Blitzcranks ability to pull people through solid walls.


Blitzcranks ability to pulll people through solid enviromental objects. His punch arm goes through the jungle woods walls and the outerwall of the base. It pulls you through the otherwise uncrossible walll to the blitz's desired location. Pulling someone through walls is completly unfair to the player.

Not so. Many champions have escape abilities (Kassadin's Riftwalk, Tryndamere's spinning slash,) they all go through walls. Blitzcrank's rocket punch only works if you stand still and manage to get grabbed. It's perfectly fair and legit. Your an either use one of your escapes, or just heal and run. Not cheap at all.

I'm not sure it is intended though. (The Tryndamere E ability as well.)

I understand Kassadin can teleport over a wall, but I don't think it's fair that Tryndamere and Blitzcrank get to "go through" walls.

Actually, i do believe that the designers mentioned that it was intended to go through walls. In some post long ago, it was mentioned as an escape route for Tryndamere. As for Blitz, as forementioned, going through walls ain't [that] cheap. And its really cool

Never mind that he can actually grab you while you're moving if he has a brain and that it puts your team on one side of the wall and his team on the other. It isn't so easy to "just use your escape" when it is 3v1.

Low on hp? Blitz MIA? Don't stand next to the wall, problem solved. The actual area that he can grab you from behind the wall is minimal, plus he has to leave a gap between him and his side of the wall to pull you over.
