Threats & Synergies
Nidalee is probably my least favorite matchup when playing Zac. She has a ton of movement, and is able to dodge anything you use on her. Do not fight early, wait for late game.
Same story with Nidalee. A lot of movement and out damages you in trades. Wait for late game and peel him off.
An annoying match up because he can countergank pretty easily with his R. Late game becomes easy just for the fact he falls off.
Same thing with Nidalee. Impossible to hit, wait for late game.
HARD COUNTER. Almost impossible to land an E if he is in the fight. Avoid the matchup if possible.
Same thing as Volibear. Instant counter to your engage.
Pretty easy to out jungle. If you are able to counter gank, make sure to take advantage. Most of his damage comes from his passive so fighting him in groups counters him.
This matchup can be difficult if you try to fight him early and he gets a lead. If you are able to keep his movements on lock and counter gank, he should not be a problem.
Only problem with this guy is if he presses Q, he can stop your jump. Everything else is not a problem.
Evelyn currently is probably one of the best junglers you can play. As Zac, you need vision on her via control wards. All you can do is peel and hope she doesnt one shot your carrys.
Only scary if he knows how to play Lee, and even then he is not that bad to go against.
Not very hard to play against, just need to make sure you pay attention to his map movements and counter gank.
Super annoying early game and late. One of the harder match ups, just avoid him.
Super annoying to fight, a lot of movement, and a lot of damage that can destroy you early.
If he goes blue Kayn against you, its a free win. Red Kayn is the one of the worst match ups because of his knockup and healing. Still not hard to win against, but annoying.
Easy matchup if you peel.
Only good because of his ult.
Very good if she picks into you. Very easy matchup.
Literally only farms.
Annoying to go against because he can stop your E.
Super annoying, out damages you, and has a lot of map pressure.
If you peel, you kill him.
Annoying, but easy to win against. Just play around your team, and peel him off.
One of the more annoying matchups because of her damage and map pressure early. Ward up and counter gank.
You counter her ultimate hard, and can stop her going onto your team. Just make sure to hold your ultimate for hers.
One of the easier matchups as long as he doesnt get ahead. If he does, hold your E for his Q.
Nunu & Willump
Super hard to out smite for later objectives. Try and shut him down early and win early.
Pretty easy to win against seeing as you out tank and out engage her.
His taunt is annoying for your engage.
PEEL FOR YOUR TEAM.
If you ever have this matchup, just ward his jungle, and counter gank.
In this guide, I will try and guide you through the ways you can play Zac and build him!

I will try and keep this guide updated as much as possible and add to it whenever I can!
A very strong strategy that very little Zac players use is the lane gank. With a control ward/sweeper, clear out your laner's bushes. When cleared just wait for an easy to hit E. This is also very strong for counter ganking.
Step 1: Engage
Before a teamfight, you need to focus on getting in a non-warded area for the best chance to get big engage on a group of enemies. As Zac engaging, you need to hit the carry and lock them down. Use your full combo then switch to peel.
Step 2: Peel
After engaging, you need to make sure your carries live. Normally, you won't be able to get 5 man ultimates and not have to worry about someone jumping on your ADC or APC.
As long as your able to do this 2 step process for most teamfights, you'll win them if you give your team enough breathing room!
