Vayne would start chunking Darius, he would Apprehend, she'd Condemn and then Tumble away, and then chunk him in safety, due to Apprehend's CD.

Today I vs'ed a vayne when I was playing darius. I was so annoyed of how I couldn't reach vayne because she would always kite me. Darius can't reach her because he has short range. Melee vs ranged champions will always be hard because ranged champions will kite melee champions. It's whether if you have the skill to not die and make a come back to win the game. The damage that darius does is his Q. If he can't land that... Vayne will wreck.

They play in different lanes. The only time you'd ever see this matchup in a lane would be at very low ELO, which means that the winner doesn't really reflect the champion's abilities.

Voyboy plays Vayne top. Sure, low elo stuff.

take exhaust?? flash??call jungle gank?? use brush??? Darius wins against Vayne easy. Vayne is wayyyy too late game to lane against Darius-the motherfcking early game monster.

Darius early vayne late. There's really not much to compare here.

Also vayne top or adc top is becoming more common.

I have actually played this matchup in the top lane as Vayne. Let me tell you all that Darius can actually somewhat zone Vayne.

Vayne is super reliant on aggresion and poking to win her lane. Often Vayne must auto+auto-tumble to perform her burst combo of procing silver bolts. Thus, she must chase to trigger her main source of uncounterable poke.

Darius can very easily counter this primary Vayne mechanic by landing a hook and bursting the **** outta her. Thus pre-6 this is more of a farm lane with a very slight advantage to Darius.

Between level 6 and when Vayne gets Blade of the ruined king, This is a relatively even lane. Vayne has decent poke and much better kiting potential with her abilities including her ult. However, Darius suddenly gains much more kill potential with his ult. However, Vayne gets a gradual advantage as her Q's cooldown becomes lower and lower.
If Vayne lands a stun on Darius with around 50% hp she can kill him. If Darius lands a hook onto a 70% hp Vayne he can kill her.

After getting Blade is when Vayne becomes uncatchable. Now Darius has no hope in sticking to Vayne since she can knock him away, and use tumble and blade's movement speed to kite him hard.
