If you had a T2 Tristana, T2 Poppy, were on the way to T3s for them, had a T2 Veigar, T2 Lulu, and had a Kennen...you'd go for Yordle 6, right? Easy enough! Gnar spawns in the carousel often enough and he's readily available in rolls once you're around level 6-8.
...Not. one. Gnar. spawned. I checked across the board. Not a single one of the eight players had so much as a single Gnar. Not on the field, not on the bench. Not a single Gnar appeared in the carousel. Not a single Gnar appeared when I spam rerolled 12+ times literally in a position where I went from 50 gold to 0 gold rerolling, looking for so much as a single Gnar to get the damn Yordle 6.
He. never. did.
I had another similar match with Sejuani. She always spawns. Always. And yet. When I needed her for I believe it was Glacial 6 Knight 4. She. never. appeared. In spite of that same level range, spam rerolling.
Another recent game I had literally zero T2 units and literally zero real synergies. I had like...wild 2 knight 2 shapeshifter 2 (you don't get the bonus until 3) and that was it. You know why? Because literally nothing was rolling which gave me any synergies at all. I couldn't make any comp work. I know how to make any comp I am given work, and work well...but none existed at all.
I had a ton of stuff on my bench, but none of it would create any synergies. I was picking up literally everything I could while still economizing and yet nothing I picked up could create any synergy at all.
And I've been having match. after match. after match. after match. like that. Where the game either gives me literally nothing at all (oh and by the way in about 90% of my games I got gold instead of items from creeps a good 75% of the time...and in the remaining 10% of the time, got items which don't combine into something actually useful, or which combine into something useful for a unit I don't have).
I work ridiculously well with the hands I am given.
I know what comps work and what items are needed to make any given comp work and what comps work best for which items. I can flex my items to my comp and my comp to my items. I know when a T1 is more valuable than a T2 and I know when an ability is better than a synergy and I know when a synergy is better than an ability and so on and so forth.
But when the game. keeps. screwing. me. over.
And literally nothing I could do would change the outcomes of those games.
Where there was no decision I could have made that would have made me not lose, where every path, every position, every combo, every comp, I could have run, given the rolls I got and my positioning in the carousel.
It's a little...shall we say.
