How can Riot justify Zed's damage

I just played a match against Zed and by level 5 his Q was hitting me for 60% of my health and his AA hit me for the rest. How can Riot honestly justify this much damage so early on?

Zed was level 5 and it did 60% of your maximum health?

I don't care who you were, even sona wouldn't take that much damage from one Q. Did he somehow have a BT already?

Build armor/don't get hit by skillshots during laning phase/stand behind your minions?

If 265 damage is 60% of your health then you must have been at level 1.

Needs more context. Did Zed have a fortitude pot, did u have armor runes, etc, items?

All Zed can do is damage. He has no CC besides that weak situational slow.

That's what leveling Q does for you.

By level 7 I was keeping exact track. All he had was a brutalizer and his Q hit me for 578 damage. At the time (I was playing Fizz) I had 1050 hp. Then his AA proceeded to hit me for 478 damage and I was dead. No I don't have armor runes, this was mid and Im AP. Kinda hard to avoid skillshots when he ends up right on top of you.

I was playing as tristana and kept getting wrecked by zed, but that's not because he's OP

I got wrecked because ADCs suck and I'm not good with tristana and zed's job is wrecking ADCs

go play a bruiser and see his Q do 20% or less
