Apparently I have to define a farmless mage.

Farmless: Does not have farm.

Mage: A champion with significant base damages on spells that deal magic damage. A mage will always have some form of crowd control, no matter how bad that crowd control proves to be. A mage tends to have average to below-average movement speed.

Farmless Mage: A mage without farm.

You're wrong! I have a decent-good win rate with a bulkster! Bulksters won't be more popular than supports!

I feel as though this is just going to circle around to "You're an idiot if you think a bulkster can't support!" Taric is both a bulkster and a support, leaning more on the bulkster side. They aren't mutually exclusive.

He technically isn't, he just happens to have a non-personal AS/MS steroid.

Nunu isn't support? I thought he was originally labeled as support due to his non-personal AS/MS steroid as you stated, but also thanks to his two slows. (given one is far more reliable, but the other is AoE so still beneficial when applied well.

that, and he's just about as squishy as a normal support... just saying. i don't think he'd be considered mage at least.

Riot doesn't know how to make supports in the first place. They should go play DOTA2 for a bit then they will see what supports are supposed to be like in a MOBA game.

Yes we are, because it's easier to ignore things that clearly show we are wrong than it is to stop whining and having a persecution complex.
