Being good at the new threes is all about trust and communication. Solo queue is inherently chaotic, and would not work on this format.
My two cents.
It generally depends on how you communicate in champ select. I always try to get my teammates to NOT play squishies because I don't have time to babysit them to some lategame builds. The thing is, some champions aren't good at SR, as some champions aren't good at TT.
However, I'm really hoping S3 will bring more of a balance to things. Yet and still, you can't win a game of 3 squishies versus 3 tankies without being pushed to your last tower(s).
edit: forgot to say I've won most of my solo queue TT games, both old and new map.
