Best. News. All. Day.

Now I can finally bust out my second favorite solo top without getting queue-dodged/owned. Whoo-hoo!

You realize Morello has already stated that he knows Vlad is weak, right? Even the ONE person who used him in the recent tournament regrets picking him, because it ended up being a hindrance to the team.

If your team loses because of vlad, you or your team sucks, plain and simple.

The problem is that Vlad is a lot more toxic than Morde. You know how everybody hated how Morde was so hard to push out of lane? Vlad was the same way, but basically ungankable. I don't think anybody wants to play against that again.

For the longest time, Morde was considered the best pubstomper, and was one of the most annoying champs in this game to lane against. Just as you say, so was Vlad for a few months. With all things considered; if they were both huge pains to lane against, why take priority with a champ who had the longest run?

I'm not a design expert but I think Morde's kit is easier to mess around with than Vlad's without making enormous changes to the champion's design fundamentals. Vlad's kit...is just really poorly designed, finding a balance between OP and total garbage is difficult.

I don't disagree, but they have had so much time to figure things out since vlad was torn to shreds.

Because Morde's harder to break. He couldn't sustain himself well without buying regen or spellvamp, he has no CC, he has no escapes, and he's fairly squishy when his shield is down. He pushes hard when you're not playing very carefully, and he's very susceptible to ganks. Vlad has free sustain with one of the best escapes in the game. You couldn't push him out, and you couldn't gank him either. He was much more frustrating to lane against, imo.

And Morde was considered a good pubstomper for a long time, but Vlad had been nerfed for about a month or so before people realized that Morde had any competitive merit. I think he was actually slated for buffs before people started running him in tournaments.
