What does diving mean?

Venturing far into enemy territory

Diving is a MOBA gaming term used in League of Legends (LOL) and Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) that refers to when a player ventures far into enemy territory. There are several types of diving in DOTA, including tower diving and fountain diving.

Diving is a high risk/high reward maneuver. It is high risk because it involves going deep into enemy territory where the likelihood of dying increases. But it is high reward because it can give you a significant edge over an opponent when killing them.
