Chapter 2.0 - Balancing the Team Composition

How do I know what type of jungler to choose?
If you have the ability to, you want to balance your team composition:
If your team has a weak front-line; Tanky Tank/Support.
If your team has little CC; CC-Heavy Tank/Support.
If you team has a decent defensive front-line; Damage-First Semi-Carry
If your team has a decent offensive front-line; Tank-First Semi-Carry
If your team has a strong tanky front-line; Carry

With experience, you will be able to pick the "perfect" jungler(s) for your team composition.
