What are your thoughts on Thresh?

Here is an article arguing that he is OP: http://www.examiner.com/article/why-thresh-is-op

Do you agree that he needs a nerf? Or do you disagree and think he is balanced?

This guy is just winning cause he always get killed because of Thresh. He is not OP.

First, he do not gain MR per level, so burst mage have a easier time killing him unlike other tank.

Second, he suffer from something I like to call the " Nasus syndrome", meaning he need to "farm" soul to be usefull. If he's agaisnt champion with long-range that can keep him zoned out like Caitlyn, he might need to waste Dark Passage to safely collect souls, which can leave him OOM very quickly.

Third, he's cooldown reliant. All his skill have a high CD and once has used them all, he's vunerable. And even thought his AA can deal high damage, he got low AS and it doesn't increase at all.

Fourth, Death Sentence is more like Dredge Line then Rocket Grab. In no way, it completely drag his target toward him so he got to activate it again to get in range and use Flay to knock it toward is allies. And, if the enemy team is quick enough, they can land a stun on him and quickly kill him.

Fifth, GET TENACITY AGAISNT HIM! Seriously. Every time I played Thresh, none of my enemy builded tenacity item and they say that my grab is OP. Sometime I wonder if they know how to play LoL at all.

And regarding what he said about comparing support-tank champion defense scalling. He forgot that they got an ability that temporary give them armor and MR, so it make this argument invalide.
Thanks to TinyStar for making me this awesome sig

That's a really biased article that ignores several relevent facts. In the comments he says Blitz hook pulling through walls is a glitch.

He also doesn't even mention Thresh's actually OP skill which is his E.

He's OP, his lantern is too good. I hate when he goes all in, and then bam, his ad carry escapes on 100 hp or suddenly their jungle shows up from tower. It needs range nerf, maybe others too.

Like Blitzcrank, he is just an annoying as hell support. Though if you ask me he's easier to fight than Blitz.

Thresh's OPness is reliant entirely on if his team knows how to use him. At least in my experience. If he is on his toes, and his teammates are on their toes and know what to expect from him, he can completely set the pace of a match and mold teamfights to his advantage. If his teammates dont know how to work with him and use his supreme utility kit, hes trash.

Gave me a good laugh :)

Especially the part where you said his passive is OP because it's like Grave's except throughout the whole game and up all the time.

i actually read the article and id have to say the guy that wrote it is an idiot for writing a butthurt biased article, and if he isnt butt hurt then he is just an idiot for forgetting to write about how Death Sentence is only every 10 seconds

and he is good but not op at all, i never had a real problem with him and having one on my team was sorta just "oh look its a thresh" not "YAY WE WIN WE GOT THRESH"
