That is, is she to the point where it doesn't really matter what lane opponent she is dealing with: i.e. she will still likely perform well in the game regardless?

Well if you get countered you can just send her top so I guess yeah.

shes easily counterpicked by bruisers, if the person playing kat is actually a kat player and not a "i picked up kat because she was brokenly OP" player she should do fine, otherwise not really.

Its not really about her lane opponent, its about the whole team. If they have cc don't play her. If their mid is a kat counter but have no cc than you'll be fine. Kat can play her lane safe.

This FotM bandwagon hopper is actually asking before jumping onboard!

@OP, no, she's not safe. At all.
Contrary to what the ******* on GD think, she can get countered, and hard.

First pick her, and you're begging your enemy to instalock a Fizz or Diana, and those are the ones who have it easy. Nearly every mid can counter her if they know what they're doing.

Kat abuses inexperience and mistakes (which is why GD loves whining about her), but she really isn't all that hard to beat, especially in ranked where people see what you're picking

"Enemy first picked Katarina?"
"Guess I'll go Cho mid and make her the most worthless thing in the game..."
