The perfect support would try to last hit the same creep a milisecond after the adc if he wouldn't get it so that no creeps would get lost. But that's impossible.

Farming CS is easier than killing the enemies since they usually don't walk mindlessly into you.

The meta is revolved largely around supports who have abilities which are good without needing any items, most of which have no scaling.
Good examples include CC (support taric, Alistar), resistance boosts (Soraka), and various other similar moves (Infuse, rocket grab).


Also, the reason melee AD carries are often not taken bot is their utter defenselessness in teamfights: late game, they must be in the middle of combat, where it is easy to take advantage of their pitiful defense. If they build tanky, they are unable to do the damage to carry their team. If not, they are unable to survive in close quarters. I will agree that Kha'Zix is a bit of an exception, but this is mainly due to him being able to quickly jump in, assassinate a key target, and jump out when focused. Most assassins can do this, and in my opinion, assassins are fine replacements for AD carries.

Hey, OP.

You're completely wrong on both counts.

You have a positive record with ONE champion. (Jax @ 1-0)

How do you feel like you are in a position to give anyone advice?

That doesn't change the fact that you're bad.

And yes, bot is for RANGED ADC, not melee. Because a ranged ADC vs. a melee one will just use infinite poke until they just completely zone the melee ADC out from being able to farm. Taking a Tryndamere or Master Yi bot is actually even worse than using Teemo as your ADC. Sure, they can work just like kill lanes can work, but you have to be quite a bit better than your opponents in order to actually function or you'll at best get even in farm but be behind because they have someone who can tear through your entire team without jumping into it.
Just flat out wrong. You cannot make general assumptions like this. As always game situations are a fluid and changing dynamic, just as the opponents you will be facing. There are some advantages to playing a melee champ bottom against certain other pairings. It depends on situations and circumstances. To say that they should never be played there is pure ignorance. To say that more often than not they should be played somewhere else is a proper statement that takes into account the multiple factors.
