So:
Unce uppon the time, I tried Heimerdinger in cutstom game (something like 3 weeks before). He was a bloody fun, altough i never tryed him in a real game. But:
1) All mys friends think he is horribly UP
2) It seems 90% of the community think he is horribly UP

So? Is he worth buying?

He doesnt have amazing burst be he actually can be devastating in a team fight if the enemies choose to ignore your turrets and go for the kills. You just have to remember that you have to quickly plant your turrets, unleash the skill combo and quickly run away as far as possible cause if they get you your turrets go down. The turrets can actually deal loads of dmg if ignored. But if they want to destroy them they have to waste the precious seconds.

He's quite good but gets weak lategame ;/

PS. Just because you're bad in a 1v1 situation doesnt mean the champ is bad.

Depends on the team..he's best suited for a solo lane, not mid since he isnt the best ganker. but if you can get a solo lane and get farmed, you have nice AOE burst and those turrets rock ^^

if you face ANY burst or assasin in enemy team, you are walking minion and free gold.
Otherwise he can do some nice things, but he is highly team dependant. I had games 10+kills/2deaths and games 2/10+deaths. He should have tag "not carry" coz he can't do anything alone without good team.

He's not worth buying, he was viable when he had 3 turrets, fairly balanced then.. his missiles just needed a damage nerf. Now he is useless you can't do a thing with only 2 turrets and if u try to push as heimer u will just be ganked + die no matter how good you are. Most games are decided by a teams ability to kill... ie. team fights and who wins them. This is why decides mostly how good a character is.. notice how anivia is considered OP by some of the community, and she dishes out huge damage, heimer is considered UP and he's next to useless in team fights... Pushing solo lanes just isn't a viable tactic most the time unless you're vs noobs, people will just recall + def.

well, most people are just rather dumb, they think most kills = op champion and less kills = up

obviously that incredibly dumb =P

akali runing around with 18kills and hasent atked a single tower is kinda frustrating.

thats why u play heim and down 1-2 towers in less then 15min, that makes the enemy team rage internally, and then they just crumble.

edit* enemy cant push into ur base if u push every fricking lane all the time, stressing them out

And do you really think that the enemy team will LET you down 1-2 towers in less than 15 mins?... what teams have u played against? o.o No matter how bad a player is they surely know that they need to keep their turrets, and will probably atleast attempt to defend...
