>make it so if you're behind you feel like you can at least escape zed w-q combo when he's 17/0 (because your midlaner fed) Amazing. Someone asking to be able to survive a fed Zed's combo as someone who is behind. We're reaching levels of _**Yikes**_ I didn't even know existed!

I assume it's fan art, but I wanna see what else they've made Well, it's not actually supposed to be a Shuriman design. It's the idea for a Justicar/Arclight Zed skin concept from years ago that looks slightly Shuriman due to the gold, so that's why I remembered it and just searched up "Justicar Zed" to use it. I don't know the original creator/artist, though, sadly.

Gold is a mere step up from Silver, but a lot of the same issues I hear with players in Silver, I hear from Gold players too. And Diamond+ is where all the big boys are (i.e. pro-players or ex-pro players), albeit a lot of Plat issues are similar to low Diamond issues.

: A Halloween skin for Kled had huge potential but Riot ruined by giving a 'cute' skin because he's a yordle. But unlike other Yordles he's a damn redneck looking for some fights and to kill. He has a pretty unique personality too and with this skin what identifies Kled is completely gone. Its like giving Nocturne or Zed a skin where they look cute and like a plushie. I mean Dracula and a bat are not actually a bad idea for the skin but turning them in to something cute like that? It's a huge downside for me to buy it.

: Corki is currently in Piltover... so that's the place he's defending from the air (Although, it's not clear WHAT he's defending it from...) I'd say the thousands of miles of contested independent states are probably a much larger reason that Noxus can't invade Demacia directly (YET. We'll get them in the end!) But Demacia certainly does use its raptors to move quickly over the mountainous areas on its borders - there's not going to be infinite numbers of them, though. We could be talking about a dozen, or fifty, or a hundred. Not enough to turn back the Trifarian Legion before someone shoots them all down, at least! :-)

I'd like to see an event focusing on Demaxia, actually, to mix things up. So we're following Demaxia, as they transport Syndra (an Ionan traitor) across the galaxy to Demaxia and staving off the Morning Star Crew and aliens: {{champion:238}}: Emperor Jarvan IV's right hand man, Zed took over his adoptive father's position as High Ordinal and began the climb to Grand General, after it was revealed that his adoptive father (and Zed's brother, Shen), were Ionan Sympathizers, Zed killed the former, as the latter escaped somewhere in the galaxy, building his own group of Ionan Sympathizers. Impressed with Zed's ambition and loyalty to the Demaxian Empire, Emperor Jarvan III granted Zed his father's position, and over the years, Zed climbed to the position of Grand General of Demaxia. Furthermore, Emperor Jarvan III granted him access to a powerful art, in which he can manipulate the Ora of himself and his enemies, forming entities that shadow his every move. Years went by, as he trained Nakuri and Kayn from their young ages. Upon hearing of an Ionan traitor, Zed was dispatched along with Draven, a Nitrocorp Titan, and a legendary bounty hunter to escort her back to Demaxia. Zed does show some interest in a certain Ionan traitor, though it's most likely for her power, more than anything. {{champion:111}} : A state-of-the-art Nitrocorp Arsenal and Utility Titan Mech, or for short, the N.A.U.T. Mech. A sturdy and powerful machine of war, designed to fend off against the fiercest of foes. Using the brain of a betrayed Syndicate Leader, Nitrocorp created a monster to demolish all of Demaxia's opposition. Combat tests had proven this model to be far superior than previous gears of war, and this mission would be a proper test to see how it'd work on a battlefield. Although the brain is compliant to Demaxia's will, it does show light up intensely when stimulated with scenes of blown up ships-- Syndicate ones, to be exact. It has yet to be tested while the brain is controlling the N.A.U.T. Mech. {{champion:134}}: An Ionan traitor, Syndra was disillusioned by the Ionan Templars' philosophies, as they locked her away for over two decades all under the guise of "safekeeping". The power of her Ora is so intense, it has turned from a shining gold to a bright white. If it means giving Ora over to Demaxia, she'll do anything to get revenge on Ionan. Some say her power is so great, she could drain the Ora from the environment-- though this has been proven to be false. Syndra does show some interest a certain Demaxian Grand General dispatched to escort her, though it's most likely for his power, more than anything. {{champion:119}}: In Demaxia, gladiators face one another in arenas where blood is spilled and strength tested—but none has ever been as celebrated as Draven. A former Demaxian soldier, he found that the crowds uniquely appreciated his flair for the dramatic, not to mention the spray of blood from each of his spinning axes. Addicted to the spectacle of his own brash perfection, Draven has sworn to defeat whomever he must to ensure that his name is chanted throughout the empire forever more. In addition to gaining favor with the people, Draven also gained favor with Emperor Jarvan III, who was a big fan. Once rivals with the (then) Prince Jarvan IV, the two slowly warmed up to one another and got around to becoming good friends over the years, even brothers. Draven came along at the request of Emperor Jarvan IV, thirsting for blood and a new challenge. Draven does show some interest in a certain Demaxian gladiator, though it's most likely for his looks, more than anything. {{champion:107}}: A fierce bounty hunter hired by Emperor Jarvan IV to help the Demaxian Transport Squad, Rengar seeks two trophies from this hunt. The large sum of money by the Demaxian Royal Family, as well as the skull of Malphite-- the strongest of the Morning Star Crew and his next (but not last) hunt. As his father was hired by Emperor Jarvan III, and his father before him was hired by Emperor Jarvan II, the Kiilash family and the Jarvan family have been good partners for the past few generations. Though Rengar was abandoned by his father, Emperor Jarvan IV still considers him a worthy business partner and bounty hunter-- even greater than his father, he might argue. _** I'd imagine, similar to the Odyssey Extraction and SG Invasion gamemodes, it's a set of stages leading up to a final boss. Taking place on Ionan, the gang fights off Ionan warriors (a bunch of bruisers and mages, I'd imagine) as they get to the ship (three stages) then switching to the ship, where some alien critters got on board. They proceed to lift off and are deep in space when they're attacked by Syndicate forces. Zed and Rengar move onto one ship to eliminate threats, while Draven and Syndra move onto another, and Nautilus holds the bridge of the ship. If one team finishes before the other, they head back to the main ship and can either help the other team, or help Nautilus. Following this stage is the final boss-- the Morning Star Crew including Sona, except they only have their augments in the highest difficulty. The fight is in two parts-- one, where each champion fights their counterpart (i.e. Zed vs Yasuo, Syndra vs Ziggs, Rengar vs Malphite, Draven vs Jinx, and Nautilus vs full AP Sona. Then, all the crews come together for a final fight. Then, fin. This chapter of the lore is done as the Demaxian ship makes it back to Demaxia. _** Possible Augment Ideas: Zed: _Master_: Zed's Living Shadow spawns three Ora Clones, and Death Mark spawns six Ora Clones, which can all be teleported to by hovering the mouse over them and reactivating the respective ability. In addition, the range has been increased to global. _Grand General_: Zed's Death Mark pop applies to all enemies, and deals 75% of the total damage. _Reaped_: Zed's Death Mark has a maximum duration of 12 seconds, but Zed may pop the mark at any given time via left-clicking any enemies (synergizes with _Grand General_) marked. Nautilus: _Titan_: Nautilus' hook passes through all enemies, and groups all enemies hit as it drags Nautilus to them. _Nitrocorp Mech_: Nautilus' Depth Charge becomes a global shockwave, being repeated up to three times, knocking enemies up each time. _Guarded_: Nautilus' W spreads to all allies, and upon breaking, explodes, stunning all enemies hit. Syndra: _Sovereign_: Syndra's W lifts up all enemies in a certain range, and may slam them all together in a target area upon recasting it. _Ionan Traitor_: Syndra's Q spawns 5 extra Ora Orbs around her, knocking up enemies hit. _Decimated_: Syndra's R becomes a global attack, damaging all enemies on the map with all the Ora Orbs on the map, slamming enemies into the ground, causing them to be rooted for 1.5 seconds. Draven: _Executioner_: Draven's E spins around him upon being thrown out, and then returns back to him. _Demaxian Gladiator_: Draven's axes automatically bounce back to him and slow enemies hit. _Executed_: Draven's R can be guided to different areas with left-click, and does not return back to him upon hitting an enemy, only returning by reactivating Whirling Death. In addition, the axes speed up over the course of 20 seconds. Rengar: _Pridestalker_: Rengar's Empowered E launches a barrage of nets, which all root enemies hit in a certain area. _Bounty Hunter_: Rengar's W is global, causing all enemies hit to be feared for 2 seconds. _Hunted_: Rengar's R lasts 30 seconds, and does not expire upon attacking an enemy or being attacked. In addition, Rengar may jump to any enemy as many times as he wishes within those 30 seconds, with his first attack every 6 seconds being a critical strike, reducing the enemy's armor. _** Alas, we'll probably get another Ahri, Ezreal, Lux, Miss Fortune, and Jhin crew as a rival to the Morning Stars (Evening Stars?). :^)

: The logic you chose is historic. How does it explain the following tiers, that is: silver before gold, then platinum and diamond? It is easier for me to conceive this scale as one of perceived value, with bronze being used in sculptures and currencies of lesser value, silver employed in silverware and jewellery (among other things, such as electronics), gold doesn't corrode in the open air and is called a noble metal, platinum is used in jewellery (again!), is a noble metal as well _and_ is used in chemistry and the industry (holds corrosive stuff like it's nothing), diamond is just sold hefty amounts of money even though it's just carbon. It isn't a scientific scale, nor a historic one. It's just "hey, how much do you think this costs?"

: Honestly, if Rhaast is as powerful as other Dark Star champions, then Thanos isn't even comparable to him (he's unimaginably weaker).

However, something about Rhaast being trapped in a weapon and having to battle for control with Kayn says to me that he isn&#x27;t quite as powerful as the other Dark Star champs. I feel that Rhaast IS significantly weaker than the others, BUT, what he lacks in raw power, he makes up for by being able to travel to alternate universes and open the door for the rest of the Dark Stars. After all, we've not been given any evidence that the others can do something like that, so it's prolly just something special about Rhaast in particular. That's also PROBABLY why he's gold/red as opposed to the general black/purple in the context of the story (he's actually gold/red for clarity).

I also heard The Glitch Mob was at Riot's HQ a while back, too. Earlier this year, I think. Maybe. They tweeted a pic out IIRC. We could be seeing a TGM X TFR collab for this year's Worlds. While I don't care much for TFR, The Glitch Mob would be NUT-WORTHY.

: Champions who will probably recieve updated bios
: Because I know they aren't true. I've barely played this year because of the way the balance has been, then I had a mid life crisis that I'm still going through. Anyway my favorite champions to play yes struggle against him. But even then, most champs because of runes and Duskblade, who could do well against him, used to be able too. Now they can't. Last few years I played way more mid, and before Zed had become a stupid OP champ, I was able to deal with him quite well. But I've changed to support lately because of all this crazy snowball damage fest of a game.

But I've changed to support lately because of all this crazy snowball damage fest of a game. Except... most of them were? I've also barely played this year due to balance. Also due to the game simply not being very fun (mechanically, that is. Nexus Blitz and Odyssey are really fun). And there's another issue that might have some effect on why you hate Zed so much. Your champions simply aren't that good against him. You don't have to really change who you play Support generally-- but you should consider picking Janna, Lulu, or even Nautilus or Tahm Kench if you see a Zed on the enemy team and your team isn't already equipped to deal with him (e.g. heavy CC from Jungler, good bruiser Top to duel, someone who can push Zed in at Mid). Zed's runes and Duskblade have been nerfed. Duskblade's gonna become an exclusive with Stormrazor. A lot of the champions who used to do well against him still do, with a couple of exceptions (i.e. Liss and Brand, who come to mind). But Zed WAS legitimately a stupid OP champ a few years ago. He was ABSOLUTELY absurd in Season 6, and many Zed mains claim Season 5 (and 3) as the BEST season(s) for Zed (despite the Tank Meta in S5), and you know us Zed mains. Never satisfied unless Zed is ridiculously broken, right? I digress. Perhaps your switch from roles had SOME effect on your playstyle? It's happened to a few of my friends. One of them, who mains Jungle, wasn't very familiar with playing mid on anyone aside from Veigar and Ryze (i.e. spam bois). He eventually got better, but still makes some key mistakes whenever he plays Mid because he's not a Mid Main. I have a sinking suspicion that your Support Playstyle clashes with your Mid Playstyle, and this has SOME effect on your fighting against Zed. Especially considering your main champions of Lux, Nami, and Morg, who generally play more passively in lane until they see an opportunity for a good Q, which isn't as effective as a playstyle against Zed in Mid as someone like Vlad or Kayle, who play more aggressively against Zed and have a few safety measures to fall back on in case something goes wrong (albeit Kayle's W isn't as useful as Vlad or Zed having their Ws up in the event of a gank from the enemy JG).
: Haha. Biased Zed main. Nope, it's not me. I do everything I can including Zhonya's, resolve, and exhaust as I'm mostly a support main, but I do play mid sometimes. Doesn't do shit. Reported. You aren't worth responding to anymore. And yes, it's Zed. Period. Bye!

None of your most played champions, as far as I can see, are ideal for dealing with Zed as a Support. If anything, Zed can actually easily play around your champs and get to his target. You have a few champions (mostly tanks) which work, but they aren't one of your more played champions. That's probably why you're having a hard time as Support with Zed. With mid, since you're mostly a Support Main, you aren't as proficient in Mid-Lane as a proper Mid Main. I'd know because I was there as well. I started out as a Lux Support, and eventually moved into Mid Lane with Ahri and then Zed. But I wasn't as good at Mid (or Zed/Ahri for that matter) as I was with Support. Reported? For what? Calling you out on your post? Alright. I've got nothing to lose at this point. Whether it's justified or not, I'm not gonna argue. I like how you responded accurately to every single point of mine, though. Every single one. With quite an elaborate response. Bye!

And really. I'm not assuming anything. I know for a FACT you aren't truly trying to beat him. If you are, the ONLY reason Zed should be able to beat you is if he gets fed off of your teammates. Even then, that's NOT on him. That's on your teammates for being literal fucking acorns. If your earlier "points" are so true, shouldn't everyone struggle against him? Should he not have a 100% banrate and a 100% winrate when he's not banned? Shouldn't all Zed mains be in Challenger because they just roflstomp the poor enemy mage and proceed to steamroll over their team? Shouldn't Zed be the number one picked champion in ALL Elos? In Bronze-Silver, where nobody knows how to play against him, so Zed absolutely demolishes people like you, or Gold-Plat, where people have a better idea how to play against him, but still struggle due to their teammates not knowing how to play against him, or Diamond-Challenger, where he's absolute shit because EVERYONE knows how to play against him up there, and the top champions played are mostly M A G E S? Shouldn't Zed be a Pick/Ban in Pro-Play if he's SOOOO dominating just like... oh shit, M A G E S HAVE BEEN FOR THE PAST FEW SEASONS? Shouldn't your points apply GLOBALLY? If so, why DON'T some people struggle against Zed? Why ISN'T Zed at 100% winrate and banrate? Why AREN'T ALL Zed mains in Challenger? Why ISN'T Zed the number one picked champion in ALL Elos? Why ISN'T Zed a dominating pick/ban in Pro-Play? Why DON'T your points apply GLOBALLY? Because the problem is with you. The player. Not just YOU in particular, but most people in low elo who DON'T know how to play against Zed. Run Resolve Secondary, with Barrier. Play champions who give Zed a hard time like Vlad, or Annie. Get Stopwatch ASAP and rush Seeker's, into Tabi's. This early game denial is so strong it will force Zed to either roam to get kills, or you'll have to fuck up MONUMENTALLY for him to get him a kill. Once you get Zhonya's. Don't let Zed push you in. His Qs deal SIGNIFICANTLY less damage through minions. Stay out of range of his W, or try to bait it out so you have 22 seconds of free reign over midlane (huh, that rhymed). There's a myriad of options. Don't look to Riot to nerf him 6 ft under just so you don't have to see him again. Look to high-elo players who stomp Zed. Look at what they run, what items they rush, how they play. Take what they know and apply it to YOURSELF. You won't get better at the game if everything you hate gets gutted. You'll only get better if you can beat everything you hate as they are. The stronger they are, the more of a challenge it'll be. Zed's in a decent spot right now. He's not as absurd as Season 6, while not as dogshit as he was in Season 7. Now would be the IDEAL time to beat Zed. And Zed's main complaint is his damage. THAT'S what people think is making him strong. The truth is, even if Zed's damage was nerfed, people will STILL find shit to complain about, like his W, or his R, or his E. It's not his damage that's the issue. It's peoples' refusal or flat out denial of counterplay that makes him so "strong". People refuse to build armor. People refuse to go Resolve. People refuse to get Stopwatch early. Then Zed takes advantage of that and absolutely decimates them. Then, [they take to the Boards, and lo and behold.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/tlZPuahX-why-does-zed-have-such-a-high-ban-rate?comment=0004)

: Ivern is in the LAST place in the popularity list over a year...
>So...maybe......just MAYBE buff him a BIT instead of the already strong Zed? https://i.imgflip.com/2i45ci.jpg He doesn't need straight buffs. He needs a complete rehaul. His kit just doesn't function well enough in general, unless his numbers are overtuned. And unless you want him to get gutted three times as hard as he already is, overtuned buffs are the LAST thing you want for him. Zed is not strong. He's ok. Not strong like Season 6, not weak like Season 7. Fin.

>evil murderers like Zed and Vayne https://i.imgflip.com/2i45ci.jpg What defines "good"? Is it just that they don't kill? Because Ivern has killed before. So has Cait. Not sure if Ryze ended up having to kill anyone in his lore. But if it's that they don't kill, that wipes a few of your options out. If it's that they fight on the side of justice, Zed is definitely an option. His whole shtick, even before he embraced the shadows, was to bring criminals to true justice. Not locking them away for them to break out. Moreso, he wished to punish Noxus for their war crimes against Ionia. Is that not justice? Same with Shen, although he followed his father/master's edict and chose to abide by sending Jhin to prison and now fights for balance. Vayne, on the other hand, is fighting against the things that go bump in the night. Things that killed her parents and are sure to kill other kids' parents. Is that not good? But if it's just that they don't work in the dark/have much (or any) connection to darkness, then you're looking for light/wholesome characters: {{champion:53}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:3}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:10}} (until her VGU), {{champion:117}} {{champion:99}} (literally), {{champion:37}} {{champion:44}} {{champion:26}}

Low blow. Change of change of plans. Have Ryze hide the Runes in a place only I have access to and kill him off via Scuttle Crab. Then I'll gather the Runes and get back on track.
: 1) Because he's an infuriating bitch to play against. 2) He counters just about every mage and can beat any other assassin if played right. 3) He is completely broken especially with Duskblade at it's highest peak. 4) Zhonya's isn't even a counter anymore. He can delete through the weak armor it gives come mid game, and since the active CD was nerfed from 90 seconds to 120, he can ult you now over three times in the timespan that it's down so it's save me once, die two or more time after. 5) He can still kill you without ult, and even if he did ult, even if you flashed after, you still fucking die, thanks to Riot buffing the damage in the game with runes and what not. So that's why people ban him.

I don't care about the rest of SKT. Faker needs a new team. His jungler and top rely too much on him. He needs to be in a team where he can carry mid, while the rest of his team are sufficient enough to carry themselves to the best of their ability as well. Or just completely rework SKT and kick out Untara and Blank.
