League of Legends star Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok has reached yet another milestone in his storied career after surpassing a new kill record in the LCK.

Faker is widely considered as the best League of Legends player of all time and has won three world championships under the Iconic SKT T1 brand.

Despite struggling to replicate his international success in recent years, the popular pro player is continuing to break new records in his regional league, LCK.

Faker has broken yet another record on the LCK stage.

During his series against Afreeca Freecs on March 5, Faker managed to smash another milestone after scoring his 2000th kill during his time on the LCK stage.

The ‘Unkillable Demon King’ took down Afreeca’s support, Jelly, during an intense team fight to hit the record and quickly began working towards the next milestone, picking up another kill almost instantly after.

Faker currently holds the record for the most kills in LCK matches, although there are quite a few players in the region, such as fellow T1 star Teddy, who have over 1000 kills for themselves and are looking to catch him.

Despite Faker hitting the incredible milestone, it was not enough to secure the win and T1 ended up falling short to Afreeca Freecs after a back-and-forth series that finished 2-1.

However, Faker and his teammates are currently tied for second in the Korean league behind Gen.G and are still looking like strong contenders for the title regardless of their recent defeat.

Unfortunately for fans of both Faker and the LCK, the Korean league is now on an indefinite hiatus after rising concerns for Coronavirus in the region.

Fans may have a long wait for the action to resume as normal after Riot revealed that they would be taking precautionary measures following a health scare with host Mina Kim.

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!
