Vayne's actual nerfs were a slap on the wrist, especially as far as late game is concerned. IIRC they increased her ult cooldown at lower ranks and changed some stuff with condemn, fairly minor. What really hurt her was the Corki fotm and now the Lucian fotm, as generally speaking, both have a fairly easy time laning against Vayne.
Also, Annie support is not fun to deal with as Vayne, and Annie support got big right around when I stopped seeing her. Early damage and kill potential make Vayne's life miserable, and the fotm in bot lane has those things aplenty right now, and has had them for a while.
this pretty much, it's not what they did to Vayne, it's what they added. She didn't get the nerf bat, she got the... got... she got the... the riot bat? idk they made new things that make things terrible for her early LOLE
the pieces are there someone make a joke out of it
Yeah, now instead of Vayne you get to see Lucian (the new Ez) or Jinx (the new every other ADC all in one) every game.
Lucian is the WORST ADC in the whole game. He does have the best poke in the game though but my God is his ult worthless. Even the announcers at the winter LCS thing (to get back into the 2014 LCS) were making fun of him because his ult does nothing.
The only good thing the ult is for, is probably taking Dragon or Baron. Seriously. That's it. Because in lane you will almost never get an effective ult out of it. And late game all your team needs to do is separate for a moment and there you, no damage.
