So... maybe I'm an idiot and maybe this is a terrible idea, but I've been thinking about trying Rammus support, and I need someone to tell me it's a bad idea.
First off, bottom lane is typically AD Carry + support. Rammus is strongest against AD champs, so putting Rammus in bottom lane as support can potentially work to shut down the AD carry. His taunt will help secure kills for his fellow AD Carry, additionally his ult works great for securing tower kills, even if it does steal some minion kills from the next incoming wave.
Now, I'm not saying Rammus is some OP choice for bottom lane support, but in draft pick and ranked, suppose the enemy has picked an AD solotop, an AD jungler, and of course their AD carry. That leaves them with their support, who typically isn't dishing out a lot of damage, and their AP carry mid. The AP carry mid would be the only one that would scare Rammus at all, but typically AD carries are scarier late game anyway. And even if Rammus doesn't shut them down in laning phase, the armor he has built plus his taunt and W (and a thornmail) could easily shut down the AD carry in the mid and late game.
Am I right? Or is this a terrible idea?
