Does no one like to top in ranked anymore?

For like the past week Ive gotten top role almost every single time ive asked for it. Even when Im near the bottom of the pick order. Its great because its what Im best at but am really surprised that Ive been allowed to. Is it just that Ive gotten incredibly lucky lately or are more and more people getting the role they "call" when playing ranked draft?

Mid/Jungle have more influence on a game
A lot of Duos prefer bot Duo.

Top is that isolated island of forever alone, some enjoy it and some don't. I guess your teammates lately don't.

Top is what everyone I play with seems to want...

I like to think its because they can pick a bruiser, avoid team play, then rage at bot lane if they do bad, but never step up to help them out.
It's like mid, but without the pressure to roam and carry.

I dunno. I see ADC/Top/Mid called equally. I'm always left with jungle or support.

"Noone whom I play with" is super unclear.

The only way to influence the early game from top lane is if you can force the enemy jungler to spend a lot of time top, and even then your team can lose what is essentially a 4v3 from there. If you're mid or jungle, you can more easily help your team get ahead early.

oh im going solo queue lol sry about that, i mean the first 2 people 80% of the time always picks top and mid and they have the most influence in the game when they get countered so its really not good practice but yeah randoms are randoms
