Is there any point in playing Diana anymore?

So, with that in mind, some people might have ideas as to how to make her a bit more viable in one or a couple of those directions, but still keeping her thematically consistent.

One of the things I think Diana achieves from a gameplay standpoint, and I am a TERRIBLE judge of this, is decent themeatics. When I play her I feel like a self-immolating martyr, which I think is appropriate, but it might not have the best result in the actual playing of the game!

Either way, I've thrown this towards Live Design. AGAIN! No idea if they'll have a look, but who knows. I genuinely like playing Diana, I like her pattern, so for me it's not really about having a part in her creation as it is a feeling as a player. Only reason I chime in here is because I do play her a lot, I do sympathize, and I have heard that a couple of people might look into her current state. I normally can't do this with many other champions unless I have an intimate knowledge of them.

Sorry to play favorites! Not my intention, I just happen to be familiar with her



Thank you for letting one of my old favorite champions get a second look I appreciate it

IronStylus, well-written post I really appreciate that one!

Are you perhaps interested in passing on similar concerns with Quinn? In addition to her gameplay, also the low-res visual.

I've hosted many Quinn threads & there's still tons of debate/frustrations over much of her playstyle/visuals.

Bump. Used to main her. Wish I still could. Her early game is just so weak now though and it's so much harder to jungle with her(I main jungle).

Of course you played her religiously. She was broken as **** OP.



All high elos do nothing but exploit the games current most OP champions.

You always play favorites though, it is so easy to get information about Diana or Leona from you. But when it comes to other champions getting information about them either takes forever or is just impossible.

That's just because I'm more active on the forums than most. High visitation = high visibility.

I just...don't even.

Diana was never broken op. She was strong. Strong =/= Broken or OP. I played her because I enjoyed her play style. I was using her LONG after pro players stopped using her. Please don't say silly things that you have no understanding of.

S4 jungle changes have made tanky-brusier jungler Diana quite viable IMO.


Ancient Golem -> Nashors -> Void Staff (can vary depending on team) and you can carry from the jungle in gold/plat from what I've been doing.
