So, i didn't play league since s4, just recently picked it up again. I was platinum II back then, but my skills are a bit rusty, no question. So, I had to go into midlane today and got an annie against me. I struggled a LOT against her since her dmg output was just retarded. Now after the match, I've looked up a few informations about her, and when I saw this I somehow didn't trust my eyes:
Q: Deals 80/115/150/185/220 (+80% Ability Power) magic damage
W: Casts a cone of fire dealing 70/115/160/205/250 (+85% Ability Power)
R: Tibbers appears in a burst of flame dealing 175/300/425 (+80% Ability Power) magic damage to enemies in the target area.
Honestly - why is this still the case? How can those stats go through without being noticed? The base dmg as well as the scalings are just completly absurd and stupid. I've checked a few other champs and noone has a base power/scaling even CLOSE to those:
Q: 60/90/120/150/180 (+50% Ability Power)
W: 70/115/160/205/250 (+70% Ability Power)
R: 150/225/300 (+70% Ability Power)
Q: 50/95/140/185/230 (+60% Ability Power)
W: 80/120/160/200/240 (+70% Ability Power)
E: 70/115/160/205/250 (+40% Ability Power)
R: Minimum total damage: 270/405/540 (+60% Ability Power)
Q: 60/110/160/210/260 (+70% Ability Power)
E: 60/105/150/195/240 (+60% Ability Power)
R: 300/400/500 (+75% Ability Power)
So the one who probably gets somewhat close to annie is lux, but with the difference that lux only has skillshots! I don't have a big problem if a champ has a good scaling and base dmg if the skill is somewhat difficult to land or at least requires a minimum of brain. But Annie - no offense to any annie mains out there - doesn't have any skillshots. Everything she has is instant and offers exactly 0 counterplay. As far as i know, ryze was nerfed (officially reworked) because his flash W combo was too effective. The only champ i found with similar stupid values is veigar, but he is somewhat difficult to play because that cage isn't instant anymore. And without the cage, it's pretty much impossible to hit the W. And you can easiely counter that ult with a zhonyas, which you cant if you get flash ulted by an annie. I don't think I exaggerate when i say that barely anyone is able to use zhonyas between a flash and her R. Not everyone here is an lcs player.
So I'm asking, why did noone ever touch her. Her kit and those values are obviously a relic from ... idk, 2010? Why champs get nerfed left and right, but annie got through all those patches?
