I am not even a zed main and i play zed rarely (check match history if you think i'm bluffing).
Even if it's me playing zed, a team mate, or an enemy, it's the same ideea. Zed needs a buff.
He's decent on early but his lategame as an assassin ( just like Talon) fades away. 1-2 years ago you could've one-shot the enemy squishy champions and now if you're not fed from early you can barely win a 1v1 against their ADC. It's a shootout to every AD assassin player over there.
Assassins ARE MEANT to almost instantly kill the squishy ones, without having to be 10/0 at min 20, else why on earth are they even called ASSASSINS?...
