Stop supporting as nid

Seriously. Early game it's fine, but mid to late game support nid is absolutely terrible. She has no utility except for a heal. The javelin as a support build does basically no damage by the time mid game rolls around, so if the game hasn't already been won, you're pretty much handicapping your entire team. Real supports have utility. Even unconventional supports like lux have a root and slow. Simply throwing out a heal here and there does not justify your place on the team, because someone like taric can heal, stun, and provide extra armor bonus for allies.

So stop supporting with nid, and save her for a traditional mid/top role where you can actually build damage gear.

I like shorts. They are comfy and easy to wear.

This. I had a Nid "Supporting" me as a top-lane Darius, who basically made it her business to put them at low enough health with her spears for me to successfully/easily dunk them. It was helpful, to be perfectly honest, but it was weird and if someone insisted on "supporting" me in top lane I'd have preferred it to be a real support.

Nid's spear blows mid to late game if she doesn't have damage items to boost it, and if she's supporting she shouldn't have any damage gear. If it's a nid support with damage gear, she's instead gimping her team by not providing group buffs and adequate wards like what a support is supposed to do.

even with damage gear ap nid is terrible. im so sick of seeing people pick that **** because in the hands of 90% of the lol population AP nid is among the worst builds in the game. she has one damaging ability that also happens to be one of the most difficult skillshot in the game and offers practically no teamfight presence at all.

this is possibly because my friend insists on playing her and totally blows but I really hate seeing AP nid..

I don't mind doing a Nid support but if you pick her you should be sure there is a good bit of CC already on your team.

While we at it, stop playing Lux support and building AP.
