In my opinion, Riven is much more overpowered than Darius, mostly because with her abilities she can strike and dodge at the same time. Sure Darius has his ultimate, but it's only good if you can apply your passive quick enough. I played Riven against Darius a lot, and I would say she holds her own really well. Even when we do exchange blows, Riven has a shield that can block some of the damage dealt. I do, however, like the fact that Darius can pull you in and slow you. But even with that I can Valor my way out, then use Broken Wings to get out of range.

Who do think is more deadly?

Darius will and should win all trades. The only advantage riven has is her mobility and being manaless. Personally i think darius is more deadly in lane, and riven is better in team fights due to her CC.

As a general champion, riven helps team comp and wins games more.

In a lane, a good Darius will beat a good Riven.

I must have been playing against some really bad Darius' then, because I found myself tower diving by Lvl 5 and killing him alone

I played that match once as Riven. The whole lane phase was just him pushing to my turet and me farming from there. It was very boring.

Imo Riven beats Darius in lane. You go in, knock up, stun, dash out. Wait for cooldowns. Repeat. You'll be out of pull range by the time he's out of your stun. Unless he rushes merc treads.

There's no such thing as a "noob champ".
