I feel like nobody wants to play a support anymore due to the new support items. The roles everybody tries to snatch up at the beginning of each game now are Top, Mid, ADC, and sometimes Jungler.

The new support items gives the support more utility, however it just confines the support to only doing support things such as Warding and keeping the team alive in team fights, and for this reason people no longer enjoy the support role as much because it seems like they are more of a tool of the team.

Perhaps Riot could introduce some items so the supports could carry a little more while still being a support at the same time. Does anybody else agree?

**Edit:

For example:
Even though the SightStone item seemed like a good idea to try and save money, I feel like its become a burden for supports because its now ANOTHER must have item that you MUST build or else you are not doing your role as a support. So on top of all the GP5 items you need to get out of the way, you now also need to buy SightStone, and by the time you've gotten money to get all that, its already mid game. So, what can the support do then with only GP5 items and sightstone other than warding?

The poll is meant to say: Do you also feel Supporting isn't* as fun to play anymore?

Support has ALWAYS been the least desirable role. FOREVER.

But the recent changes have taken a huge burden off their back.

They can actually get gear now...they don't spend all their money on wards now...

They actually have some stats now...

they aren't just ward dispensers now...

It's much more fun to play support in s3 than s2 and prior...

The poll doesn't make sense. It is unclear as to which option as which due to the thread title.

I find supporting to be very fun. My Lulu, Soraka, Blitz, and Ali all disagree with you.

I don't understand the poll either.

Support is still my favorite role to play. Landing stuns and last minute life saving heals give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

I don't mind playing support. One reason i dont like it is mainly people will find any possible reason to blame the support. Because they forget we have CD's too.

I main support. Then I learned to jungle to get timings down to be a better support.

I actually enjoy playing support. That being said it can be frustrating when your adc decides to over extend and then blame you when things go wrong.

I like support a lot. Sadly people all wanna go glass cannon these days.

So Nami, Soraka, Sona, among other squishier supports are out of the question.

But Ali is a lot of fun haha. Even if Blitz is better.
