It's just straight up boring.

Herp derp sit in the bush, herp derp place a ward, herp derp heal the ad carry.

That's not why I play video games.

What's that? My team is feeding? gg, because I can't do anything because I'm a support.

That does not give them, in no way, the right to spread rumors saying that Supporting is boring and should be changed


Sure it does.

Pretty sure opinions are allowed, even if its one you don't agree with.

I think support is fun but I don't like how almost everything and everyone can find a way to blame it on the support.

They have the right to have an opinion, thats for sure, but to ask Riot to change everything so THEY are pleased with the support role, thats just plain selffishness

Support can be fun. There are lots of parts about it that are fun. Most people agree about those parts.

But there are also parts that suck. Like your carry not following up on your plays, or dying to a gank even when you're warded, or your team yelling at you to buy more wards all the time, or how you always build the same items, or how you never have gold to buy cool things, or how you aren't allowed to finish your build because you need a space for wards, or how you're actually yelled at if you get kills.

But you're asking Riot NOT to change it because YOU LIKE the way that it is already.

Hmm. Hmmmmmmm.

Clarity: By saying "Stop asking Riot to change X" you are effectively saying 'riot DO NOT change X". Still asking them to do something based on your own preference.

Because you can't carry a game. A bad support is better than a bad ADC. At a basic level, support involves standing around and doing nothing and healing the carry.
