Why would you say Tristana? o.O
As far as I know MF and Draven are the best, standing on what ppl say and pick.
So far everyone has been saying how terrifying Thresh is. This guy is by far the worst support I have played against, every game I play against him, he does nothing. The hook is easily avoidable ~ stand behind minions (it also x10 worse than Blitz's, barely moves you in comparison), his ult box is just Veigar but with nothing to back it up, the lantern is by far the best thing this guy can offer, even then you just have to wait it out. While it was enjoyable to have him on my team playing Ashe, there are much better supports in my opinion such as Taric (IMO).
The most terrifying combo I have seen with Thresh out of all the bot ADC I have played against is MF. The chain + box with MF "cacklebullets" as previously stated is devastating, but very rarely does it happen sucessfully as he is easily avoidable. Every single one of his moves telegraphs other than his ult, and even then you know when he's going to do something, because his range is piss poor. Or am I the only one that backs away when I see an advancing champion?
Thresh is a "mind-game" champion, so he's good for preying on people who don't know better, or playing with their heads pretending you're going to get them, and so on.
Yes, if the enemy is smart, he becomes less effective, while champions like Taric just brings utility that's useful at any time.
Still, you might just have been lucky meeting bad Thresh players. He's pretty new, so people aren't completely used to him yet.
Tbh I have had more succes with him top for some reason. Could be he is not my style of suppor (or I just suck with him). Building him relatively tanky (warmog, abbysal, bullwark for example) with a nashors. Don't be super agressive, rather harass a bit and just farm farm farm and try to get a kill or assist when jungler comes. In teamfights it's all about the ridiculous CC you can bring. He must be one of the best AD protectors in the damn game.
People must learn how to click the damn lantern!
And yes, I think that he just might be in for some nerfs/bans since most of this is not really item reliant, but it's hard to say considering if you do add items into the equation I could list quite a few "bruisers" more deserving right now. I want to see some Thresh plays a few months from now by a pro who picks him up and "masters" him. It will be glorious to watch.
Behind every invincible tank and pro DPS is an OOM healer, rolling their eyes.
Exactly, and that'll probably be an insta-kill on most ADCs too ^^
Pfft, hadn't read the fine print
