Xin Zhao Tips

Xin Zhao's "playing against" tip:

"Xin Zhao relies on hitting enemies at close range to become stronger in fights. Try slowing his movement speed and staying away."

That is some very useful insight on countering this champion. Try staying away and slowing him down? I never thought of that before. No, this is not another qq thread about "OMG XIN IS OP".
No, but some actual tips would be nice. Because if you keep them this way you may as well just remove the entire Tips tab from some champions, as he is not the only one with "pro" tips.

And now compare the "playing against" tip of just running away from Xin Zhao to his "playing as" tips, which are two btw, where you say that:

-he is an excellent ambusher. Use your Audacious Charge to reach an opponent and Three Talon Strike to damage and knock then into the air.
-he is an excellent initiator in combat. Lead the front to start a fight and use his ultimate to deal the most damage possible.

So bottom line : if Xin appears in front of you, just run back to your base, hide behind a tree and wait for him to leave. At least that's what you have to do if you're following these tips.
