Riot Games has been on the receiving end of plenty of negative press over the last few months, and the trend has continued with the latest allegations to hit the airwaves.

The former CEO of Counter Logic Gaming, Devin Nash, might have stepped down from his position at the end of 2017, but that hasn’t stopped him from popping back into the forefront of conversation this week.

While streaming on Twitch, Nash launched into a couple of stories that shed some light on just what a day in the life of a Riot employee is like.

Nash was chatting with his viewers when he talked about a trip that he took to the Riot campus where he discovered how little work is actually done by employees at the company.

“Rioters play League of Legends on LAN after work or during work because at Riot Games, you never have to be caught working,” Nash says of the publisher’s work environment. “It’s this open workspace and there’s people playing Diablo 3, there’s people grinding and there’s no actual work going on.”

As Nash continues, he says that he asked the person leading his tour what it was that she does at Riot Games, to which she replied that she “introduces teams to other teams at Riot so they can play League of Legends together to increase workplace efficiency.”

“I’m like, ‘Do you do anything else?’ And she says, ‘No, that’s my job. It’s full-time.’ And I’m like ‘Holy shit!’” Nash said of his interaction with the employee.

Nash didn’t stop there, however, as he said that he stopped at a random employee’s desk to see what it was they did at Riot and the response Nash received was nothing short of spectacular.

“Well, I designed, like, the curvature of Draven’s ass and it took me six months” was the employee’s response.  

Nash’s statements about Riot Games come just months after the company was hit with allegations of sexual misconduct from female employees that had since left the company.

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!
