This was done because mobility is the most broken thing in the game and they wanted a way to stop people from taking boots and pots starting, just like people used to always start doran's, so they gave everyone a speed bump and made boots 1 less attractive to start with.
I would love to here why you think a speed bump across the board is a specifically better for supports than other roles.
As a support main myself, I can explain why we are jumping for joy over this change.
supports rarely get to take boots early, you gotta build your gp10's and wards then get basic boots. This means not having boots for a fair portion of lane phase won't hurt quite so much and maybe I can focus on building that new ward item first... >.> <3
I see how it helps jungle out, but it helps supports a lot too.
I love a lot of the new support items! spam them wards! (free bushchecksthnx)
Can we make that flask thing upgrade-able it sorta kinda sucks right now... like maybe it can get better the longer you have it or something.. idk it needs a little help....
I'd like to point out that nami is awesome.. her ult is like improved sona ult! her heal is OP in team fights <3 liken that 5 sec of pain on the e... and q.. MY BUBBLES!! yup I like it! she will be warmly accepted into the (I'm really an ap mid champ) support family<3
oh and freak can jungle her too I'm sure >.>
so far loving the support buffs to this patch!
