I love playing support, it's one of the reasons I use Leona as my tank. A Stun Tank build with CD reduction can keep enemies from moving from the second they get hit to the second they die. If I remember when fully built I have her ult on something like a 30 second counter per use. It's pretty helpful since it'd scare them even though it'd barely hurt them.

And the moment you make a tiny mistake or something goes wrong we called feeders, and noobs, and god knows all sorts.

Today alone, I'm Sona, and a Jungle lee says to me "Sona feeder, 0/3.... Feeder" he forgets the 23 assists. Then I play Jana, there is an aggressive riven on the other team, who leaps past 4 people to kill me over and over, I end up 2/6/21 but I was the feeder the lost us the game.

In fairness, I say to you guys. Don't play support solo queue, set up a team, your appreciated that way,or at least set it up so you lane with someone you trust. We the unsung heros when we win, and the reason when we lose. Doubt that will ever chance, but still...

Karma, Sona, Janna, Soraka, Alistar, Taric.... We still love you!
your level 26...

After a video clip like this i like my support. sryy for the no action in the first few mins of the video starts at 2:35 on up. This just happened a few hours ago.

your frustration of your team's behavior and blame game is understandable. however, you need to realize, the primary objectives of the support role. in the laning phase, you need to keep the idiot ranged auto-attacker alive through heals, warding, and CVs. a secondary role would be tracking enemy jungler or helping out your jungler via CVs. after the 20 min mark (or whenever the laning phase ends), the important job of the support is vision of the neutral buffs, blue, red, drag, and baron. if you have no vision over baron, that failure is primarily on the support.

It wasn't your fault, warding is everyone's job.

I play the same way. And IMO yes. That spear is like a fear for players chasing your team lol.

"Do I chase and take a spear to the face, or let the low hp tank get away." (Nid heals for 500hp+) "Too late"

Yep. Everybody should be warding. The support can't do it all himself. He may be able to have less or cheaper gear, but he can't run around with no gear at all.
