General info

This comp revolves around Akali as the main carry in a 6 Assassin and 4 Ninja comp. Akali is ideally 3 starred, as she is the main carry of the team comp.

When to make

Go for this comp if you find a Chosen Akali. You can make this comp work with any Chosen Assassin, but having a Chosen Akali gives you 3 copies toward a 3 star Akali.

  • Level up to 4 early if you want to start a win streak. Level up to 5 to try and continue the streak.

  • If you're weak in the early game, you can opt to save gold and lose streak instead.

  • At Round 1, level up to 7. Roll down to stabilize your comp if you are weak.

  • Once you are at 50 gold, you can slow roll for Akali 3. If you are very strong or healthy, you can wait until level 8 to begin slow rolling, but you may fall behind if you do this.

Game plan
Early Game

Since you ideally want a Chosen Akali, you can play just about anything you want in the early game. Something simple like Cultist Assassin is an example of a solid start.

Mid Game

Ideally you will find a Chosen Akali in the mid game. You can start building around her with more Assassin units. If you find an early Shen, you can also put in 4 Ninjas, but that likely won't happen until level 7.

Additional comp tips
  • You really want to find Shen at level 7. This will give you a power spike with 4 Ninjas on the board. If you take too long to find Shen, you will spend too much gold holding onto Ninja units on your bench. Try to find a balance between staying strong while also keeping enough gold to slow roll for Akali 3.
