I did it because I was hoping to piss off someone like you for doing so.

That's so badass!

But meh, I don't get pissed. I don't even play ranked, what am I saying. I'm level 18 lol.

Why would you play any champ for the first time in ranked? Are you suicidal? Overconfident? Do you just like pissing off your teammates?

Or... did they just need a support, and you said "Ah screw it, the only support I have is Soraka, guess it'll be me, YOLOSWAG."

You said you did a swell job, so I'm willing to give you the benefit of a doubt here.

Thought I'd add, Soraka is deceptively tanky. It's funny watching people try to kill you while they're getting killed by your ADC or whoever else.


What's wrong with that? Better try something against competent opponents rather than stomping scrubs in normal games.

I test champs all the time and sometimes I do well, sometimes I don't. Same with champs I've played hundreds of times.

This. If you aren't just flat out terrible at the game trying champs 1st time in ranked isn't hard. Especially if the champ isn't even hard (soraka).

Soraka is definitely pretty dull. She's my go-to support pick for when I'm in the middle of something else or don't feel like paying much attention. She's also my go-to pick when I'm on a losing streak and just give zero f***s about a champ that requires effort. >.>

Clutch silences are also good.

And for most people supporting at gold and lower elo, Soraka is the best support you can be because I know most of you don't know how to support at all so having a healbot like Soraka is better than having a Leona that stands behind the ADC and never does anything other than force the ADC to 1v2.5 in lane because he now has a useless Leona sapping away exp also in addition to being zoned out by the enemy bottom adc and support.

I agree that she's super-helpful but also braindead boring to play.

Or they picked Leona and the ADC picked someone that can't take advantage of her at all, like an Ashe that tries to go in after Leona leaps on a Draven, who then proceeds to STILL burst Ashe down after being stunned because he's a broken idiot at low-level dueling.
