    Some support love in patch 5.13

    ...unless you're foiled by a team mate so bad that you want to quit.

    One key new Feature for Conquest - Support Role Bonus XP!

    • Lowest level player on each team will receive increased shared XP
    • Shared XP means you must be near a team mate to get the bonus
    • This rule wont turn on until 2m

    Does this apply to all game modes? Such as Joust the 2 of us where it is a 2v2?

    This is just something that will be abused... Supports don't need more exp, Supports need gold... This is also going to kill the jungle role since it would just be more beneficial to share lanes...

    to be clear, Support is good as is... the ones that actually support...

    can hi-rez just hire some competent people to work on the game instead of ruining it to push Realm Royale??

    What happens if multiple people are equally low level?

    For example, an ADC/Support pair holding hands in the laning phase and thus sharing the exact same exp until the Support starts rotating?
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Hel, Janus, Jing Wei, Nike, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    If it's equal, the assist player will receive the bonus (Source).

    Not sure what what happens if it's between two non-sharing players.

    So... Sounds like it's just going to be a boost to the levels in duo lanes (With them flip-flopping between who has the buff as it counts to exact exp... So first the assist player (Support) gets exp bonus then they're inequal and whomever is lowest gets the bonus).

    Then later, a boost to the support once they start rotating and the ADC can pull ahead and the support starts to fall behind the rest of the team.

    Still... Exp isn't generally the thing that is sought after by supports, since for the most part level 5/9/12 is all that's needed (For their ult/max level CC skill/second relic) and after that it's all about trying to find gold to buy wards and items...

    I suppose it could be an interesting prospect for aggressive supports like Bacchus, Ares, Cerberus, Ymir, Kumbha and various Warriors... Who want levels so they get the damage to punch you in the jaw as their "Support"
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Hel, Janus, Jing Wei, Nike, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    Finally! It was always so annoying to fall behind in Levels as support, even if you did well.

    Might finally play guardians in conquest again, if this change goes through.

    I fear this might just add more snowball to duo lane if you can't def your buffs and if you die once. Unless it's not as much as I think it will be, the other support is just going to get so big if they out clear you or kill you once in lane.

    I could see them nerfing high clear supports later on after this change to make sure this does not happen so much. We will see I guess. I hate snowball though.
