Ashe was also on full health, but got dropped to nothing by the enemies in that fight. We were caught out of position (returning from dragon, I think), and Alistar received most of the CC from the enemy team, which is why he died uber fast (despite Janna shield).

I also didn't react just that little bit fast enough to save Alistar with Monsoon (if you watch carefully, Alistar JUST dies as I ult).

Yes, lots of mistakes were made :P



0:02 Annie finishes off Cho'Gath (with help from Janna tornado)
0:02 Olaf dies to Corki
0:07 Enemy Amumu drops resulting in his death, by Annie
0:08 Janna shields Alistar
0:11 Alistar dies to Irelia - Irelia dies to Annie
0:13 Janna uses Monsoon, Janna is Ignited - dies
0:14 Corki jumps in, kills Ashe
0:17 Annie kills Corki
0:19 Annie kills Kassadin

Honestly, I didn´t even noticed suiciding Janna. As I were caught up in watching Annie. I could make an endless loop out of it. :D It´s still funny how you die, even after the 5th time watching it :D
If I could help you +rep me ;)

Hey! :P

I admit, the "Eughhhhhhh..." noise she makes is pretty hilarious. She also doesn't gracefully slink to the ground in defeat, she just faceplants :P

I should probably go review your guide now, haha ^^

da_neo's Annie Guide
Verdict: A very detailed and mathematically backed AP Annie guide with plenty of tips and tricks. The author certainly knows the in's and out's of Annie and her bear Tibbers ;)
Possible Improvements: Not very many as the guide is somewhat visually pleasing. Needs to work on formatting (centring icons), and possibly making the graphs more attractive (Microsoft Excel allows for fanciness). The videos are very entertaining, and the gameplay sections are extremely informative.

Constructive Criticism:

1) Your two builds are what I would consider sub-optimal, but together make much more sense. Annie is extremely squish, so Rod of Ages is a vital first big purchase. And while Annie does do a lot of spamming, Archangel's Staff is just not necessary.

As I recommend to all guide writers who have more than one build cheat sheet - condense it down to one. State the items you get 90% of the time.

2) Seals of Replenishment, I find, are better on Casters than Seals of Clarity. I think it's because the flat mana regen is better early game, and early game is important for casters. Whereas the Clarity seals are better for AD champs who rely on late game dominance after they've bought their items.

3) :/ You're even more squish than I realised. If you're not going to start with the 100+ health a Doran's Ring will give you, you have to grab health somewhere else, like through runes.

4) I know English isn't your native language, but question marks are like all other forms of punctuation, thus come directly after the statement/question. So, "How are you?" as opposed to, "How are you ?"

5) Try to be a little less negative in your introduction :)

6) I think your graphs are a little over the top.

7) If you insist on copypastaing from the database, at least somehow distinguish the difference between database and your own words.

8) No need to list useless Summoner Spells

9) I think your graphs are too much ^^ Kudos for making them though

10) I think you have some coding errors in "Alternate Starting Items"

11) How about centring your Item Icons?

12) Tear of the Goddess > Boots

13) Don't list Mejai's Soulstealer

14) I'd call Zhonya's a Survivability item, not damage ^^

15) No need to mention generic potions.

16) I've never seen Guardian Angel on Annie.

17) Put your "Laning" section under "At levels 1-3/4" without the "Laning" title

18) Pretty warding map :)

If people are reading this, could you pretty please check the first page, second post and tell me if you are not in it? (like, if I've reviewed your work, but I haven't featured you on the front page) Somehow I think I accidentally copy+paste'd an old copy of the list, and I'm afraid I'm missing some of my reviews.

Thanks ^^

Pending Rework of Champion

Guide For (champion): Evelynn
Why I'd like this to be Reviewed: I believe I have found the perfect medium for Evelynn. Players either utilize her amazing skill set with bursty AP and lack sustain in combat or do the opposite as AD Eve. I truly believe my guide is how Eve is meant to be played, and I want other players to try it out. Just have to wait for her buff now! :D
What I'd like you to focus on: My Summoner Spells (in regards to Flash), the core build itself, and my explanation on GP/5 items, to see if I have proper justification.
Guide Link: http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/something-wicked-this-way-comes-hybrid-roaming-eve-90463


Guide For: Evelynn
Why I'd like this to be Reviewed: My guide has been mostly unnoticed and I'd like some criticism and an opinion or two about it
What I'd like you to focus on: Anything you think may be incorrect or poorly explained
Guide Link: Linky

Pending Remake of Guide

My guide for: Gangplank, the Saltwater Scourge
Why I'd like you to review it: Some criticism, to know was six hours making of it worthful, etc. =D

Reviewable Guides

http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/radiating-sunshine-101349 NOTE FROM JHOIJHOI: I was going to ignore your request due to the fact that I have rules of submission for requests (the way I'm ignoring the above Garen guide, but I actually was already in the process of reviewing your guide for commenting on on of my guides, so lol.

Is this "Edit:" thing you are doing to your front page new or something? o.o
If you have I've altered my guides (at least my Akali one and some of my Jax) since I've first posted on this forum.
If it isn't I would suggest making a constructive criticism and an end result type section on the front page to make it how much the guide has improved since then :P

Guide For: Xin Zhao

Why I'd like this to be Reviewed: I'm a perfectionist when it comes to stuff that I truly care about and I truly care about helping people become better at LoL.

What I'd like you to focus on: PERFECTION. Give me everything you got. I want this guide to be as close as possible to perfect. I don't care if you review mine last, I just want it reviewed when you have time because I will keep coming back for more until you say, "This guide is perfect."

Thanks for that. Sadly, I don´t use Excel. Instead I use Geogebra. It´s a free calculation software. I find it pretty usefull, not only for LoL, but for school too ;)


Constructive Criticism:
Quoted:

As I recommend to all guide writers who have more than one build cheat sheet - condense it down to one. State the items you get 90% of the time.

Will do. I actually inteded to do an early-dominance build (first) and a late-game build (second). From your reaction I suggest you didn´t noticed. As I think you are a very intelligent person who didn´t noticed it, I´ll delete it as there are many many many many [repeat for more profit] players out there who are more stupid. I somewhat tried to explain it in the guide, but i failed :/. But still I don´t see myself needing rod of ages. Many Annies play with it. Idk, but I somehow don´t perform well with RoA.

Quoted:

2) Seals of Replenishment, I find, are better on Casters than Seals of Clarity. I think it's because the flat mana regen is better early game, and early game is important for casters. Whereas the Clarity seals are better for AD champs who rely on late game dominance after they've bought their items.

You are actually right, BUT as I don´t have flat mp regen runes, I can´t simply make a guide suggesting it, can I? I wan´t to rewrite it as soon as I get those. But I think I´ll state them in the rune section.
Quoted:

3) :/ You're even more squish than I realised. If you're not going to start with the 100+ health a Doran's Ring will give you, you have to grab health somewhere else, like through runes.

I simply don´t feel the need to buy Doran's Ring. I don't know why others need to. As I stated in the situational section guide, I buy one of those if i lack behind, or feel that I am too squishy. This happens very rarely. BUT, as I stated in the "alternate starting Item" section, it´s an Item i really like, espeacially vs champions who I have problems with. *cough* kassdin

As this is not a guide for quick reference in the champion select, I will state this in the "Preface" section, and will Link the top annie guide (playing with fire) in there, as that´s a good guide, but lacks in-depth information.

Quoted:

4) I know English isn't your native language, but question marks are like all other forms of punctuation, thus come directly after the statement/question. So, "How are you?" as opposed to, "How are you ?"

*laugh* Well, I wrote this guide in roughly 7 days. Between my house-chores and my lol-login waiting time. I needed to be fast here and there and so a few mistakes occured ;). Will reread my guide and change what I see.

Quoted:

5) Try to be a little less negative in your introduction :)

But I need to state it. Annie is a champ who either performs good or bad and relies somewhat on the level advantage from mid. It´s the same with every champ( except ad-carries). Perform bad early->perform horribly late. But Annie is far worse. Either become the nightmare of enemy team, or your own team.

Quoted:

6) I think your graphs are a little over the top.

Naah, as i said, it´s an in-depth guide, not something for quick reference. I want the people to understand when an where to use what.
Quoted:


7) If you insist on copypastaing from the database, at least somehow distinguish the difference between database and your own words.

Sry, my english is bad. Could you give an example ?

Quoted:

8) No need to list useless Summoner Spells

In-depth guide. I wanted to refrain from that. Really. But it´s for a reason. I see many many many annies run around with wrong summoner spells. I wanted to state why they are wrong. I tried to keep it at a minimum

Quoted:

9) I think your graphs are too much ^^ Kudos for making them though

"kudos" ?!?!?!?!? oO :D

Quoted:

10) I think you have some coding errors in "Alternate Starting Items"

Oh, yes. The (list) thingy includes the graph too...dang.

Quoted:

11) How about centring your Item Icons?

Will do and see how it looks


naah, not everytime. Movement is an extremly underrated aspect on Annie.

Quoted:

13) Don't list Mejai's Soulstealer

As you might have read, I´m not a fan of this, BUT I buy it in 1% of my games. When I am extremly steamrolling and I mean 5 0 by "steamrolling" at 5 minute mark, I´ll buy this. It´s extremly funny to have 20 stacks. Not only because you do a hella damage, no. As many enemys want to see you dead, I just hide in the nearest bush. The enemy will try to save as much CC/damage spells as possible to get you. What if you aren´t engaging at all ? Well your team will get an ace, because the enemies just did roughly 50% damage. The Veigar waited patiently with his ult. Blitzcrank doesn´t use this, because he wants to silence you. Really funny. :D And if they happen to overpower your team, simply engage and oneshot someone, then back off. so funny as they try to kill you, and completly ignore your team. apfnoasfdnpasfn. Sometimes I laugh so hardly that need to calm down for 1-2 minutes ;D

Quoted:

14) I'd call Zhonya's a Survivability item, not damage ^^

Well, kinda hybrid, but yeah. Somehow fits better in defensive items, will change

Quoted:

15) No need to mention generic potions.

Awww, again you are right. I somehow feel I´m loosing this one. Will change.

Quoted:

16) I've never seen Guardian Angel on Annie.

I myself bought this a couple of games and I feel really comfortable with. But, again you are right. Hourglass does the exact same thing. Will delete it from my guide

Quoted:

17) Put your "Laning" section under "At levels 1-3/4" without the "Laning" title

Will do, somehow pointless to make a section for 2 sentences ;)
Quoted:

18) Pretty warding map :)

I needed to make a point somewhere. I see many players who complain about "no miss, you noob dfnbpasfdbnpasdf rage asdanfdünsdfo nazi". It may be the fault of the mid to not say miss, but it´s also the fault of bot to die. Especially if 75 gold could prevented 300 gold and 400 exp for enemy team. So I decided to make a more advanced warding section as an annie player will play some other champions too and will sometimes even land on the side lane.

I placed your "questions" in the FAQ section.

After your response I´ll make a new guide and copy and paste this one. As far as I know, my actual guide won´t be seen on "newest guide" as I published it and then instant "archieved it"
If you could change the Link on your feature list, I would be pleased. Thanks for the crtiticsm.
If I could help you +rep me ;)

@Neo: I will definitely change the link once you publish it. Also, I'd recommend waiting for an Annie free week to maximise the chance of views and votes :)

"Kudos" is like saying "well done" ^^

Um, with regarding distinction, make the data base stuff in a different colour or something. So people can see when your descriptions of the ability start. If that makes sense lol.

Feel free to come back and request a re-review once you've uploaded it/edited it ^^ Also, about the two build thing - it's more or less a personal preference thing. If you want to display two builds, then do so. Also, as with all my reviews, I always review when reading, so if things are repeated/asked/stated before you explain things (ie the Doran's Ring thing, it's because I hadn't read up to that section yet ^^

@Laka: ^^ Will get up to reviewing it again soon. In the meantime, please check out Tinolas' Xin Zhao guide. I consider that nearly perfect (just lacks depth).
