C/D: You should be competent at every role if you want to play ranked

D. Knowing more roles is good, but not everyone is good at every role. Support just doesn't click for some people, or jungleing, or one of the lanes. The more you know the better, but REQUIRED? No.

EX: It really helps your guild out in WoW if you can play a tank, single-target healer, raid healer, ranged DPS, and melee DPS. Should you be expected to know every one of those roles? No.

you should be able to play all roles to some extent.

but apparently the ticket to higher ratings is to specialize.

Yes, the key word was competent. At least, when almost all of the roles were all called up, or you're the last pick, at least suck it up and have a mind of taking up the responsibility given to you, whether you like it or not.
This is a signature.

You don't have to know every role but you should know more than one, especially jungler OR support. You have to know one of those roles or you will constantly have problems in queue if you are low in pick order. Being able to play 3 roles is probably ideal and if you do get forced into a role you know you are terrible at, then suck it up and queue dodge unless you want to lose elo.
