Where does he belong? Lane wise. I've seen him in every lane, but never seen him stand out much inside of his lane.

I like him in bot lane with a hard cc partner (Blitz grab followed by swain or ryze snare is just funny). He is a support of sorts, mainly in the form of cc, but he kind of moves into the melee bruiser role late game. I find he is great with the right team comp and absolutely terrible with the wrong team comp.

He works best bot, his grab/uppercut will feed his partner better than nachos.

following standard meta, he is played as a support with an ad carry, preferably one that can deal massive burst. tristana is the best ad carry to be played with blitz, vayne/graves are also good combos. graves for the burst, but vayne can condemn into a wall after blitz has pulled.

It seems that Blitzcrank works better with a team that can burst a full health bar away than a team that can only do damage over time.

In theory yeah, but in reality a team of 5 dudes can totally decimate pretty much any non-tank within 1 second, even if their damage is mostly sustained. Its pretty much impossible to make a team with all sustained damage anyways, and all champs have SOME burst.


Blitz nowdays is best as a support champ. He used to do better duolaning and getting farm as he works exceptionally well with TriForce, Manamune. But he isn't a great jungler nor top laner. He CAN WORK, but assuming equal skill levels, he will be at a disadvantage.

When strategizing, you always want to assume the enemy is just as skilled or moreso than you. You don't need strategy vs scrubs rite? :-)


So anyways, do the usual support build. 9-0-21 or 0-9-21, philo stone, heart of gold, then work towards frozen heart (usually), then aegis maybe, then upgrade the 2 GP10 items into Reverie and the shield doodad.

well, usually used to play with him as support / fighter, but a significant body thinks it as tank
it is really effective as a tank?

if you can get the item build to tank, he's a very effective one. but still better as a bruiser who happens to have a lot of CC.

but there is a possibility to use it as a support fighter, right?
pulling the opponent to the group cut him, right?
