Xin Zhao has always been my favourite champion because of his aggressive playstyle, strong early game, and balance between a tanky dps and an assassin
Despite how much he has been nerfed and how much everyone QQs about him, I find I have been doing quite well with him, with a 70% win rate in ranked, carrying myself up to 1530 elo
The biggest change that hit him was the nerf to his ult:
minus 50 flat damage
minus 10% hp
this nerfed his burst damage by a lot and now, many other champions, especially solo top, do as much or more damage than him at level 6
irelia, renekton, garen, wukong and riven are just a few
Xin's burst has always been his advantage over other champions, at the cost of reliable cc and an escape, but now that his burst has been nerfed, he is outclassed by almost all solo tops
He is a wukong without any escapes
What I would like for a change is either his ult numbers to be increased again to make up for his lack of escape, or for his E charge to be able to be used on his own minions, as I constantly find that xin has no way of surviving a well coordinated gank in lane without using flash, even with warding
I would really appreciate some input from riot to know their future plans with xin
*I've made this thread before, but received minimal response
What I'm really looking for is to know if riot is planning anything for xin, are you guys going to scale his E on AD, improve his ult, or implement the change I suggested above?
even if you're not going to change him, let me know so I can stop hoping in each new patch :/

He needs scaling on his ult.

Something like garen where they made judgement increase from crit strike, but maybe for attack speed so xin can actually benefit from that more.

I think Xin Zhao isn't that sux, his ganks as a jungle is really good. I feel like you will need a precise decision making before u atk someone... :O

xin needs some scaling and his e to be physical, then we have ourselves a viable pick again!
