So since it is alistar free week, and i've played a small bit of alistar in the past and enjoyed him, i was gonna start playing him more. I have a friend who i duo queue with who i would like to try support ali to his ranged DPS. But then there came the nerfs to his heal, and i was just wondering if any dedicated Ali players had a good take on this. Can he still be played support? Is AP ali a better route? or is he dead in the water, so to speak?

well when it comes to protecting an ally only Janna comes close to him
he can heal a bit as well, and if he is not needed he can go roam

Those were my thoughts. My friend has been working on his corki, so he can 1v2 once he gets a little better (depending on team comp of course) so I was thinking ali would be good cause i could roam a little bit. I just wasnt sure if running support/roam ali was even worth it with the nerf to the heal, or if its just better to go AP.

Alister
after that europian player played AP alister, hes so popular as AP now which I don't like
alister is suposed to be played as support I feel. Suport in the fact that he positions enemies,
and other than roam, you can take down the ocasional tower because your high durability with your ult.

Very viable. Xpecial support your team solo mid in dreamhack with Alistar.

Better alistar: Tank/support/roamer.

One of the reasons i wanted to try him support was because i saw it in dreamhack and on some high level streams, but i was specifically wondering if his heal nerf (ap ratio lowered to .2 from .4 iirc) was a significant hit to his support abilities or not.
