Hard to say but if you have a competent ADC and everyone becomes his own personal meatshield then you can go places.

So long as you are the support, I agree. ADC with crap support can get shut down easily by two OK players, even with a great ADC. No matter how good you are at tower farming, if their adc is 5-0 b/c your support is MAHAMALAAAA JIHAD-ing into 0-5 during laning, you're not gonna have a good time.

The fact that people didn't answer top shows how wrong people are. =\

Top is one of the easiest lanes to carry from because you are by yourself. Once you know you can clearly dominate top you can counter jungle, you can gank mid. That secures a lead for your jungler and mid. It then frees up your jungler to gank mid and bottom only while drawing their jungler up towards you giving your team a literal 4v3 at mid and bottom lane. All they need to do now is just lane as good as the opponent team and you will win the game.

It's harder to carry from mid because that's gank territory there. So many mid matchups are dependent on who has the better jungler or who ganks harder and ganks more. If you have a great jungler you're possibly stuck ganking for all lanes limiting your ability to impact the game. The jungler isn't there to offset the team's inability to cope with disadvantageous lanes. The jungler is there to free up exp and cs for an extra lane while giving better map awareness and control as well as a certain layer of unpredictability to turning mid and top into 2v1 lanes during a gank and bottom into a 3v2 lane during a gank. You can have a great jungler but if even just one or two of your lanes end up being sub par you can lose it pretty hard. Whereas at top even if mid and bottom suck you can still win your lane much more easily by not having jungler bother you as much as at mid, not having to depend on your team to not suck like in jungle. Win top. Gank and dive for mid. Counter jungle and shut down enemy jungler. Then your team snowballs from there.

I already highlighted the issues with mid being that it is infested with ganks but for ADC, it's a 2v2 lane. You can have a great ADC player up against two average players at bottom lane. Then you give the great ADC player a scrubby Leona or something that doesn't know how to assist, doesn't know how to make plays, and the great ADC player ends up getting zoned out and requesting help from jungler and mid while mid is being pushed, and jungler is busy trying to help top and mid stay relevant because he knows there is only so much of an impact he can make at bottom now that his ADC is three levels behind and short on 50 cs.

==============

That said, you can carry, be relevant, win from any lane and any position, really. It's mostly just about not making mistakes and team composition at 1800 elo and below.

Mid.

Easiest lane to get fed in and easiest lane to gank from.




Side note: Darius top almost takes it single handed. A fed Darius top can easily just pick the match up and run with it through several marathons and maybe when the Tour de France without a bike.

Top, and me mid.

If we're constantly coordinating ganks and what not, that magic could rub off onto the sub-par baddies.

Jungle.

I 1v4'd as a fed Amumu.

ADCs need a decent team to shine.

TC, are you asking that I am one of the roles, and I have ANOTHER great player on my team? Because I always have one great player on my team, it's me! =)

Stanley on Nidalee (top lane). The rest of us have the job of hanging onto our turrets while he drags more and more enemies top and wins the game.
