Threats & Synergies
Soraka used to be a very dangerous support! It was because she was broken and with a button she was a teamfight Queen.Right now she is not as good as she used to be,however that doesn't mean you can't be as good anymore.You should follow my guide in order to succeed!The path of the angel is the right way~ If you ever come across an enemy Soraka it doesn't take much to beat her.Her healing is not that strong early and she is really squishy.If you try to focus or cc her she is as good as dead since she is very bad at escaping.Try to avert an assassin or a mage on her,that way she can't focus on protecting the team.A Soraka that is busy keeping herself alive is a dead Soraka.
It doesn't matter if this guy comes against you,it is very dangerous if he catches you but this guy is an opportunity or mistake exploiter.Stand behind your minions or your ADC that way you won't lose to him.If he catches you flash away immidiately or try to silence him first thing.It's very to die from him if he catches you but if you get him waste his Q you are a lane bully.
Brand is burning our health away,that is not the best thing for us.In order to heal our allies we must stand close to them and close is what Brand needs.His ult,W,passive are all so very dangerous for Soraka.If he burns our wings off we are not an angel anymore.That way you should get him waste his W and try to Q him as much as possible.A scared Brand can't do much in lane since he needs to be aggressive.Get him to play more defensively.Our E is a major helper here since not only you can ruin his combo but you can poke from afar.
Bard for me is quite strong now however he is no threat for us...His burst is the only good thing about him and our E can ruin him completely.Our heals are sufficient,his aren't.A Bard must get close to us in order to poke or be useful.You got the advantage by poking him with Q and E...your ADC can get easy kills with your Q's slow.
A tanky champion and that's all there is,I noticed Braum can't take us down unless he lands ULT on us.We are Soraka and we don't need to stand close to him.Ward the bushes and he is useless since he will be standing in there in order to Q us or our ADC.Vision is the key to beat this guy.His teamfight game is strong but we can turn the teamfight in our favour with our healing.Be cautious of his ULT and focus.
Alistar is an undying cow which we cannot milk :( Just kidding.He is very dangerous since he can exploit the fact that Soraka needs to get close to someone in order to heal but we can outsmart him.Our E is a valueable ally that we should only use in order to disengage him.Our E is the literal root of roots on him.Our silence will not let him complete his E with our root and that's how you fight an Alistar.Our Q is a slow which can be used against him as well,however if you think he has W and Q don't let both you and your ADC die.Let him combo and afterwards heal.
Who plays Annie support anymore?Anyway...Annie's only capable flashing and ulting us which is the only good thing about her.We can't outrange her but we can outheal her.Just keep vision in the bushes and be ready to silence her.
Zilean is strong however our silence can destroy his plans.It's way easier to fight against him rather than him fighting against us.His R is not enough to out-HP our allies and his stunbombs are quite useless if we stand away.We can't outrange him but we certainly can steal his HP away if he tries to combo us.An Equinox will suffice for him to die,he is squishy and old.
Janna was the utility Queen.She has shield,speed,heal,Knock-up.She has it all.However in the terms of laning Soraka wins.Perhaps it's difficult to outmatch her on a teamfight but if we succeed to interrupt her ULT with our E we basically have won game.It's not hard to play against Janna since most of Janna players will stay behind ADC and be passive.If a Janna doesn't hold aggression and she is on you she will mostly W you.That's why you have to Q and E her in order to punish her.Her W needs to be close to the enemy in order to be used so your range is the winning factor here.
Karma is not that great now really,Her Q is quite dangerous but in the terms of shielding,healing etc...she lacks from other supports.We can't only outheal her but we are way more useful in teamfights.Karma is a powersupport making her to use an all-in combo.If she uses her Mantra Q she is quite done but we got the upper hand after that,our redemption can negate her Mandra Q damage and we still have HP and Ult and heals so we are good.
Lulu is sooo strong.Her CC,Heals and shields are quite dangerous.At this point only skill will prevail.Ward enemy jungle and try to fight her before 6 because her ult doesn't only make her ADC have more HP-it heals it and also knocks close enemies.A lulu can outburst us and she can W us making us unable to use our only good factor against her which is healing.Silence won't really work on her since she is quite fast and she can move out of it but if the timing is correct you can prevent her from doing important things...for e.g in a teamfight ULT -etc.
Lux is an AP support with a root and damages.She is strong but her main poking spell is E.If we can dodge it we pretty much won game because we can poke her back and we can outheal her burst in early stages.Late game she is strong but again we can save our Allies since our ULT got stronger.
Morgana doesn't only negate our silence and root but she can negate the slow,which lets her come close-by and ult us.She is very strong and dangerous.Her constant damage and poking will make us weaker because we will have to heal more often.If we ward the bushes it will be way useful and also if we can poke her once in a while she will have to fall back.In a teamfight avoid her at all costs and keep your redemption unless she Q's you or the ADC.Your heals can save everyone else but her ULT is very dangerous to the point when everyone stops anyone can focus you.
Leona can't outmatch us our silence and our heals can beat her.She is a tank making her way easy for her to poke us down and kill us since she can focus us but vision and slows can prevent that.Her ult is not that strong and mostly since she fights from a close range she will dive for a kill at lvl 2,if we take silence for a second spell she is quite done for.
Nautilus is not that great but he is certainly dangerous,however we can out heal him and also since his hitbox is huge we can hide behind a minion or our ADC for us not to get hit from his Q.In teamfights he is not that useful but don't let him ult you,you are dead otherwise.That's all about him...he will most usually stand in the bush so we already know what to do...WARD.
Rakan is off the meta again.He is strong with his W,ULT however not that great.Since he is slower it's way obvious to see what he will do and since we can predict his W easily now we can E below him and prevent him from using his dangerous ult.
Nami is strong as heaven! We certainly are in trouble,her Q and W are very dangerous because both deal damage but with a twist.Her Q has a knock up and her W gives her speed...she can use her W for both poking and healing and that's what makes her so dangerous.She is very fast and a strong healer so try to poke her with Q carefully.When she gets 6 don't confront her without having her on low HP.
Tahm Kench is slow and a troll pick usually,he is not weak but he is very bad that' sfor certain...at least against Soraka,the fact that he is slow our Q allows us to root him easily with the Q-E combo.Our Equinox is a very strong spell that can terminate his hopes on saving that little Tristana waiting to be eaten by him.Nothing really that he can do,ward bushes Q him AA him...he is not very good at being a support anymore.
Not really a strong healer-Her base stats at lvl 1 is like looking on a minion.Her Ult is strong but she is very squishy and she will try to do damage on us with that.Try to keep your flash for her ult because she will most likely flash ult you in order to get close.Her Q-AA damage is dangerous but our R can save us from that.
Thresh is a great support that can mostly win any lane.However I have lost only seldom times from a Thresh.Our E can terminate his plans and if he doesn't catch us with his Q there's not much he can do.Vision is the key against him,he is an all in champion so that much can prevent it.
Lane bully,burst mage,CC,many plants that can slow and kill you. There's not much to say she outranges us and she deals damage so you have to be careful...don't underestimate her.Try to keep close to your ADC but not close enough for her to land double Q.Heal your ADC and focus on farming unless your jungler comes.
Queen Taricia is quite weak against us.Taricia has to get close to fight and I mentioned quite a lot what to do in that case.
This guys is a problem for us.He is a very strong ADC and he has no issue in early game,since he knows that our heals can't keep up with his damage.Either he focuses us or our ADC we will end up dying.I recommend you banning him but if you don't take exhaust and try to keep him away from your minions as much as possible.
He is slippery and strong.This guy has a very good burst but our Q and E are some very good allies that can outmatch his burst,if we slow and root him down he will become an easy target for our Jungler and he won't be able to live since in early he has slow AA without spells.
Twitch's periodical damage makes it hard for us because if we stand in his spells or if we get attacked by him we are being poisoned and therefore our healing potential gets lower.Plus his Q is very dangerous and that's why we will need Control Wards near us.Map awareness is what counters this guy,he is very good at engaging therefore always keep your eyes fourteen and your ears open.Q'ing him is a very good way harashing him since his AA are very slow in early game and his range is not really long without his ult.Poking him will be an easy job.
Ashe doesn't pose much threat to us,her continuous damage is a slight problem in late however in early Ashe and many other ADCs cannot outmuch Soraka's excellence.Poking her with AA's and Q is the way to go and she can't do anything about it.Keeping her away from the minions will put her so behind that she won't be able to proggress and comeback easily.Taking away her early will cause her fail late.
Very dangerous if he gets us low.His R does damage based on our missing HP.Though his immense burst comes to a huge price-his mobility if we can slow him with Q and root him with E he is most likely gone.
Honestly I haven't seen a good Quinn.She is slow and her E makes her easy to poke.I don't know what's to fear.Even her ULT is easy to interrupt since it's a channeling one.
High burst,fast AA's and a finisher ULT.Mentioning her range she is one of the strongest ADCs if played right.We can try to poke her but we will fail.We should ward river and enemy jungle and poke her support.Caitlyn is a good engager after 6 so be careful after that.
I've seen this guy as an ADC not the best job.Our E can ruin him and our poke is very annoying to him. He has a very high damage potential but if we dodge his tornados we will be fine.
So very strong! He has mobility and damage.His burst is so deadly and our poke is not viable since he has Q every 1 second and he ouranges us.Do what you do with Cait.Attack his support to not let him engage easily.He is a very safe adc since he can escape with an E however with our Equinox we got him good if we time it correctly.
Vayne is really strong and if she E us on a wall we are done for.Try to stay away from her which is quite easy in early ,plus you can control ward her ult and make it easier for your ADC.Don't get caught off guard.Poking her is easy but one slight mistake and you're dead.
She can slowly poke us down with E and staying behind our ally or minions is not an option.However...there's a huge thing that she fears and that's our [[Equinox]].Don't waste it after 6.Wait until she casts her utimade and interrupt her.
This guy as an ADC is no joke,I thought it was bad at first but I found myself winning with him a couple of times...your slow can make his poke easier and his ult with your E can make wonders.You can poke anyone down at this lane and you can make him a monster!
You both got slows she has damages you have heals,what else do you need to be convinced that this is actually a good lane for you!?
Since no one has escape spells or ways...you are in trouble if you are not both good at your champions.Ashe is certainly very strong in late just as you are and that's why your combo is great.
The good thing with Caity is that she can poke from afar just as you can...This makes it hard for the enemy and easier for you.You can heal her easily since she can hit from afar there's no real threat going near her and she has traps that can make you a great path to escape OR land E on someone.
Love this guy! So much damage and a slow!? he also has speed!? :O Heavenly good.Ardent can make wonders with him.
He can escape easily making your HP stay up longer,you both can poke down anyone easily since you are both star guardians casting spells from a long range.Ezreal is a very good ADC at the terms that we can heal him easily without dying ourselves.A simple silence can save him from anything and his annoying Qs are all over the place for us not to be focused-He is the one annoying the enemy not us--
My favourite!!~ He can fight from SOO far and he is SOO strong and you can just stare at him with your puppy eyes and tell him "Carry me pls".
Meh...Her ult makes it hard for her to stay in one place...not really the best combo,not bad either but it's easy for the enemy to focus us.
Yes,I like this guy he's cool! Cool looking Lucian and empathetic kind Soraka combo is great,he's fast and strong and we can enchant his damage by a lot.The longer Lucian stays alive the longer we stay alive.
She has a nice spell-kit! Her root can really help us with our things and she can save you anytime.Xayah players are smart and very good at planning so it makes us so good at poking,she rarely needs healing and her R is a life saver for us and her.
Good combo with his R and our E and he fights from very far,the only bad thing which doesn't make it ideal for us is that he is not like Jhin or Cait...he really has to stay far because he can't escape from anything so we can't poke at all sometimes.
He's ok but he is not as strong as the other adcs now and that's the reason he is not being picked as one.
What's with this guide?:I always try to make something special to work out many people will go with Aery but I prefer Kleptomancy!With the new season Soraka is not flawless especially her mana! We are a Cosmic Tenshi though and with Kleptomancy we can get a lot of gold from poking which is what we do and of coursewe can get free wards and mana potions!
Does it work?:Heaven yeah it does! I tried it on PBE and I saw many builds,mainly the Aery one but I wanted to give this one attention since it's fun and it actually wins games!.
P.S:Please leave a comment if you have any questions I love comments <3(My guide will constantly stay updated so you might come check it again to see if I updated anything new! I will inform you when it isn't updated anymore)
+ High Sustain Ability!
+Early game great poke potential/Late game insane healing power.
+Goes well with any adc.
+Carry Potential is huge.
+Crazy ability to contribute in teamfights!
+Splendid Silence to interrupt insults.
+Mana issues solved with new Manaflow Band!
-If focused you can die quite easily (unless you follow this guide you are an undying angel)
-Does not have any particullar escape abillity.
-Health issues need to use it right.
-The cooldown on W is high on early levels so she is not that great laner.
|Salvation:Our passive which helps us reach allies faster when they are lower than 40% it also makes us heals stronger whenever our allies are low on HP.You can use it as a saving tool or a fleeing tool.|
|Our W is great and it is named Astral Infusion!Strong and elegant-however with a long cooldown at first.Those seconds are gonna become endless when you watch your teamate die.The AP in these patches helps us outheal and outmatch any support.I feel that Soraka is stronger now than she was few patches ago.Our W will heal more when our Ally is low in health and you should combine it using Q on the enemy first for the regeneration before using W.|
|Our E-Equinox is a very annoying and useful ability,it is wise to use it when someone is channeling a Karthus for example or an Miss Fortune,even a Janna.It is a great root but it's hard to calculate where to land it,so use your Q to slow the enemy down while they chase you,zoning them is useful.|
|Grants you important vision,AP and CDR,I don't like Eye of Oasis on Soraka that much.With Spellthief's we can poke and gain cash~our cosmic cash is gonna rain down from Heaven~You know it pairs extremely well with Kleptomancy and you got Mana Regen from it and Poke potency...plus your heals will be more powerful!Eye of the Watchers is a very good item with Soraka because it encourages poking.No matter which build you use either it is Arcane Comet, Summon Aery, Kleptomancy, Dark Harvest...this item is a great way to go.The AP it gives will help us heal our allies with a bit more strength and it will give a great starting advantage to our poking since ADCs in early are very squishy.|
|Is an item that I wouldn't recommend right now.It is a good item because it gives AP-Shield and Heal enchant and CDR however there are many more great items that we can buy right now.Unless you're playing with a Jhin, Vayne or a Draven there's not a real person taking this.|
|Redemption is an item that can never dissapoint.Especially as Soraka it maximazes our healing potentional to the PEAK!Having it makes us useful while we are dead as well and since it is a core item right now for Soraka it can give a huge advantage in early game.Just imagine,you can heal yourself when low and if you match it with Mikale's Crucible you can make wonders.|
|Athene's Unholy Grailis a super strong item.I really like it on Soraka right now.The AP the CD the Mana regeneration it gives.It is a lovely item in games where the enemy team has characters that use poison and it saves a bunch of your HP since it can stack up healing.I'd tottaly recommend taking it in any game you're having...unless the enemy team is full AD.|
|Warmog's is not a bad item but there's not a real reason to have it on Soraka anymore.We can be the ultimate utility support by having Mikael's Crucible, Athene's Unholy Grail and Redemption and we can regenerate a lot of health with these three amazing items. Warmog's Armor require us to be level 16 so our base health will be almost maxed and it requires a lot of health items in order to reach the passive limit.It's not really worth it since it is expensive as well.|
|If you've read my first Soraka guide in the 7th season you could see that for me Locket was a must have item.Right now the trend is back and Locket truly shines.Since there are lots of high burst champions the shield that we can give to our team is truly helpful and the defense that we get of it benefits to our squishiness.This item truly shines in late game and it's a friend to any teamfight.I'd recommend you taking this item if you're having trouble staying alive against a mage.I am not saying that it will do much but even the slightest help can be very annoying for the enemy.|
|Knight's Vow is bad because they nerfed it and it only works for melee so don't mind it.~~~Just having it here if anything changes.|
|Shurelya's is an item that can help you reach an ally fast or engage with your team.There's not a real reason for you to get this item,you're not Rakan...however the health and the AP are kind of useful.If you take this item make sure to use it wisely,you can use it to speed up a Hecarim or a Rammus in order to engage but there's not a real reason to have it right now.|
|Twin Shadows is a good item for Soraka! It reveals and slows enemies which can be used both aggressively and deffensively.It can be a great item to save you from face-checking bushes and it will help you chase down enemies. Twin Shadows gives AP,CDR and Speed which makes it very useful in any kind of game|
|:With celerity giving you speed like hell but nerfing the AP there's not a real reason to buy it.Unless you need to be everywhere.|
|:I like how this item can give us both AP and more elixir regeneration! Isn't it great? You help and you get stronger,one of my favourite early items.|
|90 ap + Slow this item is a great thing!I like it because it's a fun build and it really works well,since champions like Garen and Darius are frequent now since the skins we get to slow them with our Starcall doublish.We can survive longer with Rylai's-Imagine it with Shurelya's.|
|We burn a percentance of their HP and it gives us HP.The AP is good too,I play this item when I go aggressive.It's not weak-AP Soraka is not a laughable build.It's actually annoying.I like the AP on Soraka and the damages.It is very very dangerous though.You should take it when you have many tanky champions on the enemy team,because you can burn off a percentange of their HP.|
|Ionian Boots of Lucidity are the way to go right now.Especially if you have the Aery or Comet build it really enchants your AP.|
|Inspiration is not commonly used by other supports however it goes well on Soraka because she can adapt on anything.The extra HP you will get is really helpful and the runes that it provides makes you a perfect support.|
|We are a Slow Master with this.It makes the enemies very irritated-with our Starcall landing and our Auto Attacks it is a very annoying and helpful strategy in order to win lane.You can't help it when yo usee melee supports you must tease them.|
|Biscuit Delivery is great in any case! It gives both mana and HP regardless and it's free!You get 4 of these fortune masters and you can stay in lane much more than you'd expect...healing won't be a problem for you anymore|
|Approach Velocity This rune is optional for Soraka but you can certainly reach allies faster with your passive.|
|Magical Footwear is not a laughing matter.Do you say that you want to buy brand items earlier? This is the way to go! Magical Footwear provides us with free boots and extra movement speed.We won't spend as much money as others do and we can buy something else.|
|It gives us 5% CDR-which is good since our W has a huge CD.We can safely take it without much thought and our proc items like Redemption CD is getting reduced.|
|Our second option is resolve and it will remain resolve in this patch as well.No change on that one however...|
|Conditioning is not that great on utility anymore-that armor and magic resist is for a more tanky Soraka and we can use it only for that.I would not recommend it on this patch,it's not bad-but we have better options.|
|Revitalize is always the best option on utility supports because it increases our healing.Be sure to always take it no matter what.It heals more when the target is low and it is huge with our ultimate.|
|Soraka heals anyway so font of life is quite pointless to get as Soraka.However if you have an Ezreal as a teamate or a Vayne suit yourself...it's a fun rune but I wouldn't recommend it.|
|Bone Plating is easily one of my favourite runes because as utility we are very squishy and as Soraka we are even more squishy.This rune here-will help you become a little bit tougher in the laning phase and you can bully the enemy easily.|
|The Guardian rune is quite popular right now and it's actually very useful against lane bullies like Ezreal!It can help you stay alive and if your ADC is ignited you can save it easily.|
|Sorcery is the way to go this meta!|
|It's becoming quite the trend to have Arcane Comet I mean.Great damage potential which leads to annoying poke.I highly recommend this rune if you feel confident and if you want the enemy ADC to have a hard time.|
|I really recommend this item since Soraka runs oom(out of mana) fast!|
|Celerity got a little bit nerfed along with many other runes this patch,I'd recommend you go Transendence for the spicy-spicy CD build!|
|Is the way to go right now since Celerity only offers MS.It maximazes your CD potential and it gives you 10% CDR after lvl 10 anyway.Since this meta has to do with so many CDR items I will heavily recommend it.|
|I'd recommend our lovely Transcendence! It gives AP depending on how much CD we have,we can go with the full supportish build and Soraka will be a monster!|
|It burns some of the enemy's HP off,not very harmful but quite useful with ignite don't you agree? It also reduces the enemy's healing pot potential.|
|Flash is the best summoner spell and it will always be.With the ability of the prey Soraka is doomed to always use it since she has no escape from enemies.It's a must have.|
|Ignite will always be my favourite support rune and since it is popular with utility supports we should get it in order to finish off kills and secure them or prevent Heal.Securing kills is not bad.We have to be ahead since our ADC farms anyway and we don't.Early money will make you a great asset to the team.|
|Feeling like the enemy has way too much burst? Mage supports and Lucian, DravenADCs? Then I recommend Exhaust. Exhaust is frequently picked when the enemy has heavy damage and it is far more useful than ignite in late game right now.|
|[Heal] is a decent Summoner Spell on Soraka however you should get that whenever your ADC doesn't.|
|Please play this only in normals-it's only for fun!It doesn't give anything great in ranked games-Yes you might be able to go in a teamfight fast,but your early game is important too.|
|Barrier is a very strong summoner spell-yes it is.It doesn't only protect us but we can make plays with it.Enemy focuses Soraka when they gank on early.You can easily exploit the fact that Barrier is not very often in these patches and make the enemies do mistakes.|
~Warding/Engaging:Warding is crucial and can decide wether you must play offensively or deffensively! Knowing where the enemy jungler is,is gonna help you lots! Therefore we must have as an all seeing Tenshi; MAP AWARENESS.Knowing that enemy jungler is Top or somewhere that he cannot aid their useless bot lane;allows you to poke a lot and of course get easy kills.I'd suggest you looking for enemy wards too because if they can control vision they are equallizing their strength.
~Roaming:Roaming as a support means that you leave your baby ADC un protected.Therefore you should not leave lane for a long time,I suggest you roam for only 1 minute maximum because if you roam mindlessly you are not gonna get any gold or experience and probably your ADC is gonna die(and then ping to you that enemies are mssing).Deciding when to Roam is up to you! I mostly roam when I recall back to base,to control ward river bush and allow mid lane and me to have vision in such important place.If you see mid lane is pushed,go for a kill (Always though keep in mind where the enemy jungler would be).Roaming with your jungler is a great choice if he is close and if there's an Infernal prioritize it first.
~Positioning:Positioning on Soraka is not only important is everything!Should not get devoured by your sense of power! Hiding behind a Fighter or a Tank is the most reasonable and logical choice.Never go near your ADC in a teamfight first thing because they will instantly get focused,remember your ADC wants goood positioning as well.With our new reworked Soraka we can turn a teamfight with great timing! When to use Redemption or Wish.Wait until the enemy team starts to burst down people,then Silence their support or Midlaner,like Katarina not an ADC or a Fighter(People who use autoatacks are not meant to be silenced),then use healing and defensive power to your team,you deny their burst and sustain your teamfight.Soraka can position well and you can use it as your advantage.Try to kite and constantly move.
~When to use Wish:Wish is a great ability but you can overestimate it or underestimate it,certain times you might feel you won't be able to save your ally if he is caught and you will hesitate using it but certain champions like Kayn can escape easily from enemies.Don't hesitate to use your ULTIMATE when you believe you can save someone and don't let the enemy team to receive a kill.Sometimes though there's nothing you can do to save someone who has done a mistake.Try to use it in late game while in teamfights (teamfights sometimes are sudden so that's why I am yelling for you to not waste your Angelique power that easily) and don't overestimate it by using it whenever thinking that you have a low cooldown on it.Your ultimate is a huge teamfight helper!Nevertheless your ultimte in late is gonna heal everyone almost full HP when they have below 40%,I'd suggest using it then.
~Don't be greedy:Since we poke we often get greedy,try to control the situation in a way you won't die and won't get damage.Dying like a greedy tootie patootie is the least thing we want.Poke Support if it is utility and ADC when it farms,go in for kills when your ADC starts to play aggressively.
~Have HP and Mana awareness:It's very important checking how much Health and Mana you and your ADC has! and the enemy as well!In order to engage you have to be careful and with the new season our mana is burning really easily,however with Kleptomancy and Cookies is easy to take it back,use it wisely.Our Hp is an important factor of using W! Watch your HP and don't mindlessly press W to heal your ADC or whoever is low,you come first on HP! Remember that.If the enemy is low or don't have mana is a good time for you and your ADC to engage and try to pick off kills.
~Be Positive!:Last but not least,I'd suggest you always try to laugh off your mistakes and learn from them.As much as you don't believe it learning from your experience pays off more than any guide,many pros advise you to watch your replays in order to learn from your mistakes,if you feel you lack something you should do so!Never blame your mistakes on others and try to never flame your teammates.You are a support so provide emotional support to them when they flame or tilt!(You are an angel so when an enemy is tilting then tilt them more!).
The mistake of the Support:You can't possibly believe that you are able to save everyone? No you can't.Every support struggles with decision making.What might be the right decision you ask? Well it depends on the moment.For example when to heal or what objective to do! A support must be aware of everything,it takes practice but support players are often the best shotcallers.When your team is lost don't make the mistake to let others do things and you just follow-NO!In order to win you need to lead.Express in a kind manner what other's they should do-how to group up and what objective to follow.Not everyone is going to listen to you but it's important.
