Hello everyone !
I have a question about Vi vs. Riven.
I was now saving IP for buying Riven, but today I tried VI on free champion rotation, and saw, that I like this champ as good as Riven. They have few things in common, and gameplay looked alike too (you may disagree, thats just my opinion :) But to find out is it worth it - changing Riven to Vi, I would like to hear your opinions. Which would you choose first, and why? If you can I would appreciate pros and cons for each vs. other .

Well I never used Riven before but I do know that Vi is totally worth the buy. I mean this chick can kick some serious ***(5v5 and 3v3) if used right. She's super good at the beginning with the Q move if your able to hit it. Then you can farm easy with E and do some range damage. The W is awesome and has saved my life many times when fighting 1v1. Plus the passive helps to in team fights. Vi is easy to build also. But for the cons..all I can say from personal experience is that I can't get away sometimes cause she moves slow or my Q is on CD. But I don't any others Haha

She's actually pretty powerful, she was just buggy as hell before this patch.

How is she the worst champion in the game? Cause she actually is pretty cool and strong..Or unless your talking about Riven then I never used her.

What do you mean she was buggy?

I'm by no means THAT good myself, but I've played both Riven and Vi. Vi is alot of fun. Her skills are funky to be sure, but they are incredibly painful and great all around.

Riven is a great hard hitter. You gotta get used to her combos (specifically Valor + Ki Burst + Broken Wings). If played right, Riven can dominate a team. I haven't played Riven post-patch, though, and I know they've done some stuff to her.

Both would be a great buy, so its a hard call there. I already have Riven, myself.

Don't bother comparing Vi and Riven, even with these latest nerfs, Riven is a legitimately viable champion and Vi simply is not. Even after the bug fixes Vi is incredibly underwhelming at all points of the game and in all her viable roles.

She's a subpar top lane and a fairly weak jungler. Her only real chance for viability is in jungle but literally provides nothing to a team. Her Q has pretty good damage, assuming you can ever land it, her W is nice baring that people are actually bad enough to let her get 3 consecutive auto attacks on you, and her E is a pathetic attempt to give her the slightest bit of range and wave clear. She's pretty much a champion that is totally reliant on her ultimate, and basically her ultimate is the only thing making her not totally worthless as a champion.

Why not play Warwick? There is a champion with a similar ult who is essentially the same thing as Vi, maybe a little more viable because his ult cooldown is much lower. In his current state, Warwick is pretty much only a champion because of his ultimate, the same is true for Vi

Thanks everyone for responses. For all I have read definately Riven > Vi. I still have a week to play a with Vi while theres a free week, but looks like this champ is not worth 6300 ip, while there are others on "to buy" list .
