you ban garen and vlad not because you don't know how to deal with them. But because there is a pretty good chance your team will walk into bushes or stand on vlads red puddle of doom.

Pretty much all Garen lost was a little base MS and some early game tower diving potential. Apparently thats all it took for people to move on to a new FotM champ.

As far as Vlad goes, he's just annoying.

Garen doesn't really bring anything to the table that can't be replicated by other off-tanks like Xin, Olaf, Udyr etc. Banning him is unlikely to affect a team comp much. Similarly, Vlad's main contribution is AoE magic damage, which can be gotten through other sources.

Compare the more common practice of banning Amumu, Galio, Sona. There aren't many champs that can replicate their 1.5 to 2 seconds of "Your entire team sits there and does nothing" fight-changing ability. Twitch gets bans in low Elo because it's ridiculously easy to feed him n00bs, and in high Elo because no other ranged character carries quite as hard as him. Morgana's Black Shield and massive disable power, Shen's 'screw your gank' ult and taunt...these unique abilities that change the game at any phase are what causes bans, or should.

Which is why I facepalm whenever I see Mordekaiser banned.
