While I agree that Zed needs something, the post you quoted makes alot of direct comparisons of abilities without taking into account the rest of the champions. For example, Vi is apparently identical to Zed except better. One is an assassin, one is a bruiser. That much should be obvious but not to this guy. Also there are some iffy facts in there, like how no pro player has tried Zed. Westrice plays him quite often these days, I believe, and Zed made an appearance in a tournament match some time ago. The post also mentions pros not making him their "main", which in itself is a flawed concept. Can't upvote.

The only problem I have with this post is that it sounds like you're just trying to get rid of all of Zed's weaknesses. Champions SHOULD have weaknesses. Zed needs to have one aspect about him changed in order to give him a solid place, he doesn't need all his weaknesses removed.

For instance, a good change would be to make him more energy efficient. How about refunding all energy if you kill someone with your ult? That one change would be good.

Zed's late game is weak, yes. That isn't a bad thing. Champions should have trade-offs like this. In this case, Zed trades a weak late game for his amazing early-mid game. His high mobility and decent burst makes SR his b*tch during early-mid game.

what

amazing early game? what? Your energy problems dont get fixed until mid/lategame. Your ult doesn't deal 50% of your damage until it is maxed out.


Zed is our first late-game assasin, Your only option is CC him or die, he serves as a very nice clean up crew. The problem is however, zed has no hard CC, so counter play versus him is veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery easy.


his W gives him access the highest AD and allows him to scale off of AD, its like an AD rabadons.

yes, early-mid game is where he is strongest. do you even Zed bro? his harass is remarkable, his farming is ridiculously easy, and his pushing power is top tier. ganking with him is very easy once you get your ult. its basically a free kill every time it's up, because you should already be CS fed, and you should probably have a couple kills on top of that.

not to mention, your energy isn't a big problem because you should only be using it to poke. I'm not sure where you get this idea that Zed's energy problems get "fixed", late game is when your energy is really the problem because you can't contribute too much to a team fight.

If you don't play to your strengths early game, you're going to have a ****ty late game. Any amount of armor will greatly reduce your opening burst, and BC is only going to help with that if you're AA'ing them constantly, which you don't get much opportunity to do in team fights
