You can't just pick Heimer without considering your opponents and teammates. (You can but well, soloq). He's amazing versus low range/low aoe/no hard engage compilations (which you are not likely to play against), he's great with high disengage/disruption/slow teammates (who isn't tho).

Despite the complete lane domination he has no escapes and he pretty much can't roam (your laner will destroy your turrets and he'll easily rape you when you'll come back). Basically just sit in lane and farm, and try killing your opponent if he goes for you. Even if I get fed as hell I feel like I'm not giving real help to my teammates :/ I feel like he's really strong but I'm not playing him well. He has a perma 52/53% winrate but I suck at him
He excells at close combat with low amount of participants. Which means that you must adjust your roaming to force 1-3 vs 1-3 situations at best.
Consider getting MS quints since he's a champion that is great to kite with but has no built in mobility.
Always pick him into Katarina just to laugh it into her face.
Nothing more specific comes to mind atm.
