Please tell me how to counter zed when you're the adc

#1AmarajahPosted 4/9/2013 7:35:37 AM
I don't think it's possible considering with flash he has 3 gap closers, and his ult damage will DEFINITELY kill you through anything. Basically rush qss and do no damage or die?

Don't get hit.
Hit it till it dies.

Stay out of a team fight until he's blown his damage load or pray your team knows how to peel.

Hope that you have a really good team backing you up. Hope he goes for the AP carry instead of you. Get a Lulu ult, shen ult, and/or a shield from Lux/Orianna. A fed zed is really obnoxious to deal with as the adc :(

bear in mind that his ult is his biggest gap closer. his W's range isn't all that much. If he ults you, use an escape such as ezreal or corki's, then flash if he has to shadow dash to you.

At some point you REALLY should have someone peel for you >.>

1v1, yo're not SUPPOSED to beat zed as the ADC.

Yeah, if he dives straight for you, you just have to hope that that meant he got up wished by the rest of your team on the way that you can at least trade. That's one of those situations where your positioning is terribly important, but if it comes down to fight or flee. You're not getting away. Might as well stay and output as much damage as you possibly can.

Also it depends on the degree of how big the Zed is, but a well times Barrier can negate a lot of his Ulti damage. Enough that if it's in the late game and you have a lot of life steal, you may be able to sustain through it and pray that your team peels well. But it's not guaranteed that you'll live, simply because he is an assassin.

Have an escape or buy a QSS, boom, Zed is now useless.

if he's fed and my team is bad, I usually buy zhonyas

Also, if he's super focusing you, tell your support to specifically save their exhaust for him during his main combo. That again can really high ten your chances of surviving initial burst and living long enough to punish him for diving.

Exhaust and flash.

Any reposition skill.
