Come on people, get it real, the champ cant be just OP or useless... it can also be good, bad, usefull, useless, etc. but above all - say that when you ACTUALLY try him out.
You are kinda right in that: not necessarily every new champion has to be op, i bought hecarim right when it came out, everyone said it was op, but in my opinion it wasn't that big deal.But it's a bit different with varus.Saw the spotlight?Cause if you saw it you should choose flash as summoner spell and you already have an escape, which should be enough if you are a decent player and play with good players of course.(wards,mapcontrol, etc..)
The thing is that ashe can have volley, but q of varus has such a long range combined with his other skills you can be standing under turret in 1v1 it won't help you most of the time. ( if you stay under turret alone against varus + any other enemy champ you have absolutely no chance to survive.) The skills of varus are so much better than ashe-s, that's why is ashe a D rank low rp champ not a 6300 A class champ.Think of the ulti of ashe.I like it very much, cause it can ensure a certain kill or mby 2 but not more, but the ulti of varus can root the whole team which is a huge difference.
Varus was a beast in the spotlight, just like Preak (ok, i've never seen a single spotlight were Preak played badly, but still)
