So we have the Jungler, AD Carry, AP Carry and Bruiser...

I'd like to change the classification of the last group from 'suuport' to 'team carry' because without us your ass is grass.

I play primarily adc and there are several games where I feel I lose lane because the support was "bad". But honestly, in ALL of the games I could have played better. Regardless of the position, your team is only as strong as your weakest link, so yes having a bad "support" can make the game go poorly... but so can any other role. I try to thank my supports as much as possible because supports do change the game and most people do not want to play them.

To the OP, thanks for playing support. Someone has to do it and at least you were a big enough person to.

also not sure if anybody else feels this way. BUt when playing support does anybody else get annoyed when being constantly thanked after everything you do?

Some games when playing as soraka everytime I give someone mana (and I mean everytime) some people keep saying "thanks"

I get it guy, no need to do it every time.

I don't get annoyed, out of laning phase I will try to be everywhere so I often get a little disappointed when I'm too busy to acknowledge their thanks.

When playing support it's sometimes overlooked the impact you've made, so I enjoy the games when others can see that impact.

I see people here circlejerking about how supports "carry" the game.

No, the supports don't carry the game. The AP carry and AD carry carry the game. That's why they're called the carries. The supports help a great deal, yes - they ward, they keep the AD carry alive in the early game until he's strong enough to do it himself, they give him space to farm, they get him kills. But that doesn't mean they carry.

You can get an AD carry farmed and fed, but if they don't do anything with it, the support can't do anything. Yes, a support is a very very useful part of the team, and the AD carry isn't the entire team. But the AD carry is (well, theoretically anyway), in the end, the one who does the most damage late game, and the one who brings the rest of the team to victory after they struggle through the part of the game where the AD is generally useless.

It's ALWAYS ALWAYS the other person's fault. not yours
because you're a 2k material but SCRUBZZZ and HATERZZ are holding you back
plus there's a "magical alien Related ,X-files matchmaking conspiracy" designed to keep you at low elos.
it's never ever your own fault , YOU ROCK , PPL SUCK.
you just went into a game with a 4 man premade , and lost ? npnpnp blame the 5th guy.

Funny Thread .Upvote

This.

All supports needs to go on strike someday. They'll be lost without you.
