I play support champions very frequently and greatly enjoy the role, but I would like another viewpoint as to why it is, again, a "problem".
its not support itself that is the problem, it's how it currently effects the game.
supports are a must-have at the moment, and that's because they benefit their team in a duo lane more than any other current comp. they are a rock in this meta that won't be moved for some time unless that 0cs nonsense is changed.
there is no negative to having a support - more gold for team, heals, wards, cv, etc. With any other role you then need to spread gold more, get less wards, no cv b/c it gimps your kit, etc.
idk if they can fix it by making scaling for supports better, and increasing cooldowns for lower ranked spells while lowering base amounts. something's gotta be done because it's honestly ruining the game for a lot of people. It's becoming really boring for a lot of players, myself included, that you are FORCED to play a certain way or get stomped. This is the only thing I enjoyed more about DOTA - basically all champs were viable and could be played a myriad of unique ways. You can't do that in LoL.
