thresh's hook is much, much easier to land than blitz's

i just tried him for first in ranked today

I hooked them so many times. Sadly our Graves ate too much Lux and Ez poke and Lux shield is stupid and needs nerf so couldn't really follow up on them.


I'm gonna play him more now. I still refuse to play Blitz.

It travels slower, has a wind-up time, only edges your target closer to you over 1.5 seconds AND it can't bring people to you over walls

Blitz's grab is better in every single way and you're just bad with it.

I adore Thresh and feel iffy towards Blitz...

Blitz's Hook is better in many ways. The only thing Thresh has is that you can go to them if you desire.

Mana

Range.
CC Duration.

Four reasons.

Utterly false statement. It has more functionality and a bit more range but, as a pull, Death Sentence is absolutely inferior to Rocket Grab.

I have always felt Blitz's range on his hook is slightly lower than the pre-cast outliner shows. I think this is why many people have a hard time with it.

The projectile speed of Thresh's hook is faster if I recall correctly.

Difference is it has a windup.

Same here. Hate her shield. Was so happy it was getting nerfed last PBE patch along with Diana's... Diana's got nerfed... Lux's shield wasn't nerfed.

Blitz grab is much better as a pull, thresh hook is better CC and as a initiate or pick. Thresh just is an overall better character than blitz and it makes it seem like all of his tools by themselves are better.

It has a longer windup and moves slower, but has an overall better hitbox and disables the target for longer.
