Ok guys, I have a doubt that I'm sure everyone had once. So, I usually play adc, and I have no problem farming at all, and I'm well aware that this is of most importance as an ad carry.

The thing is, I realise the way I do teamfights can improve, a lot. What usually happens is that the enemy team make a front line in the teamfight with their fighters and tanks, and I try to focus the enemy AP or AD carry, but to do that, I have to dive past this front line. Everyone always say "Focus the carry, dont focus the tanks". Ok, sure, I understand that. But how am I supposed to get to their ad or ap carry? If I actually manage to get past their front line, I'll be in the exact middle of the enemy team, with ad and ap carrys in front of me, and their tanks/fighters in my back. I think I dont have to say I wont survive for more than 2 seconds.

So, one might say "Then focus their front line, do whatever you can to stay alive and hit anyone you can". Ok, but if I focus their tanks, I will do less dps, I wont be as usefull to my team, I will be doing exactly what they want me to do [focus their tank] and I often get those "OMFG WTF NOOB DONT FOCUS THE TANK" in chat.

So, help a new player here guys. What the hell am I supposed to do? I honestly cant figure this out by myself, and believe me, I tried.

Have in mind I'm talking about a generic teamfight here, where the 2 teams face each other directly, without the possibility of me taking an alternative path to appear behind the enemy team and get their carrys.

Focus whatever is posing the biggest threat to you, or if there's nothing attacking you go for the squishiest target you can hit without getting in too much danger. Your job as an AD is to stay alive at all costs.

When in doubt just attack the closest target.

Exactly what luther said. Usually you go for closest target.
Like he said your job is to stay alive, so having an AP carry / ADc in your AA range is most likely impossible (unless they're bad at positioning).
AD carry got HIGH damage against tanks too, if your team tell you "stop focusing the tank" and you're getting peeled off by one, stop listening to them. You're pretty much the only that can get down that tank. Only in rare occasion you can touch high value targets (AD Carry, AP carry)

ty xaiolu for the sign :3
