I don't have the character myself to test and can't find any thread about it so I guess it has not, but I'm still looking for a confirmation.

The other day I was playing a game with a Vladimir that turretdived another and just as the turret shot the last shot, he used pool and still died. I tried to figure out what else could've killed him, thinking if a DoT could've been placed on him and so on, but couldn't think of anything, he himself also went ''wtf''.

Then today I was playing a match with a Vladimir saying they changed how the pool works, when we were speaking of the other team's Crowd Control.

Now, is it any different?

As it stands:

Any targeted, (Non skillshot) damage or CC ability will continue to hit, damage, and CC vlad if he is in pool, assuming he was TARGETED before he pooled. He is untargatable after he pools, however whatever projectiles flying still hit.

Hmm, was pretty sure he used to be able to dodge stuns like Sion's, even after the projectile was going for him.

Played against him as Anivia before, and if I used Frostbite he pooled and seemed to have taken no damage from the actual skill.

Yeah, it still pops projectiles, but not all.

He takes damage from DoTs that are still on him.

So things such as ignite, fiddles drain, malz DoT and ult, etc. If they're already applied, they'll keep going.

He pooled to late. You need a perfect timing for pool. Also Alistar can knock Vlad up in pool, if not right timed, and many other skills pwn him too.

As Vlad player, you have to know enemy skills and CD in perfection Dieing to a turret, that just can be such a troll who QQ ed in the Forum about Vlad, and then bought him because he thought hes really that easy, lulz.

Pool isn't "press W for sure escape", dont care how much dumbs are telling that.

yup he pooled too late, you have to pool before the tower shot fires, not while it's in the air, if you want to dodge it

You cannot avoid Turret hits, however you can avoid almost anything (some exeption are Kassadin's silence and Katarina's bounces
