I was last pick mid, enemy first picked Diana. I picked Annie because she has everything she needs to absolutely destroy Diana. So I pick Annie, and first pick on my team starts raging hard how Annie is a trash champ and that I need to l2p and unistall... LMAO. After much profanity, he queue dodged.

Funny thing is, the next game guy picks Diana again, I pick Annie, and proceed to shut in down in lane 0-4 by the 15 minute mark. Some people will need to open their eyes. More champs are viable than your shallow perspective thinks.

I know Morgana is quite good against Diana since you can just combo off if ever she jumps on you, and Black Shield more or less breaks Moonfall

Annie? I dunno, usually people that play obscure champions are good with them (see: Heimerdinger, Twitch, Poppy)

This actually. If annie has Roa/Rylais/Abyssal or any combo of the 3, instead of derpcap/derpfg she beats most dianas, leaving skill out of the equation.

Actually most Glass-Cannon anything mids I see end up failing terribly.

Nope. Annie has a shield that reflects Diana's basic attacks and raises my defense. When she gets close, I just Q W her with a stun too and walk away. Once we hit 6, if she tried to burst me down, I just drop my bear and combo and big LOL.

Why do people think annie is useless? suddenly 2 chances for AoE stun unviable.

except any non brain dead Diana will wait for your stun to go off, then proceed to combo your face in.


then return to farming passively.
