Why do people say Vlad is bad early?

Safe lane thanks to pool, Lots of sustain if you're not getting stacks (which you shouldn't be until you have some spellvamp), and easy CSing under tower just makes him such a great and easy farm lane that scales magnificently into lategame.

I love playing Vlad but even at my mediocre elo a decent top and or jungler will make your early game hell for any number of reasons.

If they're pushing to tower they're doing it wrong. Very wrong.

He doesn't have a bad early (good at csing, high sustain, a powerful (but HIGH CD) escape) but any lane bully will smash him.

Easy csing under tower? Try to cs with Q on a 7 second cd and E doing 80 damage and screwing up the rest of the creeps and that awesome auto attack damage

I am bad at csing (normally about 50 or 60 at ten, if not being harassed or countered) but I can normally do very well Vlad, under tower or not. He has VERY natural last hitting, and if you can't you're not that great. :1

he is squishy, his Q is weak an on a long CD, you cant build stacks of tides because he has no health, his pool will also be on a long cd, much longer than your opponent's gapcloser/CC.

As soon has he is level 7-9, he gets a huge spike in lane power. He can just spam Q to heal and then stack tides to do damage and wave clear.

Pretty much anyone with a gap closer and cc can just bully Vlad pre 6

Myster is very correct, though. Seriously, lane bullies f*** with Vlad hard. Still, a good Vlad should be able to passively cs without getting destroyed.
