Threats & Synergies
Who the hell plays Teemo mid? Doran Shield. Just W-E-Q him down......
Stars orbiting 24/7 to make you dizzy, but if you land a full combo you out trade him. Dodge his stun using your mobility to win lane, tell your teammates when he is missing because he will be ganking other lanes before you knew it.
Her ult is the only problem. Her full kit can easily be dodged by using your mobility, at 3-5 she can easily be killed if charm is dodged. If you hit 6 before her all in to get a free kill or take her flash, after 6 you should use R-W-E-Q-W-R because her ult has a cooldown before second/third cast. You might want to take Cleanse, get Hexdrinker when behind and call your jungler to gank for wasting her ult, wet dream for you.
Just dodge, his passive could be annoying and make sure don't get too low on HP, if you kill him, you may die as well. Get Hexdrinker when behind.
Dodge her Q with your mobility and just all in when she has no Q. If for some reason she DOES gets ahead, buy a Hexdrinker immediately because her full combo really hurts, but even though shes ahead but misses, she's still dead. She has no mobility other than flash so she is very easy to gank. You might want to take Cleanse.
Don't dive him, he has his annoying poke but your W-E-Q out trades him, if you dodge his ult with your W or ult, he's dead.
Skill matchup heavily favouring you. Why? Because Zed gets 3 pots and Yasuo gets 1 pot only. Windwall only blocks Q, he dodges with his E but if you land a W-E-Q you simply out trade him. WATCH OUT FOR HIS LEVEL 1 AND 2, ESPECIALLY LEVEL 2, after that the lane is yours, it goes even easier after level 6. Dodge his tornado, get Tabis.
Skill matchup heavily favouring you. Level 3-5 go all in if he misses his W1 and W2. Level 6 onwards whoever ults first loses, get Oracles. You're W-E-Q is much easier to land than his combo. PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR HIS LEVEL 2, YOU CANNOT 1V1 HIM AT THAT POINT. Hit 6 before him? All in.
Take TP instead of Ignite, dodge his stun with your ult and you're fine.
W-E-Q out trades her, dodge her ult with your ult, get Hexdrinker when behind. No mobility means easy kills when your jungle comes.
Point and click ult is unable to be dodged except using your ult, her ult does more damage than you thinks so I would prefer dodging her ult rather than her stun/knockback. Get Hexdrinker when behind. As always flying champion are hard to hit.
Annoying poke but your W-E-Q is worse, dodge his stun and kill him, he has no mobility so call your jungle for free kills.
Dodge her ult or turn back, she can stop you from switching places with your shadows, same as Karthus, just keep on dodging. If you play correctly you can kill her easily or make her recall back. You might want to take Cleanse.
His range is annoying, just keep dodging his bombs. When you ult him, he can knock himself and you away from each other, so use the same combo as you fight against Ahri and get Hexdrinker when behind. If you get ahead it is easy for you to snowball while he can't really snow ball you when you're behind as long as you play properly.
Same as Ziggs, keep on dodging and you win if you play properly and get Hexdrinker when behind.
Dodge stun and all in. After combat remember to watch out for his piss, dodge his pisses just like dodging Karthus Q.
His full combo hurts more than your's but it is easy to dodge, buy Hexdrinker when you are behind and he has no mobility to escape ganks other than his flash.
Even matchup, whoever gets a kill first wins the lane. If she gets a kill first, you would really want to rush Hexdrinker. CAREFUL FOR HER LEVEL 6.
Hard, point and click stun and AOE stun. If you ult her, she will put her bear right on top of her because theres a cooldown before you switch back to your R position. Rush Hexdrinker and call for jungle ganks.
If you get an early kill, this could be easy. His level 6 onwards is better than your's so you need to find a way to outplay him or use R-W-E-Q-W-R. Hexdrinker when behind and watch out for his roams.
The Akali before the rework is easy, but now it becomes hard. Her shroud can be a problem, get Hexdrinker if you are not confident. If you get ahead, it is not easy to snowball, if you get behind, it is easy for her to snowball you.
Tanks, pain in the ass. Call jungle ganks for easy kills. He does a lot of damage even though he has no AP items, so imagine him going full AP. His taunt is the problem and you might want to take TP to follow up his roam.
Get Hexdrinker, she is very hard to play against due to her mobility. Her combo hurts, try kill her before level 6 or all in when you hit 6 first.
Try to all in if you hit 6 first. Get Hexdrinker when behind and his ult is a massive threat to your ult, or to dodge your full combo. Call your jungle for easy kills, otherwise levels 3-5 would be good choices to all in.
His ult counters yours, don't get poked a lot. Hit 6 before him all in is your time for a free kill.
Disgusting matchup, her mobility and damage is very bad for Zed. If you get behind you're team will have fun with the 29/1 Katarina on the other team scoring Pentakills.
Her egg is gonna make you tilt. The best way to kill her is to call your jungle, she is extremely squishy though. She can make a wall to block you from escaping. She is very hard to hit since she is flying, aim her shadow instead of her 3D model.
This b*tch is flying. Same for Anivia, aim her shadow. Her ult counters you. She will destroy you in lane so try to roam as much as possible when she is not focusing on you.
She can make a clone just like LB so don't ult her clone. She does a lot of damage and her ult can be defensive to her which counters you, don't get hit by her abilities too much.
Invulnerability in 8 seconds cooldown, WHAT??? He wins almost all trades so you have to play smart. Try avoid the fish so that it doesn't attach to you. If the fish hits you, most likely you cannot dodge it because he can use his E to make himself untargetable. Take Exhaust and rush Hexdrinker.
He gets movements speed to dodge your abilities and ult to revive anyone in the team which makes you useless in the whole game. I would avoid picking Zed when a Zilean is on the other team. All in when you hit 6 before him.
Mortal Reminder, massive healing and a pool to make him untargetable. Get Hexdrinker when behind and GET EXECUTIONERS ASAP.
Rush QSS as soon as you can but still get some damage though. his point and click supression gives you 0.5 seconds (3.0-2.5) to do damage which you will probably only hit E. No mobility so call your jungle for free kills.
Qiyanni out damage you, rush Tabis, call jungle and get away from walls.
Her ult can be dodged with your mobility but her kit out damage you. Get Tabis and call jungle for free kills.
This French Aunty can nullify your ult with one click and kills you right after you make a mistake. Have fun :)
Steals your ult and does more damage than you. Rush Hexdrinker when needed and call your jungler for ganks.
Tryndamere mid does exist. 5 seconds undying rage WTF??? Kill him 3-5.
Dodge his ult with your abilities, he's very hard to deal with in the mid lane.
Her ult counters you in 2 ways, stuns you when you ult her, or make herself invulnerable, and shes tanky. Just dodge the game because you will go 0/10.
My perma ban. She does shit tonnes of damage if she lands a full combo. STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RUSH HEXDRINKER, THEN MERCS, THEN QSS. Even though if you get ahead, she can still kill you easily with her high damage and hard CC. Her ult can also be used to dodge your abilities. Call jungle to gank your lane. The worst nightmare for you is when she picks up exhaust or barrier, EVEN WORSE - she can pick up Zhonyas Hourglass. Riot man......
Sorry, I still didn't find a way to beat GP in mid or top lane. This will be updated when a solution is found.
Same for GP, will be updated when a solution is found. Make sure you dodge his R
Same for GP, will be updated when a solution is found.
I have no idea what this champion does except for that ability allowing herself and her teammates being untargetable, which counters you in some ways. Use your mobility to dodge her skillshots and ultimate.
Zed against high mobility ADC matchups in lane especially Vayne and Lucian is almost guaranteed lose. ADC with high mobility can dodge your combo or poke and fight you when you have nothing to fight back. Start off with Doran Shield and ask for jungle ganks.
She is anti-assassin so outplay is required. The amount of damage reduction she did also contributes to your final ult damage which is great. Her ult can be dodged by your ult.
Go play ranked...... Stop playing normals......
Don't pick Zed when Bard is in the game because his ult can counter you when he is in your team or in the other team.
Her ult... Sigh
Her chain CC is very easy for you to land combos on the enemy.
Gives you movement speed, a lot of shields and turns you into Mega Zed which helps you survive in team fights after you try and kill their ADC.
