any particular reason why Malz isn't used in high/competitive play?

is it because u can easily counter his ult? or among other things?

His ult disables himself, he also has no mobility or hard cc.

His ult stuns him AND whoever he targets.

That's probably the biggest reason.

In no order his problems are including but not limited to the following:

- Inherently pushes the lane.
- Poor mobility meaning he's easily ganked.
- Long cast time on Q.
- R is a channeled ability rendering him vulnerable during it.
- QSS means you remain channeling the damage on a tether while they can escape the suppression and eventually the damage.

He has both a silence and a suppression he has 2 hard CCs that's not his problem.

QSS does a solid job of shutting malz down. Additionally, outside of his ult, malz lacks a decent means of locking down an enemy for his W.

Lower ELO's tend to poorly manage item actives and make frequent positioning errors, thereby making malz an excellent option in less skilled play.

That being said, he hits like a truck. and his silence can massively shift a fight.

You can always cancel the channel if it's someone like Vayne who will wreck you if you stand still. (Although, she'll still wreck you if you run.)
