I mean they are so easy to bait and cost so many points I tend to see them as easy victory points.

They are far from a point and click unit and personally if they do well against you then your opponent must have deployed well with screens and the like or you just let them get into your line.

I can't understand what the problem is.

And no my regular Vampire counts opponents are not rubbish. Well one is but the other two are great.
