But, why would it be closed if the majority agrees with it? :S

I saw this earlier today, and thought it would suffice for a bump.

How is it going to be locked if the majority agrees with its contents?

Not necessarily, It might also mean that the champions mechanics are particularly attractive to that player and seem to do well with them.


But watch any of those games and you'll see that the average KDA ratio of Zed is rather Neutral or negative.

For example, the quarter finals saw Zed, He didn't really give much to the team, by the time his ulti went off each time, there were various instances that the target died from AoE damage or from another damage dealer before it went off, henceforth the ulti was useless in those instances.

One might argue that the ulti would have been useful IF the target juuust managed to survive and the ulti goes off.

Sure, but what is toxic and contradictory to his ulti, is that it is either useless or useful.

Not useful in any instance, only if it goes off and kills the target, which should be easy and better applicable if Zed is roaming for a gank, but in team fights its rather 50-50.

TL;DR Zed does not contribute much to late game teamfights.


Watch any tournie vid if you don't believe me, its all there.

Seriously just because pros pick it, doesn't mean the champ is necessarily balanced, it just means that they prefer their mechanic.

For instance Zed has very good farming, henceforth last hitting is very easy with him, there is also ranged poke for beginning game, and decent escape if it wasnt used.

But what happens when you put him in a late-game team fight?

Assuming that in tournies, pro players should always be at their top game.

Pure and simple play logic renders Zed useless.


DONT FORGET; this is the first tournie that Zed saw, I honestly believe after Zed's team lost the quarter finals, he won't be seen again in tournie at his current state.



Did I forget to mention, that Cleanse and oranges remove his ulti debuff?
