hes OP at lower elo because he is easy to play and does to much damage and is to tanky, yes we will buy a whole freaking item just to counter one OP champion on the other team buying that item will cause you to lose damage. So in the end xin zhao will just out tank you because of his insane life steal. Plus you know how much armor penetration xin zhao has? Plus most of these items you are talking about getting to counter him later in the game. By that time he will be to fed and any armor you bought will be useless.

Zin Zhaou was recently buffed to bring him up to par with the current selection of champions. He was one of the originals and was outclassed in every way. But now he's actually a viable pick again. He is still fairly squishy so no, he's not OP.

Jax will dodge his combo then stun + deal heavy damage then lunge when Xin runs
Teemo will harass and then blind and run when Xin lunges
Warwick will just out sustain/damage
Yorick will just sit back and damage him
Lee Sin can combo and use his own escape easily
Olaf will out-damage him all game
Kennen will just zoom out if he tries to gap-close

Those are just off the top of my head.

You don't even need to beat him top lane. Just keep an even score and he falls off mid-late.

Fiora? really -_-

many noobish people play this game very timid...they always try to run away when they are attacked...so they think champs that can catch them are op...like xin and yi...they dont even udnerstand that if they fight instead of run they will see the champ isnt op, thats like something they never try to do

best way to nerf it is make it so his passive is his only way to get life steal (meaning he CANT get life steal from items)

Okay. I will attempt to use logic here:

Xin Zhao is an amazing duelist. That means that if you go one-on-one, especially at early levels, in his face, you will likely die. He also has a gap closer, so if you choose to attack him from range, make sure to have a stun or escape tool ready.

That being said, he's melee. Abuse that. He's also either fragile, or if he builds tanky/bruiser, able to succumb to higher damage. Both in different ways.

His knockup and knockback ulti makes him an amazing initiator. But Wukong, Amumu, and others are also good initiators. In team fights, be ready to counter-initiate, and focus him likely.

He's a strong champion, but his kit includes gap-closing, high damage, and initiation. About it. No stuns, no slows (Frozen Mallet maybe or Phage or whatever), etc.

If he is top lane, poke at him, and try to do it better than he does you. If bot, abuse your range, DO NOT FACE CHECK BUSHES, and whittle him down. Hide behind minions so that he can't easily charge you.

He's strong, but there are plenty of ways to deal with him.

Were you aware that AP Xin Zhao also exists? He gets craptons of health regen. But at the cost of damage. More tanky and "lolzy". But also manageable.

I find Xin strong in early-mid game whether laning or jungling but by late game as has been mentioned, a frozen heart or randuin active and you might as well just recall
