My server is overrun with purple Zems! Zems in arena, mine, crucible, everywhere! It's a Zem apocalypse! You are insane if you think Zem is not OP. Every Arena fight is how to kill their Zem as fast as possible. It may involve having your own Zem, it may not, but you gotta kill the other Zem fast. Ever seen 4/5 heroes dead, Zem eats 3 ults, then proceed to kill everyone?
How can anyone think he's balanced? How many other TANKS can output the amount of damage Zem does? Being counter-able is not evidence of balance, the thing is, Zem is SO MUCH BETTER than other tanks. I'm not OK with that, because I see other tanks being left in the dust. If this continues, how long til they come out with a <Insert role here> SO OP you can't be assed to use anything else? How long til everyone has the same teams?
Besides, we all know Zem is inspired by *ndy*ng from you-know-where, it's just funny seeing him output so much damage and steamrolling heroes, "lol they're all being pushed to death!" Be glad he doesn't have *ndy*ng's damage amp.
Yeah, usually I dont have troubles against him. Most of times I have the ultis charged, the other team not, and it gives me the upper hand. But its the first time that the enemy Zem starts with the Ulti and summons so many zombies so fast. Still, I have Zem with the Ulti charged, same lvl, and mine dies in a blink, while the other survived all I could throw to him (Garrik, Gale, Dokras, Slim, FH, Riley, Ethera...). Maybe it was because the other team has Leon and Gale, and both gives physical buffs? Im not sure, but if the zombies could be buffed... that explain why they were destroying my team so fast. Finally I beat them, but fighting it twice.
Let me guess, both of your Zems are purple? Zems poop out zombies from taking damage, so it's clear the opposing Zem took more damage before your Zem has taken much damage, hence he got more zombies. You need to be careful what ults you unleash against Zems, best is single target, high damage, to just kill him off as soon as possible; the worst thing you can do is get him to poop zombies then AOE so he gets healed and BUFFED. I've had my Zem survive many AOE ults (Jasmine, Firebird, Dokras, etc.) then just snowball1v5.
If you can't burst him down in the beginning, keep him interrupted constantly until some assassin (Ezio?
) can deal with him. Ezio is decent (at purple at least) because he does all this damage without Zem being able to hit back. Then again if Zem got buffed out the wazoo from dead zombies, then Ezio just does his cool thing and falls backward.
