Made it to silver 3 as support. Is it possible to reach gold as support only?

I supported my way to plat and am continuing to rise, so I'd say yeah.
All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day
Put the pieces back together my way

More than possible, it's how I hit gold way back when.

it helps if you get adcs that aren't doormats when you get Thresh/Blitz/Leo/Taric.

as long as you can play the thing you play well. you will eventually climb out of w/e elo you are in to w/e elo you belong in with that champ.

your mechanics with other champs will probably decline tho. so its not usually a great idea to do.

You're gonna run into more games where people call support in chat.

Ive made it to gold 1 with support as my best role.

As someone who supported to gold, it's a mix of preventing your ADC from horrendously feeding, and dumb luck. Half my games in silver had the enemy afk and got me freelo al the way up to gold.

If you're really dedicated to supporting to gold though, you have to know what you're doing, what support synergies with each carry, and you absolutely have to be aggressive 100000% of the time without overdoing it and feeding.

Just keep at it and you'll be there in no time.
