Since I have babbled a wall of text I will start with my question, Should a support champ be picked to cover an ADCs weaknesses or strengths? Some examples would do just nicely, I have seen a chart that gives the best combos for support/ADC, couldn't find it myself.
What I'm trying to do with this question is provide a sort of foundation for picking my support champion for an ADC champion or even vice versa what ADC should I go with certain support champions. I ask this because of the key role support plays, as games are won and lost in the hands of a support just as easily as they are with any role in LoL.
Support plays such a big role early game for Bot Lane that overlooking the importance will cause you too fail repeatedly. I do my best to pick support champions (I prefer meta support champions) that I have done well with in a certain ADC/Support combo. I will mention one of my favorite combinations being Leona and Twitch. Twitch usually being a weaker ADC (atleast in my eyes) combined with the awsome power that is Leona allows me to feed him repeatedly, and not until yesterday did I find myself doubting my knowledge of the support roll. Lets just say I did awful, one of my worst games with Leona, the weird part being the mistakes I made weren't all that severe, mistakes like harassing to hard, causing us to lose the trade and be forced to tower hug till a jungler saves us. We basically just got outplayed and for some reason those are the hardest loses to swallow.
Anyways, I started to think "why am I playing this support champion just because I have done well with this support/adc combo in the past". I started to do this a lot when playing League of Legends as I had recently watched a video about elo hell where the guy talked about the only thing that holds players back is their refusal to take blame for their own mistakes in a game and blame everything else. Having been consistanly stuck around 1000 elo last season with over 100 games played in ranked, I had lost all hope of ever getting anywhere close to 1250 or 1500 for that matter.
Getting back on track now, I go back to my thought about support/ADC combos. I realized that I need to start picking support champions to play to an ADCs weakness and/or strength. An example I will mention is the Vayne/Nunu, which to me is probably the deadliest bot lane combination. Nunu having huge sustain and harass abilities allows vayne to lay back and CS all day and if engaged in a 2v2, Nunu gives an attack speed boost that makes Vayne tear through even the tankiest of supports. Not to mention Vayne being the strongest late game ADC in LoL, some people would debate Corki being the best late game (semantics really).
Now to get to my question, I would like to start picking support champions that mesh well with an ADC. Support Champs that cover an ADCs weakness or plays to their strengths, or both. I think counterpicks bot lane to be a mere myth and really never decides the outcome of the game. I'm convinced ADC/Support combinations to be the real path to winning.
