1. Stop standing in front of the minions, stand behind them so rocket grab hits the minions and not them.

2. Stop running in straight lines when you know he's going to Rocket Grab you, it doesn't take that much effort to move erratically and throw him off.

Exactly. You can only stand in 1 place, and 1 place only; that is, diametrically opposing Blitzcrank around your minions. There's no way Blitz could abuse this, ever.

If you move erratically he just overdrives and powerfists you, since you're covering around 2/3 of the distance you'd be moving if moving in a straight line.

but how do u do when he uses his speed boost and goes behind your minions to knock u up ? his carry follows and burst u down ?

easier said than done, u cannot dodge all grabs, especially if it's a good blitz.

I sometimes play blitz and I'm not the best player ... and so I miss quite some grabs, but when I succeed, if the target is squishy .. it hurts a lot.

If it were to be that easy every game, then Blitz would never be played. Yes standing behind minions is great, but their AD can clear the minion wave, Blitz can simply reposition himself to zone you from farming, and Blitz can position himself that makes the enemy AD/Support to be more susceptible to ganks. Also, there comes a point in the game where running in a zig zag doesn't help as he can just chase you down with overdrive and knock you up without the grab even being a factor. No, I don't cry about Blitz and I tend to do well against him, but any Blitz worth his salt is aware of his weaknesses and do his best to work around any counter play.

I thought the OP was just going to be a picture of Alistar.

how about put your support in front
if blitz tries to overdrive punch ur carry, then your support should be doing the same to the enemy carry

also if blitz grabs the support, enemy should win the 2v2 engage, too bad people are so scared they dont commit when blitz wastes cc on the support
