In hopes to turn things around and qualify for the Spring Split Playoffs, 100 Thieves have decided to bench veteran mid-laner Choi “Huhi” Jae-hyun in favor of rookie Max “Soligo” Soong.

100 Thieves currently sit at a 4-8 record in the LCS, tied for the last place alongside Clutch Gaming and Echo Fox. They will need to win the majority of their games from here on out to have a chance at securing their place at the Spring Playoffs in St Louis, Missouri.

Speculation around this roster change first started when it was announced that Huhi would be the starting mid-laner for their LCS Academy team in their game vs FlyQuest Academy on Friday, March 8.

The switch was finally confirmed when 100 Thieves released an episode of their documentary series ‘The Heist’, in which their LCS head coach, Neil “pr0lly” Hammad explained their thoughts to bench the veteran.

He explained that although Huhi had great communication and a good supportive style, Soligo brings a slightly different team-fighting style and said that “Soligo would be able to play a lot more for himself, when we’ll need that sometimes”

Towards the end of this week’s episode of “The Heist”, Soligo said that although he feels a “little nervous” going into this weekend against two of the top teams in TSM and Cloud9.

However, he said that he plans to turn their name tags off in-game and focus on “playing the matchup as he knows it” before finishing the video declaring that “this is a must-win week” for the 100 Thieves squad.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
