I'm 2 - 1 with Akali, with the 1 loss pretty much a complete blowout (0/7/0 fiddles on my team)
And the two games with akali i crushinated and got 1st place... and one of those games was my very first game on Dominion ever.

She's a skirmisher. She excels in skirmishes. Dominion is the land of skirmishes.
Same thing with how Riven is from the top down a skirmisher and she typically crushinates.

That being said, Akali is definitely not unmanagable...
I played Tryndamere against an Akali and had the sense to start off with a longsword towards an eventual early Lightbringer. Me and some other AD champ used Lightbringer whenever she showed up and we sat on her so hard.
The other time i faced an Akali i was an Akali as well... Guess what, Hextech Sweeper is phenomenal on an Anti-Akali Akali. AP, CDR, and health? And the magic-damage-reveal ability? Yes please. I got it early on and it made the difference - at the time i bought the sweeper we were roughly even in scores but once i got sweeper it was easy for me to focus just the enemy akali in all future fights. CDR/Health/AP is great for casters too. It would be a staple for a Vlad or a Sona whenever you go against a stealth opponent.


Akali is entirely managable.

Akali is manageable, but somehow I always see her do extremely well in terms of K/D/A (resulting in her team controlling more points).

Like, frequently see her win 2v1's even without stealth.

what do you mean by outplay? If you mean by turret hugging like a little ***** and waiting for jungle ganks then its not them whose bad its you. You are too reliant on using stupid skillless numbers advantage to win.

I've seen some good players on dominion, and they've outmicroed/juked and destroyed akalis. This is the diff b/w a good player and one who just knws how to farm.

DM is better for ppl with great micro/strategic skill and SR is better for people who prefer to have skill in last hitting, warding and killing jungle creeps.

Tell me which one actually takes more skill/timing

My Trynd example had akali at some kind of 5/7/1 score at the end i think.
And my akali-v-akali match had me at 21/8/14 while the enemy akali was 15/14/14.
To give further perspective, two of my teammates had more kills than the enemy Akali.

And i must disagree with Daethr in the ward department.
Intelligence is everything in combat and i'd love to be able to ward some of the center area... i don't want my ass ambushed while i move to relieve the windmill from the bottom end of the map.

lightbringer on a tanky dps also works wonders on her, i played as akali against a trundle with lightbringer and the new version of bloodthirster, and couldnt do a single thing. if i found him, he would kill me
