Heads up! We'll be shipping a hotfix tomorrow to address the 0 cs top lane strategy that's emerged in both solo queue and pro play in the past few weeks. We don't take this lightly, as we generally want to support as many unique ways to play League as possible, but the gameplay

offered via this strategy asks you to ignore many of the skills learned playing League over the years, provides very little counterplay, and also lends itself to a fairly poor viewing experience at the highest levels of play. We are choosing to act quickly rather than adopt a

wait and see approach since the risk to the quality of many games of League is too high should this strategy become optimal/widespread. These aren't the most elegant changes, but we wanted to prioritize expediency rather than wait on finding the perfect change. Thanks everyone

I sure do love being punished as a support player because y'all can't envision a situation in which a support might not be conjoined with an ally. First I can't farm waves while my ADC is backing now I can't even get gold by poking while my ADC is back.

So if my adc dies or recalls, and I stay in lane I just get punished and can't get gold? This doesn't seem like the right way to fix the issues this is presenting in the top lane... This is more of an issue with the bounty system, and you're punishing supports because of top lane

Roam/try to affect another lane or focus on vision? Support doesn't really need to be in bot lane alone like that. If you're holding lane after ADC dies, last hit the wave & you're still earning gold. And they're upping the gold income. I really don't see this punishing as supp.
