    Retaliation Zhin is still not balanced

    With his basic attack buff (which was unnecessary) Zhin is hard to counter, especially in casually games where people still shoot his counter.

    With retaliation Zhin has 3 abilities to close distance and if he ends up in the middle of a group he just pops counter. Given the low ttk, you can't afford to wait for Zhin's counter to end nor can you afford to leave him alone.

    Simple fix: retaliation should provide a damage buff to counter or make it so that a successful hit with counter reduces cooldown on all other abilities by 100%.

    Also, even worse, it seems that counter now stacks the number of times you shoot it and will keep activating even if you stop shooting.

    Git gud.

    In all honesty. You just need to play better. Retaliation is bad at high level.

    Not about him, but what can he to with his teammates.. zhin is impossible to kill 1vs1, you need to focus him. Any master champion cant kill a gold zhin, because you only have about 2 seconds to do that, you know counter billow (with healing maybe).
    And seriously now, no flank should be needed at least 2 players to counter him. And to be honest >>> every player is bad at high level, or good. problem is zhin has to of a low gap kill and more over, at close range you cant miss his shots, they cover a 30 inch screen....

    Lol Retaliation is his best card. It acts as a 3rd escape so he can get away or cool down billow. Don't tell people to git gud unless you know what your talking about. If he doesn't have retaliation just burn through his reflect from afar but Zhin is fine. People need to learn not to shoot it like they did with genji.

    I played Zhin a few times in competitive now and I'd really love to know how this works with the 2 seconds. It's peace a cake for other flanks to kill me. Billow has a cooldown of 15(!) seconds. Counter goes for 2 seconds or 3. What do I do during the 12-13 seconds until billow comes up again? Even with chronos III there are 7-8 seconds until billow is ready again. Is there a trick I don't know?

    Do not activate Billow if not BEFORE using counter + make sure your counter extension card is at level 4 + buy chronos + buy veteran to heal faster + max out billow extension card for veteran to become effective + put the Billow CD reduction on kill.

    How to counter Counter.

    Don't shoot him.

    You don't necessarily have to kill Zhin when he shows up. Make him pop his counter, ignore, he will billow away, repeat when he rears his ugly head.

    I still think the only real issue with this, is how much he can stall.
    Protect your supports please... They want support too!
    Support main/Pip main. Greatest healing: 230,070 | Current goal: 200,000 achieved! Take a look at it! Woohoo!

    Just a silly idea

    Support Pip guide here!

    Fix the Pip bugs! There are 40 of them, so can we fix them please?

    I'll try this. Zhin is fun but I die like a fly. :/

    In fact I use the selfheal legendary atm since without it the other flank just follows me and finishes me up when I use billow.

    I tried it out. It's even worse this way. They just wait till my counter is finished and kill me. Sure if I just play passive it might work, but if I attack and loose HP before I counter I am done. If I gain HP by counter and billow I can at least attack the champ following me, since my HP is full again.
