I use to play Xin a lot, but now I just can't win as him anymore when he use to be my go to lock-in to win pick.
His winrate use to be 53% at one point, iirc, and he use to have a high banrate too.

Now it seems that Xin Zhao loses duels to many other junglers like Warwick, Rammus, Udyr, Jarvin IV, Rengar, and even loses to Aatrox despite the fact that Xin has a reputation of being one of the strongest duelists in the game.

And if anyone survives Xin's initial EQW combo, they can just walk away from him and escape the gank.
Also, Xin Zhao is squishy without his ult, and gets blown up quickly during ganks. If you do use ur ult during a gank then you actually end up saving the enemy that you are trying to kill.

If you're losing duels to warrick/rammus and Jarvan early then you need to uninstall.

A champion that is so simplistic, easy to play and lacking in counterplay shouldn't be top tier.

It takes more time to get Feral Flare now than it use to, but even once you get Feral Flare as Xin, the item simply doesn't give Xin enough damage to be effective. Spirit of the Elderlizard works much better on Xin.

Warwick can out sustain and out dps Xin if he survives the initial combo, (which he should because warwick usually has tankish runes and masteries) , Rammus excels against autoattack bases champions, and J4 is about even with Xin.

He's a melee champion that does his entire combo using autoattacks. What more counterplay does he need than that?

Teemo's blind, Quinn's blind, thornmail, frozen heart + no escapes
