: You're going to want a support than can win your lane, then roam mid and gank them. Supports like this are usually play makers though, which I feel like you should improve on if you want to climb. Maybe the challenge would be good for you :P {{champion:432}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:63}} For climbing, I really think you should stay away from supports that empower your team, and play the ones that carry by themselves. From what you said, I think you should try zrya, your weaknesses don't really matter when playing her. Saving a teammate/going in a a bad engage, you're going to be further back, so it doesnt really matter (maybe? :P ). These guys are usually the play makers though.
I can play any support, but I mostly play Taric. Out of that list you gave, Thresh is my next most played, but in low elo a lot of people dont know how to play with a Thresh support. And lastly, I dont know if I would consider Bard a carry support. All that aside, I would like to play a new role, but what you are telling me ia that I should stick with support and just change me champion of choice.

: What is your insight on "trolling" when the game is already CLEARLY lost?
You will never get better by giving up. One of the biggest differences between low rank and high rank players is how willing they are to just quit. You get better by analyzing why you are losing and adjust your play based on it. Granted, there are times when you are just outplayed or outmatched, nothing you can do about that other than do your best to learn from how your opponents are beating you.
: but everyone on PB&M acts like polices and don't want this system implemented, this forums section is made up of small childrenwho were harassed in game, fact.
I don't let people get to me in the game. I do everything I can to try to change peoples' attitudes and get them to turn around. If we are losing in a game, I play the cheerleader and try go get the team to rally. That being said, there are just some players that not only can't be helped, but actively work against you when you try to get your team to work together. These are the people I report. I don't report people for having a bad game, or getting mad because they are being camped, that's just human nature. Personally, I would just like some form of confirmation that these people are going to be punished, or at least on the way towards it. As it stands, nobody knows for sure if anything is happening. I think if you could look someone up, or even look yourself up and see how close you or someone else is to getting banned, it might deter people from ruining games for people.

: Too Much Forfeiting
It's not so much forfeiting when there is a reason, it's people who forfeit frequently that I am concerned about. Is it reaching to think that people who forfeit on a regular basis generally give up too soon? I think it's just an attitude that needs to be addressed because it's not in the spirit of the game to quit when you're down. I don't report people for trying to forfeit a game. What I do report, however, are people who attempt to forfeit over and over and beg the team to give up even though the team says no. It's a negative attitude, and I can't be the only one who finds it difficult to trust that that person is giving 100% to the game at that point.

: Everyone likes a good Support. No-one wants to be one.
I main support, and I actually enjoy it. Even when the team is terrible, I know when I make a good play, or save someone from certain death. Taric is really good at that in his current state. I just wish healing in this game wasn't so lacklustre, because I'd love to play a healer. Now, on the subject of rewards, sure it would be cool to be acknowledged a little more, but as someone pointed out, you don't want the queues to fill up with trophy hunters who are only doing it to collect a reward, or get a title or skin. People who play support go into it knowing it's a thankless job, and we do it anyways.

I do all of this. I pick my support based on my team and the opponent's team. If we lack engage, I pick Taric since his ult is pretty much GG for team fights, and he's tanky as hell when build right. If we have an engage and tank, I play Janna, since she is the peel master and has incredible utility. I also have Annie, Thresh, Blitz, and Zyra to pick from, but more often than not, Taric or Janna get the job done. Honestly, I wish I was recording some of the fights, because I've made some clutch plays that my team just couldn't or wouldn't take advantage of. Like I had a Mundo tell me he didn't know I was using my ult as Taric and ended up flashing through a wall to get away from a fight... it's a 5 second wind up and you see it coming. I think a large part of the problem is that people don't know other champs and don't know what they are capable of. As Taric, I can hold a team together with stuns, heals and shields. Janna has insane peel. I often ban Blitz because I don't think he takes much skill to win with. I think I may have to switch to top. If I'm not going to play support, might as well play tank. I guess I just don't like the ADC role.

Also, nobody seems to want to take responsibility for their actions. It's always the blame game, everyone blaming other people for stuff. I love the game, but damn is Bronze toxic.
: Yeah i can see that. You haven't gotten many good adcs either. Not sure what you can do.

: You might want to try tankier supports if your top lane isn't a tank. edit: looking at your games you seem to die quite frequently, any reasons for that? no offense intended.

Also, I can play Taric if we lack tank. I just really don't like his range, and people in Bronze don't seem to make use of my dazzle with the new mechanics. However, his ult is amazing for engaging.

Depends on which game. I think a lot of the time I end up dying is either my ADC going all in when I'm out of position and I have to rush to play catch up, or another big reason is because I'm usually the only one warding anywhere, so often times we don't see ganks coming due to lack of vision and nobody pinging MIAs. Trust me, you'll see that every game I always have a sightstone, and I use it as often as I can at key points in our jungle, or their jungle if we're ahead. Lastly, I'm not sure if it's the right play, but if we do get caught out of position, I will sacrifice myself to save my ADC if it comes down to either them or me, as I will likely have no kills and am worth less to the enemy team in terms of gold. All that being said, there have been times when I just make the wrong play, or am outright outplayed. I've engaged a few times with Flash > R to split up the enemy team and end up paying for it.
