I'll take a look through my recent dominion games to see how strong support play is.

http://lolmatches.com/match/na473761472 - lose to Pantheon + Leona combo, plus POOTERSS Zilean. 2 champs with low damage.

http://lolmatches.com/match/na473460130 - win, with Sacchin tanking on Nautilus.

http://lolmatches.com/match/na473058604 - loss, Alistar is so strong.

http://lolmatches.com/match/na473020191 - win, Shen tanking

http://lolmatches.com/match/na472580385 - win, Lulu auratank support.

And that's not counting the Sonas in half my games.

Are we still talking about Dominion?

The majority of pubs are picking their favorite champ, or whoever's free they want to try, not actively building for synergy. I know I've *****d lux / amumu / morgana comp and won matches hard with it but that was with vent in a premade.

Even troll picks, it's always better to tell people than to go in blindly hoping they'll work with you, unless you're actually trolling just to be a ****. I only do that when my team has already shown me incomprehensible ability to fail at everything at the same time and victory is impossible. Then it's time for hybrid pantheon! (which I've won matches on).

The other day I didn't notice my Orianna was AD until the end because surprisingly she didn't feed.
Er, Auratank IS pure support build... it's also the standard build on Lulu.

Numbers 3 and 4 are my "favorites".

Although, luckily, I don't see much of #4 anymore.

None of those are Lux / Nidallee?
Recaps also cant account for possibilities like that the enemy was retarded and never checked item builds before focusing tanky supports etc. Stat screens don't tell the whole story, I have plenty of pretty stat screens from facing baddies who had fine builds and just tanked with bad team play.

Your dominion experience is going to be drastically different from other peoples'. It seems a little presumptuous to be telling everyone on the forum you're right and they're wrong.

"Recaps also cant account for possibilities like that the enemy was retarded and never checked item builds before focusing tanky supports etc."

Did you ever stop to think that all the preconceptions you've gathered here could possibly be caused by teammates who are equally retarded?

Now I assume that you don't actually read the dominion forum and just use it to post complaints you encounter while playing, or you would know that there is a dominion tournament every weekend and there are multiple people posting on your thread who play and place in said tournament.

He's getting 'fixed' but you shouldn't have issue with thornmail.
If someone gets thornmail you build armor pen, Tmail reflects damage based on pre-mitigation damage, so if you would hit them for 500, but it's reduced to 300 or whatever by armor, the reflect is based on the 500.

If you build armor pen the pre-absorb doesn't go up but post-absorb does, more damage out, less damage in.

Are you suggesting I spend more time playing a game than posting in forums about said game? How dare you sir
