Actually, Vlad is far worse on 3v3 than 5v5. Early game vlad has poor damage, okay laning, and terrible teamfights. In addition, the lower number of people means less people to take advantage of his Ult's increased damage.
Vlad needs farm to do well, but on 3's, there's a lot of other objectives that come before farming. For example, Dragon (280 gold per player, kills are 300 each). Many decent teams can do dragon at lv5 or 6. This is before Vlad can effectively fight.
