Why do so few people play support

  • Just curious honestly, I have been playing Taric and Thresh and I am loving them both so far, granted it's not as glamorous as kills I suppose but there is something special about messing with the other team and it's fun to be hard to kill.

    Are there other dedicated support players out there?

    Not surprisingly, a good amount of Rioters (myself included) "main" supports. I do jungle, but primarily I support.

    Pickpocket for mad duckets.

    Part of being a support is being the unsung hero. If you hear songs about us... (?)
  • Support is pretty much my goto role. I enjoy top as well but I will always pick support over top if given the choice.
