    Hey guys, I've been playing league for about 1.5 years and I'm thinking it's time to play some ranked, any tips for me before I dive in?

    Thanks.

    What is your main role?
     
  4. - first, you need to have 2 roles you can play and about 2-3 champions pool you can play well per role (6 champions)
    - you need to know what is actually in the meta (for bans)
    - constantly watching minimap
    - vision, vision and more vision (limit for support is 3 wards, + one control), never stack 2 wards on yellow trinket
    - learn where are the best places for wards (depending on the situation, ex if your team is winning or losing)
    - learn to change builds, adapt it to your and enemy's team
    - objectives like drake, herald, nashor, turrets
    - control your push on lanes (if you see that bot is pushed and enemy dissapeared, most probably he will push so prepare to send someone to defend)

    - DON'T FLAME, the more you flame the more your team will troll you
    - be constructive, if you make some mistake say "sry, my bad", if your teammate get a kill or objectif say "good job"
    - use pings, missing enemy, danger, drake, baron etc
    - follow your "ss" if possible

    if you want more just tell what specifically you wanna know :)

    A fellow support player, how nice.
    Your starting item should be Spellthief's Edge and the three potions. On your laning phase you should focus on just poking your enemies and wait for your adc to make his move to go all in.
    Get frostfang and boots after so that you have high moblity for easier pokes. Frostfang will also help you earn more gold faster.
    Sightstone is your next item but keep your trinkets. Switch to wipe lense only after you feel you own the game or have ruby sightstone. Having a lot of wards on you can really help you to keep a nice defensive lane that cannot be easily ganged.
    Then goes redemption. A really useful item that can turn the tide of fights if it is perfectly timed and placed.
    After that it's on you to decide what to build next depending on how the game has evolved.Ardent censer is a really nice choice if you have a good adc but if not go the AP way.

    For more info you can send me a pm and i will add you on discord if you want to talk it out more.

    p.s. It's my first season that i go full support main and it has worked quite good for me. I 'm not high elo yet but i am getting there faster than before. You can look my stats here https://eune.op.gg/summoner/userName=Rav3nous
    i play on EUNE.

    Because you play support you are most likely to be flamed for the teams loss or teams mistakes. Don't get too down and enjoy the game ;)

    I don't play support. I also haven't climbed that high. My goal this summer is to get out of Silver.
    Things I have learned the past month because I apparently have hit a plateau:

    1. Never tilt. I am sure everyone says this, but take it seriously. You will have to train your "no tilt" muscle. RANKED PLAY WILL TEST THAT MUSCLE. Once that muscle is overworked, do not play. You'll watch your LP disappear playing tilted. Someone else sarcastically offered to mute all chat, and I would say that helps keeps your tilt level down when it begins to reach peak levels. Not tilting also allows you to evaluate your own choices, this leads nicely into my next point.

    2. Watch Your Replays. Riot has made it much easier to watch replays the past few seasons. I have been watching replays and looking at every death. What killed me. And then storing that into my memory databases, and never allowing that to kill me again.

    3. Look at the mini map. WARD. New players do not realize how important these are, and as a support, it's your job to ensure that all the right places are warded at the right times.

    again I am only now starting to climb out of silver as a top laner ,but these are my suggestions that would be for any lane. Not tilting would be the best advice I have though.

    Edit: Watch and learn from the pros. The king of support Aphromoo has decent youtube.
