Meanwhile Gallo and Urgot going on 1-2 years still catching heavy ability changes and still being complete dumpster mode or the #1 pick of their lane depending on how riot is feeling that patch. Akali got one passover and now she's completely balanced. A starting win rate that actually makes sense for a high skill curve, clearly rewards player investment without being overbearing at the high end of play. CT knocked the design out of the park, and the balance team perfected his work.
It's time to admit you were wrong. Akali is an excellent design.
