General-purpose Support Tier List | Patch 13.18
Based off current ad-hoc meta(s) and overall playing strength of a champion kits; this is not only intended as my own personal analysis on support as a role, but also for those that find this relevant, should they find this useful to them. Adjustment and update will be made as the season(s) progresses, particularly if it feels to me the general broad-wide meta has maybe shifted toward certain synergies that make the relevant champion(s) feel stronger to play or play against; but, overall, the purpose of this tier list is NOT intended to mirror FOTM and said win-rate% of certain champions at certain periods, however as with most tier lists, though those may also come under consideration simply because of their inherent influence. As a result, you may find this tier-list considerably more relevant for clash/ranked flex/premades.
With that said, though this is again a reflection of a personal perspective and may subjugate particular biases, the valuations of the picks are intended to draw from the strategic nature of the champion itself. That is to say, this list is intended to reflect champions and their kit (skills) and what those champions can bring to a team [vs. another team's support to his/her team] comparatively. My methodology goes from left to right, stronger to weaker in overall playing-strength, in each tier.
