premades and ARAMs, so usually I just fill because my friends usually instalock or call a role at the very beginning. Now, I like never get Mid or Top since they're usually taken, which makes me pretty sad since I'm just too nice of a guy :|
