: Best Support to ‘one-trick’?
I personally love Nami, she is good at a lot of things (poke/sustain with W, stat/speed boost with E, peel/engage with Q/R) and can do it from a safe distance. I think it might be a good idea to learn when to pick champs from your current pool into certain matchups. For example: I love Galio, but like you my win rate isn't the best. I learned recently that I was just playing him wrong. I would try to be aggro in lane and use all my kit for engage and if I messed up my engage (or my ADC wasn't paying attention and didn't follow) I would just die. So instead, I wait to pick him into matchups that i expect to be heavily engaged upon. The last game I played Galio was into a Nautilus support and I just saved my E/W for whenever my ADC got hooked by Nautilus and we destroyed lane. But if you are looking for supports to one trick that can solo carry games....I would say Thresh, Pyke, Morg, Lux or Brand would be the way to go (specially if you are in like Silver or below).

Have any tips or general Shen support advice you could pass along?
: How do I support in this blow up meta?
: Looking for a support
Play Rakan. He can be really aggro and you have your E to use as an escape tool after you go in to harass. He isn't that tanky, but can def be an aggressive play making support.
: LP change with positional rank change?
Yes, I was gaining about 25-28 per win and anywhere from 13-16 for a loss, and have a positive win rate for support (main position). Made it to Silver 2 and my LP gains immediately shifted to about 18 per win and 16 per loss (which was right before the switch back from positional ranking). Now post positional ranking revert, I gain 16-17 LP per win and lose 18 per loss. Mind you, I never went on a losing streak for more than 2 games and am currently 10-4 in my last 14 ranked games STILL only getting 16-17 LP per win and STILL losing 18 per loss. It is rather frustrating, specially as a support main, but what is there to do? Nothing really other than continuing to play and continuing to win it hopes to switch my LP gains/losses back to normal (or at least positive). But we all know what will happen if I continue to win like I am right now...

Her ult and poly provide good peel for your carry who is getting dove. She is great at defending ganks in bot lane and still provides a ton of poke in lane. Of course, if you play against a team that will focus you in team fights it kind of sucks, but other than that she works pretty well into someone like a {{champion:11}} or {{champion:254}} or others of the like. I love {{champion:117}}, she's an amazing champ. The problem I'm having with her right now is I haven't put in the right amount of time with her to lock in a specific build, I make my own builds for every champ, and for her I haven't closed in on a point of focus enough to be able to make a perfect one, so my builds are iffy for her. I should make one again but it takes a while to perfect it.
How do you feel {{champion:111}} is at the moment? I used to play him a lot back in previous seasons but haven't in a while. I miss him, but I am really feeling the enchanters lately (been spamming {{champion:267}} and {{champion:117}} ). I would love to pick him up again, and also {{champion:57}} . He is a lowkey great support, often over looked and under rated.
MirrorU (NA)
: Ok so with supports its a tricky deal. First let me start by saying there is no such thing as "the best" support. There is only the best support for the current situation. So here's how I gauge which supports I want to play in a certain game. First always look at the enemy lineup, they will be your best ruler on what you should play. So for example if they have lots of assassins like a {{champion:238}} mid and a {{champion:11}} jg automatically don't play anything squishy, in that instance you'd want to play your tanks. Now which tanks is determined by who you're playing against, like if you're playing against a {{champion:51}} /{{champion:222}} /{{champion:22}} adc than you want a {{champion:53}} , {{champion:111}} or {{champion:412}} . Something with good grab potential, because they're easy to kill if you can get your grab on them. However if you have something tougher like {{champion:67}} , {{champion:236}} , {{champion:18}} or {{champion:81}} you really wanna go with a {{champion:223}} , {{champion:201}} . Something defensive that can get in and out without dying because they're too fast to properly grab. Now onto the ranged supports, {{champion:43}} , {{champion:99}} , {{champion:267}} , {{champion:37}} , {{champion:40}} . Those are the types of supports you wanna play when the enemy team is tank/mage heavy. They won't be 1 shotting you all game so you can play them safely from the back if you're good with them. {{champion:43}} and {{champion:99}} are mostly for high yield damage all the way through, {{champion:267}} , {{champion:37}} and {{champion:40}} on the other hand are sustain, so if you're playing against an enemy that you can outsustain to win those are the 3 you want.
I like to play {{champion:117}} into comps that have lots of dive. Her ult and poly provide good peel for your carry who is getting dove. She is great at defending ganks in bot lane and still provides a ton of poke in lane. Of course, if you play against a team that will focus you in team fights it kind of sucks, but other than that she works pretty well into someone like a {{champion:11}} or {{champion:254}} or others of the like.
: It's also your vision score. As a support, ofcourse you don't get as much farm as the others, yet you can get an S
A lot of people don't understand this. Vision is super important and its something that is not hard to do (and will help you win).

: What is the point of a jungler? (Noob question)
As you continue to level both teams will start having a jungler and stop having a 2 man top lane, for the reasons some of the others that have replied to this have said. You have more map control, all the exp and gold from camps and control over drakes/baron/rift herald with smite.

They simply don't exist in the current lore. Same, however there are still a few champs that have VOs that speak to or reference the summoner in control. Its kind of funny.
: Good Junglers?
Just play Shyvana and farm/split push youruself to victory (of course playing around Drag [for passive] and Baron when necessary). She can easily solo rift herald and can counter jungle very well. Also, she can duel if you get caught by the enemy jungler.

I just won one that seemed hopeless, so maybe the turning point is near. Thanks for chiming in! Sure thing! One thing I was reminded of yesterday by a friend was to be introspective instead of blaming teammates (no matter how bad or braindead they are). I have been slacking lately on doing this. The example was last night I played with a Cait who just didn't really know what the heck she was doing. We were pushed into our tower the entire laning phase and she was trying to go aggro even tho she had no damage and we were losing basically every trade. Instead of sitting there and taking the whooping (and tilting bc of how poorly she was playing), I should have maybe roamed mid to help our Syndra exert more pressure and maybe trade bot for mid tower. Instead I just got mad, stayed bot and watched as we slowly lost. Was my team playing poorly? Yes. Was there more proactive things I could have been doing to help get us going? Of course! But instead of focusing on what I could do to help us play better/get some advantages, I was getting frustrated at how bad my Cait was playing.
: "Don't Blame your teammates if you're not climbing"
I've been experiencing the same thing actually. I climbed from B5 to S2 rather quickly switching from Jungle to Support. I got to my Silver 1 promo games, and lost the series, since then have just been having a tough time in ranked. I just feel like I've hit an unlucky streak, much like what you have talked about. I have played my fair share of poor games during this streak (I'm not blaming all of this on my team, I mess up too) but boy does it seem like I get matched up with some bad players. It kind of leaves me scratching my head sometimes. LOL. I would stick with your guns tho, support mains unite!

: I Really Need Help [Advice or even Duo]
While I don't have any advice for you and your duo guy (honestly it was a funny read, kind of felt like the plot of a LoL Soap Opera; player finds partern -> partner starts seeing other players -> partner no longer has time for player) but I do have some advice for climbing as a support. This season I placed Bronze 2 (finished Silver 5 last season). I know that is nothing exciting there, and I'm no pro player, but I have been able to climb consistently this season (I'm Silver 2 now). I got out of Bronze maining jungle and have been climbing in Silver as a support exclusively (decided to main support instead of jungle). The key is you have to play more carry oriented supports, or supports that can dictate when engages/team fights happen. Try out champs like Nautilus/Braum (team fighters/great engage/disengages) or carry oriented "supports" such as Annie or Brand. Being able to be a super tank (Nautilus) and control when your team fights and doesn't is great for helping your team not throw leads, or climb back from a deficit. Also playing easier mage style supports such as Annie and Brand gives you potential to turn team fights with your insane damage output while still building support items. Just my advice from a fellow support main who is climbing this season in ranked as a solo player. Also, don't forget that vision is op and will win/lose you games. Make sure you are constantly warding and clearing vision. For real, this is the most important thing you can do!
: So Riot, you love talking about counterplay. Then tell me this:
You can't be mad when a champion does what he is intended to do. The whole purpose of Yi is to kill the squishies. You just have to hope that your team can peel for you, and like others said, position yourself so you aren't as easily dove. Just throw some hard CC on him and hope someone exhausts him. Thornmail also works wonders...

If you're concerned about people on your team playing champs they suck on, op.gg them in champ select and be a prick and ban the champ if you don't want them to play it. That is kind of an extreme douchey thing to do, such as your OP, but hey....you do you man.
: Can there be a system to block people from picking certain champs? (minirant)

: Reminder that Promo Series is holding players rank back with randomness.
I could see the reasoning behind Promo Series for being promoted from Bronze -> Silver, or Silver -> Gold, etc. but just moving from Silver 5 to Silver 4 is kind of silly. You're still in Silver!
: Things I would love to see Riot change from Ranked
I see the point in having promos going from Bronze to Silver, Silver to Gold, etc. but going from Bronze 3 to Bronze 2 is pointless. Your other points are pretty valid as well. For number 2, just start us at the lowest rank in that division (ie: if you finished Silver 2, next season you would start at Silver 5). EDIT: Used "Placements" instead of "Promos"
