AP mids are now going to replace these nerfed pieces of junk. What support even rushes AP instead of sightstone or a support item? And they scale SOOOOOO BADLY.

This is a horrific patch for supports.

Yeah, lets make the SINGLE MOST UNAPPEALING ROLE even more unappealing? ARE YOU JOKING ME?

Can't take criticism?

This patch is smashing the single most avoided and hated role in LOL. Absolutely hindering it and making it even LESS appealing- and that was barely possible.

This is ridiculous!

They BARELY nerfed supports. Supports now get more gold. Supports now can buy more items. What's the problem? Riot has already stated that should they feel they overnerfed anyone they'll work on it next patch. That's the reason for the preseason. So they can make radical changes like this. Don't like it? Go play something else.

That is a terrible argument, and I don't even agree with the original poster.

If it's true, they'll just buff them back up a bit.

That or we'll realise that a support-income AP mid actaully doesn't kill as much as you think they do.

I see not-tangible-utility based support taking a hit. Especially sona.

Sorry they hammered support's ap ratios across the board. At the end of season 3 we already saw mages shoving supports out of their role. Now that supports have their ap ratios gutted we will see more of the same. Sure we get gold now, but are supports REALLY going to spend all the gold on ap just to get to the power levels they were before? No. Whats going to happen is we will see utility mages in the bot lane and traditional supports rarely used. Why would anyone pick a champ that now gets a speed buff or slow (that is being effected by the soft cap) without damage, when you can pick a utility mage that brings damage and comparable utility.

Did you even try it out on the PBE? Stop making assumptions until after the patch comes out.

THEN you can complain.
