Akali gets countered pretty hard by oricle. If I see akali on the other team I have to keep buying oricles otherwise she will snowball too much. That being said I do believe that akali has way too much burst dmg and manuverability.

Good job ignoring the shut down of your Akali OP argument.

If she was a gravy train I'd be diamond. 96 games played because I enjoy her and she's definitely my best champion. Played her since level 6 and I have 4000 games played, that's why I'm defensive. But nice try ass hat.

If it'll make you better at the game, yes. Why wouldn't I want someone to actually learn something about a champion and how to shut down a problem themselves instead of relying on nerfs next patch to do it for them?

she's no where near voyman olaf OP.

She's not even anywhere near stacking health op.

Just buy a ton of health. You'll scale more than she does damage.

My problem with her comes where I always see her; mid.

Please don't think I'm implying she's "OP", because I'm not. I think if she was that glaringly "OP", RIOT would do something about her, and in general, I trust the balance team. What I am saying however, is that she has a very strong kit and is very tough mid.

She's dangerous right out of the gate and starting @ 6 will zone and ultimately destroy very many casters.

Good point. I'm gonna have to look into this at some point as a counter pick in addition to Swain.

She's resourceless, hard to kill without jungler and a pink ward, has ranged harass, sustain, and high burst.
kassadin is one of the only champs i dont like fighting with akali.
silence ruins her, and he has 2 aoe spells he can spam in her shroud.

I hate it, but I just might have to jump on the band wagon.
