The community is currently thanks to Riot Meddler, who is giving off waves of information for multiple patches coming out this season. According to Meddler, the next champion to get an update is Vladimir.
In the message boards, Meddler went on to say that “Vlad’s probably a 7.3 candidate rather than 7.2. Vlad’s solo queue performance is poor, but around the same point it’s been in the past when he’s still been pick/ban in organized play. We definitely want to improve his solo queue state, but want to get a look at initial competitive play in the next couple of weeks to help guide changes (e.g. how much should we focus on mechanics changes that reduce the discrepancy between the two contexts versus just adding power?), hence 7.3 rather than 7.2.”
Vladmir was a big part of the metabin some regions last year, however he saw nerfs that took him out of the mid lane meta. Vladmir receiving changes could bring him back to the meta for solo queue and pro play if his sustain and damage is increased.
