Dedicated to Mithy, and players alike.

How am I to describe the benevolent efforts of a support player?

A force that is often shown through strength, healing and warding. You are vigor and ruthlessness that fights every day on the rift to provide your team with crowd control and kills. Your lane partner knows that they aren’t alone, you protect the lost, the squishy, the broken and you are an example of selfless might. You know that it’s not all about getting the kills, it’s about winning the fight.

Thank you supports, for using the little money you have on buying shiny wards, granting your team vision to prevent unnecessary deaths.

” Support: Hey guys, it’s really great that you’re working on your build, but pink wards are cheap and we can have 5 on the map. Can you please buy some?
Top: Shut up
Support: -_-  “

A word of gratitude goes out to you for  sacrificing your own speed, because boots are expensive and you don’t have coins until later because, most of the time, you move out of the way to give your ADC the gold. The lack of levels, the lack of items and the sacrifices don’t go unnoticed. You are selfless, and maybe it’s because the league world has always expected you to be.

I main support and I instantly cringe when I set up a kill beautifully and the ADC just sits there. Interestingly enough, the same ADC will dive under turret at level 3, die and proceed to flame me for not backing him up. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

 Zven, of course knows better but for the non-challenger players, this happens way more than it should.

Janna will take a rain-check on an enemy team fight engage on account of bad weather. Bard says “NOPE!” when the enemy jungler attempts to gank and Poppy will blow you out of her teams vicinity if you think you can pull a fast one. The least we can do for our supports is say thank you.

Of course, the strongest of structures within history have crumbled under certain situations, but you, my supports, have remained strong. Ganks happen and often someone has to die. In a perfect world, it’s a failed attempt but if somebody has to go, supports would much rather it be them than their carry. They only aim for assists in the game, their personal survivability is lowest priority in team battles.

Everyone should learn to be more like you because being a support does have its perks;

  1. Shorter wait times in queue
  2. You don’t have to focus on last hitting
  3. If you carry early, you get carried later. It’s return on investment at its finest
  4. You make a big difference in team fights
  5. And best of all, fan girls. Fan girls love a selfless, caring support.

    “If you carry early, you get carried late”.. Just today i got my adc 7 kills in the early game, prevented 3 enemy ganks and we went into midgame 7-0, taken 2 turrets bot and 2 drakes, still lost the game 25-30 min ingame.. The life of a support trying to climb 🙁

  • Francisco Tijerina

    David Pírez, un bonito reconocimiento a nosotros 🙂

  • AzraelHell

    Thanks Origen, from the bottom of my heart <3 U’r amazing guys.

  • milkyhorrors

    Origengg I almost cried ? but I think in high elo people should understand everything without reminding, like pink wards. Anyway ty ❤️

  • Jana Meißner

    “We don’t have enough wards in the map…you are such a bad support…”
    Yeah team, tell me more…
    It is hard to play sup, but it’s the best position to see how teamplay works…and it is the best feeling when your ADC thanks you for a perfect game – with kind of tears in his eyes ♡♡♡

  • Giorgos Gountroumas

  • Maskott

    true story 🙁 climb to gold is easy but gold is hell for support, everyone thinks he is super cool and know what he is doing in fact they dont … carry game as support is super hard 😀 i share ur feels bro

  • RegisDecremps
  • Tim Stofferr

    As a main support,i can say, 60% of the adc’s SUCK

  • Max Boyne

    Steffen we

  • RegisDecremps

    I main support and i disagree. I wont say i never Rage against my adc… But… no 60% is by far too much. Example, i hate adc that play always far much safe… BECAUSE i’m an harassing hard support. I like the thrill of the kill and i like my adc to follow me… But thoose kind of adc are not BAD… they are good their way… but dont work well with ME.
    I also see some dumb risk adc… And their moves are sometimes somehow genious… but they take useless risk and my relfex to try to save my adc lead to bad move from ME.
    I would say that less than 20% adc are really bad. Not more… The truth is that my own gameplay is part of misunderstanding with my adc mind.
