Been playing him and I am enjoying his playstyle, though I would say he's closer to UP than balanced.
Yes, I did say his lantern is ridiculously OP but...
TOO BAD NO ONE IN MY TEAMS EVER CLICKS THE DAMN THING.
In lane, his presence is very small. He's a ranged champ yet his auto attack range is less than Vayne/Sivir/Corki's, obviously his E can't be used to harass and his Q suffers the same problems as Blitzcrank's, except he doesn't have a move speed steroid and long knockup to solve this problem like Blitz does. The pull distance is also garbage anyway, even if you do manage to land your Q you won't pull them past their creeps.
W is very limited by the fact that it relies on your teammates rather than yourself to make the plays.
R is good but also suffers the problem of it requiring Thresh to be in the middle of the enemy team when using it aggressively. If you don't have your Q or flash up then your ulti is going to be delayed. E suffers the same problems.
I enjoy his passive however. 70+ free armor AP late game? Sure.
Tip: Help your jungler at the start, get free souls luls
