Why is Ryze not considered Top Tier?

Ryze has HUGE AoE damage, a single target stun ( for the carry ), Spell Flux will bounce and reduce enemy magic resistance, and he is an amazing ganker all game...

Can anyone answer this for me?

1) Don't post that "signature" at the end of your post. It makes you look lame.

2) Ryze has horrible, horrible, range.

3) His "stun" is actually a "snare," meaning it only locks you in place. That player can still cast spells and stuff.

4) He's good, but not Annie/Anivia good.

anivia with mejais, annie, veigar, ryze, everyone else

you messed it up quite a bit.
nuke wise:
viegar>annie>anivia

at the VERY BEGINNING of the game, anivia does hit rather hard, but everyone catches up/surpasses around level 6
anivia is more sustained damage/support/cc champ after everyone hits level 8

@OP

because of ryze's range and survivability.
in order for him to do this damage, he has to be in a danger zone.
because he is squishy, he will die fast.
so he needs to do damage really fast before you can kill him, and then run away.
the problem with that is if someone throws a single stun at him - his nuke wont be complete and they will kill him.
