I'm just curious if a role of a person could be to help others get kills while surviving on fewer kills and just in general help the team like a support but still kind of be a fighter

gangplank and wukong do this very well

all credit for this amazing sig goes to the nameless bard

if you thought what i said was worth it a rep would be rainbow pony awesome

A lot of current junglers work like this, such as Alistar or Malphite. Basically, most champs who go either top or jungle and build GP10 items fall into this category.

Because you're playing with bads. Crit GP is massively suboptimal, doesn't really do better damage than tankier builds, and certainly can't survive if focused for more than a half second. Building GP10 items on GP is fine.

GP bruiser is much more satisfying.

Think of it this way. Total damage = Survivability * Damage/second

Critplank is high damage, low survivability. Overall low damage.
Tankplank is low damage, high survivability. Overall low damage, but you don't really die.
Bruiser plank is the best route honestly. Won't die so quick, deal enough damage to be significant, etc.

Also, about the topic: Supports will never get enough gold to do it. Pretty much all junglers will fall into that category except for the high damage/snowball ones.

I'm calling it. Jarvan IV

He can make a nice kill lane since he has high base damage on his abilities.

E > W > Q, and piledrive them with Cataclysm.
