If you're doing that well early, your competition is pretty weak. If I don't lose my lane (tower goes first) my competition is probably too easy. Most skilled adcs know Vayne's early game is weak and apply pressure accordingly.

The thing about Vayne is, you don't WANT her to have a late game. When people feed her early, it's extra punishing because she gets her late game, by start of mid game, as any fed person does. The difference is, then she's crapping all over your entire team. Tanks and all because of true damage.

Vayne is a hyper carry like kog maw. Besides Tumble, condemn (best if into a wall), and summoner spells vayne doesn't have really any escapes. She relies on positioning and correct tumbling during fights. Her team has to protect her and CC correctly. She is weak early game, and while a pain mid game if at least farmed she is containable. It's her late game like Kog Maw. She's pretty weak early game, and that's where she needs to be shut down. Even Late game she's still gonna be squishy to an extent and will get blown up if focused and caught. I don't think she's OP. She's just one of those champs that if played correctly can carry like a boss.

If you are doing well then that usually means you have good mechanics, positioning, timing, and an opportunist. All good attributes. The flip side could also mean you're facing competition that is not use to the finer nuances of the game like focusing, coordinating, and executing plays they need to execute. All in all good job on your Vayne play, I assure you the higher you climb the stiffer the competition will be when you play Vayne. She's a tough S.O.B but can get shut down early, and usually needs to make it to that late game mark to really carry the game in the end.

vayne is a mechanically intensive champion.

that being said, we can't gauge her being OP off of your normals games. People don't really maintain a competitive mentality in normals and they dont try counter play. There's also the lack of picks-counterpicks.

Her early game got a slight buff with the last patch - but its pretty clear that your competition couldn't handle the garen in lane with you.

You had zone control, something Vayne's rarely get. Poking Garen is usually pointless with his passive, and even if they take you out, Garen would probably finish them off.

Run her over a period of time with various supports against typical comps bot lane and you'll see just what we're talking about.

She has one of the lowest win rates because her short range means you need to be able to not only possition correctly, but have a front line that knows how to protect you.

Plus, there's always the fact you need to be an orb walking master to utalize her true damage.
