she EATS carries later even easier LOL

Irelia's early game is where she farms.

Irelia's mid game is where she kills ADC's.

Irelia's late game is where she either peels for her carries, kills their carries, or absorbs alot of dmg (tank).

Her late game is going to change depending on what happens earlier in the game.

I think her chasing abilities are superior. Jax mans up and rushes through, but after one leap strike and stun, the carry will probably dash away if they're a carry with this capability. Irelia has a longer lasting slow/stun and a longer (I think) ranged dash; plus, instead of resistances, she gets CC reduction so you can't panic ult her as Varus and get away with it.

She falls off in that she won't be able to outright assassinate the AD carry anymore, but she is still a very difficult to kite, disruptive menace.

That CC reduction ^_^. I used to think it was a useless passive when I first started using her. But, as I got more games in I realized that CC means nothing to me... period.

Jax has a stronger late game if fed, but has one of the weakest early games of any top laner. Irelia can farm very easily early game and trade well with the enemy laner even pre-6.

Her late game is so-so, it was her mid game that was really strong. Nerf to phage really hurt her though, since her old build was to rush a phage + wits end to do well early/mid game.

All the nerfs didn't help her out much either heh. She still farms fairly safely under tower at least.

gl doing that, she's stuck doing her pathetic 70 true damage (or something like that) while the carries are criting at 1000.
