Views: 675 Three Laws of Supports
Rule #1: You are a support. You are your carry's *****.
Rule #2: Your carry is a dumbass. Let him focus on poking minions while you keep track of the entire map.
Rule #3: Your carry is a still dumbass. You need to tell him what to do. Ping him to follow up your target or to fall back while you peel.
Rule #4: If you can engage on a fight to distract the enemy from killing an ally, do so. If neither of you will survive if you try to go in, don't try. Your gp10 means your death is less of a loss of personal gold and less of a gain of gold to the enemy that your carry or mage's death.
Rule #5: Your carry can't get EVERY kill. This includes CS. If your carry is not in a proper position to take a kill, take it.
Rule #6: Your jungler can't be everywhere, especially if he's dead. Place a Vision Ward in your own tribush and in river so your jungler knows where the enemy has vision or to deny the enemy vision.
...any more recommendations?
