Hello guys I'm Myles, otherwise known as Solomon and I hail from the SEA server to assist fellow players to the game. I have been playing League Of Legends since Season 2 and was your typical bronzie. I have worked hard and strive to be a better player since, and was able to reach Diamond 3 in both Seasons 4 and 5, and you can too! climbing up was not easy, but I hope to teach you how to climb the ladder, and hopefully help you attain your desired rank, be it, Silver, Gold, Platinum or even Diamond. Today, i will be teaching (or rather, attempting) you how to play Annie. Annie is a mid laner packed with utility as well as TONS of burst. Her passive, pyromania can be used in a multitude of ways, ranging from engaging for your team with the oh so glorious 5 man tibbers, to kiting the enemy by utilising your skills,to its maximum potential and stunning them multiple times in a long chase. Annie is one of the few mid laners that are able to cater to new players being a 450 champion, as well as the age old veterans with its relatively easy playstyle as well as big playmaking abilities. As a player which have been down to 800 elo and all the way up to 2500, I would like to mention that Annie is a very good carry in all ranks. Except she isn't a high skill cap high reward champion. (This is me in 900 elo, I was down at 600 elo back in season 2 your typical Bronzie.) [img][/img] (After playing for 4 seasons. I have reached peaked at Diamond 3 which may not seem to be an high rank for some people but effort is put in.) [img][/img] [big][b][center]Annie's Lore[/center][/b][/big] Years after the exodus, Gregori and Amoline had a child:Annie[img=champ/annie.png]. Early on, [img=champ/annie.png]'s parents knew there was something special about their daughter. At the age of two, [img=champ/annie.png] miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear [img=skills/annie/r.png] - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear [img=skills/annie/r.png] by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of [img=champ/annie.png]'s lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power. It is this same girl who now finds herself as one of the most sought-after champions within the League of Legends - even by the city-state who would have exiled her parents had they not fled beforehand. [img=champ/annie.png] has a win rate of 52.6% which means that it is a very strong pick in terms of carrying potential and having presence in the game. [img][/img] [center][b]When should you pick or take up annie?[/b][/center] [img=champ/annie.png] is a strong champion with the ability to carry the team when played by the right person. As [img=champ/annie.png], you would want to avoid picking against champions with long range pokes like [img=champ/azir.png] [img=champ/xerath.png] [img=champ/ziggs.png].[img=champ/annie.png] has an insane amount of map presence when she's roaming around the map with her AOE [img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive) stun. [img=champ/annie.png] is always a save pick due to being able to farm easily with [img=skills/annie/q.png] at a safe distance and is able to trade damage with her opponents without losing out in damage. [center][img][/img][/center]

[center][b]EARLY GAME[/b][/center] [img=champ/annie.png] is a strong laner as she have little issues farming with[img=skills/annie/q.png] as it refunds mana each time as long as it executes the minions. As long [img=champ/annie.png] can survive the lane she will be able to have a presence throughout the game. [img=champ/annie.png] is able to use [img=skills/annie/q.png] to poke out her opponents from a safe distance, the only disadvantage will be that she isn't as strong as some other champions like [img=champ/leblanc.png] in terms of early levels. [center][b]TRADING DAMAGE WITH OPPONENTS[/b][/center] I would not recommend trading with opponents at level 1 because we have added [img=skills/annie/w.png] and may lose trade. However, once we've reached level 2, stack [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive) with [img=skills/annie/q.png] once you reach the third stack, you can initiate with [img=skills/annie/q.png] followed by [img=skills/annie/w.png] + Auto attack. This method will last you from level 2 to level 5. Level 6 onwards is very simple, once you hit the third stack with [img=skills/annie/p.png], initiate with [img=skills/annie/q.png] followed by [img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/w.png] + [img=summoners/ignite.png] with a little auto attacks, [img=skills/annie/r.png] will bring out the stun from the passive as [img=skills/annie/q.png] is used to get the last stack on [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive) you should be able to outburst the enemy once you hit the level 6 mark. As [img=champ/annie.png] have one of the highest range at mid lane (575) it is easy to out poke other champions such as [img=champ/ahri.png][img=champ/brand.png][img=champ/syndra.png] who has a slightly shorter range of 550.

[center][b]MID GAME[/b][/center] [img=champ/annie.png] power spikes up once she hit level 6 because of [img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive) to be able to roam around the map with a huge presence. Always have [img=skills/annie/r.png] with [img=skills/annie/p.png] up when contesting dragon because of how strong your presence is. Just imagining making a play like[img=summoners/flash.png] +[img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive) on 4 people and it will be a game changing play. [center][b]WHEN TO ROAM?[/b][/center] Roaming around the map and putting wards is your duty as [img=champ/annie.png], to be able to give advantage to your team is your most important duty. Always push out your lane before you roam, you wouldn't wanna see your tower being taken down by minions after so many receiving kills from bottom or top lane. You will have to participate in all of the important team fights, including 2v2's at bottom making it 3v2 when a fight is about to happen. If you noticed that your opponent mid laner is missing, try to follow the opponent mid laner to make the fight equal such as 3v3 at the bottom lane or 2v2 at the top lane. [b][center]WHEN YOU ARE LOSING THE LANE[/center][/b] Do not panic as it will lead to mistakes. What I would do personally here is also to push out the lane, then assist the bot lane(2 kills to bring you back into the game). If bot gank is successful, proceed to dragon(First buff) for the buff. Avoid face checking bushes as you will never know if enemy jungle is in there, and help out the support with gaining vision on the map for your team mates to make plays. [center][b]WHERE DO I WARD TO HELP THE TEAM?[/b][/center] [img][/img]

[center][b]LATE GAME[/b][/center] As [img=champ/annie.png] positioning during late game is very important, one fight can cause the whole game to turn a 360 degrees turn around. If your team does not have a champ who can initiate fights or start fights, [img=champ/annie.png] must take on that role of initiating with [img=summoners/flash.png] + [img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive stun) and trying to burst down as the opponent carries as soon as possible. [center][b]WHAT SHOULD I DO? MY TEAM GOT CAUGHT AGAIN[/b][/center] I would suggest rolling back to the tower and start defending, forcing a fight 4v5 at this point of time will not end well. DO NOT flame your team mates at this point of time, by doing so they might get cranky and start trolling, keep calm and explain the situation nicely to them before things get out of hands. Regroup as soon as possible and try to contest for Baron(if it is there) or you can initiate another team fight as 5v5.

[center][b]TEAMFIGHTS[/b][/center] As [img=champ/annie.png], your main target is to burst is the squishy AD / AP on the opponent team. If [img=summoners/flash.png] is up, do a combo on the carries with [img=summoners/flash.png] + [img=skills/annie/r.png] + [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive stun) + [img=skills/annie/w.png] followed by [img=skills/annie/q.png] as a 6 item [img=skills/annie/p.png] you will be able to burst down any APC or ADC during late game. [center][b]I CAN'T GET INTO THEIR BACK LINES. WHAT SHOULD I DO?[/b][/center] Fret not, in fact [img=champ/annie.png] is a very good peeler, transit to a bursty ap support for your AD while still being able to deal damage for your ad to clean up. Always try to protect the carries with [img=skills/annie/p.png](Passive stun) as the stun last for almost 2 seconds(1.75), the ADC will be able to clean up with [img=skills/annie/p.png] peeling for him or her.
