How to Play with Karma as Vladimir in LoL

The Vladimir Karma synergy stats shown here demonstrate the areas of his gameplay that do better (or worse) when paired with Karma, compared to his overall stats. Significant differences are areas of focus that highlight how his gameplay changes when paired with this other champion.

Overall, Vladimir sees a large worsening in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Karma. His KDA worsened from NaN to NaN. This negative change shows that Karma helps Vladimir perform not as well in ranked League games. Yet, the small difference demonstrates that this performance change is only marginal.

When Vladimir is paired with Karma, he sees a barely noticable drop in his total damage output. This could signal that Karma does not support by providing protection for him to dish out more damage or that her participation also helps extend the match's duration. Similarly, when Vladimir is played together with Karma on the same side, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees than when he plays without Karma. This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing with Karma.

Moreover, when Vladimir plays with Karma on the same side, he often receives a little less damage than when he fights alone. Getting dealt not as much damage could indicate that Karma does a decent job of covering Vladimir in teamfights.

Is Vladimir better when played alongside Karma?

There is no ideal ally for Vladimir that will 100% of the time be his ideal teammate. Yet, overall, Karma is a relatively poor companion for Vladimir. By playing on the same team as Vladimir, she decreases their win rate by -1.1% to 48.5%. This demonstrates that there is a negative strategic relationship between Vladimir and Karma that results in them performing worse together than alone.

Karma has a lower difficulty than Vladimir. That means you don't need to be cautious when lining up Karma comrades to play with, as they will require a relatively low level of skill to play well with you.

Working on the same side, you should expect to observe an overall large increase in your team’s ability to deal magic damage. When paired, these two can deal quite a lot of AP type damage.

Conversely, by pairing Vladimir and Karma together, you will not be granting your side a great deal of sustained damage output. Plan to have other champs on your team that helps cover this gap in this pairing's kit.

Regardless of your Karma ally's ability, you need to focus on increasing your gold income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well, regardless.
