Why do people prefer Top/Mid over everything?

#1JackDaniels1964Posted 2/2/2013 8:36:04 AM
I've noticed a lot of Top/Mid or I feed in this community, and what's so attractive about those two roles? For Mid it's definitely not the easiest since you have to either win lane, or roam hard, and for Top it's all about personal skills and counter picks.

So why are a lot people first picking Top/Mid? I have no idea...
PS Apparently some people don't know how to ADC/Support/Jungle.

Solo lane, some people don't like sharing a lane with someone else.

Because top is easy and mid is best to carry with.

You don't have to rely on a support that might feed or throw the game (If ADC). You dont need to babysit a crappy ADC (Support). You dont want everyone to blame you for losing (Jungler).

Mid is the most fun at first glance. It's also one people assume to be the strongest to help carry to a win for solo-queue.
Top seems most difficult and others don't trust strangers with hard things. It's also fun and, depending on the champ, can carry the team to victory.

At least that's what I think. Everybody on my smurf account I play with all bum-rush the two lanes.

ADC and support are bad because you have to deal with someone else in your lane.

Jungling is bad because everyone flames you because you haven't got 10 kills before the 2 minute mark.

I mostly mid and jungle and it's because in low elo proper ganks are quite easy due to the lack of wards and you can help snowball the lanes, thus help the team carry itself, mid in order to carry harder.

I find quite a bit of people that enjoy jungling, but ADC and support are definitely the least loved roles. I think people dislike ADC because they're expected to win lane, carry hard, and not die (which can be tough, given you're a glass cannon and your support can be as bad as you).

Support is disliked for more obvious reasons: your job is to babysit a glass cannon, watch the minimap, and you buy "boring" items that benefit others rather than yourself.
