Guide to Countering Akali

  • Akali will try to hide after she uses her abilities in order to reset her cooldown timers. To beat Akali, you can hit her with AOE spells while she is invisible inside Twilight Shroud.
  • Akali counters very squishy team comps. If she is picked by the other team, you should consider brining more tank and/or more CC to shut her down.
  • Akali is very mobile. As a squishy champ, do not stay outside of cover or roam solo if she may be nearby. Most champions have a hard time countering Akali 1:1.
