Is it impossible to climp ladder as solo Q support?

#1bighairycamelPosted 4/10/2013 8:01:14 PM
I main support and 4 games in a row get we get our ADC ffed and we lose to some neckbearded extra-chromosome having half wit. Seems like only duo Q with someone skilled is the way to climb ladder as main support.

It's a lot LOT easier as an aggressive support, for sure.

My win rate in Ranked is better with Leona than any other champion I own, just for example.

Leona/Taric/Lulu are the holy trio of support "carries", with Thresh and Blitz being great whenever they're not banned. So never.

It can be tricky. You need to play certain supports, and shy away from ones that rely too heavily on the competency of your partner.

The partner isn't the problem, we win our lane. It's just 1 of the 2 other lanes that muffs up and screws us.

Maybe until you reach Gold, after that you need to duo.

I would say the opposite.
in bronze you will get a lot of bad adc's who won't know how to capitalize on your advances even when you are spoon feeding them kills.

gold+ I'd expect them to be more competent.
a good support will win the lane, and the game!

See, therein lies another problem. I've laned with so many ADCs that can sort of make use of my being a good support and go 5/0 in lane, but when teamfights roll around and I can't hold their hand the whole time they suddenly end up being 6/9 because they have **** mechanics. True story.
