First, anivias stun beats annies in cooldorn and range and damage. It can hit from far away in the right circumstances while being a guaranteed hit at closer ranges formassive damage at a 1:1 ratio and can be used very frequenly.

Second, anivias egg provides insane survivability by doubling her effective hp and forcing the opposing team to dedicate that much more time to kill you.

Third, anivias ult isn't high damage until late game, but is an aoe slow that can be done repeatedly and can also support her combo as well as annies does.
first, i don't care what the "cooldorn" is like on anivia's stun, the AoE is much smaller and almost impossible to hit more than one person unless you are facing a bunch of people who are literally hugging each other's nuts. annie's stun is bigger and therefore better.

second, you can IGNORE anivias egg, END OF STORY. when shes in egg, finish off the rest of her team and then 5v1 her because she's a moron like you who thinks egg is godlike through the entire game. also have fun waiting five minutes to fight the enemy team because your egg isn't up.

third, annie's ultimate is high and constant damage throughout the ENTIRE game. anyone who stands in anivia's ultimate is an idiot, and once she turns it off it has a cooldown just like any other spell.

ps. .75 second stun is obviously comparable to a 1.75s stun right?

How has noone mentioned that you also need MS quints as Anivia unless you want to move slower than the Golem, so no Magic Pen or HP quints for you.

Plus annie easily picks up blue after she drops her tibbers for a kill. Anivia has to ping like a fiend hoping someone will come help, good luck with that in solo queue

I prefer Anivia simply because she doesn't need to wait for an ultimate to cooldown before bringing very powerful burst. Her AP ratios are great, her cooldowns as a whole are low and she can constantly burst repeatedly, bringing the same amount of power with each burst. Annie on the other hand, has one load. After that, her spells don't do anywhere near as much damage as it did in the initial burst. This prevents the 'Make Annie use Tibbers and then attack their team when it's down!' situation.

Anivia's range also makes her a greater ganker in my opinion, Annie is rather obvious although she can use Disintegrate for a homing stun.

The simple fact is Anivia cannot do everything Annie can just like Annie can't do everything Anivia can.

People choose their champions for several reasons. You can choose a champion solely based on their looks if you want.

Uh, anyone who takes movespeed quints on anivia is dumb. Also anyone who takes any boots other than swiftness or mobility on anivia is also dumb. Anivia 100% needs those boots, end of story. Without them she is disgustingly slow and you will be no use to your team because you'll always be catching up to everyone else. Edit: and she doesn't need golem untill around level 10 or so, and even there it's a luxury and isn't needed. By the time you ahould be getting golem
as anivia you can easily solo it yourself.


And a .75 second stun is all you need to explode someone, aanything longer is a crutch.
