Why are there so many adc mains at the top. Top 3 is literally Turtle, Sneaky and Vasilii.

because when you're as good as they are you can easily carry lower elos to make it to the higher elo where ADCs are better protected by their teammates, so then their mechanical skill can shine much more strongly and they can carry so much more often because their teammates give them a much better chance to excel


also they usually duo with their LCS support teammate so they're going to stomp botlane and then once they're hella fed they go ham and wreck everybody

I know that last season, when the highest MMR player always had bans/first pick, turtle said he just always banned champs that he didn't want to play against as an ADC.

And what about bronze-level solo Q, where nobody knows how to support and suicides to engage and expects the adc to follow up? Every time?

Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?

in bronze level solo Q if you have any LCS caliber ADCs they are going to carry hard no matter how full on potato their team is.


I watch fatefalls, have watched him for a very very long time. He's a diamond 1/low challenger level mid laner that mains fizz. When Lucian was released he made a new account called "Best Driveby NA" that was Lucian only. He barely ever plays ADC and if he does have to ADC he usually plays Caitlyn, but he still made it to high gold with a plat MMR before he got bored and moved on because his mechanics are so much better than the mechanics of the people at those lower elos that he would destroy them all anyway.


If you're in bronze level solo Q and you belong there you won't be able to carry every single game no matter what role or champ you use.

Because ADCs carry the hardest out of any role now that the game has shifted towards longer games.

They've been top since forever. Turtle had 3 accounts in top 10 last year. And 7 of the top 10 players on EUW were ADCs a few months ago. Its probably the duo queue part as well as the mechanical superiority of these players.
