You're not any more important than your teammates, every teammate must put in their part. Also, enemies matter just as much as your team, because you could win if they're simply bad enough ^^
I just want to say here that you do raise a good arguement.
I never mentioned how far apart they are in importance.
1. you are the "most" important as far as you should be concerned. By this I mean you are the one responsible for the plays you make and how you respond to the enemies plays. You are directly responsible for how well your personal game goes. All input you have into the game starts here. This does not mean that you run from a fight to save your own bacon and let your team mates die, even if it could have ended as a 2 for 1 trade in favour of your team (or better!) if you stayed and possibly died.
2. your team mates are the "second most" important only because of point 1. You are not responsible for their plays, but you ARE responsible for relying on them as your wingmen to secure victory. A good team should have the trust that their team mates will make good plays and you don't have to babysit or carry them yourself. You can make a certain level of input here via team chat/discussing strategies etc. These players are your PARTNERS in this game. Do what you can to help them out. By being responsible on your end for helping out your team mates (see point 1), they willl turn around and do teh same for you (hopefully)
3. your enemies are only third most (instead of second or first) because unlike 1 and 2 you don't have any actual input into their team. You can all chat with them or taunt them, but they are responsible for themselves, and the only responsibility you have is to kill them and give them a good game. Respect these people! They are putting in the same time as you are to enjoy a game. If they do bad, well, that's a bonus for you, but you do not have to gloat about it or call them down. If they do well and beat you, acknowledge that they played a better game then you, don't blame anyone but yourself (see point 1) for how your team played
My point is that this is a player controlled game, and all the players are the most important parts of the game. How they react to structures, gold income, dragon, buffs, jungle, etc, etc, all stems from one of these three points. so they are the MOST important things in the game.
again, it's a VERY fine line between each of those three, but that IS the order of importance. And if you happen to have a "bad team" that won't listen, then suck it up and do your best anyways, you're here to play, so play.
