So sick of you clueless players who don’t realize the problem is supports and support items not adc.

They aren't tho, whats op is that adcs get to have their owm insane deffensive items on top of too much dmg, lifesteal and their support. The issue really is adcs not sups

So you were playing Annie and lost a 1v1 against an ADC?

Supports and ADCs both have way too much going for them.

That being said I find ADCs more annoying because after a certain point even dedicated duelists like Fiora or Irelia can't fight them, hell playing assassins is basically trolling because after laning phase you might as well not exist because the ADC, your primary target, can blow you up faster than it takes your whole rotation to chunk half their HP.

How are they surviving Annies burst with one MR item? Is the Annie not building items or what because an Annie with 2-3 items kills an adc with one MR item in one rotation. I remember 1v1ing a wits end Varus without even having to ult even when I was massively below the normal power curve. If you can't get to two items before the adc builds their fourth item you'll have problems yeah.

Supports are AP champs so it doesn't fit with their "AD is OP" narrative.

Even as a Brand support player I must admit AP items are too strong.

At full build annie burst is around 1000+300% ap (including her shield being attacled a bit), if she got 500 ap (which is quite a normal amount) she will burst for ~ 2400 instantly and 2800 (with tibbers attacks and ludens over ~3 sec) -> 3200 with ignite.

An adc with bloodthirster and a maw will have ~ 2400 effective hp against annie (meaning she needs to do true dmg in order to 1 shot him) and will heal for ~ 50 hp/aa -> 75hp/sec trough grievious wounds with only the lifesteal from bloodthirster. If you can do some easy maths you'll realize that if he only has 25% magic resistance he will survive the fight against annie (hell i didn't even factor heal in this scenario so) while having more effective range than her, no deaths dance and no phantom dancer.

Overall,sure annie will usually kill an adc anyway because it won't always be lategame and adcs won't play perfectly, but any support or the adc having a slight lead means he will be killing her which is the dumb part (also keep in mind annie has one of the strongest burst out of any mage, champions like malzahar or lissandra simply do not stand any chance ever against an adc once a certain point of the game is reached).

I ain't saying supports are weak, they are strong,but they aren't dominant. Being a good support can lead to an amazing winrate because of how strong adcs are right now.

ADC is nothing with out a great support. A good support that denies farm in lane vs an adc will make that adc useless.
