HOW will the NEW SUPPORT ITEMS affect CHAMPION SELECTION in Season three?

Will aggressive supports still reign, or will they crumble under a new regime of long range harass support?
or something else

WELL you can TAKE A LOOK at THE NEW ITEMS and maybe you can FORM AN OPINION and RETURN TO THIS TOPIC with it.

Supports don't items. Supports support.

I'd love to hear your life story and all, but I'm kind of busy eating this nice plate of "I don't give a damn".

I see supports being stronger or weaker based on their late-game prowess, rather than "Great early game, at least has a presence/meatshield capability late-game"

For instance, Sona's may start kitting out as a second, weaker ADC alongside being a support. Lulu may as well. Taric and Leona on the other hand may go very tanky, and we may begin to see supports able to take quite a bit of damage (more than they currently can by far).


So, I think support may actually be a new role with a new kit. Right now, a Leona in bot lane isn't really "OK, we have a tank!", you still expect someone to fill that role elsewhere. Season 3, that may change, and having Sona + Graves bot may put enough damage in mid-late game that we may see tankier options elsewhere.

Now these points of data make a beautiful line, and we're out of beta we're releasing on time! So I'm glad I got burned, think of all the things we learned!
