Playing against Vi is a nightmare

Vi, conceptually is pretty cool. She's always yelling and slamming and punching which is great! It sounds cool and it looks cool. Playing against her is not fun. It doesn't feel like, wow that Vi skillfully bested me because the player is better. It feels like wow a random shield just saved her and wow she alone chain cc'd me for like 2-3 seconds, in a game where burst is pretty much THE most important thing, that is forever.

Mostly my issues are about her shield popping up and the amount of ground she can cover in almost zero time.

From an enemy perspective there is no clear way of telling when her shield is building up or going to appear, you just see her get really low on health, you think of yay I've got her now and suddenly a shield appears and suddenly she uses her double burst and you are down half your health and then suddenly her shield appears again and then suddenly you are dead. While Vi somehow just rested around 200 life during the whole exchange. That is some Poppy **** right there.

My second point Flash Q Ult = about 14,000 miles of land covered, and you cannot escape. At least with Caitlins ult it can be intercepted, with Malphs ult you can dodge it.

End Rant.

You can dodge her Q
And once you do that, and she has no ult, just kite her

Still, her Q doesn't require a target and has a fairly long range. At least with many other gap closers you have to actually have someone to click on.

Vi ult is nothing like Malphite ult

more like WW ult for me, but shorter

people in her way can dodge it, there's even a huge line telling everyone where she's running

Vi's ulti is pretty slow so if u are ulted you can run to your tower or your team and punish her.
Shield isnt that great cus if u used a skill a couple seconds before you attack an enemy you wont be able to use it.
Also dodge Q ward the bush so it's easier to see when she is charging.

I want to like her but I kind of find her boring. She's very all-or-nothing, anyone smart won't get hit by her E in lane.

Vi has a weak laning phase. You just have to get used to her.

Duh! It's because Blitzcrank lacks CC!
