Leave his Passive, W, and E the .

Switch his Q and his ult. Blitzcrank's Q is so game changing that it makes his ult feel impotent, so just switch the two and rebalance numbers accordingly.

Boom, Blitzcrank is no longer toxic and is now in a state where he can be balanced.

Reasons:

As it is right now, Rocket Grab is the most game changing non-ultimate ability in the game, bar none. It can singlehandedly win teamfights instantly, and this feels more in line with an ultimate skill. As Blitzcrank's ultimate, he must survive until level 6 in order to get it, which allows some time in which the opposing AD and support can try to gain a lane advantage before Blitzcrank ****s all over them.

Having Blitzcrank's Static Field (or whatever it is) as his Q will also help to balance him. A decreased active effect radius would make it more in line with a normal ability, and the passive would push the lane early, giving him disadvantages early on in the laning phase.

If the change went through, Blitzcrank would have DRAWBACKS. He would not be the best support for every situation.You would have to balance the risks of Blitz's pre-6 laning with the rewards of great grabs in teamfights down the line.

Thoughts?

(New Q could be the size of an Alistar Q with around a 10 second CD, grab gets something like a 90/60/30 sec CD with a reduction to 15 sec CD for a successful grab)

Uhhhh, his q is not constant meaning you actually need to land it..... His q has a very obvious animation and sound making it very hard to land against people who know what to do. Trust me, you can flash aaway or flash over the wall when a blitz pulls you.

Solution to blitz grab?

Move to left/right whenever you see the OBVIOUS signs of him going for a pull.

He runs up with W, knocks you up with E, ults you, and then pulls you back in. No counter.

I don't agree with you OP

but anyway, I know you can dodge it; but if he grabs you AT LEAST ONCE; you're dead

I might be ok with this if the grab was turned into more of a Pudge/Devourer kind of grab.

just get rid of the knockup, getting grabbed / knocked up / aoe silenced is plenty of time (even for a lane that is losing hard) to kill a squishy champ. kick off the knockup and it is no longer an instant kill. it is just too much suppression for one champ to have.
