Ok this topic is going to be quite controversial and it will base solely on my experience.
I've played LoL since S4 and have 3 accounts.
The first one I mostly played ADC, the second one is my main account which I only played jungler.
And the third one I just climb for my brother mainly played top and mid.

I am not a very skilled player like many people here so it's not easy for me to 1v5 my way to high ELO using Urgot for example. So, I stick with the meta and champs that I felt comfortable with and pretty much go serious on every game I played.

Here are things that I discovered:

If you want to climb ELO with light speed Jungler for me is the easiest role to climb all the way to Plat.

Why? Because in Bronze people basically ignore jungler counter-gank/invade are rare and often predictable. Warding suck balls, you can gank and kill same person twice in less than 3 minute using the same route ( yes that's what happened ).

Playing jungler eliminate the fact that you need to rely on people and people now need to rely on YOU.
Since you don't have to worry about CS now you can focus on making play.
And boys... making play is SOOOO important in low ELO.

Try making new account now and play using only someone like Hecarim Warwick in bronze.
I bet you guys can pretty much win at least 6 games streak even one of your team go AFK.

You can climb all the way to Gold or Plat playing only carry-oriented jungler and then after you reached that level of ELO you switch to play other roles.

In lower ELO poeple usually put blame jungler then why not became a jungler yourself and carry your butt out of there?

In theory this game is about team work and in higher ELO it's true.
But in reality you need to think that you may be put in position where your team suck and you need to do pretty much everything by yourself.

In that case playing champion that can do many things by themselves is a very good way to solve the problem.

This is a very funny thread and It's something I already thought about it. I tried every role in the game except jungle because I find it hard to learn how to do it, without being terrible in the start. I've been watching tons of videos to start jungling and I'm kinda scared but I'll do it anyway. My main role is probably ADC and I find it very hard to leave low elo (currently silver V) because I rely a lot on my support. If I have a good support probably I will get a good game or atleast maintain our lane. But if I have a bad support, either He will feed, or won't help me, or get bad decisions etc. When I play I don't like to rely on the jungler because I never know what I will find out. So either If i'm top, mid or adc, I will try to play safely to make sure that even if the jungler wont come to help me, I will be fine. That's not possible 100% of the times but can be managed.
But you are right, if the jungler is a good, he can pretty much fed early game and carry it to late game as giving assists to the several lanes or even kills and snowball it. Definitly must learn to jungle!

I respect all ADC main out there because its so hard to climb without a good support duo.
If your support is bad its pretty much gg (at least for me) and now tank/assassin got buffed to the sky so it's even harder than it usually was XD.

Another good thing about jungler is that you can play whatever you want to play.
There are :
Tank Jungler EX : Sejuani Rammus
Assassin Jungler EX : Kayn Kha'Zix Rengar Evelynn
Fighter Jungler EX : Vi Warwick Lee Sin
ADC Jungler EX : Kindred Graves
Support Jungler EX : Nunu & Willump Ivern
Mage Jungler EX : Brand (I used to play him in S5-6 and it's fun) Fizz Fiddlesticks

It's really fun to play XD
Just play some games in pub and when you're confident you can move to rank.

I agree that jungler is the best role there to carry in low elo. Of course, one must know how to play jungle, and know when to make the right calls!

You can also carry by playing Champs whose mecanics are unknown to most of the noobs such as: Mordekaiser, Yorick, Urgot, Malzahar, Evelynn, Vladimir, Rumble, ...

Also, if you're auto-filled Support, never play Champs that are meant to be full utility like Janna and Thresh... Play something offensive like Brand, Lux, Blitzcrank, ...etc.

Weavile, I choose you!

Yea, jungler pretty much is the best role for low elo climbing. Especially with WW, Sejuani etc.
But bruh, you got no idea how hard it is to us ADC Mains..I mean even in higher elo, there are still people that are just bad af as support, and dont use common sense..

Jungler and Support are the best roles to climb from bronze to gold.

In particular I've seen that Nocturne is one of the best jungler to climb,

because you can farm until level six and then just gank every time you have your ultimate.

It is very safe, because you stick in your jungle, and when you gank, you have an assured kill or a flash, so if you fail to kill somebody you can still get an objective like dragon or herald.

Supports on the other hand depends much more on team composition and personal play-style, but I think that Bard and Thresh are always solid picks.

The more you roam during laning phase, the more you can be usefull to your team and carry the game!

I think support is the best role to climb, also jungle! With a good support u can carry ur adc, or give him good backup to become a beast! Otherwhise u can carry him if its a auto filled adc.. in the lategame u can carry a whole teamfight with a good ult or a good peel! You can protect ur team from feeding and u can give ur team a chance to become big! Thats my opinion ..((Sorry for my english))
