Passive needs a nerf imo


Press R + E = someone is dead, i dont see how that can be hard to play especially when she has a free GA.

I can't think of any reasonable matchup in which Anivia would be able to kill someone by just using R followed by E, unless the person you were fighting just stood there in your ult for a while and you had the mana to maintain it until they died. You need more than just R and E to kill someone.

I certainly hope she gets nerfed...hard.

Before all of the kids start telling me how low her survivability is, I am fully aware of how low her survivability is.

Decent teamwork in coordinating Anivia kills makes her balanced. She has high damage but low survivability, especially when CCed, specifically coordinating a stun and a silence should destroy her.

However, she is an excellent pubstomper against uncoordinated teams. Riot has made it a habit of balancing a game around the lowest common denominator, as we have seen with Mordekaiser, who was not nearly as good at pubstomping as a half decent Anivia is to begin with. Mordekaiser has been nerfed to complete and utter uselessness because of this, even though he was never used at a high elo except for a select few of the absolute best players, like grandjudge. Excellent Anivias have always been used at high elo.

Wards have been nerfed for a similar reason, because the disparity between good players that use wards and terrible ones that do not use wards was too great, and Riot did not like the fact that your Brazilian teammate was getting ganked every time he stepped into the lane.

If tomorrow, she was nerfed to equal uselessness, I would be extremely happy.

I have never heard anivia referred to as a pubstomper.

Hey, you know, whatever happens, Riot may nerf her, whether we like it or not.
Truth stinks, but yeah.

The reason she won't get nerfed, is because theres very few good ones. I dunno if shes balanced... I mean she does a TON of damage with ulti + e and double proccing Q. Not to mention that wall, is a game winning skill. One good/bad wall can make you win/lose

But, she might be a TAD strong, but if nerfs come, they need not be huge, maybe a small nerf.
