Riot Games have announced the return of Watch Missions that saw numerous fans earning in-game rewards as they cheered on League of Legends pros battling it out during Worlds, but the company is looking to expand the program in 2019.

Riot Games first introduced the Esports Watch Rewards on September 10, and are now looking to make good on their promise of expanding their offering by opening the project to regular season games for various leagues around the world.

In a blog post, the company announced that esports viewers can start earning Icons, Emotes, XP and Blue Essence for watching Spring Split games starting January 11 with the CBLOL in Brazil, but players will have to follow a simple setup to start earning rewards.

To get in on the fun, players will have to visit Riot’s viewing client, and opt-in to the reward program by signing into their League account.

Moreover, the program will only reward those who watch at least 10 minutes of a live game or VoD on the embedded YouTube or Twitch streams on the watch.lolesports.com site.

Riot GamesThe starting dates for the Watch Missions by league, however all missions end on April 23.

The company said they hope to grow the program as Riot collects suggestions and feedback from the community, as fans surely will notice the omission of the LCK and LPL from the eligible leagues.

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!
