He can be played, heck I play him in ranked. The problem lies in how easy he is to counter. It's not a matter of X>Y>Z, to render heimer basically useless you just target his turrets and wait for him to use his grenade and rockets. for the next 6 seconds he is vulnerable. Also if has used his flash he has no escape if someone decides to gank him.
if we was good as he was right now I'd think he would get more play.
