1)Riot will never make a skill shot have an increasing range, they have said that before in threads long ago. It makes for some really frustrating gameplay where you were out of the range of the hook last level, but now, completely out of your knowledge, you are now inside it.

2)Playing around rocket grab makes things interesting. As long as he isn't in a non-warded brush, it adds a heightened tension to the lane phase, where you have to get ready to make snap movements quickly. Contrary to popular belief, there are several ADC's that can dodge rocket grab very easily, completely shutting down 85% of Blitzcrank's usefulness as a support.

3)Rocket Grab can be used to your own advantage. Early game with a tank like Leona or Alistar, or late game with ANY initiator, rocket grab is one of the best initiation moves in the game... for either team.

4)If his Q and R got swapped, he would never be played support again. Ever. Honestly, the only thing he would ever do is jungle, and pre-6 he would be sub-par at that. He would lose the thing that allows him to be played as a support, a ranged spell. Every single support has a ranged ability, it lets them not get curbstomped by a ranged carry or support when trying to do things. If his replacement spell was a PBAoE, he wouldn't be able to be played mid, seeing how a ranged character could just defeat him. He also couldn't go top, seeing how he would push the lane whenever he wanted to trade.


While blitz can be frustrating in solo queue (people completely outside of your control getting grabbed), there is a ban for a reason. I personally believe there is no reason to completely butcher a character so you can save a ban slot in solo queue, for a hero that can throw a game almost as easily as he can carry it.

EDIT: GG too tired, didn't even see the hella necro. Funny how Blitz just hasn't changed.

Blitz and his Q itself has probably the strongest zone potential in the game considering the fact that Blitz can just sit in the brush (skilled or unskilled) in being able to sufficiently zone out the enemies he is facing .
