Tank Annie is surprisingly effective. With lots of HP items such as Warmog's Armor and a Sunfire Cape, she can become practically invincible while Molten Shield is up.

Plus no one expects Tank Annie ever.

any champ can tank, just some excel more at being unkillable than others

being a tank is more than being a meat shield. The abilities to control the other team (taunts snares throws, etc) are what make tanks tanks.

All of the tanks and all of the casters have identical kits, and identical base stats. What is now considered a "true tank" is nothing more than an AoE tank. And all casters happen to be AoE.

See post above me about how tanking is about CC, and not base stats. Which are the same for almost all champions anywho, deviating at most a few hundred HP at level 18.
