He's pointing out what i've already stated w/ the nerfs there is no reason to pick LB over other mages who can do the same dmg to more heros. her dmg should have been left alone she was a SINGLE target mage who could burst ONE target down and if they had mr it would take more than one rotation to do such.

Because I prefer to enjoy myself. AoE Rape Champions generally aren't all that entertaining to use besides the odd pentakill.

Well then you're not "playing to win", you're "playing to enjoy yourself", in which case everything about comparative strengths of champions is irrelevant. If you're just playing to have fun, go play Eve or anything really, it doesn't matter.

not necessarily. Vlad is still a very strong mage and by no means bad. I'd take a good vlad over a good annie simply for the ult, but that's just me.

@earlier post: Vlad is not widely considered to be "okay", he's a strong champion still.

I haven't played against an Annie in 2 weeks. You'd think for a mage that supposedly does way better than anyone else, people would play her.

Then again, she isn't way better than other mage champs and in fact gets schooled 1vs1 against several other mages.

Because Annie is boring. I also rarely see tanks (alos boring) in solo queue. Are tanks bad?
1v1 MAGE BATTLE is irrelevant in team fight centered high level play

Wait... I thought the point of mages is that they deal magical damage...

This isn't DotA, or most hard carries would be out-DPSed by Soraka autoattacks until 40 minutes in.

Riot employees have also stated that Annie is their quintessential 'balanced' mage and that Tristana is their most balanced ranged DPS.
