: Riot please revert the Rakan changes immediately the entire community of Rakan mains is begging you
Yea well remember how that champion named zed has been trash for a long ass time now rip i guess even with the entire community unhappy about something it doesnt matter however the difference being the nerfs to rakan are justified

I really liked the Syndra story and lore updates but i wish we could've gotten more Zed lore. The Nocturne lore was good too.

Hey meddler, thoughts on Zed
  Rioter Comments
: Easily abusable in lane, tons of built in counterplay; stopwatch, zhonyas, GA all make his teamfight usless; must hit atleast 2-3 shurikens in most casses to kill. The list goes on, If you can't deal with zed it does not mean zed's op, it probably means there's basic aspects like lanning and positioning is which you're lacking.
Do you stream i would love to watch

If you want to talk about the rest of the item instead of the procs its _still_ average. Even as a 1:1, 55+18 = 73 "AD"; For a scaling item, thats pretty okay. 2900g is also very average, and items with more raw power are up to 3400g. 273 from Duskblade versus 280 from a Shiv crit. 273 from Duskblade versus 140 from RFC. The Trinity force user would need a base AD of 125 (which, only 27 champions in the entire game has and that's at level 18 and even then only half of them actually buys Trinity Force) if it's supposed to be better than Duskblade. 273 from Duskblade versus 109 from Luden's Echo (assuming Luden's Echo is the only AP item the user has at this point). I'll give you Titanic Hydra. The user only needs 1940 maximum health in order for it to be better than Duskblade and that's usually just gained through base health alone. The Ravenous Hydra user would need 194 AD in addition to the AD already provided by Ravenous Hydra if it's supposed to be better than Duskblade. 273 from Duskblade versus 100 (200 if the attack crits) from Dead Man's Plate. 273 from Duskblade versus 277 from Hextech Gunblade (assuming Hextech Gunblade is the only AP item the user has at this point). 273 from Duskblade versus 280.5 (assuming the dash and all the bolts hit the same target) from Hextech Protobelt (assuming Hextech Protobelt is the only AP item the user has at this point). 273 from Duskblade versus 215 from Hextech GLP-800 (assuming Hextech GLP-800 is the only AP item the user has). It's average, I agree, but it does bump it up quite a bit. Out of all the items, only 4 beat it by themselves. If removing it from the game isn't an option, I'd balance it like this: Duskblade of Draktharr. Cost: 2700 gold. AD: 50. Lethality: 15. Cooldown Reduction: 10%. UNIQUE PASSIVE – NIGHTSTALKER: After being unseen for at least 1 second, your next basic attack against an enemy champion deals 25 - 250 (based on level) bonus on-hit physical damage and slows by 75% for 1 second. The enhanced attack lasts 5 seconds after being seen by an enemy champion. 1. AD reduced to 50 from 55. 2. Lethality decreased to 15 from 18. 3. Nightstalker damage changed to 25 - 250 (based on level) from 30 - 200 (based on level). 4. Slow percentage decreased to 75% from 99%. 4. Slow duration increased to 0.5 seconds from 0.25 seconds. 5. Blackout passive: Removed. 5. Gold cost decreased to 2700 gold from 2900 gold. Basically, less damage early on so you don't get 100-0 once the enemy has Duskblade and you get snowballed on, little bit less armor pen so squishies can actually buy armor that matters and removing the free Sweeping Lens (Duskblade will still tell if you're in a bush that's warded so you can still pick up a Sweeping Lens and use it it in conjunction with that). To compensate, you get more utility in a slow that lasts longer (albeit, it's total slow is reduced by a little bit), little bit more damage on the passive late game so you can fulfill your job and assassinate the backline, and you can get it just a little bit cheaper. > > What i mean by ward camo is making it so, during the shield duration of edge of night, wards dont see you but players can. In this way it retains its use, stays pre-meditated, and doesnt break the item due to situational use. > The current automagic sweeper is quite generalist. I don't know. I'd rather just have it give regular camo at that point.
Ur trying to take early game away from an early game style of champion and item stop hating on assassins all the time and stop disrespecting dmg. Build armor and a little health and you will be fine. A lot of ap items grant health and sizeable ap as well as zhonyas hourglass which as one of the best actives in the game as well as granting u 75 ap 10%cdr and 45 armor. ninja tabi will block a lot of the damage as well. Some users i agree are too strong when they pair with storm razor such as talon and wukong but they're already working on that
: Riot, please consider removing electrocute from the game
Get good and dont get hit by 3 abilities in rapid succession. That simple and the damage isnt that crazy from it anyway. I do however understand like some champions take no skill to proc it with targetted abilities and stuff but by making the fights slower electrocute users will lose. And I'd assume a little positioning could make u not be such an open target for electrocute users also bone plating is a soft counter
: "damage and burst are too high" hello riot what are u smoking i main zed and if the enemy mid have a seekers wich is 1100 gold cost i cant kill him and btw i think riot hate zed so much coz evry single fking patch the nerf lethality or some shit related to zed
Yo same and i feel people will just down vote any post about zed unless ur saying he's broken so these boards really are no help people are too biased
: League gameplay changes over the next few months
Will Zed be getting any compensation for the nerfs coming to domination and sorcery. His early game is already subpar compared to other assassins and mages as far as damage and this nerf may hurt him more

: Tahm Kench Changes: A little concerning.
His main problem is the damage he does, there is no reason to be buffing this champion
: Why the game isn't fun anymore
I agree it feels like there is no skill expression at all in the game anymore, people just plays something like garen, wukong or talon and the game is over. Champs that have mechanics to them in order to do damage who actually feel like you need to put together a combo to get a kill are irrelevant when you can play a champion that is simple and does more damage than your full combo in a single ability. It makes the game boring when you feel like you have no presence in the game and its decided in champ select by who is playing the more simple champions who do the most damage. Why can Wukong do 1000 damage in one basic attack? It makes no sense. Why play anything aside from a tank because tanks do nothing but soak up damage and are on par with squishier champions in damage. The game isn't fun as long as it feels skill doesn't matter. Macro does matter but a lot of times its hard to get things done against the simple champs. Not fun please do something, i love league but i dont feel like its worth playing if im not feeling my skill matters

That to me is a sure sign to NOT buff this champion further. https://lolalytics.com/ranked/worldwide/current/platinum/plus/champion/Zed/ 50% win rate is healthy for a champion who is supposedly mechanically intensive.
you play jungle and bot lane and based on previous games you play a lot of twitch you seem to just be hating on zed for the sake of being a marksmen main. Zed's early game is atrocious his damage is non existent. if you manage to get 3 items being youmuus duskblade and either edge of night or lord dominiks regard you then have a big damage and even then the slightest amount of armor does make zeds damages significantly less. i think you should try to play zed before you speak on whether he is good or not because all you have here is a few numbers some of which are irrelevant such as the low elo ban rates. i would also like to point out i started my post with "hi meddler" followed by my question if you dont like it just down vote it, im simply asking a question and you went all caps stop being a hater

Hi Meddler, Is there any plans on giving zed a buff to help his early game at all
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 22
Do you guys plan to give Zed any kind of buff to help with his weak early game, he feels terrible to play and this is coming from someone who plays him everyday
: Experiment: Community Patch Notes
{{champion:238}} Gives him slightly stronger early game and more of a reason to go in for the auto to get his energy than just run around a fight. Zeds team fighting and early laning are in a bad spot and it can feel like you're not strong until four items although if you do get ahead I didn't want changes to be too strong and result in a huge snowball which is why these are early game buffs to help him find relevance where he just seems outclassed by everything. **Passive - Contempt For The Weak:** When triggered on an enemy champion Zed restores a small portion of energy. 25 at all ranks **Q - Razor Shuriken :** Damage to units beyond first increased to 70% from 60% **R - Death Mark :** Damage dealt by death mark increased from 25/40/55% to 30/40/55%
: _Dear boards gods please let me answer this one honestly without incurring too many downvotes_ Yo, the team was def expecting this question. Even though it's technically the same price as before (we just scaled up the cost when we multiplied all your other BE by 6.5 for the new season), it feels like it costs more because now BE is useful for unlocking champs more directly. The short answer is that we don’t currently have plans to change the price because the team wants to be careful about removing too many things that BE is used for unlocking. I can share a little more on the thinking around it: The reason Mastery 6 & 7 have always cost BE to upgrade is mostly because we needed to give players a use for BE back in the old system. Now that we’ve connected the loot system with the normal rewards system, we’re having to think longterm about what should and shouldn’t cost BE. Mostly BE is useful for unlocking champs, but we want it to be useful for everybody—including people who don't want to use it on champs. The new leveling system gives vets gemstones and unique emotes alongside the other stuff, and the Blue Essence Emporium is working out pretty well too. There’s more we’ll have to do on that front, but I’m sure we’ll figure it out over time.
I think the problem is that the BE is harder to earn and it feels like more because we're now limited because of the merge. Because now its hard enough to earn a decent amount of BE because it takes a year and a half to level up but also it takes about 2 levels at the most MAYBE to pass 3000 BE and then with champions you may want as well the prices are to high for the small amount of income of BE
