Second most fun game I've ever had in 1500 games contained 3 Support archetypes.
Two of those three built Support.

Just saiyan.

I mained support. You know what I learned? I lose 3/4 if I do it. Why? Because if I play support I am 100% dependent on the rest of my team to carry. Which is the one thing you never ever ever want to be in solo queue, because you will ALWAYS lose those odds. Solo queue measures your ability to carry a game, so it actively punishes you for preferring the role lest able to carry. That's why we don't advertise. Because we are essentially surrendering to faith in the other random people in queue if we agree to do it.

As a support main, I'm really glad to see what seemingly is a resurgence of proud support players. Maybe one day we'll queue up and i'll insta-call support.

most support mains are high elo because its the easiest to carry solo queue with, even though sometimes it doesnt feel like it is.

And then some of you will threaten to feed if you don't get it.

THAT would be the day...

Because if a supportt feels satisfying to play to most people it is going to be considered OP and nerfed.

Not exactly.
Here's the caveat:
Supports work by making openings and making plays. However, if you can't do either of those things, you can at least make them wider with your kit. That pretty much means that you belong where you are at currently. HOWEVER, in the former explanation, that requires your TEAMMATES to exploit the weaknesses you have made in the enemy's team. They can choose not to do that and make your play meaningless.

More knowledgeable players will see these plays and act on them more frequently as elo increases.



In other words, climbing the elo ladder is exponential for supports; you chance of victory increases with every victory until you hit your true elo and stay there because you're not making the plays nearly as much anymore.
