    Reminds me of Lord Zedd from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

    Example: GC works at McDonalds. Some idiots walks up to the counter and asks for a Whopper. GC tells him they do not sell Whoppers. The idiot flips a nut. Calls GC off and throws straws at him. GC asks him to leave.

    Though that is another thing I have to complain about. For a champ based around his shadow, it has a fairly long cooldown.

    If you felt his damage was lacking, you weren't positioning his shadows correctly to do damage. During team fights it's so simple to have them surrounded by your 3 shadows, and if they all hit their the same target(s), you regain energy. I'm pretty sure once people learn to use his shadows well, he'll be a ban in ranked cause of his insane kill potential, not just because people don't know how to counter him.
    EDIT - His shadow cooldown goes lower every time you hit your E skill (the spin), and it gets reduced even more if your shadow hits too.

    That was on the PBE. I have no problems with him now and have been enjoying playing him. Still think the CD on W should be lower. Really, the only way to make use of his E lowering the CD is by playing him in the jungle (which is how I play him). In lane, you just end up pushing your lane and putting yourself in a vulnerable position. As a melee assassin, that is the worst thing you could do.

    Before purchasing Zed, I tried him out on a friend's account and decided to try out top. I went up against a Malphite, and it was awesome being able to poke him while he was sitting on his tower with W>Q>E combo. I actually managed to kill him twice doing this at level 3 and again at level 5. I don't think overextending is a problem on zed to be honest, I was able to juke a few ganks really well throughout that game while laning by casting shadows in bushes and pretending to run into river.

    I've only been in a few games with him but in every single one he has sucked utter balls.

    Something I've wondered a lot though; when you and your shadow both fire your Q, where do they intersect? Do they cross in the middle of their paths or both just go towards the same target or...?

    At least for now you, I haven't played against him but every champion gets figured out by everyone at some point in time.
    The Runaway. I love my new nickname. Is there a picture of me? Does it look good?

    You need to find someone whose good with him then.

    His Q works the same for both him and his shadow. If you have your cursor in between them, then the shurikens will cross each other. If you put Zeds shadow in front of him, then your cursor in front of the shadow, they will fire the shurikens in a straight line.

    The shadow works just like a player for skill shots, in accordance to where your cursor is.

    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.
