This change is a crippling nerf to supports in a time where botlane really doesnt need more hits. Changing the playstyle for supports as to always have them glued to their closest ally and heavily crippling supports that may attempt to solo defend or solo poke while their ADC is away.
Playing support is about more than just helping others, there are a lot of times where you're on your own for various reasons including a disconnect. Supporting is about being more than just a heal bot so why create a nerf to support items that enforces a playstyle of just that. And I understand that the 0CS Strat needed a fix but this is nerf will just cripple supports as much as it does top lane for no real reason.
