Is Bard better when played alongside Thresh?

By locking into the same side as Bard, he lowers their win rate by -18.7% to 31.0%. This signals that there is a very bad synergy between Bard and Thresh that results in them performing not as well together than without each other.

Thresh has a lower difficulty than Bard. That means Bard players don't need to be careful when arranging Thresh comrades to fight alongside, as they will require a lower level of skill to do well with you.
