He deals a ton of damage, gives good utility(slows, %damage increase),escape and sustain. Not that of a decent poker but that can be substituted by other lanes like the AD. What gives?

He has some really bad hard counters(Fizz, Fiddle), and has slow early levels.

I used him all the time... then they heavily nerfed his Q's range and cooldown... and that made him more of a chore to play than the extreme fun he was before.

So yeah... I don't bother with him anymore

I don't think Fiddle should be counted as a counter, specially not when Vlad has Q at rank 5.

Anyways he may have counters but he is still one of the best sustain midlanes in solo Que.

Slows? Vlad has a slow on something other than his escape?

He slows people with his escape. So ya.

Except if you're using W to escape in teamfights, something is already going horribly wrong.

Vlad is still my main AP champ, I enjoy using him still, minus the occasional lane against Fiddle or Kassadin. Plus I got Blood Lord Vladimir skin recently which rekindled my love for the champ. But I agree, this past month I've played against a Vlad or two which I don't particularly remember either being good.

The top EU teams seem to ignore him now as well, although I believe the Asians were/are keen on him and I haven't seen them play in a while, so they might.
