It's funny you should mention that because I tried him out using AP items just to see.  I really haven't been able to use his Ult that effectively since I've been playing him, so I went a different route that didn't necessarily depend on it that much and went with lich bane, AP items, and stattik shiv with a hextech blade as well.  His W does a surprising amount of damage with that build, and adding the lich bane damage to that just made it that much better.  I don't think this build would be as deadly as other champions in classic, but given the poke potential it has, I can see using it in ARAM, especially if you already have another AD carry on your team.
on PBE, there was a time The Culling did almost 10k damage as AP lucian

He does that purposely for this exact reason.

...the exact reason of encouraging people to think he's not worth listening to? That seems counter intuitive.

On the one hand, yeah, ADCs can be total douchebags.

On the other hand, so can everyone else. I've seen everything he described on every single role in games of League and I'd say that, on the whole, I see it most often on mid players with ADCs a distant second. This guy (Sky?) just comes off sounding as whiny as the people he's bitching about.

Personally I've found that it's pretty easy to get past the petty attitude some people have in game, just try to avoid investing too much emotion into it and if it's really that disturbing use the ignore button before the can get under your skin. Playing ranked also helps if you can get to good mmr where people can't afford to spend so much time typing, though there are still some toxic people and trolls in every elo. If you're playing normals though, go queue for draft (people there are a lot more tryhard and less ragy in all mmr) and don't play when people just get out of school/work.

Started spending a minute or two before opening client to consciously plan my playing and noticed clear increase in both enjoyment I get out of the game as well as in skill level in couple of months :D Still only playing with mid plats but for me it's heaps more enjoyable than playing with bronze-silver was.

I love this game! Personally my favorite characters are Teemo, Anivia, and Soraka. If I ever get approved I will gladly share my summoner name with anyone. :3

No, I got the point. I take issue with the presentation.

He is very fun, and can become very annoying to play against late game because of his damage and regeneration.

Though if a game goes really long Vlad falls off somewhat due to his total absence of CC. It makes him easier to avoid than most mages, so he has a harder time actually putting his damage and tankiness to work.

Maybe he is still at the stage where people are still learning, and so no one trash talks yet.

When you get nearer to the level cap and/or start playing Ranked, the "serious competition" mode, you start running into a lot of caustic personalities at work.
