The thing about champions that aren’t considered old-school is that they eventually lose the popularity they once had during release, and become underrated and underused. Thankfully, Riot finds a way to remind summoners that these champions exist by updating them, therefore making them relevant again. The latest one to get this treatment is Zac. You know, the green blob guy who’s mostly a tank? Log in those League of Legends accounts of yours a few months later and see how they’ve changed Zac for the better.
Shrieve, one of Riot Games’s developers, have decided that it’s time to do some tweaks on Zac so that he can go back to the metagame. And right now there are a lot of things he want to change with the champion.
First off would be how Zac has to use all of his skills in a single burst instead of spacing the usage of one before another in order to make him feel more strategic and disrupt the enemy team a bit longer. Another problem he currently has is that after initiating, Zac’s play style is reduced to just using Q and W, which kind of makes him a bore.

Shrieve would also like to make two of his skills more distinct. There’s his Stretching Strike, which is hardly able to set itself apart from Unstable Matter, and his Let’s Bounce!, which is a messier version of Wukong’s Ultimate. Riot wants to have these changed to not only make Zac’s role more defined, but also make his personality and theme be evident in his skills.
And last but definitely not least, in line with what the planned tank role revamp for League of Legends account, Zac’s going to have his damage output lowered a bit (and rightfully so), and instead make him more focused on absorbing hits and doing crowd control.
Looks like Zac is shaping up to have one heck of a comeback. And to make you even more pumped, Riot’s got one teaser for you League of Legends accounts owners:
“P.S. we’re not supposed to give you details yet… but yes, his voice now pitches up and down as he changes in size”
