Its just as close to the dragon and allows the supporter to ward both top and bottom and dragon without being heavily at risk of gank. Whats the deal with bot

No idea really. Mid tower is also one of the most important towers to take down.

Because AP carries usually have better escape abilities and the support does not need solo farm at all, giving a support farm and not the AP carry or AD ranged is a huge mistake. The support is meant to spend what little money they get from assists and gold per 10 second items on warding and buff items etc.

Because "pros" don't play like that. And everyone has to follow the so called "pros"

Okay so basically there is absolutely no reason to, and its just a bad meta like how tree line for some reason always has 2 people going bot

It would be harder or even not worth it for the AP carry on blue side to get the blue buff from their jungler if they were bot.

I don't get what this has to do with the topic... are you saying mid has more minions? Even if that was true (it's not) it would just mean more farm for the carry if the support knows what he is doing.

The only reason I guess bottom makes more sense is because the support can hide in the bushes more easily...

That and the enemy blue buff is a little closer.. but that really shouldn't be a factor. If you're going for enemy blue, you're taking a risk.. wouldn't matter if it was from mid or bot.

I may try going two mid... maybe a carry with a lot of speed and utility like Janna or something that can drop down to bot or go up to top when needed. and can help the jungler out more.

2 bot on TT is just bad. Its 1 per lane and a jungler.

I see a lot of ad carries mid and most supports are usually better with a partner
