Don't compare Apples to Peaches. Lee Sin and Zed are on two completely different wavelengths. Zed does NOT have to try hard to get a kill, and most Zeds tend to go in on targets that they know they can kill without much danger anyway. How can you not see how toxic it is to be able to kill a squishy target when ALL FIVE of the enemy team are there, and they can't do anything about it because all you have to do is blow your load of cooldowns on said squishy, and then tap R to bounce out? How is that fair at all? They haven't nerfed Zed's play style, they've nerfed his ability to get kills he should NOT be getting without serious implications for himself. (Death or alot of damage)
>They haven't nerfed Zed's play style This statement alone invalidates anything you are saying My statement about LeeSin is not comparing the twos jobs,but the fact that a 'Small' nerf can have a big effect on playstyle. If LeeSin could not Inzec then players would have to find different ways of doing the same job. >to be able to kill a squishy target when ALL FIVE of the enemy team are there Against a team with any cc, and a squishy who actually itemizes - you can't. Zed is not a team fighting champion, if he can pick you out, you have miss-played. >because all you have to do is blow your load of cooldowns on said squishy Because if Zed was as easy as mashing a keyboard he would have higher than a 48% win ratio.
: I like this better
I think we'd all like this better. Less harsh on the mechanics but increases zed's lower skillcap whilst nerfing his early game.

: How does this make him unplayable? You're telling me that having a tiny bit of counterplay added to your champion makes him unplayable? You sound like an Urgot main.
Because you are not nerfing his damage output or his cooldowns or his energy - this is a nerf to his mechanics. It is a big change to his playstyle. Imagine if Lee Sin had to wait a second after using his q before he could e. This would mean he couldn't do the "Inzec" play (core play for any lee sin main) anymore. This is the level of nerf we are talking here.
