I feel like we have another Volibear on our hands; People overreacting to things until the champ gets nerfed and falls into obscurity for a long time.
The lantern is pretty stupid, though.
Yeah I hope Riot has learned their lesson. Though I think they have what with Kha'zix taking so long to get a nerf despite all the QQ and not being nerfed again last patch despite ongoing QQ. I guess there are too many champs people ***** about these days. --- ?

Thresh is by far my favorite champion - however, there are definitely flaws about him.
His Q is certainly difficult to land, more so than a skillshot from any other support. His early game passive on his Q is slightly overpowered - but it drops off quickly.
His lantern takes a moment or two to get out there, and if your teammate actually needs it (i.e. 5 man bush gank, etc.), it either takes a great deal of communication or dumb luck. You have no idea how many ADCs I've supported that start their jukes or run away from my range during when I throw the lantern. Most of the time, they are either dead by the time I get the lantern to them, or they've committed to getting away on their own skills.
As for his E - it's range is horrible. Flat out - sometimes I'll grab someone with Q, and one misclick or a flash and they're out of range. It's damage is awful, and it's only saving feature is the large slow. I'm not saying its a horrible skill, rather, I find it a good complement to the rest of his kit.
The Box gets kills. That's it. Its clutch, and gives him some damage in combination with his passive. Same with his passive, its baller. Both of these skills are great, and really present Thresh as a strong support.
Thresh has a high skill cap - but a bad Thresh is laughable. I'm not too great of a player, but I've played him enough to get by. He is unique, and quite a strong pick for talented teams.
