    zed vs adc mid ... what can be done to make zed win ?!

    i can't take it .... it's just unfair ! every time they got zed on mid ( my team ) we face an adc who just wins easily ... what can we do as a solution for this move ... and sometimes we just don't get the enough time to make zed stands on his feet again !

    At all time Zed have the upper hand against ADCs. His highest kill potential is mid game. So, stalling to late game teamfight it isnt good for Zed. He's gonna get outscale the longer ur team wait. Finding, picks gonna be less frequent and teamfighing harder because of peels and armor stacking from ennemyteams

    Adcs need farm i.e they cannot roam. Zed, on the other hand, is an annoying baby sitter for the bot lane. Roam get kills etc... Also, don't start with Armor pen. I've played zed like once, don't remember if that's essential. Try life steal for sustain and you have a considerably longer range than most so use it wave clear.

    Zed killed by an adc? this is really funny. an adc must be a free kill for any assasin but he is killed by adc :))

    Playing an assassin vs an adc is a pretty straightforward matchup. And one you should learn how to play properly if you main an assassin or just play a lot of assassins.

    Remember that assassin counters adc in the mid- and lategame, so your main objective is to survive long enough that you outscale your enemy laner. Unless you're feeding and/or not farming at all you should be eventually outscaling any adc as Zed.

    Different assassins have different powerspikes, and when you start winning depends on the enemy adc, but it often boils down to winning by the level 3/4 powerspike (when you get all 3 of your spells), by level 6 (your ult) or by level 9 (max rank on main damage spell).

    As a rule of thumb, learn to play safe until level 6, when you should be able to all-in if you're not too behind. I'm guessing Zed wins most adc matchups by that point, but you should get to know the nuances of every mid lane adc if you want this to stop being a problem. Use your spells to farm, save your mobility to dodge skillshots and don't use it offensively unless you want to go all in, focus on dodging skillshots and getting gold and xp.

    AFAIK you should win literally every adc matchup if you play properly unless you get camped by the jungler. If you're having doubts as what you could improve in particular you can always record a game, upload it to youtube and post it in the forums for a better analysis (just the laning phase should be enough, I think the first 10 minutes should cover your concerns).
