Akali likes to abuse her Twilight Shroud to gain the upper hand in fights, and if the opposing person buys pink wards her dueling capabilities plummet.

Diana does pretty much everything Akali does, except while being much tankier and having a hard CC.

She needs to snowball or it's basically 4v5.

1) She requires snowball and/or serious farm to not fall off hard into late game.

2) Pink wards shut her down.

3) High durability champs with AOE (say: Garen, or Shen) can make her completely useless if they counter lane.

4) Good counter-play shut her down (ie: don't fight in the shroud, know her cooldowns and energy mechanic, so you know when to harass her, etc.)

5) She can't initiate onto a team without exploding if they have any kind of hard CC.

6) She's not really viable anywhere except mid in the current meta, where she has a few solid counter picks that can shut her down.

400 gold is a cheap price to destroy her smoke. Once that's down she's easy prey.

Also Lee Sin.
