From what I understand, Vlad is being nerfed not because he is OP (the developers believe he is balanced, even Morello said this), but because low Elo can't handle him and high Elo is angry that a fairly simple champion has not yet been made intentionally underpowered like Mordekaiser and Garen. Riot does make certain champions intentionally underpowered. Phreak announced once that they nerfed Shaco until the Riot staff considered him underpowered, and someone said the same thing about Heimer.

Obviously, Garen and Morde were nerfed despite being balanced or actually terrible champions because bad players can't deal with them. Vlad is very good at slaughtering poor players, better than Garen ever was. He approaches old Mordekaiser in his destructive power when placed below 1500 Elo. However, to hit Vlad but not the queen of slaughtering noobs is just stupid. If you're going to nerf him for destroying bad players, make Akali trash too.

I'm sorry, but my Akali takes some merit of skill to play.

Some champs excel at it though, and Riot has nerfed them tons. See: Garen, Morde, Vlad.

Dude, you know who excels at destroying bad players? Katarina.

Now if you tell me that Kat needs a nerf, for god's sake... \:

I main them both. Akali is much easier to demolish a team with. Neither needs a nerf.

Nerf Rammus, nerf Vlad, nerf Pantheon, nerf Eve.

The only remaining "hard pub stomper" is Akali.
