People don't like it when they aren't able to kill a champ 1v1 so they call for nerfs and claim that champ is OP.
IMO she should get toned down just a bit because she requires a lot more counter play and strategy than a lot of other champions.
Requires more skill than other aspects of game? Tone down pls, noobs might hurt their minds trying to wrap it around the concept of dropping these pink things upon seeing a puff of smoke, or not overextending without wards, or not 1v1ing assassins in general.
Leave as is, these are all things noobs need to learn just to become better at league over all. Sure Akali punishes people more severely for these mistakes, but good for her. If there is nothing in place to put emphasis on these in game aspects, how will people learn their importance?
