So when I play ranged DPS(I'm usually Tristana if I play this role), sometimes I get matched up with Annie. I can't figure out how to do well against this particular hero. Because after getting to level 6 her Stun+Tibber summon is like instant death.

The only heros I can counter annie in solo mid with is Fiddle or Kass because of their long range silence.

Just have cleanse and level up your rocket jump and explosive shot first. That's enough for me.

Getting a Madred's to farm faster and kill stunbear helps too.

Madreds take a while, the thing is she can like instant pwn you with stun passive + ult.

Then you shouldn't be soloing mid if that's what you're doing.

Kinda surprised, tristy is one of the heroes I have trouble with when using Annie - she's not that squishy, her atacks hurt and she's hard to harass so long as it's a good trist player. My advice would be to make use of your range to force Annie to get rid of her early stuns on creeps and get health runes so that she can't burst you down from full. Do this right and you'll at least survive the lane.

If you go look on solomid.net, they might still have replays of their 1v1 tourney. The finals was Trist vs Annie and Trist won so it might be worth a look if they still have it available.

i saw some tristanas doing good things, once annie was quite near the tower, tristana flashed, then jumped in the back of annie, and shoot her to the tower tower, she was like 'wtf' and died quick

I refer to that sort of thing as "tower punting," and I love when I can pull it off.

AP sivir makes annie cry and run away.

AP sivir is only valid with and against certain comps though...

I don't really play sivir. I can see how sivir would counter annie though.

As for Heimer -- well, he's kinda not that great of a hero.

The problem with tristana is when annie just has that stun passive ready and just stands between you and the creeps.
