So I started off a match with playing Janna as support, but the Olaf I was with was one of those players that would not venture two steps from the turret. Naturally we ended up losing the lane, blah blah blah. So I got frustrated with Olaf and decided to ditch him and support Jax on the top, blah blah. At one point, we were pushing down the enemy's inhibitor (three of us: two attackers and myself) when the entire enemy team shows up. I knew we were going to lose the fight, so I pop my ult to push them back and run. Only my two teammates thought I was initiating (on a push?) and stayed and got wrecked. I got called out for being a terrible support numerous times because my team didn't understand that it's generally a bad idea to dive three enemies looking for one kill.

So it got to the point where I was completely fed up with my team and decided that I wasn't going to play support for them anymore. So I sold all my support items and bought the build I would use for Vayne. My team was pretty much all about reporting me until I actually started to take down every turret on the top and bottom lanes including both inhibitors.

Still I got complete criticism and threats of getting reported (so what? It's not against the rules there). I ended up with a decent spread, though I was still mostly going for only assists because Janna really isn't cut out for killing, just helping.

But I'm still curious, is an AD Janna viable? I had my support runes and masteries up, so I'm wondering what would happen if I went AD with her. I did pretty well with everything.

Edit: Also, let it be known that I only made Janna for AD out of frustration and sort of as a middle finger to my team... I kind of feel bad, but it paid off.

Was trolling with AD Janna, got double kill against a tower diving Mao Kai and Vlad. Along with a first blood when Lee Sin tried to gank Talon and I. We stayed and fought until maokai died and Lee ran away

No, AD janna runs out of mana too fast. You could AD any support and pretend its viable i guess...but not if you actually want to win. AP janna however...now that's fun.
