As Ive always seen in ranked, Akali has now recently been pretty much one of the best top laners and it is arguably said that she is "OP" or a pubstomper. The thing that makes akali special is her ult. People always say, " Beat akali 'pre 6' ". All that means is to try out farm and kill her before she gets her "6". You know why they say that? Because her "6" is OP / A pubstomper. No other champ has an instant 1 - 2 second cd jump with good damage onto another champion... and can do it 3 times! Alot of other carry divers like Irelia have one jump, but after that, she can be kited by a cleanse or flash. This idea doesn't work with Akali, you flash, she just ults. This makes her the perfect carry diver. What also makes her more OP, is the new meta. Because of the base speed buff, the new meta for some champs with no mana ( which include Akali ) is to just get the 13 health pots, or a ward and as many health pots as possible. The idea of these builds are SUSTAIN. And who benefits on sustaining into lane.. untill she is 6? AKALI! With both of her passives at level one, she is said to have the highest burst level one with her Q and the Q detonate and she has almost natural sustain. The natural sustain and several potions makes her stay in lane more and farm untill she is farmed or fed. And in that case, it is almost gg. There are some ways to stop, her such as a pink ward for her shroud and suppression, but a good akali won't go into a 3v1 unless she knows she can win, or she could just get zhonyas. Feel free to comment because I feel she should get at least a rework

Yi will always be the best pubstomper.

Teemo is better than Akali too, Garen, Darius, Tryndamere, probably the best pubstompers in the game.
