If you're seeing a squishy Akali, then yeah you can literally kill her in a 3 second focus fire. Any anti-stealth consumable will screw her up since the shroud needs to be used at one point in the team fight. With that said, I've seen few ever build survivability items. So hard cc and good focus fire should put the fight into 4 vs 5 unless your team was out played and out farmed due to a wide gap in items in possession in team fights.

the only possible way Akali could be doing this to you is if your teammates are just that bad, or if the tank on her team is just that good.

If you focus fire on her, she goes down almost instantly. If she's living and killing you all, it's because your teammates are continuing to attack her tank. A tank at less than half health still has more survivability than Akali at full. She pops onto the battlefield, kill her instantly. It doesn't matter if Xin is getting away with 2 health left, it doesn't matter that the tower only has 4 or 5 hits left. Your whole team needs to focus on Akali. If you do this, she will be dead in less than two seconds, and you can go back to what you were doing before. If you don't do this, her burst damage will destroy you.

You beat Akali by having your team turn and focus her the instant she dashes out of the brush to attempt an assassination. Someone carrying an Oracle will be imperitive as her only way to get out trouble while continuing to threaten your carry is to throw down a shroud. A visible Akali in the middle of your team should be a dead Akali.

Additionally, if you have skill shots/placement AoEs (like Spirit Fire, Pillar of Fire, Tormented Soil, Nevermove, etc), or passive PBAoE damage sources (Sunfire, Nasus/Renekton ultimate, Amumu tears, abilities like Garen's spin), aim them in the shroud. Make her choose between taking residual damage that will likely kill her or getting out of the "safety" of her only defensive ability.

She does her circle of stealth.
Drop purple ward on it.
Everyone kills her.

If you're soloing Akali after she's fed, that's not an issue with Akali, and there is no counter for that other than not doing it.

mordekaiser doesn't need to see her in bubble to kill her.

when she bubbles, just put on your sunfire cape and W, walk in and start spamming your AoE's on the creep wave.

she'll take much damage and hurt you very little with all your MR form FoN and shield.

As Shen, the second she attacks me I taunt her, then she can't do much. She is pretty squishy, if she has that high damage output. Also, if she smoke bombs, you can also try to taunt her, it will uncloak her.
