This week has been absolutely miserable for me in LOL. Nearly every single PVP blind pick game or Co-op AI game has been dominated by Kha'Zix and Akali players. Every single loss I had recently is due to an enemy Akali or Kha'Zix carry continuously killing everyone off. And personally, I had enough. I want to make the players lives who use these characters on the enemy team MISERABLE by knowing which champions counter them and how to fight them in a team fight. So any tips??? XD.

Oh yeah, I play mid AP carry and top tank. I am also trying to jungle as well, now I got the runes for it.

Tanks/bruisers generally crush assassins, for the most part. Both Akali and Khazix are completely dependent on stealth and mobility to survive, so high-CC tanks/support can lock them down while they're obliterated, and assassins usually can't successfully 1v1 most bruisers with equal farm.

You could try out bruisers like Garen, Lee Sin, or Udyr for example, tanks like Malphite or Cho'gath, or support like Leona or Taric as ones specifically that cause assassins grief.

You could start by playing only draft and banning them.

But even if you do play against them there's a simple way to stomp them. Like the guy above said, counter them with bruisers like Lee Sin, Darius, Renekton and Jax.

See an Akali or Kha'Zix pick where its obvious they will go mid? Don't be stupid and pick a standard AP mid, pick Lee, Jayce, Panth, Darius or Renekton.

Or if you're a jungler, camp at their lane and deny them the chance to snowball. Its easy for champions like Xin, Vi, Jarvan and Volibear to crush them early game and get your lanes fed.

Nice advice. I did notice that I often was able to hold my own against Akali even when she was semi fed off of my team mates since I often do top lane. I guess it is up to me to gank Akali and Kha'Zix every chance I get XD. Will try to incorporate to my play style once I the servers come back up XD.

Play naulias. He pretty much eats Khazix. And akali most of the time depending on what cooldowns are up and you're build. Imo. Also hes free this week.

Oracles counters Akali. Play bruisers and harass her early game. She is not too sticky without her Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Level 6 Ultimate. A inexpensive champion like Garen should be fine.
Kha'Zix is a bit squishy early game and weaker burst. Try not to be isolated from minions/allies. Build HP/Armor.
