    I'm really starting to consider building some supports as offensive for fun... Just gotta figure out which ones to do so on.



    I'm not sure, but I think this was a bit of a one-sided match. Wish I could say I could do this well every game with carries :/
    (sorry about being hyper, but I'm on energy drinks and I have an exam in about six hours, and I'm studying while playing to keep this stuff in my head, and that game was just... Kinda amusing. That and the time of the game.)

    Is it a bad thing if I'm slightly bored out of my wits half the time even in real life?

    Works best on Janna as far as "classic" supports work tbh. It empowers her tornado so you can clear waves, you probably get more CDR for more shields/ult, your shield gains A LOT of strenght, and your ult will actually heal for massive amounts too. Morrelonomicon should almost be core tbh.
    Also works, obviously, on Nidalee, Lux, Zyra and Elise. Imo Sona is too squishy to build AP, Lulu doesn't scale that well (ult), Soraka has too long cd/too short range, Alistar needs to go tank, Leona needs to tank, Thresh could work I guess. Probably forgetting some.

    @Zed nerfs, there we go, guess I'm not buying him. Elise still OP!
    ((I love both of their playstyles, I'm not buying/playing them because they are OP. But I am on very limited IP so I do want to pick something that works well)).

    Heh, yeah. 10 of the kills in that game were before my first death, where I had just had the base chalice and some boots, and I kinda just started getting kills. Most of those champs I don't even have though, mainly because I spent some IP getting some of the 450 point champs, then I got Sona for use and Lux for fun (Final Spark is dear to my heart for two reasons), and since then... Yeah.
    Ideally, I'll get more used to other roles, and be able to work with things like initiations with the tanky-types soon, because I have the bad issue of "oh no I'm taking damage run away" and that's not very... useful.
    Ah well, study study study play a game study study study.

    I don't get people in this game. Playing aram as Xin, enemy team has afk. enemy olaf decides to have a bit of fun and was like "1v1 anyone?" So I'm like sure why not? Head into a bush, start duking it out. His team comes and kills me. We're both like wtf?!?! y u do dis? Fast foward to the game is almost ending, olaf's like "ok this time we really 1v1" again, start duking it out, and the enemy anivia comes and ruins it! Both times I get called gay by the kassadin. Like...I don't even. My mind is just boggled. Whatever though, despite their afk it was a fairly fun game for me atleast.

    Building AP on almost every support in ARAM is always good, except Soraka because her abilities don't up that much with AP, I mean, they do but for her to do damage as AP is quite risky because she needs to get close, and some people like to get even closer because of her Q so they can do aoe damage to everyone, then people wonder why they died...

    As soraka, I usually go full support or tanky support or tanky ap. I always get Bulwark on her, then I could go Iceborn Glauntet, like you did on Sonna(though I don't get that on her because she spams spells a lot and Lich Bane does give her a lot of damage), or Frozen Heart since both give me CDR, maybe both even if the other team is heavy ad.

    That's what I build on her most of the time but I haven't managed to make games last that long when I play her so I can see what else I'd buy so that's it at the moment... but getting Abyssal Scepter would probably be a good idea if the other team is AP or a Banshee's/Twin Shadows(pretty good item because of the gp5 item). If your team has a lot of APs you could also get wota, helps a lot.

    As for damage items, I think I'd only get one full damage item and it'd be Rabadon's I guess. Getting Zhonya's probably good too. The thing with Soraka is that you don't need to go full AP to do things because she already does a lot as not AP, and being tanky most of the times is good on her, though if your team is full tanks, I guess going AP instead is better but I don't know to be honest, haven't gotten one so I can't really experiment...

    But that's it, on other supports I just go full AP or tanky AP. No idea Nami but I think with her it could go either way, like Soraka.

    I dislike that item a lot. If it's because of the mana regen you're getting that, go Athene's instead, it's a lot better in mana regen, gives cdr too and MR. A lot better than Morrelo.

    Wrong. Sonna is quite powerful as AP and her ulti does scale quite well with AP considering her other abilities. Her poke as AP is fucking amazing, especially if you have a Lich Bane, she doesn't always need to auto attack to do damage because you can just get a bit close Q and get out fast without losing any HP.

    AP Sonna is quite powerful.

    Also, as for supports that are tanky by nature, like Leona, Alistar, going tanky or AP tanky with them is always your best option and don't go full AP, unless you're Alistar because going full AP on him actually works pretty damn well. Thresh AD works well too.

    Lol. Asking 1v1 in aram is always a bad idea.

    I don't get people in this game either. What made you think anyone has any obligation to respect your 1v1 challenge? There is no reason for 8 other people to go along with what you two thought up.

    I guess it's just normal to hate fun.

    To be fair, you have no idea if that person mutes people or doesn't read their chat or doesn't speak english etc. but yeah, they were probably just party poopers and were already in a bad mood from someone on their team being AFK anyway.

    I love 1v1s though, you should have added him to friends and invited him to a custom duel for the fun times. Some of my favourite league moments are getting my ass kicked in 1v1s

    It's not that, it's more of "why would everyone adapt so you can have your fun instead of having fun themselves in a way they enjoy".

    You're late, that's several hours old

    Much as I can see that pissing off people, I have to agree with them here.

    I do hope they keep his voice work to be honest. I never play him so wouldn't miss him that much, but it is funny and they should keep some lightheartedness in the games. Everything is so serious nowadays.

    Considering what happened to Trundle and Karma, expect the worse to come from his rework too. I also can see Heimerdinger getting a voice and a model change as well.

    /shrug, not everyone hates the reworks so much. I like both of them. Also Sejuani though I don't think she was changed that much.

    Sejuani and Annie are pretty much my standard for reworks. They look much better and Sej is far less clunky now.
