    Took about 8 seconds to think of 2 reasons.
    1. Number of teeth engaged to carry "the load".
    2. Number of times a tooth is engaged by the chain per distance traveled.

    Which FDER do you have?
    It may not be compatible with "road" shifters, if a "mountain" type.
    RDER should be fine.

    As I mentioned, you have exceeded the chain wrap capacity of that RDER!
    It has a capacity of 43T.
    Your gearing needs a wrap of 45T.
    (50-30) + 36-11) = 45
