I agree with this and disagree.
Not all of us play carries for one. Also, not all of us are 1700+ players. I don't believe that a 1500 or so player can carry one unranked, a 1300, 1350 and 1400 player, especially when that unranked player belongs at around 1000. Compounded by the other team possibly not having that same person because they could just as well have a second 1300 player with 200 games played that is WAY better than the unranked player. But since the person has not played enough they are considered to be in the same class when matchmaking gets the teams together.
You also have to assume that the other team is going to have at least one player that is as good as your best player.
At the same time, I have learned how to better help the team mates that are not doing well and that seems to be making all the difference. I don't feel that it is so much "carry the team" because that imply's that you get all of the kills. I think that you need to learn how to compensate for your team mates weaknesses.
I think that a very clear example of this would be having a Garen on your team in a fairly even game and Garen takes a lot of the kills with his ult. A good player would let the actual carries get the last hits instead of ulting. This is often not the case though, and this Garen might come out 10-3 or something when the carries are 5-5 or something and believe that he did better than they did. When he in fact gimped them in order for his own KDR to be higher.
This is higher level of play that most do not understand and it is very hard to explain to people. Only getting kills is not always the best thing to do in a game, and "carry the team" only makes people think of getting kills.
