Thanks for clearing it up for me. So I guess finding a parallel at bot to support each other comes with experience and also on how your support or ADC works. If it's Leona like OP is showing, it would've been better if they were aggressive together, especially if the ADC was Draven.

Precisely.

Whereas, a Kog'maw/Soraka lane will be much farther back.

A good support guide will be long. Too much to cover to go into detail about everything.

This is about positioning only. It's naturally going to be informative because it's specific.

Here's a test. I just spectated 3 more games long enough to get 3 images. Are these high elo games, or just games my bronze/silver friends were playing? Which is which?

nice work!

Edit: Top high elo

middle Lux out of position, blue ADC might be depending on purple cooldowns

bottom Blue side were probably not on the same page if Lucian had to dash back or forward.

How'd I do coach?

Yeah, once you see this stuff, you cannot unsee it.

And then bad positioning hurts your soul.

Question for the OP.

I have seen many Blitzcranks position similar to that Leona. However, because Blitzcrank's pull takes people out of position, he can get away with it, as the ADC can still reach.

Is that the correct way to position for Blitzcranks? Unfortunately, the opposing bot lane cannot punish him unless the minion wave happens to be walking past.
