    Vladimir is not a bad pick but I can imagine ppl calling him useless because Vlad certainly is not the easiest champion to play with. Hard champion + hard early game can lead to losing your lane easily.

    I've never heard anyone saying that he is useless but. he isn't in a really good position either.

    You don't have to get WotA on Vladimir, Hextech Revolver is often all you need.

    I've certainly seen some useless Vlad players, to say the least. Me and False were duoing and we had a Vlad who didn't build even WotA.

    I think that Vlad gets a bad reputation because most people don't know how to play him well. I actually just purchased Vlad, and have already had some very positive outcomes using him both top and mid lanes. He is certainly difficult, but has incredible sustain and an awesome late game. I've found that nearly any champion is subject to heckling from players who have had bad experiences in the past with said champ. I strongly agree with Silesia Blaster's quote (on this post) about there being no "useless" champs . . . There are only useless summoners.

    He's just useless when behind. Very little CC and his only real utility spell is Hemoplague, which has damage amplification that most people don't notice during team fights. Most other top laners are tankier and/or have better CC so they're more "useful" even if they didn't win lane.

    I don't mind Vladimir as long as the team comp isn't completely devoid of CC.

    Vladimir isn't useless. He isn't easy champion to play, and if your team haven't got any cc enemy can run quite easy from him, as he isn't chaser type. Most of people says something like that about champion, when they see often him low - and Vladimir with his weak early game and bad times when he is behind may be considered by them that way.

    There is no such thing as "useless" champion - there is only bad way to play of any champion and eventual lack of skill of player before computer.

    Vladimir takes some items and levels to get rolling. He is also rather short ranged which can make some match-ups problematic, but in the right match-ups he is oppressive (e.g. vs. Nasus).

    I've been seeing more of him at the Bronze / Silver level with the increase in base health regeneration from 100% to 150% on Spectre's Cowl.
