Just for fun and discussion. A tier list in this game is fairly silly anyway, as they aren't directly competing against another support, so you can form it based on match-ups. But let us see what we can come up with, like I said, just for fun.

S Tier

A Tier

B Tier

C Tier

Karma Tier

What do you guys think? Really struggled with the Soraka/Zyra/Blitz/Alistar order. Also, of course each support does different things, brings different abilities to lanes/team fights, and synergizes differently with each ADC. I am aware of this and how silly a tier list is due to this. This is just a fun activity trying to rank supports due to there overall usefulness.

A good Alistar is A, even S material.
And Leona should be A as well.

Shouldn't the aggressive supports be higher up?

-Sona should be moved down to A
-Taric and Leona should be moved to S
-Soraka should be moved to C
-Blitz should be moved to A
-Karma isn't a support

Everything else looks fine though.

A good Alistar is A, even S material.

With how it looks, the only support he counters is Leona, since the only way she can get in is by getting up close, but even then she can counter-stun him. Everyone else has proper tools to keep him away, and with how cheap wards are now, he's really easy to shut down as a support.

Interesting points. Most of this I have gotten from watching tournaments and self experience, but have never discussed it with other people, other than a couple of my team mates, never in depth though. So this will be good.

I do feel a good Alistar could be A tier. However, a good anything is A tier. I feel all things equal he could jump up to Soraka's level. The problem is, while Soraka late game isn't great, the MR does help, as well as global ult. Alistar may be slightly better early game, but in Team Fights he doesn't really bring a whole lot.

Same could be said, albeit slightly less, for Zyra and Blitz. Leona being A I can see agreeing with. It was a hard decision. Ultimatly I felt that Janna and Taric are just all around better (however slight) and she deserved to lead off the third tier, rather than be third in the second tier, mainly due to the same reasons as Alistar.

I disagree with Sona being moved down. Yeah the low base health early game is weak. But she has to have some small downfall, the rest of her kit is near perfect. Auras, great poke, movement speed buff, movement slow, damage decrease, amazing team fight ult. Taric I feel is really great, but slightly less than Sona and Nunu. I could see him moving above Lulu and Janna and into S tier, if he brought slightly more to the Team Fight phase than a single target stun, and some good auras. And no Karma isn't a support. That's why she gets to be sad and lonely at the bottom.

I've support Ahri once. It's totally viable.

On a serious note, shouldn't Blitz be A or S material? A good Blitz just oozes lane dominance.
