Therefore a blitz will have to take lower probability shots literally aiming a bit to one side. The idea is to hope that they juke the shot and wind up getting grabbed.
Even a more advanced blitz player will not grab where they are but where they appear to be going, or where the blitz suspects they will go before they even go. This can easily make the blitz look like a fool when the enemy stops or goes a different direction.
So a good blitz player have to feel out his enemies and determine how good they are at dodging and anticipating and vs good players will have to take low-probability shots since they are free to spam grabs and landing a 20% one can make a big play.
Conclusion: Give your blitz player a break...they may be better than you think but are on the 'wrong level' so to speak.
A problem I often have with Blitz/Nid/any skillshot champ is when playing against extremely bad people. They will not react the way they are "supposed" to. Most competent players will attempt to maneuver as soon as they hear the skillshot sound or see the animation. Bad players just stand there, or run away from the skillshot. So if I'm aiming for a 50% chance to hit against a good player who will instinctively dodge, I will miss a crappy player every time.
Of course once I identify the "bad" player it gets fun.
