Focus on farming and look for trades when the enemy uses their abilities on minions. Use W to avoid ganks or heavy trades.

Akali Top -Mid Game:

Look for roams and skirmishes. Akali excels in 1v1s and small fights.

Akali Top -Late Game:

Focus on split pushing and joining team fights. In fights, aim to eliminate high-value targets.

Akali Top - Farming:

Use Q to last-hit minions. If under pressure, use W to safely farm.

Akali Top - Team Fights:

Wait for major CC abilities to be used before diving the backline.

Use W to reposition and avoid focus.

Target squishy champions and use R to execute low-health targets.

Akali Top - Dragon and Nachor Fights:

Dragon: Provide vision and look for picks before starting the dragon.

Baron: Split push to draw attention and join the team if a fight breaks out.

Akali top Matchups:

Bad Matchup (e.g., Aatrox): Tether back and forth to bait out his Qs. Building anti-heal is optional. Use E to dodge his Q2. After level 6, bait out his Q1, dodge Q2 with E1 or R1, and kite him around.

Good Synergy (e.g., Zilean): Zilean can provide speed boosts and revives, allowing Akali to play more aggressively.

Threats & Synergies:

Seraphine: She has range, poke, CC, shields, and healing. However, she's immobile and squishy, making her a potential target for Akali's burst.
