Description

Just a support main's attempt at organizing the types of supports and trying to get good at filling out team compositions and counter picking. I include off -meta supports, because why not? I've begun adding in smaller sections to really pin down WHEN you want each support.

Organized left to right, strong to weak. Champions will still be in a category even with very little capability in it, as there is a difference in having little of something, and absolutely nothing of something.

Each support is organized into each category they have even small strengths in. A champion with multiple talents may be lower down in multiple categories, but thus being strong overall (like Lulu).

Feel free to let me know where I've left champions out or where you disagree!

Thanks for reading!
1

Poke

Whittling down (or chunking down) the enemy. Weak to hard engage, outdone by sustain.

2

Peel

Made to peel off engagers. Weak to poke, outscaled by sustain.

3

Protection

Made to mitigate damage or negate it entirely. Anti-poke rather than anti-engage peel. Weak to heavy damage and usually lose trades, but survive to heavy engage.

4

Engage

Finding the right time to engage, then going All-In. Weak to poke, rendered less useful by disengage.

5

Catch

Has CC capabilities that don't require going All-In. Prevents enemy escape.

6

sustain

Sustaining them and their ADC through poke, often trying to go even in lane and shine later in the game. Weak to hard engage.

7

Scaling

Tries to go even in lane, scales well late game with either more levels or gold. Or, a hero that is placed in the support role to survive until their ultimate late-game usefulness. The anti-supports, if you will. Weak to a hard Engage laning opponent who can snowball against them.

8

Censer Users

When you have an AD champion other than your ADC, it can be very helpful  to have a good ardent censer user. If you've got two others, it's a really good idea. Not great against armor heavy team, but you also force them more into armor-heavy items.

9

Blind Picks

For one reason or another, these champions function well without knowing what they're headed into, and it's highly suggested to have one in your arsenal when you don't know the enemy composition.
