I'm not talking about the clearly overpowered release Vayne, I'm talking about the Vayne from around a year ago. And Nautilus wasn't balanced on release (no champions are) but he was overnerfed. Riven stopped seeing any real competitive play after her last round of nerfs. Riot has openly acknowledged that Akali was only nerfed because she stomped low skill players.

I think she was picked four times throughout the entire tournament.
picked twice in the finals, by (probably) the best Vayne player in the world. He did well with her in one game. Which isn't that surprising considering Bebe showed he could crush Woong with any ADC matchup, including Caitlyn.
Vayne fell from an all-around solid ADC who saw a lot of play to an extremely situational niche pick.
