You'd be surprised at how most opponents are dumb =P. Seriously though, I think Akali is really... Underestimated most of the times. But... That's my PoV since Akali is one of my fav char =/ lol.
Also, even if you don't get the combo mark, you can always deny them from exp by shrouding their part of the minions, throwing mark and combo hitting it if they are stupid enuf to come close to you.
Oh, btw. Good guide =D
