As soon as Annie holds her stun, push the wave to force her stun on the minions. Avoid getting stunned during the process of pushing.
Pay attention to the number of stacks on her Passive. You can trade with Annie before she gets 2 stacks without the fear of getting stunned. Notice the cooldown of her other abilities which can rapidly refresh her stun.
Increase your survivability against Annie’s Combo by building magic resistance or items like Zhonya's Hourglass which allows you to survive one combo from Annie. After she wastes her combo, she can be killed.
Annie’s lack of mobility and ranged abilities makes her vulnerable to poke champions, which increases her reliability on her Flash to hit stuns and secure kills
Avoid stacking multiple champions in close quarters against Annie. Force your frontline to increase the distance between your carries and her. After she wastes spells on your frontline, you can punish her.
Annie’s greatest power spike is upon hitting Level 6. Respect her Fash, Passive and R combo. Punish her whenever one of these combo recipes are on CD
By completing mobility items, Annie becomes more of a threat towards your backline (even without Flash). Although, she can still be caught out of position and locked down with CC abilities.
Catch Annie off-guard before team fights occur. Annie is the main cause for tons of damage during the game. Taking fights without Annie ends most of the times in your favor.
