Vapora Dark says “The crank is either a god or a feeder, he excels at fighting champions without mobility and can force a positional mistake to be a death even as early as level 2. Stay behind your creeps at all times so he cant easily hook you, ask your support to play a lot more forward so that if he runs at you they can take the hit allowing you to deal damage to their the ADC or blitz himself. Play it safe and keep the bush he sits in lit up with wards and traps. Midgame, be wary of walking up to kill towers/harass people as his W + tier 2 boots if a lot of movement speed that most champions without a dash/blink cant deal with.”
Bungo_T_Baggins says “Being immobile makes it really easy for Blitz to find angles on you when you're being pushed in. Blitz paired with a more powerful lane bully (most mages, Caitlyn, Ashe) can be very dangerous for Aphelios.”
EzVeryReal says “Blitz is kind of annoying but you can deal with him. He'll be holding ult or E for your ult so just keep that in mind. Otherwise, you should be okay, especially with an engage support.”
nraxxr says “Blitzcrank is a very tough champion to play against for lower elo players who are of the mentality that if you get hooked you die. While that might be true in late game, in laning he isn't really that bad. He applies lots of pressure when stepping forward, but if you position minions in between you and him you should be fine. ”
KoZee says “Blitz is really hard to deal with, due to the fact that if he lands his hook you are most likely dead. You are also immobile, so it can be hard to get used to sidestepping it. However, once you manage to learn to sidestep it, he becomes a lot easier to deal with due to the fact of him being very weak while it's on its long cooldown.”
JCgo22 says “Blitz is an extremely oppressive laner who relies heavily on hitting his Q. It can be downright impossible to lane into Blitz if you have give the enemy team tempo with early kills or they have frozen the lane. Try to avoid that and farm safely with your support by freezing the wave near your tower and only going in when Blitz has wasted his hook. You can also use the movement speed from your E to dodge and reposition away from Blitz Q.”
SparkyRocket says “(The bot players)
Sometimes the ally bots can bodyblock you or help the enemy bots by proc-ing their Grasp of undying and their secondary runes. Also the amount of CS you can lose to these things is a big pain.”
kingamazin says “Always play in your minion wave and respect his hook. If you ever get hooked in lane you are almost guaranteed to die, so try to make sure you always have a wave to hide behind. Do not trust in your own ability to dodge his hook as just one hook hitting you can lead to your death. If you feel uncomfortable playing against blitzcrank, I would recommend building Galeforce to dash away from his hook. Just remember, always hide behind your minions so he can't hook you.”
JackM says “ blitzcrank is either a god or a feeder, he excels at fighting champions without mobility and can force a positional mistake to be a death even as early as level 2.

Ineffabilem says “Stay behind minions, if you get caught in his Q, you will probably die. If you have a tanky support, make sure he is the one getting grabbed and damaged. After his combo, blitz doesnt do anything.”
EvoNinja7 says “Blitzcrank can be a pretty annoying problem for you. He's a hook champion, which means he can engage you from a distance. You can easily avoid this by hiding behind minions. The only problem is that he can run towards with his W and then grab you, so hold onto your flash. The only thing with blitzcrank is his Q, since after that he has his knock up and that's really it. He relies a lot on his ADC to do damage, so try to focus the enemy ADC.”
SkittleBtw says “Shouldn't really be an issue at all, just Tumble (Q) his hook (Q) if you're not confident in sidestepping it. Once his hook is down, he has no pressure in lane, ping your support to bop him on the head until he sits on the naughty step back at base.”
MunixEclipse says “When fighting a hook champion, you need to use your clone well. Against Thresh or Nautilus you can use your clone to block the hook, but with blitz you need to use your clone for invis and ms to run from it.”
INS Phillo says “You have no dashes or spellshields, stand behind minions or get yourself a Morg ;)
His strength depends on the player and his movement, keep an eye of your minion wave and dont get catched by his chunky arm.”
Jovy says “Blitz is super annoying to deal with because 1) you're immobile (bar Flash), meaning hooks are deadly to you and 2) His Q, E and ult all interrupt your ult. He is squishy-ish though which is nice.”
Nekostn says “As long as you stay behind your minions, hook supports shouldn't be able to catch you out. If you can predict that you're going to get hooked, you can place a Crescendum Sentry directly in front of you, leaving it to get hooked instead of you. This method works for any hook ability except Leona.”
EvoNinja7 says “Since you have really low mobility and he has decently high base AD, Blitz will absolutely annihilate you in the early game. Play really safe when laning against him since he synergises well with every ADC, which will result in your death almost 90% of the time.”
xIntangible says “All hooks are a problem, but mainly blitzcrank and thresh as blitz will silence you so you cant ult or e away from him and dodge his hook, he can confirm a kill on you and is very big problem early which is bad as kaisa just wants to scale till 3 items.”
TwentyOneShadows says “Standing behind minions will be the best option here, blitzcrank literally denies you to do anything else than farming (anyway most of Blitzcrank players are pure trolls and they hardly ever hit their Q).”
LupinTheCat says “This is already your support half of the games, wdym this is a threat?
To counter blitz, go behind minions and think about his hook timers, usually back after 14 seconds of last hook, just on his behaviour you can see if he has it up”
Reddish Red says “Blitzcrank is unable to keep up to you and only has his E and Q in the early game to stop you from engaging on the support. The Q is a skillshot that is easy to dodge or to bait out before engagement. ”
mrPERISH says “Blitzcrank Hook = Death. He also has 3 abilities that interrupt your ultimate so keep that in mind when fighting with him near. Ward your lane bushes and don't be afraid to Make It Rain on the bushes to be sure he's not there when you return to lane. ”
Eccentricks says “This guy is really damn scary if aren't careful. If you have a Morgana supp, you won't need to worry too much, but otherwise, position yourself flawlessly, because you have no escape besides flash.
Hook champs in general are pretty bad, but Blitz is the worst right now.”
go4sp33d says “His hook and high health due to his passive make him a threat to any squishy target like TF. However, if you can dodge his hooks and stay behind the minions, you can pokehim down using blue cards and yellow cards/Q combinations. ”
finalninja says “Can't deal with the incredible cc that this champ can dish out. He is also tanky and is hard to burst due to his passive. Avoid at all costs. If you match against a blitz, just play safe until lane phase is over, or wait for your jungler. Try not to go for Dark harvest procs, it can easily bait you. ”
PoroKamiSama says “Blitz is always scary to Sona with his insta hook and burst. I consider this a 'skill match up'. So as long as you wait for him to waste his hook and hide behind minions you should be fine. He is ranked highly more due to his potential to cause harm, but with some safe play you will thrive.”
Barni1791 says “You can win lanes against almost any champion, but Blitz can really give you a hard time. I recommend to ban him, or dodge his arm with E/ Kai sa majdnem mindenki ellen tud nyerni, de Blitz tönkre tudja tenni a napját. Szerintem bannold, vagy E-vel kerüld ki a kezét!”
Ryl Storm says “Considering that Jhin's only defensive abilities are normally his summoner spells, champions like blitzcrank or leona that have lots of crowd control and opportunity creating for damage or kills are a big threat for Jhin. ”
ELMallekZarzor says “Position behind minions to avoid getting hit by [Q] Grab.Huge roamer, so vision control is key to prevent him from snowballing early.Strong invade potential at lvl 1! Stay grouped.Q has a high CD and costs 100 mana. He can't use it too often! Bait it then trade.If he uses W, he actually slows down after 5 secs. So you can lock him down when chasing.His pick power loses value if your team groups up often--it's hard for him to grab a priority target if there are tanks in the front.He’s not very useful in fights where his team isn’t the one engaging. Try to fight on your own terms.
purrpledrank says “Blitzcrank is all about abusing positioning, meaning you HAVE to be pretty consistent at axe placement or you get picked anytime he lands a grab. Try to play around his grab since it has such a long cooldown. ”
Darkkin says “Desvie do Q dele e então use o seu E para retirar uma parte da velocidade de movimento dele alem do nerf que ele leva sempre que usar o W, aproveite a chance e avance em cima dele o maximo que você puder em 14 segundos.
Divert from his Q and then use your E to take some of his movement speed apart from the nerf he takes whenever he uses W, take the chance and advance over him as much as you can in 14 seconds.”
