Have you seen the forums about Eve? They all complain about her not being good enough... and you nerfed her? I can't even... I don't even know what to say.
what they did to diana essentially lowered the range on her orbs, but slightly extended her shield because she has to be closer. also, her ultimate's range was shorter than her q, which could lead to her hitting a target, but not being able to jump to it. Diana was designed to be an assassin, but an assassin who can't reach their target is pointless, they nerfed her initially because she was a little too powerful, now they are tweaking slightly and giving her ultimate a little bit of range back. This was not a power nerf, simply a gameplay one.
as for evelynn, in my experience, hate spike does quite a bit of damage, and can still be spammed continually. eve regens bonus mana passively while she's invisible, and this spell is incredibly cheap, also her w costs no mana. As well, with her ultimate, it can not only lock down people from an impressive range, but because the damage was based on max hp, and not current, you weren't safe anywhere, even under your turret, if you were below 25% hp. eve may require additional tweaks, but you can't expect perfection in a single patch. That's the whole purpose for the patches. each time they are attempting to bring champs closer in line. Quite simply, especially with her ultimate, eve was able to simply snipe kills from stealth and laugh as no one can respond, and this is not how she was designed, so they're dialing back on the damage a bit. If it turns out that she's not good enough anymore, they will work on improving her again. I mean look at rengar, he's been changed at least 7 times now, or even eve herself, if riot didn't care about your opinion, they would have simply left her incredibly OP with her on command stun and incredible mobility. Every time they are trying to make the champion better while still keeping them true to how they were designed.
