If anyone played any supports in Dominion, I would like to hear your opinion on how are they doing there.

I for example have played Karma, and she is what she should be in SR. Full AP and your teammates can towerdive anytime. Devastating shield, and OP speed buff. She is great. How are other supports?

I've played Sona a bit so far. From the looks of it, supports are pretty good if you stick with your team, but if they leave you on your own you're in trouble. The heals are still decent enough for some sustain if you're playing a slow defensive game, but nobody seems to be playing that at the moment. They all want to run in and fight every single minute.

It's a bit of a problem at the moment because everyone's still running off rambo, but once people start cooperating a bit more, I think supports will be solid picks.

And how about:

Taric,
Janna,
Soraka,
Zilean?

I've seen Zilean doing ****loads of AoE damage with his bombs, a great offensive champion, but not good on defence. When you have Zilean you can just towerdive without any worries.

As for the others, I haven't seen any of them, but I think Taric would be great on defence. Especially that he is a great anti AD champion.

Don't build them as a 'support' unless you plan to follow a teammate around the entire match. (in which case you're better off playing someone with a lot of crowd control effects such as alistar / leona / blitzcrank).
Heals are lackluster without AP behind them. You are squishy without appropriate items.

From what I've seen, Karma can reach a lot of her potential in Dominion as she isn't limited by farm (this applies to many champions that would require extensive amount of gold on summoner's rift but are generally denied it. Kayle, Karma, Evelynn, Poppy, etc.)

I have played Janna to great effect. No kills for sure but I am able to defend a point for quite some time from invaders. Also if I invade with my team I can cc the team well. You just have to not be stupid and run up to Shyhalu alone when he isn't playing support. You have a different role.

All supports are beast. They just need different builds.

Soraka + Taric building tank? You aren't capping their CP.

Janna + Karma with AP? Nukes everywhere.

Zil CDR + Cap stacking? Can't catch the king.

Kayle hasn't been a support since her re-work.
