He has the only ranged non ultimate targetted hard CC ability in the game aside from annie stun on Q and an ult that makes picking up kills really easy in solo queue. Even if he auto loses lane his gank assist is too good.
O right, forgot about that one. It too is bulls*** and why fiddle mid keeps having a stupid high win rate despite the fact that it should be garbage.
It is garbage against competent players but only 4 people play him mid and only as a counterpick, like vs. Fizz. Otherwise you get perma shoved into turret
TF has a very high skill ceiling and a good TF can make your side laners (and even jungler) lives' hell. He's a solid split pusher in some cases and even a good team fighter if you can play around his short range. A targeted 2 second stun on such a short cooldown can be really deadly, even against tanks
Got a high diamond (want to say d2-d1 but cant remember) solo Q TF main in my low diamond flex game last season and he alone showed me how disgusting a TF player can be and the map control potential. Inspired me to play some TF but quit after a few games. Boring af imo
Also I feel like he is fine in most comps, but really excels with aggro jungler/supports. The game I played we had an Elise and I was Thresh. We basically just forced enemy jg out of the game.
Panth stun isn't ranged technically. It is one of few relatively long range targeted hard CCs though.
TF has always had disgusting solo queue potential, but barely anyone reaches that point. He's similar to Panth in a way, except you trade off early game laning and dueling for actually having a competent mid and late game (as well as the inherent benefits of being ranged). Means TF's hard to do well with if you're bad/mediocre, but TF is also way better if you do reach the point where you're good at him.
Look, i can name a few instances in MY life where i tried to reach mutual understanding and i can TELL you, always faster and easier to just kill em. Just is!
