Blitzcrank was an awesome hero. He had snares, stuns and silences. He had great farming ability's and tower killing potentail. Unfortunatly this was all before the last two patches. Now I have yet to see Blitzcrank used at all! These are the latest nerfs to him -

In order to bring Blitzcrank back to his former glory without making him extreme imba, Riot needs to -

Stats - Can stay

Rocket Grab - Bring the projectile speed back to normal. Put the mana cost back to normal (or lower it slightly) or instead of mana cost put the ability ratio from .8 to 1

Over Drive - Bring Cooldown back to 20 seconds.

Power Fist - Not sure if this needs to stay the same or not... Havent seen Blitz enough to be able to decide.

Static Feild - Lower cooldown to 45 or 50.

With these changes we can save Blitzcrank from becoming an extinct hero. Agree/Dissagree with my buff ideas?

No.

I've seen him a few times since the patch. While he certainly isn't the monster he used to be, he can still pack a pretty damn good punch and has a lot of utility rolled into a single platform, which is where most of his strength lies.

Agreed. And he's harder to kill with the improvement to his mana barrier.

i disagree with your buffs. I agree he needs to be buffed.

Increase his range further + to make him as fun as the original pudge of dota was, increase the projectile speed, lower the mana cost, all of rocket grab and we won't cry no more .

I think he got a nice boon with trinity-force item. It works very well with his rocket fist!

Any good player can still rape with Blitz no problem, he doesnt need any buffs.
