How does one lane against a champion with an aoe skillshot that has twice the range of their own AAs?

1) It's easier to get hit by her ball if you stand close to it. Try not to make friends with one.
2) Think about how the other orianna is going to place the ball. An Orianna matchup is defined by how well an orianna can aim her ball and how the other player dodges her ball
3) Her auto-attacks hurt much more than usual thanks to her passive. Keep this in mind when trading.
4) When she misses her q + e combo, that's your cue to strike back. But don't overdo it; her CD's are relatively short.
5) Her ult has a somewhat predictable animation before it comes into effect. You can flash-dodge this if you're fast enough

Precisely the problem with ori. You won't win trades "unless she misses" oh my god, what if she knows how to land the easymode aoe skillshot, because it's too fast for you to dodge anyways.

More seriously, Command: Attack isn't that fast. 1200 is pretty slow-moving. Like, Light Binding level slow. That is, if Light Binding dealt less damage, had lower AP ratios, had shorter range by 350, and didn't snare two targets. Then you'd basically have what Command: Attack is.

Command: Attack deals reduced damage for every enemy it hits. Put minions in the way of it and the damage drops down to practically nothing. Then have fun with Ryze's instant snare, which, once again, deals higher damage than Command: Attack.
