    Having fun? I'm having a blast. I make wind noises for every Q I send out with Janna. I roar on the top of my lungs whn I press Taric's ultimate. I also yell "BOOOOM!" every time I stun someone with him. Sadly, there is nothing in Soraka or Lulu I can turn into an obscenely childish act. Nunu, maybe, but I don't like him. My teammates queue dodge when I select Zilean. It isn't because I'm bad with him!

    Good ward placement wins games. I like being that guy. I like being the guy that carries the AD's ass around.

    I'd say Taric is the best support. Has good amounts of heal, a stun, an armor buff/debuff with his awesome ulti. Jax running in from jungle with his stick spinning? DODGE THIS! Enemy has cloth armor as starter? GOOD ARMOR BRO! Getting harassed? HEALZ! Ad carry has lots of damage? NO! MOAR DAMAGE!

    Seriously though, Aegis on him is godly. I play with 0/9/21 on Taric with 4 bonus Armor and MR, gold mastery with 0 CDR and 8 gold yellows + 1 Armor Yellow, Armor Reds, MR Per Level Blues and Gold Quints.

    I go with Soul Shroud, Athene's, Mercury's, Aegis and Iron Solari. If we don't need heavy warding (As in jungle and solo top both have wriggles and can get wards) I also get a RoA. With the RoA, I get 3950 Health, 220ish Armor and 170 ish MR. Yeah, come and kill me. Try hard. With around 160 AP, he does good damage. Against carries that got no MR, I can do 250 with shatter, 500ish with stun and 500ish with ult. That's something none of them expects. With the str of spi mastery, I get around 80 HP regen too. (40 in early phases. Which is more than enough to withstand harass.)

    Enemy is aggressive and I get oom? Np, I'll auto attack minions with coordination from my AD. Idiots flashed under tower? Free kill for me if the carry is running away.

    Taric has everything. He's a conventional support but feels like an unconventional one. Get an Urgot next to you, and the enemy bot lane will familiarize themselves with both of your mothers.

    And ofcourse, I do yell alot while playing support. Makes it feel like I'm doing something big and heavy. Support is much more engaging than AD carry to be honest. No one wants to mess with you. On AD, you just harass and wait for your auto attacks to close the deal. (Graves is another screaming match, so he doesn't count.) I find playing support is more fun in teamfights too, compared to any type of carries. (Which for me, means that enemy bruisers always know what they are doing so I'm stuck with building Void/LW in 10th minute or try to keep my ass alive for the entire fight rather than bursting people down. I'm lucky that way.)

    Taric is my go-to support. I usually end up dying in team-fights mid-game, but I save everyone else and they murder the other team, so I'd like to think I do my job.

    He's truly outrageous.

    support leona is fun reach lvl6 and if you have an ashe you can chain stun the other carry. And your not completely useless mid/late game with those stuns.

    I love it... Actualy i allways end up playing supp nowadays. Since there tend to be a trend that the last pick in ranked "has" to be the support and they allways ask if they can play something else.

    Sure its not a carry role, but you will be able to help your team to victory and you provide information with vision at tactic points, deny vision, keep people alive. Setting up kills etc etc. I mean... Whats not to like about it?

    Helping your carry to get kills in early / mid game will 9 out of 10 times define the victory of the match. Best way to do that is picking a support with CC of some kind. Sustain support is effective too, but borring as hell and rarely gets your carry kills, unless you get help from jungler. (which rarely happens, since they tend to babysit mid or top). You are kinda expected to hold the fort at bottom and get fat on your own till TF's start to happen.

    When i pick support it entirely depends on the ad on our team, but soraka is allways a safe bet and turns out to be a monster lategame with infinite mana / healing for your team.

    Janna is fantastic support to, but a lot and lots of players tend to mess up her ulti and do more harm then good. xD But she is a great support in order to reset fights, kitting people, setting up slow but painful kills for your carry.

    Lattely i enjoy to play Alistar. Teamed up with a Vayne or another aggressive AD and you are guaranteed a kill with W-Q combo and after lvl 6 tower diving is very safe. The beauty of Vayne is that she snowballs so insanely hard. Get her FB and there will be A LOT of kills to follow ^^.
    Reach 40% CDR and you become CC king for your team. Alistar just requires a bit of strategic approach, since he is pretty squishy if you mess up your timing on your abilities.

    Strangely enough, i almost never see Sona being played at my Elo. The nerfs must have really hurted her i guess.

    The comps i tend to aim for when i see the AD:

    Soraka: Urgot, Varus, Kog, Eze, Corki (Mana heavy users)
    Alistar: Vayne, Corki, Trist, Graves (Gap closer ad's)
    Janna: Trist, Corki, Draven, Sivir
    Taric: Urgot, Sivir, Vayne, Graves
    Blitz: Graves... Strongest comp ive ever witnessed. But the Blitz has to land them hooks!
    Leona: Same as alistar

    I prefer jungling, but support is fun too. Can never go wrong with soraka / Alistair. I take support if people in ranked are crying not to support. Better to have them on something they hopefully are good on.

    Its fun to play support, if you do it right

    i enjoy playing Janna because i can give my AD carry kills and therfor i know that it was my play that got us that kill, of when i make a tornado that saves an ally, ITS AN AWESOME FEELING! but you should LP2 support befor playing ranked

    Support is underated.
    If your support is good, and works well with your AD carry at bot, it can easily win you the game.

    I prefer Jungling, but when I take a break from jungling in my 5s then I support as Janna, Sona or Taric.
    I'm good at all of them, and when I'm just staying back supporting my team, I can call the best shots for our next move in the game.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    You should try Gangplank support. Sounds crazy, but it'll give you something different to enjoy!

    I play support almost every game

    I prefer Lulu, Sona or Janna, I find Soraka a bit dull for some reason.

    Soraka is THE passive support. Sure, her silence can hurt and prolonged combat means you got 0 MR on you, but Q spam drains mana and silence is mostly used for giving mana. Her remaining two skills are both heals, while may be gamechanging, are not exactly innovative. (Taric's and Sona's heal themselves as well, for example.)

    While I do hate seeing a Soraka on enemy team, I hate it more to play as her.

    Support is fun, but it may be a bit boring if you constantly play that single role and nothing else, but yes, i enjoy playing support, and it's my "main role".
    I've bought all support champions except for karma because i find her...lame and underpowered. Favourite support would be Taric, due to reasons mentioned above, and my most hated support would be soraka..for the same reasons mentioned in the post above me. But i hate it even more when the enemy team has her....as the poster above me said :P

    Seen that happen from supported perspective, was quite fun. I don't mind passive play very much, because you still have actively contribute to the game to allow you play passively (though it could be definitely done better, and Soraka is really not much fun). But what I hate with passion is the retarded type of support represented by Blitzkrank, where you're sitting until enemy makes single mistake, and you can win from it. It's really no fun to play it, nor to play against it. Yet it appears quite often.

    I wish Soraka didn't exist. She exists purely to support passive play on both sides and it's boring as hell.

    Let's not forget how outrageously ugly she is too.

    (Yes that's important)
