Uhh speaking of clueless did you just not read what happened to her passive (Her passive is the reason she's so strong if you didn't realize)
- Initial spell vamp gained upon obtaining 10 bonus attack damage reduced to 8% from 10%
- Additional spell vamp reduced to 1% per 6 attack damage from 1% per 5 attack damage
- Initial magic damage bonus upon obtaining 20 ability power reduced to 8% from 10%
- Additional magic damage bonus reduced to 1% per 6 ability power from 1% per 5 ability power
Combined with Gunblade nerf (which was quite substantial) which is her bread and butter item + the passive nerf. That REALLY hurts Akali. On top of that she does already have a lot of competitive play counters top lane. So that + these nerfs drops her down another tier.
Also tier 3 isn't a bad tier. It's a good tier. Means your balanced and a viable pick. Please L2Tierlist before you talk like you have any idea what you're talking about.
Also this is a pick priority to competitive teams list. Meaning she won't be sought after as a first or 2nd pick most likely and if she's picked at all she'll be a lower pick for teams because of these nerfs, thus dropping her down in the competitive pick draft mode tier list. In Solo queue she will remain high because of her ability to snowball so well which happens A LOT less in competitive play as people carry pink wards to specifically counter her and if you have some CC Akali is as good as dead.
The only clueless person you should be speaking down too is yourself with that idiotic post. If you want to debate something, do it with class or all you will get is attitude back. Talk nice to me and I'll talk nice back.
