I was just watching your last game. If you don't mind a bit of constructive criticism, you should really consider not blowing Glacial Storm and Flash Frost at the same time at the very beginning of the fight unless you're SURE the extra couple hundred burst it gives you is going to score a kill. Frostbite is by far Anivia's most important damage ability, and it has a shorter cooldown than either of the other two. By not conserving a chill source to use later on, you're wasting Frostbite cooldowns and gimping your sustained damage pretty badly.

thats not always true. if u are fighting with any physical carry in close range, u have to keep glacial storm on to avoid getting owned, unless u r sure u can burst him down before he burst u down.

glacial storm gives 20% aoe aspd slow. i was fighting olaf with massive lifesteal 1v1 and only got to kill him with glacial storm on. this holds true against master yi, trynd, and so on.

The ideal situation with Anivia is typically to open with Glacial Storm into a Frostbite, wait a few seconds, then hit with Flash Frost followed by a second Frostbite (with Glacial Storm being left on or turned off at your leisure). What I was seeing Thorn do a lot was Glacial Storm, Frostbite, and then immediately throw Flash Frost as a parting shot (and then somebody else would show up four seconds later and he couldn't use Frostbite again because he had no chills left).

If you find yourself in a situation where you desperately need Flash Frost or Glacial Storm for the CC application alone, then that's a different story, of course.
