Tips Against Akali in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yamikaze says “Reworked Akali is also a quite difficult matchup because she's able to spam her Q's on you, and dissappear with smoke bomb when you're engaging. You have to bait her Q's by walking in and out, and try farm with your Q. You can also "fake" a engage in order to make her use her smoke bomb, and then you can all-in her. Be sure you have a minion wave around you when you're fighting, so you can dash around and make it much harder for her to hit her ultimate as both charges are skillshots. Take oracle lens after the laning phase. It won't reveal her, but it will show where she's going so you can still hit her with Q's.”

Vicksay says “Pretty sure I'd dodge this match-up. Her weakest point is pre-6, after that whenever her R is up you're dead meat if you miss your E, she can 1v1 you with ease with her shroud, immense damage and INSANE mobility, and if she's not the best she has 3 "get out of jail free" cards in her W, E and R.”
Polarshift says “Not the worst matchup for Ryze to be honest. Your E will still hit her if she uses shroud inside a minionwave and when there is no minionwave there is no reason for you to be anywhere close to her.”
Yeager says “Before fighting her, bait out her W smoke first as it has a pretty long cooldown. While it's cd, zone her as much as possible with your ball while constantly poking her with abilities and autos. She spikes once she gets hextech gunblade, so respect her damage at that point and don't overextend. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Doran + 2 Pots or Corrupting if you feel it's going to take a while to take her down. Her kill pressure starts only at level 6 where her ult is deadly but that can be countered with Time Warp Tonic and MR. Get Early magic resist and roam first and you will be okay. If you hit your Qs post 6 and you get her down to 50% you can use your E as a deterrent and she will not be able to dash on you engage. Don't stay in her smoke for no reason and just all in her after she's below 50% hp and you are not. Mid-Late game E destroys her dash. If in a nerfed state, Akali matchup is easy. Currently she deals decently with Taliyah so proceed with caution.”

eiensiei says “I'll harass her with E-AA pre-6. Lux outdamages her with E-AA-Q-AA if she shields too and if Akali W's, I'll retreat. After 6 I won't trade, only poke with E's and farm. Barrier is enough to save any all-ins she might attempt, and if I Q her under my tower during a dive, she's usually dead. Constantly staying behind minions makes it so she can't E and would need to commit her R to gap close. Worth noting her E can take her back to her W if she used it on her shroud on first cast.”

Sylvan Lore says “You outrange Akali pretty heavily, but that doesn't mean that she can't get to you. Level 1 she will almost always take Q. If you space her correctly you should be able to land poke in the form of Autos and Q while being safe from her Q. Should she land her Q on you though, the slow combined with her speed will likely allow her to land her passive auto and win the trade. Don't be afraid to chase her a bit and keep autoing her after she combos as she will be stuck on cooldowns. Pushing into an Akali is acceptable early as long as you are in a position to push hard enough to reset the wave before her jungler comes. Levels 3+ you will lose any even all-in trade. That's not to say that you will lose all trades, but you have to be strategic in safely poking her when possible without going oom. 3+ she wins, but especially at level 6 she has a devastating all-in that must be respected. As with most assassins, she falls off in the mid to late game. Zhonya's is super high value into her in lategame fights as she is super vulernable when diving in and can rarely afford to stick around for 2.5 seconds to finish you off. You can even win a lot of lategame 1v1s against her if you play it well, but regardless the damage and utility you can safely put out will not be matched. The real goal of this matchup is to not fall so far behind that you never get there. Phase rush and Stopwatch are ideal runes into Akali. If they have another AP threat you can consider MR runes, but I wouldn't do it just for her. Zhonyas is very high value as always into an assassin and can even be considered a second item. Merc treads are also viable if you are really struggling with this lane. Other than that building standard items and out-scaling her is completely fine.”

Rermo99 says “Akali is one of those champ that can outplay you easily but since your Malzahar you still win the game. You impact in the game is a lot more important than her's. She's good at roaming and you're good at punishing roamers by getting the first tower. Her W will piss you of, but don't be affraid you only have to play safe until it's wasted and she dies. However, her mobility is against you. If you get hit by her E, you'll die quick. If you dodge it, she looses half her damage.”

7daysko says “Play extra safe. Her ulti's first cast STUNS you, so watch out for that. Also try to poke her in lane whenever possible, she doesn't have as much damage as you in the early game (unless you allow her to get close). ”
FalleN3 says “Pre 6, take advanatge of her weak early game. You need to try to zone her from her farm and deny her as many creeps as possible. Be sure to make good use of your ball and every time she comes up to last hit a minion, harass her. Once Akali turns level 6+ and gets her Hextech Gunblade the trouble begins. She has a crazy amount of sustain due to her passive and gunblade, morellonomicon can help you to reduce her healing ability. As with any assassin, she will try to burst you down quickly and having some extra health can help you to survive this. ROA is a solid choice and Barrier as your second summoner spell. Be mindful of her roaming to other lanes for kills!”
Orianna Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Orianna by FalleN3 | Orianna Player
CaptianMike says “Easy pre-6 as with most melee champs. Simply poke her down and don't get into melee range for any reason, lest she proc her q on you. You may want to buy Zhonya's depending on how good the Akali is. All of your abilities are AoE so her shroud does nothing to hinder your power! She snowballs hard and is always relevant in the game so respect her damage and don't int. Then win!”
Embody death itself! (1k AP) (Mid and Top) by CaptianMike | Karthus Player
FalleN3 says “Akali is weak before level 6 and therefore should be abused as much as possible. You should be able to harass her with your AA a lot. When she goes in to last hit a minion you should be able to land some decent damage onto her. Even if Akali uses her (W) Twilight Shroud you can still damage her with your (W) Incinerate and your (R) Tibbers Be careful of ganks as this is a perfect way for Akali to get ahead of you!”

Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “Video: Super easy, her range and waveclear is awfull. She can't breathe in lane against you and she has hard time getting over your wall. In teamfights your ultimate also knocks her from her shroud. Stay with your ADC and she can not do anything.”

Veigarv2 says “Can 1v1 you, respect her cutlass and gunblade spike. Look her items constantly as its important to see if she buys hexdrinker, qss or mercs. electrocute + biscuits timewarp tonic You cannot match her in sidelane if she is good, so respect her. Your cage is a great tool to cuck her in teamfights with, thats ur strength.”

Phrxshn says “Akali has huge amount of harass. If you take full combo from Akali then you will not be able to trade. You will have to dodge her harass to be able to trade back. If you dodge her Five-Point Strike(Q), you should be able to trade. Another Good news is that your Poison Trail will be able to go through her Twilight Shroud(W). Your Adhesive cancels out her Dash AKA Shuriken Flip(E) and her Ultimate AKA Perfect Execution(R) as long as she remains on your Adhesive. Nonetheless difficult match-up. (Recommended core items: Rylai) (Mega Adhesive Stops Perfect Execution ) (Fling Overrides One Stack of Perfect Execution) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Akali) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”

crabbix says “Similar to most assassins, play safely and be aware of her kill potential, which is usually high, and extremely so post-6. She do be weak in solo queue tho, so I'm downgrading her”
fwii says “Avoid her Q poke and start Corrupting Potion. Poke her and trade with her whenever but don't fight in her W. ”
Yasukeh says “Take 3 rejuv and double MR into her, and just try to survive. She can Trade with you in ways where there is no recourse. If you can bait out her shroud, when it's down is the only chance you have to possibly fight her. I would consider her a first or second priority for bans, in both mid and top lane. Akali did get nerfed in 10.3, but then they did a micropatch buff, so she is still worth the ban. ”
In Depth Rank 1 Grandmasters Tryndamere by Yasukeh. by Yasukeh | Tryndamere Player
Yeager says “Lots of harass with her kunais. Her W can dodge all of your damage while she can constantly go in and out to poke you until you're low enough for her to all-in. Avoid fighting her, and focus on farming with Q from a safe distance. If you coordinate with your jungler, you should bait out her W smoke before he ganks. ”
Yeager's Master Ekko Guide|Rank 1 Ekko world by Yeager | Ekko Player
Yeager says “Rush hexdrinker or you will get oneshot when she gets level 6. We can stop her from ulting us by freezing the minion wave in front of our tower. Losing a few cs is fine against assassins, because the important thing is to NOT give them kills. ”
Yeager's Master Corki Guide by Yeager | Corki Player
FalleN3 says “You are both assassins so this is really a skill matchup. She will try to [Q] you every time you go to last hit minions but do not forget that she is weak pre 6 so try to abuse this. Once you hit level 3 it is possible for you to win trades against her and burst her down. Try to get ahead of her early and continue to snowball. I like to keep a pink ward for skirmishes with her but I rarely see others do this anymore. Use the pink ward for her shroud only when you are all-in on her (with jungler help) if possible. After level 6, it's possible for you to burst each-other down.”
Fizz Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Fizz by FalleN3 | Fizz Player
Dr Eggmund says “Can have some incredible poke on you, position yourself so your out of harms way and always farm and poke with Q as she is a melee champion. Her invisibility can be quite a shock so play passively while it's out unless you are CERTAIN you will be fine and can beat her.”

Fuzzmonkey says “Very easy to poke in lane, don't go anywhere near her shroud when she has it up. And all her whenever you get the chance, always make sure you're behind minions too then she'll never be able to hit her E.”

Fuzzmonkey says “With Akali's rework she acts a little bit like Zed, try your best to all in pre 6 and kill her (tilt her too). After 6 just make sure you save at least one distortion to get away from her. Also, avoid her E when you W into her (like Ahri charm mechanics) otherwise you will most likely lose a lot of the trades.”

AP WormMaW Mid says “Our beloved Akali, champion that is one of the hardest ones to play in a game in terms of mechanics, considering her quite low damage output. (#SarcasmEnd) Well, pre-6 you can do whatever you want to her, just be careful about her dash, that she has with her invisibility. Don't try to harass her in expense of lane minions, always prefer that farm rather than harass - expecially if she has Doran's shield. After she has level 6, don't ever try to come closer to her and farm only through your E and R. Any attempt to go on her face will mostly end in your death, even if you would rush Negatron (which you should do anyways, but it's not guaranteed, that it will always save you). So scale up, get your AP and try to oneshot her later on in teamfights. Otherwise you are doomed.”

Yuki H. says “Used to be a fairly difficult matchup for Zed, but she can't sustain in lane as much anymore. Her Q not healing her anymore means your poke is actually meaningful in lane, so look to poke her with your superior range. However, her shroud does make her an annoying target to assassinate, so make sure to bait it out, but most of the time you will be trading your w for her shroud. ”

BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Look at what keystone she is running. If she is running Elect she is looking to all in. If she is running fleet she is looking to sustain (duh.) Her damage early is nuts and if she goes in for a basic Q+Passive Proc start just poke back. If you can windwall one of her q's early she won't be able to win a trade because of how much energy she needs. If you can bait out her W you can go for an all in. Fight in a minion wave to give you a easier chance at dodging her abilities. Taking Oracle Lens is a good idea after laning phase so you can see what she is doing while in Shroud. Take Conq.”

Bouhhsolene says “Akali is a bit like Diana, except she has more kill potential in early game. Go for poke, but don't push either. Try to go for a trade when her E or W is in CD. Post 6, try to R when she's coming to you with her E, and W out if you don't think you have the damage, or take the trade if you think you do. You should be able to hold her in the sidelanes, and in teamfight, try to cc her so she can't do much. Also, if she's fed, get a zohnya to survive her all-in.”

BIG BRAIN MAN says “Laning will be annoying, but most Akali players flop outside of laning phase. Lvl 1: Her lvl 1 dmg and ms is absurd, mostly try to cs with q Lvl 2: A q + e + auto combo will beat her q + empowered auto. If she gets w second, you’ll win trade, but going for the shunpo is dangerous if she shrouds before you e in. if she starts e and hits it, she’ll win the trade hard. Lvl 3-5: It’s hard to all in her pre-6 due to her shroud. Stick to lvl 3 safe pokes, but shunpo’ing is still dangerous if she shrouds before you e in. Lvl 6: At this point, you can do a lvl 6 all-in because your ult hits her in your shroud, but you need to play around her ult because the first part of it will cancel your ult. If she hasn’t used the first part of her ult, don’t go for an all-in. ”

Veralion says “HoB/DH/Beads. FINALLY she's been hit in a significant way. Her R1 now must be target-cast on a champion, so she lost one of her on-demand dashes and her engage range is significantly shorter. Her Q also cannot be spammed as much early, making the lane much less oppressive. Akali has the highest skill ceiling on the game; a good one will eat you and your team alive and there's nothing you can do about it. A bad one will do nothing and feed though, so you shouldn't have much to worry about playing into her until Diamond. You can take her Q all day long and get the health back, but her passive if shroud comboed properly will chunk you out of lane. Get a cs, take her Q, back off with W and Fleet's speed bonus, repeat. Farm safe and try to chip her down. At 6, don’t ult in if her shroud is off CD. She’ll slaughter you if she shroud combos properly and lands both ult hits, which with how ridiculously mobile she is is almost guaranteed. Instead, ult in place and poke her down unless she wastes shroud for some reason. Keep her on the back foot so that she’s too nervous to go all in on you or roam, which is where her real threat lies. E covers a good portion of her shroud so you have a good shot of chunking her while she hides. If she wastes shroud for some reason, feel free to tackle and nom her at your convenience. It will take an eternity to come back up. Make sure you dont ult over her so she can R1 through you to safety. BEWARE once she has Gunblade. She can engage and kill you from full in three seconds flat from over 1500 range away once she has that item.”

Poppi Sama says “Skill based matchup; Akali will look for any opportunity to proc her passive then AA, use that opportunity to full combo her and burst her down.”
Pentakai says “Ban Akali. -- Level 5 Threats lock you in lane, have high lane pressure and high kill threat.”
Frixen says “Akali is a minor threat that can potentially be a major threat if played wrong. Always use your supreme range against Akali, poke her out, don't let her farm, and keep your gold card whenever she has 6 or bought items, because she will try to all in you. Her all in is extremely strong, so unless you play it right, you're a dead man. Akali is also not very much of a threat, because she can't roam against Twisted Fate due to his ultimate, and her bread and butter is her roams.”
RikudouDovahkiin says “Somewhat a challenging duel against experienced Akali, but Vladimir can out-sustain and win the trades, when we consider early game, bait her Q and heal the damage, she will usually try to leap with W, avoid getting hit by Mark + AA combo because it deals really a dangerous damage even at the level of 2. Her items are obvious, she can make a good use of some of her items, yet if you do not build any MR, avoiding her damage in team fights can be such trouble. In lane you shall focus on outwitting and winning little trades, you can use your E to reveal her in the shadows, or even get the kill. Make sure you don't basically fall behind, care for enemy jungler and you shall be OK in 1v1, she has some click-on skills, not a very-high skill cap and match-up itself favours you in some moves, situations. Use them to kill her, she is relatively a tanky mage Ignite + R can be useful when she hits low on HP.”

Use your spell when she tries to last hit, when she gets 6, she can os you so hug your tower a bit. Then, when she gets her gunblade, repeat the last operation. Try to clean the waves to roam and block her roams, try to guess where she is in her fog to charm her. If you manage to get her behid, she becomes a free kill. Good luck.”

snukumz says “Pretty easy in lane since you out range her, but you can't really poke her out due to her sustain. You can kill her with your combo, your ult semi-reveals her when she's in shroud form. She's a major threat because she mega dunks you once she gets items and there's almost nothing you can do about it, except hit zhonya's really fast and hope you teammates can punish her for diving you. She's very frustrating to play against in the late game since she 100-0's you instantly, even if you have banshee's/zhonyas. Consider skipping Rabadon's and getting morello's and liandries for the extra HP when playing against her.”

LightningTemplar says “With additional nerfs to Akali, perhaps we now have a slight possibility of not getting demolished in lane. In lane, as long as she has energy up, keep a safe distance and avoid getting hit by her Qs. Farm with Q and from lvl 3 play more aggresive. Post 6 you'll often want to R before using W, since it is an important gap closer for when she uses her R. Her shroud also makes it really hard to hit her, either waiting for its cd or getting an oracle lens might be handy. ”

You impact in the game is a lot more important than her's. She's good at roaming and you're good at punishing roamers by getting the first tower. Her W will piss you of, but don't be affraid you only have to play safe until it's wasted and she dies. However, her mobility is against you. If you get hit by her E, you'll die quick. If you dodge it, she looses half her damage.”

If she lands her E and tries to dive you while you're both at even health, flash under your tower to get the tower aggro on her, and do a trade combo + ignite to instantly kill her. Remember that if you kill her early, you can transition a lead on her for the rest of the game, but if she kills you early, you will either go even or heavily lose to her.”

Miandros says “Akali's Shroud makes it nearly impossible to trade with her. Track the cooldown and try to bait out the shroud before engaging her head on. Also, your ult provides true sight which allows you to see her in her shroud.”

serruh says “You punish her in the early levels, after that it's really doomed. Cant cc her consistently because even if you flux her with E, you wont have enough time to cast W and root her in your minion wave. Try and dodge her honestly, shoving and scaling is your best bet.”

JoshAy says “If she hits an ability back off so she can't get an empowered auto. Season 10 Akali can't spam Q as hard anymore. Remember her R1 is Champion Targeted. Try to fight when Shroud is down. If she tries to finish you off with R either cancel it with E2 or W. Good ult for skirmishes or solo kills. ”
Kami_EU says “Purely skill matchup slightly in favour of Yasuo after Akali nerfs. Keep an eye on her Energy levels, and trade accordingly, if she wastes her Shroud you can look for a trade.”
kujosrevenge says “Hard for AD Irelia and hard for AP Irelia. If facing an Akali get a sweeper so you can land E, but it won't really matter whether or not you land E because you can't target her with your Q in her shadow and she'll always outdamage you in 1v1s. Farm tower and look for roams vs. Akali, do not try to solo kill her.”

t3rminated says “This karate girl is gonna start hopping EVERYWHERE. She has insane mobility so she can escape your entire combo. Tossing a smoke would deny your combo as you can't be sure where she is walking. Her ult and E can boost her away from your R and knockup. If you ever miss your E, you are DEAD. It is really hard to land skillshots on her and she will dash on you everywhere. Just farm and play safe and hope for ganks. I put this in major rather than extreme because of the Akali nerfs that are coming up. With less mobility, Akali should be a way easier matchup. I can't say this for certain though, so I still put her in major. ”
1Recycle Bin1 says “her Q heals when her energy is nearly full so if she has low energy she wont be able to heal up, use that to your advantage and don't forget that her first R stuns for a short duration which could stop your ult. try to dodge the E, if she uses shroud at the first few levels you either go away for a bit til she shows herself, and in higher levels you just gotta ult to get her.”

Yas Yasu Yasuo says “The Akali before the rework is easy, but now it becomes hard. Her shroud can be a problem, get Hexdrinker if you are not confident. If you get ahead, it is not easy to snowball, if you get behind, it is easy for her to snowball you.”

E_IS_POWER says “Reworked Akali is also a quite difficult matchup because she's able to spam her Q's on you, and dissappear with smoke bomb when you're engaging. You have to bait her Q's by walking in and out, and try farm with your Q. You can also "fake" a engage in order to make her use her smoke bomb, and then you can all-in her. Be sure you have a minion wave around you when you're fighting, so you can dash around and make it much harder for her to hit her ultimate as both charges are skillshots. Take oracle lens after the laning phase. It won't reveal her, but it will show where she's going so you can still hit her with Q's.”

Small And Simple Talon Guide by Gogicha55 | Talon Player
Eccentricks says “Despite her being dogshit right now, Akali is a bit of a tough one. Hold your E1 to dodge her shurikens, and then look for a opening to put the hurt back onto her. Try not to stand to close to the wave to avoid her kunais and look for when she steps up to punish with Q1 & 2. And one last thing, try not to hook when she goes invis, you will usually miss. It's worth an attempt if its up and you've used E1 already, given it wouldn't put you in danger.”
8wolf says “Similar to Irelia. She has insane damage and mobility. With her e and 2 dashes from the ultimate she doesn't care about your wall. She has the best tower dive potential, so nowhere is safe against an Akali. Farm for the late game and try not to feed her.”
MrRiots says “Starting Item: Dark Seal + Potion Shes not as big of a threat as you could think. You can damage her in the smoke. Just stay out of range.”

You can either ult her towards your turret to kill her, or push her away defensively. Though, she can simply jump over it now.”
NebuIa says “After her nerfs, she's not too bad. All her dashes are straight lines, so your bubble should be easy to hit. Respect her damage. However, she can easily kill you. Maybe consider barrier or phase rush, but normal works fine.”

VoxolPrime says “Akali is similar to LeBlanc where she can stealth to negate your damage, the only issue is that she can pop her shroud whenever she wants, a good akali can just dance around you and burst you instantly, it is a winnable matchup but its safer to look for picks in the JG or by roaming most games. ”

DravensBukkake says “Barrier matchup. When I say barrier, I'm not really saying Akali beats Azir, but rather Akali is just too fucking slippery for you to kill her. Harass her early, walk back if she uses shroud. Shroud has a very long cd (20+s) so when she uses it, make a mental note for the next 20 seconds, you can play agro and setup soldiers aggressively. If she lands her E on you, E Q back into your turret and meme her own play by making her tank turret shots. Try to use ult when she's E'ing in, or after her first ult charge. Remember, you can also ult her out of her shroud. Otherwise, not a difficult matchup, but an annoying one. You can outshove her and you'll usually have priority for fights and roams.”

Level 3 and beyond is a skill matchup, typically if she shrouds the trade will be favored to her so bait it out before fighting her or immediately disengage if she uses it in the middle of a trade. Post 6, you can ult in the middle of her shroud and it'll still hit her, giving you a large advantage, as if she stands in your ult she'll take very heavy damage if she doesn't have the items to burst you down herself.”

Cloud375 says “Ok, so the new Akali is VERY different from the old Akali. She can now dash towards you a lot early game, which is a very bad thing. However, you can easily harass her with your Q in the very beginning of the game, but once she has her ultimate available, BACK OFF! On a side note, when Akali uses her shroud, if you used your Q before she enters her shroud, then your Q will always land unless they use stopwatch/zhonyas/etc, in which case it will miss. If she builds her items before you, she wins, otherwise, it's a skill matchup until lategame. Late game, you should be able to waste her if you use your ultimate. But all in all, until she has her dashes, deal damage to her when possible without getting too close!”

Her Twilight Shroud (which makes your turrets unable to target her) is annoying, and her multiple dashes can make her hard to lock down. If she ever follows her Shuriken Flip you can get an easy stun on her as shes locked into the animation. If she ever gets low and hides in her cloud, you have 2 AoE abilities that can hit her and finish her off.

Chromuro says “Don't lose your passive to her Q or E, this way she'll lose half of her damage/mobility. Her shroud is... pure bs, don't stay under tower or you'll lose minions AND your life because she can dive you whenever she wants. Your E is your best friend, when in lane if she uses her W try to route it inside the minion wave, this way you have a chance that it'll stick to her and reveal her. If you keep your distance you should be gold.”
Big Shawn says “You should abuse the fact that she hasn't reached lvl 6 yet. Akali will get strong when she gets lvl 6 as she will have high mobility after then. But if you throw her out of the game by killing her before she reaches lvl 6, you can take advantage and continue poking her with the gold advantage you have.”

Big Shawn says “Kennen vs Akali. It is an even match up, but it can get out of hand really fast. Against Akali, you do want to avoid as many mistakes as possible as you can get punished so easily. What makes you a strong opponent against her is your Ultimate Ability, as well as your passive CC. Poking her with your W passive basic attack will add pressure towards her.”

When trying to ult her, here's the criteria: If her E us up, but R is not: Flash to secure the ult. Only if you think you can kill her. If her R is up: Force her to use it or flash without using yours. Try to leave W or E up to escape if she tries to re-engage when you finish ulting. If she has neither: Go for it.”

Basic AP Glacial Augment Ezreal Guide by Latarnia40 | Ezreal Player
CC Diana says “Akali has much more outplay potential compared to her previous iteration. Akali's level 2 burst is quite strong since she can do combos such as E (backwards) -> Q -> AA which results in an instant passive proc or Q -> E -> E -> AA. This is a matchup where I would recommend taking E ( Moonfall) at level 3 instead of level 4 simply because you can use it to pull her out of her shroud assuming you are standing right in the center of it. Just treat Akali's shroud like Katarina's ultimate Death Lotus. Save your E for when they use those abilities to nullify their effects.”

Eternal Winter - Controlling the Game through Waveclear by maplecat21 | Anivia Player
Boy0Champ says “Reworked Akali is also a quite difficult matchup because she's able to spam her Q's on you, and dissappear with smoke bomb when you're engaging. You have to bait her Q's by walking in and out, and try farm with your Q. You can also "fake" a engage in order to make her use her smoke bomb, and then you can all-in her. Be sure you have a minion wave around you when you're fighting, so you can dash around and make it much harder for her to hit her ultimate as both charges are skillshots. Take oracle lens after the laning phase. It won't reveal her, but it will show where she's going so you can still hit her with Q's.”
Yasuo Mid Lane by Boy0Champ | Yasuo Player
hadi902 says “most people think she is a hard match-up but actually she is pretty easy you can easily counter her by letting her land her E and then you dash back to the turret so she gets stunned when she pushes then you hook her to the turret even more and she will be pretty much dead. ”
RagexAddict says “Another skill matchup for Fizz. Akali can be rough to deal with in lane, due to her energy resource and not having to worry too much about lane sustain. Your saving grace is that she is also a melee champ. So in order for her to CS, she has to put herself in harm's way. If she ever spams her Q twice in a row, go in on her, because she will be very vulnerable to a counter attack.”
Ponito says “Akali is a super counter of Yasuo. Play with Jungler. Get early MR item. Fight when her W is down. Play around cooldowns. ”
Yasuo by Ponito | Yasuo Player
Altis says “All-in champs are definitely your biggest problem as Zoe, if you miss your E that it. Akali is dangerous because when she comes for you, you can't see her. Though she is quite predictable, so just wait for the right time to E her and punish. Otherwise stay safe.”
[9.9] Zoe For Casuals by Altis | Zoe Player
Vombat says “Her invisibility makes it harder to land W but becouse she is a melee champ you can poke her with Q. Her Ult is really dangerous becouse she can easily dodge your Q, but when dashing in your E she can lose really big amounts of hp”

Yegie says “She is melee so a lot of potential poke from your E's passive. Her smoke cloud is very annoying, but when its down you have the advantage. One trick you can do when near tower is let her hit her E then W under tower after she starts her dash. A good akali probably won't fall for this.”

LyndonK9 says “Akali is pretty annoying because she wins trades easily, and doesn't have mana. It's pretty obvious when she tries to Q you as it doesn't have a lot of range so keep a good distance. One trick to know is keep a little more distance than her Q range and Q her back, because for a short duration after using your Q, you will be stood still. keeping out of range of her Q, and still getting yours off. When her passive is up walk away. If she uses her second part of her e on you, you can charm her, but most Akali's aren't dumb enough to do that. When she shrouds it's possible to quickly charm her if you can guess where she is. Do your best to farm and follow when she roams.”

borsamalac says “Hate play vs her , before lv6 u have small chance to get cs lead but if she starts with dorans shield u will just waste your mana. Try to free auto her when she wants to farm. Best way is stay under tower and farm. At lv6 u have no chance , ask for jungler help and roam botlane with package. If u farm under tower just put controll ward+ normal wards on river. U will know if akali wants to roam(possibly botlane) or just stand on brush and waiting for you. If she moves botlane just ping it in time and pray your botlane doesnt overstay and give her free kills. If she waste her times to gank sidalanes and u can farm Trinity safty its a win-win situation. Just ping every time she is missing(common mistake when u try to farm under tower u dont realize she is going side lane) and put down wards for good spots. ”

AzureArmatt says “New Akali is really easy to play against in lane but when she gets her items she can become a trouble. With her new kit Akali players tend to rely on her obscure mechanic that her smoke bomb provides to tower dive you while having really easy time to run away. Little they know that when they follow their mark after you get hit by shuriken they still can get hit by spells and your charm too so wait until they get close and charm them so they won't be able to use shroud after dash (only safety tool). Poking her and dealing short bursts of damage will give you best results before going in for the kill since her sustain with Q isn't enough to heal her back. On low HP watch out for execute ability her ultimate provides since it can execute for really big amount when she put 2 points into it.

Shaawn says “If you against a good Akali theres no way that you can kill her, just try to farm safe with your d Shield, whenever her w is down try to harass her before she hits 6, once she has ult she can kill you whenever she wants if you make a mistake.”
[9.7] Mid Yasuo Guide by Shaawn by Shaawn | Yasuo Player
OmegaSquadVeigar says “This matchup isn't necessarily hard but it's INCREDIBLY annoying to deal with. Through levels 1 and 2 try to poke her for every cs she tries to take (an auto or auto q auto for the electrocute proc). Try to freeze it closer to your tower so you can farm safely after she gets lvl 3 and be at less of a risk after lvl 6. What you shouldn't do is ever try to trade with her in her shroud, just walk away and wait for it to time out, then you can try to get some free autos and q's. If she hits her E on you, wait like 1 second to see if she immediately follows it (if she does drop your cage so that the edge of it is just right under your feet). If she doesn't, just wait cautiously prepared to drop the cage. If you ever waste your cage and she's close enough to land the first part of her R and she does it, Flash instantly and try to dodge the E, if you don't.... Well, you're dead unless she's really behind and you've got MR. In the mid game and late game this matchup is easy, again, as long as you don't waste your cage you should be able to burst her down with GLP W Q if she doesn't have her Banshee's up and she doesn't dodge them. (Zhonya's is a death sentence for her late game due to W Q having ~2 sec cd).”

apsonalol says “Akali é uma match up muito complicada por que as skill da sona precisa de target e quando ela entra na fumaça fica impossível você fazer qualquer tipo de coisa, o melhor a se fazer nesse caso é rushar zhonya o mais rápido possível e tentar intervir nos roaming dela, entregue a lane phase mas sempre preste atenção pra ultar ela em team fights ou se você tiver noção tentar prever os pick off que ela pode querer fazer.”

MaybeHope says “Akali is not that hard to play against. You can bully her in the early game and use Mantra Q when she is in her W. You will most likely hit her when you aim in the middle.

moutenn says “ She should be an ok easy kill pre 6. After you cant really kill her unless she is the one who engages. If you open with r, she will use her shroud. You can try and predict, but she will most likely just wait in her w till deathmark has popped. One good thing is that there is a chance that she will buy Hourglass later. Which is good. Lategame there is a big chance that she will engage. If this is the case - go ahead and kill her. BTW you cant do anything ti reveal her. She is invisible, so you can do nothing unless you are under tower. Or have kleptomancy - for some reason. (DONT HAVE KLEPTOMANCY)”

qasddsa says “You can dodge her ultimate with Riftwalk and can just wait out her shroud. In lane, she's relatively easy to deal with by just poking with Null Sphere and maxing Force Pulse. Outside of her shroud, she's extremely easy to burst down with a stacked Riftwalk and full spell rotation.”

Try to poke her and stun her whenever she dashes towards you.”

Draczor says “Unwinnable, Akali is just too strong and there is no real way to counter her. She's got great sustain and getting too close to her will let her deal at most 2 Q's and one AA that will leave you with half HP. Try to not stay in range of her Q and get hit by her Shuriken. If she got's ultimate you definitely do not want to be too deep in lane cause she will just straight up kill you. Luckily she get's banned most of the time but if not and you end up facing her in the lane, try to farm up and not die.”

Andicus says “Mostly 50/50 depending on skill but you can beat Akali fairly easily. She will most likely wait for you to ult before using her shroud so try to bait it out before going in on her. You can find where she is if you hit her in the shroud with your E. After you do that you could Q where she was/will be. If you aren't confident in guessing where she will be after you spot her with your E, you can wait until the shroud is gone. Though, your ult will be gone by then. ”

Tips Against Akali in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “I don't find Akali much of a problem but she can snowball out of control if she gets fed or gets a lot of jungle help. You should win most trades with her early and if she ever uses her shroud poorly you want to go all in and punish her for it, also when she is in her shroud you want to keep your W on since they usually pop out to trade with you and then go back invisible, having your W on means you can still trade back because it will lock onto her instantly. once you get a completed item + merc treads she just doesn't have the burst to kill you usually if it's even score, if you're slightly behind and the Akali is running ignite you can go for a hexdrinker in this matchup, also you want to try to use your ultimate after you land an E in this matchup since akali is very slippery, unless she ults away and is low then you can try to use your ultimate to snipe her. You should also outscale her pretty hard in teamfights unless she is very fed.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Never trade with Akali, while her shroud is up! Your poison will reveal her location so keep an eye on where her shadow appears next so you can avoid her gap close to trade with her. Unlike when she was first released, she is no longer unstoppable. You will have enough time to throw out a (Q) or (E) before she hides again on her shroud. You can use minions to body block her (E) shuriken she can also use it to dash over walls and gain distance from you. Do not let her land this or you LOSE the trade immediately. You must try your best to side step or bait her (E) before attempting while her shroud is down! Spectre's Cowl into Spirit's especially if they have more than one AP champion on their team.

Sovereign Kitten says “Never trade with Akali, while her shroud is up! Your poison will reveal her location so keep an eye on where her shadow appears next so you can avoid her gap close to trade with her. Unlike when she was first released, she is no longer unstoppable. You will have enough time to throw out a (Q) or (E) before she hides again on her shroud. You can use minions to body block her (E) shuriken she can also use it to dash over walls and gain distance from you. Do not let her land this or you LOSE the trade immediately. You must try your best to side step or bait her (E) before attempting while her shroud is down! ”

YoungTact says “Her Q out ranges yours so don't look for trade on the first one. After she uses one she doesn't have enough energy for a Second so then look to apply the Lane Harass Combo. Do no trade whilst shes shrouded either because its like fighting a ghost. W her E with good reaction times. Teamfights W her R.”
Pathetic Singed says “Akali can be a pain to play against, but she can't cast her E or R whilst standing on your W. She can be solo killed if you can tank her damage but is easy enough to play against as you outdamage her early with your E. Most Akali's outplay themselves but if given the chance to combo you, it's hard not to die.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN HER FAVOR. DON’T TAKE BAD TRADES. DON’T MISS YOUR OWN QS. DON’T EAT FREE EMPOWERED AUTOS. TRY TO CANCEL HER DASHES WITH YOUR E. DON’T FIGHT IN SMOKE UNLESS YOU KNOW YOU WILL KILL HER. CONQUEROR OR AFTERSHOCK ARE BOTH GOOD INTO HER. START DSHIELD. SWEEPER IF SHE IS OUTPLAYING YOU IN HER SMOKE TOO OFTEN. Akali is a problematic matchup for quite a few Darius players but if you understand the champion, it becomes easier. The key to winning an Akali matchup is not taking bad trades and not eating her empowered autoattacks for free. Don’t take trades level 1 that go beyond just a simple Q, as she can chunk you out to the point where you can’t even fight back anymore. Level 2 is where the tides turn, as you get access to one of your CC abilities that let you hold her in place. Akali only beats you in an all in if she is able to kite you so stick to her and kill her. Don’t miss your own Qs. If you have an idea of the Akali Q range, you can time it as she goes in so that you both get hit. And since your Q is stronger, you will win the trade. Unless you are aiming to all in and kill her, and KNOW that you can do so, don’t fight in or around her smoke. Make sure she has to walk out quite a bit if she wants to damage you further. This way you can trade back. Another plus of playing Darius is that your bleed ticks, show you where the Akali is when she is invisible. If you are on low ping and are good at predicting, you can effectively cancel all of Akali’s dashes with your E. You can even cancel her ultimate’s damage if you pull her before she reaches you. The easiest dash to cancel will be her shuriken jump. Doing that will immediately destroy her. Her level 6 powerspike is STAGGERING. She can straight up kill you from full HP with her ultimate. Try not to fuck around with her too much when you're low hp at this point. DO NOT lose lane to her, as a fed Akali is going to be a nightmare to face. She will be able to kill you with ease, even if you are under turret. If you do lose lane, try to pick up CS under turret without being poked down too much from her. Conqueror is my go to but Aftershock is an excellent choice for a more secure lane, as it neutralizes her burst. Do not underestimate her when you have a few kills on her, as her damage is crazy high either way. If you are getting unbelievably stomped, then you should invest in some early MR options like Cowl. ”

PH45 says “The reworked Akali can prove to be quite annoying but she got pretty gutted so she isn't that often seen anymore. Fight her when her shroud is down but care about her burst. Also try to not eat her Q for free since she will chunk you down fast with those + her empowered auto afterwards. She can also be tricky to kill due to her multiple dashes. Most of the time I just buy a Tiamat in this matchup, try to shove in and potentially roam or just keep her under tower since the kill pressure on her isn't that high unless she takes dumb fights with you.”

qasddsa says “Your E can outrange her Q, but if you stop to use it while she's moving up, she can hit you with her Q. Her abilities besides her Q have a high cooldown, so whenever she uses them you need to punish her immediately after. I recommend taking Press the Attack in this matchup as it'll allow you to easily deal damage to her while her shroud is up. You should go some form of defense against her, whether that be Hexdrinker or Wit's End.”

Bait out her Qs by walking back and forth to make her waste her energy, if you get hit by it do not let her use the empowered auto attack that follows it. Avoid standing inside her shroud until you have a low enough cooldown on your Q as you cannot auto attack her while invisible. Try to pull her out of her shroud if possible.

Rhoku says “Akali is a very annoying matchup to fight. The changes have added counterplay but if you don't pay attention, she can chunk you out very easily. Don't let her hit her empowere autos. It is too much damage. Later on, you need to start punishing her. Try to save your Es, as you will need them to stop her from getting away as she is VERY slippery. In an all in, you do win as long as you hit your Qs and keep close to her with your passive. Overall, Rylai's makes this matchup much easier so wait for that. It might be a bug but he shroud doesn't go away in Mordekaiser ultimate. The stats are still useful though.”

LoLReal says “This is a somewhat difficult lane for us. Akali trades very hard early and it's difficult to answer trades back with her shroud up. Try to bait out shroud and then punish her. If we can not give up too much early we end up outscaling and winning lane after 6. Always try to bait out shroud before ulting in this match up or she can stall our R duration out in camouflage.”
LoLReal says “This match up is Darius favored. Be careful of her double Q at level 1 it does deceptively high damage. Trade heavily if she tries to harass you in your wave. Shroud is annoying.”
Ravenborne says “Aftershock is probably mandatory into this matchup. Be sure to not let her empowered AA after her Q hit you. Engage with Q into W and when she dashes out and back in to get extra Damage, E her for your Aftershock proc and then wittle her down. It's quite tricky but you can time your Q heal with all her dashes - it takes a bit of practice.

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP / SPELLBOOK SETUP - CLOTH ARMOR + 4 POTS / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Akali is somewhat similar to Ahri but with a lot more of mobility and a usefull (to her) Shroud that allows her to play super aggressive without being really able to punish her even later on to the game as Nasus. In this matchup depends a lot in her runes. If she goes Conqueror, just look to farm and if you play it properly at lvl 6 with Sheen you should be able to solo kill her. If she goes for Fleet Footwork, just farm and then in the midgame or lategame you should be able to beat her 100-0 if played properly. If she goes for Electrocute you have to be really careful since she can deal a lot of damage even later on, just farm and look for doing teamfights where you are peeling your carry (if it is either your Midlaner, ADC or even your jungler), usually Akali looks to kill the squishy targets, not the tanky ones like Nasus. Akali will struggle a lot in teamfights since if she leaves for 1 seconds her Shroud in front of your team, she is dead but still she can deal a lot of damage and is usually a skill matchup later on in a 5v5 (in the Splitpush, she clears wave so fast and disengages so well it's not really worth trying).”

Shumair says “This matchup used to be easy before she recieved a ton of buffs. Now, the lane is thin ice in the early stages of the game. You need to avoid getting hit by her Q poke and concede some cs if you need to. At level 6, she can all in you and win so be careful. If you're even or just a bit behind, you can back and beat her after that. I suggest an early Null-Magic Mantle. In terms of combat, you should try to guarantee an E or Q when she uses her second E as it's her most linear ability. You ult should be used if her shroud is down and she has less than half energy. Tread carefully early and outscale her in the 1v1. Whoever gets the first kill normally snowballs and wins lane.”
Fan22 says “i didnt face her yeet but i can imagine her being a pain to deal as. i think Dorans shield its better than corrupt pot since it lets you survive the extremme harras of akali. once you had a adaptative helm or some MR you can actually fight her because her Q spam reduces your passive cooldown.”

StrikeX114 says “As threatening as Akali is late game, you will be facing her at her weakest. An overall squishy champion that relies on executes for victory, the health you build greatly reduces her threat potential and renders her vulnerable to your minions. When she activates her Twilight Shroud (W), fire a Prowling Projectile through one of the lengths of the shroud. In doing so, you will have fairly ample knowledge for her location based on whether or not your ability hit it's mark.”

If there is always a minion between the two of you, it will be impossible for her to land her E on you and engage. Akali is very prone to poke. Try to poke her down as much as you can to make it much harder for her to look to trade with you. Play around Akali’s Shroud W. Once it’s down, you should look to trade with her. If she activates it mid-fight, back off until it’s down. The invisibility it provides can make it hard for you to kill her, so playing around it will ensure you come out ahead. ”

Her shroud has a 2-second longer cooldown than your level 1 E, so use that 2 second window if she walks close when your taunt gets up after her W if it's up.

If you are a good Garen player, you can jebait a Flash from Akali after Chaining Q into E and spin around her Shadow Swamp Smoke Bomb thingy. Don't even have to Ignite. When she is visible and you Q again, she will Flash without hesitation. EZ”

Pyroen says “Akali is a pain for many top lane champs, but generally doesn't scare Swain very much. Most of your damage comes from AOE abilities. You will quickly become too tanky for her to burst.”
Pyroen says “You are squishy and Akali has very quick burst, but if you quickly use your W to quickly retreat under your tower you can hopefully be safe, but she can tower dive and escape quickly with her R so don't let your guard down.”
Flagoony says “Before she hits level 6, you can look to poke her down. After she hits level 6, you can't walk up to far as she will engage and kill you. Stay near your tower and poke her down before she engages so that you can kill her with your burst.”

Sir Obliterator says “Trade Q's with her. Try to bait her's out by walking up and walking back if you want. When her smoke is up if she shows, she's visible enough to land an auto attack. So toggle target champions only and hit her when she's visible. If you have ghost and she's in the smoke - ALL IN. Post 6 if she uses R defensively (to escape) walk away. If she uses R to kill you, just keep fighting her. TL;DR read it. There's no summarizing an Akali matchup Kryptonite: Maw of Malmortius, Mortal Reminder and Adaptive Helm (MAYBE a thornmail since she auto's you after a Q)”

Her damage early is nuts and if she goes in for a basic Q+Passive Proc start just poke back. If you can windwall one of her q's early she won't be able to win a trade because of how much energy she needs. If you can bait out her W you can go for an all in. Fight in a minion wave to give you a easier chance at dodging her abilities. Taking Oracle Lens is a good idea after laning phase so you can see what she is doing while in Shroud. Take Conq.”

EntxRecoil says “Fleet Footwork Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Early game against Akali you want to mostly look to farm, if you have an opportunity to trade with high fury/hp level one, that is probably your only chance for a solo kill in this matchup. Akali has very strong short trades and it is very hard to all in against an Akali because of her shroud and her shuriken flip. This matchup is a farm matchup, can look for small trades with akali once you get tiamat and potentially out sustain her for an allin. Akali can make it hard to full on all in, the matchup is all about taking effective short trades and outsustaining her. In side lanes when you are splitting be careful of akali in the mid-game look to split/fight away from her. Most of the time you will look to shove in waves and then get neutral camps or rotate and flank the enemy team while akali has to deal with your wave that you just shoved.”

Premièrement, prend note de la portée de son A, et mets toi à la limite, quand elle essaiera de lancer son sort, elle s'arrêtera un instant le temps de l'animation, à ce moment tu fais un pas en avant et fait ton E, suivi de ça, tu fais tout de suite ton Z pour la ralentir,elle va E loin mais elle sera ralentie, tu en profites pour A, elle va passer en invisibilité, continue de lui mettre la pression et tu devrais gagner surtout si tu as le fantôme.

WayOfTheTempesst says “This matchup is actually a lot easier top lane than it is midlane just because Akali wants to only fight you when her shroud is up. Since the lane is a lot longer, she can’t really hide under tower during her shrouds downtime which is the only time you can try to fight her at all. You can try to poke her with Q level 1 but you should never take a prolonged fight. Akalis level 1 is probably one of the best in the game and she will most likely be too mobile to fight and she can spam Q up to 3 times which can easily all in you if she has ignite. Level 2 you do have a chance to fight her but first you have to bait out her shroud without taking too much damage while she's in it. As soon as it runs out you have about 15 seconds to take a fight with her while your conqueror is up, this gets even easier at level 3 when you can windwall one of her q’s or e’s while she trys to get away from you. I know a lot of people hate Akali and think she’s the most broken champion in the game but if you play the matchup smart and just never fight when her shroud is up you have a huge advantage over her and actually isn’t too hard of a matchup 1v1. At level 6 it’s a very good idea to ult her when her shroud is on cd and force her to ult, her ult is way more important than yours in all ins. Hex or Wits is a must in this matchup.”

Nabura says “A matchup which used to be borderline impossible, but is now fairly easy as she has been nerfed so many times. Just make sure the wave is pushing towards you and you'll be safe to farm up to 2-3 items where you start to win 1v1. A small trick is to let her Q you inside your minion wave to force her to push towards you. If you're in a long lane before your 3 core items SHE WILL KILL YOU WITH YOUR ULT UP.”

Camille's weak early game is what gives her so many difficult matchups especially if you are going against someone that has a kit that can counter yours. If your opponent knows how to play their champion correctly, then you WILL have trouble. Its a matter of understanding your opponent, watching their pattern & taking advantage of the openings.

Discord Rengar Mains says “Very annoying champ who can poke you down with ridiculous ease and confuse the hell out of you with her shroud. However, she is very snowball reliant and if she falls behind she won't come back. Early levels are in your favor until she starts getting more and more points in Q, then at 6 you need to be careful or she will snowball out of control. If you are able to kill her at least twice you will be fine for the rest of the match, she can't do anything to you unless you fuck it up majorly.

lugzinho says “Try not to get Q, auto'd, Q, auto'd Kled is one of the champions that can follow an Akali with your E and R. Your E and Q can reveal her in her Twilight Shroud.”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “Due to how weak Akali currently is, this is a lane you should win. You don't care about her E as it just gives your auto-attack time to charge and thus it doesn't actually help her mitigate any damage. You can just poke her out early and farm up. Level 6 she does still get some form of kill pressure, but you can flay her out of her ultimate so just time it correctly. If Akali gets buffed she will probably move up the list, but I will watch patch notes and move her if needed.”

6MillionBreads says “She's squishy and meelee range so you get lots of opportunities to harass her with Q's and W's while she's farming just watch our for her Q into passive auto pokes. If she tries to hide in her W you can literally stand in it with Bami's and just spam W to punish her for being a baby”

Tigy says “Akali somewhat loses to Kled but if she plays smart around her shroud and kites you, you will die. Also if she saves her e and shroud for when you dismount, you won't be able to auto attack her. Your e and q marks her in shroud but that's only when you are on Skarl.”

Darkseige555 says “You have have a lot of room to outplay her, but she has a lot of room to outplay you as well. Even after the nerfs, she hurts quite a lot and try not to walk in a shroud unless you have a bigger health pool than her. Take sunfire cape and build mr to be able to punish her if she tries to stale the fight in shroud.”

NoxianBlood says “Akali does Ad and Ap damage so getting Armor and magic resist will make her very useless once you played safe in laning phase and got the items, but don't trade her in laning phase she will deal so much damage that will drop your health pool down with few combos from her, and also when she drops the smoke bomb don't fight her while she's in her shroud, she will have the advantage, wait it out, and all in her once you see her use all of her abilities”

Askio says “Akali is poke heavy, but the combination of her nerks, Bami's cinder and your E mean she can't hide from you. Just don't get cocky, and build grievous wounds if she rushes Hextech Blade. ”
CocaineSinged69 says “Akali has really much mobility and can make every 4 seconds a Q because of the high base energy regen. Just stay passive all the time or try to perma push and dodge the abilities.”

VicGal96 says “Very annoying champ who can poke you down with ridiculous ease and confuse the hell out of you with her shroud. However, she is very snowball reliant and if she falls behind she won't come back. Early levels are in your favor until she starts getting more and more points in Q, then at 6 you need to be careful or she will snowball out of control. If you are able to kill her at least twice you will be fine for the rest of the match, she can't do anything to you unless you fuck it up majorly. Either Ignite or TP works here, and you can pick any runes you want, but if you REALLY want to secure an early lead then Grasp is ideal.”
Split King says “Akali loses to Teemo HARD pre 6. But if she manages to stay even until level 6 she can easily all-in the Teemo. I would say this matchup is slightly in Teemo's favor. But it all depends on how much of a lead you are able to gain pre 6.”

BeautifulWinter says “Due to the invisibility as well as how dashy she is it makes it hard to land an E. Play passive until level 6 and then push her under turret when your ult is up.”

Valorkyrie Quinn says “High burst, strong waveclear. Before level 6 is your only window of hope against her. Destroy her ASAP, if not, she can burst you out once she hits 6. Tip: Play aggressive early game. When she walks up for last hitting minions, blind her with Q, land some auto attacks for more damage. After 6, look for roams if possible after clearing your minion waves. You are unable to survive Akali's high burst as Quinn.”

Big Belly Bop says “Pre-6 she is useless, poke her down with autos, Q's, and force her to back. As Senna, you have no kill pressure unless they are already low or you are fed. Focus on roaming mid, getting good ults across map to help the team, and managing the wave properly. Post-6, she will be able to all-in you 24/7 with her ultimate.

R3action says “TLDR: This is a skill matchup game, you need to play carefull with her (Without Ghoul) Everytime she wants to trade with you always AA > Q Use your W ( wall ) if you want to run away from her, dont get hit by her mark, Stack up your ghouls and dont open them if u dont need. (With ghouls or graveyard ready ) Land your E as usual to get mark of her, if she did open her smoke then follow your minions as your minions is chasing her despite shes invisible. If you can estimate her movement, you can just W to stop her and you can trade with her. ”
Yorick Experience ( Top,Mid,Adc,Sp) by R3action | Yorick Player
9690 says “This is a somewhat difficult lane for us. Akali trades very hard early and it's difficult to answer trades back with her shroud up. Try to bait out shroud and then punish her. If we can not give up too much early we end up outscaling and winning lane after 6. Always try to bait out shroud before ulting in this match up or she can stall our R duration out in camouflage.”
Mordekaiser [V10.4] Speed (Movement Speed + Attackspeed) by 9690 | Mordekaiser Player
Loevely says “Can be annoying early on, but becomes much easier post level 3. Your ult now hard counters her shroud so ganking her after 6 is almost always a guaranteed kill provided she doesn't have ult. Fleet/Electro/HoB are all solid into Akali.”

Noc7urnalz says “A good Akali top lane can be a 'niightmare' for noc as she is one of the most mobile top laners you can face , plus she has her W and going for extended trades vs her is actually pretty hard. The way you can win lane vs her is pressure her if she makes a mistake of randomly using her E or W , you can try to all in then. If she is playing safe and not going agressive you should do the same and look for some roams after you reach 6.”
