She is restricted because she wasn't available during the qualification events, simple as that.

Diana is being restricted because this is a much more important tournament and they don't want a potentially unbalanced champion turning a competition of skill into a bout of "Who can learn Diana faster".

I know that riot does not want potentiallly broken champions for Regionals, however if she is too out of line she will be banned, and if she is not, what better place to find out? Ali is perennially banned, or leaving teams regretting not banning him. However he has not been changed or restricted.

What I am asking is what makes Diana different?
They have to start improving somewhere. Those are mistakes to not restrict those champions but I'd rather not have Riot be consistent in mistakes lol.

She's just too strong. The nerf won't be in effect for the players, so, they have to disable her.

The tournament realm is completely separate from the live servers, so you should be fine. Aren't the tournament servers hosted at the location that the event is taking place at?

I really wish you could include the patch next week and just unable Rengar too.
Otherwise we'll see Gragas/Alistar/Corki/Graves Every single game and it's going to be boring.

On the other note, since Season 2 championship is in October, on which patch are they going to play ? Still Diana or a new one ?
