What do you think would be the new "standard" for support champions?

Of course, a lot of it is still dependent on actually how big of the nerf is to the cooldown, duration, and range... I can still see Clairvoyance being regularly taken so the support champion won't blindly run into an ambush while warding, and a slightly longer cooldown will have to be compensated by better knowledge of jungling routes so as to not waste it.

But how about Flash? Would Heal scaling better in late game finally make it viable? Or that Surge be the spell that truly defines "aurabot" Sona?

Flash and CV are getting nerfed?

Do piggies really say whee whee whee, all the way home?

(But seriously.... NERFED AGAIN?! I want to commit SUICIDE.)

First topic in the Announcement Forum

Most notably, Flash and Clairvoyance – largely considered the two most powerful summoner spells – will each be coming down a notch going into Season Two. Flash will now have both reduced range and an increased cooldown to make summoners feel less obligated to select it. Clairvoyance will also be receiving an increased cooldown and reduced duration to make it require more tactical use and be less punishing to junglers.

Depends how much they get nerfed.Who knows,it could just be a 10 seconds longer CD and 50 less range;or it could be half the range and double the cooldown.

We have to wait and see.

Try playing a game vs 5 people with fortify and tell me if you still miss it.

I have a few times, won each one. I'm still going to miss it...
edit: I'm not gonna lie, it can be pretty tiresome though.

I fear Flash will be getting nerfed to the point where it just is outclassed, meaning NOONE will take it instead of EVERYONE taking it. Not to mention this is a big indirect change to champs with innate flashes who will now be saving them much more for escape than for repositioning for offense.
Now everyone will run exhaust, and cleanse/ghost/teleport will be the secondaries, and an ignite here or there.
