Is he a perfectly viable champion? Yes. Would you expect to see him played in a professional tournament? Probably not. Would he suddenly become popular and good if some well known AD carry were to play him at a notable tournament? Who knows.

Out of all AD carries, where would you rank Varus?

The list being:

Varus, Ezreal, Graves, Corki, Tristana, Caitlyn, Ashe, Kogmaw, Vayne, Sivir, Miss Fortune, Draven, Twitch, Urgot, and I guess Teemo since he can technically qualify.

Not sure what everyone is talking about but Varus is an extremely great adc. His snipe is just plain dirty and his ultimate can completely change fights.

Every ADC besides Varus and Sivir were represented at IPL 5. That may be a telling statement about where Varus stands on the ADC totem pole at the moment.

Varus doesn't need buffs. 90% of the time I play him seriously I win.

Try not maxing Q first.

Varus is perfect where he is.
If you're good and there's not much threat in lane, you can stomp your lane hard with Q max.
If not, you can go with max E trades.

He can trade with any ADC as long as you can prolong it to the point where you can get a few stacks. The AD's that beat him purely by skills include Ezreal/Graves the most simply because they can E out of your Q/E whichever you max.

He shines in teamfights the most, with a team who can protect him or if you're simply fed enough to kill them all (usually happens). With the ASPD bonus on kill/assist, you can kite like a god and kill people with max W stacks before they touch you. That said, you can't kite an assassin, so stay the hell back.

I seriously suggest an athenes on him. With it you add an extra 2% to your W not to mention the extra 40 damage, magic resist, and the important mana regen. With Varus the main thing is mana consumption so that pretty much ends it and allows you to q spam.

Am I alone here?
You're ****in crazy. He's already almost op.

Varus' ulti is better than any other ADC IMO.

Kog'maw: Damage. But be careful, because unless you're AP Kog, this is rarely actually useful and soaks up mana.
Ezreal: ... Isn't this often used for farm, and hoping you nab someone? Except they live with 3 HP and recall? It is good, but not reliable.
Graves: Nice damage; actually a good one.

I could go on, but instead:

Varus: CC that could bind an entire team in place. That type of utility is amazing, and the reason why Amumu gets banned.

This is why your elo sucks. You clearly don't understand that it's a team game.

You must be the best Varus ever!
