Annie should not be higher priority than other champions who snowball hard or have incredible roam capability.

One would think someone of Gold ELO would at least see the strength of a well played Annie and why she is a good ban.

Errr Im not saying shes not strong, ofcourse shes strong but it's a selfish ban that doesnt effect the team as much as other bans, hell even leona is a better ban than annie.

Leona stuns you, and does not also take off 50+% of your health
Also Leona stun is avoidable, Annies is instant cast point and click

... my point remains valid. There are other MUCH higher priority bans that affect the team and not just bottom lane. Annie is a powerhouse support I wont deny but still doesnt have enough map-wide pressure to be a threat for the team until mid to late game teamfights.

A mia Annie is a lot like an unmarked van.

You don't know which ones give free candy or have giant burning bears inside.

You're hilarious.


Annie fills the same role as Leona except does it with fantastic range meaning she's infinitely safer, more reliable and doesn't have anywhere near the same level of counterpicks.


Annie/Taric are currently king and queen of bot lane and are truly dominant forces.


Outside of Kassadin who the hell else would you even ban? Nasus, Riven, Eve are 'fine' bans but far from instant loss if you bother to counter play or counter pick them and Jinx is fine if you wanna take her out but the point of bans is to take out champions who are incredibly strong or offer little counter play.


Do you trust your team to play a fantastic Karma every single game you don't ban Annie? Cause that's the strongest counter to Annie support (hell.. one of the only counters) and no one bothers playing her.

-Supports determine who win bot lane.
-Bot lane determines who win late game.
-Most roaming mids are nerfed hard (except kassadin)
-Most junglers not worth banning
-Top is an island but usually 1-2 bans thrown towards them already


So yes, who else would you even be using your extra bans on?

Your point is an opinion. While I usually do not ban Annie I do believe she is a valid ban. There are a lot of valid bans in the game. As far as I'm concerned there really are no 'must bans' anymore. There are simply too many champs that can have a major impact on the game to claim there are.
