“She can poke you a lot but after some items you'll be able to keep him pushed in, making her choose between minions and or rotating. Careful for her tether, it's an amazing gank setup.”
“Dont play against this very much, but it is very high damage and very high healing. Any trade where she lands a R->Q is completely lost, especially in early levels. You may be tempted to overplay your lane since you feel like you are against a support but there is absolutely nothing troll about this pick. She has damage, wave clear and movespeed to keep up with the best of mids. Building normal is acceptable but if you see the opportunity, buying early grievous wounds can give you kill pressure, but otherwise I would just farm up and outperform her in lategame. Karma should generally not have kill pressure on you and not keep up with you late game but it really depends on the carries that she is buffing up.”
“Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring).
Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die).
Her only kill potential is by poking you down heavily (go biscuits if needed) or by using W to setup a gank for their jungler. Go for all ins if you want but in this matchup your main purpose is just to be the better damage dealer overall (which you will). Besides that play around the map and roam or try to help your jungler since you will vastly win any 2vs2 (especially if her empowered Q is on cd).”
“Karma is a troublesome pick into akali. She can reveal you in your shroud, poke you, and basically play with you. You want her to play agro on you though, and when she has her cc on you, instead of running away fight her. Try to get as good of a trade as possible.”
“She had a great shield movement, cc and healing. makes ulting a nightmare and nullifies a lot of your dmg. While she probably will not kill you in lane she can poke you out and make late game hard. Take TP and hope. Just kinda a pain to play against. ”
“Her tether gives vision on you while your in your shroud”
“You can E out of chain and punish them if they walk up. Look for hooks because you far out trade them. Her shields and speed make her annoying to deal with but you far out damage her and will win the match up if you can hit your Qs.”
“Really annoying, if she wants to she can just push you in and tether then blast her load on you while you're chained up, no counterplay, proto helps a lot because you can just close the distance to her, a perfect karma won't let you close enough to damage her. Phase Rush recommended.”
“Couse she doesn´t need to do anything but spamming high range spells in laning Phase shes annoying.”
“Start with Boots + Health Potions against Karma.
Her longer range and high early damage makes her a challenge to lane against.
Pre level 6, without jungler help - she will be a real pain so concentrate on farming.
After level 6, assuming you haven't fed her - you should be able to all in her with (R) Tibbers.”
