I must say I'm addicted to the champ and my friends would like me to start doing ranked matches w/ them when I get my summoner level up but I'm wondering if she performs as well in ranked play. As fun as Ashe is, being a ninja is so much more fun xD

She needs to be fed early to be viable late. Otherwise, she's a relatively weak laner before level 6. She really shines mid-game, though.

i main akali since always (more than 400 games, not the best player or anything but i feel i know her), but i just went into ranked
she seems viable, but you dont alway go the same build, just be versatile, jungle/mid lane/gank being my strongest places
most important think in an akali its communication, let everyone now if you dive u dont always mean for kill just to distract them a little damage and get out of there, ive seen many people just go uicide because i jumped in to "save me"
unles im pretty fed i need to take someone to 50 health percent for a quick kill without getting hit that much andescape safely... so as ny other champ organization and know your place...

Go watch Westrice play Akali in ranked. He's in the top 10 for ELO's and totally stomps scrubs.

Yeah, Westrice is a downright pain to play against when he's akali. Essentially laning phase you throw down shroud, go in it, Q spam, run away. You do this over and over to harrass before lvl 6. You also use q to last hit, and your shroud as well. Rush rylai's, gauge how well your doing and just don't be stupid. Prob one of the best solo q stomp champs behind like rammus panth chogath vlad and sivir.

and you should solo lane.

Just my opinion though,

incredible burst damage but farm is really important. she is a tough champ to learn and is much harder to master but she's a really good pick especially against annoying carries like corki or mf
