How to carry as support? If i'm last pick all the time I better learn how.
posted
Learn to properly posture and trade in lane. Keep bush control. The amount of supports I see who just sit behind me (AD main) and not do anything at all makes me sad. Have presence and make sure the enemy knows you're there ready to fuck them up if they step too close. When a fight happens, position yourself so that the enemy wants to hit you instead of the AD. Don't stand on the edge of auto attack range and try to take as little damage as possible. I see people try to play support like they're a carry and it's wrong way to play. Every ability or auto put on you instead of the AD significantly improves the chance of winning the fight.

Or just play Annie.

Annie, got it.
But seriously, thanks.

It's either Annie where you go and outdamage everything 1v2.

Or Leona, where you go melee lvl 1 and start slapping people in the gabber. If your AD is following and shooting while enemies are like "wtf dis guy doin", you back off and keep getting levels waiting to smack opponents. If your AD is all "wtf Leona noob don't go in I need to cs" start pleading your jungler to gank.

But in all seriousness, just try to create opportunities for your team or at least notice those that people miss being too busy pvping or gathering creep gold. Your damage is going to be lacking later in the game, given you build traditionally, so build to be able to tank some hits and elude forth the enemy backline and back to those in need during fights. Disrupt as much as you can (seriously, as much as you can, build a bloody Rylai's on Soraka and be a Singed). Watch out for useful auras not picked up by your team and situations where you should build a Crucible.

Ward things. Don't underestimate pink ward baiting potential.

Don't be a Leona ulting and Zenith blading enemy carry only to leave your silly AD behind to be destroyed by that top laner.

At least with Annie you need the slightlest idea of how to support , my friends that main support say that with her it's the easiest to carry on soloQ, but if you suck at it, just go for leona, leona is FULL YOLO. EASY, and you can 1vs1 the ad carry way too easy
posted
Leona is simply perfect for soloq. An initiate that is signalised fast enough for your enemies to be unable to walk out of it completely without losing a dash but not fast enough for your teammates to miss it and not react properly.

Gap closer that stuns chainable into another stun.

Resistance steroid that makes you just brush off most mistakes you do.

And free damage for teammates that will be fully procked in teamfights even if you suck dick at chaining the passive well.

Just get that 40 armor page and go for it, champion.

Sun fucking power.

Annie and Leona, got it. How about Lulu, any opinions or advice?

Doubt we have any Lulu enthusiasts around here.

She's strong but whole lot less forgiving if you misuse/miss something.

Depends on tier you're in. Leona is basically a free win below Platinum. She's strong in every division but she can literally carry Bronze/Silver/Gold games alone. Otherwise, Annie and Thresh are strong picks.

Lulu is great if you have hypercarries or just carries that can provide consistent damage in teamfights, but not champions like Varus, Ez or Miss Fortune (unless of course you just want to wreck enemies in laning phase, in which case she goes really well with those champions. But I personally pick her more for survivability she provides for ADC in teamfights so I avoid having those ADCs in team when picking Lulu). She requires more skill than Leona/Annie and is usually less rewarding. But she is certainly fun to play.

This was supposed to be a support Warwick game until my Riven told me on vent that she was a first time riven about 10 minutes in the game so I started taking CS and kills. LOL



Bottom lane Warwick is OP. I pretty much forced their Caitlyn to build QSS in the laning phase. LMAO

Lulu's extremely fun but unless you have 100+ game supporting with her like me you won't have much fun in lane. She is one of the best supports for turning a fight and has good damage in general.

However if you want to carry as support easily, Leona's good but you really need to know when to Xenith Blade without killing yourself, (it's not a poke!), Annie's good if you aa a lot and stun with good ADC synergy, and if you can land a good tibbers late game you'll be winning a hell of a lot, hook champs, thresh XPECIALly needs some knowledge and timing but it's not too hard, Blitz is hard to lose with but good enemies will rarely get caught, Morgana has an beautiful kit that counters a lot of the before-mentioned picks and does tons of damage, Nami, oh Nami, beautiful kit, does it all, but if you get caught you're as dead as a Sona; landing her stuff is tough, but if you do, it's done.

Those are some (too many) of the supports I'd recommend.
