Can someone give me an in-depth summary of the role of a support? I really want to get into supports but a lot of times I play supports I find myself having to switch roles and carry the game. (AP Soraka/Janna/Karma) The only champion I can really maintain a support role in is Sona because she's hard to carry with anyway. Your thoughts and opinions on the support role would be greatly appreciated to this beginner. :)

Don't play support if you aren't queueing with friends. Playing support with randys is one of the worst things you can do. If you must though, play a heavy CC support ( Alistar, Nautilus). These make it easy to give your randys free kills and make it almost impossible for them to do bad.

Support is one of the hardest role ingame.
People think that support is easy "Just stand afk in the bush, heal me, and keep warding GG"

NOPE!

A supporter's #1 main point is to support the ad carry (and the whole team) by
1. warding/clearing wards
2. offer kills to teammates (CC'ing enemies Alistar, Sona, Taric, Leona, Blitzcrank ... etc.. the more CC the better support (lol)
3. save teammates! with whatever champ, don't let your mates die. it's better if YOU die instead of a teammate, so try to save and it's ok if you die and your mate is saved. Your death is not in vain
4. Offering CS to your mates. Don't take any CS EXCEPT: no mate is around and CS would be wasted

I personally love Alistar, Taric and Leona as support.
I don't like Soraka because laning with her is too passive.

That was one of my questions actually Asylum. I find myself always having to pull a carry out of danger and sacrificing myself. When that happens I usually let them know I did it on purpose by saying "MAH SACRIFACE" in chat lol. Sounds like I'm doing decent with my support skills. I love playing the support, it's such a great role in my opinion. I love it.

I understand what you mean AFK, sometimes my support handiwork is useless when I solo queue, so I generally go based on what my team decides to be. If I see someone going melee DPS then I grab Alistar and CC all game, but I prefer support champs like Sona/Soraka even more.

^^ I think it's in reference to all of the my little pony/brony **** people are obsessed with, but I know not for sure. I can't see youtube until I get home. The office blocks it. Grr. I'll check it out though for sure :)

It was either the most idiotic thing I ever read or the most ingenious troll ever, so I felt the need to share it with the world.
