Hey, that lantern i threw @ you...

Click on the damn thing . I'm getting sick and tired of having teammates who get ganked and refuse to click on the lantern when i throw it out for them to get them out of danger.

Then the moron will still blame me for not saving him.

I love Thresh's lantern... but half the time when a teammate throws it at me to save me, it's too late. The Thresh throws it when I'm already running so by the time I see it, it's behind me. I could either risk getting murdered by turning around and grabbing the lantern, or keep running. I'm not saying you do that of course, but most of the time people's aim/timing with that lantern is terrible.

My favourite is when someone flashes at the same time I cast the lantern, leaving them nowhere near it and still dead.

My biggest problem with Thresh using the Lantern is that I am always super aggressive as Thresh so I can never use it to save people >_>

It would still be better for you to run at the lantern and click it. By turning around to run at it, you're making the people chasing you stop, so if you make it to the lamp they'll be even farther behind because Tresh will be waiting at maximum yank-range. The only ways to stop Thresh from making a play off it, assuming thresh is out of reach, is

1. Kill his teammate before they can reach the lamp, or

2. Stand directly on top of the lamp so his ally can't click on it.

I love how on GFaqs we have to pre-emptively post thedog.png in our own topics just so someone else doesn't get there first. A very sad state of GameFaqs indeed.

I warn you Paul. If whoever that is hears something - or even if I hear something and think he may have heard - I will kill him, or them, then you, then myself.

Yeah I got what you're saying. More times than not the issue is the idiot Thresh throws his lamp into a cluster of champions/minions, making reaching the lantern nigh-impossible. Or the enemy is using slows on me, in which case I'm probably dead either way. It definitely has great use though, just gotta know where/when to throw it. I've been saved by it several times by the right people.
