Sure, a good Akali may be able to get 5 kills early game and get pretty strong. But when the team fights starts happening, she's toast.
This just goes to show how little you know about Akali.
Soulstealer and Occult DO now work with her passive, they hotfixed that a few days after she came out.
Also, Akali is phenomenal in teamfights, probably moreso than any other assassin.
LoL's anti-snowballing measures make assassins better in LoL than they would be in DotA, since LoL has less reliance on a hard-carry.
