Who wins lane?

Who is more useful in a teamfight?

How much does one have to win by to be just as useful in a teamfight?

edit: downvotes for a question because I want to know about this matchup, GD at its finest

MS quints vlad wins

Both are useful but Darius tends to starve his team and he doesn't scale as well as most chars with all the gold he makes.

On the other hand Vlad does have one of the lowest base damage values, scaling, and his cooldowns are on the longer side of the balance, also, short range, so he doesn't have spetacular scaling either.

I think it's going to mostly come down to early game and player skill. If Vlad can make it to level 9 without getting crushed, he's going to win. The sustain and kiting power once he gets a Rylai's will let him walk all over Darius. However, Darius has a much stronger early game, and could easily zone Vlad and deny him farm and exp. If he gets ahead like this, it would be hard for Vlad to come back and win.

In teamfights, Vlad is easilly stronger, with a lot of AoE damage and a % damage amplifier for the whole team, he can win fights pretty easily, where Darius just gets kited around, and generally isn't going to crush teamfights unless he gets fed.

Lane is probably a skill matchup, with darius needing to make advantage of levels 6-8 where he is much stronger.
Vlad clearly better in teamfights, his ult is just bonkers when used properly.

Every match top lane is a skill match, if you are better then your opponet, you will win.
I've beaten Malphite as Riven,
Kennen as Singed,
Vlad as Garen, ect.

If Vlad can farm safely through mid game without getting pulled and harassed too much, he should easily win. After a revolver, Tabi, and maybe a dorans shield, it would be incredibly hard for Darius.

Vlad's team fight is also better as his late game is a lot stronger.

Vlad can beat darius in lane. Vlad is significantly more useful in team fights.

A bad Vlad with no items can Ult on the enemy team, and then pool under an escaping enemy... and have a significant impact on a team fight.

A bad Darius... feeds the enemy team, and has little impact on a team fight.

Lol really you think his c/ds are long? He doesn't scale? low base damage on what? On a move that heals you? Do you even play vlad?
