So I took a little while off from LoL, and when i left, Akali had been nerfed and she wasn't really seen too much. Lately though, I have seen a number of akali's both top and mid, and they have been REALLY scary. And not only if they get completely fed. It seems like she deals some pretty huge early game damage.

So what's the story? What is the state of akali right now? Best top or mid? And how strong apick?

She is really good either top or mid. Personally I play her mid more because I prefer mid lane and she beats most mid lane match ups while if you go top there is a higher chance that your lane opponent will be able to beat you.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

Lee sin demolishes her. Akali is Lee Sin's ***** in lane.

Thanks to Amazing Monkey for the sig. Just like his name, he's amazing

I can give a quick off the top of my head of who she wins/loses against in mid where i play her

Beats:
Ahri
Ezreal
Twisted Fate
Heimerdinger
Lux
Morgana
Teemo
Veigar
Ziggs
Annie
Anivia
Xerath

Loses to:
errr no one will always beat you. You'll only really lose mid if you play like s*** really

People who CAN beat you:
Brand (never lost to him but i'm sure he could win)
Fizz (same story)
Talon
Kassadin (maybe? I dunno I always beat him but my friends swear I shouldn't)
Gragas (tanky and he has poke. Two things Akali hates)
Galio (never played him but it would make sense for him to beat her)
Vladimir (i'm 50/50 against this guy, but I blame myself for playing badly)
LeBlanc (it's all about outplaying her. If you can do that you're good to go)
Karthus (jumping onto him kills you.)
Kennen (i dunno I've never actually played against him)
Ryze (if you jump on him he can just snare you and burst you down. Only a really good one will beat you though)


Again keep this in mind. These people aren't people who beat Akali they're people who CAN beat Akali if you play badly. Also this is all from my own experience, not a bunch of "well he counters her for this reason and da-da-da-da". It's just who I've beaten and who has come close to beating me.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

^ ^ Swain can stomp her in lane, or at least I never lost to her in lane. But if a fed one comes from top and I'm not fed, she'll open me up like it's christmas q.q

Also, a good anivia and a fast-reflexes twisted fate may be able to do you in.

Generally anyone with CC can pose a threat
to Akali. Especially if it's able to make her
shrowd null. Such as Anivia. If Akali throws
her Shrows, Anivia just uses her ult on it.

I totally forgot about Swain lol. Yeah When I see him I go top or if I can't I just have to tower hug and hope for the best until I can start roaming and getting fed off of other lanes lol.

I could see a good Anivia maybe beating me, but I've crushed too many TF's to be worried about him.
