And then proceeds to go 14-14 against a Swain mid.
Diamond V and Diamond I are just the lowest care levels in the world, it's so terrible :/
I'm really not looking forward to my attempted Silver V to Gold climb... I'm 1-2 in Silver so far AND THEY KEEP MAKING ME SUPPORT. I am beginning to loathe Janna and no one wants me to Nidalee or Soraka.
I suppose I deserve it after I got carried to 3-0 in my promo series.
Can imagine them not wanting Soraka or Nidalee. Soraka is completely useless in lane unless you can get your ADC to run an Urgot. Even then it's questionable. Most Nidalee supports are utter shit.
Supporting is an excellent role to carry from, if you know what you're doing (hint: I don't). You're generally last pick, so you can counterpick the entire enemy team and botlane. Enemy grabs Twitch / Blitz? Pick Leona, gg, free initiation. Enemy grabs Vayne? Pick Lulu, hit her with Pix so she stays visible during Ult and change her into a cupcake when she tries anything. Enemy team wants to dive? Pick Zyra, put an Ult between the first one to dive and the rest of the team. Gg, solo nab gets murdered.
Janna on the other hand is fantastic, so it's a shame you don't like her. When I play ADC I love good Janna players because they can win games.
You definitely need to fix your support pool though. Sona, Lulu, Thresh (when not banned), anyone who isn't Soraka.
I do, however, hate Sona with a passion.
How viable is Zilean support anyway? He felt really strong when I did a premade with some friends in normals.

Supports are great. It especially gets better for people who often support from silver 1 and upwards because other people know what to do better. Though they still suck at team fights most of the time, it's usually better in lane phase and a support can break or make a game, the former is kind of rare unless you're shit though.
That said, a Yorick / Zilean botlane is hilarious.
With Leona, if you go in, you go all in. If your ADC don't follow, you're pretty much dead. I can't even count the amount of times I've gone in and my ADC just derps and don't follow.
With Annie, if you go in, you stun them all up and can just run away, should your ADC not follow. Not to mention, you can actually kill people by yourself, if you've had a decent game.
Also, 3-5 man stun is much easier to land as Annie, compared to Leona.
