So instead of making a QQ thread about nerfing vlad because he's OP, I'd really like some insight as to how to handle Vlad once he starts to snowball, he's really proving to me to be a huge contender in terms of survivability and damage output. His Q hits harder than almost anything I know.

Inb4 MR, hard to build items when you're getting instaganked by a tower diving vlad that laughs @ tower hits.

Been playing as:

LeBlanc, Amumu

Well.. only thing I have to say is with the new items out, he doesn't even need to snowball.

urrr jungle with amumu. shouldnt be a problem. also, if you see he used transfusion on you already dont back off. most people when playing against vlad backoff when he hurt them. his CD is like 9 second at lvl 1. and if he try to use blood pool, he used 20% of his hp to avoid one of your spell. leblanc have 4 damaging spell. its your choice

Deny him hard in lane levels 1-8

then buy some MR.

LeBlanc should be able to **** all over Vlad in mid.

LeBlanc and Kassadin counter Vlad pretty well. Both are very mobile, have pretty long silences, and LeBlanc can even snare him.

I agree with this, he can just push ridiculous amounts of AP & health at the same time now. Even when 5 people focus him he can just LOL pool.

you need to harass him a lot before lvl 9 so that he doesn't get too farmed, thats what I try to do. Sometimes it doesn't work because of various factors, other player is better, etc. but I think that is the most effective way to beat him.

Can you give some tips for how to play Kassadin against him?

I'm thinking of trying him out (he looks like wicked fun to play), and with every single person and their grandmother picking Vladimir, saying "i mid" in all chat and rushing Deathcap on him (herpaderpadurrrr), I could use some pointers before I charge into mid. Thanks!

Heavy melee dps own him hard. Esp ones who can jump and stay persistent on their target. For example Yi's charge gives vlad no breathing space.
