How is Veigar useless? People have to stand still to capture >>> Dark Matter only works on stationary targets. No longer do i need to stun to get my full burst off!!! And farming champions is actually the faster way to gain AP, I only last hit the occasional creep with Q and still get about 100 bonus AP. Plus the lack of a lane phase and starting out with both your stun and Q, and an instant Morello's Tombe for mana let you stay in the field much longer.
Also stun blocks almost every gap on the map, and can completely encircle a tower to defend it. And with the general uselessness of AP on that map, most tanky dps champs just get Atmogs, skipping Bveil and FoN for more health and armor. This lets DFG tear their faces off. He is also a hard counter to Jax, and everybody is *****ing about him so... try it out! Veigar is the best AP nuker in the game, and Dominion levels + gold make it even more likely for his core to come out fast and get his dominant midgame started.
