Hi! I used to play this game obsessively, and stopped about right before Syndra was released. I've been thinking about starting to play again and was wondering how things have changed in the game since I've been gone. I see there's a few new champions, but has anything about the mechanics or the meta changed? Is it still top (tanky bruiser), mid (ap carry), and duo-bot (ad carry & support)? I mostly played support bot. Is that still played the same with warding and whatnot?

Things are similar.

More assassins nowadays, and AD assassin mid is reasonably common.
Supports have Sightstone and better itemization, and you'll notice more gold income in general.
(Minor - Locket of the Iron Solari is very good).
A bunch of itemization changes, read up on them in a custom game and look at the new items. Most notably, no more HoG.
