If you are in gold/plat people should know by now to click the latern and use it, if they aren.t then it is because you are throwing them poorly. The big advantage with thresh isthat you can pull enemies and teamates alike around the battlefield, and a coordinated team bot can wreck. he isn't as good in solo because of this, but even if you and your teamate aren't in the same mindset and don't pull off the clutch lantern plays, he is still just a better version on blitzcrank.

I'd prefer blitz any day, which is why I (and most people) ban blitz over thresh.

He's definitely viable and have seen him in the high elo streams. He's also a very unlikely candidate to see a ban, and offers a respectable lane presence.

I play him in diamond, and trust me, there are quite a lot of thresh bans.

Note that lanterns can actually be blocked by having things on top of them, as I discovered one time when there was an enemy Trundle with his tower hiding the lantern and preventing anyone from using the lantern to dash away.

Not that anyone plays Trundle, but I have to assume there might be other ways of blocking it. J4's ult might be big enough to do that, for example.

If I had to decide between the two, blitz's pull gives him more lane presence then thresh's with that windup.

Of course, a good pull can turn 5v5 into 4v5 instantly.

I definitely respect the thresh tho, that ult is meaner than most people realize, and the ranged harass and armor/mag res scaling aren't something to scoff at either.

You'd be amazed by how much people don't know in gold/plat.
