Tips to face Annie
To start we have to know how Annie works, knowing that she has burst damage and a stun that will be seen under her mana with several bars (when she has the fourth one that is lilac is that she will have the stun charged) and the next skill she throws will stun.
Knowing this, we must be careful because he can charge it quickly with his E + Q combo and there are two bars + Tibbers (R). So we must keep a safe distance or try to make an efficient trade when she spends her stun.
Now we leave you with the champions that counter Annie:
Brand is very good at respecting the distance, since his W can keep the distance well, clean the waves and poke her doing great damage, also with his E can do splash damage and with the R can bounce even in the own tibbers.
Syndra with her burst damage and the cc she has once you hit her with your E you can do the combo and go backwards, you also have the W that allows you to make a small slow good enough so that it does not reach you.
One of the safest picks in the midlane is morgana, her black shield makes stuns not affect her, and she also has a jail that allows you to escape from adversity. With her W you can easily clear the waves and also with her passive you will have a good sustein.
As we mentioned before, a great advantage will be to keep distances, so Velkoz knows what that is, and also has slow with his Q and a stun with his E. We must be careful because if you get close enough once we have thrown our Q Annie can make us a one shot, we just have to go pokeando and we will end up kicking her out of line or killing her.
