I like going fizz and pressuring his point while keeping the lane pushed the best i can and just bursting him everytime ult is up, possibly killing him. What are the other ways?

AP Yi, and Nunu beat Heimer pretty badly.

Have you tried pole vaulting over Heimer's harassment rocket? That would basically kill much of his damage and you'd just have to deal with the pushing.

Nunu eats turrets for breakfast and heals himself for the effort. This really screws heimer over pretty badly, and lets him get close to heim and spam snowballs which heim cant heal from.

Yorick generally beats Heimer as his W/E can kill turrets decently and he has pretty high sustain. He counterpushes with his melee Q as well.

I could see AP Yi doing well as mentioned. Super high healing ability and can launch off the turrets to deal high damage.

Cassiopia is pretty competitive due to her looong range and high damage poisons to take out turrets safely and counterpush.

Heimer typically fares poorly against long range AD carries. If you can snipe his towers from a safe range, you've neutralised about 75% of his damage. Yeah, the rockets and grenades do some damage, but they're not particularly scary.

Aside from that, Nunu and AP Yi are hard counters.

Honestly most champ's beat hiemer bot. Which is why he is almost never played in higher elo's. It just a matter of out playing your opponent.

You see Yorick, Nunu, Jax, Diana a lot.
Jayce is also really strong down there, although I'd rather have him up top.

Urgot seems to have dropped out of favor after his most recent nerfs, although I suspect this is more due to people not liking him for silly reasons like his appearance more than his power.

Caitlyn is really good against him too, but the main ones to snag are AP Yi and Nunu as mentioned.

I've always done well with heim top and he's one of my fav champs, but I swear trying to queue up for a pug it is impossible. LOLHEIMDOESNTWANTTOBOT
