Fizz can last long enough to get to his ultimate?
News to me. Zed W to E, warp to W, E again, autoattack. What's Fizz going to do? Q to you? Congratulations, he's now in much more danger than he was in before. Zed E's again, autos again. Dead Fizz.
Same situation, except Fizz E's away the moment Zed hits him the first time. No loss for Zed, he swaps positions and recharges the cooldown of his W by using E in the middle of creeps. What's that? Zed's pushing the lane? He doesn't care, he can harass Fizz under the tower. More importantly, he can knock Fizz down to such a health level that Fizz literally CANNOT farm without being in instant-kill range.
Oh look, Zed has his ultimate. Fizz has his E. Zed never uses his ultimate, because he doesn't need it against Fizz, because Fizz has to get into Zed's range to do anything. Then Zed forces Fizz to use his E to survive. Oh look, suddenly Zed's ultimate is perfect for the situation.
Oh, Fizz is initiating on Zed? Oh look, there's the Fizz ultimate. Zed ultimates to Fizz. Oh, he dropped Fizz's ultimate. Fancy that, Zed can do the same thing Fizz does. Oh, look, Zed is on top of Fizz now, and two hits and Fizz is practically dead. Oh, Fizz E'd away. Zed swapped positions with his R to gain extra distance. Fizz Flashed. Zed used W. Zed kills Fizz.
They play the same way in lane, except that Zed has better cooldowns and doesn't need to stand on top of Fizz in order to hit him.
