just remember... lane phase can't win games, lane phase can only lose games.
Pings, wards and coordination wins games.
If you go by that mentality, you don't carry games. you win WITH your team.
Man, I wasn't at home, just wanted to read the boards cause I'm on hold with some tech support. This post and this mindset made me log in, because wtf?!?!?!
So the term "carrying" has a negative connotation to you? I don't understand honestly. He can use whatever term he likes to say "leading". Leading, carrying, they mean the exact same thing.
If you're doing well, making good calls, and have your team following you... as support... you are carrying. You're keeping the map warded, you're directing the team to this fight or that fight, pinging retreats at the guy who wants to chase, etc etc.
To carry, you can't be an ass in game. You have to do well, and the team will naturally follow you. Just last night, my team was getting wiped out in team fight phase, but our twitch was doing AMAZING. I was playing Karma as AP mid, and instead of following my tanks like I normally do, I instead decided to follow this twitch. Me and him turned the game around together, and the team as a whole started to follow us.
Not because we nagged them, not because we really even said anything. But because we were doing well and nobody else was managing to do well. Our support was subpar, so as mid, I bought 2 stacks of wards and got vision on every god damn bush in their jungle. We proceeded to mop them up.
I didn't have to say anything, but I helped to carry that game, not with my score, but with my decisions.
I don't know why you are upvoted, just shows how childish people are about being "told what to do".
