She's like a weaker version of Katarina.

List reasons? OK!

1. AoE: hits inside Shroud
2. Pinks and Oracles counter her "stealth"
3. Skill shots can hit inside Shroud
4. She deals mostly Magic Damage, so anyone with MR can fight her
5. She is not meant to be built tanky. Maybe Rylais, but overall she is just a fat load of HP and burst.
6. Alistar, Lee Sin, Janna... Anyone with knocks/strong CCs can shut her down in team fight.
7. Exhaust decreases her damage output considerably.
8. If you zone her out of the fight, your team can finish her later.
9. She is an assassin; if she doesn't burst you in a specific time window, she is useless.
10. If her team relies on her and you shut her down, you won the game.
11. If she gets behind, purple caster minions do more damage

I can also list strategies to counter her. :3 Free lessons.

She's INCREDIBLY strong mid game. She's obscenely weak early, and if she doesn't do well in mid game, she falls off hard.

Basically, she has the power to secure herself a win via her insane mid game, BUT if people don't let you get ahead, you will fall off hard.

She's a great pub stomper, but is bad against organized teams.

Hope I helped

400 gold is a cheap price to destroy her smoke. Once that's down she's easy prey.

Also Lee Sin.


Yeah, Lee Sin's another common pick that completely ruins her day.

Which means if you have 1 stun they are worthless.

If you have 0 stuns you get omni-slashed.

you guys are forgetting that darius craps all over her top lane, and so does anyone else with any AoE. on the other hand she will completely wreck any tops that dont have hard CC, which is probably not a lot.

mids on the other hand....with lee sin being popular is bad for her. other then that she does well against the squishies post 6, before 6 is more of stay alive no mater what game, and if she loses the game may as well be 4v5.

akali is an assassin, assassins need to be fed or slightly fed to roflstomp properly
and akali has some problems early game
but what i know is with each kill her chance to roflstomp your team rises exponentially
