League of Legends play to turn the game around.

LoL veteran Rush has had a tough year since his much-anticipated return to the LCS was cut short after being released by Echo Fox following their underwhelming results in the 2019 Spring Split Playoffs.

Many began to question the Jungler’s individual skill level after a couple of rough season matches had painted him in a negative light, but the fan favorite pro player highlighted just how good he can be after pulling off an incredible play while queuing with Doublelift.

Riot GamesRush has had a tough year after being released from Echo Fox in the off-season.

The pair were playing a game of high-elo ranked duos when Rush demonstrated perfect in-game mechanics and timing to steal the crucial Baron Buff edging the game back in his team’s favor, while surprising Team Liquid’s ADC in the process.

After seeing that the enemy team had targeted the Baron, Rush began to get himself in position claiming that his ability to outplay his enemies with his “Smite” was not given enough credit, “I’m a Smite king, my Smite ability is actually underrated.”

Despite agreeing with Rush, Doublelift had his doubts that the Jungler would be able to pull off the steal, adding, “Okay, I believe you. You’re going to get one-shot by the way.”

It did not stop Rush, however, as he took the chance crossing the wall and managed to deal the last bit of damage to the Baron, giving his team a huge advantage.

Doublelift was shocked at the play, loudly exclaiming, “Oh my God, Rush!” after watching his duo’s incredible outplay.

Despite dying in the process, Rush quickly began boasting his successful prediction to Doublelift, echoing his earlier statement, “See? My Smiting ability is actually underrated.”

The pair went on to win the game quite convincingly, with Doublelift jokingly asking Rush for tips on how to improve throughout the game after watching his performance.

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!
