Playing supports in Solo queue means you can't carry, but it's fun even if your team loses and they blame you (which they usually do, I once got blamed for losing when I was 4-9-33 and our Tryn was 0-15-2).

I got myself to a maximum of 1337 ELO last season by playing Soraka and Karma, and then I screwed it up by playing other champs randomly.

It's all about luck, I guess, as you can't carry the team.

My only ranked experience as support was in HoN I did wind up getting to near top elo before beta went down with only about 1/4 the games played of other players.

My secret, I switched to a carry.

But seriously I did play a lot of support and did well for a while.
SK nymph is high elo support player maybe you can watch his stream for how he does it.

My advice is just play the best most supportive role that you can and that's not just about healing. It's about baiting and planing team fights. Sometimes make sure you die instead of a carry.

I'd be timing Baron 7m respawn, Dragon 6m respawn, and both enemy red and blue buffs 5m respawn.
By doing this your team mates will feel you're into it and might put on their game faces.

Don't fall into the idea that you need to play passively just because you're support. But don't feed for no reason either.

Support can actually carry, you need do check for yourself which one you prefer carrying with. Apart from that, try communicating with the team as much as possible, like hey, group up, hey they are doing baron. And of course warding saves lives. Support carries more then you tink.

Duos with Candy Panda/Plays mid AP carrys.

No support player other than like... PGB was dumb enough to climb elo with supports.

It's not efficient.

Unless you are a god support player, you will not carry games at your elo level, and even if you do, they will be so few and far between that the elo climb will be very slow.
Tri lane for life.

Just take a support who owns in the laning phase such as Taric or Alistar. If you have at least a decent carry player you should be able to win the lane.

If you enjoy supporting you should pick up janna, buy regrowth pendant and a mana pot/ward depending on if they have a jungler upgrade it to phil stone and get heart of gold + boots. upgrade to shuyala revelier before upgrading boots, skill sequence e-w-q after that R>E>W>Q. after upgrading boots just spam wards. and i mean really spam. especially if your team mates dosent buy any. some games i buy 5-10 wards each time i b. anyways just keep your teammates alive even at the cost of your own life and you should do fine^^
