Which one is better on Dominion? I've only seen Akali on Dominion once, and she completely stomped the other team, it was ridiculous, yet I hear Akali is underpowered and not worth getting at the moment. I've seen a few Diana's, and they did meh, but Diana looks really fun.

Diana, much more solid champ

Diana is OP and takes no skill, just get the right build and autoattack for retarded passive damage while being impossible to kill. Akali is a bit underpowered, and Sweeper is too easy of a counter.

Teemo, she might be Op but Teemo just screws over her

Diana's kit brings a little more to the fight and to me can be easier to play. I would definitely play the Diana for the power, but both are fun.

Diana is a shameless Akali replacement, much like many releases as of late being updated 6300 rereleases of older champions. Her Q and W and both clearly better (and her W isn't totally negated by sweeper), and doesn't need a specialized rune page and itemization to not suck. Don't waste IP on Akali until Riot decides to do something with her.

akali really benefits from having an rune page/mastery page of her own to get both her passives active at the start, so its a bit more of an investment. (tho i've been recently hearing of an ad akali build that is supposed to be very good? i'm going to be testing this in the coming weeks). she can be an extremely strong pubstomper, but it depends on the elo - if you are lower elo and no one ever buys sweeper, then so for it, but if not then shes not quite as good. i'd say diana is probably in a bit better of a place right now, but they are both viable and fun.

Akali is quite viable, but Diana is pretty clearly heads and shoulders above her. She's just as good at playing assassin, and has the massive advantage of a powerful ranged AOE nuke for harrassing.

Diana.

This coming from someone who plays in high elo and DDs, Diana is almost exclusively better. As soon as you reach an elo of relative height, whenever you play akali you can expect an early game Sweeper or lightbringer, and the subsequent end of any efficacy you could've had.

Diana on the other hand will almost always be a nuisance well into the late game assuming you build her correctly.
