I'm curious who the community sees as the bigger threat.

If you have to pick one and can only pick one to ban (assuming the enemy team will take whichever you don't choose) who would it be?

At the moment, definitely Blitz. As the weeks go by, this might switch to Thresh as people learn how to use him/work with him.

Blitzcrank lands one clutch pull over a wall and wins the game. Thresh can't pull over walls at all. This is easy.

Blitzcrank pulls your team into annilhilation.

Thresh pulls his team into your team, or his team out of your team.

Either way, Blitzcrank is the one killing me out of nowhere while Thresh is only making plays, so Blitzcrank.

Assuming I'm bot, I'd ban Thresh. I rarely get grabbed by Blitz because I either stand behind my minions, stand where I can easily run behind my minions, or I just bait out his hook and do whatever I want for ~15 seconds.

Thresh, however, could always just jump to a minion, which would get him close enough for him to use Flay and The Box.

Oh and if I'm not bot, then I'd probably ban Blitz just because no one else seems to know how to play against him.

Thresh. Blitz is a one trick pony, (although, he only needs one trick) and can be played against successfully as long as your carry is cautious.

Thresh on the other hand can pull the tanks to your team, pull the carries out, has an amazing slow, and has a half blitz/half amumu hook.

Wait what? Thresh can't jump to a minion, he can only make his teammates jump to him.

Blitz can pull through walls, makes him better later on when one mistake is all it takes to destroy a team.

Thresh is better in lane though.

i am a good thresh player and there are quite a few walls u can pull over...but it involves your Q then E...

Thresh is a much bigger threat than blitz and i am very happy he is not banned.

He can Q a minion then Q-jump to it. He still got where he wanted to go: right near you.
