How do you beat support Annie?
You play Leona or Thresh and don't run garbage runes. Picking a stronger AD carry than your opponent also helps.
I believe this is an appropriate time to say "rek't"
I have had success 3/3 times as Zilean. Bombs at lvl 1 before she can stun often and double bombs at lvl 2 make her play VERY passively the rest of laning phase. Lvl 1 bomb has 90 base damage. Obviously 2 bombs is 180. Assuming you did 1 or 2 before you each hit level 2, Annie is down 270-360hp as soon as you hit level 2. The girl only has like 500 at that point.
Post 6, Annie can all-in if she wants, but your revive pretty much nullifies it. She's got no more huge burst by the time you or the adc are revived, but Zilean does. He'll have another double bomb ready.
Leona does not beat Annie. >_>
There is almost no way to beat Annie right now thanks to the season 4 changes.
Just ban her. That's about it.
No one outdamages her, even if you have Leona and can connect on her here is what happens. She aoe stuns you, bursts your Leona down, and if their adc decides to engage they can just burst your adc instead. Annie's burst doesn't suffer from the traditional support sense.
And then you get further into the game and you have Annie dropping 600+ damage aoe stun burst onto your team also? That's just freaking stupid.
Ban Annie or pick Annie. That's it.
If you REALLY want to try it, do support Sion. Your burst is better but your utility is less and unless your Sion play is really good the Annie will do better than you once the game gets going but in lane you have a decent advantage over Annie as a support in terms of being able to trade.
In the chronicles of my life
there is a legend in which I change 'history' into 'herstory'.
Leona actually maxes her tankiness ability and if the ADC procs the sunlight passive, it does a lot of burst. She also has more CC.
Annie either maxes her early burst or her tankiness, not both. Her only real advantage is her ranged autos.

lol a fed Annie will steamroll the enemy team so hard with a Tibbers initiation.
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
