I'm willing to wager this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but really Riot? Now he can attempt a pull grand total of 2 times in lane before he's completely spent (and on that second attempt, he won't even have enough left over to use his E).

I realize that the community is having a fit because his grab just travels "too darn fast" for people to dodge, but this is nearly to the point of putting the poor guy into the ground. Heck, at this rate, you may as well just swap his Q and his R, since the frequency at which he'll be able to hook is on par with most champion's ultimates.

He needs nerfs of some sort, but not of the nature they are going through with them.

I would actually support a Q and R swap (with appropriate adjustments) since Q is 1) Blitzcrank's defining ability and 2) the most important part of his kit. However, this would make support Blitzcrank next to worthless pre-6, yet solo lane Blitzcrank potentially viable.

better hit one of the two, then. Besides, Blitz's pull is a DotA-style over-the-top ability and deserves a DotA-style manacost (well, it deserves not to exist, frankly, but...)

Really? Given that the most dominant supports in the meta right now are Lulu and Taric, I really don't think Blitzcrank is the one that needs nerfed.

Yes, I get that people don't appreciate that "1 pull can be the difference between victory and defeat", but that binary nature goes both ways. Not to mention the ability to predict and dodge hooks is chock full of that "counterplay" stuff Rioters are always on about.

That cuz blitz is permaban. Honestly blitz hook should not go trough walls or should have charge time (like varus Q) .Blitz not hard to beat in lane - but mid late game his hooks are way too game changing for how spammable they are from behind walls and bushes

Blitz is supposed to be punished for missing grabs, not making them.
