It's not surprising to me that Garren was never chosen in the LCS. Garren offers nearly nothing to a team outside of an occasional silence and a fairly strong ult on a long C/D

As for Blitz, a more experienced player will rarely get hooked when it doesn't come from fog of war and there isn't prior CC involved. When Blitz can't land a hook, he offers too little to be an effective pick (not to say he can't be effective, just that he is situational)

I know that Giants Gaming ran Garren top, EG ran Malz jungle, Gambit ran Rengar top, Blitz was chosen as a Top lane for one team and Jungle GP for another team in EU.

I've seen Panth, Blitz and Malzahar being used in the LCS and they worked quite well. In fact, Blitz was the dang MVP in the fnatic game.

Some of those champions are amazing for solo queue players, like Shaco or to a lesser extent Garen. In a 5v5 with better communication and teamwork, they have no chance.

As for Blitz, I never really understood why no one ever plays him in LCS.
Yeah it's not that hard to dodge but one grab can win a game.

He is frequently banned in the European LCS. However, in the North American LCS he was never picked or banned.

However, this could just be differences in the local meta. Diana and Caitlyn were both rarities in EU LCS, while they made frequent appearances in NA LCS. Meanwhile, Kassadin and Blitzcrank show up in Europe to no small amount of success and yet they have 0 presence in the NA games.

Skarner offers a lot for the team with his ult grab and constant slow in a team fight. I would rework his E though because i find the damage, heal, and range extremely small and mostly useless.

What happened to Morde that made him fall so far off the charts?

I know that spell vamp nerfs hurt, but were they really that bad? Or is it something else?
