Within a drafted team, the Support is one of the two champions assigned to the bottom lane alongside the Bottom Carry. This role's initial goal is to assist their more vulnerable team mate through the earliest stages of the game, and is a position that suits champions with either utility, disengage or high base damage.
Within a duo lane, the optimal strategy for earning gold is to designate a single champion to farm while the other is recommended to purchase an economy item. The Support is expected to fulfil the latter designation, and consequently the position is not suitable for champions that are highly dependant on item-based power spikes. The Support is also expected to be the primary contributor to the team's vision.
