You can snowball in teamfights just by getting assists or even better a kill, how is it useless? It does a good job with farm too. The amount of times he's passive has saved me during some fights is just ._. Surge works well with it too. Its just a giant explosion of att speed.

I guess the complaint about his passive is that it only works if you were winning the teamfight. In that case it just lets you win harder.

It's also easier to cs with varus.

Same thing could be said about Katarina. Nobody complains about her passive being useless.

During the lane phase, it works like Graves passive. Try to fight when its up and you'll have the advantage.

There is a difference being that Kat is able to deal massive damage to multiple targets at once. Varus can't.

Kat is also an ap mage that has to be in melee range to pull off her damage and her damage output is severely cut off when she is cc'd out of her ult,

She is mellee and has no CC. Varus has 2 CC's and actually does a decent amount of damage. I don't know why people think Varus is helpful. What are you kids maxing on him?

The problem is that you have to get a kill or an assist, and the fight could be over by the time that happens. Compared to a steriods like Trist, Ez, and Graves, Varus' passive/steroid is very lackluster late game.

On a side note, I think shifting around his kit a bit would make more sense play style- and lore-wise. Give him an on-hit passive, and then give him an active steroid, maybe with a passive AS increase on a kill/assist.
