|Competitive NA League of Legends has been quite stagnant in recent months in terms of support picks. The same picks are regurgitated each and every week without much thought for why certain champs are being picked over others. Outside of Riot introducing new viable support champions like Thresh and Nami, the supports we see are generally Lulu, Sona, Zyra, Janna and the occasional Fiddlesticks. The melee supports of S1 and S2 are not played as much because the risk of running your duo lane into a 2v1 where the jungler shows up results in the team with a ranged support being at a distinct advantage for taking the first tower. Melee supports are useless in taking towers when against the top laner and jungle combo, which is a common occurrence in today’s game. I will be going over all of the supports that I think are worth playing and talk about their role.|
