Season 3 Support Power Rankings
April 5, 2018 – The regular season is over and it’s time to look at the power rankings for the Supports! There is no doubt that a solid Support can really help the bot lane dominate early, which usually means a big snowball if Mid or Jungle has been active. We chose the players whose performance, in our opinion, has the greatest potential to swing their team’s performance for better or worse. To start we looked at the basics, such as KDA, CS/M, mechanics, champ pool, warding, team fight positioning, synergy with ADC, etc.
But before we get there, it’s important that we consider what a Support really is. They’re the player who isn’t afraid to get down and dirty in the corner. The bruiser who comes out from the bushes just ready to throw down, right up in their opponents face. A Support is on their feet when everyone else is going down, picking them back up and pushing them back into the fight! Some Supports bring the pain, they’re in the back, healing, shielding, tossing out stuns and de-buffs left and right. They make sure that tower is not going down, tell me you haven’t seen Bookcase Man (Braum) standing up in front with his shield, blocking the incoming of 2 champs and a full wave; it’s balls – straight up. They’re in the Jungle clearing wards when they know in a 1v1 ambush its probably not going their way. Before you flame your Support, try playing the position, its not easy, especially dealing with random queues. Without further ado, ladies and gents, your Support Power Rankings are here!
